Ali, 02 Jul 2010Nice review guys. Opinion: No point in purchasing the iphone when its plagued with defects ... moreYou obviously didn't read the whole review. The review clearly stated that the reception of the iphone4 is much better than the 3gs. The issue only occurs when you grip that small aread of the phone, but is a non issue when you get a case for it.
Albert, 02 Jul 2010And you have not mentioned the Battery Life???? where is the part for the battery? or apple pa... moreThe iphone4's battery life has actually improved dramatically. So I do not know why the negative implication on your comment. Do you want proof that the iphone is actually a great device? It sold 1.7 million units in 3 days :)
Sentence from review >>> Oh, and it has a LED flash.
Because this is iphone.
In other mobiles review; the sentence used to be like this:
>>> Though it has LED flash, but dont count much as it is not providing worth lighting in dark.
This should not happen with people who review the product ?
What an attitude / bias / blind folding / fanboyyish !!!!
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2010its people like you who make the phone such a joke "i will follow apples marketing blindl... moreAnd who are you to tell me which device would work for me the best? You seem to imply that no one should buy the iphone. And why do you think that way? It's because you are jealous that the device of your choice is not as successful as the iphone. I bought the iphone not because Steve or anyone told me to buy it. People bought it because it's simply the best choice for us.
The iphone is very capable both on paper and in reality. It even bested other camera phones with higher megapixels, so how can you say that it's only good in paper? You are being dumb in making assumptions that people buy the iphone just because of the Apple logo. And what's so special about the Apple logo anyway? Are you accepting that the Apple logo means high quality and very good reputation? Because that's usually the reason why people would buy a product for the name. So by saying that we only buy the iphone because of the Apple logo, you're pretty much saying that Apple is indeed a great company with great devices :)
You nailed them gsma =))))

Nice review guys.
Opinion: No point in purchasing the iphone when its plagued with defects and short-comings. Its gonna be incredibly uncool having to fight for a decent reception signal during a call yourself or when your girlfriend is using it.
The First some what Unbiased Review i have seen our the Internet...
Kudos GSMARENA... I like iphone but its not the best...
I like Galaxy S over iphone bcoz it doesn't put stupid restrictions over the user...
And you have not mentioned the Battery Life???? where is the part for the battery? or apple paid you, so you don't do so!

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.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2010there is no way to be completely unbiased. besides compared to other sites this review is the ... morethats a rather narrow opinion, sure its impossible for some people to not be bias about some products but then they shouldnt be writing reviews of those products.
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.
