Good: It's small, easy to use and can be used all around the world.
Bad: It doesn't have Siri, even though it is capable.
Comment: Love my iPhone 4, but I would definitely swap it for the 4S without any hesitation.
Good: Retina display, the wealth of apps, design, music player is still the best
Bad: Still tied to iTunes, even if wirelessly, cannot expand memory
Comment: The iPhone 4 still holds its own. I can upgrade now but I am holding out as I really don't see the 4S as being a big enough upgrade to warrant paying out and signing up for another 18 months
Good: retina display, made by apple, a4 chip, aluminium unibody, very slim, fast, greatest number of apps (some of which would qualify as a console worthy game), battery life.
Bad: 5 mega pixel camera, shoots 720p video, doesn't make sausages, not much
Comment: 2nd to the iPhone 4s
Bad: no week-view for calendar, poor design of contacts search
Comment: The calendar is iOS weakest feature - I am amazed it has not been provided with a week-view and a useable month-view
The search button on the contacts page is MUCH too small - half the time I miss it - and this is the single most common operation I do with Contacts
These flaws obviously persist inthe iPhone 4S
Good: retina display
Bad: most things
Comment: behind the time almost 18months old locked in os poor reception also when they first came out the screen had mark on that dissapered after a few days
Good: not much
Bad: can barely make calls
Comment: good : retina display
bad;Calls, screen too small, non removable battery, glass back can crack easy if dropped, icons look so 1990's
Comment: Why would anyone buy a iphone 4 when you can get a contract with a free iphone 4S on contract at no more money than a Nexus?
Comment: IT IS TOO COSTLY, IT HAS SIGNAL PROBLEMS, THE THING IS WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT PHONES R FOR CALLIN AND SENDING MESSAGES BUT THIS PHONE IS **** AT SIGNALS AND THE VOICE SPEECH RECOGNITION FAILS!!!! THE HTC WILDFIRE BEATS THIS PHONE IN MOSTLY EVERY ASPECT OF COMMUNICATIONS LIKE CALLING AND SIGNAL DETECTING. I RESPECT STEVE JOBS, BUT THIS IS JUST A FAILURE, IPHONE 3GS IS BETTER AND MORE FAMOUS, eg. IF U TYPE IN IPHONE MOST PICS R OF THE IPHONE 3GS, PLUS IF U BUY IT FOR GAY NEEKY SHOW-OFF NOOBS, THEY WILL TORTURE U AND THINK THEY R BETTER THAN U BECUZ HE HAS AN IPHONE 4, WELL DONE!!!! DONT BUY THIS PHONE!!!!!!! GET PHONES LIKE THE 'GOOGLE NEXUS PRIME', HTC SENSATION ETC...
Good: Its an apple Phone
Bad: falls short of expected features
Good: nice phone, imense layout and apps, internet is 'you needa keep up' fast, and plus, it looks so stylish! The youtube pause too much, and the camera is awfully good! Honestly, couldn't get better!!!???
Bad: battery life, veryyy verryyydear, too high of a price i actually think its thick. You must have 10 year old girl fingers for this phone, as the touchscreen keyboard is horrific for giant fingers.
Comment: Good phone, i suppose, not a must-have, and i wouldn't recommend it. As the price if over £400. and on pay as you go, still wouldn't be the cheapest. My ipod touch 4 is dearer than my phone. I descreased! Too dear, not worth it, if it broke, its much, much money to get fixed, breaks to easily, and just scrapes like sin! Horrifiic. Don't get !
