iPhone 4 Review, Specs and features
Each time Apple releases a new gadget there’s always a huge fuss over what’s going to be on offer, and the iPhone 4 is no different. If you want to know whether it really lives up to the hype, here’s a guide to the iPhone 4 features.
How Do the iPhone 4 Features Compare to Previous iPhone Models?
The iPhone 4 is designed to be an upgrade on previous models, but it doesn’t completely change things. And why would Apple want it to? They already have a very good thing going with the iPhone series that millions of users around the world love. The good news, however, is that they have taken some of the main complaints of older models into account, as well as giving the design a sleek new revamp.
A Guide to the iPhone 4 Specs
Screen: The first thing on this list of new iPhone 4 features is the screen, which now includes a resolution far greater than previous models, at 960 x 640 pixels. This makes the 3.5 inch display very impressive compared to any other phone on the market.
Design: The design, as a whole, is considered to be a lot more slick than the previous iPhone models, and the iPhone 4 no longer makes use of curved lines. You’ll notice a much bigger difference in the iPhone 4 than you ever did since the original model was upgraded to the 3G and 3GS.
Available Models: The iPhone 4 is available in 16GB or 32GB and comes in both black and white (like previous models).
iOS4: The new operating system, iOS4, helps to make the iPhone 4 as impressive at it is. One of the major complaints of the older models was that they didn’t include multitasking. This now comes as standard on the iPhone 4, with much better controls for applications. Although it isn’t quite complete (it doesn’t work with all apps), it’s still a huge improvement.
Features: Some of the other new features that come with the operating system include home screen folders to stop you having to scroll through too many pages of apps, a new master email inbox that will display all of your accounts in one place, and iBooks (originally seen on the iPad) for reading and downloading eBooks.
Photo and Video: The iPhone 4 features also include new video options. There is a front-facing self portrait camera and rear-facing camera, which allow you to make video calls and create videos in 720p, high definition at 30 frames per second. Users will benefit from an improved 5 megapixel camera including LED flash, touch-to-focus feature and fast shutter speed. There are, of course, better camera phones on the market – but this is fantastic for a smartphone.
Is It As Good As Everyone Says?
The iPhone 4 really does offer up a number of noticeable improvements to the previous models. Take a look at the iPhone 4 features and you’ll see a lot added that had been lacking before. The main drawback was the fact that the signal strength seemed to drop when holding the iPhone 4 over the antenna. However, Apple helped to overcome this by offering free cases to its customers.
The known truth is that the device is still a huge seller and widely regarded as the best, and most striking, smartphone out there today.

Display, casing, and camera
The Phone5s will surely include a Super HD screen display and camera. An article from China Times says that “Touch on Display” pane is currently developed by Apple’s known supplier in Taiwan.
The report claims that the new display has a 10 point multi-touch and 0.5mm thickness which is far superior to what the latest iPhone model has.
Have you heard about iPhone Math? This is a plastic iPhone rumored to be released in June to cater the need of a cheap but high-performance Smartphone.
Analysts deem that the new iPhone will come in various sizes yet there’s no hard proof to support their words.
