Advantages: Quick, large memory, good battery
Disadvantages: Expensive, but should have good resale value
I picked up my new iphone 4 32gb on tesco network (actually the O2 network and coverage) on the 12 month deal. I paid £299 for the phone and £35 for pretty much unlimited everything. The handsets are selling for around £600 SIM free so I believe once my twelve months is up I should recover a good half of the total yearly outlay, so I'm happy with that. The website has been showing as sold out for quite a while but if you keeping phoning like I did you may pick on up.
The iphone 4 is an amazing phone. I've moved up from an iphone 3g that I bought second hand having been extremely dissatisfied with the Blackberry Storm I had on contract. The "4" is hugely superior to the 3G which was in turn way better than the Storm.
The navigation is quicker on the 4 than on the earlier model, as in internet access and application launching. I won't talk about the amount of apps available, if you can think of it, there's an app for it.
The handset design is extremely sleek and has a nice weight and sturdy feel to it (more-so than the 3G.) The screen is supposedly more scratch resistant but you'd be foolish not to throw on an LCD cover for the sake of a few pence. It also came with the rubber case so often talked about, and with this added I see no difference in signal strength.
I picked the 32gb version as I like downloading movies, but have already fallen foul of the "unlimited" download allowance, which is actually limited to 1Gb. I didn't get billed, just a gentle reminder. I now use my home wi-fi for this task and keep my mobile allowance for out and about.
The screen is bright and big for watching movies, and the speakers decent enough to be able to watch without additional speakers. The battery also last considerably longer than the predecessor.
At an all in cost of £60 a month (averaged including upfront cost) and the reasonable chance of a good sale price in 12 months I'm over the moon with my Iphone 4.
Summary: Worth the Wait
