iPhone 4 Review: The Truth Behind The Hype

iPhone-4-Review-The-Truth-Behind-The-Hype

As you can see from these specs, the iPhone 4 hasn’t completely changed things. As the saying goes “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” However, some users will have expected more from this upgrade, including a higher quality camera. But the upgrades are still noticeable – especially the fantastic new screen resolution and sleek design. It’s worth the price if you’ve had your old iPhone for a while and want something new.

Pros And Cons Of The iPhone 4

There’s no getting around the fact that a phone like this is expensive. Even when you sign up to a long contract, you’re probably still going to have to pay. The iPhone 4 performs in much the same way as the iPod Touch, yet it costs far more – with added costs for calls on top of that.

Another complaint is the fact that the battery life still hasn’t improved over the last iPhone models. This is always a problem with smart phones that can be used for so many different applications.

On the plus side the iPhone is one of the hottest gadgets in the world today, thanks to its sleek design and the fact that it’s extremely easy to use (even for the non-tech savvy). It’s also made extremely well and feels good to hold.

Buying an iPhone also means you have access to the best app store in the world. Although there are some limits – Apple must approve all apps sold there – there’s an app for just about everything you can think of. Whether that means editing documents on the go, playing games or creating music, you can find free and paid apps that turn the iPhone 4 into a lot more than an ordinary cell phone!

Is There a 4G iPhone?

4G-iPhone

Everybody has heard about the iPhone 4 which was released in June of 2010. Being the fourth generation of the famous Apple iPhone, the company naturally called it the iPhone 4. Unfortunately, a bit of confusion arose from the name because many people thought it was a 4G iPhone. What’s In A Name? Coming after the Apple iPhone 3GS which was the third version of the iPhone, the iPhone 4 was promptly purchased by people who mistakenly thought the “4” stood for 4G. The error is understandable, considering that the previous version (iPhone 3GS) was a 3G smart phone that used the high speed 3rd generation mobile wireless data transfer network. Coming upon the heels of the 3G iPhone 3GS, you can’t blame them if people thought they were buying a 4G iPhone this time. A 4G iPhone would have used the lightning fast 4th generation network, also known as the LTE (Long Term Evolution) network. The 4G LTE network is up to 4 times faster than the 3G networks that people are currently using. Many consumers use their cellular service provider to provide their internet connection. It’s understandable that they would want their mobile phone service provider to ramp up their network to 4G standards to be able to make full use of any 4G device they may have. Conversely, if their carrier now uses a 4G network, they would want their smart phones to be equipped to take full advantage of a 4G LTE network. → Read More

The Apple iPhone dominates the smart phone market and it seems that everybody wants to have one. It has a sleek and beautiful design, highly responsive touch screen, and cool features including multitasking, HD video, sharp display, and many more. The Apple iPhone 4G price, however, makes people have second thoughts about buying the phone. This is true especially if you want to buy the iPhone 4G without a contract. iPhone 4G Price – Contract vs. No Contract You can buy an Apple iPhone or any other mobile phone with or without a contract. A mobile phone with contract is locked to that service provider and cannot be used with another carrier. There is an advantage when you purchase a locked iPhone. The price you pay for the iPhone will be considerably lower. However, you will be required to pay a monthly fee to the service provider, irrespective of your phone usage. The duration of the contract is usually one to two years. → Read More
