This was my first Iphone. I was very impressed in the functionality and ease of use. For me, the most impressive was the battery life. After using the phone extensively throughout the day, it would still cover around 25-30 percent (depending on background apps). This is quite exceptional. At the time, this was quite a large screen on a phone, but it took little time mastering its use. I have had several cellular phones before this and since, and it is still probably my favorite (No, I am not fanboy of Apple, I just like good products and this happened to be one, in my opinion).

I like its design. The camera was good compared to other devices at that time. Battery was disappointed.
