The iphone was announced about 5 month ago, but they didn't let us know a lot about the device. Before the release all we could say about it is that its pretty and easy to use.Now we can tell you everything about it.
If you didn't buy the iPhone yet, I would recommend you to wait until the price goes down because right now the 4gb version cost 499$ and the 8gb version goes for 599$.
The iPhone has a brilliant display, no external antenna and its lack of buttons puts it in the best design class. You'll be a "pimp" with this phone on you. The measures are 4.5 inches by 2.4 inches by 0.46 inch. It fits comfortably in the hand and when held to the ear. I like that the display is glass instead of plastic.
The iPhone's display is the handset's design showpiece and is noteworthy for not only what it shows, but also how you use it. We'll start off with its design. At a generous 3.5 inches, the display takes full advantage of the phone's size, while its 480x320 pixel resolution (160 dots per inch) translates into brilliant colors, sharp graphics, and fluid movements.
In the Apple, iPhone's menu looks great with unique style. Its very easy to find all the features.
I thought that the touch screen will be hard to use, but its actually very reliable and easy to use function. I never seen touch screens better than on iPhone.
Unfortunately, the iPhone does not have a battery that a user can replace. It supposed to last for about 3 years and cost of replacing will be about 75$
The iPhone's phone book is limited only by the phone's available memory. Each contact holds eight phone numbers; e-mail, Web site, and street addresses; a job title and department; a nickname; a birthday; and notes. You can't save callers to groups, but you can store your preferred friends to a favorites menu for easy access. You can assign contacts a photo for caller ID and assign them one of 25 polyphonic ringtones. There's no voice dialing and you can't use MP3 files as ringtones. Other basic features include an alarm clock, a calculator, a world clock, a stopwatch, a timer and a notepad.
Bluetooth and wireless
The iPhone offers a full range of wireless functionality with support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Wi-Fi compatibility is especially welcome, and a feature that's absent on far too many smart phones. When you're browsing the Web, the iPhone automatically searches for the nearest Internet hot spot. Bluetooth 2.0 is also on board, which delivers faster transmission and a longer range than Bluetooth 1.2. You can use Bluetooth for voice calls.
Messaging and e-mail
The iPhone offers text messaging and e-mail. As on most smart phones, a text message is displayed as one long conversation. Apple doesn't include multimedia messaging. Sure, you can use e-mail to send photos, but without multimedia messaging you can't send photos to other cell phones--pretty much the entire point of a camera phone.
The iPhone's e-mail menu has support for Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, and Mac accounts. You can read--but not edit--PDF, JPEG, Word, and Excel documents. Sucks: you can't cut and paste text when composing messages.
To this I will just say that the ipod is pretty good. I liked the video and audio quality, but don't buy the phone only because of ipod. Its not worth it.
I think they could do better than that. The speaker phone is too quiet. The volume is too low. But its not so bad. You can still hear in a loud area. I just think that they need to make it better.

This is the new function for smartphones. Now you can browse through websites in html format, just like on mac or pc. The only problem is that it does not support Flash or Java.
The YouTube on iPhone works perfect. The only thing that I didn't like is that its impossible to read the comments.
The iPhones photo quality is great. It doesn't have night mode, flash, but the 2 megapixels delivers a great quality.The photo menu is attractive and easy to use.
Activation was easy using iTunes. For best results run live update on your iTunes.
The Apple iPhone battery life is 8 hours talk time, 24 hours of music playback, 7 hours of video playback, and 6 hours on Internet use. The standby time is 10.4 days.
Great display, a sleek design.
Easy to use Safari.
Not good call quality.
