Apple iPhone 4: 10 Reasons to buy the new iPhone

Find out why the iPhone is still top dog (and bone)...

The HTC Desire may well have beaten it to the title of T3's Phone of the Year, but Antennagate aside, there's plenty to laud over Apple's latest smartphone creation.

As the Android smartphone army grows seemingly by the day and Windows Phone 7 handsets begin to surface, the fight for mobile phone supremacy has never been more interesting.

So what is Apple bringing to the table? We take a snapshot look at the iPhone 4 specs that may sway you to buy the latest Apple smartphone, or even wait for the white iPhone 4 which only esteemed fanbois like Stephen Fry can get hold of at the moment.

See below for our 10 reasons why you should buy T3's Commuter Gadget of the Year the Apple iPhone 4.

1/ Camera

The iOS 4 update added HDR capabilities to the already excellent camera. Photographs impress in all but murky conditions.
