The iPhone is in its fourth year, and with the new iPhone 4, they decided to give the device a new look. First thing that you will notice is the glass on both sides of the device, and with a nice steel trim around it. I would like to point out that this steel trim not only serves as style, but also as function. This trim is the antennas that drive this device.
Second thing you might notice is the camera system. There is now a second camera built onto the front of the device so that you can activate FaceTime, a new feature from Apple, where you can do video calls over the device while on wifi. You will also notice on the back of the camera, there is a new little LED light that acts as a flash for the new 5 megapixel camera.
Also with this new camera system, you can shoot HD video at 720p and 30 fps (frames per second). Along with being about to shoot HD video, Apple is also releasing the iMovie app to the App Store so that you can now edit your HD movies right in the palm of your hand. This app will cost $4.99.
The new iPhone 4 also comes with a new screen, called a Retina display. They have quadrupled the pixels of the screen so that you get an incredibly clear picture and text. It is equivalent to the type that you would get on a laser newspaper at over 300+ dpi (dots per inch).
Apple has put it’s own chip into this device, the A4 chip, which is a smaller chip then the previous iPhone, and they are starting to use MicroSD cards. This led them to be able to put a larger battery into the new iPhone 4, which upped the battery life from the previous version by 40%.
And my last point that I would like to highlight about the new iPhone 4 is the Gyroscope that has been added to the device. The gyroscope will allow for an even more accurate position and functionality for developers when creating all new apps for the App Store. This along with the accelerometer, GPS, and all of the other features of the iPhone, makes this iPhone stand out in a class of its own.
This phone with its new features, new apps being released, HD video, a gyroscope and a more precise and beautiful display will make this be the greatest phone on the market today.
