The Apple iPhone 4

Key features

  • Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • 3.5″ 16M-color LED-backlit TFT capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 960 px resolution

  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n
  • GPS with A-GPS connectivity; digital compass

Main disadvantages

  • Hardware design is prone to reception issues
  • MicroSIM card support only
  • No Flash support in the web browser
  • No true multitasking for all applications
  • FaceTime video calls work only over Wi-Fi
  • No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode
  • No hardware shutter key for the camera
  • No FM radio
  • No stereo speakers
  • No microSD card slot (Somewhat compensated by a 16/32GB inbuilt memory)
  • No smart dialing
  • Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content
  • Bluetooth v2.1
  • Poor loudspeaker performance

One would think the iPhone fans would know better. The only good part is, its $199! Sadly enough, it doesn’t apply to us Indians. (It’s about 50k+ here)


PS: A thing I saw recently… looks like it’s real sturdy…
