Advantages: Does everything
Disadvantages: antenna issue can drop calls if held in a certain way
I got an IPHONE back in 2007 it changed my smart phone world forever, This Phone definitely keeps up with that and Apples trend of Impressive yet easy easy to use technology. The Control method and IOS is extremely quick and simple to use.
First of all lets talk about the hardware itself,
The handset is sleek, nice to the touch and oozes with quality definitely a well thought out and manufactured device obviously with 1 exception but we will come to that later. The unit is Fingerprint-resistant made from an oleophobic coating on it front and back in other words toughend glass. Do be careful though the slightest drop on a concrete or hardened surface will almost certainly crack the device. Make sure you get a decent leather or toughened case for your device just incase. Repairs to this unit can be very costly via APPLE.
Technology was supposed to get smaller with age and advancements however due to the larger screens on smart phones, these handsets have gone the other way and got bigger, that can all be forgiven using the impressive 3.5 inch high resolution (960x640) multi touch retina display which is amazing the picture is crisp, text is sharp and the colour is vibrant. The Older IPHONE 3GS with its much lower resolution display, although still a great handset, is completely over taken by the retina display on the IPHONE 4.

The Phone packs too many features to mention but it literally has the potential to do anything, please visit http://www.apple.com/uk/iphone/specs.html
for the full technical run down.
With Support from Apple, NIKE, Tom Tom etc, With Countless free and Paid apps available this isnt just a smart phone this is a tiny pocket sized computer capable of running your life, a replacement for your mobile games console and your mobile media player, you may find yourself lost without it.
Remember though, It still has to function as a mobile phone thats the only major flaw with this device and heres why. The aerials (gsm and wifi) are on the outside of the device depending on how you hold the IPHONE 4, you could create a short with your finger and this will cause the IPHONE to lose its GSM signal (if your on a call when this happens it will drop). Apple tried to prevent this by issuing the bumper cases but Im sure it will be addressed properly with the Next IPhone which will be out Nov 2011
The 32GB Model, which I currently use ,gives you plenty of memory space for all your apps and media
My phone is currently running

In Short, Its a great device, no other smart phone is its equal, Until the IPHONE 5 rears its head later this year.
Summary: Great All in One Device to run your digital life
