iPhone 4 Initial thoughts

My phone arrived this morning (via FedEx) while I was in the shower, I say that to remind you all to presign and leave the form on your front door so you won’t miss your phone’s arrival.



I backed up my 3G phone and then began the activation process which took just a few (less then 5) minutes and was flawless.  I did a restore from that backup and was up and running in about 15 minutes. Everything was smooth.


First impression

I’m so impressed that Apple has redesigned the iPhone so much over the past few years yet it’s very reminiscent of the original... but at the same time, it’s completely different and improved.  It feels great in my hand and looks like a million bucks.



As advertised the display is amazing, crisp and vibrant in a way that I hadn’t anticipated.  



The camera is a major upgrade, the HD video is impressive and the stills are superb.  I’m not a super technophile about these things so take my thoughts based on that.  My impression is that you’ll be very happy with the camera. Here are my samples.


It’s faster

Apps respond faster then on my 3GS even on the apps that I’d experienced lag with in the past. Navigating the UI is quick.



The phone arrived charged and after 9 hours of use the battery reads 80%.  I took pictures, video, uploaded things to MobileMe, talked on the phone and used a lot of continuous iPod play.


Other Stuff

I’ve already uploaded a number of things to my MobileMe gallery and the integration is seamless. 


iBooks is more responsive on the iPhone4 then on 3GS


I’m going to go play with my new iPhone some more... back later...


FaceTime - I don’t have anyone to FT with yet but I can tell you this much... I’m way more aware of my double chin today then I was yesterday.
