How can you tell it's an iPhone 4S?

Is there any way to tell if a phone is an iPhone 4S or an iPhone 4? I'm sure there must be some chancers on eBay!

Or ask them to pop up Siri

Your best bet to guarantee it's a 4S is to look at/ get a good photo of the antennae. You can see clearly from this photo that the iPhone 4S on the top, has its antennae (the line in the metal casing) next to the headphone jack rather than on the side.

EDIT: Actually the iPhone 4S is on the bottom in the photo and has two antennae on the side vs. one on the iP4.

If you're unsure or the buyer is being ambiguous, just avoid that item on eBay, because there certainly are people who are mis-selling or using misleading terms to get rid of their old iPhone 4.

@martyn_3000
Given that Siri has been ported to iP4 that may not be the ideal method.

Sorry not been on this site before but thought it important to mention. I know very little about iPhones. But have had a 4 for about a year. Looking at the picture you linked mine is the one at
the top the line is definitely near the headphones jack exactly like the top one. My phone is definitely a 4 not a 4S. Would hate anyone to be misled.

Well spotted, my mistake, the 4S is on the bottom not the top.

Thanks the only reason I looked was I spotted the question and then wanted the answer. It had me puzzled for a few mins. I even looked at my OHs.
