Advantages Lastest technology, stylish, ease of use
Disadvantages Siri not fully UK compatable yet
My first iPhone was the 3G not long after it's release date and I loved it. Since then, every upgrade has been for the latest iPhone as I cannot see myself using any other mobile phone. I have owned the 3G, the 3GS and now have the 4S.You will never look at another phone again after having the iPhone, it really is all you need in one sleek, stylish, modern package. It's great for me as I have three jobs so I need to be kept in the loop by email so to have them instantly delivered to my phone is such a convenience. I also use the facebook and twitter applications a lot to keep in the loop with my friends and family, also a great boredom breaker for long journeys!
Appearance -The 4S is more squared than previous iPhones but I like this, it looks more modern. The glass on the front reaches to the edge of the phone so it's well worth getting a case that will protect the corners so that if dropped, your screen doesn't shatter. I have owned iPhones for over 5 years and never cracked a screen but my sister has a few times! It costs approx £25 to get repaired. I opted for the black phone but it is also available in white. It just about fits in the pocket of my jeans but I need to pull it out when I sit down as it's not the smallest of phones! I feel the screen size is just right to be able to enjoy the apps and games to their fullest. The only button on the front screen of the phone is the home button, this has been present since the first iPhone so the design hasn't changed dramatically.
Battery Life -When I first bought it I was worried about the battery life, with all these features as well as being a phone wouldn't it have to be charged every few hours...? No. I was pleasently surprised with the battery life, for the amount of use I have for it in the day I have probably nearly run it down after a full day of use by the night time. Bearing in mind I send and receive a few emails, surf the net, play my music, text quite a lot so I fully charge it each night and the battery lasts me all day.
Apps -There are plenty of games and other applications that you can get for free, or pay for in the App section to make your iPhone more interesting and personalised. It couldn't be easier to download an application, go to the 'app store' via the link on your phone, either type in the search box the name of the application you would like, or if you are just browsing have a look at the top 10 free and paid applications. Once chosen, there is a little tab to click to install when reading about the application, it will then appear on your phone and begin to download wirelessly. Bigger files may need to be downloaded via your computer and transfered to your phone if your Wifi signal isn't strong enough. I have downloaded films wirelessley with ease.
Capacity -Not to mention all the music it can hold, I sold my ipod on eBay after getting the iPhone as you really don't need both and of course you can swap and change the music whenever you like, just hook it up to your computer and Itunes and alter the music on your phone.
