The Pros and Cons of the iPhone 4

A short post of what i think about the iPhone 4
By: Frederik

Pros

1. Camera
A nice thing about the iPhone is the HD camera, with 5 megapixel. It can capture crisp 720p video, which is impressive for an mobile phone.
I recently read about an South Korean film director, who filmed an entire movie with an iPhone 4. And it is going to be interesting to see how it turns out.

2. Retina
The Retina display is very nice, it is 4 times better than the old iPhone's display, if compared to a iPhone 3GS the difference is easy to spot. In medical terms retina is the name of a light-sensitive tissue that lies in the back of the eye. It functions the same way film does in a camera.

3. Facetime
Facetime is an interesting function, never before have handheld video conversations had such good quality, and been so simple to use. This is a great example of what Apple does best: investigating the market, researching and improving and in the end, developing a much greater product at the time of release.

Even though the iPhone 4 is a great device, there will always be some minor problems.
Cons

1. Multitasking
Multitasking is not working very well for once, you cannot run multiple apps at the same time, if you switch from app to app one of them will pause instead of running in the background.

2. Screen lock
Unlike the iPad the iPhone 4 is missing a screen lock, this is very annoying. If you are laying in your bed watching a movie, it won't take much movement, for the iPhone to switch from standard view to landscape.

Conclusion
Overall the iPhone 4 is a very nice device and perhaps in the future Apple will fix some of the issues when the iPhone 5 arrives. I personally think the iPhone 4 is one of the best mobile devices on the market right now.
