Great Phone that's like a mini computer
I recently purchased my first iPhone and I love this phone. There are a few points that I dislike about this phone.
* Requires using iTunes for management. I didn't use iTunes before and found it annoying to have to use it.
* Metal surround around the edges are too soft. I accidentally bumped into a round brass door handle at a mall and it gouged the metal edge somehow, maybe 2 mm wide, and 6 mm long. I need my free case to arrive soon.
* Restrictive (Can't access advanced settings/features)
* Slightly confusing to create folders, remove apps, and kill running apps.
* Typing is awkward at first, I have thick fingers and it was hard for me to feel what letter I was typing at first. I got used to it now, can go at 20-30 WPM.
* Batteries don’t last long enough.
*Will corrupt iPhone if you run out of hard drive space on C drive and try to update the OS via iTunes.
There are a lot of points that I love about this phone.
* Good intuitive interface for basic operations, dragging across to go to the next page, pinching and spreading for zooming, drag for pan, and touch for click.
* Rich and varied Application base in the App store this was a very strong point that sold me on the iPhone versus other phones. Especially the free ones.
* Wide array of detection/input hardware (accelerometers, audio pickup (microphone), two visible spectrum EMF detectors (cameras), magnetic field detection, GPS receivers, WiFi, Cell antenna’s) I probably missed some.
*Multi-function: camera, video camera, sound recorder, phone, organizer, internet browser, portable gaming system, social network device, gps navigation, flashlight, music player, movie device, photo album, etc.
*Good Display resolution
*Tilt Orientation detect is well done
*Fast enough CPU
*Facetime for video conferencing
*Screen capture built into the OS.
*Loud speaker for navigation in the car on the highway
*Easy to learn how to use
*Able to VPN into my work network
*Able to remote desktop to my workstation
*Able to log into my secure wireless network
*Sturdy, I not fearing that I would drop my phone accidentally.
Here are a few of my favorite apps.
Junos Pulse, RDP, RSA Secure ID, Flashlight, Sonar, RedLaser, Key Ring, MapQuest, EMD PTE, PTEExplorer
There are a few things I wish was different.
For the keyboard, I wish there was a way to lock it in the landscape orientation, since it's bigger. But I think I'm finally used to the small keyboard. I now know the point of my left index finger that protrudes the most with my eyes closed.
I considered that I made a good purchase decision on the iPhone, and would make the same choice again.Read full review

The iPhone 4 is a tremendous improvement over the previous phones from Apple. Battery life alone is enough to sell a brand new notebook, there's no reason the same shouldn't apply for a smartphone. Being able to deliver real world battery life use of between 5.5 and 10 hours on a single charge is quite impressive. And if you aren't using the phone nonstop? Expect even longer battery life.
On top of the battery life improvements Apple finally plays catch up and surpasses the technological advancements in its Android competitors. The 4's camera is as good as it gets today and the screen is a beauty. I don't believe this advantage will last for the lifetime of the iPhone 4. The phones that are in development today at least surpass the 4's specs in terms of raw CPU speed. Given that Apple's retina display is in high volume production already I'd expect other manufacturers to pick it up in due time.
And believe it or not, even if you upgrade to the iPhone 4 today in another 12 months it'll most likely be replaced by a dual core version that you'll want even more.
The lower clocked A4 was most likely a result of wanting to save battery life, a tradeoff I'm willing to accept. The 512MB of RAM was an unexpected surprise, and a giant disappointment to iPad users. The extra memory comes in handy while multitasking, something the iPad won't be able to do until this fall. By then it's probably only a few more months until updated iPad hardware, which will almost certainly feature the same 512MB of RAM as the iPhone 4. It does mean the early iPad adopters got shafted a bit. They got a much lower density screen and less memory than the iPhone 4, despite a higher upfront costRead full review

Get the Iphone 4g
I love this Iphone. The iphone 4g is the best phone ever made. Face to face calling is really amazing. The Retina display, everything you see and do on iPhone 4 looks amazing. Text in books, web pages, and email is crisp at any size. Images in movies and photos are stunning at almost any angle. That’s because the Retina display’s pixel density is so high, your eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels.

Living proof that marketing SELLS. ALOT.
This is the fourth iteration of what is perhaps the most popular phone in cell phone history. Now featuring a higher-resolution "RETINA" screen, 5MP auto-focus camera with LED flash, 720p HD video recording, FaceTime, and a slew of other features, this iPhone 4 has all other companies going back to the drawing board yet again.
One of the more annoying features for users of an unlocked iPhone 4 on other GSM networks than AT&T is the micro-SIM. Many will have to end up cutting their SIMs to fit into the iPhone 4 slot. Other than that, this is actually the FIRST *REAL* upgrade to the iPhone series since the iPhone 2G in 2007. I've opted out of upgrading until this was released and I am proud to say that this is well worth the wait.
