How can you tell which has better color without knowing what it actually looks like? I mean, is the wall supposed to be richly tan, as in the 4S pic, or lightly tan, as in the 4 pic?

Looks like the white balance is off on the 4S.

Funny how everyone has managed to avoid mentioning the real improvement: less digital noise.

The warmer look of the 4S picture is not "better" -- that's just a difference in white balance.

I like the way colors look on the 4s. More natural it seems.

Actually, without being there it's hard to know which white balance setting is correct for the lighting conditions. Although auto white balance is always hit or miss except for general outdoor unshaded lighting.
