comment What are common beginner mistakes in photography?
@Stainsor a sheet of paper held in front of the flash would both weaken and soften the light. If you don't have the paper (or time to use it), this is an example of situation where you can't get closer (for technical reasons). Also, if you know what "fill light" means and when you should use it, there's a good chance you're not be a beginner any more :)

comment How to correct photos which were overexposed at the edges only?
Assuming lighting of background stays the same, changing background-to-camera distance won't make it darker - larger distance means smaller magnification, i.e. light for a pixel is gathered from larger area, and this exactly compensates the change in distance. Otherwise objects far away would always seem dark.

Canon has two different 70-300 lenses. The questions referenced in previous comments are talking about 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM, which does not have Diffractive Optics.

Welcome to Photo.SE! Currently your answer only describes your opinion (without revealing any reasons why you think this way) and gives a vague hint about apps (most people considering an iPhone already know it has apps). Perhaps you could edit your answer and give more details on what you've compared iPhone 4s camera with, and which apps in which situations have been beneficial to you? Thanks!

@Abhinav when choosing the advanced flash, you might find valuable info in the overview mattdm has made about Pentax flashes - pttl.mattdm.org
