I got this phone 2 weeks after it came out in 2010 and have had it since then. I have been absolutely thrilled with it and am now an avid fan of all Apple products who is eagerly awaiting the iPhone 5.
I bought this phone as I wanted a new iPod as well as a smartphone. This is one of the best things about the iPhone as while many of its features can be found in other products at a cheaper price, most people have all their music in an iTunes account and they can make a saving by only buying one product rather than a Blackberry or HTC and an iPod. It's also easier to carry one product than two.
I had been worried about the screen smashing but this has not been a problem. I have dropped it onto hard surfaces at least twenty times with no ill effects. Of course it is not bulletproof and I know a number of people who have smashed the screen but as long as you use common sense you won't have a problem.
The apps are fantastic and there literally is something for everything. I use it for Facebook an awful lot and this is always improving.
The user interface is great and totally intuitive. I have struggled to get my head around Blackberry's and HTC's but anyone could use an iPhone.
Of course it isn't perfect and I have found the iMessage facility to be pretty awful at times with messages not being sent without me knowing and left wondering why I haven't received a reply. This one area where the Blackberry wins. Battery life can leave something to be desired although by reducing the screen brightness, turning off WiFi and GPS, you can get a few days out of it. For most people this won't be a problem and there are many products available to supplement the internal battery.
I have used the iPhone 4s and would say don't bother paying the extra and get this 4 or wait for the 5. Siri is a fad and rarely works.
Summary: Nothing else combines a phone, a satnav, a games console and a music player so well. Worth it
