Who would have ever foreseen that phone calls would be thought of as obsolete? People now utilize video calls instead of phone calls.
Books no longer have pages but are read electronically. Even e-mail is not quick enoughÂ—you utilize Facebook mobile instead in order to get a hold of someone at real time. Buttons and cursors are now out-of-date, hence the popularity of touchscreens. Enter the 4th Gen iPhone or 4G iPhone.
This sudden revolution started when Steve Jobs changed the multimedia world with his ingenious work of the iPhone. The iPhoneÂ’s features werenÂ’t conceived overnight, but neither did it needed an entire era. It needed less than three years to be accurate.
The 4G iPhone is a sleek multimedia communication device.
First and foremost, all the basic features have almost doubled their performance. Its 600 MHz processor speed is increased to 1 GHz and its 256Mb memory is now 512MB. These upgrades though is needed for the 4G iPhoneÂ’s latest media features.
The new video call application called Â“FaceTimeÂ” is supported with the 5 megapixel dual camera (one located right above the phoneÂ’s display) with 5X digital zoom, a LED flash, and dual noise-canceling microphones.
The 4G iPhoneÂ’s impressive Â“Retina DisplayÂ”is a 3.5-inch LED-backlit display with a 800:1 contrast ratio and a high resolution of 960×640 at 326 ppi. The display is so impressive that it tops the capability of the human eye to see the pixes at a 12-inch distance.
Some features of the iPhone 3GS were of course incorporated as well, such as Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth, and digital compass. Battery life has also modestly lengthened as well, by an additional 1 to 2 hours on all usage, from talk time, web or Wi-Fi use, music, and video.
Unfortunately, the 300 hours standby time wasnÂ’t increased as well.
The new edgy look is supposed to enhance the signal capability of the 4G iPhone. The stainless steel band wrapped on its sides function as external antennas. Its smooth front and back cover is composed of aluminosilcate glass.
There are two kinds of 4G iPhones: iPhone 4 (GSM) and iPhone 4 (CDMA). The CDMA was launched in order to address user complaints about the inconsistent signal due to the Â“death gripÂ”. Supposedly if you hold the phone at a certain angle it loses its signal.
That is why this version is quite the same except for a few changes in the button placements and antenna. The price range of the phone is US$300 for the 32 GB model, which is similar to the prices of AppleÂ’s past phones when newly released.
