      Quite expensive but if you have the money, go for it

      I have owned an Apple iPhone 4S now for around a year, and I have found that it has many useful features. However, there are also some glitches/downfalls which I sill mention later on.

      Advantages
      The iPhone 4S has a beautiful design, looks really sleek and sophisticated. The new ios7 updates means that the software also looks great and is easy to use. It has many built in features such as calendar, calculator, mail, notes, reminders and many more. There are also plenty of apps available to download from the App Store. The music facility is great and it is really easy to download more music, either from your computer or the iTunes Store.

      Disadvantages
      As with most apple product, the phone sometimes glitches. The messages sometimes disses pear randomly for a while and the phone can sometimes also freeze. The screen can get scratched if not properly protected and will smash if dropped.

      I would commend this phone, but it does come with high maintainable and quite a high probability of something going wrong.

      A pocket rocket !

      First time user of an Apple I-phone , and not being a techie it took a while to get the hang of it - and it was like opening Pandora's box as to the sheer scope and range of features . I only wish I had purchased an "Apple" long ago . Once I had got the feel of it and realised that it was a word processor, radio, camera , map, gps and a telephone with new features being discovered every time I used it I was more than delighted . The battery life is reasonable, it is slim in width and slips easily into a coat or trouser pocket
      All in all it is a pocket rocket and has many advantages and features over that of more conventional smart phones, and I am more that delighted that my first I-phone has more than proved excellent value for money

      This Iphone 4 has the best features that I need.

      I love this Iphone 4, it's exactly the type of phone that I like. The size of it's screen is just the size that I need. I am not a fan of phones with bigger screen as I am not into gaming. I am after the ease of use of the phone, it's right size, and of course it's speed. Iphone 4 has it all that's why I couldn't find any other brand of phone that is as excellent as this. One thing that I am not so happy about is it's weight as I prefer a lighter one, easy to carry but I don't think this can be an issue. Afterall, if it is heavier it also signifies good quality so I think it is still acceptable to me and it won't affect my ratings to this Iphone 4. For me, this is the best phone that fits my need.

      Great phone for everyone

      The iPhone in my opinion is the best phone out there. Although I don't think 8gb is enough for everything that you will want to put on there. I've put a lot of music on my phone and now I'm struggling for space. I've had an iPhone for years and I'm still learning little things about it all the time. The only issue I have with the iPhone is that it doesn't hold enough charge. I have to charge it every night, sometimes again during the day. Apart from that though it is pretty faultless. Quick and easy to use. The speakers on it seem to of got louder aswell which is good for playing music. The iMessage ISO a great feature, it's an quick and free way of sending messages and photos to other iPhone users, as long as you both have 3G or connected to wifi. I would recommend the iPhone to anyone as it's so easy to use

        Disadvantages

        Great buy I'd always go back to this phone as I prefer it over other brands

        IPhone 4S

        Positives- amazing quality camera 8mp- the camera on this phone is amazing for a phone the quality of the pictures even came out better than my 16mp camera.

        Display- stunning and such a sleek design I love how thin it is as it's so light

        Music and videos- I love how it can store 8gb of memory as It is multi purpose since I don't have to bring my iPod touch with me everywhere I can store loads of music and videos of my choice

        Battery- battery life is average although the charger can just be used as a USB to plug into the computer and charge, it doesn't last for very long. I do listen to music and use the Internet a lot so I can understand why it doesn't last as long as it says for this reason and I think if i just used the iPhone 4S for mainly texts and phone calls or just on standby it'd last a lot longer

        Disadvantages-

        Cost- the cost is quite a lot for what you get with the phone but I think you are paying for the apple brand and how well known it is.

          Great phone with much more advantages than disadvantages, more I think about it it has only one di..

          Iphone 4 is a great smartphone to have. Although Iphone 5 is better and newer, Iphone 4 is cheaper, and in some aspects comparable to Iphone 5. I, for a fact, have Iphone 4 and I'm very satisfied with it, and wouldn't change it for any other phone, only maybe Iphone 5. I have to say that Apple really makes best and most efficient phones on the market. Camera is really extraordinary, I really don't have to have any photo camera with me, only my Iphone 4. Speed of the phone is remarkable, games work perfectly, internet can't be faster. App store is updated very often and games are really fun to play on this phone. Great thing about this phone is that it's light and really easy to use.

          I'm fascinated with my phone and very satisfied.

          Only downside of the phone is that it's not for clumsy people, screen can easily brake if the phone falls to much.

          A neat little smart phone

          Ok so where do I start with reviewing this phone? First of all let me just say I am a big fan of this phone - having owned it for nearly two years now I'm considering not upgrading as I feel there's nothing better on the market at the moment.

          The size of the phone is 11cm by 6cm - it's got a decent sized screen yet it's small enough to fit in your pocket or your bag. Speaking of other physical attributes of the phone the battery life is only average - it normally lasts just a day with me but it charges fairly quickly.

          The basics of the phone such as texting, phoning and accessing the internet are very easy and with all the free wifi available in city centres these days you don't really need to purchase internet at all in my opinion.

          The iPhone 4S has a really interesting feature called Siri - you hold down the big round button on your phone and up Siri pops! You ask questions out loud to Siri, and Siri responds. You can ask a serious question such as "where can I get a Chinese takeaway from?" And Siri will search the internet and given you an answer, or you could say to Siri "mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all?" And Siri will tell you it's you! As with most voice recognition it doesn't work well with strong accents but in general it's a neat little gimmick.

          This phone in General is very good, it's just so user friendly and if you ever do struggle with it, there's so many users of it out there that there's plenty if help out there for you should you become stuck.

            A phone like Marmite; you'll love it or hate it

            I somewhat reluctantly upgraded my old but well loved Blackberry last year for an iPhone 4S. When I first received the phone, I had literally no idea how to use it, and as an Apple virgin (apart from my old school iPod) the icons made no sense. However as time has gone by, it has struck me that this is a phone made for even the biggest technophobe. Even my old man now has one. The choice of apps to personalise the phone is expansive, iMessage is a revelation (albeit pretty much the same as BBM); the only problem is that I want an upgrade! Unfortunately, that is what Apple does, it takes away your choice. Once you go Iphone, you never go back. Also, the constant "software upgrades" that you don't really have a choice to not take make it difficult to keep track of what your phone is capable of. I'm sure even now, a year later, I still do not understand what my phone can fully do. Part of me thinks that is exciting, part of me doesn't see the point.

            The phone is ideal for those looking for a fast, high quality and affordable mobile phone.

            I recently bought this iPhone a few months ago because I was in need of a high quality, well working mobile phone. The design of this phone is appealing due to it's modern look and the speed of the phone is still great. I found the phone easy to set up and use right away and it was at an affordable price. When the phone is hooked up to Wi-fi... it is brilliant! You can call people from applications like skype and oovoo or you could use the iPhones built in FaceTime application which allows you to video and voice call for free to other apple product users! I would recommend this phone to anyone looking for a cheap, well working phone that can be used for communication, entertainment and web-browsing.

            Note: I would advise for users to invest in a protective case to prevent the front and back panel from smashing!

            Not much difference between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, but still a great phone

            I bought the iPhone 4S after my contract ran out on my iPhone 4 and was very disappointed with how little difference there was between the two models. As far as I could see, the only difference was the fast that the newer 4S had Siri on it, and operated slightly faster.
            Having said this, the iPhone 4S is still a really great phone for all those people who need to stay connected while on the move. You can access your emails, any webpage and social media sites all from the click of a button - great for staying in the loop. FaceTime which uses WiFi is great for keeping in contact with friends and relatives. It is literally like a mini computer, with the added benefit of not necessarily needing wifi to be able to use the phone to surf the web (providing you have sufficient mobile network connection)
            With a very clear display and stylish outer, the iPhone 4S is suitable for absolutely anybody, and the 8GB capacity offers plenty of space for your photos, videos and music.

            An honest opinion on the iPhone

            Nothing compares to this phone! It is simply the most amazing phone i have ever had. It is practical for any lifestyle and also personal/business. Prior to this phone i had a blackberry and i must admit Apple has simply astonished me. Just the design itself it simply amazing to look at it. The iPhone 4 is literally perfect for everything( apps, games, video phone calls).
            Let me start off with the apps, the rate at which it downloads is considerably fast and delivers apps to you in a great condition with excellent features.
            The camera on the iPhone is in a league of its own, nothing i have seen before has had such detailed resolution and a variety of features to enhance your pictures.
            The rate at which it delivers messages and connects video calls is greatly helpful as for other phones it is a pain to connect with someone on video call. With apps such as Skype and Face time your experience will be made even better.
            I would definitely recommend this phone to really everyone as I personally feel it can adjust to whoever its owner is.. sounds weird but i honestly believe it is true.

            Criticism:
            Slightly expensive
            Internet at times can be slightly slow

            good purchase. not too sure if it is worth the money!

            Everyone seems to be getting an iPhone recently, where have the days gone when people didn't mind about aesthetics and only wanted a practical, long lasting phone? Anyway, seeing as though everyone is going through an iPhone craze, i thought i might join in. After looking at the prices for the new 5c iPhones, i decided to opt for a slightly older (and cheaper!) version, so decided to purchase the iPhone 4. I am quite a clumsy person and normally buy phones which are quite tough to break. This was not the case with my iPhone 4. After having it from brand new for only a few days, i accidentally dropped it (onto carpet, may i add) and the bottom half of the screen slightly cracked. Although disappointed, it wasn't the end of the world as it could've been worse and been the whole screen! Apart from that disaster, everything on the iPhone seemed to be great. I enjoy the touch screen aspect and i love downloading and exploring new apps.
            Overall, great phone - but not made for clumsy people! I am just waiting for the day which the rest of it cracks (and hoping that it is not anytime soon!)

            not the phone for me

            I have always wanted an iPhone, as it was the newest thing that everyone just had to have. So on my 18th I got myself into an 18 month contract allowing myself to have this 'amazing' gadget that everyone was talking about.
            The first problem with this phone is that it is always getting you to update the software, even when you don't have the appropriate space. I decided to ignore all of these update notifications, which just caused my phone to be slow, gliche and just generally not work properly meaning that I had no choice to delete all of my apps just for the space for the update. And then, even when the software has updated itself, it is nothing worth bragging about! Just a few color and font changes.
            I would definitely not recommend this phone to anyone, as they are very fragile and always gliche out at a moments notice.

            It's a very good phone

            I really do prefer this phone to the iphone 3, so much easier to use and enter functions. The camera is something I use a lot so am pleased that the quality of photos is a lot better than iphone 3 and also there is a flash so I can take photos when it's darker. A lot of the newer photo apps only work with this phone too so it's been fun to try those out.
            I like the square shape of this phone, feels easier to hold and less likely to drop it as that always a worry!
            The only bad point that I have found with this phone is that the battery doesn't last very long and when it gets low it does seem to completely run out very quickly. I would think that this is a problem with most smartphones though so it doesn't put me off owning it just means I need to remember to keep it charged!
