[deleted post]Typical Apple user or should I say Steve Jobs marketing victim?
Don't blame you. I was once iPhone user and I was fooled by same rhetoric, till my friends open my eyes widely.
Just try to read following lines and say that I am wrong.
When Steve said that you do not need camera 100% of the cult followers scream "that's wright, we don't need camera on phone! If you want pictures take a DSLR"
Just 1 y latter when Steve announced cam on "new revolutionary phone" same people unanimously scream in the ecstasy "that's new and revolutionary phone and that's exactly what we need".
How else push someone to spent large amount of money for something 2 (or more) step behind the rest of the manufacturers? Simply! Just launch aggressive marketing campaign and twist the truth in the way they want to hear.
As I said, don't blame you. Instead, try to Google or something like this.
Compare and try to find out what you really need and what is best on the market today. Just a hint..compare pic and videos from new iPhone4 and let's say N82.
And you know what? That's 3 y ago launched phone. Feel free to be as much as critical to N82 in this comparison.
[deleted post]I've had the N95 since it came out and mine doesnt creak and yes its made of plastic but it has sustained 7 to 8 falls and still works well.
check Sharp AQUOS 941SH
Apple is a year behind Japan tech. I wish I am Japanese LOL. They have most advanced gadget first
Allan, 21 Jun 2010He owns the N82 sharpshooter with xenon flash.that's a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!
Phenomenal 30fps HD video
Finally without reworking by Apple
Almost good as N82 (3y ago).
one of mine friend told that iphone 4 is coming with symbian OS ?
just wondering that why apple change OS in iphone 4.0 ?
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2010most of these are not firsts in the industry by any means.
1 ghz processors in phones since... moreI don't kno where to begin tearing apart with apple hater.
1) its not apples fault if FaceTime is strictly over WIFI for 2010. Thats a carrier problem--duh
2) You mention your biased sourced story that I read from about Amoled superiority and the study that talks of Apples claim of the what the eye can or can't see. The Fact is the Retina display is still the highest Res phone out wit highest pixel density--even Engadget.com agrees..
3)HD video recording might not be nothing new but iMovie is. Apple is safely years ahead of the comp in at-least doing something different.
finally, Higher CPU in mobiles don't necessarily mean a better user experience. The iOS4 will still be a smoother better OS due from the best hard/software optimization.
3) you be-little apples claim of thinnist phone--still its the thinnest...
The rest of your points were baseless Apple hating.
[deleted post]didn't you owned an nokia?
therefore you are a nokia sheep also.
iphone is buggy too pal, that's why their up to software os upgrade 4.0
all of those so call new technology is so last year.

[deleted post]people who want the n8 will wait for it but at least we can move our sim cards around to different phones.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2010May b u dnt know for symbian 600 mhz procesor n 256 mb ram i more than enough it snappy with ... moreThat is rubbish, Symbian and snappy don't belong in the same sentence unless there's a 'not' between them, it's been a complaint for years.
See how the brainwashed Nokia sheep defend their laggy phone's.
It's so bad they can't even see that lagging and freezing are some of the main reasons Nokia has been losing high end marketshare.
So you say Symbian doesn't need 1GHz and 512MB, yeah sure is that why it takes ages for transitions and you get a few seconds of blank screen when turning the phone.
Wake up and smell the roses Olli Pekkahead has you hypnotised.

Yes face talk for example changes everything apparently as does the year old 1ghz processor
googoo, 20 Jun 2010face time i.e. video call i can do that on my 4 year old sony ericson k750 all of a sudden app... moreApple don't claim to invent anything, they claim to revolutionise things that already exist, which they do and do very well, which is why everybody's looking for that iphone killer.
I don't use the Iphone never have may use it in the future but I certainly like they way do it over there.
face time i.e. video call i can do that on my 4 year old sony ericson k750 all of a sudden apple have inventered something thats been around before the first iphone was brought out as usual apple invent things that all ready excsist and give them a different name as for the iphone4 whens the iphone5,6,7and 8 coming out
well the UK iPhone tarrifs have now been released - no doubt they will be the same on every network as apple will be dictating what can and cannot be offered.
here's an example: 24 months - 600m unlimited sms, 1gb mobile data, wifi - £35 per month and upfront handset cost of £209.
Compared to its nearest competitor - the HTC desire which isnt a million miles away in terms of spec - you can get the same deal for £450 less over the contract period.
The latest iPhione just isnt that much better to justify the huge difference in price so its clear that Apple are basically just taking the mick now.
Attaching a little piece of white plastic shaped like an apple to a phone simply doesnt increase its value by that much.
Then of course we have the issue with apple's control freakery - but dont even get me started on that
duel, 20 Jun 2010Why so many keep saying these 1ghz processor etc. have been other phones for while? are you gu... moreyou are right.If you are having a powerful processor beyond the capabilities of a mobile device,then you need to have a powerful long life battery to with stand the powerful processor,always a recommended clock speed is necessary which is around 600-700Mhz
Why so many keep saying these 1ghz processor etc. have been other phones for while? are you guys silly? that's so stupid thinking. Samsung/htc example making maybe six phones in year :D of course they are ahead. Apple make one phone in one year, of course they are coming late to same specs so what? It hasn't slowing iphones sells and doesn't slow in future
Sumit Saini, 20 Jun 2010Why all u guys saying it a crap ?
It has many firsts in the industry.
1. 4 times more clear... moremost of these are not firsts in the industry by any means.
1 ghz processors in phones since end of autumn last years. Iphone nearly 3/4 of year behind. Current android phone about to use the new 1.5 ghz chips,even 2ghz android phones on the way over the coming months
Iphone does use 326 px indeed but trying to claim others all use 165 is stupid,thats what previous dated iphones use. Most top current competitiors hit in around 260-290 px per inch depending on the phone model. 160x 120 extra pixels on a 3.5 inch screen is as experts analysed it at 4% noticeable. 300 px is not the human eye limit,experts have deemed it to be about 480px...a fact apple seemed to have overlooked to hook in fanboys.
no amoled or superamoled depsite amoled being in phones for over a year and a half meaning iphones contrast is 800:1 and some amoled phones hit 100,000:1
and 1ms repsonse rate.
thinnest phone ever...maybe but by half a mm or so...well done apple great achievement.
Multi tasking...even now still not properly inplement in iphone os despite it being out over four years while android ahs been doing it since day one
hd recording: available in phones since last autumn. Samung h1 360 had hd recording about in last october,many phones have it since the turn of this year.
Video calling...barely available now on iphone 4 to iphone 4 only and only over wifi while phones have been on the market for years whith this feature and over 3g also.
Iphone is just about struggling to keep pace,all its components have been available in competitors for some time now.its success purely down to influenced fanboys aggreeing with Steve Jobs every 'this is what you want' and 'look cool' statements.
Apple have barely updated the menu and its features over the years,simply releasing 'new' models annually all with 'new' features which should have been easily been implemented in the previous years model,slight tweeks while all the time hiking bigger prices on board for stuff which other phones have been using for extended times before. Some prices just dont make sense like a 100 euro differnece between a 16gb and 32 gb iphone model while 16gb micro sd cards can be got from 40 euro. Apple making 60 euro alone on your memory decison
