This phone I dont like to buy due to following points
Hardware design is prone to reception issues
MicroSIM card support only
No Flash support in the web browser
No true multitasking for all applications
FaceTime video calls work only over Wi-Fi
No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode
No hardware shutter key for the camera
No FM radio
No stereo speakers
No microSD card slot
No smart dialing
Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content
Poor loudspeaker performance
better i will go for Samsung galax S, its is cool mobile looks pretty too.
[deleted post]Some shops in the malls selling for AED7000+
You can get it online also for AED3499 instead.
Anonymous, 14 Jul 2010reviews and consumer reports have found the fundamental antena faults with the iphone 4 never ... moreConsumer Reports' report about the iphone4's reception drop is old news. That's already been confirmed in many other articles a few days after the iphone4 was released. Don't act like it just came out and you only heard it first from CR.
It is also a known fact that a case can resolve the issue, which a lot of iphone users buy a case for their iphones anyway.
There won't be a recall. All cell phones have vulnerable spots. That's a fact of life with cell phones. Apple's design mishap was situating the antenna at a spot that's likely to be gripped and not coating the exposed antennas to avoid from shorting. A design mishap is not substantial reason for the court to order Apple for a recall, unless proved hazardous to consumers.
A case easily resolves the issue. Buying a case for a touchscreen phone is common, but it shouldn't be a must. With the iphone4's case, it leaves you little to no choice but to buy a case, which would disappoint some users who want to keep their iphone4 bare.
Since you pretty much HAVE to get a case for your iphone4. One thing that Apple could do to show consideration, is to give a $40 refund to all iphone4 users to compensate for the pretty much required case.

Just receive my iPhone today. No regrets whatsoever! Was worried when reading some comments here, but thankfully unfounded, in my case at least. Phone is a joy to hold, very beautiful and functions perfectly.
Sam, 14 Jul 2010did you know you can potentially sue apple for reception problem, if you don't receive your em... moreyes there are reports of many many people sueing apple over the faults issues and the evidence against the iphone 4s problems is hardly dwindling
reviews and consumer reports have found the fundamental antena faults with the iphone 4 never mind the other suspect items like screen cracking and proximity sensor,a recall is about to happen:
will apple continue to deny its obvious complacency and lack of respect for its drooling drones or continue production knowing fanboys have a fickle grip on their cash no matter what the faults?
either way 1.5 million phones need to be recalled and all those in post production since those were sold and just waiting for selling must be cancelled end result for apple is not good to the value of over a billion dollars:
either way its their own fault,over complacency,overly controlling,using cheaper internal materials and charging extraordinary prices form fanboys,its bites you in the ass some times
[deleted post]I prefer not only Oranges but also WAVE to apple, at least I can surf on the Wave and most importantly make phone call while holding it with your left hand or any hands. What a joke ! I have seen myself the reception drops to zero bar as soon as hold with left hand!!
did you know you can potentially sue apple for reception problem, if you don't receive your emergency calls due to lack of antena?apple tells you this is a software issue and it has now proven its not the case, if you experience any problem regarding not receving calls while you hold your handset with your left hand you should ask for compnsation and your full money back, please read:

Anonymous, 14 Jul 2010dont spend all your cash its about to get an entire recall
http://www.cultofmac.com/pr-expe... moreLol no need to get excited, that is just an opinion by outsiders. Everyone is jumping on the issue as it is easy to get a lot of publicity with this topic.
i hope apple already fixed the signal issue on this phone! tsk tsk
Great design yeah but again apple brainwashing shit for Apple goat fags . They didnt get Oleds from Samsung so the must use that LCD shit again LMAO ! Priceless ...

I think iphone 4 is no revoloution in terms of technology at all, it was far ahead of game 3 years ago, 3gs was a big success, I loved it myself, but now I am aksing what more I am getting by tie myself to 2 years contract from iphone 4 , is anything hugly different? NO , its not. only few things being added which in most smart phone out there is quite an standard, why apple couldn't wait and not be gredy and release something far better than anything in the market, may be in 2011-or 2012. Why they didn't even bother to check this problem with reception which is with every single handset you buy anywhere, why should I hold the phone in specific way to be able to use and make and recieve a call? this is a big embaressment, and step back, don't you think so?
Lets be impartial I am just puzzle what this phone can offer me which is vastly different to 3gs (I am not comparing to any other brend just apple itself).
so the conclusion for me is, they have faild and failed badly, I was a iphone fan but not anymore, i stick with my 3gs and upgrade to something else than iphone 4, many many heavy wieght out there by far over perform over apple!!
again I just shared my opinioun with all, and I wish all the user most enjoyable experience of using the iphone 4, of course good luck if you are left handed!!.

shaju, 14 Jul 2010this thing is damn expensive in u a eYup AED7900 at Tarsam!
You can order it for AED3499 on Emirates Avenue though. Not exactly cheap, but best price for now, until Etisalat or du bring it in officially.
its funny really,if any other product,electronic,vehicle, mechanical or other wise and as many faults there would be outrage and massive recalls ala toyota style but apple does certainly have its fanboy base down under its tight control and knows it,they'd never have got away with this otherwise,especially knowing the reception fault prior to release and putting a big push on its 'bumper' cases in the iphone 4 unveiling,very coincidently the very device need to rectify its design faults.
