Apple is known for it’s class worldwide. They introduced the first real smart phone available for the consumers in 2007 and since then we know how not only Apple’s but so many smartphones all around have changed the world. Apple’s iPhone 4 is a work of art, it just looks so beautiful and it has the most unique quality of built when it released. The phone even today is one of the best performers in the world of smart phones thanks to Apple’s mobile operating system- iOS. Apple has come a long way since the release of the first iPhone and every generation they have got better and powerful- the Apple iPhone 4 is another statement to suggest the same.

Design

Like I said, when the iPhone 4 released it has the best and the most unique built in the large world of smartphone. When you saw one of these in the crowd, you knew you were looking at something very beautiful. Apple iPhone 4 is made out of glass and aluminium. When you hold this phone, it shouts back “premium” to you. The smart phone is very accurately curved on the edge and has a very flat back not even minute curves toward the edges. Most of the people who use Android and use Apple are surprised to know that single button on the front is all it takes to function the phone. There is a power button at the top, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB connector at the bottom and volume rockers at the left edge of the phone. Even the iPhone 4 does not come with a dedicated camera button though like Android it allows you to pull up the camera even from the lock screen. The Apple iPhone 4 is available in Black and White colours.

Display

Apple has always had the display what they call as “Retina” Display. It holds the powerful colour and contrast that is most suitable for the eye than any other display in the whole world even as of today, the Retina display remains unique. The display is just 3.5 inches long diagonally but still it is so beautiful that you won’t care about its size. Well today is a trend of 4 inches or longer smart phones but then what is the point if you compromise quality over it, that’s what I love about Apple- never compromise. The resolution of the display is 640×960 pixels with a pixel density of 330ppi. Well even though it is just 330ppi the display engineering team works with each pixels and with the software that goes into projecting this display shows each pixel with more colour and denser. Full HD content movies like fluid on this display with no problems whatsoever.

Camera

Apple iPhone 4 has a 5MP camera. You will get fooled easily just a 5MP camera but believe me just like the HTC 5MP sensors even this camera outperforms most of the other 5MP cameras and gets the best photos. There is no other 5MP camera that captures images with the detail as deep as it is on this one. Scenery shots on this phone just look absolutely stunning but you cannot help the resolution which is of max 2592×1936 pixels and hence the more you blow the image to see more detail the more distorted it will become. Primary camera takes videos in 720p HD quality and the front VGA camera in 480p quality. Apple iPhone 4 also has the HDR more to get even sharper and better lit photographs.

Software

Apple has the same iOS operating software over the range of devices they produce- the iPod touch, iPad and the iPhone. Unlike the Android devices it gets all the latest version of operating system that Apple has released this just tells you what kind of consideration and engineering goes before making one of these. Originally the Apple iPhone 4 came with iOS v4 but can be updated to v6 all thanks to the simplicity of software iOS. The whole phone can be navigated through by one hand and just one home button to which you can respond in different ways and it will give you variety of results. Notification panel gives you updates you have missed and all of them will be there even after a year if you have not viewed them. It offers you great social networking integration. You can update your facebook status or post a tweet from the notification panel itself.

Performance and Memory

Apple makes it’s own processors, this one has an Apple A4 chip inside and caries 512MB of RAM. The A4 chip is as fast as the 1GHz Dual Core processors. The touch on every Apple device is stunning and this phone is no exception. The phone responds really quickly and lag almost has no existence in iOS ecosystem. There are tons of apps available that you can choose and they will perform really well on the Apple A4 chip. The only thing lacking is true multitasking but then Apple users never felt a void because of that. Apple iPhone 4 comes in storage options of 8GB/16GB/32GB with no expandable memory. Only time you would be putting something inside the body would be the sim cards and that is it. The 1420mAh battery is quiet decent, it gives you 300h of stand by and 7h of talk time on 3G connection.

Final Thoughts

If you are looking to get your money worth then go for this phone it will not disappoint you. the retina display is wonderful, you get the best quality of apps from each domain in the world, the built is just out of the world and more of all its Apple! For those of you who want to make a style statement, this is your time to shine.

Apple iPhone 4 is available for Rs. 23590
