Engadget’s iPhone 4 First Hands On [Video]

The good folks over at Engadget have managed to get their hands on the iPhone 4, and they seem to be positively impressed by the device so far.

- As we said, it’s shockingly thin.

- The screen is truly outrageous – you basically cannot see pixels on it. We’re not being hyperbolic when we say it’s easily the best looking mobile phone screen we’ve ever laid eyes on.

- The build quality is really solid. The home button feels much snappier, and on the whole it just feel like a tightly-packed device, but it’s not heavy.

- The side buttons are really nice and clicky.

- iOS 4 is very familiar – there’s not a lot added to fit and finish.

Good to know that the side buttons feel good. As for screen quality, I guess it’s something you really have to see by yourself to judge. Check out pictures and video below.
