We’ve heard rumors for a while iPhone 4 already. Now it seems as if the new iPhone is finally going to be making its way to stores. This news comes from multiple reports. Several carriers in Europe have been pointing to an April 27th release. Best Buy has pinned an April 27th (Wednesday) release date on the device.
We don’t know for sure that it’s true, but there is enough information circulating right now for us to say it’s probably happening. Now, is the new iPhone worth picking up this late in the game? Let’s take a look at some of the reasons this new handset may or may not be for you.
1) Still Have an iPhone 1 or an iPhone 3G?
Some of us at iSmashPhone upgrade with each iPhone generation. That’s more of a work thing, so that we can check out the latest hardware and software. However, there is not always a need to update. One case where it may be best is if you still have a first-gen iPhone or a a 3G. We’ve been there. A regular 3G is a pain to use with most of today’s apps and Apple’s current firmware.
2) You Wanted the White iPhone 4 from the Start
So yeah, it’s been a while since the iPhone 4 was released. Still, even back then Apple had plans for the white iPhone 4. A few delays later, it’s still not available. That’s supposed to change this week. If you don’t mind going with the iPhone 4, knowing that the new iPhone 5 is coming in September, by all means, go for it.
Not For You?
1) Have an iPhone 3GS?
Some of us have the iPhone 3GS. White was also a popular color for that phone. The truth is, you probably don’t need to get an iPhone 4 at this point if you have a 3GS, as the improvement is nice, but it isn’t leaps and bounds over the previous one. The iPhone 5 will make the 3GS look ancient, and the iPhone 4 look just like the iPhone 4.
2) Been Holding out This Long?
You don’t have an iPhone 4 yet. You do have your iPhone 3GS. Why jump to the iPhone 4 now? It’s not going to be the latest and the greatest in a few months time. You’ve waited since June 2010, what’s another few months? By that time, you will be ready for the iPhone 5, and glad you waited.
What Are You Going With?
Is the white iPhone 4 too little too late for you? Would you rather wait until later to see what Apple has up its sleeve for the iPhone 5? Whatever your answer is, let us know in the comments. Are you going for it? Or are you going to hold out?
