Advantages: Looks lovely in your hand, sleek, useful
Disadvantages: Becomes slow quickly, the novelty wears off
Of course the iPhone is one of the most popular phone on the market and it's extremely obvious why. On first glances this is a glamourous good looking phone, it's sleek and the branded logo of Apple makes you look expensive and "in". However attractive this product may be there are many follow up problems once you begin to use the phone on a daily basis.
This phone allows you to add lots and lots of apps which is very appealing for the young generation however the more apps you add, the slower device becomes, even slide transitions become sluggish. Opening texts becomes virtually unbearable, waiting maximums of 3-4 minutes for the text page to open. Obviously this becomes very irratating.
However Apples apps are supreme over all the other brands so it is very tempting to over this phone with them but, pre-warning it will over load the phone and begin to drive you slowly insane.
This phone has great features and great music and photo features but it does quickly become sluggish and irratiable.
Plus for the ladies, very difficult to store in a small handbag or jean pocket etc as it is a lot bigger than your average phone but overall its a decent phone, but I would recommend a newer version such as the iPhone 4 which has tried to address some of the problems this phone faced.
Summary: This is a good phone if that's all you want to use it for as the apps slow it down dramatically
