iPhone 4 Review Roundup

The iPhone 4 has already been torn apart by iFixit thanks to UPS or FedEx delivering some iPhone 4’s a couple of days early. Reviews of the iPhone 4 are now online.

Out of all the reviews we noticed the call dropping problem hadn’t totally gone away. All Things D said that the phones biggest downfall was with the AT&T network and even recommended carrying a second phone with you on another network if you wanted an iPhone but needed to make calls more than using data.

The iPhone 4 review at USA Today concludes…

Cutting through the hype, Apple has given longtime diehards, and first-time iPhone owners, plenty to cheer about.

Engadget comments on the battery life as being excellent…

The battery life on the iPhone 4 has been outstanding thus far, exceeding our expectations for longevity during testing. We’ve only had a short time to use the phone, but in the week or so we’ve been carrying the device as our main phone, we’ve had pretty amazing results under normal to heavy use.

but also says the dropped call issue is still there although not as bad as the 3GS…

The big question is obviously whether or not this fixes or helps with the constant dropped calls iPhone users on AT&T’s network have gotten used to. Well in our testing, we had far, far fewer dropped calls than we experienced on our 3GS. Let’s just say that again: yes, the iPhone 4 does seem to alleviate the dropped call issue. It wasn’t perfect, and we had some connection issues in downtown New York City in particular, though it’s tough to say if it was the fault of our phone, the cluster of buildings we were near, or the person we were speaking to, who was on a 3GS in the same location.

Overall the reviews are impressive though. Check them out at the links below. We will also be picking up an iPhone 4 tomorrow and will get testing straight away to see what it’s all about.
