    With all the reception issue posts and complaints about yellow screen I have really not seen any complaints about build quality!

    What happened to the light leak posts and the uneven bezel complaints? No one has a problem with dust under the screen? Nice!

    I have to admit, the iPhone 4 is pretty darn solid!

    Definitely the best built phone I've ever held.

    I agree. Beautiful build. No light leak. A great little package.

    I'm waiting anxiously for my Wrapsol and my bumper, so that I can keep it looking good.

    This thing is tight.

    (That's what he said. :D)

    Definitely the most precision built piece of electronics I have ever owned. I love the new design. It really does look and feel like and old Leica camera or a design from Braun. Even though Ives is an English man this design screams German Industrial style.

    Good point. That's usually one of the first complaints out of the box.

    This thing is solid. I doubt people could find something to complain about that isn't a unit specific defect.

    It's unbelievable that someone hasn't spouted off a hate message about the dreaded reception issues. This phone is insane. Absolutely exceeded my expectations and is truly the best phone out there right now.

    I think the haters are so stupefied by this positivity that their heads have all exploded in rage! :p

    with all the issues I have with this phone, still I would NEVER go back to holding any other phone again. Once you hold this thing in your hands you cant go back.

    I'm going to have to stop myself from babying it. It's a finely built device.

    I agree, this is the best phone I've ever owned. Great build quality and other than the reception issues that are plaguing this thing, I don't have any complaints. The screen is what amazes me the most. SJ was right; once you use a retina display, you won't be able to go back.

    I agree. I finally upgraded from the iPhone 2G, which was by far the best phone I've ever had and one of the neatest pieces of tech I've owned. The iPhone 4 blows it out of the water - I honestly do not think I've owned anything else that is/was of such high quality design and manufacture.

    I agree totally with the above. Even though I keep mine in a case, soon to be an Otterbox Defender, I get to take it out and enjoy when very safe. ;)

    It's refreshing to see some threads with positive comments. :)

    I agree with others above. I love iPhone 4.

    PS I'm surprised of build consistency Apple products have, when they're made in China. (Not saying Chinese workers are unskilled or anything, they are quite the opposite, but you would think these iPhones would have to be made in Germany or somewhere.)

    There have been posts about dust, debris, dead pixels, uneven volume buttons, incorrectly placed volume buttons, etc.

    Well i don't have any of that and all i can speak from is personal experience :D
    And Tardis (Which is what i named my iPhone) doesn't have any of this wrong with it.

    I hear ya, when i was killing my battery after its first charge it took forever. From 8am to after 6pm I was constantly streaming music via 3G or WiFi depending on where I was, playing Need For Speed as often as I could, or using the MLB app streaming the audio and keeping it on gameday which keeps the screen on. I couldn't believe how long it was taking to kill it. Very impressive.

    I read a review where the reviewer mention that the iPhone 4 reminded him of a Sony gadget from the 70's/80's when all Sony electronics were still built in Japan...As a former Sony FanBoy, I have to older Sony electronics were extremely well built and very stylish and are still working...
    Very well done Apple...a HUGE upgrade from the cheap plasticky 3G and 3GS...:apple:

    Very few with little or no response. In fact, check the first couple of pages on iPhone forum. I didn't see any build quality complaints!

    Nice! :D

    Agreed. The Sony Trinitron my parents gave me in 1992 still works perfectly.

    There is an eyelash under the glass of my 3G phone and I didn't complain or really notice it if unless the screen was off.

    I have the reception issue but it's never caused me to drop a call and when I use it otherwise I'm just mindful of the corner and have zero problems.
    It's a beautiful device and the pros far outweigh the cons.
