I've had my iPhone 4 for nearly a month now, and coming from a Nokia E71, its a huge step up.
I found the inital switch between no touchscreen and suddenly having to do just about everything with a touchscreen a bit of a change of style of course, but it's an incredibly intuitive phone to use and the touchscreen is very responsive. The retina display is tremendously clear as well, a noticeable difference from the 3G/S models. It's a very durable screen too, after lots of use over the past few… Read Full Review

The phone is pretty good, but when you consider what else you can get for the same money (or much less) from other manufacturers such as HTC, the iphone 4 does not look good. The signal problem has plauged my phone since the day I bought it as well which is not so good.
I also do not like the fact you cannot get unlimited data plan deals for the phone as it is designed to be used with the interet and yet unlike the competition such as the HTC desire you cannot get an unlimited plan. The only… Read Full Review

Overall this is a great phone, a stylish, practical and very useful phone. I can do anything, from chatting with my friends, to playing games, to even scanning and printing documents and would recommend it to anyone. The only problems are the antenna issues which I solved by fitting a case and the price which is high, but the phone is worth the price… Read Full Review

Not sure really what to make of the hype with the Iphone 4. Out of the box it already looks dated and features of high end mobiles are missing. However it is good quality product which was purchase from the Netherlands factory unlocked
Annoyingly it does not work straight out of the box! You need to download Itunes and install on your computer (assuming you have one or at least access) and then register the phone. There appears to be no other way!
No signal issue at all though!
A well… Read Full Review

Another stupendous from Apple. Apple never ceases to amaze its customers. The Interface is good, with a good screen. Not sure whether it stands tall against the AMOLED Screen from certain Samsung/HTC Phones.
The Device is prone to scratches. Apple should consider giving scratch guards along with the Phone, atleast for those who pay a good price for unlocked phones.
The problem with the DEATH GRIP was a farce.
Apple should consider TV out function like certain Nokias, perhaps that will… Read Full Review

I think I m one of the unlucky iphone owners. A combination of poor signal (south manchester) and the design of the phone means that i can only get one bar reception at the window of my lounge and I can not move. my mobile network has advised that I m in a strong signal area with a couple of masts close by. If I could resolve the reception issue I would 100% love - the real test with be a planned visit to the Lakes. Love the idea that the phone searches for Wifi and logs into your home wifi… Read Full Review

2 days in... Love the phone. I'm an iphone virgin but now have the iphone 4 and i am offically in love. I cannot for the life of me figure out what this signal problem is, but I don't hold my phone in weird positions?! Its so pretty and the screen is exceptional it's better than my laptop!! I love being able to chat on the phone, send a message and use facebook at the same time plus if the phone call is dull plenty of things to play with!! The battery life is not the best I have ever had infact… Read Full Review

I have had one for a few weeks now and I think it's amazing. My friends have android phones and although (do not tell the) some of there Google apps look better, the overall package is amazing. I've upgraded from a 3GS and the transition was simple. But to be honest apart from the shape there is not a great deal differently.
One thing that gets me is with the free cover none of my old docks work including the one in the car!… Read Full Review

Having had a Nokia N95 for a couple of years, then flirting with the N97 (which I returned after 2 weeks) I then moved onto a seemingly fantastic HTC HD2.
After a few months I realised the HD2 lacked in a few key areas, such as keyboard accuracy and a massive lack of apps to download.
So, finally, I took the plunge and bought the Apple Iphone 4.
I'm 2 weeks into ownership and I must say its absolutely fantastic.
Hardware-wise its not a massive difference from the HTC HD2, however, the… Read Full Review

Great for apps but terrible as a phone. Going from a BlackBerry, I was overwhelmed with all the apps and loved them! It's hard going back to any other phone after having soooo many choices! The bad is that it consistently drops calls; not sure if it's the phone or AT&T (horrible service provider). I'm just confused, why doesn't Skype support the camera!? That would be the only way I would make calls!… Read Full Review

So far, I haven't been disappointed. I never had the iPhone 3Gs, and going from the 3G to the 4 is like night and day. SO much faster when browsing, emailing or switching apps.
The image quality really is outstanding, and the screen itself seems very robust - no scratches yet, front or back. I haven't really had facetime working properly, so I can't comment on that. Battery life significantly improved.
Only real gripe is network coverage, but that's down to 02. I have tested Orange as an… Read Full Review

Quite simply - it's amazing.
I have not experienced the reception issues. The quality of the screen is incredible and video calling my girlfriend is the best.
I still feel done over on the rates - but ultimately, I'm a sucker for the iPhone and will pay to have one… Read Full Review

I was lucky enough to get the new iPhone4 on the launch date without queuing, and it is everything you would expect from Apple, easy to use etc and the so called antenna problem hasn't affected me yet, don't know what the fuss is all about unless it is jealousy from other smart phone manufacturers as they struggle in the wake of Apple. Don't be put off by having to wait for one, it's worth it… Read Full Review

Apples version 4 of its handset and OS4 rate highly with me - As a long standing hater of anything Apple I have always signed up for smartfones of the Symbian and Windows variety. Both of which are Al right but always let me down in the constantly working and reliable stakes. Apples iPhone 4 is beautifully designed - albeit a bit slippery to handle and JUST WORKS. everything does what its supposed to. Unlike my forays into N97 and hTc HD2 which although nice phones they score a mere 50% versus… Read Full Review

I got hold of the new iPhone 4, on launch day after queuing up from 0230 and waiting 7 hours for the o2 shop to open I was the first one in the shop, I can honestly say that this phone is the best phone I have ever had, and I've had all 4 versions of the iPhone now, the antenna issue is not an issue to me, for starters I'm right handed, but even when I held the phone in my left hand and got the bars to drop, I was still able to make and receive crystal clear calls, so as far as I'm concerned… Read Full Review

The 4th incarnation of apple iPhone has arrived, and with a record number of pre-orders, and a shattering opening sales record, what's all the fuss about.
Since, the 3Gs, there have been a number of changes and new features. The first thing one will notice is the overall shape of the phone. It's more box like than before, and thinner. This comes about due to changes in the internal electronics. While making the processor chip smaller, the battery was enlarged, causing the best battery life of… Read Full Review

So, this morning my iphone 4 turned up, and I cant describe how good it is. I have not had an iphone before, not being an apple fan boy I haven't rushed to get the previous ones. I do have an ipod touch, and I love the user interface, the app store and the general feel of the product.
Having only had it a day, I have yet to see if it has any issues, but we all know about the antenna problem. so I did a few tests, and yeah, if you really try to cover the antenna, you can get the number of bars… Read Full Review

"This changes everything, again" - for weeks this has been the headline displayed on the Apple website, but does this come with any truth, and more importantly, if you own a 3GS is it worth the upgrade?
Firstly I would say that if you own a 3GS, have no need for HD recording and aren't super rich, then it's probably not worth upgrading.
That's not to say this isn't an amazing piece of kit. The renowned iPhone comes with a new shell, which is slick-looking; personally I… Read Full Review

As usual you gotta love Apple, don't have any problems with signal when holding it so don't know quite what people are doing with their iPhones for this to happen, maybe they should be allowed to buy one.
Great phone cant fault it, BUY ONE NOW!… Read Full Review
