My First Experience With iPhone 4
I am new to these forums and to the iPhone but I just wanted to post my review and such about my experience with the iPhone so far.
I switched from my Droid 2 to the iPhone yesterday. My reason for switching was that i found the android operating system to be too inconsistent. My phone would always freeze up and reboot itself automatically. This got to be too much and after some minor research I decided to jump ship to Apple. I managed to find a mint condition iPhone 4 on craigslist for a mere $200!
I could tell the quality of the phone from the second I held it in my hands. I love the glass design with aluminum siding, it feels very classy and elegant. Everything about the design is sexy.
I was even more impressed with the smoothness of the operating system. So far i have had no problems! Everything runs fast and smooth, much better than my droid. The battery life is noticeably longer. The screen has an amazing picture quality. The camera is able to snap off pictures in the blink of an eye, much better than my droid which took a while to capture the picture.
I am thrilled to be a part of the iPhone community. I couldn't be happier with my choice. This iPhone is superior to my android in every way except for the lack of customization on the iPhone.
Here is a list of my pro's and con's of the iPhone
pros: retina display, camera quality, battery life, design
cons: feels very easy to crack the glass by dropping
Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to share my experience with Apple. Hope you enjoy reading. I'm glad to be part of the community

Welcome to TiPb. I love the iP4 as well, I came over from BlackBerry and it's like night and day. No way would I have 60+ apps on a Bold 9650 and the phone be just as quick and snappy as the day I got it. My Bold only lasted 11 days before I brought it back and got my iPhone.

Welcome to the Apple Community. In your review you mentioned that your Android was more customizable and I agree with that. Once you become more comfortable using your iPhone 4 you can look into Jailbreaking it. This would allow you to customize it the way you want to.

To solve the "lack of customization" factor, consider jailbreaking and you will be surprised at the level of customization that you will have at your fingertips.

Apple’s Official Response To DMCA Jailbreak Exemption: It Voids Your Warranty | Cult of Mac
“Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.” Apple statement

While I used to be a avid jaiulbreaker, I am now on the Pure team. (mostly because its my job to stop people from jailbreaking ) I would use the phone as is and if you feel something is just not up to par, then jailbreak. There are tons of tweaks in Cydia to make the phone do what you want and how you want to do it. I feel that iOS5 will get rid of most of the jailbreak reasons for most users.
