But there are more and more cases for it coming out. There is no such census to show that the 3gs has the most cracked displays. As for the iphone4's display. How many phone's you see on the internet subjected to the same stress test as the iphone4? Truth is, a lot of haters want to see the iphone4 crack and break but don't bother doing the same with other phones. Again, under normal use, the iphone4's casing can withstand drops and can resist scratches much better than other phones. It's either you can afford to take the risk to get an elegant phone, or you can stick with plastic displays that may not shatter, but would scratch easily and looks cheap. Your choice.

Some of the current problems with fring at the moment is the removal of skype in it due to internal conflicts between fring and skype.iphone 4 users using fring aswell for calling surely makes apples terrible emotion filled wifi facetime ads even the more awful.
As for amoleds bleeding colours....you've obviously never used one. having had two amoled phones and friends with super amoled seeing them on hand over periods shows the vast improvements,depth,shadaows ,contrasts. Colours are more saturated and vibratant due to superior contrast,regular amoleds hitting the 100,000:1 marks like most high end hd screens,super amoled hitting better heights.most people coming form a 3gs will notice a huge contrast differnece and colour vibrance due to the low ratio on lcd technologies.
ips lcd uses far more battery,one reason perhaps for apple not using a bigger screen. iphone battery does indeed last longer than the 3gs but this is something which was badly needed to be improved,reviews show apples so called 50 extra battery life is like alot of current claims form apples as being not quite true

Professional reviews have consistently stated that the iphone4's display is the best. Better than any devices with amoled display. So who cares if amoled is newer technology if it's inferior in quality.
The iphone4's battery life has improved almost 50%, so there is no reason for anyone to complain about its decision to keep an lcd display. You're being unreasonable.
a high end selling phone apple sell 50 million phones over 3 years Samsung sell 200 million a year .

Anonymous, 12 Jul 2010Your not a very polite guy are you! The screen on the iphone 4 is ok...Apps are second to none... moreTo say that the iphone4's screen is just ok is an understatement. It's awesome, and I don't care which device you're a fan of. Yes, there is a flaw with its antenna placement, but it's not like it can't be easily resolved with a case. The iphone4's reception is actually better than prior iphones. As for its 5mp camera, it's been CONSISTENTLY proven over and over again on professional reviews that it ourperforms other devices with 8mp cameras. The iphone4 is simply one, if not the best, smartphone out there.

It's a free world.
Regarding reception, iPhone 4's had no problems bringing down the Fring network due to the high amounts of data being pumped through the antenna.

The reds seem to bleed into the colours next to them.
The Amoled production process isn't ready for the big time, LG and Samsung (the ONLY companies that make them) can't keep up with demand, HTC has been forced to use LCD's in some of their models.
A high selling phone like the iPhone, forget it.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2010The iphone4's glass display is better than the 3gs'. Under normal use, it shouldn't scratch. ... morethe bumper case isn't a normal case like that for the iphone 3gs which protects the back & screen etc,its simply wraps around the sides of the iphone 4. It suspiciously covers the exact area that needs to be covered to get proper reception on the iphone 4 and so being announced at the same time as the iphone 4 pretty much means apple knew the reception issues and that punters had to cash out even more money on the iphone to get reception. as for the screen cracking,the iphone 3gs cracked more than any other phone by far. my local networks charge twice the rate on insurance for a iphone than any other top phone as there are so many incidences. It seems the iphone 4 screen from tests and reviews is easier to scratch or break despite apple milking the crowd with its advertising of it being otherwise,charging for this 'better' strength screen in the process. Iphone screens will crack,will cost to replace and insurance will cost more. thats all on top of the huge intial purchase layout.
Mark, 12 Jul 2010Did you ever hold an Iphone 4? Have you seen the LCD resolution?? there is no better and clean... moreDid you notice how grey and dark the display is for the iPhone 4. My old one is brighter! Actually looks better than the new one!
Mark, 12 Jul 2010Did you ever hold an Iphone 4? Have you seen the LCD resolution?? there is no better and clean... morei notice you said lcd,a technology on the way out even last year but stilled used by apple again the fourth incarnation of iphone. Yes the slight extra resolution gives you the tiny bit extra sharperness but has far slower response rates and far less contrasts. Super Amoleds are always going to be better,a this moment maybe that 3 - 4 % less sharpness when zommed in at a ridiculous level that nobody views texts at but comsumes far less battery power with way better contrasts,slimmer in depth and 1ms response rates.
No doubt over the coming mnonths a super amoled screen with a resolution of greater than 800x480 will appear (more than likely 1280x 720 ish) and the iphones slight sharpness adavance will be gone and battery consumption in comparison will look stupid to even fanboys.
Who knows apples mat perhaps adopt super amoled next year,claim theyre changing the phone world completely by inventing it and charging fanboys a further obscene price for it

"Consumer Reports has confirmed that the iPhone 4 has an antenna problem," says spokesman Mike Gikas. "We tested multiple iPhones as well as other phones from AT&T, and found that the problem is really only with the iPhone 4. Bottom line, we can't recommend the iPhone 4 until Apple fixes this design flaw."
