This is now turning into a norm isn't it? Every time a new iPhone is launched, there are designers who come up with unique designs to decorate these gadgets in their own ways and styles. With the launch of iPhone 4, this tendency has increased manifold. Last year, we saw a 3.2 Million dollars iPhone 3GS Supreme. This year with the arrival of iPhone 4, we saw a Swiss registered company Gresso, offering iPhone 4 with a unique wooden back panel. This back panel was made of 200-year-old African Blackwood and the Apple logo on the back was made with 18 karat Gold. And then finally came the iPhone 4 Diamond Edition. But to get this uniqueness and style, you had to shell out lots of money, from $3,500 to somewhere around $20,000 for the Diamond Edition which is certainly not affordable by any ordinary individual isn't it.
Gizmodo has received a report from one of their reader who claims to have got a slightly different iPhone 4 from Apple which doesn't seem to drop calls, and is free from proximity sensor issue. Full report is as follows.
Having the infamous reception issues on your new iPhone 4? well you are not alone on this. Apart from the upcoming firmware update iOS 4.0.1 / 4.1 which is due in the “next few weeks”, there are two other ways to fix this problem.
Gresso, the manufacturer behind some of the most luxury devices with skillful execution and outstanding design are now offering Apple iPhone 4 with a wooden back panel that makes it stand out from the crowd. The back panel is made of 200-year-old African Blackwood while the Apple logo on back is made with 18 karat Gold. Available in two designs: one for men dubbed “iPhone 4 for man” and the other for women dubbed “iPhone 4 for lady” is so much more classy than the original offered by Apple.
Despite all the problems, the new iPhone 4 has broken all the sales record for Apple. After selling 1.5 Million iPhone 4’s right on the first day of the release, this morning, Apple confirmed via press release that they have managed to sell over 1.7 Million iPhone 4’s in just three days of its launch. On this occasion, Apple CEO Steve Jobs called it the most successful Apple product ever.

You must have heard about the buzz going on about the yellow tint / spot on the Retina display of iPhone 4 screen. This could be present anywhere from top left corner of the screen, middle, to lower corners of the screen.
