iPhone 4 phone was announced June 7, 2010 during the official World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC 2010). Apple is saying “This phone changes everything. Again.”, but does it really? We certainly think it does. Read on to find out more about this amazing new Apple phone.
iPhone 4 Features
Want to have a video chat with another iPhone 4 user? You can easily do that thanks to the FaceTime feature in iPhone 4. All you need to do is find your friend that you want to have a video chat with in the Contacts application, and tap on the FaceTime button to start a video call. If you’re already in a phone call with the person you want to have a video chat with, you can simply tap the FaceTime button on the iPhone 4 call screen. Your friend can either accept or deny the video call. FaceTime works in both portrait and landscape mode. You can also use either the front camera or the back camera of the iPhone 4 to have a video chat. It’s recommended that you use the front camera because the front camera has been fine tuned for FaceTime.
See the display screens of both the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 up there? The quality of the iPhone 4 is way better. The iPhone 4 has the sharpest, most vibrant, and highest screen resolution in the smartphone market according to Apple. The Retina display on the iPhone 4 uses IPS (in-plane switching) technology and has a 326 pixels per inch screen which explains the high resolution on the iPhone 4 display.
