lol its funny how some apple fanboys cant admit that the iphone does not hv the best features and those rare fanboys who do admit say nobody uses the features iphone lacks.

Under properties change the display to 16bit colour.

Now play a DVD especially one with lots of dark areas or large areas of sky.

How does it look?

I rest my case.

people saying bad things bout iPhone cams, in reality iPhone provide the REAL 2MP cams,,
its the best 2mp cams out there

diamond is better than iPhone you kiddin me??
my friend owner of pro envy my iPhone because its performance.
i often try and use his pro, its perform ok like other wm phones..
one pity is even with such powerful hardware it still lags and freezes a lot..

and i often see my friend restart his pro just because the phone keeps freezing...

even pro the one that is better than diamond lags a lot how bout diamond..
i wonder how many time you have to restart your phone since you use it..

my iPhone does lags some times but very rarely..

i think not more than 3 times since i use it till now

> In reply to [deleted post]Do window's mobile devices still grind to a halt when the battery drops below 80% and how good do the fantastic pictures you take look on the 65k screen not to mention movies?

How many times a day do you have to restart it, as it's performance drops or it freezes up?

I'm testing to see if you really have experience with owning one.

Sure, we're on the same wireless network just use this App (Discover from bBase) to access it from the shared folder on my iPhone.

My iPhone is now acting as a shared drive on the network.

Welcome to reality.

There are photo editing applications available from App store which let you edit photo's on the iPhone, you can also stitch together panorama's larger than 2 megapixels.

btw in today's phone world any phone with a camera less than 8 Megapixels is now below the best standard.

Yah this contest sucks. Yah iPhone is no Camera phone. but....

No it does not suck, N96 is far more worse in functionality and build. Wtf Nokia whole Nseries sucks
Cheap plastic crap.

No mobile phone with TouchScreen can even get close to iPhone functionality and that is a Fact.
Get some time with the iPhone and u will see. It's not possible all the Countries of the world to have
deticated sites about iPhone and say such good words for this device for nothing. WAKE UP

Ball's..., the iphone's photo's are immaculate as compared to the M8800 which is an 8 Mega Pixel camera PDA phone..., so please read you facts carefully Mr. Anonomous cause the iphone rocks, its superfast, supersensitive, you cane beat the Safari Browser & to top that off it has "iMAC" software which is is even hard to find on most laptops now days..

P.S I have both the iPhone & M8800 in hand now.

P.P.S. Refer to facts.

they only allowed photoshop cause they know that the camera is such a piece of shit that it needs the help of photoshop to produce a DECENT, not great, photo.

The i-phone camera sucks, its only 2mp which for a phone with so much hype really blows. Plus its an apple product and we all know that apple is just a try hard company.
