    iphone 4 questions dissapointed!

    hi people ive had my iphone 4 for a week and not as good as i though
    the thing is i upgraded early to get this before i went egpyt for the camera mainly but dissapointed with it in flash mode.

    is these something i can get to sort it? it flashes etc but very dark picture, and safari sometime freezes
    and my emails was coming on the phone by txt not email unsure why?

    also is there any good apps or things for this number 4

    Have you put a case on it?

    Some of them are too close to the flash bulb and it reflects badly, and ruins pics. Just a thought.

    Have you updated to the latest iOS?

    If you turn on the HDR function, this will help somewhat with dark backgrounds or try using Photoshop Express from your iphone to see if you can improve the image.

    One app I'd say to check out is Epic Citadel, the graphics are stunning.

    i downloaded an app called HDR and it works a treat for pictures
    the normal camera app is pants

    Very important, its a phone, not a camera. If it were me going to egypt I would have taken a camera!!!!

    Check your email settings and try renewing the account, with regards to apps try facebook, bbc news, sky news, ebay, paypal, etc.

    iPhone is amazing

    hi thanks everyone,
    few answer yes i have the protective case on but dont see a problem with daylight pics so didnt think it matter with night pic,
    i understand the phone is a phone and not camera but the camera i have is 4mg and this is 5 and i took a few pics before i went and they was ok in day but never checked night,

    update unsure what firmware its on? when i got it i plug it in asked for update and it worked that it forgot to check which its running on,

    i have the bumper case on it

    A common misconception with quite a few people is that the higher the megapixel, the better it is. So even though the iPhone camera is good, it is no comparison for a proper camera with a proper lens and shutter system.

    Your 4mp will render better images than the iPhone.

    Plug it into iTunes and click update. See what happens. Then let me know your email provider so I can see what the issue is with the emails coming as texts.

    Hmm ok, you do need to set up your email account. Even though you are with O2 you dont need to use their emails. You can use your normal email. So if you delete the email accounts in the settings, then go in there and try to set your normal email up. All will be good.

    Plus, night time photography is a pain in the but even with £500+ worth of digital cameras, I have never tried it on iPhone to be honest.
