This is the first iPhone I have ever owned and I have to say I am impressed. I have come from own Nokia flip phones, then Blackberries then Android. Using this phone is a complete joy and the ease of use and functionality is exactly what I was looking for in a phone. It is the first phone that I have owned that works all the time, no lag, no dropped call and no crashes. In my opinion the design is gorgeous and hardware is important to me. It feels solid in the hand and has hit the sweet spot in weight. The display is by and far the best I have ever used. Even after using it for over a month the pop of the screen still catches my eye. Ecosystem is unmatched by any other ( I have come from Android, which has improved but is not there yet). I expected the performance to be good, but not this snappy. I often pay attention to RAM, processor speeds and how many cores a machine has. Apple continues to surprise in this field in both computers, phone and tablets. Their machines just dont seem to play by the rules in this category. The speed of use is incredible, there is barley any "wait time" while using the phone. LTE is a market improvement for anyone coming from 3G or HSPA+. iOS was disappointing in some categories, but I have confidence that Jony Ive will be correcting that very soon. Overall very impressed and highly recommended.
