Apple's Verizon iPhone 4 has improved antenna, integrated GPS - Page 2

post #41 of 50
Assuming that the iP5 gets an integrated GPS, does that mean it is 'improved?'

A big reason for me to upgrade to the iP4 was because of the improved GPS reception over the iP3 as I use it for navigating. Now the current model uses a standalone GPS which sounds much better to me than an integrated system, but that could be because I have been scarred by intel's crappy graphic performance. Does integrated mean better when it comes to GPS?

Verizon is throttling their network for iPhone users. They are also implementing 'data optimization' that will degrade the quality of video.

Their unlimited plan is not unlimited. If you download 'too much' data, they throttle you down big time for 2 months.

If the Palm Pre Plus's GPS is any indication of how GPS will work on the VZW iPhone:
"Can you find me now?" would go unanswered.

Verizon has stated, after that came out, that they weren't going to be doing that, at least not now. It all depended on how hard the network got hit.

And the throttling was to be for ALL phones, not just iPhones.

The really funny thing about the whole (entirely bogus) "antennagate" angle on all of this is that Consumer Reports was making some noise the other day about "technical improvements" in the Verizon iPhone antenna design (based, one can only assume, on the fact that it looks different), that they might be able to recommend it. These guys clearly have no idea what they are doing.

Thank you.

That's really what I was getting at with my feigned props to Ireland. Of course they would be changing the antenna design slightly - just based on frequency and bandwidth types alone.

Rather amusing to see what gets some folks panties in a twist.

Others will have battery issues, but that number is irrelevant to the issue as a consumer. Go into an Apple Store or call them and get a new one.
