Need for a contract: The Iphone4 is a pricey piece of kit, if you decide to go pay as you go, in the UK you could expect to pay £510 for a 16GB model, or £612 for a 32GB model, this is excluding all of your accessories, top ups etc which in the long run is extremely expensive, and therefore the Iphone4 is definitely one of those phones that is cheaper and comes with more benefits on a contract, yes you may have to tie yourself into a 24 month contract, however in most cases you will get the phone for no more than £200, and you will receive a generous amount of minutes, texts and internet access per month, which you would not get on pay as you go, as the Iphone4 uses the internet for many of its features going pay as you go would see you constantly topping up.
I personally have made my Iphone4 for close to 3 months, i am from the UK and scanned alot of deals and offers for this phone, but many of them are quite expensive for what you get, then i stumbled across the one plan with Three mobile, in the end i took up a contract with three, in which i pay £35 a month for 24 months, and i payed £160 upfront for the phone (i have the 32GB model), every month i get 2000 Minutes to UK landlines and mobiles, 5000 three-to-three minutes, 5000 texts and All you can eat data(unlimited internet)
Before i purchased my Iphone4 i was never phone savvy, i never had an up to date phone that was considered good, apart from the fact i hardly used my mobile phones let alone took them out i was bored of always having a phone with no features, and the ipod nanos i owned were getting quite old and suffering with battery life issues, i decided that i would buy an iphone 4, knowing that i would actually take this out and use it often.
i had never had any experience with any products in Apples iphone range, however i have had two different generations of nano which served me well, so there was no doubt in my mind that this would be a great phone, looking at it now great is an understatement...
What can i say the Iphone4 has caught me out, i now use my phone just as much as the next 17-18 year old, i reguarly use it to call and text friends and family, check facebook, surf the web, play games, and buy stuff, and use it as a video recorder, it has so much technology crammed into it its so useful in my opinion.
Pros: Looks amazing, A lot of technology, useful, fun, fast, easy to sync & charge
Cons: very occasionally drops calls, people have problems hearing me sometimes, dropping it can easily crack the screen, and may do internal damage.
Conclusion - if you want an amazing phone with a lot of features, and don't mind investing in a contract then i would say buy it :) i have not put it down really since i got it, and i have no real complaints about it.
Hope this review helps.
Summary: I would give this product an overall 9.5/10
