Even before the first iPhone 4 review went online, enthusiastic fans were queuing up in front of Apple stores nationwide. Good thing the new smart phone seems to be worth the wait.

Early reviews of the iPhone 4 say this fourth model really is a leap forward for Apple – except for one persistent flaw that may have actually gotten worse. Here's the roundup:

The shape

"Thanks to a boy and a bar and a blog, we've already known for some time what the iPhone 4 would look like," jokes BoingBoing's positive but not glowing review. "The squared-off, thinner, steel-and glass form is more masculine, more substantial. Like a really hot designer watch.... It feels really nice to hold. Once my hand got used to it, the 3GS body felt more like a toy, and I didn't much feel like holding it anymore.... The display is a huge leap forward. It's really crisp, and hues are more true."
