    Video review


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     TCKnight shot this video review on his new iPhone 4, using the phone's new front-facing camera feature. He told me he thought the flash for the camera "changes everything," and will likely mean he'll no longer carry around a separate digital camera. "Finally I can use my phone as a quality camera, too."
    - lila, CNN iReport producer

    Here is a brief review of the new iPhone 4


    Update 6.25.10: The reception problem is very real while holding the iPhone.  Yesterday I purchased a very slim case at Best Buy made by ifrogz called LuxeLean.  It fits well, looks great (has cool looking "vent" slits down the side and is a gray color) and is super thin. The case was $24.95 and completely eliminates the signal drop.  I just tested it with full signal bars....hold phone with case...no drop.  Hold phone without case...from full bars to one bar.


    Frogz has several cases out for the new iPhone.  One is a slider two piece case that is also very thin.  I went with the one piece that snaps on the back.  (No I don't have stock in Frogz.  LOL)


    Also, several people have commented on the horrible color of this video.  I apologize.  The video was taken with the rear camera as my partner held the phone.  Unfortunately, we didn't use one of the phone's best new features...the flash.  As you video you can choose to leave the LED light on the entire time.
