Advantages: does everything
Disadvantages: A bit pricey
I've never had a phone that I loved as much as I do my Iphone 4.
Generally speaking every phone i've ever had i'm always on the look out for the next phone I want. Since i've owned this phone I could honestly never consider going back to an 'ordinary' phone. I couldn't ever conceive of changing to a non apple product and for once I'm completely ok with being tied in to a 24 month contract!
Firstly this phone can be addictive and is great in every way. It's so much more than a phone! The only thing that is 'standard' about it is the actual phone facility - I mean, i'm not sure even Apple can change how you make a phone call!
However I was genuinely shocked at how good the camera is on this phone. The pictures come out clear and with the ability to upgrade the picture to 'hdr' (high dynamic range), it has a flash that you can set to auto or turn on and off as you wish. For a while I was in between digital camera and seriously considered not bothering with an actual digital camera.
There is internet capabilities which is great whilst you are on the move and if you are in a free wifi zone it allows you to browse the net easily. The map app is ideal also which lets you pin point where you are whilst connecting to 3g (brilliant if like me you get lost in london sometimes!).
Game wise it's also perfect for little games like angry birds and my own particular favourite plants vs zombies. The app store is already on your phone and you can download games and 'apps' from as little as 69p! These games are brilliant when you are at a lose end - i spend my fair share playing these games in between waiting for meetings or appointments!
As a music player this is also going to suit all your needs and 16gb is plenty storage for keeping a reasonable music collection for on the go. The quality is good, my only issue is with the earphones that are supplied, they are quite bad quality and i'd suggest investing in some decent ones!
All in all i'd never be without this phone, and although the 4s is tempting, it really is unnecessary since it offers virtually all of the same features. You'll be amazed at how much you can do with this phone once you have found all the apps that are on offer. With this phone I can check cinema timetables, download films, music, games, surf the net, keep in contact with friends via facebook, twitter and skype.
I recommend that you consider the Iphone 4 as your next phone!
Summary: The best phone ever!
