personally i think the iphone is a fine and capable device on paper, but the flaws it has are pretty unacceptable but what worse is the people who will blindly buy it just because of the brand. "i dont care that my phone is rubbish, as long as its apple" what tripe
I like the fact that they emphasized that the iphone can actually make calls and that it actually has better reception than the 3gs, and the mention of the bumper case pretty much solving the reception issue.
I am very happy with my iphone4. It's an awesome phone. But it's popularity and succes has made it an object of harsh criticism and scrutiny. It has set such a high standard for itself that it left itself so little room for flaws that haters and the media has blown out of proportions to get attention. Flaws that are otherwise trivial in other devices.
Nevertheless, iphone users will definitely enjoy their iphones and will find this a very useful device. For the first time, I can actually leave my digital camera at home. Never did I thought of the iphone to excel so well in that department. It is proof that megapixels aren't all that.
My iphone is not w/out issues. I have a yellow tint streak on my screen, that goes away and comes back. But Apple already set up an appointment for me to have it replaced at an Apple Store as soon as there's one available for me. Other than that, I am very happy of my iphone4 :)
oh gsmarena,please don't compare iphone 4 with samsung galaxy s,google nexus one,htc desire,nokia n8...it'll make iphone look useless...i'm one of those millions who are less impress with all the generations of the iphone...i still prefer a high end smartphone than a average ordinary phone like an iphone..to most people if a phone is good doesn't matter how much it is as it's worth the money...i've own many phones and they are either as expensive as the iphone or even more expensive..and all of them are worth the price=)
From GSM Arena review: You can't make a phone that everyone loves and Apple is not even trying. Much like any other iPhone so far, the iPhone 4 is a phone that everybody loves AND hates.
I don't hates the iPhone. iPhone is GREAT!!! but I hate the claim it makes as the GOD phone. It's great, have some pro and cons, but is not the best!
Wot unbiased?gsm says that if full bars are there then calls won't get dropped but there are many videos that even with full signal strength,the calls were getting dropped.
Not as good as so many other phones out there. But for some reason idiots line up overnight so they can have one. Its like they tapped into the fanboy market. If people actually looked at the good and bad things about the phones out there apple would not be so popular. Dont buy this just because its famous; they dont deserve your money.

A great piece of engineering but with too many downsides. Smartphone? The only smartness it has, it´s Aplle´s own built in. So much potential limited by an obscured vision of the future. With Apple, you´re shown a path, and that path you "must" follow. You´re not technologically free with an iPhone. Marketing makes you believe, the feel makes you believe but, your needs, in the end, will make the rules.

The iPhone 4 may not be the best phone or anywhere near perfect but it ... morelol i never even said anything about the iphone being a bad phone with no good features, but this review clings desperately to only glorifying the few good features it has while very briefly skimming over the cons by simply putting them in a few lists and moving on. this review was completely one sided in every respect. and the reason i have to read these reviews is because im meant to be selling the phone once it hits my shores.
[deleted post]What's wrong with you? The iPhone 4 may not be the best phone or anywhere near perfect but it does have its pros which this review covers very well. As much as it might kill you, you have to give them credit for what they have contributed to the touchscreen smart phone era. If you don't like it then why bother ready anything related to the iPhone at all? It's seems that only a totally anti-iPhone review would make you happy. The phone has its cons, a good amount actually, but it still it has its pros which many users feel outweighs its cons
Good review, but I'm steering well clear of any Apple product.
A mobile phone that costs this much shouldn't have a flaw as fundamental as signal strength.
I think Apple have lost the plot really...
For me, the 3,5 inch display is a no-go!! Apple should've concedered atleast 4'... And this could be a major point for US peach lovers..Cause remember the 1st iPhone had a magical display that engraved in many 1-neuron brains.. It made all the difference those days with 2' symbiotic nokias and window-tard touch sistem.. Tha game has changed and except for pumped-up brightness and a few more pixels, applez has remain the same in their view of the business.. I belive that they could've done THREE times better at-least with a normal CEO!! If I had that job,(google and microsoft would sees to exist a few years back) 20 times better... But times have changed in tha mobile world..And the sun doesnt alway shine..Anywhere.. c-u in 12 months...
The active sound cancellation should go a long way to illuminating my biggest complaint with the previous generation iPhones.
Industry leading screen resolution.
A camera that's is respectable for a high end cell phone.
I imagine there is no choice regarding font sizes: making it hard to use for anybody with other than normal near vision.
