Submitted by lalit on June 23, 2010 - 12:38pm.

Apple introduced the new iPhone 4 featuring FaceTime video calling, highest resolution Retina display, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, HD video recording, Apple’s A4 processor, 3-axis gyroscope and up to 40 percent longer battery life on June 7th. The phone has all-new design of glass and stainless steel and is the thinnest smartphone in the world. It comes with iOS 4, which includes over 100 new features like Multitasking, Folders, enhanced Mail, deeper Enterprise support and Apple’s new iAd mobile advertising platform. iPhone 4 will be available in the US, UK, France, Germany and Japan on June 24th.

iPhone started the smartphone revolution in 2007 and most reviewers agree that with iPhone 4 Apple has again jumped ahead of the competition. Engadget’s Joshua Topolsky concluded his review by saying “We're not going to beat around the bush -- in our approximation, the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone on the market right now. The combination of gorgeous new hardware, that amazing display, upgraded cameras, and major improvements to the operating system make this an extremely formidable package. Yes, there are still pain points that we want to see Apple fix, and yes, there are some amazing alternatives to the iPhone 4 out there. But when it comes to the total package -- fit and finish in both software and hardware, performance, app selection, and all of the little details that make a device like this what it is -- we think it's the cream of the current crop.”

Almost every review points out that the iPhone 4 has the best screen on the market, amazing camera, and excellent design. iPhone 4’s design makes other smartphones like Nexus One and HTC Evo feel plasticky and cheap. However, the only downside to iPhone 4 in US is the overwhelmed AT&T network and every reviewer complained about it. AT&T promises that by end of this summer users will see vast improvement in the network, but they have promised the same thing before and haven’t yet delivered.
