Is it to raise abit of cash... Or are the phones generally not that good?

Just wanted to know as I am stuck between buying the 4 or the 3gs!

If you can afford the 4 then get it. It has many features that the 3GS doesn't. Do not get me wrong, the 3GS is great. Its just that the 4 is better.

Yeah, I have the money for the 4... But trying to justify paying more for a phone than a 42, or even 50 inch LCD TV lol. I've found 3gs's going for half of the price - is it really worth double that?

What are the main differences, just the shape, resolution & facetime?

I quite like mine, sometimes lost the signal, but since I have the free bumper, it does work really well

Before I have the bumper, the proximity sensor wasn't that great, keep ending my call of placing it on MUTE all the time.

But to be honest, not much different, apart from the front camera. Missing my 3GS

the retina display the camera the led flash the hd video recording and the battery life all push it way ahead of the 3gs imo
#12
The iPhone 4 screen is better, the camera is better but not £200+ better IMO

I still prefer the rounded feel of the 3gs to my mates 4 tbh, speed tests show it is no quicker than the 3GS.

If you can afford one why not? But on the other hand you can have basically the same phone and 200 notes in your pocket by switching back to a 3GS.

I love my iPhone 4, just looking at it now is still stunning, how thin and neat it is, Camera is superb for holidays as i recorded many vids/ pics night and day and was blown away. Some apps take advantage of the hardware to have a unique experience. Compared to my 3g i had i wouldnt regret it at all seriously

My problems are....... none, i like to have a case to protect so i dont loss signal anyway. I think its better than b4 anyway. Get better strength on train and wifi signal is topnotch. And i don't have this proximity sensor thing when calling

But its not really free is it, you bought a £500 phone that has a serious design flaw without it, any sensible person would have returned the handset and waited for the new updated model to be released, but then apple and common sense doesnt really go hand in hand, the resale value of this first batch is going to hit the floor once a model that works is released :p

No..not always true, as Apple will replace my handset at anytime during 12 months warranty. And the replacement handset would be a new batch, isn't it ?

Having owned both, I would say that the iPhone 4 is not worth the £300 more you'd pay just for the screen, facetime and HD video recording.

The screen undoubtedly is the big selling feature, and it genuinely is amazing, but not £300 amazing. I've gone back to a 3GS and can live without the screen quite easily. Facetime is ok, but then again the technology has been around for donkeys years, it hasn't caught on so far and I don't think it will catch on now. The HD video recording is ok, but I think other cameras do it better, like the Samsung Galaxy S for instance. Having had that phone too (Yes I do swap phones quite a bit lol. - I've had all the best Android and iPhone phones at some point or other.), the HD video recording is far superior, as is the camera for taking still photographs.

So all in all, unless you really, really, really want a better screen just opt for the 3GS and wait for the iphone 5 to come out.

Buy iphone 4.
#18
Well some people sell them as they have a new job which comes with an iphone 4 (me). Some people need the money yes and some people dont.

I tried handing my iphone 4 off to my wife but she hates them and will stick with her 4 year old Nokia.

I love the iphone 4, i had some issues but the current one that just sold on the FS page is faultless.
Facetime is a great feature but will be better when you can use the 3G option imo.

I have always wanted an Iphone and now that I have the Iphone 4 I don't really get the hype? I had a Bold 9700 which was probably the best phone I have owned and it was so much better than the Iphone. The Iphone battery is crap, have to charge it twice a day, worst battery life ever on a phone maybe that's why people are selling their phones.

Facetime isn't a feature, only wifi and only iPhone to iPhone, all they've done is take video calling which loads of phones have had for years, screwed it up a bit, and added as many limitations as possible.


Jailbreaking solves the 'only wifi' issue. iPhone to iPhone isnt an issue as everyone should have one anyway.

This.

However, if someone like dcx got an iPhone, I'd sell mine in shame.

Same.

I'd probably buy an inferior phone and then pretend it's superior. Maybe something like an HTC, Samsung or Sony Ericsson (Do they still even make those?)

I have friends :p I can talk for 2 hours before the battery needs charging and also I have to limit my texts and emails because the battery will run out also I listen to my music and play apps. I would not recommend anyone getting the Iphone.

You must have high-maintenance /weird friends then.

Let's face it there are many reasons to dislike the iPhone 4 - like any other phone. However the iPhone has one of the best battery life specs in the smartphone world. The 3GS was good, the 4 even better. The early ones were admittedly not so good, but you need to pick a better reason - cos battery life issues ain't one.

Maybe you had a faulty device?

I don't think I do, it works fine :| Like I have said I have never owned an Iphone, I had a BB9700 which had the best battery life on a phone. I charged it every 3 days ( 5 even when I have it in its magnetic holder) so when I compare it to this, it seems really pee poor. I get a lot of minutes and texts so I like to use them up 8)
