A Comparison Between The iPhone 4 And The BlackBerry Bold 9790

Back in June of 2010, Apple came out with their 4th generation iPhone. Last year (December of 2011), BlackBerry released their BlackBerry Bold 9790. Now, let me tell you about two of the best smartphones that ever hit the market. In this article, we will talk about and compare the iPhone 4 and the BlackBerry Bold 9790. These handsets may be released one year apart (2010 and 2011) from each other, but they have been the best handsets that ever hit the market during their time. Please allow me to compare them for you. Read on!

I will start with their display screens. To start off the comparison note, let's talk about Apple's phone followed by BlackBerry's handset. Apple packed its handset with 3.5" LED-backlit IPS touch screen and it comes in with a screen resolution of 640 x 960 pixels (pixel density of 330 ppi). BlackBerry on the other hand packed its phone with 2.45" TFT capacitive touch screen and it comes with a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels (pixel density of 245 ppi). When it comes to having a bigger screen and higher screen resolution, I can easily give a whole good point to Apple for packing its handset with a 3.5" screen.

Another feature we should discuss and compare is their cameras. Apple packed its phone with 5MP shutter with 2592 x 1944 pixels. It can also record videos at 720 pixels at 30 frames per second. There is also a VGA front-facing camera on this with 480 pixels resolution and can shoot at 30 frames per second. BlackBerry on the other hand packed its handset with the same 5MP shutter with the same resolution (2592 x 1944 pixels). But it packs a VGA video recording capability only. There is also no front-facing shutter on this handset. Another good point and a half goes to Apple for packing a front-facing shutter and being able to record videos at 720 pixels.

Let's now talk about processors and memory capacity. Apple decided to ship its handset with 1GHz Cortex - A8 processor chip. You can also choose from their 8, 16, or 32GB worth of memory storage handsets with 512MB RAM. BlackBerry on the other hand came up with 8GB worth of memory storage phones and backed it up with 768MB RAM. If the 8GB memory capacity is quite small for you, then you can easily add more memory via the phone's microSD card slot. Yes, you can basically add as much as 32GB more worth of memory. When it comes to owning more memory storage or memory capacity, I give BlackBerry a whole good point for packing its handset with a memory card slot for more storage option.

From the main features mentioned above, Apple received two and a half good points and BlackBerry received only one. The answer is clear as to who wins in this comparison note. But whether you are an iPhone 4 fan or BlackBerry Bold 9790 fan, you always have the upper hand in choosing what is best for you.

This is my brief comparison note on the iPhone 4 and BlackBerry Bold 9790.
