“Just as good as expected.”

Written on: 30/12/2011

iPhone is fantastic. It's now an extension of my right hand! I had an iPod Touch so I knew what to expect, of course as it's a phone it could be a bit annoying with the short battery life... but that's life with smartphones. Also I don't know if I imagined this but it feels like the battery life is actually improving?! Bought from PhoneShop.co.uk who got me the deal with internet included and just 50 minutes and 100 texts as I don't hardly make any calls! Slightly nervous about having a 24… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/09/2010 by fionamaccoll (7 reviews written)

I have the iPhone 3GS on Vodafone and absolutely LOVE it...it took me a while to get used to the touch screen but now I would be lost without it. One down side is the battery life - it does need charged every day.

A bit of advice for Vodafone iPhone customers - the default WAP (mobile data settings) are incorrect. This doesn't matter if you have 3G coverage, however if you do not have 3G coverage in your area, the internet access will be painfully slow, if it works at all. The mobile data… Read Full Review

After being a long time fan of the Sony Ericssons / Ericssons for almost 10+ years I thought..ahh what the heck they look pretty cool and if they do what they say it can then count me in. Very impressed with its speed, coverage and connectivity. The new update IOS $ or somethign like that made it run alot smoother and putting things in folders is simple fix but makes it alot better phone.
Great features and tones of apps. Get one!… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/06/2010 by janeburt (2 reviews written)

I got my Apple iPhone last year and I've really enjoyed it. I love the apps and have really gotten attached to the ones I've uploaded to mine. You can get balances on your credit cards, bank account, keep up with Twitter, Facebook, play Uno, Texas Hold 'Em AND take great pictures and videos... all in this little device. Mine has held up well. No scratches or anything. The screen has to be cleaned pretty frequently, but I like that it's glass, it's a much clearer view I think. I have had a… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/04/2010 by BusyMother (2 reviews written)

Seems like there's no turning back once you've started using Apple iPhone. I had a 2G before and I've recently upgraded to 3Gs. I'd recommend an upgrade for 3 major reasons:

1. Email -- I don't stay in the office most of the time and the email feature is very important to me. 3Gs downloads email much faster and works much better with the push features.

2. Map -- It can locate where I'm and can give me driving direction. It's basically a GPS and I can't go anywhere without a GPS!

Written on: 31/03/2010 by PrepaidCardreview (5 reviews written)

The iPhone is a device that will divide people for sure; excellent application support and tons of application for you to use - however the cost can be slightly prohibitive and the contract lengths by which you have sign up for in the UK are a little excessive. Overall and excellent piece of kit - finance apart!… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/03/2010 by markbt14 (7 reviews written)

Before the iPhone I never used anything but a Nokia. I hesitated for a while but it is true that once you have the iPhone it becomes your communication hub. The key points for me are its reliability (I have not had a single crash), accuracy and responsiveness of the touch-screen (even with my broad fingers), easier than I thought to carry in the pocket and its simplicity. Only downside is battery life but charging every night is a small price to pay for having a mobile office in your pocket. No… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2010 by rhysadams (2 reviews written)

I am now on the Apple iPhone 3GS and had this one on the Orange Network. I had my 3G on the O2 network. They did me a fantastic deal and although I had to pay for my phone, I managed to get the same amount as Bill Credit and I kept my loyalty discount and text bundle for nothing... So for £28 per month, it works out cheaper than 02 plus I now get coverage at home, but patchy in the office.
The phone is a hell of a lot quicker than the 3G, and where I would wait a few seconds for it to do… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2010 by rogercavanagh (2 reviews written)

I love my iPhone. It works well and there are some great apps that I use: some daily, many regularly.

The cons are:

- the cost. But what do you expect from Apple?
- the O2 coverage is variable - not the phone's fault
- the battery life, which is dismal. It's not a big problem for me because 90% of the time I work at client sites with my MacBook Pro able to keep the phone topped up, but for anyone using the iPhone a lot on the move during the day extra juice would be needed… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2010 by islabucasgrande (1 review written)

I had this phone as a gift on my graduation day. I was hobbled at first in view of my being not so tech savvy but was amazed to see how it teaches me to appreciate the internet world. I can even surf while answering a call and that eventually made me fall into the realm of fantasy.

Now, I am being introduced to the limitless possibilities of knowing the world around me. Thanks to this phone, it has pulled me out from reality box where i previously have been put in.

Learning from this phone… Read Full Review

Hand's down the best phone you can own. Once you have stumped up the cash you never regret it.

User ability is incredibly good, its the easiest thing in the world to use. Its stable, its works and it does stuff I could of only imagined.

Don't worry about which phone to buy, just get the best and forget the rest… Read Full Review
