The moment millions have been waiting for is finally here, the iPhone 4 has come to Verizon. This is a review of the Verizon iPhone 4, or CDMA iPhone 4 as some people are calling it. Not surprisingly, it looks identical to the previous version of the iPhone 4.
A quick rundown of the specs for those of you who don't currently own one yet, this device has an ultra-high resolution Retina display, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash for Facetime, HD video recording, Apple's A4 chip, 3-axis gyro, and of course, a solid and sleek glass body design with stainless steel covering the sides. Some of the issues new customers may have with this phone are with the glass material actually. I know plenty of people with the iPhone 4 that have a hard time keeping this phone from falling. Since the glass surface is so smooth and sleek, it'll slide off just about any surface, so I recommend cases and screen protectors should be purchased as soon as you get your device. Zagg and Amzer Screen protectors are the best from experience, since when you put them on, you can't tell the difference between the glass-material of the iPhone 4 or the screen protector.
Now lets compare this to AT&T's version of the iPhone 4. Although both devices look almost entirely identical, there are a few subtle differences between the Verizon and AT&T iPhone 4. Some of the buttons and ports had to be moved slightly to accommodate a CDMA chip to operate on Verizon's network. The biggest physical change to was the mute switch and volume controls which had to be moved further from down from the edge and the slot for the sims card was removed.
In addition, notches for the antenna and the 3.5 millimeter jack have been moved as well, which presents an interesting dilemma when attempting to use cases with precise cutouts made for AT&T's version of the iPhone 4. Verizon's iPhone 4 also doesn't fix antenna issues from the previous model, so, even though the case selection may not be as diverse as the previous model, I still recommend you purchase a case or bumper to prevent any issues with the antenna. The iPhone 4 will be available on the Verizon Wireless network on February 10 for $199.99 for the 16GB model and $299.99 for the 32GB model with a new two year customer agreement.
