I couldn't wait to get it. Then couldn't wait to send back!

I had HTC Incredible and was very happy with it. But still, I couldn't wait to get this "wonderful" iPhone, just like many more millions of people. What a mistake it was! This phone is nowhere near what other phones can do now. Internet was so slow compared to my HTC. So was the reception, not as good. Interface is so bland, there's nothing attractive about this phone (IMHO), despite all the hype. Plus, my camera was broken, shutter wouldn't open. I understand it's another common problem with this thing, in addition to dropped calls, death grips and so on...
I had to happiest days of my life: the day I finally got my iPhone, and the day I sent it back!Build quality 9/10Reception 4/10Call quality 4/10Internet 2/10Multimedia 3/10Camera 1/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 3/10Text input 7/10Display 10/10Battery 7/10

In my mind this phone was the best, but in person didn't meet my expectations. I'm sure it will beget better after Verizon speeds up the internet and gets Flash. I sent mine back
Did a side by side test with a HTC Driod Incredible and the Droid was so much fast then the iphone :( My push didn't work right called Verzion they said send it back.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 2/10Multimedia 6/10Camera 4/10UI speed 1/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 6/10Display 10/10Battery 2/10

My first smartphone. All i hoped for.

Great phone. Plan to keep it for the duration of my contract unless something goes seriously wrong. Overall, no complaints besides battery life. It just needs a task manager or app killer and it would be perfect. The bright side is I can basically charge it wherever I go because I have my laptop with me often. Also for the internet, if you are a Verizon customer and planning on getting this phone, the internet is fine. Not slow at all. There is no speed difference from all the Droids on the market. Individual ratings will go in more depth below.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 7/10
- Everything but battery
- Needs app killer or task manager

I got the Droid X about a week ago and was having so many software issues with it, I just couldn't stand it, so I swapped it for the iPhone! It was a great choice because of the simplicity, while still being able to control what you want. The only issue I had was that the 3G cut out yesterday and I had to restart it to get it back, but I had that problem with my BlackBerry Storm2 a lot, so I'm not too worried.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

Still suffers from Death Grip
cheetah2k has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Still has antenna issues.. Not sure how Phonearena gave it a 9/10 - cash for comments??.. Really, its just the same o shit just a different carrier... Battery still doesn't last a day without a recharge..
The original iPhone 4 is 6 months old. Should have a better CPU and better camera in whats essentially just a CDMA refresh.Build quality 9/10Reception 4/10Call quality 7/10Internet 4/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 4/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 5/10Display 9/10Battery 6/10

Best phone i've owned
Marvelboy95 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I'm not exaggerating when I give this phone a 10. I used to think that Android was superior to iPhone, but after owning this phone I realize that I was completely wrong. If you are considering buying this phone, I would get it :).....................Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

Not As Good As At&t,
Duane has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I was one of the lucky people to preorder this phone or Let me specify Unlucky. The Verizon Version of the iPhone 4 can't keep up with it's Competition. This phone is running 3g and is slow, very slow. You also can't surf and talk at the same time as well. I plan on returning my Why Phone 4 and switch back to a more reliable device such as the Droid X. I here Verizone Is working on a LTE Phone to get in the 4g crowd. I believe it is by Samsung and has a much more reliable operating system like Android 2.3 Gingerbread hopefully. All I can say is Verizon, give the iPhone 4 back to the GSM Networks or step up to the plate and give customers a bigger discount. Who knows, maybe a year from know you guys will have figured out.Build quality 7/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 4/10Multimedia 4/10Camera 5/10UI speed 3/10Everyday usage 3/10Text input 3/10Display 9/10Battery 5/10
- Overall Display Is Beautiful. Crystal Clear Reception, Solid Build.
