"Not Ready for Prime Time"2.0 starson by mrdoon
Pros: Bright and crisp display, decent camera (with flash), excellent music player, tons of apps - in short, it's still an iPhone.
Cons: buggy proximity sensor, hyper-sensitive microphone, limitations of "Face Time" app, and Apple's refusal to admit that there are legitimate problems with this version of the iPhone
Summary: So many people got caught up in the fuss about the antenna that they failed to see (and report about) the larger problems with this phone. For me, it was repeated problems the proximity sensor not activating and hanging up, pausing, muting, texting, etc. during phone calls. Despite the fact that Apple claimed that they fixed the issue with a software update, I continued to have problems even after updating my software, resetting my phone, and swapping it out for a different phone. In addition, despite being told that the new iPhone 4 has a microphone that "uses sophisticated audio technology to suppress unwanted background noise", I was told on multiple occasions that the phone picked up everything (rustling paper, ice clanking in my glass, etc.) that it was impossible to continue with the call. Ultimately, I decided to return my new iPhone 4 and reactivate my 3Gs. I am typically a fan of Apple products and I wish I could say that I loved my new phone but, unfortunately, that was not the case.
