If you intend upgrading sense-an actual Apple phone, the iPhone 4 is the answer. Judging from older products, such as from 3G to 3G, then there are only some things are improved, such as from 3G to HSDPA support. Now you can feel a lot of stuff on the iPhone 4.

"There are no cracks Ivory", may be the most fit proverb to describe this brand-new iPhone. Although looking perfect, feels much better than previous products and has a variety of features that promise Friday, the phone still has some disadvantages.

Some people may be understandable lack of proficiency level, but for others may be small things that become a reason to not buy it. Through this brief review, we can be equally informed.

There are changes that are brave enough to do this Apple's iPhone 4. When we first opened its cardboard box as usual made ​​small and elongated, we will feel the iPhone candybar form this time more vulgar. Eits do not think negative always yes!

Say goodbye to the iPhone casing with rounded edges, plus the back of the form a curve. Now that Apple designed the iPhone 4 with the edges of a more assertive and ornate aluminum material.
The 'back' it was no longer curved (or mencembung), but made flat, just like the front (screen). Where both the front and rear, equally thick plastic coated glass. If we remember again, just put the iPhone earlier this plastic coating glass display section only.
At first glance it would seem slick. Least able to create futuristic effects, as well as sturdy. But besides that there is a problem that is ready to lurk. Such damage to the casing. The reason, the protective glass front and the rear tends to stand out and be on the outermost surface. Aluminum parts that surround it are not able to protect this section. Especially in the vulnerable edges.
This is evidenced by the many complaints 4 iPhone owners around the world who have broken the protective glass, especially on the back, just a fall from a place not too high.
The solution is to use the bumper, aka rubber protective casing or so-called 'condom mobile phones'. Apple even offers free original bumper for iPhone 4 owners who registered a cell phone, as one form of responsibility. Or if you do not intend to use the bumper, make sure you do not slam the iPhone 4 for any reason.
Another thing that change in the design is the placement of antennas. In the previous iPhone, the antenna is placed at the rear bottom of the phone, while now placed on the left side. Many suspect this must have been the cause of the problem at the time of the phone. Where are all of a sudden the signal reception quality will nge-drop or unstable.
When PULSE try it with one of the operator product, is hardly found in signal reception problems. Almost every conversation takes place smoothly. While Apple's own party think this is a cosmetic problem. Alias ​​problem that is not too large. How to you?
One more thing on the side of the design is the number of changes to the location of important buttons and slots. Volume keys for example, is now placed on the opposite side. Likewise with micro sim slot, from the top to the right phone.
Oh yes, by the way Micro SIM, follow these 4 iPhone 3G iPad. Namely using the SIM card-sized mini. Some operators reportedly already provides this micro size SIM card, but if you force yourself to use the old card, you can cut it manually with the tools already available in the market. The problem is, you can not use it again in a regular cell phone.

retina Display
Apple calls anyarnya with retinal display screen. The point is it with the screen size was taken, achieving a screen resolution 960 x 640 pixels 3.5 inches in the field of so-called equivalent with a maximum resolution of the retina of our eyes. We can not really mencocokannya, but certainly the phone screen is very bright and capable of displaying the 'innards' it well.

Both text and pictures can be displayed clearly. So it is with video. With the same video resolution (eg from Youtube), we feel the picture is much more dense in the iPhone4 than other phones, such as the BlackBerry Torch 9800.

We feel the iPhone screen is experiencing a lot of improvement. If the matter has been proven excellent display quality, then on the sensitivity, the iPhone 4 is the best compared to fellow iPhone.

Multitouch technology is very helpful when browsing the Internet and photos. But the virtual keyboard that gives comfort is still going to be a problem for them a physical keyboard enthusiast.

This section is the biggest upgrade we can get in an iPhone. Thanks to the IOS 4 is injected into the iPhone 4, then you can run multiple applications at once at one time. Such as you are playing games, and want to open the ebook, as well as email and sms from old friends. You do not need to cover all of it. Just press the HOME button twice, then you can see all the programs are still running. Press a long time and you can close them one by one.

But, If you are running old applications, such as you never buy software on the iPhone 3Gs, and then transfer it to iPhone 4, then you must update it to pause and resume its features can appear.

As information, this feature is an innate feature IOS 4. So, another iPhone device, such as the iPhone 3G can do it if it has been upgraded with this OS.

iTunes and App Store
If a year ago Indonesia account regional origin not given the freedom to access the iTunes Store, so this time can already loh. You can download the video podcasts, short video series and so on. We've tried to download some videos and I managed to Indonesia. But, still there is the but again ya. Indonesia has not been able to account for milk paid to download iTunes music content. Alias ​​is still limited to just download a free podcast.

Meanwhile, there is no problem on the App Store. As always, you can download the application whether or not paid, then install it on your iPhone. Still the same as the experience of the App Store on Apple's mobile-phone before.

Any fan of music must be familiar with the name iPod. Apple's music player device is famous for its homemade quality playback and display it. Ordinary Sepeerti iPhone include this feature as one of the top seed. Not much progress on the quality of the music than the iPhone 3Gs, but if you talk loud speaker, the speaker feels the iPhone 4 is slightly increased quality.

This phone is equipped with a complete connection. When we are in WiFi range, then use high-speed WiFi 801.11 b / g / n. If we are not in a hotspot, then the choice is to use the HSDPA network. To be sure you should always connect to the internet to be able to monitor all email and messenger.

The main drawback lies in the inability of these phones in the receive and send files via Bluetooth. Resignation? Do not dong! There are still applications that allow this to happen, but we have to buy it first in the App Store. The good news we can still listen to music via A2DP.

And what about the nature of its USB connection that requires synchronization with a specific device? Still does. But with his new iOS4, we no longer need to lose the music files when synchronized with a different computer devices. There is an ongoing backup process. But yes, if you want to add music was still a bit troublesome.

5 MP camera and HD video recorder
To date, the magnitude of the iPhone camera 5 megapixel camera resolution is the largest scale. But no nothing really if you compare it with the camera phones from other manufacturers that have reached 8 and even 10 megapixels. No one complained of shooting ability. Unfortunately mini professional settings.

One thing interesting is its ability to record HD video up to 720p. In line with the launch of HD TVs and HD video support uploading video on sites like Youtube, then this is a good sign. Unfortunately the memory required to store HD video is larger than most videos. Especially when the iPhone does not provide additional space for external memory.

For you who still need information about the existence of a video or photo editor at a cell phone, the iPhone 4 is already available features a video editor by doing trim. But for the photo, you need to download and install applications that are even better.

Video Call?
This technology has long existed in the mobile-first generation 3G phones. Even when the iPhone 4 comes with a feature front camera, video call service it was already reduced its popularity. At least for an iPhone, this is nothing new.

Specials on iPhone 4, video call service is an Internet-based network via WiFi. Similar to Skype. Apple reportedly still is working for this feature to run on 3G environments as well. But certainly with the device as small as a cell phone, then when we looked at other person's eyes on the screen, as if you look into the camera located at a narrow angle. Your face will be projected on the screen other person who was looking at their eyes.

Compare if you do video chat on the computer, when we see a person, then we do not see the camera, so it is seen by the other person, we are staring at another field.

Unfortunately this feature is still not able to be used in our iPhone 4, although the WiFi is active, and phone number are recorded. Is this a sign FaceTime can not be used in Indonesia, or need another iPhone 4 to be connected, or there are problems on the carrier (operator that we use).

Many factors must be considered when we review the battery. In the visible, the iPhone battery 4 is better than the iPhone 3Gs that have also had stopped in the table editor test PULSE. With normal usage, plus e-mail feed, messenger and use of the camera, this phone can last almost two days.

DesignAlmost nothing changed from the design. Size has not changed, smooth texture, glossy and minimal buttons. the touch screen remains as the primary means of interaction.
Back cover made berdisain convex solid plastered with the phone, to prevent us to open, view, let alone replace the battery.
SIM card slot using the hotswap system. To insert the SIM, you must first stab 'tray' driver's license by using the metal pin in the hole that has been provided.
As with the iPhone 3G, this phone is also equipped with only one 'back' button on the front. It lies with the D-pad touch screen phones other.
Although the same position, the function 'back' button of this experience as well as the addition of voice control. The trick, press the back button a long time about 1 minute without a removable, voice control until the screen. This is the first new thing that we can get on the phone.
Another key is that we can get the volume buttons and mute swich on the left, and the power button / screen lock on the top. Very minimalist is not it?
Besides the buttons, there are only two additional ports, namely port data at the lower end, and 3.5 mm audio port on the top.
There are interesting things, namely by disematkannya two speakers at the bottom of the funnel. Lie very close, with the flanking data port. This led to the spread of sound so it is not too good.
InterfaceNo one can deny the greatness of the iPhone as the best touch screen phone. Likewise we feel at 3Gs. The combination software interface, the screen surface material and the nature of his multitouch touch screen produces a nice impression when interacting with the screen.
Menggawangi TFT touch screen phone has a depth of 16.7 million colors, with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels (often referred to as a mobile widescreen). Naturally, if looks okay, because the file sizes are also made of up to 3.5 inches.
Just like the previous iPhone, the phone screen is also protected by anti-fingerprint coating and scratch-resistant. Things that had been feared by the touch screen mobile phone users. Unfortunately, such a layer is not applied on the back of the phone that in fact requires the same protection.
iPhone 3G using the software up to date. Starting from OS to software such as iTunes Store luggage, Apps Store, and so on. That is, we will find a number of developments, but not revolutionary.
MultimediaA number of features provided in the conical iPhone 3G multimedia capabilities. Makes sense, considering that Apple basically as pembesutnya is skilled in that field.
Similarly, in the iPhone 3Gs. The ability of an iPod will be retained. Display and acceleration similar to the iPod Touch which has been long outstanding. We can add music files in a format mp3, m4a mp2 and through a synchronization with your desktop iTunes (PC or Mac).
This time, the voice output iPod can be transferred via Bluetooth A2DP and a speaker phone built. A significant growth.
In addition, we will find a 3.2 megapixel camera. Higher than the iPhone 3G is only 2megapixel. However, the camera is still not equipped 3Gs flash. Perhaps for aesthetic reasons so that the camera lens is only given a few places in the corner.
In terms of quality, the camera iPhone 3G could be called mediocre. Color can indeed be recorded properly. But in a somewhat low-light conditions, the noise generated was plenty. In contrast, there was no problem for outdoor shooting with enough light.
The addition of performance also occurs in the ability to record video. Resolution can be increased by resolution of the screen. Interestingly these features can be integrated with the Youtube application.
When tested with the speed of HSDPA, 3G Youtube app can run smoothly. We compare mobile phones with similar capabilities, such as the BlackBerry APN operator, the result in the iPhone could run better.
Looks like this Youtube application to download the file first, and then presenting it to us, so that almost no words faltered.
ConnectivityThe development of the most anticipated by iPhone users long on the side of the connection. Some of the increase occurring in it. Starting from the increase of the 3G modem to 7.2 Mbps through HSDPA Bluetooth profile is updated.
In essence, this phone is equipped with means of connection with the latest specifications. Complete even. Besides HSDPA, no WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS receiver and USB connection.
Unfortunately the USB connection to the computer to go through iTunes. Sending music files, video to picture only one direction. That is, from computers to cell phones. It can not be otherwise.
Likewise, when we use the Bluetooth. But lucky there is a third-party applications that allow for this, mostly paid. And for you music lovers, the A2DP profile is added to the iPhone 3G is good news that no less important.
Application and InstallationNo office applications in the default package. And also found no official office mobile applications from Microsoft for Apple's iPhone OS. The way out for us who need support for the file type is by seeking third-party applications through the online store app Store.
Yes, the app store is the only legal way to add new applications, download and install it directly into the phone.
HardwareiPhone 3G provides the processor and RAM with a capacity greater data though. If the iPhone 3G is only equipped with ARM 11 412 MHz processor, a RAM 128, then the 3Gs currently holding an ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz, with 256 MB of RAM.
Meanwhile, with the lithium ion battery that bears the iPhone is able to survive long enough in standard usage. Occasional music, HSDPA, WiFi and GPS can spend power up to 2 days.
ConclusioniPhone 3G is a touch screen smart phone with the best and the excess on the multimedia side. Many interesting things we can get from this phone, ranging from design, an attractive touch screen until its properties are quite impressive OS users.
Design and characteristics for Apple to make this phone suitable for you who are looking for multimedia products and want to be different from the others. One barrier may be a matter of synchronization with the PC. On this side, it still requires several processes.

** STRENGTHS: design, multi-touch input method, browser, app store, iPod, A2DP, copy-paste, voice control, multiple email accounts, compass, 3D games, HSDPA
** LACK: Konektivitaas USB and Bluetooth are limited, do not push mail (default), install the application only melalyui iTunes or App Store.
