Very unimpressed by the photos and the video, and I downloaded the raw video.

Well, let's just say that it's a fine alternative for your point and shoot camera that also records 720p video.

And you can also says that he wasn't under the right light conditions, he's not a photographer, etc., etc.

But still.

It looks better than my 3G does. I'll just be happy to be able to go to a chinese place and take a picture of the fortune cookie fortune.

Re: The Official iPhone 4 Thread of Arrivals and Unboxings

If any of you get it soon, could you please post some low light stills with the flash? I have a 3GS and really the only feature that I'm truly interested in is the better camera for low light but I have a funny feeling it still won't look that great. I'm eligible for the upgrade price in February and I'm debating if I will just wait until then or try to sell my 3GS and get it for 399 so any pictures/video in low light would be great to see to help me make my mind up. So far I'm leaning towards just waiting.

I'm reading through the review Engadget just posted and they have this to say:
With the flash on, we managed decent if somewhat blown out results (fairly common with smaller LED flashes) though impressively, the iPhone 4 was usually able to take completely useable and even handsome photos in fairly low light without the flash. It seems like that photon situation is definitely in play, because even shots taken in fairly dark lighting came out looking good.

Ugh, all this reading on it just makes me want to get it even more. I hope getting in line by 5:30 will be worth it.

Maybe they already called you but since you're AT&T, you never got the call.

Re: The Official iPhone 4 Thread of Arrivals and Unboxings

SO I'm happy for all you folks out there getting an new iphone, but please try to remember this...

when you are out in public with your fancy new phone, and see someone whip out a non-iphone, try not to do the oh so condescending .. "Oh, you couldn't get an iphone, huh?" thing ...

I've had a non-iphone for only 2 weeks, and I've already heard this so many times it's really making me start to hate everyone in general.

I was wavering too ... but I decided to pre-order one anyway. This way I can still pick one up on the 24th if I decided to get it. I'm still wavering right now. I feel like I should get it now since it's all "sold out" ...

Nothing beats Fed-Ex delivering it to the house. Enjoy the crowds, suckers!

My tracking is still listing delivery on the 24th. Has anyone's been updated to reflect delivery today?

Is it still the 2nd? A friend of mine who had their order canceled got an email today saying they'll have it on the 28th.

Mine still says delivery on the 24th, as well. According to FedEx, the thing is still in Atlanta (I live an hour south of Atlanta). It has been sitting at some facility since like midnight. So at this point, barring an unprecedented hurry-up on FedEx's part or inaccurate tracking info, I'm not holding out much hope of it arriving today.
