Apple iPhone 4 ReviewPosted on 2010-06-30 12:41:20 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Apple iPhone is no longer the Superman of the cellphone world, despite all the hoopla, lines and glitz. Every carrier now has (or will have) at least one comparable Android superphone, such as Sprint's EVO 4G, T-Mobile's Google Nexus, the upcoming Droid X from Verizon on July 15, and Samsung's Galaxy S from either AT&T or T-Mobile later this summer. Plus, the iPhone 4 also has to compete with the lower-priced 3G S, which also can run the new-and-improved multi-tasking iOS 4 operating system. The question really isn't whether the iPhone is a cool, new phone - it is. Its video chatting FaceTime is fascinating and fun, the Retina high-resolution screen is a salve to squinters, its 5-megapixel camera is exceptional. But the iPhone 4 also suffers from a couple of niggling issues which, now that you have plenty of superphone choices, make it less than it could have been.
