I got this phone for my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I have never loved a phone more than this one! I knew I wanted an iPhone because I have been told by many different people that they are very reliable and apparently the best phone out there. You can purchase it in black or white and I got given a white one which is what I wanted. They don't come in other colours but in my opinion if you want a coloured iPhone you could buy a cheap case from Amazon or something like I did with my iPod touch.
I was worried about what the camera quality would be like because I LOVE taking picture when I'm out and I use my phone for that more than a camera. I guess this is just because I take my phone out already so I don't need to take a separate gadget with me. There are also a lot of editing tricks you can do with the pictures and there are so many apps that involve editing and filtering pictures. I especially recommend Instagram, as you can share your pictures with your friends a bit like twitter.
One of the applications I use most is the calendar that comes on the phone. I love being able to keep on track with what I'm doing and be able to remember things that I'm doing without having to keep notes elsewhere. This is so useful to me because my friends are always complaining about me being late to meet them! (Usually because I forget the time).
The actual messaging and calling is really good because I love being able to see my previous messages with people all in one long thread. I had this on my last phone (HTC Wildfire) as well, so I didn't want to lose that feature with my new phone.
I have also found that since I have had my iPhone I have used my emails a lot more - it's so easy just being able to click a button and look at all my emails, replying and organising them into files. You can enter your email that you have previously made on line and it will let you access it on your mobile. Of course you have to have connection to the internet as you have to with a lot of the phone's features so I wouldn't recommend buying the phone without purchasing a contract with internet.
The battery life is better than the iPod touch one because recently I have found that Apple products aren't the greatest for battery life. This battery lasts around 2 days when using it for me, so it has a decent amount of time on it.
I think a big worry for a lot of people is the screen being too small to read off of, but if this is the case the text size can be altered in settings or you can hold down with your finger over text and a magnifying glass comes up so you can move it around and see the text larger. You can also highlight words for the iPhone to read out to you by selecting the 'speak' button when highlighted.
Overall, I love my iPhone 4S and I think it is just perfect for taking with you everywhere - It's like my best friend! Thanks for reading :)
Summary: useful and like a best friend!
