"No LED indicator light?!?!"3.5 starson by lambiel
Pros: Crisp and extremely responsive screen. This is most definitely the best touch screen I have ever used. I can see why no physical keyboard is necessary. Sure you can type much faster on a physical keyboard, but it's becoming archaic and obsolete.
Cons: No indicator light! I have never owned a cell phone with no indicator light. My Star Tac 15 years ago had one...15 years ago!
Summary: Not such a smart smartphone. I am convinced that people who call this device "the king of smartphones" have never owned other smartphones. Other than the lack of an essential feature, voice quality is comparable to my Droid minus constantly hanging up on people and dialing random numbers due to the sensor not sensing me on a call. Since I mainly use my phone for business, it was getting a little embarrassing.After 3 months of using the iPhone4, I can say with certainty that I fully regret using my upgrade for this overrated phone. My biggest issue, except those I have already mention, pertains to the iPhone speaker.
Great for playing games, but I graduated from college years ago.
Great for listening to music, but I need to conserve my battery to avoid having to charge the phone through the day, since I can't carry around an extra battery pack as I did with my Droid.
I have to constantly turn on the phone to see if I have missed any calls, emails, or SMS. No customizable chime to remind me that I have missed these either; and NO, THERE IS NO APP FOR THIS!
So if this feature is as important to you as it is to most smartphone users, I'd hold out for the iphone 5, which is rumored to come with an indicator light -- how innovative.

The speaker is so small that if I lightly place my finger over it, the sound becomes extremely low and muffled. So if any little thing in your bag obstructs the tiny little grain of rice sized speaker, you won't hear a thing.
If you've never owned a smartphone or you're just an iFan, the iPhone is a good start. If you're a serious smartphone user, don't fall for all the hype.
