Apple has yet again released a so-called improvement from a technical point of view of the early iPhone 3GS. These technical changes between the two phones are not significant for the average phone user, however, on the other hand it may stir up some excitement within the Apple fan group.

Taking into account the close competition, the iPhone 4 is not really the best from a quality-gadget-price point of view. There are other phones out there on the market, which bring better specs and to be honest even look better. An example would be the Motorola Droid X. Apple iPhone 4 comes with a 199$ price tag, which is the same with Droid X. Looking at all these specs and prices may give you an idea about the two phones, but when u see the Droid X, iPhone 4 seems outdated and shows a lack of design. 

I don’t understand why the Apple design crew decided to suddenly abandon the curvy and stylish approach for a more common straight edged design. Most of Apples’ iPods (both Touch and Nano) and previous iPhones came with the curvy stylish production design, which I think was more representative and appealing. The Apple iPod Touch generation 1 had this boxy design but then gen 2 and gen 3 came with a nice improved curvy design, whereas the evolution for the iPhone was exactly the other way round.
