at least 60% increase in processing power
Apple A4 is based on the ARM processor architecture. The first version released runs at 1 GHz and contains a Cortex-A8 CPU core paired with a PowerVR SGX 535 graphics processor (GPU) built on Samsung's 45 nm process
It is what it is. An Iphone, spec wise it got trashed by the N8 though according to Engadget.
Hey all, after we've seen the new iphone 4 and the samsung s8500 wave.... can anybody tell me which is better??
i'm buying a new phone soon but i'm confused between both so if anyone can help i would really appreciate it
thank you all :)
i think multitasking are one of the best new feat. of iphone4..specialy if youre playing apps then suddenly someones calling or new ym message you have to close the apps for a reply..and also the battery ;)
apple rip off of customers, the needed 4 phone and multi billions customers money to only reach 5m om camera and then what else
go for the HTC or Nexus One
I've been using iphone since 2g, then 3g, then the current 3gs.
I change sim card quit often with different phones use. And how the heck can i use my sim on it? And if i cut my sim to small size to use on it, how the heck can i use on other phones which support normal size?
And how much does the different between this stupid micro sim card and normal sim card save space? Not so different, and what the heck are they thinking?
Maybe they stick to their moral: Apple, "think different"
But hey Steve, why not live like other human and breath like other human? So please use normal sim for human. Bugger
""""Its micro sim too"""" so you just can put your existing sim into is youve got to get a new one from your provider
there is no wow factor on the new phone. its just another iphone and has slightly more improved features. but nothing amazing. i am a design analyst for mobile phones. Apple are capable of designing something a lot better than this. Video calls on iphone will only be iphone to ophone. this is just an example of how silly apple phones really are..
Same old iPhone, I mean in a positive way. The thing is, iPhone is a specific phone in many ways and it shouldn't be neither pushed nor defended by consumers. It is matter of taste. To me for example, in spite of a real nice UI, the iPhone looks like a brick. What is the hype about square box with round corners and plain surfaces. There is nothing wrong about it, but there is nothing to love about it either.
I have been using Nokias for years and I am finally breaking with them. They are nice, good enough, but "good enough" is not the standard any more. My feeling is that Nokia just stubbornly keeps using a year old hardware in their newest phones and more than any other brand, keeps repacking the same phones over and over.
While I do not have any desire for the iPhone because of their pretty restricting policy in terms of software and applications and particularly because of using exclusive service providers, I decided to go with Samsung S8500 WAVE. It matches and even exceeds all the newest phones in many ways, particularly the screen, looks elegant not too bulky like iPHONE, Nexus, HTC...I am aware it will take some time to develop some more BADA compatible applications, but all standard functions that the newest touch phones are supposed to do, are already there and are very decent. Besides, you can buy it SIM free for a half price of the iPhone that cannot be even jail-braked any more because of micro SIM. Do not forget: wireless means being free not tied like we used to be with the land line phones, and Apple's policy of exlusivity is breaking the rules of freedom.
While Nokia is behind in technology, iPhone keeps the price up just by being exclusive, not better than HTC/Nexus...
Overall, Samsung Wave seems to be a bit ahead of the competition at the moment and more affordable.
Well the Iphone is nice, lots of specs and whatever, but seriously what can you do with an Iphone, that you can't with another phone? nothing!! actually there is more you can do with other phones then with Iphone, starting with the bluetooth and moving on!!! i can see my self holding an Iphone only if i like to use it as a gadget, games graphcs etc.. but when it comes to business well Iphone can't give me any additional value compared to it's price, i'd rather go for the google phone or even stay with my lovely nokia e71!!
In Portugal we still have the Iphone 3g at 500Euros which is 597 Dollars...Can you believe the nerves to put the same price and its already passed 2 years???
And the IP4 is coming at 600 euros for sure, and 3g stills on 500???....shame on them!
Try again Steve!
Only higher screen resolution, only videocall over WI-FI? The rest is the same as iPhone 3GS (AT&T connection, no web-flash support, etc).
That's all folks?
Alex, 08 Jun 2010I think that Apple is just playing us. All Iphones are similar, it's 1cm deep. it's bigger tha... moreTotally agree iphone are unbelievably behind the times you can t even get delivery reports...HTC all the way Andriod is a far better platform
guy, im gonna have to agree with Alp Boy, at the end of the day its just a phone, people spend far too much money on something they only use an hour per day.
Get a £10 a month contract and send the extra £35 to the chinese boy who manufactured it fo 30p a day.
3g video calls only between Iphone 4????what pre-historic!What about the price in europe 600 euros for sure, i bet!! But amazing amazing is that the price its not a barrier to buy, i think its a scandal, after 3 years, the prices being so high...
It lacks too a 4 inch screen, and i dont know if this Retina display is better than super Amoled...
One thing: Ipod Touch = same without call/text function, videocall and Internet. Though it has WIFI. It also costs you €500,- more only to get those functions...
Does anyone know if the Apple iPhone 4 is compatible with the 3G networks in Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, and Latin America?
