iPhone 4 battery life in line with Apple's claims

A website based in the Czech Republic has become the home of the world's first iPhone 4 review, based on first-hand experience of a leaked prototype running the full version of iOS 4.

Reports suggest that one Czech tech fan managed to secure a fully functioning iPhone 4 before its global launch and recorded his findings on the Jablickar website for all to see.

The iPhone 4 has a battery that is nearly a fifth larger than that of its predecessor and the leaked smartphone allegedly lives up to Apple's promise of improved battery life.

Apple has failed to get the battery life of its previous iPhone models up to scratch and it has been a constant woe for many users, so this will be seen as a significant benefit.

The user said that Apple has worked hard to make the screen and backplate of the iPhone 4 as durable as possible, but the metal rim around its circumference is apparently rather less hardy, picking up nicks and scratches with greater frequency than its other external surfaces.

The user praised the speed with which the iPhone 4 was able to use its GPS receiver to provide a location for the device and the general responsiveness of the interface was also noted.

Some will be particularly interested to hear that the user managed to take still images using the iPhone 4's five megapixel camera, as well as shooting some video in high definition.

These are clear improvements over previous iPhone models. Far more will become known once the iPhone 4 launches this week.
