What a Savvy iPhone Lover Has To Say About the Much Maligned iPhone 4

Jul 14, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Apple’s new iPhone 4 has been blasted by many, including Consumer Reports, which has come out with a recommendation not to buy it.

Today TechCrunch’s MG Siegler–and admitted fan of previous iPhone’s–tells why he loves the iPhone 4

 You can go to Siegler’s piece to read the reason’s he thinks the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone ever.

As for the reception/antenna controversy, here’s what he says, "Here’s my take on this (and while I’m no expert, this seems to be pretty common sense): Apple’s software update should alleviate some concern about the signal drop by being more accurate in the first place. But the signal drop when holding the phone is very real — again, just as it is on other devices like the iPhone 3GS. The fact that the iPhone 4 is the first phone with the antenna on the outside of the phone, I have to believe must exacerbate this issue. And this combination of software plus hardware issue is why we’re all talking about this for the first time.

"But at the end of the day, all that matters is this: does the device work? While that’s a more complicated question for me to answer than it should be because I happen to live in an area with notoriously bad AT&T reception, the answer is yes. In regular use (so, not holding the device a certain way to try and get it to fail) the iPhone 4 seems to perform the same with regard to data usage as the iPhone 3GS did. Without all the hubbub over the signal issue, I don’t think I would have noticed a problem (aside from day one when AT&T’s network was clearly getting slammed harder than usual)."


  1. Keep watching folks. Google is doubling share with each iteration of Android. Two more years, and a couple of more buggy iPhones from Apple and Google will be the leader in the mobile phone category. The operators love the cheaper OS. And users are happier with the price and options for service.

  2. I think that Apple by now should be able to have perfected the phone. But yet again we see massive flaws like with the signal

  3. Thank you for your help!

  4. Great reading, thank you

  5. Adding this info to my blog if thats ok dude.

  6. In related news, one of the women who had sex with Tiger Woods said he never talked about golf during sex. Although, he did keep his head down and his left arm straight.

  7. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you. store,best price,electronic,automotive

  8. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  9. Love this blog.
