The iPhone is at the top of the list of the best smartphones today. With its speed, slickness and svelte, you won’t find anything quite like it.
With each new one that comes into the market, Apple prides itself in improving more and more each time. And now, with the iPhone 4, it is no exception.
One of the first differences you will notice first off is the new look. For starters, it’s noticeably thinner and according to Apple, the “thinnest smartphone on the planet”. The new model comes with a new look, not only the more squared off shape, but without the plastic backing found on previous models. The iPhone 4 is covered front and back in aluminosilicate glass, said to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic. All this comes with a fingerprint resistant finish.
One of the biggest features being talked about today is the display with an amazing resolution of 960 by 640. With the same screen size as the 3GS, it has four times the amount of pixels. Apple has given it the name “Retina display” and says it has more pixels than what the human eye can see. The screen is remarkably clear and crisp.
As far as software goes the iPhone 4 uses Apple iOS version 4 and as always, easy to use and intuitive, working in every way as you would expect it to. With the iOS 4 come several new features such as multi-tasking ability, allowing you to have more than one third party app going at a time. When switching between apps, simply minimize the one that is open to a tray that you can access to return to another app. Some of the other new features you will find in iOS 4 are a new mail client, folders for organizing your apps and a game center.
You also have many options for fast web browsing as the iPhone 4 supports 802.11n wireless networks. The Safari browser continues to be the best mobile browser around, allowing you to open many tabs at a time, view desktop or mobile versions of web pages and easily zoom in and out.
As far as the camera goes, it offers a 5 megapixel camera which comes as quite
a step up from the 3.2 megapixel of the 3GS. It also includes a 5x digital zoom and an LED flash.
So, all in the all, the iPhone once again is keeping up with the times and staying at the top of the list when it comes to smartphones today.
