There are very few phones capable of 720p video, even less are capable of 30fps.

Something you just made up?
Something either does more than one thing at once or it doesn't, multitasking is doing more than one thing at once.
iPhones do more than one thing at once therefore they multitask.
I upgraded (forced to due to apple updates killing it) from a 3G to the 4 thinking it would be miles ahead but alas no. "Wow, it can take video" so can my 8 year old sony erricson that's still working.
I love some of the apps, but what's the point if you still have to charge the phone every second day, even with light usage. It's the whole idea that if you don't have a computer your stuffed. My company doesn't allow iTunes on it's computers so have to email everything to myself just to get the information.
I believed the hype and still can't shrug of the feeling that Apple are rubbing their hands thinking, thank goodness our marketing is fantastic because our phone is flawed.
So i phoned the store today to tell them i was returning the phone and the guy said "your not the first"
Thanks for the good times apple but your arrogance has stuck in my throat so i'm leaving. I finally get to delete iTunes from my computer.
its true apple are very technologically advanced, but they have not incorporated that into the iphone. Apple products are very much unique. Yes its only a 5mp camera but compare that to an 8mp on a sony erricson and you will see that the iphone has better quality. Apple hold back on certain products and features, simply for business purposes. They give there customers wanting the next update = more sales. Yes there are phones that do more, i have used and own many phones, i 100% apple phones are the easyist to use. However if you want a phones that is more technologically advanced then go for the HTC but only get the evo if you are going to make use of the customisable firmware. if you want a phones, simple to use, easy to access apps, decent visdeo and pic quality then go for iphone. If you are actually going to use video calling, use microsoft products etc and going to connect your phone to the tv then go for HTC evo. fuck all the apple fanboys and apple haters, everyone has their specific need, go in store get a demo, get a feel for the phone and see which 1 better suits you otherwise you will keep getting HTC fanboys, Apple Fanboys, Nokia Fanboys etc posting shit. A phone can easily have better specs, it does not mean it works better e.g go and buy a 32" sony HD TV, then go and buy a 32" Hitachi HD TV. Sony 1 will look a lot better. its not the spec, its how the company uses the hardware and programmes the software that matters. so what im saying, FUCK specs, because thats all bullshit, you will have to use the phone to know the difference.
Beacuse Apple wantes to control everything throw online. so hackers not get easy play

telling all their sheep how they're the first by adding a buzz word , lets say "MultiApp"
Hear Steve now... "We bring you the ability to run the phone how you choice, we call it MultiApp, another
piece of brilliant engineering here at Apple"
Fans will just lap it up
Iphone is a good phone but Apple are really taking us for a ride. Some features like multitasking, 5mp camera, video calls are not new since Nokia, Sony Ericsson.....had this in their phones from long time ago. What apple is doing is coming up with two or three exciting features to the customers and then they deny us some basic features that we have already enjoyed. It is very hard to dump a cellphone that can multitask and choose one that doesn't or one with radio and equally good enough for one that doesn't.
Apple is making profits in an unfair manner. They have an Ipod nano with radio, so they have the technology of intergrating radio into iphone. What they do is that, they force us as customers to dump our old iphones to buy the new ones that has very few additional features.
If apple wants to be a real giant in technology, they should incorporate all features that have ever existed in ordinary cellphones and then they come up with their additional exceptional features. They first did Edge technology, then 3g, then 3gs, then multitasking. Of course if you had an iphone with edge, you'll be forced to dump it coz you bought it because of the touch thing.
I hate being denied basic features and forced to upgrade every year. Same with the Ipad, doesn't have multitasking, so next year, they will come up with one that has it. You will dump it and go back to your pocket again to buy a multitasking feature while this multitasking has existed since 1965* computers.
Projections of apple iphone5
Will have a radio
12 MP CAMERA
Much lighter than 137g
Little improvement in mapping
Improvement in design......
then one exciting feature.
you'll have to give them money again. What a waste of money!!
Apple, give us everything that has ever existed in cellphones then add sth that will make your products exceptional over others. Piece meal introdution of basic features already existing is unfair. Android will soon match up and later give Apple a run for their money.
Did iOS causes any resource / memory issue that happen to other brand of mobile ??
How's about the stability of the iOS ?? Can it hang ??

Apple justifies the micro SIM because it would free up more space in the iPhone 4. But if you open a iPhone4 like any other phone you will find some empty space in side. the 0.004mm squared of free space that it has now free'd up does not justify having to switch to a micro SIM. Just more Apple "the world must fit in with us" type of cr@p

You can hold it normally with a pink rubber bummer case.
But without it's a Bruno fag boy grip to keep the signal. Even Jobs recommend to hold it that way.
The same guys that thinks we don't want miniUSB, microSD, or a radio and have the ability to change a battery.

Had this for about a month. All of its features are just average for my demands. I sold it a week ago and bought another much better and cheaper phone. For anyone who demands quality or is a power user stay away from this!
Hi, i wonder if anyone can advice me about the SIM slot. I have plans to buy this but i made to understand that, it has only a micro SIM slot. What does that suppose to mean? So does it accept regular SIM cards? I mean if i use a regular SIM card in 3GS phone, can it be used in this iPhone 4?
Bit confused though. Hope soemone who already have an iPhone 4 can enlighten me about this.
apple rocks! iphone 4 is the real phone. ya as said in earlier comments that no phone is perfect. only thing i wonder is why iphone need a helicopter shield like glass. the glass of iphone 3gs is also the best one. unnecessary increasing the cost. Basic video calling is limited again. if these are ignored then iphone 4 is the best i ever saw . will buy one in next month.
why can't we upgrade the iphone software by directly downloading from the iphone it will save alot of time.
