  Apple IPhone 4G and the Android Smartphones

Apple iPhone 4 Black Smartphone 32GB (AT&T)

IPhoneApple has amazed the world with yet another feature-rich smartphone.  The 4th edition of the iconic iPhone has brought some major improvements to an already solid product.  A solid seller since it’s inception, the iPhone continues to include new features and tweaks to the user experience that leaves you speechless.  If you already have an iPhone you can probably stick with it until the next product release; however, if you are new to the Apple or smartphone worlds, you’ll definitely want to at least check it out.

The iPhone 4 features a large and high-quality touchscreen that makes it easy to get around on the phone.  Apps are easy to install and most are free to download and use through the iTunes App Store.  One of the most impressive features to be added to this new version is the second camera so that you can use video chat.  We’ve been waiting for the engineers at Cupertino to realize that iChat is worthless without this for years.

Smartphones With 4G IPhone

Out of the entire lineup of smartphones presently available on the world’s cellular phone market, the Apple iOS has the most mature marketplace for buying and downloading smartphone applications.  The variety of both free and commercial apps for the new iPhone remains top of the heap.  Almost any itch that you have when it comes to apps to make your life easier can be satisfied with just a few clicks, and if you also own an Apple laptop or desktop computer you can use the same iTunes interface to purchase apps for them, too.

Be sure to purchase the Apple Care package when you get this phone.  Sure it’s a touch expensive, but it’s one of the industry’s best warranties for electronic gadgets.  I’ve never had a problem getting an Apple device replaced that failed or that broke while under warranty.  Also, I would highly recommend that you get a bluetooth headset as the included earphones have a short cord and are not very loud.

Overall, the iPhone 4 is an excellent purchase for most people; however, some people with more business-centric usage habits may want to look elsewhere (Blackberry, Palm Pre, etc).  While iOS has applications that fill most users’ needs, some business-class professionals find the iPhone lacking some features required to interface with their enterprise computing environments (something which RIM has made Blackberry OS perfect for from the beginning).

I rate this phone a 9/10 simply because of the prohibitive pricing and the lack of available carriers, but if you have the money and already are a user of AT&T or Verizon (any possibly T-Mobile in the near future) its a solid purchase that won’t disappoint.  If you have kids who want an iPhone, buying the cheaper version with less storage space would probably be a good idea as it can save you significant sums of money while still getting them the slick phone that they want to show off to all of their friends.

  List of 4G Phones – Here Come the 4G Smartphones

Here they come.


While Sprint was the first, all of the major phone carriers in the United States are turning their 4G networks on and some rather fancy smarthpones are coming along in tow.


I thought this wold be a good time to cover what 4G phones are currently available or will be released in the next few months since the majority of phones released by each phone provider is most definitely not 4G. One thing you’ll notice is that every phone on this list is powered by Google’s Android operating system.


Sprint 4G Phones


HTC EVO 4G – This was the very first 4G phone launched. It still competes well with all the new smartphones just released – the only real complaint is that the battery life is a bit short.

HTC EVO Shift 4G – The cheapest 4G phone available at $149.99 with 2 year contract. It is one of two phones (the other being the Epic 4G) to feature a slide out keyboard.

Samsung Epic 4G – This phone is part of the Galaxy S series of phones by Samsung. It’s also starting to age a bit but still packs plenty of horsepower with it’s 1GHZ processor under the hood.


Verizon 4G Phones


Motorola Droid Bionic – The fastest phone you can get on Verizon and one of the most powerful of any smartphone on any provider. It has a 4.3″ screen, a dual core 1GHZ processor and 512 MB of RAM.

LG Revolution – This phone has a 4.3″ screen and a 1GHZ processor. It seems a little underequipped compared to some of the high end phones like the Bionic so I fully expect this phone to compete with the HTC EVO Shift 4G as a most budget friendly 4G phone though official pricing and availability have not yet been announced.

Samsung Inspiration – While the actual name of this phone is unknown, this is what the code name for the phone was so we’ll just go with that. Like all of the current Verizon 4G phones running Android, it sports a 4.3″ screen.

HTC Thunderbolt – The HTC Thunderbolt is pretty run of the mill with its 1 GHZ snapdragon processor, but its big selling point will likely be the 32GB Micro SD card included – most of the other phones only come with 16GB.


AT&T 4G Phones


Motorola Atrix – The most powerful smartphone out there, narrowly beating out the similarly equipped Motorola Droid Bionic for Verizon. Like the Bionic, it has a 1 GHZ dual core processor, but it also packs 1 GB of RAM while the Bionic only has 512 MB.


T-Mobile 4G Phones


myTouch 4G – This phone packs a 1GHZ process and a 3.8″ display.

HTC G2 – The slowest of all the 4G phones with a mere 800 mhz processor though it does have a respectable 512 MB of RAM.


As you can see you choices are still somewhat limited, but at least now you have choices when it comes to getting a 4G phones.

Of course, coverage is still limited and likely will be until 2013, but more and more markets will go live each month so if you don’t have 4G coverage yet, it’s coming (as long as you currently live in a 3G coverage area).
