We have all seen how the iPhone 4 has stormed the world right? But the release was not without its problems! Let’s run through what happened and how Apple dodged a potentially troublesome bullet!
You’d have to have been living under a rock lately to be ignorant to the way the iPhone 4 is taking over the world of mobile phones. The mobile world has been all about the iPhone for a while now, but this particular version sees this modern classic taking it all to the next level with a bevy of improved features, beautifully enhanced elements, and handy extras. However, like a lot of people you may be wondering if the Apple iPhone 4 is the right choice for you in particular. Well, let’s take a closer look at this hot new addition to the Apple collection and see if we can’t help you figure it out.
Notes On the iPhone 4 Design
The iPhone has always been incredibly sleek and streamlined, but iPhone 4 takes even that to the next level. To begin with, it’s ultra-thin – much thinner than previous incarnations of the same phone. Compact phones that don’t take up a ton of room in your handbag or pocket are all the rage right now and this phone definitely delivers in that arena.
This version of the Apple iPhone is designed to be more resistant to damage than ever as well. To begin with, it features a built-in plastic bumper that goes all the way around the phone and gives it an added edge against damage resulting from everyday life or even the occasional accident. The glass is built ultra-tough as well, making it practically impossible to scratch. However, some users have reported that this particular version of the glass is a bit more brittle and susceptible to cracking if dropped. However, this is typically the case no matter what type of phone you choose.
Notes On the iPhone 4 Performance
The new iPhone 4 comes with Apple’s highly efficient A4 processor. This is the same processor that can be found on the very popular and critically acclaimed iPad. It also comes with a generous amount of memory space for a phone – a whopping 512MB. That’s twice as much memory as the iPhone 3GS had. This means an improved capacity when it comes to multi-tasking, as well as a higher overall performance level. The iPhone 4 is also incredibly fast compared to a lot of other phones on the market. It’s even faster than previous incarnations of the iPhone, although speed was never really a major issue thanks to the high standards Apple holds its phones to.
The iPhone 4 also features a brand new Retina display, which is considered to be one of the major highlights attached to this particular version of the iPhone. With its impressive 960×640 pixel resolution, it blows the competition and their 800×480 resolutions completely out of the water. Users have reported that small text is infinitely easier to read. They have also noted that it’s much easier to view your phone in direct sunlight than it was with previous iPhone models.
Overall, iPhone 4 reviews have almost unanimously hailed this new addition to Apple’s catalog as a major improvement on almost all counts, helping iPhone hold onto its position as the most popular choice in SmartPhones today… but don’t take our word for it. Try it for yourself and see how it compares to the competition.
