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... 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."

The screen on the iphone 4 is ok...Apps are second to none, HOWEVER....it's a phone....a phone that is $HIT on reception!!! Camera...what 5mp...what day and age are you in? 2004??? I had a 4mp camera back in those days! We in 2010 now...where phones have 12mp camera! Wake up pal! Holding a phone that looks good and having $hit performance is not my idea of having a phone! Oh and er, I don't own a Samsung either!

wX, 12 Jul 2010The Apple iPhone will ALWAYS be one step ahead all others :-)apple is behind in tech some of the features on the iphone 4 ,where in phones years ago...facetime video calls . i had a 3g phone in 2002 could do video calls..
wX, 12 Jul 2010The Apple iPhone will ALWAYS be one step ahead all others :-)Honestly, in what way is it really ahead? Best display currently. That is all. So don't get ahead of yourself.
It has just managed to get ahead by a mall margin, something will surpass it shortly. That's technology and that is the nature of the beast so to speak

I do not get what you are trying to say about extra expenses for the iphone4. The iphone4's display will not get smashed by simply using it. You have to drop it hard on concrete to smash it, and I think any phone will incur damage in doing so, and in turn you may need to spend money if the hardware damage bothers you. And that is on ANY phone. As for the having to buy a bumper case. I will agree with you that it is an unnecessary extra expense if you can prove to me that a case never existed for any phone before the iphone4. People have been buying cases for their 3gs and other touhscreen phones and it's not a big deal. Why would it be a bug deal for the iphone4 to get a case for it?
Is the htc desire scratchproof and breakproof? Is there available cases for htc desire? If there is, why?

alot of money paid for the iphone 4s supposed superior 'design',alot of money will be repaid when the screen smashes,alot of money to be paid to get a bumper case to finally get reception,alot of money to be get insurance cover (some networks charge double the price per month to insure the 3gs alone next to competing phone...possible knowledge they definietly will have lots of claims over easily damaged screens?!)
Fun thing is the htc desire is a couple of hundred cheaper first day and isn't plagued like with extra hidden costs,providing you can get one...sold out everywhere!
wX, 12 Jul 2010The Apple iPhone will ALWAYS be one step ahead all others :-)I agree with you. No matter how hard they try to pull it down, people who go to the Apple Store are just mesmerized by the iphone4 and wants one. It is still sold out, and the only way really to get one right now is through preorder and reservation. Even with the media's aggressive negative paid publicity (exaggerated & isolated), the iphone is still a bestseller. It's because users realize, when they actually use the device, that it's an awesome device. After over two weeks of using an iphone4, I'm still impressed by its display and design. Haters should just give it up. Iphone4 rules.
