iPod Touch 4G VS iPhone 4

Difference between iPhone 4 and iPod 4th Generation

So what’s the difference between Apple’s iPod Touch 4G and iPhone 4? This question is being asked over and over again, difference between iPod Touch and iPhone are getting lesser and lesser. In this generation of iPod Touch, it have gain Cameras both front and back, video capture capability, FaceTime, Multitasking, Retina Display and even Apple’s A4 Processor. What iPod Touch is missing is only the 3G connectivity and AGPS.

But is that really so?

No, even iPod Touch gained both front and back camera, but iPod Touch’s Back Camera is not iPhone 4’s 5Megapixel, rather it only have a camera that is capable of capturing 720p videos and less than 1 megapixel of still photo. There are no difference for the front facing camera, but iPod Touch do not have LED Flash light like iPhone 4.

From this video from letemsvetemapplem.eu, the video quality from iPhone and iPod Touch is very very close, to be honest, I feel that iPod Touch might have a better quality shot of video.

Chris Pirillo have done a series of test shoots of stills from both iPhone 4 and iPod Touch, here you can see that iPod Touch’s still is really lacking of detail compare to the one below which is taken by iPhone 4.

Next: Retina Display, iPod Touch VS iPhone 4

No need for me to explain more, clearly iPhone 4’s Screen is much more superior than iPod Touch 4’s, the viewing angle is much better on iPhone 4 compared to iPod Touch.

SPEED, iPod Touch 4th Generation VS iPhone 4

So how about the SPEED upgrades you get from iPod Touch’s A4 Processor? In this video we can see that although iPhone 4 have 2 times more RAM than iPad and iPod Touch/iPhone 3GS, but the speed of iPad is still faster than iPhone 4. What is funny is that iPhone 4 is not so much faster than iPod Touch. So more RAM on iPhone 4 does not make it faster, but only make it able to handle multi-tasking much better. So let’s see if iPad can handle multi-tasking as good as iPhone 4 when iOS 4.2 is available for iPad.



iPhone 3G not supported in Game Center

Steve Jobs have announced that Game Center is coming to us when iOS 4.1 launch, and we received news that Game Center have already went live as iOS 4.1 is going to launch today. But which iDevice can be used for Game Center? Apple have just confirm on its Game Center overview page that this social network for gaming will be available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 2nd Gen, 3rd Gen and 4th Gen.

Supported Devices for iOS 4.1 Game Center

No sight of iPhone 3G, original iPhone or original iPod. Seems like they won’t be support in this new social networking service. Although reviews have shown that iOS 4.1 will improve iPhone 3G’s performance, but seems like iPhone 3G still can’t keep up with Apple’s pace, and is slowly dying off…

Game Center

Game Center will allow you to find friends, add gaming friends, or even find random people to play game either to compete or help out each other in the game. Leaderboards and achievement are one of the few motivation that will push gamers to play on, and improve on their scores.

Death Grip increase Radiation Output, It happens for Google Nexus One, iPhone and Blackberry 9700

We all know that you can perform ‘Death Grip’ on your iPhone 4, and you reception will drop badly, and you might end up dropping calls. Although this issue is not really happening in countries with good reception like Singapore, but we all though ‘Death Grip’ will only affect reception. The video shown below shows that ‘Death Grip’ not only reduce your phone’s reception strength, it actually makes your phone emits more radiations and might be harmful to your health!

Why does it emits more radiation? When your phone sense that it is losing connection to its nearest cell tower, it will increase radio frequency output to try to get a better signal. It is true for most smartphone out there in the market.

Check out the video below, where the App will show you the radiation level when ‘Death Grip’ is applied on iPhone 4, Google Nexus One and Blackberry 9700.
