The iPhone 4 brings some long-awaited features to the iPhone table, without trying to do everything the competition can do.

With Apple, it's always the little things that count.

Verizon rumors for iPhone? Anyone? Please share!
Can anyone conform this?
ZAGG protective coating to help with reception?
If the wdges are covered by a plastic coating wouldn't that keep the two antennas from shorting each other?
Has anyone installed ZAGG's invisibleSHIELD on their iPhone 4 or know someone who has?
Btw, a good place for ZAGG discount codes is facebook.com/zaggcodes or codes4discount.com
It all comes down to this.....
I feel it all comes down to opinion. You really have to look at the user and decide what the device is used for. If you like to personalize your device, mulit-task (for real), run widgets, ect., then maybe Android is for you. (If you are and Apple fan-boy, then maybe you should stick with Apple, JK guys!) If you like the integration of iTunes, ease of use, and gaming, then maybe the iPhone is better for you. In different parts of the world Nokia's Symbian OS would crowned king in some eyes.
Again, IMOP, this is a nice piece of technology, and I think its up there with the other N1s, EVOs, and Droids in the indust...

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Didn't Like Design?!
The iPhone-4 though is the best -- I've never held a device that felt so rich. Elegance oozes from the look and feel of the device. I got one of the overpriced bumpers, which in their own right are quite well designed and built, but when it's on, I miss that metal band -- hate to cover it up, though the iPhone looks great with that as well.
I'd say this device needs protection when ou...
Wow... can't believe you were so down on the design. The feel of the glass and metal gives me the perception of a fine watch. I've suffered through many a creaking battery door, 'soft-touch' devices where the rubber

So the smart choice would be..........
I'm glad you like your Evo.
Enjoy sprint. 🤣
First off, I tend to agree with the author on the design of the phone. I've always been a huge fan of the iphones, and while I'm still getting the phone (waiting on the white) I'm not thrilled with the design when testing out my friends phone. I'll deal with it though.
As far as image quality - I was happy to hear that the authors tests came out great. I had compared image and video quality on my 3Gs vs the ...
The phone is a train wreck! 🤣 🤣
the app must be first updated to the latest available update, if they have not updated to the e...
Social Networking and integration...
I can see why Apple doesn't want Apps to come close to hurting performance. Apple doesn't want to be blamed for a program messing up their phone...because on the consumer side, it won't be, "Awe man, that App made my phone run slow" it will be, "My phone runs slow."
And to be honest, I'm also glad those apps don't come preinstalled. One of my biggest problems with smartphones is givi...
"If I want to bog down my device by running social networking apps integrated with my OS that should be my decision, not Apple's."
