chk out the video - iPhone... too kewl
To: Gr & everyone else
I totally agree with your review, you just saved me the time to type in my opinion here lol...anyway your better off with a Nokia N95
with a 5MP camera+video which really lives up to it, MP3 player and with a removable Micro SD card you could put up to 4GB memory, that should give you at least 1000 songs and 1000 pictures and about 2 hours of video....and as for the Navigation, its very accurate but the only thing is it takes about a minute or two for the sattelite to find your position. but im sure nokia will fix their flaws in the future...
But anyways i just wanna say i feel sorry for the people who got tied up with a 2 year contract with at&t and those people who switch their carriers. i went to an apple store yesterday believe it or not they have a lot stock! i played around with it for 20 minutes i already got bored of it. in my opinion iphone is so overrated and people just got persuaded with all the advertising and the touch screen and all its basic features but i have to say it does have an exellent resolution and thats the only thing i liked about it.
my final say iphone is a fashion phone. if i wanted a fashion phone with a full touchscreen interface i would have gotten an LG PRADA!
LG PRADA has the similar medioce features as the iphone. I bet you if they advertise LG PRADA people would have gone for it lol.
as mentioned there are 11 flaws in d iphone so i think people out there are smart enough to select wat they want...guys i really wanted to get an iphone...but im frm india n i think iphone wil b available here only in 2008...bu i think by then apple wuld have made all the short comings fixed...ive used lots of models of all brands ...n95 is d best guys...as of now u cant compare iphone n n95...so plz chill guys...
I think, Iphone is better than E90. Just check the product of the Apple whenit comes to appearance and functionality(ipod, nano,etc)
I am technology maniac. I am always fooled, but I can't stop running after new technologies. I'll buy it whatever the circumstances.
I am M. Baligh and I love studying all new technology without purchasing any. This is my hobby and I will not get this iphone never.
I was surprised to see so many internet sites saying that iPhone's release will change the mobile industry. All their comments ultimately points to Nokia. Nokia is the leader and they could have made these kind of phones a lot earlier. As a leader, Nokia should be ashamed.
O2 PDA's are alot better than the i phone like
Matt don't get it + you have to put music onto it through i tunes
Woo the i phone is a rip off
it is an I pod in a phone but thats just a mp3 player in a phone which is common
the camera is only 2 Mp where you can now get 5 mp
does not have video
Its a rip don't get it
Well, I got one... I was awaiting for it last 6 months. After all - just a huge frustration. Yes - you can view video, yes - you can see weather report and listen to the music and even multiply 1234 by 9876 in a few seconds... that's it. The major thing it lacks is the phone itself. Apple is probably a generation behind of all other manufacturers - simply speaking - it just sucks... I'm not talking about nice wrapping - it's really nice and cool. BUT - the phone itself is BAD. It has an average reception in place where anything else has great. It has NO signal in place when all other phones (4 in my household) show at least 2..3 bars. It shows some signal when it sits in the cradle, but once taken in hand - no signal at all. Its EDGE is nothing... really - no signal around Staten Island, around Brooklyn (Bay Ridge, Govanus Hwy, nothing around Brighton), nothing in lower Manhattan. In a few places where EDGE worked - one may loose patience waiting for one simple page loads up... each video of YouTube - 3 minutes waiting...
Camera - what can I say - it's 2Mpixel... That's it - could be worse. No video mode - I suspect that Apple will charge something 3 months from now for an "upgrade" to convert the still photo camera to a video one...
The above is not counting a crude 2 year contract with recently returned back "at&t" and the fact that the phone is dead without it... Oh.. yes - the phone virtually stills when you try to send an e-mail and there is a low or no data-speed - it's "dead" like an old Dos or Win3.1 - no real multitasking or scheduler. Yes - it's fashioned and cool and I'm going to "enjoy" it a full month before returning it back and canceling AT&T contract for loosing $36 activation fee (I consider it as a cost of experience). Oh yeah - it's NOT a OS X inside - it's something looking close to it (the dashboard and apps and Safari doesn't sync bookmarks with my Firefox the same way as Mail doesn't do it with Thunderbird). For those who don't know - OS X is an Unix based (BSD) operating system with open user interfaces - while this one is something absolutely locked and brain-dead (yes, it's brain-dead user friendly - it "knows" what the brain-less user wants). By the way - the "cool" orientation interface change works ONLY in Browser and Photo mode, all other functions always in a Vertical mode (well, the youtube videos are played ONLY in - horizontal mode :-)). The last drop - this gadget which has all possible means of data transfer uses ONLY cradle and wire to sync up to your computer - the WiFi and Edge are NOT used. And the last - talking about this thing is supposed to be the phone at first - when it's in DATA mode on EDGE - it does NOT receive calls, the AT&T sends call to your voice-mail AND you have NO even idea that you're missing [perhaps] important call when you're watching some nice clip or staring at a WEB page... Yeah... they forgot that this thing is the phone...
I don't have N95 nor E90, but now I really want one - Apple's mountain delivered a mouse (for those who understands what that expression means)... Very sad - I'm and all my family are Mac lovers (this review is typed now in my home Mac-mini - the System admin of this WEB site may check the log and confirm this fact :-)) and I did not expect such a set up from Apple (after over 6 month waiting time).
y just now?..right after i got my n73?!!..damn you iphone!!!..yakimochi!!
Guys Guys.. Hold on!
Why are you comparing this with the N95, Its double the price!
Both phones have evolved from differnt concepts, What ever you scream out, N95 is still jus a phone!
This is a innovation from apple! appreciate it... Iphone is way better than N95!for the price...
wat the r u insane????
I got both phones N95 and Iphone, and compared them, N95 is good but its too expensive, GPS is the only thing better, battery sucks, internet is ok. Iphone battery is good, its really easy to use and its fashion, you can watch videos better than the N95, its fast and who cares about 3G? Iphone is the best one on the market right now. About the camera N95 is just little bit better, the 2MP Iphone is very nice too!
