Advantages great camera, Siri, easy to use
Disadvantages may be abit expensive
I first decided to buy a new phone when my old phone (the Samsung taco light) got dropped in a puddle and stopped working. I decided quite a long time ago that I wanted to buy a smart phone but always thought I would get the use out of my own phone first.When searching for a new phone, I took a walk down to the O2 shop to look at what they had on offer, I decided that I wanted an iPhone as afew of my friends have the iPhone 3GS and they say it is really handy for opening email, that there are a few great apps on it and also their internet on their phone was always much quicker than my taco light phone.
I bought the iPhone 4s with 16GB memory on a 24 month contract, because I am already an O2 customer, I got the iPhone for free (on a deal saving a one off £49.99) as I took out a 900mins and unlimited texts 24 month contract, on this contract I will pay £36.00 per month until the 24 months are up. I thought that this was quite a good price for me as I normally top up around £30 per month anyway as I use my phone a lot so I am really only paying around £6 a month more than usual to get the phone. You can buy this phone in either white or black, I bought the black phone as unfortunately there were no white ones available in store when I bought it and I did not want to wait for a white one to come in.The iPhone 4s is great, the first thing that I noticed about this phone is that I can access the internet anywhere that I have O2 signal, the 3G coverage is great, especially compared to my old phone though it would probably be unfair to make this kind of comparison as my old phone cost me only £80. To access the internet outside wifi areas its best to buy an internet bolt on from O2 as it can be very expensive otherwise and could end up in you racking up a high bill monthly.
The interface on the iPhone is really easy to get a hang of, using the touch screen is really simple, and typing in messages or into the internet you can either use a qwerty keyboard on the screen, this is great as I think it makes texting a lot quicker than the original number keypad way to enter text into a phone. The interface is also great as it puts all the important things that you may need on your phone in one place, your email, texts, phone calls, iPod, calendar, pictures, camera, clock and notes and internet can all be seen and accessed on one screen at one touch of a button, this cuts down the time it takes to do these tasks on your phone and anything that saves time is ok by me.The battery on this phone isnt great, however my friend assures me its better than his iPhone 3GS. If I use the features on this phone alot e.g. the iPod and surfing the internet quite alot in that day, then the battery would need charged about once a day, if I am not using the apps that much during the day then it may last for about a day and a half, I am comparing this to my old phone the samsung taco light, its battery used to last almost 3 days usually, however the taco light didnt have half the features that the iPhone has so its a good trade up in my opinion anyway.
