Here's a quick 10-minute video walkthrough of everything you need to know about new Apple iPhone 4:

When the iPhone 4 was introduced at the WWDC, Apple especially noted the capabilities of the device, putting emphasis on its camera. The company said that, even though the iPhone 4 had only 5 megapixels, while 8 megapixels was beginning to be the norm for the latest smartphones, the iPhone 4 would have a far superior performance thanks to some special features that go far beyond the simple megapixel count.
Now the iPhone 4 is finally on the market, and so are samples of the new Droid X from Motoralla introduced on Wednesday. This made camera tests possible and this is what Macworld did in their series of tests aimed to compare 4 devices: the iPhone 4, it’s predecessor 3GS, the Droid X, the HTC EVO 4G, Samsung HZ35W and Galaxy, as well as basic Sony and Samsung point-and-shoot cameras. For the video test, the devices were also compared to the Flip Video M2120.
One of the main iPhone 4’s innovations is FaceTime, a new video calling feature. Unfortunately, at the moment it is only limited to calls from one iPhone 4 to another, and it makes it rather challenging for people to try it out, since not all of them know other iPhone 4 users.
Apple has suggested a solution: a new testing and support hotline at 1-888-FACETIME. Before starting a FaceTime session with a representative from Apple, callers will be asked a couple of questions about their new phone. Then they can get more information about the new feature, ask some questions and test FaceTime.
The hotline currently works from 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. Central Time.
The problem of signal loss with the iPhone 4 is still on, and users have begun to address the company itself for more information. Is it a hardware or software problem? What is being done to fix it? Steve Jobs is very laconic about it: yes, the problem is there but this is a “non-issue” and you should just avoid holding it that way.
Sounds incredible, but there it is, Apple’s official statement.

If your iPhone 4 is pre-ordered – congratulations to you! You will be probably getting it very very soon. However, if you didn’t preorder, you’ll have to wait 6 more days, till June 29, to buy your iPhone at AT&T.
It’s no wonder that the date has been delayed, what with the mess the pre-ordering system was in and the fact that all the devices were sold out in less than one day. The pre-order sales of the iPhone 4 began on June 15 and they were 10 times as high as those for the iPhone 3GS last year on its first day. The company reports that they are happy to see the excitement around the new device and they are trying to help as many buyers as quickly as possible. As it was announced last week, the priority is to fulfill the pre-orders first.
AT&T is now in the middle of delivering iPhone 4 to those who preordered it on June 15. Here are some guidelines for the buyers getting iPhone 4 from AT&T:
One of iPhone 4 users received the device earlier than expected. Thanks to delivery service. Here is a video:
Here is an interesting video, that compares two iPhone 3G firmwares - 4.0 and 3.1.3. The recently announced iOS 4 seems to be much slower.
Left: iPhone 3G running iOS 4.0 (8A293, upgraded as restore, without final restore from backup)
Right: iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.1.3 (7E18)
However many users report that they have the speed of 3.1.3 on iOS 4.0.
Good news for those who thought that FaceTime feature may spend your carrier minutes. Yesterday Apple representative told BusinessInsider that it is not true:
"The voice call ends as soon as the FaceTime call connects. The FaceTime call is over Wi-Fi so does not use carrier minutes."
That really wasn't so obvious because there was a possibility that voice call would keep running in the background in cases if Wi-Fi signal went out or video chat dropped.
The reason why FaceTime feature doesn't work in 3G networks is that it is not decided how exactly such videocalls must be billed - as data toward monthly data caps or in some other way.
