If the next iphone has this equation...missing features + upgraded camera with video recording and a powerful lead/xenon flash + large touchscreen = one powerhouse device... THEN I WOULD BUY IT. Right now, the large screen of the iphone is somewhat of a waste due to the poor camera. My other option is the SAMSUNG OMNIA since it is coming ATT. For now, my n95 is one awesome versatile phone.
Not worth for the dime you spend. At least the body could not have been with a cheap plastic finish. Graphically intuitive. Comparing to other devices currently on the market, lacks many features. Bulky. Applications are targeted for those who are in US (in that way if you are in US it is somewhat worth the money). Phone is locked and bound to a career (unlocked version will cost you more). Battery is not replaceable. At least if you try to open, warranty is void. So many things to compromise for a graphically intuitive and user friendly phone
does any1 know how to install application into iphone 3g??? i am a new user...hope u guys can teach me ....thx...
A clear demonstration of fundamentalism. To make a point we all have to be categorized into either professional photographers going around with our SLRs and a buch of lenses, or we must have a crappy camera on the phone, like the iPhone.
Sorry, my friend, I want it all. Because I can: all other phone manufacturers offer it.
I own 4 digital cameras, all for different uses (from an DSLR, to a pocket one), and I still want a phone with a decent camera. Because there are moments I don't have any of my 4 cameras, and I still want to make a decent picture? Does it make me a customer who's out of the curve? I don't think so. I think I am similar to more and more people who seek creativity in the smallest things.
I printed and shown some situational pictures taken in Brazil, in BW, with my 5MP SonyEricsson K805i in 10x13', and nobody can say they're "cell-phone-pictures".
Anyway... just watch the voting results for the iPhone in this site, and compare to most other smartphones.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970yeah then I'm a stupid apple fanboy that satisfy with their foolish phone then
we that u called "apple-fanboy" the reason we buy their product is for their revolutionary stuff, good looking gadgets, and speed.

people saying that they need 5 or 8 mp cam to takes good picture,,
if u're really a photographer I bet u will Never takes photo using your phone since no matter how good the cam of your phone it will never match your SLR, or blah cam with good quality...
if people takes picture JUST using their phone they do it for fun and i don see anything wrong with iPhone's cams since it is enough for people who takes pics for FUN (read: not for job or pro photographer)
Then iphone users make excuses for apples crummy camera by saying oh i have a separate camera anyways! Most people want an all round good device in one which is not iphone with no video recording and a crummy camera! NO front camera for 3g!!!

I was searching up things about the iPhone and stumbled across an article. Anyone read about this story. It's weird.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2008There is no camera phone to date that would let people throw away their standalone digital cam... moreDear Anonymous,
Judging from your cool way to answer to my quite provocative post, and from how fast you did it, is qite clear to me that you work for Apple in damage control.
Anyway, regarding the digital camera issue, it is undeniable that digital cameras today are more and more present in people's everyday life. If they could, they'd bring them all the time with them. Just in case.
Hard to image though going around all the time with an iPhone in one pocket and a digital cam in the other one...!
Today, phones with 5 or 8 megapixels (like the Nokia N95 or the Sony C905) are good enough to satisfy this photo thirst.
I am an Apple user (I own a MacBook Pro), and I found unforgivable that Apple didn't throw in the iPhone 3G at least a 3 MP camera. It is almost an insult to people's intelligence, to throw all these cute effects, and not be at the level of competition with important features (just check the HTC HD that is coming up).
Mo, 22 Sep 2008When I see the fundamentalist passion of iPhone users, who say it is useless to have a decent ... moreThere is no camera phone to date that would let people throw away their standalone digital camera. Why? Because the quality of camera phones photos are not even close to the quality of standalone digital cameras. Ideally, camera phones are only good as back ups or for playing around. And 2mp is good enough for that reason.
The iphone offers lots of apps that weighs more importance and usefulness than megapixels.
