Thread: Will you buy the iPhone 4???

  1. #21
    Should I assume that if iOS4 is JB that the new iPhone 4 will be JB'able too?

    Voted yes, but I'll likely wait until I see some benchmarks of the iphone and the 1GHz snapdragon android phones.

    Android 2.1 with a 1Ghz snapdragon is slow and laggy from the reviews I've read. It's just a resource hog from what I can tell. Android 2.2 is supposed to be more efficient.. so we'll have to wait and see. The A4 SoC however is MUCH more efficient than the snapdragon and the iOS is much smoother than any Android UI or modded Sense UI.

    I'll wait for the iphone 5 because my att upgrade will be right about that time.

    not enough new features to want me buy the new iPhone 4,, I'll wait until the iPhone5, in the meantime the EVO 4G running 2.2 looks really good... I gave it a test drive today and all I can say is FAST and Smooth.

    Like I mentioned in another thread. You can't really do benchmarks on this. For one Android is built for different hardware in mind. The iOS is built for each piece iPhone model specifically. Meaning that the iOS will run better because it was built for that exact chip. Android was built for multiple chips.

    The OS determines the benchmarks for these pretty much. If the Android version was really stripped of all excess code for other devices and then very finely tuned specifically for the snapdragon, taking all other hardware code out, then it would run very fast.

    The same applies to OSX. Apple builds it for their hardware and their hardware only. The hardware they decide to put in all Apple products. Hackintoshes need some tweaking to run properly.

    in my department, that's called been a lazy developer... not been able to write a code that will run according to the hardware is put on and with no hardware restrictions...

    But may I ask you all, what is the reason you want to buy iphone 4??

    Well for me its just because it looks awesome, sxy a lil xP

    But when I upgrade to IOS 4 I might change my mind of getting an iphone 4 soon...

    I have not voted just because I'm not sure yet if I am gonna get it. I own a 3GS at present and have got it replaced recently because of some network issues. So practically my 3GS is brand new.

    On top, to get the new iPhone, I have to pay at least twice as much as I am paying at the moment. I am on a sim only iPhone tariff which can be upgraded any time to get a phone, so I am holding on to that.

    Video calling is not new for us in the UK, so I am not too excited about the feature as it will not work without wifi anyway. and I have hardly seen anybody using video calling even if they have a phone which is capable of doing so. In real life I don't see much use of that FaceTime option.

    I am also waiting to see how iOS 4 works like on the 3GS, because most of the features that Mr. Jobs highlighted in the WWDC is down to the OS more than the hardware.

    I'm sure that the digital zoom and iMovie will be available for 3GS devices as well and not to mention the iBooks as well. Hopefully Apple has improved the picture compression algorithm for the camera app. It may not be able to take pics as 5MP camera but I am happy with the pic quality that 3GS captures during day light and the video quality ain't bad as well. I just want to see the difference once iPhone 4 comes out and then decide if upgrading for another 18 months for that device will be worth the money I am gonna spend.

    I would love to know the answer to this as well.

    It looks like the devs have already been able to JB iOS4, but does anyone know if this means we'll be able to JB the iPhone 4 as soon as it's shipped? Or does this mean we are just able to JB 3G's and 3GS's running iOS4 (and not the iPhone 4 yet)?

    I'm trying to decide if I'm going to buy the new iPhone 4 as soon as its available and whether or not we'll be able to JB it will make the difference for me.


    Does anyone know at this point?


    Thanks~

    I feel about the same way but I have an iPhone 3g though and it is quite sluggish for me now so I might have to bite the bullet and pre order hoping Apple had made a great product.

    Yep! End of July with Telus. Gonna buy it on no contract, then gonna get a micro sim and use it. Possibly even an iPad plan and then just get a VoIP app to call. Is there any actually designated micro-sim plans for a phone? Just wondering.

    Assuming Iphone 4 keeps the CURRENT BootROM, then YES u will be able to JB it on iOS 4......However, IF (for some reason), Apple added some security features to the BootROM or even updated to a newish BootROM. Then the chances of a JB on Iphone 4 will be waited on......So to answer the question about "Can we JB an Iphone4"......We will NOT know for sure until we put our hands on an Iphone 4.
