Should you buy an iPhone 4?

1. You’re a screen fan

The new Apple phone’s screen is made of double-hard glass (30 times tougher than plastic) but it really shines with resolution, which is nearly as dense as the iPad’s.

2. With a power complex

With all this multitasking we’re about to see in iOS 4, you’ll want a bit of extra poke. Enter Apple’s own 1GHz A4 chip.

3. You’re a fashionista

You can hammer in nails with the iPhone 4 (please don’t). Its manly new heft and squared-off edges automatically make previous incarnations feel dated.

4. You want to drop a case size

Can’t live without a smartphone, but fed up of having the wrong sort of bulge in your trousers? At 9.3mm, this phone’s for you.

5. Oh, snap

Two extra megapixels, an LED flash and 720p video recording. Oh, and there’s FaceTime, Apple’s Wi-Fi only iPhone 4-to-iPhone 4 video calling app (FaceTime) via the front-facing cam.

5 reasons not to buy an iPhone 4:

1. You’ve just bought an iPad

And you can’t afford to shell out on yet another premium Apple product. On the other hand, that 3GS price drop’s starting to look appealing.

2. You’re a Twitter, not a Flickr

The 5MP cam and 720p video are great news for quality pics and vids, but if all you do is take pictures of funny signs to put on Twitter, stick with your 3GS.

3. You have ugly friends

Want to video chat. No? Us either, but Apple thinks you should be using FaceTime, not just voice time. Whatever...

4. You’ll lose it

iPhone, meet the gap between the sofa cushions. If you thought the lozengy form of the 3GS was good at getting lost, wait until your phone is under 10mm thick.

5. Umm...

Can't think of a fifth.
