"Disappointing - As A Phone."3.0 starson by Airbus300
Pros: -- Touchpad interface
-- Good wi-fi
-- Screen brightness adaptability in various ambient light.
Cons: -- As a phone, people have said my calls break up a lot with 2 bars.
-- A bit heavy.
-- Battery depletes more quickly if you don't have it set up properly - power management.
Summary: Overall, I have to say I am disappointed in some aspects of this (iPhone 4) phone's performance. Especially since I have had Verizon Wireless for a long time now and I have been generally quite happy with them as a whole. Expect that this phone with weaker signal's in some coverage's areas will break up and your calling receiver might complain about YOU "breaking up". I've always heard them though just fine. Also, the call may just drop entirely. I can understand Consumer Reports NOT recommending this phone. It is really an Apple iPad or mini Apple laptop in disguise of which it does that really well. I do like the many, unlimited apps that one could use limited by its memory capacity. The wi-fi is great. It is fast with the internet overall. I also just previous to this iPhone 4, had LG's (Dare & EnV Touch) and they were much much better at hanging onto a weaker signal call in my home and so on. Consider this if you really find the need for better phone calling reliability vs. as a mini laptop. Hopefully, Apple will do better will it's next successor the 5 version this fall?
