Advantages: range of apps, easy to use, sleek design, front facing camera is great
Disadvantages: short battery life, expensive
I love my iphone! I use it for so many things and the apple saying that 'there's an app for that' really is true as there is an app for everything. I use it for social networking, internet shopping, playing games and all sorts of things. It also means that I no longer need to carry both my phone and my ipod as I have put all my music onto my iphone. The built in speaker is great for playing music with friends or showing them a video on youtube etc. and means you don't need to always carry earphones. The camera isn't great quality and it has been improved in the 4S but it is fine for taking the odd snap, it obviously just isn't of professional quality. The built in flash helps but I do wish they would add flash to the front facing camera as it's useless for taking pictures of myself and friends on nights out etc. because the picture simply comes out black. The front facing camera and the face time feature are great for taking to my family/friends when I am away from home and means I don't have to turn my computer on and use skype all the time. I find it so easy to use and just don't know how I ever used another phone. It looks so sleek and stylish!
I do find that my iphone is very heavy on the battery and I find I have to charge it every night. I do try to do things like dim the screen etc. to conserve battery but it doesn't really help. It's fine as long as you remember to charge it each night.
Unless you are willing to jailbreak your phone it is expensive to buy apps and you are controlled by apple policies but for what I use my phone for, that is fine
I know the 4S has siri but I don't think it's worth the extra money as I can't really imagine using it all the time and it just seems like a bit of a novelty.
Summary: I would recommend this!
