I'm not sure where you got your information, but it's obvious you never actually used the phone. The UI is VERY user friendly.. in fact, that's one of the most touted benefits of OS X. I was able to hand the phone to my gf's mother who hasn't used anything other than a simple simple phone for her entire life, and she was able to navigate around, play with pictures, and everything with ease.
The picture quality is amazing for a 2MP camera, and it is very easy to use with one hand. Maybe you have tiny tiny hands, in which case I can understand.
And, most important, it's VERY easy to enabled 3rd-party support. Sure maybe it's not officially supported yet, but it works now, and in February, Apple is releasing their SDK which does nothing but welcome MORE 3rd-party developers.
All in all, it's a great, easy to use phone, with a slightly-expensive yet easily justifiable price, IMO.
i want to ask all of u that have the iphone how can u got new ringtones or pic or..... without having bluetooth ?? i mean if ur friend have nice ringtone and u want it can u get it , and can u downlaod somethings from the computer to it using the cable ??
waiting for u
Iam sick of hearing about n95,had it sold it because of the usual probs thats been stated over and over again..
The rzr v3 come out with 5mb memory and could not video record till a software upgrade allowed it too,it has vga camera,low res screen, so how come its sold over 100 million fones ?? Its the design of it and it was gorgeous and so is i phone so it will sell too.. not everybody wants top camera and so on!! most people only want all bells and whistles to show off they never really use them realistically..The i-phone is a materpiece and things will improve when third party apps come along ,,,,just remember some people in my area still use n3310 and it does wat they want which is talk and txt so why should the i phone have to do everything its good at the features it has and if its not to your spec then there are 100s of other fones to choose from
The i phone doesnt do anything amazing that no other phone doesnt do, What the big fuss?
I had many phones past 2 years, i mean all kind of brands..Last one was N95 and i keep it about 1 month..It was great phone, but i didnt like the cheap keypad and loose slider, and also it was Restarting by it self 2-3 times each day..Now i have Iphone about 1 month, and this is perfect..I know there is no Blue-tooth, no mms or video recording, but still im happy with this phone, because i don't need video or mms..For video recording i have perfect video camera, and for bluetooth, i can use my headset with iphone..Im sure you not using mms, bluetooth ( picture transferring) or video recording every day..
that phone is amaizing,cool.i dont care it dont have video record because i have a video camara,and actually not exist phone that record videos good,for that record videos isnt important ,i think a good phone has to have a good reception,good screem resolution ,fast wifi,looking COOL,NEW TECTOLOGY,16M RESOLUTION OF COLOURS AND BRIGHT,EXCEPTIONAL TOUCH ECREEM EXPERIENCE.... I AM VERY HAPPY WIHT MY IPHONE
No video recording??? You must be joking! Even a two-year-old N70 shoots video nicely. I live in Cambodia and there are iphones for sale here with considerably high price. When i went to check it and played around with it for a while, i decided to stuck with my old and stable Nokia.
Big, High price with no 3rd party software support with no video with unacceptable pic quality with NON-FRIENDLY UI... then it just a piece of crap... Consider before you buy one.
Plus, you would have no chance to control you FABULOUS iphone with ONE hand... you must use both to hold it and touch it. You'll find this small stupid solution annoys you everytime.
Why not using the phone from experience manufacturers instead of a company which just made a phone yesterday and sell for high price? Consider for a while and you'll think we've been cheated.
The iphone is going to be big, Really can't see people sleeping outside the store for days though wanting the iphone i've been playing with one for at least 3 weeks now at work and it's a fantastic h/set so i'm going to wait a while for one pacific reason.
There's dis & advantages about the phone which all h/sets have for example the tariff prices and the phone doesnt have access to mms and 3g network and of course after the 18 month contract and u cancel u contract the phone features becomes a brick as you can't use the phone with another simcard with o2
Advantages is of course the battery life and the touch screen is quite cool, internet browser is good might go to franch and get one as it's illegal to lock phones over there to just one network so it will be a sim free phone
im thinking about buying an Iphone. but ive read all the comments.. and many says the iphone sucks. does it get messed up alot? or... does it work fast?
Just to settle about the N95, great phone on paper. I work in a mobile shop, not so great on reliabilty, constant freezing, software issues and all round problems, a real headache. Iphone has not been released here yet (Australia) but if it is anything like an ipod i hope my store doesn't sell it. Most reliable phones over the past 2 years (in my store) have been Samsung with the worst two being Motorola and LG, and nokia are getting poorer and poorer as time goes on. Would like to try an iphone, hoping it really does have something going for it... Rumour has it, in australia the iphone is coming out on the 3G network (from what i've heard from reps etc.) this would be interesting, though i doubt this is true.
Try a pocket pc! LOL I have been using phones since the last 15 or so years I had mobile before many people in un even before sim card was introduced. I've had many pocket pc intact most Mda that came out on t-mobile uk. The thing with iPhone is its really special its like nothing I've ever used before and sdk not even released yet. So yeah most phones on the market can do a lot of crap but iPhone is a new experience for me. And trust me I hack phones to death so I guess I'm in a good position to make this statement. Beware tho people reception is mad if you grip the bottom of iPhone while talking.
Hiya! I need to know. Does apple iphone have video?.. and also could you put broadband onto this thing? email me because I need to know now.. thanks!
people here are comparing the first apple mobile phone with the media monster of the leader in the mobile industry (N95)
but its not right they are both from different categories as the iphone is a touchscreen device and it is intended for the touchscreen users it came to revolutionize the pocket PC and microsoft's Windows mobile platform and in my opinion apples UI is a lot better than W.M (windows mobile ) UI any way N95 was meant for the people who wants something that does it all BUT are you going to use it all??? i had the chance to get N95 or W850i and i chose W850i as it has what i need without taking the luxury of battery life and frankly i dont see where N95 is superior to w850i other than the screen ??
envious is the last thing in my mind if you are happy with your iphone and i am happy with my n95 then that's all that really matter's.
Great: size, weight, display and seems durable.
Bad: Ipod audio, touch screen (sensor), no handwriting recognition, no chat, no video conference, no GPS, not unlocked, must have an AT&T contract which ..., poor sound quality (reception).
These are my experiences and can be confirmed by independent reviews.
It will take at least two generations to get this unit to work properly.
While other companies easily catch up with the few advantege of I phone.
(ETEN, Nokia, Samsung, etc.)
I hate when companies purposely put half-developed product on the market so they can get us pay twice or three times to get one decent product.
Iphone ver.3 is available today! It is in the safe (see similar products of other companies).
u knw i was jus waiting for i-phone to hit the india markets,and buy it on diwali but after coming to know the detail features of D phone i thnk the nokia 1100 is fine , atleast it has a sms forwarding system, its just not that, it doesn't even have a facility to record a video,nor a bluetooth transfer system..... i jus dont get it WHY people are lining up in apple stores to buy it......?????
