At the end of the day
actually the N97 has got only slightly better camera with traditional autofocus, while Apple has intelligent touch autofocus with e a great software.
Cameras you buy and solder on the PCB, software you develop over years with good engineers.
Little more resolution but only 24 bit color compared to the 32 bit of the Iphone, it takes CPU power to handle 32bit.
ALL other specs are quite a disappointment on the N97 compared to the 3GS.
especially considering that Symbian appears to be a dead end OS !
First - I love this phone! I get bored with cell phones very quickly and tend to buy 1 or 2 a month - I've been thru all the Nokia's worth a damn and the Samsungs, Motorola's and before that when they were any good, the Panasonics....but I've used the iPhone for a year now and still haven't found anything to compare for functionality.
Sure, it isn't perfect. It annoys me that I can't send MMS, and that the camera is primitive (but very good for a 2MP), but everything else is terrific with all the Apps you can get. When I go out now I don't need a huge bag to carry phone laptop iPod and PDA, just my iPhone. It holds my eBook library, my iPod, my phone and I can do everything on the net that I used to need my laptop for and do it comfortably...and I can catch up on TV shows I missed and movies if I'm stuck with time on my hands.
I recommend this phone to everyone who wants to cut down on the weight of technology they carry around, and can adjust to sending emails to everyone instead of MMS.....and that isn't difficult, really.
betty, 11 Jun 2009This phone is a piece of crapy did u buy it then u clown
best phone ever (Yes I'm looking at you 3G|s| with your.... mmmmmmm...... gimme one! Oh wait. It cost me more because i'm already a customer... Come back 3G!!!

betty, 11 Jun 2009This phone is a piece of crapwhat. Have you used this phone..
The phone is AWESOME
I own a nokia N79 and an Iphone 3G at the moment, but also recently had a Windows Mobile i780 which broke, as my N79 is also in for REPAIRS I now know why everyone must be jealous who doesnt own an iphone.
And for the people whose phones freezes, I recommend istat. It's a memory app which allows you to free memory and eliminate the freezing of a phone. Symbian doesn't have such an app by the way.
I had the Iphone 3G for one year, today I went to the Swisscom shop to order my new Iphone 3GS, 199 CHF about ( $ 185 ) and I will get it next week, same contract same number, I get to keep my old 3G as a spare.
This is an EXCELLENT deal, thank you Swisscom and Apple.
To me the iPhone has the latest features but it is too feminine and if you want to use it on full potential you have to jailbreak it and this is selfish from the apple company

betty, 11 Jun 2009This phone is a piece of crapyhea right
if you can tell me another phone that has the same functionality
first own one then give your opinion
If your iPhone 3 G freezes and you cannot reset it, do the following :
Press the Home Button and the Switch Button together for a 5 to 10 minutes. It will switch off. Then switch on again.
I dislike the iPhone, though it is a beautiful one. Cannot store files easily as the Windows on other mobiles.
