I have had many many phones and I have always kept away from apple due to the pricing and the fixed prices from network providers. I am a huge fan of android also then I had an iphone4 from orange and all I can say is WOW!!!! Te phone does everything you can wish and the games are amazing! Th screen is stunning, iPod player is perfect and instant - no delay like I had with many other phones including samsung galaxy s and HTCs. The sound quality is freest, battery is fine as long as you condition the battery from the start. Everything out there'd seems to be geared up for apples iPods/phones. Apple haters will say the awful, but I you are considering one - try it, you wont regret. FaceTime is also just amazing!!!!
