Advantages: brilliant all around usage, lots of apps, makes organisation easier
Disadvantages: hard to use initially when changing from a standard mobile
As a user of standard mobile phones for many years I had fallen in love with the sony walkman series and when the time came to upgrade on my contract I was in 2 minds on what to do. I decided to go for the iphone 4 16gb when it came out on the three network and I am glad I did.
It took some getting used to initially as it was very different in terms of the way it's used compared to a standard mobile phone. texting was difficult at first but once I got used to the layout and the touch screen on the phone it was really easy. Being able to access everything in one place is brilliant as are all the free apps that are available. I originally chose the iphone for email access for work. I though i would never use the apps but I was seriously wrong they're a great addition to an already awesome phone. I can watch tv on the move, track my fitnees programmes, plan cycling and car routes, find pet friendly places to stay see reviews on trip advisor shop on next. The list is endless but so useful.
The range of games is fantastic with angry birds being a personal favourite of mine. The option to view netflix on my mobile is brilliant although I'm not sure of the cost in internet usage and battery consumption when not on charge or connected to wifi.
The camera is of excellent quality and so are the videos and the extensive memory is excellent for not only photo and video storage but also for music albums. The iphone is also an ipod and can be used as such. When playing music hardly any of the battery is consumed which was surprising but very pleasing to see.
Summary: all in all a great purchase although the aclimatisation to a touch screen smart phone took time
