Well even supposes experts get it wrong sometimes. Just because he's got a PHD & works for a Vision technology company, doesn't mean he's the engineer. Display tech is a very wide area. All I say is. Nope The people who held the device aswell as Jobs MWC videos only noticed a slight sharpness, brightness increase. The extra PPi is not worth it, you'll hardly see a difference - Since you need better than average eye site from a normal viewing distance which is what the experts fail to mention, the average person won't see much of an amazing difference.
I rest my case. TFT IPS which is what is in this device doesn't have a completely free angle of viewing the pixels which only light up a limited area. Again the screen is lit up using artificial LED backlight. These are not as bright as Organic Light Emitting Diodes which with a small electrical stimulus provide a much brighter white, they have the ability to completeley switch switch of with negative charge to produce blacks depending on which Organic materials, gasses are used.
The OLED still wins. Producing blacker blacks, wider colour palette since OLEDS can access a wider dynamic brighter natural light from the materials used which are natural. Greater whites, greater viewing angle because the reflected blocking light behind other layers etc...
My final comments are "We'll see how long the battery life is in this device" Since IPS use quite a bit more power consumption than standard TFT. So go & read the real scinetific establishments research on OLED FACTS over any TFT In Plane switching technology. Because that expert won't convince me based on what I know, have seen, heard, read from multiple sources. One thing don't comment back Iphone arguers. never take a 1st opinion from some smart suited PHD guy for apple. Bet they are paying him to say that, either that or he just loves to many apples.
i was just wondering... what exactly do they mean by video call over wifi only? that sounds pretty interesting
Sayem, 14 Jun 2010SuperAmoled display is far far better than Apple's so called Retina Display.
First, of all... moreThere is no technical review that states that super amoled is actually better than the iphone's retina display. But resolution numbers prove that the iphone's retina display is higher than any super amoled phone out there, and that already gives the iphone the advantage.
Apple's claim about the iphone's retina display has been validated. Read this link.
The iphone promises an improved battery despite the display improvement, so it does not matter if ever the iphone's retina display does prove to consume more battery power. So your point is pointless.
The iphone offers excellent legibility under direct sunlight, and it offers the same with the iphone4. I haven't read any review of a super amoled phone where the reviewer stated that it has better outdoor legibility than the iphone.
There's also no review that states the the iphone's retina display is more prone to damage. Nor was there any review that states that amoled displays have better responsiveness than the iphone or better contrast or deeper blacks. So I do not know where you are getting your ideas from.
Unlike you, I will not make any claims as to which is better between the retina display and super amoled until there are official reviews comparing the two. I am smarter than you are because I do not post around speculations as if they are facts :) You're the one who needs a better brain :)
Based on the specification, I'd say it has met all my minimum requirement of having an iPhone:
1. 3.5" capacitive touchscreen with better pixel
2. Huge memory storage 16/32 GB
3. WLAN now upgraded from 802.11b/g to 802.11b/g/n
4. Camera has improved to 5MP with LED flash
The above are all improvements made by Apple Inc. to this new iPhone 4. This surely is on my list but since I'm just a teenager and still studying, I may have to wait for another two years to get a new mobile phone, otherwise, damage my current mobile phone - Nokia N70

Retina is not a big deal? It is four times better than the 3gs' resolution and it is not a big deal? For Pete's sake, this is not for Samsung Wave users but for iphone users so stop promoting your samsung device already. If we're interested w/ samsung wave's specs, we can go check it out ourselves thank you.
Stick with your e90. Go video call with it every day. I am sure everyone who likes video calling would buy your e90 if it does offer smooth video calling. No need to promote in here. Some people are just so insecure and jealous :)

I don't think Apple intended the iphone to be used as your movie library. Plan ahead. Save all your movies into a hard drive. When you have an upcoming long trip, move a couple of movies to your iphone. Better yet, watch that movie on your laptop, believe me, it's more enjoyable watching a movie on a bigger screen when you're in a long trip :) Unless of course you do not have a laptop :)
Does not have a radio and FM transmitter I hope to be in the next release so that we buy

"FTC Preps Investigation Against Apple's Ad Tactics"
http://www.pcmag.com/arti... moreWe don't need these links mate, lol and some won't work but I already know this just go to
www.google.com > search "Apple's false claims"
And ull find everything, I'm with u Apple are total cheaters, they r cheating the world.
All the Android fanboys looking for excuses for their LOW RESOLUTION screens.
Hey you can keep your AdMob advertising too, Google has no respect for people's privacy.
Their streetview vans were caught snooping on peoples wifi by the German government.
They shared everyone's contacts when they launched Buzz.
Sorry but the cost of Google's "free" stuff is too high.
You keep your Android and I'll keep my privacy.
"FTC Preps Investigation Against Apple's Ad Tactics"
Someone was right about it and ur all under Apple's influence.
Steve Jobs False claims about Iphone 4 glass covers, 3.5 foot drop broke it, Apple is cheating their faithful customers :s ????!
Here is the link guys:
Guys Apple's FALSE claims keep piling up !!!
"Apple's iPhone 4 "Retina" Display Claims Are False Marketing"
Earlier i saw someone talking about Apple's False Marketing but never believed him because i was gonna get the Iphone 4 and he also didn't provide a link, so i researched for a while and he is saying the TRUTH !!! and this is one example about it have fun.
"Apple: Our Ads Don’t Lie, But You’re a Fool if You Believe Them"
Lol check this out too, its funny .. Poor people getting played with by marketing.
"Apple's iPad marketing sparks complaint to FTC"
Im not buying from Apple again they are cheaters, i don't believe i got manipulated by their marketing strategy !
People think again before you buy ! Over priced and not worth it !
nmg, 14 Jun 2010as near to perfect as makes no difference.
Flash has had its day its time to move on you No... moreSuperAmoled display is far far better than Apple's so called Retina Display.
First, of all Apple lied about Retina Display, because this display doesn't exceed the resolution of human retina at all. So actually it is NOT Retina Display at all.
Secondly, so called Retina Display is just 3% sharper than SuperAmoled and this difference is impossible to visualise even with a perfect eyesight. So does it have any benefit at all?
Thirdly, so called Retina Display consumes 30% more energy than SuperAmoled. It drains battery so fast with web browsing and movie watching, so web browsing, watching movie and texting isn't appreciated at all in Retina Display. Another associated adventage it that iPhone 4 has a fixed battery and dont permit you to change it or carry extra battery. So you have begger chance to be out of battery and out of network too.
Fourth, SuperAmoled has the BEST sunlight visibility. Even under direct sunlight it doesn't loose it's charm even a bit. With so called Retina Display, in a sunny day, you have to look for a shade to see who's calling.
Fifth, Retina Display is a TFT display, which is more prone to be broken, even if you accidentaly put a bit extra amount of pressure it might break. SuperAmoled is flexible, even you can warp your finger with it. So SuperAmoled is much resistive to accident and damage.
Sixth, SuperAmoled is 3 times longer lasting than Retina Display.
Seventh, SuperAmoled has a faster response time than Retina Display.
Eight, SuperAmoled has a better contrast ratio than retina display.
Ninth, SuperAmoled can produce much deep black that retina display can never think of.
So, tell me which one is better? Use your brain, if you have any. Dont argu being blind.
SuperAmoled, it is the best available display is the market, and a revolution in the display of mobile industray by Samsung. And the first phone to have SuperAmoled display is Wave, that released ages before iPhone 4 and outperform iPhone 4 in features and performance.
SuperAmoled is the FUTURE of the industry.
iPhone 5 might have SuperAmoled display and steve will say,'isnt it cool?'

Retina display makes things clearer true but its not a big deal, apple just made it into a big deal.. Forgods sake go watch Samsung wave and Super Amoled screen and ull know the difference, even in in UI smoothness it compares with the iphone and even better some might say.
And I did use 3G video calling on my old E90 and it was working just fine and smooth, even smoother than facetime on Apple's keynote. Watch where other's have reached mate.
My concerns with the new iPhone is simply the lack of memory. My 3GS is nearly filled. It turns out the new iPhone will install the HD versions of content in default. What does this mean? Well when you buy for example an HD episode of a show on iTunes, you are given two downloads, one in HD and one in MPEG that is much smaller in file size. The new iPhone will chose to download the HD version which is three times the size. Apps created for ios4 will be much larger in file size, as old apps get updated to maximize the new resolution they will also grow in size. Shooting HD video on the iPhone 4 will occupy nearly 80mb of storage space PER MINUTE.... A 64gb iPhone would have been really appreciated. I would have paid the premium for it.

So I don't need to rephrase what I said. I don't care what they use in Japan because it does not concern me. The iphone does not concern you either, so I don't know why you're here :)

At least it works smoothly, unlike other devices out there that claims they have video calling yet never seems to work on either wifi or 3g, but of course yours probably works all the time :)
The iphone's retina display simply means better clarity, especially when zooming in on texts or images. It does not mean that we will be counting pixels, lol.
That iphone glass breaking is questionable. There's no video footage of it, just a photo of an iphone with a shattered display.
Yes, we will be having fun with our iphones, and you really shouldn't be affected :)
