Disadvantages: hard to hold
Since I got this iphone 4 I have not been able to be apart from it a second. I genuinely love its features and its design. Mine is black and I prefer it that way since the white looks too girly and the contrast between the brightness and the frame is better on the black one. The resolution is fantastic, you literally cannot see a single pixel, no matter how close you look at the screen. the battery life is ok for what it does and if it is not enough for all that you do on a smartphone in a day, you can get a portable charger for cheap and you will get a couple of more hours of iphone fun. I have mine on 3 for £35/month with a free phone and unlimited internet/texts/calls. I think it's the best deal out there and it's perfect because you don't have to fork out for the handset.
The possibilities with the appstore are infinite, and if you jailbreak it then you have the advantage of even getting them for free through installous and personalising your device with tweaks and themes from cydia that make it look even cooler.
The 16 Gb I've got are enough to fit in the right amount of apps, songs and even films, and still leave good space for the snaps you take every day.
I had a blackberry before and I was scared that the touch screen keyboard would turn out as an inconvenience for me but it didn't, sooner than later you end up getting used to it, even loving the way it functions and not hating it because some key fell off.
The only downside I can think of is how slippery it is which makes it very scary to hold because you feel it is going to fall on the floor and I don't want it to crack how the ones I've seen of some friends. You can easily solve this issue by getting rubbery case that will protect and allow you to enjoy it for longer.
I had a 3G iPhone before and this one has improved drastically. The design is a lot more sturdy and feels stronger, it's way faster and user-friendly and although I haven't had it for long, I'm sure it won't crash or die as soon as the 3G did. All the buttons and casing feels very well manufactured so I plan on keeping it for 4 or 5 years.
Summary: best smartphone ever
