iPhone 4: To Buy or Not to Buy?
When the iPhone was first launched in 2007, it easily outsmarted all its rivals. But now the list of its critics is growing as many feel that its price is extortionate and it suffers from many technological limitations. Here are Top 5 reasons to buy (and not buy) the iPhone.

The much-hyped and the much-awaited iPhone 4 is here with a hell lot of features and also with a lot of criticism.

While the gadgets freaks can't resist its charm, the list of its critics is also growing.

When the iPhone was first launched in 2007, it easily outsmarted all its rivals. But now, as The Telegraph says, “The handset is a triumph of marketing over functionality”. Tell this to a die-hard iPhone fan and chances are that he can get pretty nasty with you. It is often said that you can negotiate with a terrorist but not with an Apple product user.

So is the newest iPhone overrated or is it still way ahead of its counterparts from Samsung, HTC, Nokia and BlackBerry?

Here are top 5 reasons to buy and to not to buy the iPhone 4. Decide yourself what outweighs the other.
Reasons to Buy the iPhone 4

It's beautiful and cool. It's bold, sleek and classy; an absolute pleasure to hold in the hand. There are no two ways about it.

The revolutionary features like FaceTime, Retina Eye, HD recording and editing, etc. are absolute killers.

23000+ apps for the phone are available in the App Store and thousands are being added each day. Whatever's there in your mind, chances are that you will be able to find an app related to that.

This baby is powerful. With the new A4 processor and double the RAM of iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4 is lot faster. It is often said that iPhone 4 is as powerful as the supercomputers of the 80s.

Thanks the new Retina Display technology which gives four times more pixels than iPhone 4's ancestor, you a get a crystal clear screen that can perfectly render the sharpest details.
Reasons to not Buy the iPhone 4

The phone is way too expensive. Extortionate is the word used by its critics. Buy the best-in-its-range BlackBerry or Android handset and chances are that you'll end up paying a lot less.

The iPhone 4's battery doesn't last for very long. Yes, the battery life of iPhone 4 has been reviewed to be terrible by users. Many HTC phones are brilliant when it comes to battery performance.

Other competitors of iPhone have been able to install 8 and even 12 mega pixel cameras in their devices but iPhone 4 has just 5 MP to offer!

Owners of the iPhone 3GS won't miss much. Your iPhone will be able to fully enjoy version 4.0 of the iOS, the biggest benefit of which is multitasking, though you'll miss out on FaceTime.

Apple's hot new iPhone video calling feature, Face Time, comes with limited applicability. The other person has to have a Wi-Fi connection and must be a user of the same application. This limits the applicability of it against global service providers like Skype. (
