Multi-tasking for a long time now with jailbreak.
3GS camera work faster?
3GS camera zoomable?
Folders? Had for a long time with jailbreak.

Must wait until My3G is ready for OS4. Let's Skype and other apps work on 3G when chickensh*t Apple has blocked 3G usage due to Assholian AT&T network. Will still need to jailbreak.

Unlike AT&T, Singtel is legit... they don't sell me a gig of bandwidth, then block apps because they actually use that bandwidth.

Most definitely NOT AMOLED. That is a Samsung technology not the same Retina Display in the iPhone 4g.

See comparison here: http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/24/ipho ... +(Engadget)


Retina Display has approx 5% greater resolution, but 30% more power draw. AMOLED has wider viewing angle and better contrast...depends who you believe!

So is Version 4 doomed, now the antenna problem has been tested! I was thinking of buying, though not any longer! what crap! :( I'm so cheesed off, the last 20 years with computers, though we cannot do without, these days, hooked line and sinker.

We need a revolution in the industry it appears to have lost direction or is just slow implementing anything significant. What's with all the 3D Lcd's too, what a load of gimmicks, nothing new at all and is there that many 3D films out to justify a purchase :roll: Dick heads!

These smart phones are quite anti social if you ask me! Though I'm blind has a bat and have difficulty reading them even with glasses on these days, so I guess my 10 inch ASUS was as good as it gets!

They will have to come up with a solution, as it is very damaging to their brand name, maybe a recall !

people who were told the glass is scratchproof, believed it and thinks the rest of the phone is nigh indestructible.

...in any case, apple decided to give away the previously-30USB bumpers to solve the "The iPhone4 Call Death Grip"
