iPhone 4 vs other smartphones

Updated on September 25, 2012

A great way to evaluate mobile phones is to always study high cell phones coming from the major service providers. Such as AT&T, quite possibly the most recognizable choice is the Apple iPhone 4; Verizon wireless delivers the DROID Incredible; Sprint has the Evo 4G; and then T-Mobile exhibits the Google Nexus One (and is seen on AT&T).

Operating system

You will come across not many clear winners, with this type of rivalry. Simply take operating-systems, for example. Frequently things relies upon on the discussion of any time Android or probably iOS4 is much better. Cutting out childish thoughts, it's really a quite even factor, specifically using releases concerning multi-tasking in iOS4.

These three Google android mobiles normally run Android 2.x and in many cases could get Android 4.0 sooner or later. The Incredible and furthermore Evo 4G also enjoy the HTC Sense user interface all over Google's Android, which is certainly regularly proved to be the top Android "skin" provided. Seek for a lot more smartphone details from 2013 here: Best Smartphone 2013.


For instance the debate of operating-system, researching CPU’S is usually a battle of iPhone against the others. The iPhone 4 gains advantage from the same Apple A4 Processor also found in the iPad. It's thought of as quick, capable of taking good care of multimedia in conjunction with economical preserving of it's battery pack. The Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor found in the several other smartphones is acknowledged for having comparable features along with an exact speed (1GHz) just like the A4. Just like operating-system discovering, there isn't a apparent winner right here, too.


There after we will look into screen qualities. The Evo 4G looks like it's the winner, simply because of the 4.3-inch touch-screen. With that in mind it isn't really usually straightforward. The iPhone provides the smallest screen of them (at 3.5 inches); even so it features a resolution that may hit the opposite three smartphones down (960 x 640 pixels together with 326ppi resolution). Apple's "Retina Display," which it’s called might possibly conquer a greater displays given it generates graphics as well as text thus crystal clear plus outstanding. Additional info about screens combined with resolutions examine this site: Samsung Galaxy Smartphone.


Generally in the areas which the iPhone 4 does not rise immediately for the greatest ranks arises whenever looking into the network. AT&T is well-known to experience difficulties with dropped cell phone calls as well as fragile data connections relating to current iPhone customers, mainly at 3G bandwidth rates. AT&T also as of late concluded there data caps on every last new smartphone offers. The Evo 4G contains a observable advantage considering it may have accessibility of the better rapidly 4G networks; never the less, you can get just some 4G networks capable of getting visitors. Specific big downtown areas are able to profit by 4G gradually.

Storage area

Storage should be tricky to compare, because all people have various requirements. The iPhone comes in 16GB plus 32GB models although the additional three smartphones control microSD cards to produce space for the demands of the customer. The Incredible gives you 8GB of internal storage space and a microSD card slot. The Evo 4G has an 8GB microSD card built-in followed by the Nexus One has a 4GB card.


The vast majority of smartphones integrate Bluetooth combined with Wi-Fi, however the iPhone 4 can step forward substantially applying 802.11n Wi-Fi compatibility. However what is a great deal more intriguing is the opportunity for several smartphones to behave as Wi-Fi hotspots using rebroadcasting the 3G network impulses, as being a Wi-Fi signal to several different solutions and products which pertains to notebook computers plus tablets. The Evo 4G is going to be on the list of smartphones which may accomplish this today, and the Nexus One should have such a functionality together with the launch of Android 2.2 or more.


In the end, the iPhone is surely an obvious winner utilizing the camera. The one smartphone competent at recording HD video (720p resolution), let alone reviews that confirm this larger sensor pixels make it superb at delivering pictures, however the Incredible plus the Evo 4G develop an 8 megapixel camera instead of the iPhone 4's 5 megapixels. The iPhone along with the Evo 4G resemble the particular two smartphones in this comparison by using a front-facing camera created for video chat. It may not be however clear just what model provides advanced video chat capabilities, even though it can appear the Apple's FaceTime software is properly incorporated.

Life cycle of battery

The power supply is usually a unclear comparability factor given it could differ dependant upon purchaser perceptions. However, the iPhone 4 continues to be introduced using these remarkable battery specifications that could not be overlooked: Seven hours of 3G speak, Six hours of 3G discovering, Ten hours of Wi-Fi browsing, Ten hours of videos, Forty hours of music and also Three hundred hours on standby. In comparison, the Incredible is rated for five hours regarding talk-time plus 146 hours regarding on standby; the Nexus One is ranked for Seven hours talk-time, Two hundred and fifty hours standby time, Five hours of 3G On the net, Seven hours of movie play-back as well as Twenty hours of music play-back; the Evo 4G is rated with Six hours of talk-time.

With that in mind, it might be the iPhone 4's genuine battery pack won't be that incredible the way it seems. Probably none of the alternative 3 smartphones come close to these types of prices in real-world use, plus smartphones tend to be well known regarding smaller battery power simply because execute a lot.

Selling price

All of these mobile devices takes advantage of a base product which usually is only below $200 although received on-contract by using their particular suppliers. The Nexus One will likely be charged, at $179 on the T-Mobile network. The 32GB model of the iPhone 4 may very well be $299 by using an AT&T deal.
