Why would one buy this product whereas HTC and Samsung already have far better products? I think that's because of being prejudiced! Don't u think so? And needless to say, it is widely loved in the u.s and not in other countries. Everything is locked on this stupid phone! Apple can make better products but they don't, cause they can market their faulty products, so why would they bother themselves! They know there a great number of people out there who can't wait to buy their faulty products!

First, Steve Jobs teaches us how we should be holding our beloved iPhones. Next, he tells us its a software glitch. Now he wants us to cover certain part of our phones - and hopefully we'll live with it.
Even organizations like ConsumerReports have already spoken out against the iPhone4 after repeatedly testing the product in their labs.
In my opinion, Apple is slowly approaching Toyota-land with this defective product.
LOS ANGELES/SAN FRANCISCO, July 13 - Shares of Apple Inc (AAPL.O) slid more than 4 percent on Tuesday after a poor review for its iPhone 4 from an influential consumer guide underpinned mounting complaints about the hot-selling device's reception and spurred speculation about a product recall.
Why do you think they arent selling them at the moment! NO, its not because they havent made enough! May it be because all the iphone 4's are flawed? Ithink so! Get ready to send your iphone back.
I disagree with some statements in the review.
1. Still no true multitasking is not a con, it's a plus. I never, ever want full multitasking that will slow down what I'm doing, as on so many other phones.
2. The reception issue is a REAL issue. Don't tell me it can be eliminated by a bumper or other cover - bottom line is that if it does not work perfectly out of the box, it's an issue. And simply because I'm left handed and stay in an area with limited reception, you cannot expect me to cover up my beautiful phone the way Apple is covering up this issue.
3. I hate custom wallpapers, and think it creates a bad user experience, with icons and a background both fighting for attention. The background should be black, like the phone.
The iPhone 4 is a defective product as it is due to the reception issue - and no matter what software fix Apple comes out with it won't fix a HARDWARE problem. Did Steve Jobs know about this problem an still decided to sell the phone is another issue. If you need to purchase a third party product to fix the signal loss problem like a case then the very least thing Apple should do is provide a case completely FREE or in a-worst-case-i-don't-think-it-will-happen-ever-scenario a recall.
Nice design outside - crappy inside.
ionutzm05, 06 Jul 2010Main disadvantages
- Hardware design is prone to reception issues - I agree
- MicroSIM card ... moreYou forget one important cons:
Iphone 4 is not back compatible with older versions of Apple OS like Tiger. Its like buying an expensive gadget windows7 compatible but won't work with xp. Now that sucks....
It's not being a fanboy of apple... They make a device once which lasts forever not like others who just keeps on updating phones as to match the iPhone.it is true that other companies try to compete against apple as apple sets the benchmark and others follow..iPhone 4 is the benchmark and now let's see which all phone comes closer to it till the next year before another gem is revealed by apple.....
well apple fanboys,your iphone 4 may have a dodgey proximity sensor,screen showing dead pixels or spots and liable to smash or crack,potential fire risk when charging through usb and your itunes account may be hack and result in you getting a large bill but it seems apple has tackled and found a solution to the iphone 4s most awful fault its 'death grip' poor reception with this great new invention.....haha see here for the best solution!!!
NMG, 09 Jul 2010sorry you are wrong, simplewell, you can't handle the truth!!!
so itunes fraud has been happening again,thousands getting ripped off using apps from the travel section,between dodgey screen,antennas and usb cables exploding and immenmt broken screen claims things cant go any worse for apples new overpriced con. Its almost like their too busy counting the all fanboys buckets of offloaded cash to repair all the faults or see the itunes crumbling
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2010The Galaxy S rips this phone to shreads, I just don't get the fascination with the iphone....e... moreI am glad there are people who think like this..else I'd never get my hands on an iPhone 4!! They are nowhere to be seen.
so reports are coming in of iphones 4 usb port catching fire and melting,the list of flaws/dodgey materials continues!
Had this phone for few days. Nothing special. Moreover. How can you not use 32GB as usb mass storage? Instead You have to sync everytime with crappy Itunez, install it on every computer?? How can you make video call only through wifi?? How can you not send nice photos via bluetooth?? This phone is not for professional people. Previously, In 3GS I could not copy contacts to SIM by default software. Rubbish!! If you do not need all this, thats fine. Get it. I sold it quickly because the only good thing with iPhone4 was I got good money for it.
Apple made 1b or 1000 million from iPhone4 in 3 days because people love iPhone. I found Iphone 6 months ago,they are fantastic,1000's of free apps and 1000's of really really cheaps ones. Check out all the people that come to apple and have a cry and put it down. Now go to the other phone makes,not too many Iphone people whinging about those phones-and they all have faults or dont do something that the next phone does do. If u dont like it dont buy it,simple hey! Apple has and will continue to set bench marks and records. The phone companies now have app stores becuase they copied Apple because they started a great thing,imagine a phone with no apps....boring!! The sooks should be thanking Apple.
