Walt Mossberg, Who is Probably the Nation’s Best-Known Journalist Writing About Personal Technology, Tells What He’s Learned About the Controversial iPhone4 After Using It in Real World Situations for Six Weeks

Jul 30, 2010  •  Post A Comment

If consumers can rely on anyone to tell them about the latest personal digital gadget, it’s probably well-known journalist Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal.

Mossberg now gives his opinion of the controversial iPhone4 after using it rigorously in real-life situations for six weeks.

His verdict? "I still believe it is, overall, the best device in its class, for reasons including its ultra high-resolution screen; easy, integrated video calling; slick software; strong battery life; a remarkably thin body; and a world-beating selection of 225,000 third-party apps.

"As for reception, I am sticking with my initial conclusions. I have found that in areas with average or strong AT&T coverage and capacity, the iPhone performs better than its predecessor and about as well as other AT&T smartphones I’ve recently tested. It still drops too many calls for my taste on AT&T’s heavily stressed network, which has experienced a stunning 5,000% rise in data traffic since the iPhone’s introduction in 2007. That data traffic reduces the network’s ability to handle voice calls."
