Advantages: Easy to use and a lot of great features.
Disadvantages: Easily breakable!
I "converted" to the iPhone about 6 months ago from HTC (after swearing that I never would!) and I think it is the best decision I have made in a long while. I originally had the iPhone 3gs as this was a replacement for a faulty handset from Vodafone, and managed to upgrade to the 4S a few months after.
I cannot compare the 4S to the 4, but I have heard it is much the same apart from a few added extras.
The phone is really easy to use with a user friendly interface, and is easy to get started with by just plugging into your PC and following the instructions. It will back up to your PC every time you connect it so you don't have to worry too much about losing all of your photo's, etc. The battery life is good compared to what I am used to, it easily lasts the whole day as long as you are not on it constantly! I will always carry a spare charger around with me though just in case.
The iPod section of the phone is just as easy to use as the actual iPod, using the same interface as iTunes to keep things familiar. The sound is good if you find the right earphones, I do find the ones supplied are not the best, I would advise investing in some of a better quality.
When I heard about Siri on the new 4S I thought it was a brilliant idea but I do find that I hardly use it, and find it just as easy to type into Google or scroll through my phone book myself! It either can't understand me or doesn't know what I'm going on about!
I do find the actually handset is comfortable to hold and use, but I would advise getting a protective cover as I will imagine the slightest knock will leave scratches.
Overall I am impressed with the iPhone, and it will take something huge to get me to use anything but an iPhone in future.
Summary: One of the best handsets around.
