"...there's no doubt that iPhone 4 is a hugely impressive smartphone. It corrects key flaws in the previous model – particularly the battery life – and is one of the most user-friendly handsets when it comes to shooting hi-res video. The screen also sets new standards for smartphones."

"Call quality too has been improved. The iPhone 4 seems louder, less wishy washy and clearer than Apple’s earlier efforts. You could pin that improvement on its inclusion of a secondary mic for noise cancellation, but it still struggled a little as we made a call from a hectic train station."

"The iPhone has almost as many pixels into a screen a quarter of the size. Pictures are full of details while screen text has never looked this good. In fact, you can read a webpage while fully zoomed out – if your eyesight's good enough."

"Everything is more crisp. I tap out a message and the new keyboard noises make the old 3GS keyboard noises seem muddy. The speakers themselves are more clear as well, but a little softer."

"This time around, Apple decided to make the single home button feel more springy than what we experienced previously. In fact, this actually applies to all of the physical hardware buttons found on the phone as every single one of them has that solid tactile feel."

"Is it better than the previous iPhone 3GS? Yes - by a country mile. Is it better than the HTC Desire? In some ways yes, in some ways no... the iPhone 4 hits higher points but thanks to the reception issue hits lower points too. Essentially it comes down to a straight choice: are you interested in th..."

"We can't overstate how high-end the design of the iPhone 4 is. The 3GS now feels cheap and chubby by comparison, and even a phone like the HTC Droid Incredible -- which just came out -- seems last-generation."

"Despite antenna issues, Apple's iPhone 4 is definitely the best iPhone yet. Its superb design, outstanding display and excellent camera make it an ideal upgrade for owners of older Apple handsets…"

"...those who don't mind covering the antenna with a rubber bumper or case will buy a very capable smartphone. It doesn't multitask like a BlackBerry and it isn't customisable like an Android, but the iPhone is slick, fast and supported by the largest of the applications stores. Just remember to take..."

"It just seems some features will be forever missing. The iPhone’s memory isn’t expandable and you can’t use the thing as an external drive (this also means that files are only transferred via iTunes, again)."

More About Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless was formed in 2000, as a merger between GTE Wireless and Bell Atlantic. It’s currently the second largest mobile service provider in the US, coming in just behind AT&T with over 98 million subscribers.

Verizon has a proud history of firsts in the US – it was the first US company to launch a wireless high-speed broadband 3G network, and this has extended to being the first to build a large-scale 4G LTE network, which was launched in late 2010.

Since its inception, Verizon has invested more than $80 billion to increase the coverage and capacity of its nationwide network, and it seems to be paying off; it’s widely claimed that the company have the best network in the US. There’s no arguing that Verizon’s network coverage is extensive (and reportedly fast). Its LTE network is undeniably its biggest asset; it’s currently available in over 250 more markets than closest rival AT&T’s 4G offerings and is America’s largest 4G LTE network, being accessible to around 89% of the US population. While AT&T uses combined LTE and HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul to layer its ‘4G’ network, Verizon’s 4G LTE outpaces HSPA+ significantly, so may be a favourable option for customers in major metropolitan areas looking to take advantage of their 4G capable devices.

Verizon also have a reputation for great coverage in rural areas, and have roaming agreements with other carriers for the few areas of the US that its network doesn’t reach.

What separates Verizon from the other major carriers in terms of plans, is the introduction of Share Everything Plans as its exclusive contract-based offer. While the company still offers prepaid and pay-as-you-go plans, they’ve switched their post-paid focus to data usage, and have begun to cater to customers, and in particular families, who own multiple devices. Share Everything Plans include unlimited phone calls and texting, and start at $90 per month for one smartphone and 1GB of data. Prices increase based on the number and type of devices included in the plan and the amount of data required. Verizon has provided plan options for people who own several devices (e.g. a smartphone and a tablet) or families looking to pool costs and save money rather than forking out for multiple plans. However, for customers who aren’t big talkers or texters, these plans will offer considerably less value.

Verizon is a CDMA carrier, but does offer dual CDMA/GSM handsets, meaning international coverage is an option if you have a dual phone, and Verizon offer voice and data services in more than 200 destinations globally. However, for frequent travellers, a GSM carrier may prove to be more economical and convenient.

The company also has a good reputation for customer service, although still lags behind T-Mobile’s glowing reviews. Verizon operates more than 1900 retail stores across the country, and has dedicated live chat and telephone support 24/7.

The main downside to Verizon is that the company’s plans are usually a little pricier than those of the other major carriers. However, some customers will feel that this is a worthwhile trade-off in order to access what has been awarded the best network in the US, with extensive coverage and impressive data speeds.

Verizon Wireless’ Network Specs:

  • Technology: CDMA
  • 2G Bandwidths (IS-95, 1x, EV-DO): 800/1900MHz
  • 3G Bandwidths (EV-DO): 800/1900MHz
  • 4G Bandwidths (LTE): 700MHz
