"If we had to recommend a cameraphone, it would be the iPhone 4S. The still camera was either the best or a close second in each category we tested. Also, it stole the show when it came to video recording. It goes to show that when Apple put their hearts to it, they can quickly climb to the top (and it was a steep climb too, if you remember the cameras on the early iPhones)."

Adobe announced they will no longer develop or support it.

Have you got it yet?

Exactly, get a case for your phone.. for what? To protect it, am i right? You want your device to be scratch free, to be perfect cosmetically, so you put in cases..

I know you did not mention at all about cases, i just point out the example of it because people want to protect their phones.. and brittle glass doesn't give any protection at all..

And you saying that people should not drop their device and get insurance is plainly ridiculous.. why? Because accident happens.. yeah, s#*t happens everyday.. we can't expect accident free living..

And no, there isn' any Gorilla Glass in iPhone 4/4S. the quality is simply different.. you can tell by various videos and tests.. those sites that states it is Gorilla are at most uninformed, or, better yet, a fanboy like you who can't accept that their iPhones' display is made of lesser quality and durability glass than Gorilla Glass.. just stab your iPhone with a pen.. see if it can survive.. mine can.. because it has Gorilla Glass..

Oh, wait, i forgot that you are those who put their phones in cages, with maximum security so that you won't have a chance of dropping accidents.. yeah, sorry about that..

Anyway, i just hope the issue of battery will be solved.. i am not really a fan of apple products, but i still want to see that apple will grow, along with other great companies along.. i just can't stand fanboys who make stupid comments and didn't think much before they made those comments.. grow up, think and learn.. don't just take in what others tell you without doing more research about it.. cus that's exactly what you need to do when you graduate from junior school

Whoever says Sensation XE has better sound than iPhone 4/4S is on crack. iPhone 4 and 4S are best in sound quality for cell phone bar none.

Why is that ? Cause you're incapable of facing the truth. Just like a drug addict, the hardest step is always the first: admiting you have a problem. So what exactly tells you flash is dead ? It's never gonna dissapear in the next 5-6 years. Millions of videos and sites aren't gonna get magicaly transformed into html5. Youtube alone would take 3-4 years if they are wonderfull rec...

i think the price is pretty good and to everyone who keeps asking about if they can buy it on the US apple store website outside the US, NO YOU CANT. you need a US shipping address, and GSM Arena isnt a place to ask that how about you go to the apple store and see if it takes your Saudi Arabian VISA card how would anyone one here know the answer to that or even bother to take the time to find out for you!

I wonder what percentage of GSM Arena readers have access to 4G Networks?

Is so simple, technology works in that way..once this announce IS OFFICIAL from Adobe they will change every single format for mobile HTML5 navigation...who want to be on and old and already announced KILLED technology....

This war was gained BY APPLE...they are the responsible of killing FLASH heheheh and even Adobe ADMIT IT :P

http://www.engadget.com/2011/1...h-player-fo/

.....and the fact that one of the leading mobile platforms (Apple's iOS) was not going to allow the Flash Player in the browser, the Flash Player was not on track to reach anywhere near the ubiquity of the Flash Player on desktops... Just to be very clear on this. No matter what we did, the Flash Player was not going to be available on Apple's iOS anytime in the foreseeable future......

And that official by Adobe....I didn't made it hehehehe
