    Just to say to anyone who hasn't seen/got the iPhone 4. I went to my local Apple Store today and the retina display SJ was talking about, is AMAZING. You really can tell the difference holding a 3GS and the 4 next to eachother the screen is just wonderful. Just putting it out there

    Nice. I'm real excited for when it comes out in Canada. I'm planning to visit West Edmonton Mall's Apple Store and picking one up. And hearing from your experience about the Retina Display, my mind is placing my 3GS screen as "not the best anymore".

    ^ Compared to the 3GS the Retina Display literally is "blow away" just like they said in the promo video.

    Probably not the same until you hold both devices and compare.

    You want to know something disappointing? I held up my 3G and my 4 next to each other and showed my parents... Both of them said they look the same. I mean come on! Also, I had the Shazam app icon next to the stock Apple icons on the iPhone 4, and my dad said he didn't see a difference (shazam is pixelated)

    Of course parents can't enjoy it.. they have to have bad vision xD

    I was blown away at the difference between the screens of my 3GS and iPhone 4. Seeing pictures of the comparison doesn't do it justice. It's beautiful.

    I love it so much. And like when you're in Safari, or another app where the status bar is white, the text almost looks bigger (wifi/time/AT&T)

    I was watching the WWDC and thinking "I honestly don't see a difference."

    Then I remembered I was watching it on my iPod Touch.

    Still looking for an opportunity to see them side by side.
