My impressions are:

3. Battery Life - I noticed a significant improvement so i cant complain
4. Front Facing Camera - This will come in handy when i want to take pix with friends and family so i love this feature, its sooo easy to use too.

Coming from a 3G, I couldn't be happier. The jump in speed is crazy. I'm not sure how I was getting by with my 3G. The phone feels so nice when I hold it. The weight is perfect and the screen is amazing! I haven't had any signal issues so far.
I'd really like to see an app that turns the flash on so I can use it as a flashlight.

I am very happy with it in almost every way, except the signal issues! Hopefully Apple addresses this with a quick update in the next week or so. I hope they don't sit on their asses on this.
Display is great, speaker volume not terribly loud, but very clear, runs smooth and fast, camera is really great, took lots of pics and some 720p video tonight right at dusk and it is breath taking to say the least.
iPhone 4 is a winner, now fix the dang reception issue! hehehe

The iPhone 4 is my first iPhone, coming off a BlackBerry Curve. I am in love. This was a big investment on my end and after about 5 hours of playing with it, it was worth it.
My only issue is that turning off the cellular data disables sending and receiving MMS messaging. Not a big deal, but I guess it's to be expected?
Yeah, I noticed the whole antennae issue where holding it lowers the network and wifi bars, but based on the two conversations I had and using the wifi, I can't say I had any problems.

Maybe that is what the bumpers are actually for and not for looks????

I tested the signal by making a 5 minute phone call on 3G signal and it never dropped a bar and i had every single antenna bar covered. also i watched a video of a 3G with iOS4 doing the exact same thing so we shall see.
my short review since im tired is that I LOVE THIS THING!!!!!! It is clearly without a doubt the BEST iPhone/phone ever!!!!

The aluminum metal whatever it is around the phone, is actually the phone's antenna and people are having issues when using the phone because - the generally accepted theory - is that the human hand, being conductive, is interrupting the signal's outputted and inputted using the antenna.
Considering the antenna IS the body of the phone this is gonna be a tough one to fix, I find it hard to believe this sneaked right past Apple, they must have had people USING this device prior to release, it seems pretty apparent that they picked it up at some point during testing.

You need to review all reports on various blogs, tech mags and especially on various forums. The reports on all these models now since upgrading.
So are you telling me that suddenly thee 3G's and 3GS's are all having hardware problems since installing iOS4? I don't buy it.

Was at my parents house this morning, had a case on the phone, holding it in my hand as I normally would. 5 bars, steady. Took the case off and held it the same way as before. Within 10 seconds, 4 bars, 3 bars, 2 bars, 1 bar. Then I held it with the thumb and forefinger of both my hands by the top and bottom, fingers against the glass. Within about 30 seconds, 2 bars, 3 bars, 4 bars, 5 bars.

Got mine yesterday and by 3 PM I was up and running, I also got one for my Mom and after 2 hours talking her though the setup and activation process we were good to go and made my first Face Time call, a very cool feature. The only problem I had was signal strength. My wife was sitting next to me on her iphone 3GS with full signal and my iphone 4 kept going form no signal to full signal. I tried holding it different ways but no luck. Have not had time to really check it today. I did a speed test using the Speed Test App and the results were Download 0.20-0.57Mbps, Upload 0.05-0.88Mbps testing both Wi-Fi and 3G, I just checked it here at work on 3G and I got Download 1.48Mbps, Upload 1.6Mbps. My upload speeds in the past on my 3GS have been up to 5.72Mbps. Has me a bit concerned but I am sure it will all work out. Over all I love the phone, great photos and the DH video is amazing, I love the feel of the phone, now just need to get a good leather flip case for it.
I hope you all enjoy your iphones
