Its becoming very amuzing now, I just come to visit apple opinions to have a good laugh, and every time is garanteed, look at the rating, its reaching 6 shortly, and look at the interest is down from 92 to 71%, is that not telling you somthing ? yes it tells you this phone is a total failur, if you are apple fan is fine, I have nothing against that go and buy yourself a 3GS the best phone apple ever made, but please don't even waist your breath on this peace of metal / plastic which you can't even make a phone calls from it, your calls drops, and your reception is so poor. beside iphone 4 has not much to offer compare to 3gs SO WHY change to this phone with serious antena issue?
avoid at any cost

You must be Steve Jobs. Only him can be so inventive and put CRT in the same category with Amoled. You say Amoled emits ultraviolet and high energy photons. Any reference to back uo your statement?
BTW CRT(Cathodic Ray Tube) are dangerous becouse they emit electons (X-Ray) inside the tube, and some electrons escape outside. No other screen emits X-Rays.
I wonder whether the exposed antenna causes current drain when the iPhone is held in the hand? Maybe that shorthens the battery charge. I read many user reviews where users were complaining about short battery use.
Ha ha.. free case.. look how high end your iphone is. With all the money they have ammased by stealing/copying/reverse engineering technology and still managing to stay as outdated as ever, they are giving away free cases !! What the **** !! This issue deserved a recall and a hard fix like realigning the antenna but they were dumb enough to make it a single piece body ( again for the 3rd time ). Else they could have managed to just change the back cover with a neat plastic one.
Free Cases my foot

You iphonefanboys need to get a grip, Apple did not invent anything, they just copied and they created a lot of marketing hype,kudos to them on that. The market is flooded with brilliant phones, none greater than the other

Better than 3GS, which was also amazing. The phone is truly beautiful to behold in real life, photos do not do it enough justice. The amount of people who come up to me just to hold it, or ask questions about it is simply phenomenal, and not something that happens with other phones. Truly iconic.
I think the "retina display" is nothing new, the density of the pixels of my iphone4 only comparable to my old sony xperia X1, belive me.. I held this two side by side.
xperia = 800x480 pixels, 3.0" screen
Iphone 4 = 960 x 640, 3.5" screen
my point is.. I think when you make a display at 3.5 inches using the display type of the xperia x1, you will get a 960 x 640 resolution.
A very very cheap phone don't even have reception problem. What a silly way using a 'bumper' just to make a simple call. Apple is not a phone maker, it only have many useless application for DUMMY with a lot of hot air...u still calling this high end.....LOL

Some will probably be fired. But it is also true that other phones have similar issue but are not on watch list as iPhones and it is true that it can be patch with a bumper. iPhone 5 will have other case design.

Everyone may open and replace the original full metal frame, although waiving so the warranty. Anyway even if iPhone did not have an antenna defect, due to its uncomfortable edges owners would use a case or soft rubber bumper so not issue at all in the end.
Everyone who has used a mobile phone even for a few days knows that it areas of not so good coverage, when the phone is held/tilted a certain way, the antenna drops. It happens with every phone. It is the positioning and the layering (of your flesh) on the antenna.
My question is: Is the drop in signal level comparable to that on an iphone where the call is dropped? Does it become zero?
When iphone made the device and tested the first prototype did they TRY to hold it in their hand? Or did they just assume that apple users, foolish though they might be anyways, can be dictated how the phone can be held?
Iphone has chosen a non practical antenna design and iphone gullibles are not ADVISED to use cases. So Stupid. Everyone makes mistakes and Apple made a hardware error that cannot be rectified with a patch job. Their only option is recalling the handsets already sold. The way that Apple shrugged off the responsibility for the issue and tried to drag other manufacturers into their muck is inexcusable. I wonder how long they are gonna stay at the top in the most admired companies in the world with a rating of 80%. I doubted the reason and here it comes. Apple makes gimmiks in the name of technology and gullible susceptible non tech users buy them and become dependant on itunes for the rest of their (mobiles') life.
AMOLED is definitely worse than a good TFT - ISP with LED back lit.
A factor that has to be consider for Super AMOLED, the light directly beams into eyes from its source which is OLEDs. All natural vision of human eyes is when the light comes from reflections of light, generated by sun or lamps, over objects: the photon beams don't directly get from source into eyes; also the beam of phones is not reflected as you may think: you don't get back through reflection the original photons from source; the phones are not as ping-pong balls cast back by objects which they hit; the beam is absorbed by objects, converted in energy and the objects emit other photons back in a sub spectrum of the original beam, lower intensity and broader uniformity over object surface thus giving color to objects and thus protecting the eyes from artificial light that maybe dangerous for human retina when comes from artificial powerful punctiform sources. The LED back lit from TFT is diffused over a white panel then by reflection passes though liquid crystals and get into eye so it is a reflected light, not the original light. OLED like CRT colored phosphors or plasma's pixels directly beam the light into eyes thus you are not protected by ultraviolet emissions and high energy photons which make lesions in organic tissue.
So, TFT displays are healthier than AMOLED and CRT and plasma displays.

iPhonaut, 26 Jul 2010All of these Apple hating ``Dummy`s`` don`t know anything about that. You are exactly right though.thank you dude......
Ofcourse, quite a few people have had alot of problems with the Iphone 4, but it does have its positives. Like said, it has longer battery lif and i also love the design of it. Its resolution astounded me for some reason.
The iPhone 4 tempting features, HD Video Recording and lovely pictures you're surprised:
Anonymous, 25 Jul 201032GB is the largest for iPhone 4. You sure you didn't see the iPad by mistake? iPad goes up to 64GB.my previous post about size and memory was in reply to Anon.
Of course, It's under a quarter of the size and weight, I know 32gb isn't much when we start talking technical, but for a phone having that much memory, it's phenomenal.
Plus, I find with most phones, you start filling them up (That much) they tend to run similar to a 486 (for those that don't know a 486 is one of the first Intel based computers that had the ability to be able to run an O/S)
I know it may be a bad thing, but I own a Nokia N97, and I know if I'm carting around info on it's internal 32gb memory, it tends to lag when I have more than 20gb on it... Since all phones these days are computers, same laws apply, you fill your drive and more you put on your computer - It's going to run slow...
