I have had an iPhone 4 now for around half a year and I have to say, I do not know if I will ever be able to go back to another type of phone. The iPhone brings practically everything to your finger tips and makes it simple to access and use.
The operating system is clear and easy to use by various finger swipes and motions on the touch screen. A bar is located at the bottom to hold the 4 most important features of the phone, the calling function itself, email, internet browser and iPod, meaning that these can be accessed from any screen unless in an app (although these can be changed). Apps and other features are then stored on the main page using large icons making it easier to identify and pick them out.
The best feature of the iPhone is of course the apple app store, giving access to thousands of free and paid for apps ranging from games to shopping and news to banking. The app store practically had an app for everything you would need so you can bid on eBay, check your account balance, chat on facebook and do your shopping on the move.
The phones touch screen is large, taking up virtually the whole of the front of the phone, meaning the phone is clear and easy to navigate using your fingers. There is a 5 megapixel camera on the back of the phone as well as a forward facing camera for video calls. The main camera is extremely clear, especially using the HDR function, resulting in amazing photos with realistic lighting.
The phone itself is extremely attractive, with its sleek glossy black surround and large touch screen with a simple single button on the front. The phone is perfect pocket size but is fairly large and bulky compared to other smart phones on the market.
There are a couple of negatives with this phone though. The fact that flash is not available on the iPhone means that not all websites are viewable and I feel that this is quite a big let down. The other thing is the fact that the phone is very limited in its personalization options. Themes cannot be added or changed and the use of the menus is limited to swiping across the screen. I feel that being able to change icons, themes and movements of items on the menus the iPhone would be slightly improved. However these negative points still don't detract from the fact that I feel this phone is the most advanced and best available at the moment.
Summary: Fantastic phone, nothing compares
