While we don't normally like to throw stones, especially at the competition which pretty much decimated our OS marketshare, who can resist pointing out some of the problems with the new iPhone 4? Sure, when mass-launching such a complicated device, issues are bound to pop up and no doubt 'quality control' is a tough thing--heck Microsoft lost a billion dollars on the Xbox RROD. Holla.
But here are the major ones for the iPhone 4, most of which can be expounded upon by our sister site TiPB.com:
- Reception: holding the phone in the wrong way absolutely kills voice/data reception, see video above and this Gizmodo post
- Yellow splotches on the screen, which may be temporary
- So-call Gorilla Glass is not so tough after all
Will Microsoft and its partners have the similar issues when launching this fall? Lets hope not.
