Product description

Product Information
At just 9.3mm, the iPhone 4 is thin as a rake but the front and back are 30 times stronger than the usual plastic. Reason - aluminosilicate glass, the stuff that windshields of military choppers are made of. The periphery is customized alloy, 5 times stronger than steel. Your accidental dropping won’t hurt your pocket-communicator. The Retina Display packs in 4 times the amount of pixels (326 per inch) of iPhone 3, and makes the text and images slicing sharp. Thanks to the added 960 x 640 pixel screen watching of HD movies on the iPhone 4 becomes a gasp. When you become a shutterbug behind the iPhone 4 camera, you shoot 5 megapixel images and high-definition videos at 720p resolution, with the LED flash and autofocus that make things easier. Opt for the iMovie video editing software, and you become a movie maker. If you happen to have Wi-Fi around, the FaceTime feature gets you into true worldwide video chat and ‘staying in touch’ becomes real personal. And all it takes to choose between the front and rear camera is a tap. The 3-axis gyro, when coupled with accelerometer, results in 6-axis motion sensing, and that’s as good as it can ever get for gaming on a cell phone. With 7 hours of talk time (3G)/10 hours of video/40 hours of audio, the iPhone 4 packs in enough power to let you do fast multitasking and then some more.

I have always been a big fan of Apple and the major reason is the ease of use and the really good quality that Apple give. OK, I know that Apple have a dominant play in what they produce, however, they have every reason to boast in their growth. The iPhone 'Revolutionized', the Phone market and it keeps doing so. When they released the iPhone4 back in June 2010 it swept everyone away with the new hardware. This time, they completely changed the shape and the design all the way to changing where the antenna goes. With the spare space they, improved the battery the new A$ chip making it 1Ghz worth of Ram and implemented Retina Display. Of course there are many features that would get you drawling, but what about some of the negative points? Well, there was the issue with the antenna, dubbed (Attenagate.) Apple made the mistake in rushing out the new Antenna that ribbons around the outside of the hardware and the two pieces (Antenna and Bluetooth.) That are separated with dashed or dents left your hand or fingers a point of connection when holding the device. Apple soon rectified this with offering the phone back for what you paid for it or a free Bumper that would prevent you from making the connection with your hand. The other issue, well personally for me is the fact that they gave me a new finger print headache with including a glass front and glass back. It now takes aways the nice curve that I loved so much about the previous devices, and Apple even advertised this. To be fair, the way that the iPhone4 is designed, even with the Gorilla Glass used to sandwich the front and back, you just know that a small drop and this expensive baby will break. Some cases with clips had been proved to cause a slight scratch, one of which then goes on to shard the glass and cause the glass to weaken and soon break, but there is no real proof of this. Simple, just get a really nice case for it, there are thousands out there. The thin devise enables any case to still keep your iPhone4 looking slim.

Over all, I think that this is a great phone. Hardware and software and even if the phone has small issues, there is no perfect phone. If there ever was one, then this would be it. We are on the cusp of the 5th Generation iPhone and who knows what next.

I would definitely recommend this as a phone to buy...Go for it...If you can afford it.

An actual iPhone Product Review

Created: 07/04/11
I have received the iPhone 4 as a contract upgrade from 3 - here are my thoughts after a week.

Taking it out the box - first thoughts is wow its heavy and it actually is quite heavy. The weight is due to the construction due to being made of an aluminium chassis with glass front and back covers and of course the added weight of the inbuilt battery. There isn't much in the box - the phone, usb lead, power plug, sim eject tool and a very thin guide.

Battery life isnt that good - but it is powering the 3.5" screen and wifi. I have to charge it fully nearly each day and that with light use and and hour or two wifi use in the evening.

The phone does look good in real aluminium around the edge against the black glass front and back finish is a great contrast. Turning it on the screen is amazing and shouldn't be spoiled with a screen protector. I had a screen protector on for a couple of days but it just made the display fuzzy and the constant air bubbles were a eyesore on my very expensive phone... Apple developed this glass themselves and I'm pretty sure it wont scratch that easily.

Getting the micro-sim inserted was a bit awkward as you have you use the pin-like sim eject tool to eject a small drawer on the right of the phone. As you should only need to do this once its not a big problem.

You then have to connect the iphone to a apple/pc running the latest itunes to activate it otherwise you cant use it (i.e you cant use it straight out the box).

Once activated and turned on its quite instinctive to use just press what you want. As you download apps you might find it getting a bit crowded so if you press and hold on an icon they will all start to shake and will let you drag them around to rearrange them or drop one on top of another similar app (eg game) to create a folder so you can keep all similar apps together. Apps I recommend are eBay, Facebook, Skype, Windows Messenger and your own bank app. Annoyingly you only get the best performance when connected to WIFI. When I'm connected over 3G is really slow to the point I give up. I have also noticed the reception on the iphone is nowhere as good as my previous nokia.

I do find tying messages on the screen in portrait mode a pain so i rotate the phone to landscape - not much better but I make fewer mistakes that way. This makes me miss my Nokia E63 qwerty (blackberry type) keyboard.

The camera and video camera functions are very clear and easy to use.

I do miss the fact that I cant add my own memory card like in nearly every other phone. So I am stuck with the 32GB which is actually less as the phones own software and settings etc. uses nearly 2GB.

At the end of the day it is just a phone and after a week I think of it as no more. Don't get drawn in thinking its the life changing, hyped up device they make it out to be. To be honest now I wish I'd got another qwerty phone and bought an ipod touch. If you love touch screens then there is now doubt this is the best there is - if you are not sure - go and try one for a while in a phone shop or try a friends.
