I used to be the same as you, an Iphone basher....BUT talking from experience now being an owner of one, this device is amazing and the screen is second to none! I currently also use a BB 9700 as a main phone with Iphone as a second handset as the battery isn't the best! At most a day and this is being drained completely every day and discharged! As for the signal problem the bars do read rather low in most places but never had any signal drop! Now people wonder and say "oh it must be your network"!!!! Well O2 and Vodafone I think are the best in the uk, however it isn't O2 network that is making the Iphone 4 bad as my BB9700 has FULL signal with the Iphone 4 next to it reading 2 bar / 5!!!! Overall I must admit I am satisfied and would encourage others to buy one regardless of all the others Iphone bashers out there who simply cannot AFFORD this luxury handset!
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2010But still no stereo sounds?
higher price paid for useless app that's not compable with anyth... moreConsider this... How can you differentiate stereo sound in a 2 1/2" wide device? That is superfluous feature.
2ndly, How much do you really do on a 3" screen?
Perhaps, if Apple can give you so much, why these features be of any constraints for them to add?
They optimise the device to give the best possible experience on a hand-held communication device.
Let us be frank. If Iphone is offered at a Samsungs & Nokias price, there will be few who can resist it.
Hear that ppl said they buy Iphone 4 at Canada, but once they go to Ireland and UK, the phone can not use it? Sim Free??? Any 1 can give suggestion of it??
I have a question. I am a 3GS user but i have lost my 3GS . If i buy this Iphone4 , will those apps that i bought inside itune be synced into my new iphone4? How about those hacked apps ? will they be synced too? please advise.
This is the first Apple IPhone that I own. I have alway own Motorola product but could not wait for a Moto GSM phone to be released. So far it is incredible. Tons of free apps and great music player. A microSD memory would be nice but I find it difficuit to use all the internal memory with photo, music, video and files. The Facetime feature is great when travelling and keeping in touch with family and kids. The Iphone is a great phone.

Most of them are people who can't afford it (or the contract)...

* MicroSIM card ... more"* Hardware design is prone to reception issues"
Get a case. I've never had a phone without a case anyway.
"* MicroSIM card support only"
Regular sims can be cut to microSIM size.
"* No "Flash support in the web browser""
Flash contents are mostly advertising. It's good it doesn't load all that cr*p to waste my bandwidth!
"* No true multitasking for all applications"
Do you really NEED battery draining multitasking on a phone?
"* FaceTime video calls work only over Wi-Fi"
I still have not known anyone who uses "video phone" on a regular basis, or even in any basis. Do you?
"* No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode"
There's an app for that (jailbroken phone)
"* No hardware shutter key for the camera"
2 years of using a 3G, never needed one.
"* No FM radio"
Never listed to this either
"* No stereo speakers"
Friend's Nokia has it, don't hear much difference. Any number of speakers this small will suck either way.
"* No microSD card slot"
With 16GB and 32GB, do you really need one?
"* No smart dialing"
There's an app for that.
"* Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content"
I love iTunes! It transferred all my contents from my 3G to my 4 in les sthen 3 minutes! Address Book, Phone book, bookmarks, Maps, Notes, Calenders, play lists, even save games data! It's all there! Amazing.
"* Poor loudspeaker performance"
I read a site somewhere that it ain't that much off from other phones available today. 1 or 2 db difference isn't a big deal. You can't really tell unless you use a digital meter.

I'm sure 90% of the haters have not even touched an iPhone let alone used one... Oh there may have been some that tried it out at the Apple Stores but it's just not the same when you sit down and really play with the small details.
It's incredible that the text looks as sharp printed text. Even my laptop's 1920 display isn't even as sharp... amazing...
i m from india and i m planning to buy iphone 4.
just want to know whether all reception issues have been solved or should i buy iphone 3gs.
Just got my iPhone 4 from eBay. Jailbroken and Unlocked. Wow. I mean wow... please people, don't knock it till you tried it.
Getting an iPhone 4 is actually the BEST way to get BACK at Steve Jobs! Jailbreak it, unlock it, and you'll never have to buy anything! I've had my 3G for 2 years and I never purchased 1 app. But I have 50+ full version apps and games installed! Take that Steve! MUHAHAHAHA!
I love all you iPhone supporters, but I need you to buy more products from Apple.
you see even though they are overpriced Hav you seen the price of drugs lately?) flawed and we deny it, and control what you do with your iPhone
does not mean I don't love you all. I just need more money. LSD and other recreational drugs have become very expensive and the drug cartels arent interested is swopping Apple products for their good stuff.
So please help a junkie out and buy more Apple products.
"The iPhone sucks."
-- me, just a few months ago.
I absolutely HATED iPhones. Sure, I thought, Apple made the best music/media players, but smartphones? Yeah right! When the first iPhone came out, I thought it was cool but I didn't take it seriously at all. Then came the 3G and the 3GS... still I wasn't too impressed. Then the iPhone 4 came out with the reception complaints. I thought, "Haha so much for this iPod phone!"
Then my friend lent me his iPhone 4. The rest is history. I have to admit, this device is absolutely amazing. I was first struck by how beautiful and classy it looks. But looks and premium material mean nothing if the software is a pain. I have used Blackberrys and most recently an HTC... the iPhone is so much more fun to use and the App Store is fantastic. The corporate email facility is topnotch, so is the browser. The camera is one of the best 5MP ones you will find on a smartphone. Music player - the best! Even the gaming experience is awesome with the accelerometer and the added gyroscope. And the display is simply out of this world. I first wished the size was a bit bigger, but then I realised that a bigger screen may not be as convenient. I still say a 3.7" screen would have been better but the superb resolution more than makes up for the size.
And to my pleasant surprise, I have not faced a single problem with reception!
I haven't jailbroken the phone yet, but once I do, it will make the device even better!
At the end of the day, the user experience of the iPhone 4 is unbeatable. Thats what's most important. LOL... I can't believe I used to be an iPhone "hater". What a difference a few months make.
Sorry to say but Iphone is not the best phone at the moment, Iphone has many disadvantages.
So you Crapple fanboys keep living in your dreamworld.
Because you have to admit that Crapple is behind with this phone.
For example the basic stuff is not supported like flash and normal bluetooth.
It cost's 184 euro's to make a iphone 4 and they sell it like for 800 euro's hahaha it just makes me laugh.
If you have a problem with this post that's not my problem, please refer to your best friend mr Jobs to improve this phone.
so expensive....plz dont buy it so bulky in use some time hangssssssssss...............
I have had iPhone4 for over a month,no issues i love it,best phone on the market. All you APPLE haters GO MAKE LOVE TO YOURSELF,yep,you know what i mean,even thick heads should work that out. Did i mention Nokia is crap,and not just the normal crap,but a big pile of steaming putrid crap type of crap.They last 4 weeks then the usual speaker faults or software issues
