Excerpt: T he fourth iteration of the iPhone is certainly the most controversial handset so far. Hardware leaks, suicides and police raids have all formed part of this smartphone's turbulent journey to market.
Pros: It’s a better phone, period. More likely to pull a signal, even indoors — this could change the way we converse at bars. Hot-spotting is well-integrated and very easy to use. Has a whiter, slightly better-looking display.
Cons: Slow data transfers compared to the AT&T iPhone. Sluggish app installs take away from the App Store’s instant gratification. Video streams are compressed more heavily, so Netflix and YouTube are uglier. No simultaneous voice and data transmissions thanks to the limitations of CDMA.

Pros: Solid build quality; great camera; good battery life; slim for easy pocketing; simple and easy for new users to pick up and learn.
Cons: Very slick back; two slabs of glass versus one; larger capacity is a bit pricy at $300 on-contract; poor notification system.

Pros: Colorful screen, Fast speeds, Easy-to-use touch-screen keyboard
Conclusion: Okay, so here is the most crucial part about the Verizon iPhone 4 that you need to ask yourself. Should you go out and buy one now? Before jumping the gun and making that impulse purchase, there are some key things you’ll probably want to keep in mind.
