So… what is so special about iPhone 4 that it can attract so many people to queue outside of store just to get it? What is so good in it? I’m sure you all have seen lots of reviews, but I think the review of Andy Ihnatko is one of the most honest and good.

iPhone 4 Best Smart Phone in Image and Video Quality!

Looks like Steve Jobs is right again on the Mega Pixel chase in smartphone industry. During WWDC 10, Steve Jobs announced his new creation – iPhone 4, with just 5mega pixel camera rather than up-coming standard of 8-mega pixel for smartphone. He told us that Image quality is not just about mega pixel, but about lens, camera engine and also low light captures. iPhone 4 definitely improved greatly on low light photos, with the better lens and LED flash.

So, to prove that Apple is right, MacWorld conducted a series of tests comparing iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, Droid X, HTC EVO 4G, Samsung Galaxy, and basic point-and-shoot camera from Samsung and Sony. For Video Flip Video M2120 was thrown in as the only dedicated video device.

Image Ranking

Result show us that iPhone 4 is just behind the 2 point-and-shoot camera, and tops Mobile Phones in their image quality. This is just simply impressive as iPhone 4 is now the best mobile camera you can get, although most other phones have more mega-pixel capable camera, but they can’t match the quality that iPhone 4 is giving, especially in low light!

Video Ranking

If MacWorld did not add Flip Camera, iPhone 4 will be topping the chart, even for the point-and-shoot cameras from Samsung and Sony, yes it is that good. Even for the dedicated video device, The Flip, is it only slightly better than our multi-purpose iPhone 4. This should be due to the reason that iPhone 4 can shoot up to 720p video at 30FPS, which most phones can’t achieve at this point of time. But we have to say that audio quality in the iPhone 4 is still lagging behind others like Droid X and Samsung Galaxy.

Conclusion

Like you might have hear a couple of times, “the best camera is the camera that is always with you“, indeed iPhone 4 is the best camera in the smartphone market and it is also the camera that will always be with you. Making iPhone 4 the best of best camera you can get for now. [MacWorld]


iPhone 4 with Gyroscope Makes Gaming on iPhone much better

One problem with iPhone Gaming is that there are no physical buttons, thus movement controls are very hard to achieve, even if you can move, you often have problem moving your character accurately. In my view, it really make me feel that some of the First Person Shooting Games and RPG Game really tiring to play.

But with the announcement of iPhone 4, Gaming will be even more interesting now, as they will be including Gyroscope inside. So what is Gyroscope?

gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of conversation of angular momentum. A mechanical gyroscope is essentially a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation.

So what can it actually do? It can track your movement of the device, by more axis, so you can twist and turn like you are looking from the screen, and the game will move according to your movement… Like it is really moving.

It is very hard to imagine, check out the video below. It is a game call gun range which is done up by ngmoco, making use of the gyroscope.. and you will understand how powerful this will be in gaming… [Techcrunch]
