Here’s my video review on the iPhone 4 (below). Sorry for the quality of the video however, I accidentally fried my Panasonic Xacti camcorder when I plugged in the wrong adapter…(one of the issues of having so many gadgets). So I had to attempt taking it with my Canon G11 camera. That’ll be the last time I do that as the video quality wasn’t so great.
In the iPhone 4 Video, you’ll see me compare the iPhone 4 with the superseded iPhone 3GS. You’ll also see a demonstration of the new 5 Megapixel camera that now comes with a LED flash and of course, what would this iPhone 4 video be without a demonstration of Apple’s out of the box video conferencing application, FaceTime.
Why I Love The iPhone 4
This is now Week #2 with the Telstra iPhone 4 and I must say that I’m still very much enamored by it. It does everything that the iPhone 3GS did but faster! For me the best features of the iPhone 4 are the super vibrant retina display, zippier Apple A4 chip, 5 Megapixel with LED flash, front facing camera and FaceTime. Putting all these together makes Apple once again leap ahead of the competition once again. But with the release of excellent devices like the HTC Desire and Samsung Galaxy S, the gap is slowly closing.
What Antenna Issue?
The first question that a lot of my friends ask is “What about the antenna issue?” To be quite honest, I have failed to replicate the issue with my iPhone 4. I’ve tried the “death grip” but did not experience any drop outs on Australia’s fastest network: Telstra NextG. I really do believe that the whole antenna issue was blown way out of proportion. I don’t even use the bumper case that was given as I prefer to hold the phone without it.
If you’ve encountered this issue, please leave a comment below on how the situation in which it occurred and which network you were with. I’d especially like to hear from Australians.
