I mentioned the issue with the proximity sensor on the 23rd. How about that it turns out it is a universal issue. Apple needs to fix this right now because the iPhone 4 does not feel as natural to use as all the other incarnations of the iPhone. I have now made numerous input errors while on the phone simply because there is a lag in the sensor in both actuating and shutting off. I have also compared the time it takes to dial vs the 3gs and this will prove to be another issue Apple must address: it takes 25% longer for the iPhone $ to dial then the 3gs. Hopefully these issues can be addressed in a software update. I can live with the decreasing bars, but I hate the feeling that my 3gs is easier and more comfortable to use than my 4th generation iphone. I am hoping this changes shortly.
[deleted post]dude you're way too pressed.
we get it you hate apple!
tired of seeing your name all over the place
now stfu 50 million plus iphone users think different to you
GET OVER IT
and stop riding apple d*ck
I think most, if not all, iphone buyers buy it because it's apple. Apple is more like a style than a device! I mean seriously, video calling has been around for YEARS! whats so great about it? I gotta admit, overall the iPhone is very impressive. But it's not the first to pack such features..
It is quite possible that iphone4 may have sold 1.7 million units in 3 days but close to 1.6 million units have been bought alone by Steve Jobs himself.......secretly........to inflate sales figures....lolz.........
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2010Smart? Hardly. Other countries have had tiered data pricing for years starting at $5. And bett... moreThat is quite funny, we in Australia has had tiered pricing for years and are about to embrace the 'unlimited' dogma as more Telcos are offering unlimited plans. You guys (USA) on the other hand are going the other way...?
Aren't suppose to lead the world in that...?
Table has turned I guess. U.S is not the U.S it once was.

John, 29 Jun 2010Just to highlight the IFans cheap/ low way of thinking, here is a comment to justify the IFan ... moreThe N8 has a slow old processor, not much RAM and a low resolution screen.
You can get much better phones than that junk.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2010You just can't get jealous at Apple's success. Who told these other phone makers to make doze... moreThe reason why all these phones look the same is because there isn't much room for design. How much different can a black touchscreen phone look. Take off the brand name from a widescreen tv and you won't be able to tell who made it. As for your grandmother recognizing the iphone doesnt really translate too much. The best reason for that would be marketing and media coverage. The iphone is a good phone but not the greatest. When the first generation came out the made everyone else step up but not I believe everyone else is making apple step up. If it werent for the competition the iphone 4 would have been at least the the iphone 5 or maybe even a further model
Do your research, it costs way to much. The price is rediculous, many other phones meet and surpass the Iphone 4 which still cannot do TRUE multitasking as stated in Macworld. Anyhow, enjoy your Iphones :-)
Just to highlight the IFans cheap/ low way of thinking, here is a comment to justify the IFan way of thinking..
'Those Ifans saying that the N8 should sell more than 1.7 million in 3 days are not getting the full picture...
You see, Apple only has one device, thats ONE phone!!. Obviously, anyone wanting an apple or iOS are force to buy the Iphone.
The N8 on the other hand is just one device out of hundreds that Nokia offer so that buyers can buy the best one that suits their needs and their budget.
Therefore it is not a good idea to compare the phone from a company making only one modal to one phone from a company that offer many many choices.
Sad that many Ifans don't get this..'
Now I would tell you the fact why Ifans think this way, itz because this is the way Steve Jobs wants them to think. steve jobs is like their God Father. Remember 'Your holding the phone in the wrong way'.
Lol, that was funny..
'Just dont hold the phone that way'
Lol!1 what a joke.
1.7 million people, you have been fooled.
If Mr Jobs crap is labeled with Apple logo, these 1.7 million people would go up to get it for any amount that Mr Jobs asks for.
Lol!! IPeople are so horrible.
Then they expect Nokia to sell 1.7 million N8 phones.
Yess if Nokia manufactured just 1 phone a year, just like how Apple does, then I can assure, Nokia would not only sell more than 1.7 million phones of N8 in 3 days, infact it would sell more than 3.4 million N8 in 1.5 days.
By the way, now I realize after reading various comments, it seems now IFans probably realize how crap their IPhone4 are with regards to reception, so now they are comparing cameras with other low end phones.
Itz not the fault of IFans, b'coz IFans will always remain ISupporters no matter even if Mr Jobs load of crap is thrown on their face, they would still happily digest that and support Apple.
'Your holding your phone the wrong way' lol!! the joke of the century. How while taking photos with IPhone 4 cam, is there a sppecial way to hold it, you never knw, one fine day the flash might not turn on, as people would be holding their IPhone 4 the wrong way. Lol..
get yourself the Nokia N 8, it has the 12 MP cam. Yes itz 12MP not 5 MP.
John, 29 Jun 2010If Nokia has ever had to mention on how to hold the phone in the right way, it's probably beca... moreUs? Iphone users jealous of your n8? Lol. What would make us jealous is when your n8 sells more than 1.7 million units in 3 days, lol. By the way, here's a link of nokia devices with reception issues similar to the iphone4 that no one really bothered with because it is already common for nokia devices to mess up :)
Iphone4' s 5mp camera bested the Droid X's 8mp camera.
If Nokia has ever had to mention on how to hold the phone in the right way, it's probably because of a formality. Just like in certain countries, the law states that all cigarette cases should have the message 'cigarette smoking is injurious to health' mentioned on the boxes, similarly Nokia has had to probably mention how to hold the ph in right way. But that is a general procedure followed by all the top brands and the only reason for this is because certain Apple IFans who switch over to Nokia, would begin holding their Nokia phones in such a way, that the mouth piece would face their ears..
Anyways, atleast Nokia, or any other mobile ph (except Apple) have not reported of dropped calls by because of holding the ph in an incorrect way.
In other words you have never heard anyone using Nokia stating that if you touch a particullar portion of Nokia ph, the call would drop. Never.
I just cant understand, why do we still have Apple IFans trying to justify that their freaking IPhone 4 is not at fault, when it has loads of flaws.
People just dup ur freaking IPhones and get your selves the Nokia N8. I can smell some kind of burning smelling.... Aaaahhhh I understand, it's b'coz IFans are burning out of jealousy on how is it that Nokias do not have any flaws.
Well Nokias are sophisticated devices.
Great videos taken and edited on the iphone4.
It's funny when nokia fanboys mock iphone and its users on how to hold a phone when nokia themselves also have the same issues, and also have written on their manual the proper way of holding a phone. At least Steve Jobs had the courage to tell everyone to their faces that one's way of holding the phone can affect antenna reception. Nokia had to write it on their manuals in fine print. Here's a link.
Subarno, 29 Jun 2010Hmm, weird, where I live in, I haven't seen a single Apple Iphone 4 so far....but that's a bit... moreYou are correct sir, it's about personal taste and what you are looking to get out of the device. The iphone is that for some and for others it's HTC, Sony, Samsung or Nokia. I don't understand the phone war between the owners of these different products. I guess we all have to pick a side.
