We'll all appreciate if the owners came out with their reviews of iPhone.
Now from what I see as specs -
1. iphone's bluetooth is only for handsfree.
2. No EDGE. Maybe when it comes to Asia we'll have it.
3. We dont see any Office applications!!! Maybe this is a multimedia phone and not a business phone.
4. it has no IRDA!!
5. No 3G
6. No memory card.
Now how do we exchange files/stroke images etc?? Since it has no EDGE nor 3G we cant even email it.
Dear 1st Owners of iPhone. Please give us your reviews on
1. How long does the battery last.
2. Speed of internet acces. I normally try www.livingston.net to check the speed of the connection.
3. Sound quality as a normal phone / bluetooth phone / speaker phone.
4. Do you have any dropped calls.
Hoping to see these questions answered soon.
Can you say not worth it. Over priced Idod that you can call on. Its your new paper weight. Call it Icrap.
Just bought it. Had is 3 days and took it back. Didnt meet my expectations. Internal antena with not enough power. battery life was weak. And was dificult to wirk with! DO NOT WAST YOUR HARD ERNED $.
Just got the Iphone. Went into an Apple store just to play with one and ended up walking out with one. Heres something for all you phone nuts. I finally understand, the Iphone is not about the features even though it comes decently loaded it doesnt touch the N95, yes i know. HOWEVER, as i said its not all about the features- its the experience, innovation, there is no other phone in the market like it.
Apple didnt try to take this phone and cram a bunch of stuff into it to compete with something like the N95, they just wanted a completely unique, innovative, phone with a fantasticly fluid user interface with features that appealed to everyone and that you wont only use "once" and they def accomplished that with this phone. There is def no other phone that can match the "cool' factor and there def wont be another like it. Its Apple, it just works.
Let me clear this out of the way so it doesn't seem like I'm an apple hater. I currently own a mac book pro and I previously had an ibook G4. I'm a mac fan but I have to say that Apple really outdid itself this time by producing and introducing to Americans ...bull crap! This is way below what I expected from Jobs. No HSCSD,No GPS, No slot for expanded memory, a built in battery that is irreplaceable, a phone that does not support 3G and did any of you who purchased this so called wonder phone notice that you cannot even perform a simple MMS task?? C'mmon! What's really smart about this phone? It's a pretty phone no doubt but pretty isn't what smart phones are about. What office product does it have(word,excel,power point,ilife, iweb,iwork ... what)? Touch screen is nice and beautiful but so is a syncing feature that allows transfer of important files from phone to computer; but ofcourse the iphone only allows syncing to transfer music files. Who exactly was this piece of crap geared towards? It definitely wasn't geared towards the business class. I'm really disappointed because of all the hype only to find out that it is no better than my motorola A780. I really hope Apple listens to critics,apply some of their recommendations and make the next update(iphone 2.0 which is inevitable) a REAL smartphone. Maybe by taking cue from the Nokia N series (especially the N95 and N93i) and the i-mate ULTIMATE series (5150.6150.7150 and 8150), Apple and Steve Jobs will bounce back from this terrible mistake called an iPHONE!!!
This phone is the Vince Carter of phones. Lots of flash and glitz but little substance. I will pass on it...I will be waiting for the one true phone beast...the HTC Kaiser!
I drove down to the US on Canada day to buy one. I got it (i didnt need the 2 year plan since I am canadian and did not meet the credit requirements - no us mastercard)
I have an N91, and N95 and now an Iphone. Ill let people know my impressions ...so far pretty warm/hot i must admit)
Ill get back to you all
No official review yet on GSM Arena, the best portal on GSM devices??! This is odd?! Look forward to read it.
it is so lame that u cant put ur own tracks as a ringtone, and u have to use their lame ass ringtones, also u cant choose what message ring u have and u cant use ichat or any sort of IMing system on it
Let see. You're paying 600 bucks for a touch screen and a good looking interface. These Apple fanboys are so sad saying the iPhone revolutionized the cell phone... most of them probably has no idea what is going on in the industry.
Its no wonder the iPhone does not receive any hype in Japan - the people who actually knows how to make a proper cell phone.
iphone and Nokia N95
Camera: 2mpx (iphone)
Screen: 3" 62K colour multitouch (iphone)
0.5" black white plastic (Nokia)
Satnav: Google maps/intergrated gps (iphone)
May I ask you are in in teh right mind you just posted the worst thing ive seen Iphone fan I guess now to fix your mistakes you will be quiet supriesed seeing the N95 on top or not.
Camera 2mpx (Iphone) 5mp Carl Zeiss Camera (N95) With 30fps recording near dvd quality + 0.3mpx vga camera for video calling.
Screen 16million color 2.6inch screen (N95) 16million color 3.?inch touchscreen Iphone.
GPS. Nokia N95 has a built in GPS chip which means no internet fees when using the gps.
Apple Iphone dosent have a built in GPS chip meaning when using the gps software you weither need a bluetooth normal gps to send the data or get charged by your provider because you use GPRS to retrive the data for the GPRS software.
Memory- I phone 4/8gb no card slot.
Nokia N95 160mb internal + micro SD card slot for currently memory cards up to 4gb until the 8gb cards come out.
At the moment the only place i see the
Netwrok-WiFI-BOTH,3.5g HSDPA (N95) 2.5g Connection (Iphone).
The onyl area the Iphone can beat a N95 is the Screen because its bigger but it is a personal prefference for the touchscreen it does not prove its better i like the DS because its inovative but do i want to select thigns on screen just to get the number pad to dial someone imagine an emrgancy where you need to dial 000 or 911 it'd take a while longer then just sliding the keypad down and dialing.
But teh screen it bigger so the Iphone for screen
Memory Id say tied because the n95 will match it once the 8gb card comes out and in anotehr yearb we will be seeing 12gb cards so the N95 will get a lead here but not now id say tied.
Camera N95 by long shot 2mpx vs 5mpx.
Network N95 because it has 3.5g compared to the 2.5g
GPS-Nokia once again because it has a built in chip.
"i think ill stick with this one for a while"
your gonna have to for 2yrs..
this is the most amazing phone i have ever bought. i usually go through a phone a month trying to find the one i like, i think ill stick with this one for a while, the texting adn typing are very easy, and for those haters out there dont be jealous cuase u dont have one i would have paid anything for this phone for what it does. so easy to use jsut like mac's incredible, just wish it had 3g but that one is comming out in december, so ill get that one
Lke I was saying sometime ago iPhone is a 2G phone and is missing a lot of feautures, even voice dial is not there(rediculous). Apple comletely ignored biz people who require organizer, creation of qick documents, tables o the go. iPhone is missing all those feautures. Lack of 3G and ability to dload Youtube videos is completely annoying because of slow Edge speed.
It may be a nice toy, but not for a serious user.
