Well despite the obvious that the iPhone 4G is down right awesome, here are the top 10 reason I want the new iPhone 4G. I would say NEED, but there are people in the world that are starving. Until that NEED is met, I just want (selfishly and Americanly, want).
10. The iPhone 3GS battery sucks. The iPhone 4G battery won’t suck (as bad!)
The new iPhone 4G battery is said to last between 6-7 hours. My 3GS battery dies more often then I would like to admit, it is no where near the 6-7 hour range of the 4G! Apple has shrunk the guts and enlarged the battery for a longer life and more Words with Friends playtime (okay, I made that up.). 40% more talk time? Yes, please.
9. Multi-Tasking for ADD Me
The iPhone 4G will let you quickly switch between applications. My ADD will love this.
8. Retina Display (Nice Fancy Word, Apple)
The retina display is the highest resolution ever built into a phone. You’ll notice less image distrotion due to the 960 by 640 resolution on the LCD screen. (that is 4x as many pixels as the iPhone 3GS!). See the right image – more pixels equals smoother picture.
7. Skinny – What Girl Doesn’t Want Something Thinner?
Apple put the iPhone on a diet. 24% thinner than current iPhone and only 9.3mm thick, yep, the iPhone got skinny. You know what else this means? There will be a whole new line of covers for the 4G – you won’t be able to use your 3G or 3GS covers on the new baby.
6. Facetime – the New Video Chat App
Skype, did you hear this? Apple has a new video chat app called Facetime. You will be able to chat utilizing the front and rear facing cameras! Yes, you read that right. The new 4G will have 2 cameras, front and back.
5. HD Video Recordings That You Can Edit From Your 4G
Wow. HD video recording and iMovie for editing videos will be available on the new iPhone. So now your crappy YouTube videos can have music and cute intros, all videoed, edited and uploaded from your mobile device!
4. Vamped up Camera with a Zoom, Focus and Flash!
The 4G will have a 5MP camera with 5x zoom, tap to focus and LED flash. My hippsmatic app will LOVE this. More and more, though I love my Canon, I use my iPhone since it’s always on me (and doesn’t weigh 10 lbs).
3. The iPhone 4G is SO Pretty
The new 4G is sleek. The iPhone’s edges are not so rounded creating a new look – distinguishing itself from the previous generations. The new iPhone’s case is stainless steel and comes in black and white (still no pink).
Did I mention the custom glass Apple created? It’s 30x harder than plastic and is used on the front and back of the phone. So maybe we won’t see as many of those broken iPhone screens as we did with the 3rd generation phones.
(ps, if your iPhone screen glass does break, check Craigs List – often times you can get the screen repaired for under $100)
2. Single Unified Inbox – YES Please
I currently have 5 email accounts setup on my iPhone 3GS. With the iPhone 4G, I’ll be able to view all emails in 1 unified inbox.
1. ENVY – I KNOW I Will Be Drooling Over Other’s 4G iPhones
Sadly, unless I can talk the baby daddy into opening another line – I’ll have to impatiently hold on the 4G. We’ll see how long my patience will last. Until then, i’ll mock up photos of my kid into the 4G. It doesn’t hurt to pretend.
