Advantages: Easy to use, Simple software
Disadvantages: Mechanical aspects (i.e home and silent button) not very durable
The first time i used an Iphone i was like "WOW!". I couldnt believe how incredibly adaptive it was. A powerful machine, apps galore at my finger tips. Simple touch screen, slender. I didnt even consider having to use the one year warranty...
Twelve months on, my network provider tell me that my warranty is up. The problems?
For a start the silence button on the side comes on and off at will for no apparent reason, vibrating all through the night at times, the audio jack insert has been populated by fluff and I have to use a needle to pull it out every week, the apps crash for no apparent reason, the phone has crashed 3 or 4 times losing all my numbers and app history, its incredibly complex to use with I tunes if you are from the Windows drag and drop school of thought. Despite all this, it is a good phone. Durable, reliable, occasional signal issues but generally ok. The wi-fi drops out at times for no reason and I have to reset all my network settings in order to make it work. It is however reliable for photo and video, although the camera could do with being a bit more advanced, it wouldnt have hurt to give it a decent camera as the photos are grainy and the zoom button isnt really any good for close ups.
Music on the I phone is basically a stripped down version of I tunes, again easy to use.
All in all a good phone, just be wary if you were to buy a second hand one, check on the apple forums to know what faults to look for.....
Summary: A good phone, all rounder, Just proceed with caution with second hand models. And get a case!
