"iPhone 4 White - 32GB"

After having used my iPhone 3G 16GB for over two years, I have bought the iPhone 4.
My specific iPhone, is the iPhone 4 White 32GB.

I have waited a little while buying the iPhone, because I wanted to make sure all the irregularities which come with new devices, were solved.

I noticed the box, in wich the iPhone 4 is packed, is almost three times as small as the box of the previous iPhones, yet, all the accessoires are snugly fit.
A charger USB chord and a socket plug, the tipical iPhone earplugs, manual, and a small metal pin to extract the simcard holder from the phone, And not to forget, the iPhone itselfs ofcourse.
As I always feel Apple has one of the most stylish packaging material, this box is in my opinion, just like anything else, very stylish and what I would expect from Apple.

The USB charger chord, is pretty much the same as the previous models.
The socket plug however, is a lot smaller. Which is in my opinion a great feature.
It will easily fit in my purse, which makes me able to charge my iPhone practicaly everywhere.
The iPhone earplugs are the same as given with the iPhone3, white chord, no snug fit in ear pieces. For as far as im concerened, I rather use inear plugs, always have, and always will, so the Apple earplugs which were delivered with my iPhone will not be used by me.
The metal pin to extract the simcard holder, is also the same as with previous models. which brings me to the next point, the simtray holder is smaler. only micro sim cards will fit. My phone provider provided me with a micro sim for free.
The iPhone itself is both back and front side, covered with an anti scratch film.
Unfortunately, both films have a small grip lift on the bottom, which prevents you from keeping the anti scratch films on with normal use. Therefore, you will have to buy additional screen protectors if you prefere a film protecting your iPhone.
From my point of view, Apple better had left out the gripping parts on the protector films, so the user could have a choice wether to leave the protector film on or not.

First impression:
I think the metal/chrome looking band around the iPhone looks very classy.
When i turned it on for the first time, I instantly saw a big difference with the previous model, on how clear the retina display is.
Where the older iPhone sometimes seemed to show pixels, from my point of view, this retina display is so clear, you barely can spot any individual pixels.

The iPhone4 White 32GB is just as userfriendly as the previous model for as far as im concerned. there are ofcourse some additions like multi tasking (which i dont use) and gathering apps in maps (saves a lot of screen space, i can fit all my apps in just 1 screen). I love how user friendly Apple's software is, and Apple continues to provide that user friendlyness with this model.

All and all I am very pleased with the iPhone4 White 32GB, and the accessoires provided by Apple. I personally prefere the white color, but also the black version is very appealing to my eye. The metal looking band adds a certain classy look.
I personally would deffinately buy the next version of the iPhone, as i have very little complaints about this version as well as the previous one.

Product Information : Apple iPhone 4 32GB

Manufacturer's product description

While everyone else was busy trying to keep up with iPhone, Apple were busy creating amazing new features that make iPhone more powerful, easier to use, and more indispensable than ever. The result is iPhone 4. The biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone. All the breakthrough technology in iPhone 4 is situated between two glossy panels of aluminosilicate glass - the same type of glass used in the windshields of helicopters and high-speed trains. Chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic, the glass is ultra-durable and more scratch resistant than ever. It's also recyclable. The 960-by-640 backlit LCD display boasts a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, making it the highest-resolution phone screen ever. To achieve this, Apple engineers developed pixels so small - a mere 78 micrometers across - that the human eye can't distinguish individual pixels. That makes text remarkably sharp and graphics incredibly vivid. IPS technology also provides excellent colour and contrast from almost any viewing angle. Created from Apple's own alloy, then forged to be five times stronger than standard steel, the CNC-machined band is the mounting point for all the components of iPhone 4. The band provides impressive structural rigidity and allows for its incredibly thin, refined design. It also functions as both iPhone 4 antennas. Apple engineers designed the A4 chip to be a remarkably powerful yet remarkably power-efficient mobile processor. With it, iPhone 4 can easily perform complex jobs such as multitasking, editing video, and placing FaceTime calls. All while maximizing battery life. iPhone 4 includes a built-in three-axis gyroscope. When paired with the accelerometer, it makes iPhone 4 capable of advanced motion sensing such as user acceleration, full 3D attitude, and rotation rate. Translation: More motion gestures and greater precision for an even better gaming experience. The iPhone 4 camera shoots gorgeous 5-megapixel photos and stunning HD video. And with its advanced backside illumination sensor, it captures beautiful images even in low-light settings. The built-in LED flash does double duty. When you're taking pictures, it works as a flash. When you're shooting video it can stay on to light up the scene. And on the front of iPhone 4, the built-in camera is perfect for making FaceTime calls and shooting self-portraits. While most phones have only one microphone, iPhone 4 has two. The main mic, located on the bottom next to the dock connector, is for phone calls, voice commands, and memos. The second mic, built into the top near the headphone jack, is for FaceTime calls and for making your phone calls better. It works with the main mic to suppress unwanted and distracting background sounds, such as music and loud conversations. This dual-mic noise suppression helps make every conversation a quiet one. With its large Multi-Touch display and innovative software, iPhone lets you control everything using just your fingers. How does it work? A panel laminated on the glass senses your touch using electrical fields. It can register multiple touches at once to support advanced gestures such as pinch to zoom, two-finger tap, and more. The panel then transmits the information to the Retina display below it.
