I have been an iPhone user for the last three years.  I skipped the 3Gs upgrade but recently purchased the iPhone 4.  Here are my notes:

1. The iPhone 4 is noticeably faster than the 3G

2. The screen is noticeably crisper and higher resolution.

3. The multi tasking is really nice.  Listening to Pandora while checking e-mail is something they should have had years ago, but I am still thrilled to get it now.  Just this morning I listened to Pandora while also have MapMyRide going in the background for my morning bike ride.

4. The battery life seems to be much better. Currently on 82% and I have it one all day.

5. Synching with Outlook seems to be slightly faster and smoother. I have 15,000 e-mails in my inbox and the only way to synch them is to synch all e-mails, not just the past few weeks.  The same for my calendar.  Does anyone know why this is the case? The old iPhone would occasionally delete all my e-mails and resynch them which was a huge pain.

6. The video is totally cool.  I know this is not new for those that upgraded to 3Gs but I can already tell I am going to be abel to capture priceless memories with the video.

7. The camera has zoom, flash and higher megapixels.  Quite nice!  Zoom is pretty grainy but I will take the improvements.

8.  The form factor is slimmer and feels great.  Very very solid.

9. The address book lookup is much faster which is a huge relief to me.  It used to be when I typed an e-mail it would take 30 seconds to look up the e-mail address because i have a very large (7000+) address book. Now it happens much quicker. Makes me very happy.

10. A complaint thus far is that when I was at the Sox/Cubs game last night  the phone get very hot and the battery started to drain.  I turned it off and on a few times, but I have a sneaking feeling that something was going on with the network being overloaded the phone.

11.  My last complaint is that the phone does not fail over from Wifi to 3G very well.  My WiFi in my house was down today and the phone kept trying to connect through WiFi rather than the 3G.  When I shut off WiFi it worked like a charm.

I have been an iphone user since it came out in June of 2007. Since my birthday is on the same month, my husband sees to it to buy me the new iphone every year on my birthday. I'm actually satisfied with all the iphones I had in the last couple of years. Before it came out this year, the iphone 4 already had a lot of people drooling over it. Unfortunately, it came up short of what the people expected. One major problem was the drop calls. I personally noticed it when, after purchasing the iphone, I made a call to a friend of mine and she couldn't hear me, then all of a sudden, the call dropped. I dialed a second time and the same thing happened. It was only the next day that I found out it was an anthenna issue. I got my free bumber from apple a couple of weeks ago and I'm not having those drop calls anymore. With email, ipod, a good camera, and all these apps, free apps, mind you, I think the iphone 4 is a great smart phone for everyone.lready had a lot of people drooling over it.
