I'd like to see them try. You can drive a Ferrari over these things and they won't break. It'll likely break the blender.

Granted, the iphone can't do certain things, but that list needs to be way shorter.

have you looked at the list below? (

Are you confortable with thousands of people seeing it and reading the arguments in there? It's not like most of them aren't true you know?

You should stop provoking people especially when you don't have an argument, you only cripple apple's reputation.

An iphone amy it be covered in gold, it's still the same crappy piece of chinese hardware that pizza delivery boys use.

Part of being excentric is using videocall and muck more :)))))

Everybody knows apple wires the jacks backwards!

Just go to the store, buy a decent headset (with a mic, any brand) and see how it does not work!

Lying isheep

I just this very minute tested this and plugged in my SONY WALKMAN headphones to the iphone.

I'm done with you guys, you're making things up, and I suggest any iphone owner should ignore these comments.

What a joke you all are (^^) I bet you all love the SE headphone jacks (^^)

But the fact that they wire the jack so that you're forced to buy iPhone only headsets sucks, using an adapter sucks even more:

And the fact that bluetooth audio didn't work on the first iphone was a huge letdown, not to mention it doesn't work to well not even with OS 4.0 since it stutters on videos like it did in 3.x.x

Also you can't control songs remotely via a AVRCP headset... so me wrk some don't, on others only certain commands... getting a working bt steroe headset for iPhone is a mess...

You have GOT to be KIDDING me...

The best audio output is still held by Sony Ericsson. Nokia & Samsung are catching up though...

iPhone? They CHARGE you for EVERYTHING!
$79 crappy earphones? Check!
$99 battery replacement? Check!

WITHOUT the Apps, the iPhone is practically a piece of cr@p!

I hope the author brings links to EVERY aspect of that list to shut guys like you up!
Common sense should shut you up if you look at the link-proven arguments alone... apparently you have none.

I've not got an OCD about what the iphone can and cannot do I'm afraid, so I'm not going to trawl through some geeky lame list. I've got better things to do.

I couldn't find almost any of the craps in that list on nexus though...

Mind showing what ain't accurate without subjective statements like "it's the fastest phone in the world"

A 2 inch screen ?

I know that we don't all need to have a 3,5'' I-phone screen !

But make it at least 2.4'' for better user experience (Such as comfortable reading/typing a sms) With a 5MP camera and 32GB memory this isn't a budget phone so why use a budget screen ?

Never mind, you will be able to convince iphone owners to upgrade to something else, when Android dominates the smartphone industry. :)

Compared to apple that can't admit their own mistakes or stand by their products:

LoL, that list is as old as iPhone 2g so I guess the light sensor slipped through...:/

Anyway, what could a smartphone do with IR...hmmm:

Control your TV, HDTV, satellite receiver, etc:
Control your DSLR camera:

And even your MAC =)):

That's just how modern IR is, too bad it's only found in high end DSLR cameras.

As for the repetition, I don't think so!
There's hardware flaws and software flaws no one's to blame if they affect similar components

iDon't list RULZ!!!!!!!!

Well, if Apple can charge people half and arm for a peice of junk like iPhone who's OS updates brings it into the year 2004, than why can't this one make it.

Omissions, yes. Not Issues.

And I can easily just search Google like you have, for phone problems.


But it's not like batteries everywhere started exploding and dousing people. You are listing rare, isolated problems.

"iDon't even have access to mp3/custom ringtones" Well, from my own music collection, I can make my own.

"iDon't really have a “snappy” UI, iHide my slugishness with animations & transitions." Lol, that's scraping the bottom of the barrel. Mine is lighting fast, and I bet without those 0.5 second transistions, it would make no difference.

"iDon't have a bright enough screen." That's just so wrong.

"iDon't have IR." *rolls around laughing* Who uses that? You'll be slamming the iphone for having no ariel next.

"iDon't have a light sensor." WRONG WRONG WRONG

"iDon't have a decent build quality, iCrack." Haha, I'd take the iphone's build quality over most N-series any day! xD

Granted, some are true. Others are repeated more than once, and others are just lies propogated by a hatred of Apple.

Who wrote that garbage? XD
