I have been using iphone 4 since July 13. It's my 15th/16th phone after using innumerable smartphones including Symbian, WM6.5, Android. According to me this is one of the best smartphones still now.
It's almost completing 4 years since launch and still supported by Apple. May be ios 7 is the last upgrade this will get but even then by Google standards Androids in the mid and low range doesn't get more than one or two official updates.
Even with 512 RAM it's enough for doing average multitasking.
The screen legibility is wonderful in bright sun.
The best part is it's single handed usability which is better than iphone 5 and upwards.
The build and get up of the phone is a pleasure .
On jail breaking we can install many tweaks to enhance user experience.
For geeks the ROM flashing and customising (courtesy XDA DEV) of android is taken we'll care of by jailbreaking. Even I feel that tweaking iphone is more convenient as user do not have to flash entire ROM as in Android. Cydia is hosting enough tweaks to satisfy ones thirst.
The app market has many apps but one disadvantage is free apps worth using is lesser than Play store.
It rarely lags even on multitasking whereas lag in android is eminent in mid / some high ends phone also.
Phone models are limited to one or two a year and user does not get allured to buy a new phone at least for two years.
Camera of iphone 4 is also satisfactory. For better pics I use my SLR because no phone can match qualities of SLR till now.
The price to performance ratio is still good when compared to similar priced phones. Even then I feel that price of this phone should get reduced further if continued in the market.
The screen res is fantastic and even though the letters are small they are clearly legible and readable for me at my age of 51. It can be also stated that Apple has not increased resolution in all later models still now merely to allure customers and I feel that I am at par with all latest iPhones in terms of display res. It's praiseworthy that Apple has not resorted to unwanted enhancements for gimmicks.
There are many acceroies available and I have purchased a few like olloclip lens attachments and universal IR remote adapter and have successfully replaced all my domestic remotes with my phone.
I my using my ip4 on ios 7.0.6 although 7.1 has been reviewed to have done much qualitative improvements. That's because I am on jailbroken phone and ios 7.1 does not support untethered jailbreak.
Last but not the least this phone can still stay in the present market if Apple supports it further. In fact my urge to buy new phones every 10 months have vanished as I don't find any new phone which will give my added pleasure than my iphone 4 in the present market. BTW I also have presently a HTC HD2 triple booting in WP7.8 , Andrioid FULL SD and multiple NATIVE SD ROMS. But that's another story. I also have a Galaxy Tab2 7 inch and a Huawei U8800 pro ans a Nokia 5800.
I m using iphone4 for last 6 months and i have good experince. Its a awesome phone. Ios7.1 is faster than older Ios. Multitasking is very good. If we open many apps then there is no trouble on its speed..
Should i buy ip4 or samsung gs3 lte ? I cant afford to buy ip4s :(
when using ios 7.1 also ui interfaces are comparatively slow compared to iphone 5 or 5s
If you were to choose iPhone 4, Lenovo P770, or Sony Xperia L, what would you choose and why? I really need your help guys. Thanks for those who responded to this post! ;)
its best after ios 7.o.6 upgrade........now it has become very fast in opening up apps........
This phone battery sucks.. It cant last even for an single day. This is not even fast. We cant play Temple run 2 without lag... But the interesting thing is we can play high end games like real racing3, GT racing2, ad asphalt8. There is more lag while playing these games, but we can play these if we have patience. Multitasking was somewhat better. Home button is not working properly.Cameras are very much better.. If we open things like phonebook, messages,camera, photos, videos, settings, whatsapp Anything Etc., we have to wait for minimum of 4 seconds... But Calculator Opens up immediately.. The notification bar and control panel sometimes (while playing games) not working properly. ie., if we swipe from top or bottom it wont appears. The main thing is that we cant get signal to use internet. It keeps on disconnecting.. The portrait orientation interace was not working properly when I use whatsapp., ie.,when I tilt the phone whatsapp closes., then I have to reopen it.. Operating this phone needs patience .. we have to recharge this stupid phone atleast twice a day.... CONCLUSION : NOTHING WORKS WELL EXCEPT CALCULATOR, SO DONT BUY THIS PHONE.. WASTE OF MONEY ..ESP.. WASTE OF TIME..
