    • iPhone 4 is going to rock among smartphones Mukundan :) Thanks for the comment dude :)

  1. I have been using a Blackberry, but would like to switch to an iPhone soon. I have been waiting for the technology to mature & it seems to be stable now. There is still an issue in the States with the provider (ATT) being the only one and everyone I know with an iPhone complains about problems with their service.

    Great article! Thanks!

    • this version has got lot of features and its all new in iPhone 4 Mark. As you saw there are lot of cool new features. Hope you gonna grab it soon :) Thanks for sharing your view Mark :)

  2. Iphone 4 seems to be an awesome machine. But will remain a dream for me ;) With all the features, the cost also has hiked. :D

    • Neeraj the cost is affordable :) basic model costs at $199. So you can have one and fulfill your dream :)

      • $199 price is with 3 year contract plans only. Without contract and unlocked iPhone 4 will easily burn a hole in your pocket worth $700-$800. The price is still unclear..

  3. Vinay, you are awesome in compiling the lists. Compiling 100plus list is not an easy task though IPhone has all these functions. By the way are you using the IPhone? Cuz someone who is not using can't compile such detailed list.

    • I'm not having iPhone Imran :( , Just thought about the iPhone 4 and did a good research with Sunil via Google and came up with this post :) :D
      Thanks for commenting :)

  4. That is really a great list mate. Im aware of only 29 features. Great exploration :) u simply rocked

    • if we have missed any feature please let us know Siddu :) anyways thanks for the comment :)

  5. Well done with this article – you've done well tl list a full 100 features. The iPhone 4 seems to be a big leap forward over the previous generations, although I don't think Apple had much choice due to the advances with the Android operating system and new handsets from companies like HTC, it's just a shame that they are so expensive. I wouldn't expect networks to give them away for free but the lifetime costs for an iPhone 4 are pretty high. It's also difficult for those that took the 3GS on a two-year contract at launch to upgrade.

    • I seriously accept your point here Chris. The cost of iPhone for lifetime is too high! But it has got very good features.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts Chris :)

  6. nice, looking forward to the iphone4..n ios upgrade. mostly tired of the same txt alerts, so looking forward in the change in that. great job wit the blog=)

  7. Many improvements was made to iPhone 4 in comparison to old models. You show a great list of the most interesting feauters, thanks!

    Yeah, it's a really great device!
    But the main problem is in his very expensive price (I mean unlocked one). If they in Apple decrease price at 2 times – they would get thousands of new users for sure! But such a desire is unreal :-(

  8. Wow, great SUPERB article! I shall definitely be purchasing an iPhone 4 at the weekend. :)
