Summary :

Both has a good network coverage in GSM mode (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900) also HSDPA (3G) support but Arena lacks in frequency coverage(only HSDPA 2100) which is supported by iPhone 4 (HSDPA   850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900)

iPhone has wide 3.5 inches screen while KM 900 Arena has 3 inches. The screen resolution is 640 x 960 pixels and 480 x 800 pixels respectively and both has scratch resistant screen surface.

In quality of sound and music playing LG beats the iPhone 4 with its inbuilt Dolby Sound System

There is one more lacking in iPhone 4. There is no card slot for external memore, although it has built-in 16/32 GB Memory, but where as Arena support extra card slot up to 32 GB and it has built in 8 GB of Memory.

Although iPhone has latest WiFi support for b/g/n while Arena supports only b/g

Both has 5MP (2592 x 1944 pixels) camera with auto focus & LED flash, GEO Tagging, but iPhone 4 lack of VGA@30fps, QVGA time-lapse and slow-mo video recording, which is quite fantastic feature has LG given. Also iPhone lacks in one more thing that video call can only be possible over Wifi even if you have 3G network available in your area.

LG KM900 Arena has builtin document viewer which is very handy Also it supports a wide variety of video and audio format including MP3/WAV/WMA/eAAC+ and MP4/DivX/XviD/WMV/H.264/H.263

Both phone has built in GPS but LG Arena has Google maps with it. Although there is Apps store for iPhone 4 which has many software but all are not free at least the good ones.

Lastly both phone has very good response from the audience as well as both are quite comparable to each other in many aspects. Still if you looking for a budget phone with extra ordinary function, LG KM 900 will be the winner.
