Looking for a phone that does it all...

This is it!
The apple iPhone 4 32gb is a great bit of kit. As soon as its in your hands it feels quality and certainly looks quality to. With its glass front and back and slim design you know straight away that you are holding a well built apple product. It oooozes quality and you may be tempted to not even bother with a case, I would get a case if I were you. Imagine dropping your beloved iPhone 4 only to watch it smash! The phones great but I have always been wary about having my phone, "naked" with no case. I would rather feel happy in the knowledge that its protected and safe. (have a griffin silicon style case which protects it - any case in my opinion is better than nothing along with a screen protector)
When you use the phone your instantly amazed at just how clear the screen is. The pinpoint accuracy on photos really is noticeable. The screen resolution really is the best out there. Games look excellent and everything just looks sooo much better than the previous versions of the iPhone. The screen alone is a good enough reason to have the iPhone 4.
The 5 mega pixel camera is a welcome addition, pointing, shooting and looking back at photos is all done smoothly and literally anyone could use the iPhone camera. Its great. The video camera now shoots in 720p HD quality and again this is excellent. Finally a decent photo / video camera on a phone. The quality is more than enough for every day use. I don't use my digital camera anymore, my iPhone ones enough for more but im sure there are people out there that would disagree, so be it! I won't argue that a seperate digital camera provides better results for the more serious photographers out there, but for the rest of us, using the iPhone 4's camera to capture moments while your out and about, its great.
The whole phone is speedier and using GPS and maps is a bit quicker to. 32gb storage should be enough for most people out there. iOS is being updated regulary and this provides welcomed additons to the software eg Air Print (print to any wireless printer - this works very well indeed) it's great to see the software being updated and making it easy for any one to update their phone.
I won't harp on anymore about the iPhone 4. For me the phone's perfect. Perfect for gaming on the go, sending and receiving emails, surfing the internet and more. It really is like having a laptop in your pocket.
If you want a simple phone, that anyone can use, no messing about, the iPhone 4 is the way to go.
Since getting the iPhone 4 i havent looked back. It's an excellent purchase I would recommend to anyone.
Being able to check your emails everywhere, with no hassle.
This is the best smartphone currently on the market.

Iphone 4 - great phone!

|Ease of use|
|Value for money|
The display on Apple’s iPhone 4 is easily the sharpest and most clear display we have seen on the smartphones. The iPhone 4 features 960 x 640 pixel resolution, which holds no comparison to the 480 x 320 resolution that is found on its predecessor, the Apple iPhone 3GS. With such a high resolution, your eyes are unable to see each pixel on the iPhone 4, which results in a much clearer, crisper and more enjoyable display.
The display’s pixels were developed at 78 micrometers wide. According to Apple, because of their small size, Apple was able to pack four times the number of pixels onto the 3.5-inch screen. This results in 326 pixels per inch on the iPhone 4’s, display and it also means your images and text don't appear choppy and pixelated.
The sturdiness of this device is also a key feature of the iPhone 4’s design. The device is small, weighing only 4.8 ounces, but it feels indestructible. The retina display glass is made from the same materials used in helicopters, so if dropping smartphones is a common occurrence for you, the iPhone 4 is one of the best smartphones for you.
Even with each of the advanced features the Apple iPhone 4 offers, smartphones still provides its users with basic call features and high quality. This product features your basic call waiting, caller ID and call holding.
However, smartphones offer a little more than making just your basic calls. The iPhone 4 features FaceTime, which allows you to video call anywhere, anytime. What makes FaceTime one of the best features we found on smartphones was the simplicity it offers the user. Tap a button and you could be seeing your best friend in China or watching your son ride his bike while being miles away from home.
FaceTime also worked directly from the box, which is rare for smartphones that we didn’t have to go through some tedious installation program to begin. The front camera on your device has been created so it has the correct field of view and focal length for the FaceTime feature. However, with another tap of your finger, you can show whomever you may be video calling what is happening from the back of your smartphone using the rear camera.
MY IPHONE 4
The iPhone 4 is a slate smartphone developed by Apple. It is the fourth generation of iPhone, and successor to the iPhone 3GS. It is particularly marketed for video calling, consumption of media such as books and periodicals, movies, music, and games, and for general web and e-mail access. It was announced on June 7, 2010, at the WWDC 2010 held at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, and was released on June 24, 2010 in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan.
The iPhone 4 runs Apple's iOS operating system, the same operating system as used on previous iPhones, the iPad, and the iPod Touch. It is primarily controlled by a user's fingertips on the multi-touch display, which is sensitive to fingertip contact.
The most noticeable difference between the iPhone 4 and its predecessors is the new design, which incorporates an uninsulated stainless steel frame that acts as the device's antenna. The internal components of the device are situated between two panels of chemically strengthened aluminosilicate glass. It has an Apple A4 processor and 512 MB of eDRAM, twice that of its predecessor and four times that of the original iPhone. Its 3.5-inch (89 mm) LED backlit liquid crystal display with a 960×640 pixel resolution is marketed as the "Retina Display". Some iPhone 4 buyers have reported signal reduction when the phone is held in certain ways, especially in the left hand, as the antenna problem is in the bottom left corner of the phone's side casing. The company has offered customers a free case until September 30, 2010, or a refund within 30 days of purchase, as cases have been shown to correct this antenna problem. The latest operating system release, iOS 4.1, added functionality such as high dynamic range photos and the Game Center.
Fantastic phone with some minor flaws!!
The good: Improved performance; lovely new retina screen display that's bright and incredibly crisp and an improved design its a very beautiful phone, much better looking than the previous iphones in my opinion.
It has ton of sorely needed features, both by itself and through the iOS 4 update.
Having not used an iphone before and not being a big fan of touch screen phones I was a little skeptical at first but alas it was a great choice and it has made me feel completely different about touch screen phones. The keys and on screen qwerty keyboard are really responsive and easy to use, even for someone that isn't use to touch screens.
The bad: The reception issue is the probably the biggest down point of this device, without a bumper or case covering the antennas (metal like band around the phone) its impossible to use. With that said you wouldn't use it without a case or some sort of protection anyway so not a big problem. I'm sure apple will rectify this flaw soon, at the moment they do offer free bumpers/cases via a specific iphone free bumper app.
The bottom line: With iPhone 4, Apple again shows that it's a powerful player in the smartphone wars. Its not for everyone but overall a fantastic phone with a ton of features and it looks elegant and simple.
Hope this review helped thank you for reading =)

The iphone 4, All i could possibly say is what an amazing phone!
Its unbelievable able with all its power and the things it can do for your money. Its very worth while to purchase! Its got over thousands of apps to be downloaded, free & paid but they all are worth it. Very cheap prices indeed. They're is so much to do on it! Play games, watch movies, etc. Its got such a vivid great screen. Bright, powerful and High definition. It also is the worlds thinnest smartphone to date! I bought it for work and it worked like a charm. Can do almost anything i can put ahead of it. The iphone came with 12 months free internet as-well which was fab! The camera is fantastic. Can record 1080p HD which is amazing if your a video blogger or something. This phone is for everyone. Its stylish and fashionable as-well. I felt proud of owning one every time i looked at it! It has been criticized for the signal quality but they gave away free cases to solve the signal issue and now the current ones work fine! The phones facetime is remarkable as-well. The quality is fantastic but lacks using it on 3G without jailbreaking which hacks the iphone to get free aps etc. Millions own it so why don't you? Its a great device and worth every penny. Apples service in store and over phone is great! They help you instantly and fix everything most of the time for free! I hope you do look forward into purchasing a iphone 4.
