"A great phone!"on by BoHuot
Pros Size. Perfect size. Screen and entire phone.
Battery Life. Not an all day-n-play lifespan, but a solid 10 hours worth.
Apps. There's an app for everything!
Ease of Use. really easy to use even if you're new to apple products.
Cons Product is easy to scratch and is a finger print magnet!
Only available in 3G.
Summary I went from having a Blackberry Bold to HTC Thunderbolt and practically wanted to throw the Thunderbolt out the window because of having a heck of time typing with the all touch screen. I actually went back to the Blackberry Bold after a week of Android torture!Another great thing about the iPhone. It can fully integrate with Apple TV and other apple devices!
My wife purchased the Apple iPhone for me when Sprint finally made it available. I'll admit, I was a skeptic again and was already planning on returning. However, since day one, I could not be more happier with this phone! The operating system is solid. I don't have to worry about downloading viruses from the app store or rebooting every 4 hours. Web browsing is incredible on wi-fi.
Would highly recommend this phone to everyone. Have already recommended the phone to friends and family and each and every one of them have nothing but praise.

Pros The iPhone has exceeded expectations. The camera is first rate matches any point and shoot and is always in your pocket. The screen is easy on the eyes. Personalizing took minutes. Sprint's unlimited data rocks. An unexpected must have tool at work.
Cons Sprint is work in progress. They need to expand coverage and AT&T can have 4G why not Sprint?
Battery life needs improvement
Summary Switched to a smart phone because of huge slow down and data to big for phone messages kept coming on my otherwise fine Sony phone. Had unlimited Data plan for years on AT&T only to be told it was the wrong one for a iPhone upgrade. Data was the problem for the old phone how is one to know how much data one is going to use once the upgrade happens. AT&T is right that most of the time Wi-Fi can be used. The question still remains as to just how much outside of Wi-Fi the effect is going to be when the reason for the change was file to large for old phone was the big issue. AT&T says most people won"t use more then 2Gs. Now they change and are going to charge more for 3Gs. Sprint is no brainer. It works most places and they are aware enough of coverage issues and have permanent solution in the works and workable work arounds until they happen. They are also much cheaper.
The iPhone 4s has become a must have tool. Setting it up to work for you is easy. Working in the medical field I am finding many uses for it. Translating, using Facetime to troubleshoot equipment problems, and timed exams. It is that camera you wish you had when something happens with no loss of quality. Beats the old magazines you find in doctor or car service waiting rooms. You really don't know how you are are going to use it until you have it. Grandchilren and Facetime. Sprint and the iPhone is a good marriage. Will get better as time goes on.
Pros It's an iphone enough said. Screen and camera are great.
Cons Sprint is a disappointment.
Summary I have terrible service in an area where I should decent service. I often fluctuate between 1 and 2 bars and calls are often dropped. I have to walk around my neighborhood to have a conversation. I have now called Sprint 6 or 7 times and they assured me the problem would be resolved but it still persists. Data speeds are also lacking. Sprint has offered an airwave but I would have to pay an activation fee. Very disappointed. If I could do it again I'd go with ATT or Verizon and pay a little more for networks that actually work.
Pros SIRI, fast operating speeds, no need to reset daily like Android, biggest app store, no battery sucking 4G
Cons Battery life, home button feels loose now that it's no longer built into the frame of the phone
Summary I have owned all 5 iPhones and each one keeps getting better. They add features that seem like something ahead of their time or things you might not want or need. I wasn't sure if Siri and slightly improved specs were enough to upgrade from the iPhone 4. But once you get comfortable using Siri you will use it on an almost daily basis.The iPhone 4S is the perfect smartphone - until the next version comes out. Getting a little tired of Sprints coverage issues in the Detroit Metro region - but not Apple's problem. Great phone, only a decent carrier.
The phone is super fast and blow away thoswe Android phones that need to be reset every couple days to ensure they keep running. I haven't turned my iPhone 4s off in over a month and it's still running as fast as the day I took it out of the box!
I had an Android phone and needed anti-virus and app-killing apps. The iPhone suffers from neither of those issues and is the most user-friendly product on the market. If you have common-sense you can figure out how to use Apple products quickly. I had my Android for 3 months and still didn't understand how to do some simple tasks.
Apple products may cost slightly more than the competition but it's worth the cost.
-No virus issues
-No slowdown in performance based on how many apps you have open or length of time since last reset
-Great accessories (Apple TV, wireless printing w/ HP, wireless sync, iTunes store)
-Biggest app store
-One operating system with easy upgrades (Anroid has 2.2, 2.3, 3.2, 4.0 and it's difficult to upgrade when a new version comes out and some companies don't offer upgrade ability)
