Regarding youtube videos... Iphone has recently implemented variable video quality depending on what kind of connection you have. WIFI video quality will obviously be better than the 3G video quality, and it shows. Having a dedicated youtube app rather than embedded flash optimizes performance. Rather than try to do everything all at once, the iphone switches (quickly) between things to ensure that the one thing you are actually looking as is done well.
Hongdolaxi, 20 Nov 2009Actually I really like the Hero, as in my opinion there's too many people who is using iphone ... moreHong,
keep your Hero for couple months and you'll get eclair instead of donuts.
and you can decide by then..
Well I give iPhone that:
where MAC failed, in multimedia, iPhone tries to compensate.
Some of the games on this device are awesome, if only the screen was bigger and the camera better and the OS more refined...

I LOVE this phone. I've been using an iPhone for 2 years, since 2007. i got the 3GS in June and I love it more and more each day. The most enjoyable phone I've ever used!

Yesterday, when i was trying to use the map, it didnt work at all and i was totally lost in somewhere i have never been to.
I think why the hero won the year of phone is becasue the 3gs is no big difference to the 3g, and the 3g was last year's product, so in the point of innovation, the iphone 3gs loss the battle. but i have to say they are both very good phone and i am keeping my hero for a spare phone to use.
I think you all the people that IPhone can not compared to any other phones all around the globe.
It has a different class & experience. Every function has a different mood.
I use it and it far better than any other mobile in this world.
All the other touch screen mobiles companies trying to copy the class of IPhone but surely they lost.
Hongdolaxi, 20 Nov 2009I bought my 3gs yesterday and i really like it. i ad a htc hero before for a month and it driv... morewell if that is true to everybody...
but that's not the case. Since HTC Hero won gadget of the year by T3 magazine, beating 3gs.
And oh... HTC has confirmed that they will upgrade Hero to Android v2.0 eclair that will enable bluetooth FT, full flash support, real life google maps, and proper file manager.
Sounds like my Hero is a decent phone and I won't trade it to ijail experience. no offence.. :))
Does anyone know is there an app that allows the user to switch the wifi on and off by just clicking it? thanks
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2009The 5800 doesn't have a GPU, neither does the N97, that's why Flash video looks all blocky wit... more5800 and N97 don't kage GPU, because just like 3GS, they don't use it.
Youtube has never looked "blocky with artifacts" since the N93 released back in 2007 wich was not a touch screen phone and neither does it look now on 5800 or N97 because both of them have mothe than twice the processing power required by adobe.
But not having flash and not beeing able to view most video sites is not so bad since you CAN atleast see youtube.
With a firmware this http://tiny.cc/iPhone337 buggy youtube should be the last of your concerns.
Enjoy the worlds best phone: http://tiny.cc/iPhone337
4 days ago i bought the phone really awesome.i think it must be the world best phone
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2009i DON'T know why you keep mentioning N97 over and over again. It's not even the same class as ... moreThe 5800 doesn't have a GPU, neither does the N97, that's why Flash video looks all blocky with artifacts.
Here this is from Adobe:-
Video delivery is one of the key features included in Flash Lite 3.1. Except for support for per-pixel alpha encoding (added in Flash 8), video is fully supported in Flash Lite 3.1.
Video delivery over mobile networks is challenging, especially over 2.5G and 3G networks. For optimal video playback on mobile phones, Adobe recommends using the following video encoding parameters for locally stored video:
Video size: 320x240 (the standard dimensions for web delivery; smaller is better) Video bitrate: 200Kbps Audio bitrate: 96Kbps
For streaming video, Adobe recommends lower video bitrates of 100Kbps or less and audio bitrates of 32Kbps.
Flash video with these settings will typically play back at around 12 frames per second on a 200MHz ARM9 phone or device."
I bought my 3gs yesterday and i really like it. i ad a htc hero before for a month and it drives me crazy. the phone is slow, google is bad even i have updated both to the latest version and firmware.
for those who's nseries, jump to iphone, the n97 is not even in the same level as htc hero, and iphone is just better!
i DON'T know why you keep mentioning N97 over and over again. It's not even the same class as iPhone.
If you compare iPhone to keyboarded phones, you might awell start comparing to ones without touch screen or grayscale, it makes no sense.
But, I don't own a 5800 but i've seen the many video sites on one including youtube.
Go with your pc on youtube, right click on the video => disable hardware acceleration => notice the pixels & pixelated edges.
No pixelated edges on symbian, neither on youtube, neither in any of the other formats you can play on it.
Please stop missinforming and lieing on public forums.
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2009"YouTube clips look better on the iPhone because the GPU is processing an h.264 stream unlike ... moreFlash-lite on current phones DOES NOT support graphics acceleration, that will come when Adobe releases Flash 10 for mobiles sometime next year, all you have to do is go to Adobes site to see who is being truthful here.
I'll give you a hint, it's not me.
Your blind hatred of the iPhone is reflected in your continual bashing of it.

N97 costs more than an iPhone VGA max, YouTube clips look terrible on it, must be the slow HSDPA.

-they actually look worse because the screen resolution is very small and as the iphone doesn't handle flash so youtube videos are converted on the go with loss of quality. Flash supporting phones take advandage of HW acceleration just like iPhone but many even have the codecs to play avi, divx, mpeg etc.
"VGA video @ 30 fps matches most phones out there."
-Most phones out there above 600$ record D1 or even HD.
"The camera is very good it probably explains why more photo's are uploaded to FLikr from the iPhone than any other CAMERA."
-Explains the youthful audience of iPhone that has the time to do so.
