Apple’s case protects the phone and should help with reception problems caused by obscuring the antenna
Despite its flat front and back, and a case that’s only 9mm thick, the iPhone 4 feels solid and sturdy, even though it is the thinnest smart phone out there. The iPhone 4 includes an extra microphone for noise-cancelling purposes. The output of the iPhone 4′s speaker is asier to hear than that of previous iPhones, and a user doesn’t have to place it against our lugholes.
Apple’s calls its display as a ‘retina display’, and it has a 960×640-pixel resolution, which is quadruple the number of pixels sported by the iPhone 3GS in the same 89mm (3.5-inch) area.
The phone’s display is good and when comparing to the stunningly clear, 480×854-pixel screen of the Motorola Milestone, the iPhone 4′s display has the advantage because of its bright whites and midnight-dark blacks.
The iPhone 4 runs the latest version of the iPhone operating system, iOS 4. The multitasking feature offers advantages, even without updated applications.
The iPhone’s email app has also improved as a user can now read new emails from all the accounts in one combined inbox, and group conversations as in Gmail. A user can add wallpaper to the home screens and sort the icons into folders.
The resolution is 5 megapixels, and an LED photo light to help out in dark situations. With a steady hand, it’s easy to get decent shots with the iPhone 4 and the shots in dim conditions are good because of the LED light. The on-screen controls for the LED light are easy to use. The iPhone 4′s camera has a super-fast shutter speed as it takes only a split second to capture a shot after a user has pressed the on-screen shutter button.
The iPhone 4 also records 720p, high-definition video at 30 frames per second, and video has the same tap-to-focus feature that previous iPhones only offered when taking still photos.
Apple offers an easy-to-use interface that makes video calls easy to make and control. FaceTime has plenty of pleasing features, including the fact that the image of users friend’s mug rotates automatically when a users chum rotates the handset.
The iPhone 4 also ramps up the Wi-Fi speed, with support for the latest 802.11n standard. HSPA connectivity enables fast downloads and uploads over 3G.
