So it's been 30 Days since I received my iPhone 4 from Apple. While upgrading iPhone hardware is not always as exciting as switching to a new platform, Apple has really made a significant jump from the 3GS to make this hardware update exciting enough. I would like to share with you my thoughts on some of the ups and downs of being an iPhone 4 owner over the course of my 1st month of ownership.
1) The hardware is beautiful. 2) It is resistant to cosmetic wear and tear from casual use. (unlike the previous 2 versions made with plastic and chrome trim) 3) The updated camera takes some amazing photos. 4) The retina display is unmatched.
The Downs: 1) iOS 4.0 on this iPhone is less than stellar in terms of stability. (even more so than a 3GS running 4.0) 2) I have dropped a few more calls on average than with my previous iPhones. 3) I continue to have bad Bluetooth connection issues.
Overall, am I satisfied with the upgrade? Yes. Would I recommend it to my friends and family? Yes. Is it my best smartphone experience to date? Yes.
In two words? Get one!
