I like my iPhone 3GS, it mostly does what I want a phone to do – yes the battery life sucks and until the new OS was released, syncing with my Exchange calendar was so problematic that I rigidly kept to UK time when travelling overseas (all very confusing).

The iPhone 4 promised so much, huge hype had my nephew queuing up to be one of the first.
As I wandered past the O2 shop I thought I would pop in and take a look.
Franky unless you are desperate for the extended battery life and the forward facing camera I found myself under-whelmed by the device.
Yes, the screen is crisper but unless I spend my life with my nose glued to the screen then the iPhone 4 did not seem that much better than before. When I held the 3g and 4 next to each other there was no wow moment *and* the new screen is physically smaller.
Then there is the new form factor, gone is the unique ‘cushion’ what we have now is a blocky, quite heavy, handset that is simply a ‘me too’ amongst many. And, of the recent reports of signal loss due to ‘poor holding of the phone’ seem to point to inadequate prototype testing.
So as of now I will live with and love my 3gs with iOS4 (which is very good) and wait and see if the iPhone 5 will change my mind.
