"really unimpressed"1.0 starson by newguy5
Pros: faster than 3g, not much faster than 3gs. sleek looking design (doesn't feel very comfortable though)
Cons: terrible reception. apple is lying about something. the bumper case will not work with any aux input except standard apple headphones. the bumper case has too much rubber that prevents a standard AUX cord from plugging into the iphone.
Summary: fast...not lightening fast as reviewers explain though. barely, barely, and i mean barely faster than the 3gs. you would not notice the difference unless you compare the two side by side and navigate them simultaneously to see which opens a program faster. the battery did seem to be better but it is not a huge percentage better. the resolution is nice, but again, it's really not breathtaking or anything. gotta say, even in the "pro" section, besides a body change, it really is not a huge difference in the 3gs model.
i had the phone on opening day and returned it today. i dropped 90% of my calls. most of them were from my home. every time i touched the outer antenna, within about 30 seconds i went from 5 bars of coverage to none or "searching" status. many times in texting (because i would still touch the antenna), i would get "could not activate cellular network." i bought a case as some people have suggested to do to fix the problem. well the case didn't work either. it simply doesn't like the fingertip touch. i've tried touching different areas and no matter where i touch, if i touch the antenna at all i lose bars rapidly. apple has said it's a software problem...nope. i don't drop a single call with my 3g on os4. it's clearly a design flaw and apple does not know how to fix it.
lastly i'm just going to add that apple keeps saying they are going to put out a software update in a few weeks. please realize this is a ploy to keep you from returning your iphone for a return credit. they may put out an update, but it probably won't help, and it certainly will be past the time you needed to return it for your money back. they also tried to charge me a restocking fee and i ******* at them for this. i've never been swayed by the politics of which network is better, blah blah nonsense, but apple has almost done it to me now, and i just might move on from ATT after this. big thumbs down steve jobs.
