iPhone 4 first impressions

Uncategorised By Aug 09, 2010

My iPhone 4 32Gb has arrived and is installed and working.  What an amazing hassle.  Vodafone managed to make the experience difficult and time consuming.

It’s working and with a Incipio Feather case the antenna problem isn’t that significant even though I hold my phone in my left hand.

The plusses are: a fabulous screen, it’s fast and mail using Exchange Server no longer slows it to a apparent halt.

The negatives are: it doesn’t fit so well or confidently in my hand, I’m struggling to get a screen protector to fit properly and I don’t like the look of it as much as my 3G. I also have a problem syncing the address book with my Parrot CK3200 Bluetooth hands free in the car. Parrot tend to be slow with updates so I’ll just have to wait I guess.

I’m certain the radical looks were the reasons for the ‘accidental’ leaks to ensure the general feeling on launch day wasn’t URGHH.

As a mobile phone is for me a mobile email device with a phone for convenience it’s ideal.  Just not as enjoyable an experience as when I first got my 3G.
