Anonymous, 11 Sep 2011No the Apple haters are in the wrong forumPlease note that I am not an Apple hater. I firmly believe that this forum should be available for evaluation of Iphone 4, personal experiences, problems encountered, solutions and expectations that can help current users and future buyers. This forum or other product forum should not be used to defame other phone manufacturers because they provide alternative or choice for a future buyer. If we are not objective with our opinions then this will not help anyone except satisfaction of own ego. One can be critical of phone's or OS performance but it should be defined clearly for a reader to fully understand the point. Like plastic is cheap but stronger than glass (which is more elegant to look at). If android OS is not good then how come it has almost 50% market share. IOS 4 is so simple to use that even a child could understand and use it. Most iphone apps are very good (but expensive) and better than android apps (but cheaper and mostly free). Let us be objective and show maturity on our opinions so we can help other iphone users and future users to fully analyze and maximize the iphone usage. But please DO NOT TOLERATE JAIL BREAK. This practice steal/rob the intellectual right of apps developers. I am a fan of smartphones and have quite a few of them which fully satisfy my specific need. Please note that there is no smartphone that can do everything for everyone of us because of our individual specific need. For simplicity of operation, elegant appearance and medical apps go for Iphone. For telephony and good browsing good for samsung tab. For Camera and 3d go for HTC and LG. For texting and phone go for any ordinary cellphone, for full coverage anywhere but a satellite phone. ETC. We cannot have everything in one phone. Buy a phone that really meet individual needs. ;-)

Thank you for not jailbreaking your iphone and support the legit apps developers. Each individual phone has its own advantages and disadvantages and it all depends on ones need and requirement. The problem with us customer is that we want everything in a phone but uses only 30% of its features. It is ironic that we call them smartphone but we use them mostly for games, videos, mp3, camera, etc. but not use them on computations and office functions. The phone is smart but the users are sometime dumb and immature. Just review the opinions and find out for yourself. ;-)

Apple is suing samsung and htc for patents. Same with Samsung and Htc suing apple. Users are upset with these actions. But what are some users doing? Worse than these 3 companies. They are jailbreaking and rooting their phones in order to avoid paying the apps. They are stealing money from the apps developers who designed and developed these apps. Jailbreakers and rooters and its users, are the robbing little earnings from the apps developers. Be ashamed of what you are doing. Pay and support apps developers. Thanks.

For a start turn off 3G only use it when it's absolutely needed you will find this increases talk time significantly. I almost always use Wi-Fi when at home and at work. Notification badges, alerts and sounds should only be switched on for social networking and nothing else. Location services should only be switched on for the Find Mobile app and nothing else or used when needed. For screen brightness Auto-Brightness should be turned off and brightness reduced to 50% to 40%. All Spotlight Searches should be turned off you can find the settings under the General Settings. With these small modifications heavy usage on the iPhone has been an absolute dream for me and I hope it helps you too.

Adobe yesterday announced the release of Flash Media Server 4.5 and Flash Access 3.0, updated tools to allow publishers to host streaming Flash video content. As noted by Computerworld, the release includes a new solution to allow Flash content to be repackaged and streamed to iOS devices, which famously do not support Flash Player directly.
"With Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5, media publishers now have a single, simple workflow for delivering content using the same stream to Flash-enabled devices or to the Apple iPhone and iPad."
In other words, Adobe's solution repackages content in real-time, changing the protocol to suit the target device, HTTP Dynamic Streaming or HLS, for example. This should mean that iOS devices will get much of the advantages of Flash video support, without the processor degradation and battery life cost of the format in use on other devices.
Good job Apple !!
I got this phone. It works like a dream. Don't even think of jailbreaking it because it may break and need repairs.
- 4 stars for price;
- 5 stars for performance;
- 5 stars for gaming (because of the epic "Infinity Blade" game :O );
- 5 stars for signal (I've never lost signal even if I was on a mountain, I had no bumper and I was in a forest)
- 5 stars for OS. It never got stuck!
I want to congratulate Apple for this device, which works well. First time I saw it I tought it will suck... But I changed my mind!
Iphone 4 has very good and wide selection of apps. If not for this advantage, iphone sales will definitely decline. When someone buys a smartphone they always look at the available selection of apps. Lets wait after apps developers switch their focus on Android OS since half of the market share of smartphones sales is now Android. Android OS is beginning to rock that is why Apple is getting to panic mode and start filing law suits against their competitors. If the Iphone 5 will show a major improvement in design and functionality, then I will buy this. Sony and HTC smartphone design and construction are really classy and expensive looking. Hope apple look at their RND team in order to sustain the Jobs sales momentum and not rely on their legal team. Look what happened to their car industry, Japan and Korean cars had taken over on US car sales. Steve Jobs is proactive, now he had resigned, hoping his successors will continue Apple's technological evolution.
