Welcome to the Apple iPhone 4 review (We know its a bit late – someone forgot to hit the post button). The iPhone 4 was released in mid 2010 was proper upgrade to the 3GS.
The iPhone 4 looks good and great to hold thus consequently a best sellor. Due to the popularity of the iPhone we really cannot add anything more to the review and comparison world for this phone.
It is a lovely phone that does almost everything you want and very simple to use. The software make network connections quickly and the web browser are state of the art when released in 2010. Apart from construction materials which are beyond anything the competition, apart from Vertu or course there are no innovative features in terms of software. The iPhone 4 is not perfect but its is the best there is for the masses when released.
Since it is such a great phone here’s our opinion and why you should consider another mobile phone:
1 – Micro-SIM makes it incompatible with 99% of other phones for now…
2 – poor voice quality, signal reception and call quality is not good.
3 – its overly expensive despite last generation hardware apart from the screen.
4 – retina display is detailed but has poor color reproduction eg. washed out.
5 – camera still produces fake over saturated pictures.
6 – must look at screen to type.
7 – limited customisation
8 – requires ugly additional case to prevent damage
9 – cannot add more memory
10 – everyone has got one.
If you like apps, videos and music with some web browsing than the iPhone is the best there is. Unfortunately thanks to brewing legal action (2010) the company is attempting to get rid of the opposition. Apple didn’t invent the phone – they made certainly made it so much better but basing legal action on the shape of phone and their improvements like icon designs is essentially a joke only the US legal system can be put through. I wonder whether they paid Nokia and Motorola which they essentially stole the IP from?
Regardless if you can afford the iPhone 4 go for it! However watch out for the Androids…
