It happened with the original iPhone, then with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, also with the IPAD and now comes the turn of the iPhone 4. The truth is that every release of Apple’s products is inevitably accompanied by complaints from users whose units have some problems arising from the assembly line or of an overall design. The question in all these cases, as argued in any market study, is that only will come out negative cases … since they are the ones that move us to search (or force) solutions, and pose an outlet for frustration, something totally understandable considering how it must feel who has invested hundreds of dollars on a product that has been looking forward to for so long and, once in their hands, does not meet the expectations expected.
Anyway, these seem to be the main weaknesses of the new iPhone 4. Some of them with a solution, other are simply more or less serious according to the person using the device and how to use it:
The volume buttons, unlike
The rush is never good counselors and this is what seems to have happened in the iPhone assembly line in April, since it seems that some units have the volume adjustment buttons mounted upside down.
Ie, labeling as “-” takes up the volume, while the button labeled “+” will reduce the sound.“Solution? Simply apply for replacement by another … or live with it. It all depends on what each one requires money paid for the iPhone 4.
Some displays seem to yellowish spots in certain areas of the screen. There seems to be nothing serious and, in fact, it is also something about the rush on the assembly line. One of the products used in the manufacture of the screen requires a certain amount of time for proper evaporation. With a bit of use for a few days, experts indicate that the problem be solved without more.
What appears to be the most serious of all problems is related to the fact that Apple has used in its design the casing as an antenna, so that depending on how you hold the phone can you run out of full coverage conversation. They have come to light some videos showing the problem, but it is also true that many users are not experiencing (most perhaps?). Watch this:
In any case, it is rumored that is an issue that can be solved by a software update operating system (IOS 4.0.1) and in fact could be published next week.
For those who really are a severe problem of coverage Apple’s CEO (Steve Jobs) provides you with another solution: use a case or hold it “another way”.
