I don't want a generic answer saying 'it depends what you'd use it for'. If possible, I'd like current iPhone 4 users to read my post, and tell me if they think I'd get the use out of it. Basically, right now, I'm using my 16GB iPad. Come this Christmas, I plan on buying a smartphone of some sort, for a more portable device that I can take anywhere. Sure, the iPad is useful at home, at school, and over long travel, but it's impractical for me to take it out anywhere else. Seeming as it's widely disputed to be the best smartphone on the market (for the average user at least) I've been strongly considering the iPhone 4. As it'll be a contract free and unlocked one however, it'll set me back £499 (that's $789 to Americans). And that's a hell of a lot of money for me to pay out. (At least Apple themselves offer it unlocked in the UK...it'd cost a hell of a lot more if they didn't) Before I got my iPad, I'd use my iPod Touch everywhere I went (I still do, in fact, where the iPad is impractical). It's just that cost that's the main issue for me. I realise it's an excellent phone and mobile device, but I'm wondering if that justifies the cost for me, particularly as I already have an iPad. The other phone I've been considering (much more 'budget' than the iPhone) is the HTC Wildfire, pretty much because it's less than half the cost of the iPhone and still a good smartphone. Thanks to anyone who read through my looooong post, and can give an opinion.
