A couple days ago I wrote an article explaining why the iPhone 4 sucks. To be fair, I thought I’d write another article to give you several reasons to buy an iPhone 4.

It’s beautiful

You know it. It’s an absolutely beautiful product. It’s clean, shiny, and classy. You can’t argue about this.

It’s cool

You know it too. Owning an iPhone is the ultimate gadget. You gotta give il all away to Apple’s brilliant (evil?) marketing.

FaceTime

Sure the FaceTime concept is not new but it’s just plain awesome. I just did a 30 minute FaceTime conversation with my cousin in France. Seriously, have you ever done that on any other phone? No!

230,000+ apps

There are now over 230,000 apps in the App Store and thousands more are added each day. Whatever you want to do, chances are there’s an app for that.

Jailbreak

If you can’t find an app in the App Store, you will most likely find it in Cydia, the app store for jailbreak apps. I love my iPhone and I sure love my jailbreak. Check out all these cool jailbreak apps for iPhone. At the time I am writing this there is no  jailbreak for the iPhone 4 yet but it should be released in the  next few days.

5 MP camera + LED Flash + front-facing camera

Me and many others have been talking smack about the camera of the iPhone for the last 3 years. No more complaining now with the nice 5MP camera. Coupled with the LED flash and the front-facing camera, the iPhone can now match the “basic” features that all the other smartphones already have.

HD video recording

You can now record high definition 720p videos at 30fps. Not too bad, huh?

The screen

With the iPhone 4, Apple introduced a new Retina Display screen that boasts 4 times more pixels than the previous iPhone. The result: a crystal clear screen that can perfectly render the sharpest details.

It’s fast

With the new A4 processor and twice the RAM of the iPhone 3GS, the new iPhone 4 is fast fast fast.

Gyroscope

Along with 4 other sensors, (light, proximity, accelerometer, and compass), the gyroscope will bring the Wii experience to the iPhone. Expect some great games that will take full advantage of this new feature soon.

Price

If you’re a new AT&T customer, the iPhone is not that expensive. Starting at $199 for the 16GB, it will go up to $299 for the 32GB version with a 2-year contract.

Can you think of any other reason to buy an iPhone 4? If so, please let us know by leaving a comment.

    You really love your iPhone 4 Sebastien don’t you? 😀

  • Dave

    You mention that you can jailbreak iphone 4 in your article but as far as I am aware it cannot be done yet? or have i missed that?

  • Andy

    Did I miss the iPhone 4 jailbrake release?

  • Sorry but I should have mentioned a jailbreak for the iPhone 4 is not out yet.

  • iPhoNerd

    Now you made me to read all the comments before I make any comments lol. I was going to say “rubbish” for the Jailbreak part lol

  • Jeremy

    I agree with everything that you said except the camera. I have 2 iPhone 4s, one for my wife and one for me. We both previously owned 3GS. On our iPhone 4 cameras the rear facing camera takes very yellow pictures. I’m going to start a thread on this later to show the pics I have been getting. It’s funny because the front facing camera takes perfectly yellow free pics. Do you think this could be part of the adhesive problem we have been hearing about?

    On a side note I am very anxiously waiting for the jailbreak. I miss my apps like quick reply and my3g and mywi

    “I just did a 30 minute FaceTime conversation with my cousin in France. Seriously, have you ever done that on any other phone?”

    Ehm yep, since videocalling was introduced here in Sweden oh 2003…

  • Another reason to buy an iPhone – you are fundamentally insecure and your self worth is largely defined by how you feel you are “perceived” by others – hence the urge to get the latest and greatest – doesn’t matter that the iPhone isn’t a very good phone. Or that ATT will overcharge you for a fundamentally crappy network.

    But you WILL get all the attention from your fellow subway riders (till, atleast if you are in NYC, everyone and their grandmothers get one:)

  • Another great perk that comes along with getting an iPhone in general is that you inherit the massive community that makes the product what it is. Sure, I don’t mean to sound like a Linux community, but ask yourself who makes the app store what it really is? What community backs the product it uses no matter the default because they know their investment will pay off. As a 3GS user, I’m totally satisfied. Have not once said I wish the phone could do this. I have the patience with apple; as a result I’ll wait until the next major leap toward the iPhone advancement. All this to say, the community you’ll join that backs the product it buys is worth a lot more than looking for the perfect product. Why is the Linux community so successful?

    This is all BS
    Its beautiful: not really you just heard aplle say it was beautiful so you instantly convinced yourself it is

    It’s cool: why would I ever buy a product just so someone else would. Think I’m cool?

    Facetime: have fun only doing that on wifi

    230,000 plus apps: al scencored by apple

    Jailbreak: why should I have to modify my phone just to use it to its full potential?

    5 MP camera + led flash + front facing camera: nothing new

    HD video camera: nothing new

    The screen: can’t tell that its that because of its nice yellow tint

    Its fast: 1 ghz processors in phones aren’t new

    Gyroscope: this might be one of the few good things

    Price: I will pay whatever I have to to get the Best smartphone I can.

    Btw all of these “great new features” are rendered useless if you hood the damn thing like a human.

  • Nate

    lol sorry for all of the spelling errors and going so crazy anti-apple. It was early and I wrote the response on my phone.

  • notafan

    lol i think the iphone 4 is great. I havent had any issus with OE dropped call, or “yellow” screens…..the only thing that really erks me is the lack of available cases lol. The screen is wonderful, design is great. I can actually just throw in my pocket, the phone seems a hell of a lot faster on the network. I personally havent had any issues at all with at&t. Love the iphone, and eagerly awaiting jailbreak. and to all the people saying they shouldnt have to modify their phone to use to full potential, its not that big of a deal, hook up, click jailbreak, and done. i am not an apple fanboy and overall dont care about the rest of the product line, but the phone itself is great and does everything i need it to do, and fast.

  • Jeremy

    One big reason not to!! Look at the horrible yellow pictures my iPhone 4 takes!!

    I can’t believe anyone would say the iPhone 4 is NOT amazing. I used FaceTime, and it doesn’t matter if it’s only on wi-fi. It is sooo worth it! Oh, and another minor reason you should get it is, you can edit movies in it with iMovie. It is so useful and jailbreaking it is for ghetto people, who cares if it’s not out yet, and it DOES look awesome, and not because Apple said so, it is very thin, and it is just amazing holding it. So, in my opinion, most people are just exaggerating, the iPhone 4 is literally the best smart-phone ever and there is nothing similar to it.

    Apple Iphone 4 32gb for sale,interested buying,contact. i have digital cameras also.farooq09@hotmail.com

  • Charles

    Face Time???
    I have a N95 8GB and through Fring, I can use my front camera as webcam and doing video chatting with any other mobile phone using Fring. It even can do video chatting with a laptop too. Unlike iphone 4, it’s not limited to be used with wifi only, as long as you can make an internet connection via any method, you can use it. And Fring is absolutely free. Apparently apple has just using a “stone age” technology and make it feels like futuristic technology.
