Ordered on Friday 11/4, the phone shipped from Hong Kong on Sunday 11/6 and I received it yesterday, Tuesday 11/8. Wow!!

Hello! In Hong Kong Friday was launch day and in the first 10 minutes they went on sale online they were sold out and haven't been available online since. Did you actually read the article? I have been trying to buy one out of HK online since launch day and have been unable to do so. Demand far exceeds current supply globally.

If you look at my list, you will in fact see that the iPhone 4 to 4s transition offers the most new features of any release so far.

So no i'm not corroborating his point that all the previous gen upgrades were more of a leap forward.

Very helpful summary. Thank you. But specs alone don't tell the whole story.

The speed of the 3G versus the 1 was noticeably faster, making web surfing better

The battery life of the 3GS versus the 3 was noticeably longer - if you watched video, you couldn't get through the day without recharging

The speed, battery life and screen quality were markedly better on the 4 versus the 3GS

In each case, I felt the user experience provided by each model was substantially improved justifying the upgrade.

The only thing I didn't like about the 4 was the design. I've broken two so far. The practicality of a durable screen and back plate were essential buying factors for me. So when the 4S didn't fix this, as good as it may be in other areas, it wasn't have enough to make me switch.

Other than its exposed glass front, I think the 4 is a great phone. Battery life and speed are excellent. For these reasons, i am happy to wait for the 5.
