The iPhone 4 offers you a revamp in finishing touches with glass and stainless steel. It is also bundled with numerous exciting features: FaceTime, which makes real time video calling come to life, plus brand new Retina display from Apple, featuring extremely high resolution, the most ever offered on a cell phone. The screen holds onto it’s dimensions of 3.5 inches, but in addition now offers you a resolution of 960 x 640 pixels, four times as many pixels as the iPhone 3G and 78% of the pixels of an iPad.
The first thing that really stands out on the iPhone 4 is the Retina Display screen that measures 3.5 inches but still enjoys a resolution four times greater than the 3G model iPhone with 960 x 640 pixels! The processor is also revised upwards as it is now the famous Apple A4 processor running at 1 GHz and supported by 512 MB of memory (RAM). Multimedia side, the sensor autofocus camera now offers 5 megapixels and is supported by an LED flash. The capture of video is also clearly improved since the iPhone 4 can now record video in HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p). Just like every year with Apple, new smartphone, the new operating system. It is therefore iOS4 in this iPhone 4.
As for autonomy, the battery is a little bigger now with 1420 mAh. It’s not much more than the 3G, but Apple promises a 40% gain in useage. Overall the iPhone 4 is a very compact size of 115 x 58.6 x 9.3 mm. Note that the device found in versions for 16GB and 32GB. As with previous models, there is no port for a possible inclusion of a memory card.
What we found really strikes us with the new iPhone 4 is obviously brand new design. In the past where complete information for each new iPhone has been jealously guarded, the iPhone 4 has had many leaks. Photos had been circulating around the web for several months before its release. Most people, including us, were scraed that the design would be downright ugly. Yet, this iPhone 4 is certainly the most beautiful of all the iPhone’s so far, and even one of the best mobile phones ever released.
All in all this is about the best Apple iPhone realeased to date, until the iPhone 5 perhaps? For that we will have to wait and see…
