AT&T iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 Review: How's it stack up now? - The Verge



Note: we wrote this with a tall spin of shift from Josh’s iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4S Review as good as we wrote it as if we was a vergester essay a examination on the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 in the stream market. I was starting to supplement some-more photos… yet we can’t put them in a whim demeanour similar to the Verge Crew can.. so we singular it for everybody :)  

In a universe where cellphone makers as good as alternative people have to all the time innovate it's a parsimonious locus where everybody is in a conflict for consumers, companies must constantly innovate for the income of the people. 

Released in Jun 2010, it's a single of the comparison phones still offered on the marketplace today. Heck, if we cruise about it, it's still a single of the bestselling phones on the market. Granted it was introduced again in Feb 2011 for Verizon, which positively helped to fuel the sale of it.

So how does it review to alternative phones on the marketplace right away which it's over a year old? Let's dive right in!


Introduced as an all new pattern with potion fronts as good as back, it was positively a step up from the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 3GS. The volume switch on the side is simply permitted due to the well-spoken prosaic side of the phone, as good as the dull separate buttons for the volumes have been simply inside of strech whilst regulating the phone.



When land the phone in my left hand, it's healthy to operate usually my left index finger to shift the volume as my finger tends to rest there. The recessed home symbol is the same classical symbol you'll find on all the prior models of the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone). 

and Yes: My phone has been good used.. as good as is rsther than ripped up. It’s not the most durable phone, yet cruise we dump it scarcely 3 or 4 times each day, it doesn’t have most vital blemishes alternative than a couple of nicks and scratches.  



Starting with accessible storage for music, apps as good as alternative things you'll find right away days we can get the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 in 8gb yet delay from Apple as good as the carriers. However, we might still be means to find the versions of the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 with 16gb as good as 32gb of storage on eBay. My phone is a 16gb chronicle as good as it tends to be sufficient for my “light” song living room (around 4gb) as good as around 2gb in Apps as good as app data.

Moving on, to a single of the some-more critical facilities of the phone, is the phone antenna. My phone is an AT&T Model so it has a GSM Antenna rope around the edge… as good as approbation the “death grip” can positively be seen here if we reason it which way.  But yes, the 3G rope for AT&T functions well, as good as my speeds have been satisfactory sufficient when used on AT&T's network.

The iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 has Apple's own A4 Processor, which was the initial phone to have Apple's own pattern for the thinly slice which helps to concentration on energy charge nonetheless still on condition which a absolute knowledge to consumers. Alongside the A4 Processor you'll find 512mb of RAM, the same which you'll find in the new iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4S, yet stand in what was in the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 3GS (256mb) .

Oh as good as a single some-more thing, the Retina arrangement shade is still a single of the most pleasing displays out of any phone on the market, usually suited by Apple with the subsequent era iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4S. It provides a 326 pixels per in. (which is some-more than any tellurian eye can see).


The camera sports a 5 megapixel behind camera (with flash) as good as a VGA Front camera, which yield an competent camera knowledge whilst “on the go”, postulated the front camera isn't good for most alternative than Facetime, or the hair check in the morning. The behind camera will jot down in 720p up to thirty frames a second with audio, which was a single of the initial phones to do so.

One of the reasons the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 camera is so good when compared to alternative phones with the same megapixel camera is due to the actuality the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 has a bigger sensor which lets some-more light in which formula in a improved pattern quality.

Unfortunately, there have been phones right away on the marketplace which yield a improved point-to-shoot knowledge than the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4, yet for a phone that's scarcely 2 years old, it's funny to cruise which it went scarcely unmatched for so long. (granted, it might be my fanboy-ism entrance out here.. yet we didn't cruise scarcely any phone ever kick it until recently)

Just a couple of shots we took with the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4′s camera. we cruise those have been my two favorite photos which we not long ago took.. yet once again we cruise it depends partly on what we take a print of as good as the settings. 

Reception / Call Quality


Wow is unequivocally the word to total up all of this. When it was introduced in 2010 as an all new receiver pattern there were huge expectations for it, as good as to be honest, it didn't live up to all of them. While we beheld poignant improvements over the 3GS's call peculiarity as good as accepting there was a vital emanate with the “antennagate” predicament where if we hold the dual bands during the bottom the bars would dump significantly.

Apple voiced a giveaway box module in Jul of 2010 which supposing a giveaway box to iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 owners who lifted concerns (this module lasted a couple of months yet is right away over) with the issue. we never gifted the genocide hold emanate with my phone in all the time I've had it (since Jun 2010) yet afterwards again I've regularly had a box on it solely for the singular moments it's been out for cleaning.

So yeah, as for download speeds… it's not as discerning as the newer 4S as good as alternative phones yet we still find my phone pulling things up faster than alternative phones on AT&T as good as alternative networks.. Though your network speeds might shift from segment to region. (Mine up here in Northwest Missouri is 3G yet my upload speeds have been around 1.5mb as good as download is around 1.1mbps which creates me sad) But in alternative civil areas we have decent speeds. Again, it depends on the backhaul of the network as good as the overload in the area on the towers. (sad actuality of life)



I will spasmodic dump calls on my iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4, yet it's around 80% AT&T's fault… which is usually something we put up with since I'm grandfathered in to the Unlimited plan.

Battery Life


Ah, the a single thing we instruct we could shift about my phone. Apple has finished pretty good with all of their phones with Battery Life as good as ensuring they have good energy conservation. we conduct to get around 5.5 hours of complicated operate out of it prior to it's time for me to block it up. (and that's articulate similar to difficult use, Texting, iPod on, complicated App usage, regulating Safari, Wi-Fi as good as Bluetooth on etc). Oh, as good as we additionally have the shade on full brightness.

Apple totes 7 hours of 3G speak time, fourteen hours of 2G speak time, up to 300 hours of standby time, 6 hours of internet operate on 3G or 10 hours on Wi-Fi. While my operate is good next what Apple says, I'm a single of the complicated users of my phone. It's regularly on as good as it's regularly by my side, all the time pulling for email, checking apps similar to Facebook or on Safari with an occasional phone call or so.

There has been days I've been up during 5am as good as managed to preserve my battery hold up until around 11:30pm which night, yet it took difficult refuge on both my partial as good as the phone's settings.

The iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4S essentially adds an additional hour of speak time, yet loses an hour of Wi-Fi browsing time, might be due to the A5 Chip inside, yet not long ago there have been reports of issues with distressing battery hold up due to presumably a place checking bug. Apple voiced on 11/2/11 which a repair for it would be entrance inside of a couple of weeks.



The iOS 5 refurbish brought with it a vast series of changes which, depending on your preferences have been a good thing.  Something critical to note: You won't find Siri on the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4.

I hold which Siri is a single of the usually facilities which sets the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4S as good as iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 detached (someone scold me if I'm wrong please!) Granted, Siri is a vital offered indicate to the 4S yet people seeking for a good phone instead of a good phone will do excellent yet it (trust me, I'm removing by usually excellent yet it.)

Also new with iOS 5 was the Notification Center – Easy entrance to all the notifications as good as appropriate to the right to reply/go to access. This is a large thing which we find utilitarian generally with the Weather widget. we find myself essentially checking the continue some-more with the widget. we incited off the batch a single in the options since we usually honestly don't follow the stocks.

 The software  brought tons of improvements to the phone, most unnoticeable until we unequivocally get in to it… yet Apple dubbed this release when iOS unequivocally went “PC Free”. This is since of iCloud as good as all the work the Apple Engineers have done. You no longer have to block up to a mechanism to sync your music, photos, documents, contacts as good as so forth.  Just spin on iCloud as good as bam, your things will be on a new device if we get a single as good as elect to revive from an iCloud backup.

I operate iCloud to sync my Calendar (well, what small is on it) as good as my Contacts. My contacts have been my hold up as good as if anything were to occur to that.. good I'd be hurting.

Also new is Wi-Fi syncing, which we do not use, so I'm fast starting to total it up. If your phone is plugged in as good as charging on the same Wi-Fi network your mechanism is on it'll sync over Wi-Fi. we cruise we might usually be means to select a single on if we wish to sync to iCloud or your iTunes, so it is unequivocally a welfare here if we wish it in the clouded cover or on your computer.

Another discerning note on iCloud, they give we 5gb of space for giveaway with some-more space accessible for purchase.  I did not comprehend how fast apps took up the space with iCloud as good as I've roughly ran out of space, yet we can select which apps get to operate iCloud's space as good as we can spin which off in the Settings.

Wrap up

So how does it all finish up? If you've got an iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 3GS or an additional phone from a prior era as good as you'll seeking to ascent to an additional phone here is what we recommend: Upgrade to the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4S if you're seeking to get an iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone).

If we don't thoughts being stranded with a phone that's roughly dual years aged for an additional dual or so years in a stipulate afterwards the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 is a good phone for 99$ with a new stipulate (mind you, it's usually 8gb) yet we COULD regularly find a used phone on eBay off contract. (or even if you're seeking to get a phone for a child or something, the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 has which neat voluptuous demeanour of the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4S with half the price)

Personally, I'm adhering it with my widely known iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 until the large A announces the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 5 (or whatever it is!). I'm not creation the ascent since in being even yet Apple updated the processor, gave it a little some-more battery as good as combined Siri, the iPhone (iphone 4 Vodaphone) 4 is still a good phone.
