This is the phone you want!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Apple iPhone 4 - 32GB - Black Smartphone

If you want the best in mobile phones, this is your best choice. Trust me I've looked around read the reviews on latest phones out now, & the iPhone 4 is at the very top!

BTW I have the WHITE iPhone 4 not the black one. It looks stunning! This is my first iphone, as I vowed before I would never splash out that much money on a phone, but you pay for quality I guess. Holding it, it feels strong...it has a good weight on it that reflects the sturdy casing of 'Engineered Glass' (Apple says the same glass used on helicopters & high speed trains & 30 times stronger than plastic!) & Stainless Steel. Looks wise, its one sexy but classy phone!
Yes the iPhone 5 is coming out later this year, but this design is brilliant, how much better can it be other than a few tweeks to the internal specs?

Easy to setup via itunes, download all the apps you want, sync your music, sim contacts, email etc. 5 megapixel cam is fine but not exactly the best around. Retina display...wow (yes I was also trying to look for this pixels).
I love the new earphones with the volume control & mic.

I'm quite the picky consumer & like to do my homework on what is out there in the market, & after a month of searching I stubbornly gave in and bought the iPhone 4, it is the best you will find right now! (22/9/11) :D
I recommend you get the WHITE one as more than 50% of iphone owners have the black one, white stands out more.
Also to protect your precious spend, get a case & screen protector.

Iphone 4 still a great value for money choice in todays phone market

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Apple iPhone 4 - 32GB - Black Smartphone

A great phone in the usual form factor of most smart phones available, though a susperceeded phone it offers everything of the new phones on the market bar the large screen without paying a kings ransom for the privelege, as used 32Gb unlocked examples in great condition go around the $330 to $400 mark.
The one aspect which Im used to now, but some may find annoying is the proprietry software of the Apple unit, meaning everything has to be done via itunes and converted into "APPLE SPEAk" which unless you buy everyting from the Itunes store will require lots of converting and importing files you have on your system if you want to use it on your iphone,music and movies etc.

Pros:Great Display, sharp and clear, quality of build, feel, processor

Cons : small screen compared to other new smartphones
everthing has to be done through itunes

All in all a good phone and a great buy!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Buying this product was an impulse buy. I did not need or want a new phone but when I decided to search for mobile phones and the most popular search was for an iPhone I thought I would have a look and see what second hand iPhones were selling for.

I began bidding on my item when there was only a few minutes left which looking back was both an advantage and a disadvantage. The advantage was that I won the item, the disadvantage was that I didn't get an opportunity to ask questions as there was not enough time.

The phone works pretty well but I have discovered that the inverted camera doesn't work but I do know that it is common for these types of phones to freeze. This minor imperfection hasn't made me regret the decision to buy the phone. I am very happy with the product especially for the price I paid.

It's only downfall is the battery life is not the best and needs to be charged every night depending on the usage during the day i.e. Social networking, Internet, music etc.

It is very well designed, and I would rate the item as a 4/5 !

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The iPhone 4 is one of the best smartphone's on the market right now. The combination of gorgeous new hardware, that amazing display, upgraded cameras, and major improvements to the operating system make this an extremely formidable package. Yes, there are still pain points that we want to see Apple fix, and yes, there are some amazing alternatives to the iPhone 4 out there. But when it comes to the total package -- fit and finish in both software and hardware, performance, app selection, and all of the little details that make a device like this what it is -- we think it's the cream of the current crop. We won't argue that a lot of this is a matter of taste -- some people will just prefer the way Android or Symbian works to the iPhone, and others will be on the lookout for a hardware keyboard or a particular asset that the iPhone 4 lacks -- but in terms of the total picture, it's tough to deny that Apple has moved one step past the competition with this phone. Of course, in the hyper-accelerated smartphone market where the Next Big Thing seems to always be just around the corner, it's anyone's guess how long they keep that edge.

Excellent product - but whats with the micro sim?

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Buying this phone gave me one headache, you need to resize your sim or buy a new one as it takes micro sim cards. This is something that I wasnt aware of.
When I got it my first reaction was '#@$% i got to buy a new sim card', but luckly you can modify your regular sim yourself with scissors or buy a cutter from ebay (couldnt find one in any local shops).
Theres a few sites on the net that explains what to do - its not hard, just be gentle. Looks like apple was saving space, or just being gimicky, as the working part of the sim is no different.
The phone is heavier than the 3GS but i dont mind that. Least you know where it is.
Easy to use, reliable and has style.

When choosing your Phone of use, look into even the closest specifications

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The iphone serves as my main phone of use. Coming from a family of mostly iphone and mac users, i have come to discover the fact that this Handheld differentiates itself from others. In the sense of, simplicity, technology, and overall its purpose as an all-in-one device. This item as opposed to others, and the main reason for my purchase, is that it does not easily contract a virus. This is what holds apple products, apart from others. No matter which iphone you purchase, wether this, 4s, or the 5. This isnt much difference amongst them. They all serve one purpose. That being, the most advanced technology to date.

A bit pricey, but worth it!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Apple iPhone 4 - 32GB - Black Smartphone

This Phone is great! the specs plus all the other features that Apple throws in, coupled along with IOS 6, it's awesome.
It has that premium feel a phone should always have.
Syncing media etc, are its strong suit as well compared to my previous Samsung galaxy s2. it defiantly has the upper hand there.. all in all, even though this model is 2 years old, it is still high quality.

Apple iPhone- The revolution of Mobiling

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have used a wide variety of phones and all I can say is I do not believe there is a better phone on the market at the moment, they are very simple for anyone to use and have heaps of features and not to mention the app store is huge and there are plenty of things to keep you entertained.

The Apple iPhone 4, has revolutionized mobiles, with its stylish design, high retina display, HD recording, immense amounts of applications, desirable touch screen, glass front and back and features that have changed the world as we did know it prior to its release.

All up, the BEST phone I ever invested in !

Great phone, now at an affordable price, highly recommended!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have had a Iphone 4 for a few years now an i must say its great.

I purcahsed it when my HTC Broke, and i havn't looked back. I mean why would you? They are so each to use.

So lets address some issues.

16gb of storage- Now with apple telling you that you can have upto 64gb(and pay twice the price...) you are left wondering if 16 is enough...Let me tell you it certainly is! Unless you are going to be dumping your whole music and movie collection into your phone you wont ever have an issue.

Camera- In general Apples cameras have been pretty good, and this is no exception. Once again the auto focus is good and it simply works. No its not 12 mega pixels like most new phones, but i was once told by a photographer that for the ordinary snap shot anything over 3MP is more than enough.

Battery life- The one thing that always lets apple down...Or does it? You need to think realistically. Apple didn't design these phones to be used 24/7. They are designed for you to fiddle with on the bus, and listen to music with at the gym, and to have a few texts through the day. They weren't designed to be abused like society does. So treat it like a phone, not a laptop and you will be fine.
