“There’s nothing subtle about the iPhone 4,” Andy Ihnatko writes for The Chicago Sun-Times. “From the styling to the upgraded software to the new hardware to the new edition of the operating system, this is less of an update and more of a rebirth.”
“I’m less impressed by the iPhone 4’s higher display resolution than I am by its superior contrast ratio, which offers 5 ounces of wow per pixel,” Ihnatko writes. “Even when I freeze-frame a movie like ‘Star Trek’ or ‘Up,’ the effect is eerily like looking at a large-format transparency on a light table.”
Ihnatko writes, “And the iPhone takes the best pictures of any phone I’ve ever tried. Not by a subtle margin, either.”
“Log in to Suntimes.com on Monday for my full, detailed review with the iPhone’s full pros and cons… including ambitious video and photo galleries comparing the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 3GS, two Android phones, and a couple of ‘real’ cameras and camcorders,” Ihnatko writes.
Until Monday, Ihnatko’s mini-review – written on the iPhone 4 via a Bluetooth keyboard – is here.
