Apple iPhone 4 Reviews

The Apple iPhone 4 has been a highly recommended device in recent months.  With its sharp displays and excellent video camera, this phone tops many others.  Longer battery life and a front-facing camera for video chats helps users feel a better sense of connection.

The Apple iPhone 4 has had its fair share of problems.  Although it technologically keeps up with other popular phones, many buyers have reported a problem with its reception.  Sometimes, when the user’s hand crosses the left side of the phone, signal quality lessens greatly and callers can lose reception altogether.

Apple tested the problem and originally claimed that faulty software was the problem.  The company stated that the phone displayed two more signal bars than it should have for reception availability.  In other words, the phone gave the impression that it was receiving better reception than it really was.

After testing, Apple found that faulty software was not the problem, nor was the AT&T network.  Due to this, most people do not recommend the iPhone 4 and they also believe their unfortunate circumstances should be remedied.  To temporarily relieve the problem, customers have found that placing a small piece of duct tape over the gap in the antenna area can do the trick.  Although it may look hideous, most people feel that it helps reception and that is more important than how the phone looks.

Some people also recommend using a very slim case to protect the reception area.  Reports indicate that customers have fewer dropped calls when they are using cases on the phone.  Other customers say that because of the cases, they have had no dropped calls whatsoever and would highly recommend this phone.

Other small problems that have been reported for the iPhone 4 include the SMS system.  Text messages that are sent are never reported received.  Other flaws include camera problems and lack of blackout screens when making calls.

Apple Ipod Choices

Ipods and other mp3 players are extremely popular options for playing anyone’s favorite tunes while working, exercising, or riding in the car.  With their multitude of features and capabilities, these disc-free devices make it convenient to enjoy music while performing a variety of tasks.  Apple Ipods come in a wide range of memory and storage options and can be found in most electronic stores.

The Ipod Touch is available in 8GB, 32GB, and 64GB packages.  Video calling as well as brilliant displays and voice calling make these Ipods very popular with every age group.  Capabilities include Bluetooth, Wi-fi, and Application storage.  Along with the ability to store movies, games, and music, and audiobooks, the Ipod Touch is priced accordingly at $200-$360 in most stores.  Depending on the memory capability that the customer chooses, packages may be available.  They may include accessories and sale items.

Apple’s Ipod Nano is a bit more basic than the Ipod Touch.  With smaller memory capabilities ranging from 8GB to 16GB, these devices are used for music playback by most buyers.  It also features a smaller screen and lighter body style, so it is ideal for travel and exercise options when watching movies may not be needed.  Many customer who are purchasing an Ipod for the first time consider this one because it begins at a reasonable $174.00 in stores and online.

The Ipod Classic is an excellent option which combines some of the features of the Nano, the technology of the Ipod Touch, and a huge memory capability.  With 160GB options, customers can take all of their media with them easily.  Featured for $228.00, this device holds up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video, and 25,000 photos.  Customers’ satisfaction ratings are high as they enjoy the full range of options on a slightly smaller screen.
