Verizon iPhone review

 

The Verizon iPhone 4 is an interesting product for Engadget to review. Firstly, it's not exactly a new device (not in any outwardly noticeable way).

Far fewer dropped calls than AT&T version ; No Verizon crapware ; It's the iPhone 4

Data rates slower than AT&T model ; Hotspot interrupted by incoming calls ; Poor overseas roaming options

Apple iPhone 4 review: Love it or hate it

 

You can't make a phone that everyone loves and Apple is not even trying. Much like any other iPhone so far, the iPhone 4 is a phone that everybody loves AND hates. Apple's latest is always the greatest – you have to give them that...

Apple’s latest is always the greatest – you have to give them that. Sometimes it seems they put less effort into making it than in letting people know they did. But with the Apple iPhone 4, they were obviously hard at work. The 4th generation iPhone...

Amazing new industrial design ; Retina Display is stunning ; iOS 4 makes major improvements

Annoying pop-up notifications ; Reception is improved, but still has issues ; Desperately needs widgets

Virgin Mobile offers the iPhone 4 contract-free

 

If the idea of signing a two-year contract for an iPhone makes you recoil, Virgin Mobile (expensively) offers the iPhone 4 with unlimited data and talk, commitment-free.

The ; offers all the usual iPhone features, plus mobile hot spot, without a contract.

Virgin's iPhone 4 data speeds are slower than AT&T's and Verizon's, and it lacks both world roaming and the ability to access voice and data simultaneously.

At a hefty cost, the Virgin Mobile iPhone 4 delivers an unlimited plan without a contract -- just don't expect blazing-fast data speeds.

Apple iPhone 4 Virgin Mobile review

 

When the first iPhone debuted in 2007, it and subsequent versions were only available on AT&T. Finally, in 2011, it landed on Verizon Wireless, with Sprint getting the iPhone 4 and 4S a year later.

Apple iPhone 4 (Cricket Wireless)

 

The Apple iPhone 4 is a powerful, easy-to-use smartphone for Cricket, but it's a bit too expensive for what you get.

Great screen. Terrific app market. Easy to use.

Expensive. Won't get some new iOS 6 features. Not available in several major Cricket cities.

Conclusions The Cricket Wireless iPhone is the least expensive iPhone 4 model available with an unlimited calling plan, if you factor in the cost of the service plan. But while it's still a good phone, it's delivered at a very high price for a...

Apple iPhone 4 (Virgin Mobile)

 

Apple's iPhone 4 is still a good smartphone, but it costs too much compared with Virgin's Android-powered competitors.

The least expensive iPhone available (with service, over two years). Excellent high-res screen. Terrific apps.

Expensive. No 4G. Won't get all the features from the new iOS.

Conclusions The Virgin Mobile iPhone 4 is the least expensive iPhone model available, if you factor in the cost of the service plan. But while it's a good phone, like its sibling the 4S on Virgin, it's just much too expensive than other good phones on...

Apple iPhone 4 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Our lab tests show that Verizon's iPhone 4 is just as good as the wildly popular AT&T model, if not better.

Beautiful ultra-high-res screen. Thousands of apps. Wi-Fi hotspot mode.

No 4G. Needs a bumper for best reception.

The "no voice and data" monster does become a bit annoying when tethering. If you get a call in hotspot mode, you get the option to pick up the call. If you do, everyone who's connected to your hotspot stays connected to the local network, but they...

Apple iPhone 4 Verizon Wireless review: Apple iPhone 4 Verizon Wireless

 

Apple iPhone 4 Verizon Wireless

The Verizon iPhone 4 offers a hot-spot feature not available on AT&T's device. Performance was better in most regards.

The Verizon iPhone 4 lacks world roaming and the ability to access voice and data simultaneously. The hot-spot feature didn't work with all devices.

The Verizon iPhone 4 has much in common with its AT&T counterpart, but varying features and different performance give it enough room to stand apart. It won't vastly change your iPhone experience, but we welcome the consumer choice that it brings.
