Isn’t that something you have always desired for in an iPhone? Plus, the phone is able to record videos in HD mode at 30 frames per second and at 720p resolution.
The Retina Display
Told you this iPhone has a lot of surprise you with! The Retina Display is not a special feature in the iPhone, but it is a property that definitely makes it superb. It refers to the pixel density of the screen. The iPhone 4GS offers 326 pixels per inch, which is nearly four times the display a standard LCD offers. To sum it up, you get 960 x 640 pixels as the resolution of the phone. Officials of Apple claim it to be a resolution that is more than what the human eye can perceive. So, basically if observed from a distance, the iPhone 4GS would appear like a high quality magazine to the human eye.

Keeping your Bluetooth switch on is not only unwise when it comes to security purpose but also drain battery charge. It’s not advisable to keep Bluetooth on when you’re not using it.
2. Hold your cell phone at Bottom
Hold your cell phone at the bottom because if your cover your cell phone by your hand then it reduces its ability to send or receive the signal. The phone increases its power to transmit stronger radiation.
3. Turn it off when not in use
If your cell phone is no longer in use for a longer period of time then switch it off. And if you don’t expect calls in the middle of the night then switch it off during night time too when you go to sleep and turn it on in the morning.
4. Keep the keypad locked
Keeping the keypad locked saves you from accidental dialing or blank text messages and loss of credit and battery charge. It is advisable to set your cell phone settings to phone security locking to automatically activate after 5 to 10 minutes, this is good for your security purpose as well.
5. Move to a position where signal strength is strong
If you’re in a cluttered and close area, signal reception can be an issue. Move to a place (like near window) where signal reception is good. Signal reception strength is on display on your cell phone.
6. IMEI Number
There is a unique 15-digit IMEI number in your cell phone, keep a note of it. You can see this IMIE number printed on cell phone battery or can access it by keying *#06#. If your cell phone gets stolen then you can always get it blocked by giving this IMEI number to mobile service provider.
7. Don’t Talk too long
It’s wise to use regular phone for longer talks and use cell phone only when in need. This is because radiation you are exposed to is directly proportional to the time you spend talking on your cell phone.

I was just so curious when actually people start using cell phones and how first cell phone look like? To find my answers I start digging web and came up with this article, hope you will like it!
It’s hard to imagine that once the hand held light weight device through which we can communicate throughout the world was a rarity just couple of decades of ago. Cell phones are integral part of our lives styles now and we rarely leave our homes or offices without it. The cell phones we see today have an interesting history; it all actually started couple of centuries ago when our fore-fathers were thinking that long distance communication could only be done my snail mails.
How It All Started
It takes a few men of vision to spread their dreams globally so it all really started with one man Samuel Morse. In 1832, Samuel Morse conceived the idea of electromagnetic telegraph and laid down experimental version of his idea. Then in 1842, he laid wires between Governor’s Island and Castle Garden, New York, a distance of about a mile. Half of circuitry was underwater that got broke when passing ship pulled up the cables, many speculated the end of his dream and yet Samuel Morse didn’t give up and proceeded without the cable and successfully managed to introduce first ever wireless transmission by conduction to the world.
And then the ideas started pouring in, new possibilities emerged when Michael Faraday, an analytical chemist, started an exhaustive research on space conducting electricity and then in 1865 Dr. Mahlon Loomis was the first person to communicate through wireless via atmosphere. He was the one who developed the method of transmitting and receiving messages through earth atmosphere. That was the beginning for cell phones.
The First Ever Cell Phone
For many decades, scientist concentrated on wired communication and telephones become house hold devices. Concept of wireless phones were there but no relevant success was seen until Dr. Martin Cooper invented first ever portable phone. He was the first person actually to make phone call on cell phone, he did this on the streets of New York. He related his experience in these words:
As I walked down the street while talking on the phone, sophisticated New Yorkers gaped at the sight of someone actually moving around while making a phone call. Remember that in 1973, there weren’t cordless telephones, let alone cellular phones. I made numerous calls, including one where I crossed the street while talking to a New York radio reporter – probably one of the more dangerous things I have ever done in my life. – Martin Cooper.

This rectangle box you’re seeing right now was the first commercial cell phone that became available in 1983. Then it cost $3995, weighted two pounds. Talking time was 35 minutes and for that, phone had to be charge for ten hours! Thankfully cell phones have improved a lot since then. You can see various images of old phones here. It’s a wonder to see how quickly technology has changed the face of the cell phone in little time.
Evolution of Cell Phones
Initially there was limited coverage and too much static filled but in 1980, cell phone quickly started to overcome it’s hurdle as proper standards and regulations were set. Inner circuitry became more powerful and smaller, making the possibility of smaller and lighter cell phone a reality. In 1990s when transmission of cellular phone went from analog to digital, quality of communication improved. With emergence of pre-paid phone accounts, cell phones truly become popular because that made this communication technology affordable for everyone.
The best thing about the evolution of cell phones is that its not over yet. Plenty of changes happened, plenty are happening and there are plenty of new ideas that are surging around that one day become an important part of cell phones.
