I had quite a few dropped calls when I first got my iPhone4, but I don't seem to be getting them now. They must have made some improvements.
I think the smooth, seemless operation of their operating systems is what separates Apple products from the rest of the competition. One of the reasons for that is their closed system. When an operating system has to work with seemingly hundreds of combinations of hardware, chances are you'll run into problems.
