Default I switched to iPhone, and I won't look back. (Review) (Pictures)

Please Login to Remove!

Recently, I took the plunge on the new iPhone. It seems like the hottest new gadget out, so I figured "Why not?". I've been a heavy Blackberry user at work, but my new iPhone simply eclipses the functionality of any Blackberry by a factor of 1000, so I'd be stupid not to switch. I'd like to share my awesome adventure with the Blackberry community of why I think the Apple's new iPhone is a gift from God. Without futher adieu, I'd like to bring you my mini-review of Apple's iPhone!

My new iPhone was delivered by FedEx, and I was already impressed with the quality of the box. With a box this great, I was 100% assured I would be getting a product of the best quality. Needless to say, I was even more excited to tear open the box and find my present inside!


iPhone Box

Opening the box, I found the usual Apple class being displayed. I was dying with anticipation as I tore open the box to find my treat inside!


The open iPhone box

After ripping the box open with my claws and teeth, I was greeted by the most beautiful sight. Behold, the Apple iPhone in all its splendor and glory. I was taken aback for a moment, and I had to stop and remember to breathe. "Remember Adam, it's just a phone", I kept telling myself. But just by looking at it, I could tell this was not just a phone. It was a new way of life.


Behold, the Apple iPhone!

I turned on the phone, and this thing is so smart -- It was already activated with my provider's SIM, and my e-mails, contacts, applications, everything was already on the device. It's like Apple read my mind with this beautiful piece of machinery, and telepathically downloaded all my contacts, e-mails and apps. Awesome!


The front of the glorious iPhone

Okay, so the phone is working beautifully. I decide to try out the iPod functionality. Again, all of my music was already synced to the device, I didn't have to do a thing. This new technology is amazing! Best of all, the new iPhone has every bit of functionality that my 4G iPod does, and THEN SOME.


Testing out the iPod functionality

The iPhone is pretty solidly built and feels good in the palm of your hand:


iPhone power in the palm of my hand!

The iPhone is also a pretty slim, stylish unit as you can see in the photo below:


iPhone from its side

I'm totally in love with this new iPhone, and I won't ever use anything else than Apple iPhones. I'm captivated by its intuitiveness, anticipating my every move. Sorry Blackberry community, I've found a new center of my digital life. C'mon in... the water is fine!

Editor's Note: I have since suffered a puncture in my inner ear, but I think it's totally unrelated to iPhone functionality.

Wow. Nice. One sweet piece of integrated hardware. I love unboxing these things; I usually like to unbox once for myself, then I repack and unbox a few more times with various friends and relatives, that way I spread the love a bit. Thanks for sharing this, I'm off to Rogers for mine this morning!

Yeah, that was cute.

Some of my sister's friends have iPhones and have had some complaints. This review was pretty interesting too. iPhone v. BlackBerry: Side By Side, Two Week Comparison
