The first hands-on video of the iPhone 4S has hit the web and early benchmarks suggest the phone’s dual-core Apple A5 processor provides vast improvements over the A4 chip in the iPhone 4. The short one-minute clip from AppVV shows the iPhone 4S achieving a BrowserMark score of 89,567 compared to the iPhone 4’s score of 44,856. In addition, the iPhone 4S garnered a score of 2222.1ms from the JavaScript SunSpider benchmark. That is significantly faster than the iPhone 4, which scored 10669.4ms. The video also reveals a unique way to interact with Apple’s Siri voice-command engine. Inside the Settings menu, there is an option to “raise to speak,” which will allow a user to activate the service by simply raising the iPhone 4S to his or her head. Siri language settings and a few other options are also nestled inside the menu. Hit the jump for the full video clip.
