Honestly, this phone is a disappointment for me so far.
Some other person said that the camera is OK on iPhone, well I can tell you that the camera is complete crap. Unless you have the perfect conditions it will take quite useless pictures.
Just got my iPhone about a week ago and so far I'm loving it. It really has the ability to do almost whatever you could want: internet, phone, ipod + apps etc. My only downfall (besides Rogers' outlandish data plans!) is the battery life -- it is nothing to brag about. I am still switching over from my old phone and haven't done much talking but in terms of surfing I have done about 4 hours overall and it needs a recharge! It's still a great smartphone but if you're planning on getting one prepare to deal with some sucky battery life.
I want the i-phone but people say about camera been poor..How poor is poor tho cause it cannot be that bad..Can i take photo of mates at about 2 foot and it come out clear.I am after i-phone for wat it does but if the camera takes a reasonable photo then thats ok,,i am not after accurate micro snaps just general fun snaps..
My next question is when will it come out on payg o2 uk cause i am getting it that way,,i am 17 but cannot go contract route and my mates have same problem at that age and asking parents as gauranter is no chance..
who cares if the diamond has better res, that phone still is crap, it runs windows
Features are great but, compared to an HTC Windows mobile phone, its way back far....
-no flash and java support
-no video recording
-no 3G video calling
-only 2mp camera w/ no flash
Id rather get an HTC,SE, or Asus..,
not a bang for the money
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2008How can you say that the resolution of the iphone sucks when it has better resolution than you... moreno screen size obviously plays a big part, but it just shows that apple could have easily increased the res.
for the competition (HTC diamond) to release a phone with a screen size .7 of an inch smaller, yet have twice the screen resolution is just shameful on apple's part!
btw the n95 has nothing to do with this. yes the n95 should have a higher res screen but im not talking about that...
is it true that the camera in the iphone is not that great? its only 2 mp but it is said to be more than that. is the resolution good?
is there a software present to upgrade the bluetooth and SMS features in the iphone? will an iphone bought abroad work elsewhere?

it sucks it drops calls often 3g doesnt work too many problems. not worth the money
i loved it, got it a last week.., and mine is the black iphone3G (black)..it was so perfect for me!!!
I've never enjoyed using any phone as much as I have enjoyed using the iphone. It's the best phone that I've ever owned. For those people complaining about BT file transfer, SMS forwarding, & MMS. If you use those features every day, the iphone is not for you. I thought those features are important at first, but I came to realize, after having so many phones in the past with those features, that I don't really use those features a lot, which means, I could live and function without those features in exchange for other more helpful and useful features that I would gain with the iphone that I would be using every day. I never thought that a phone can have this much effect on me. Iphone is a really cool device.

Also, HTC Diamond may have better resolution that the iphone, but pictures still look better on the iphone because of its bigger screen.
javier, 06 Sep 2008when in the review you say that the iphones sunlight legibility is not surpassed even by nokia... moreno samsungs are actually illegible in bright daylight. thats been no problem with my n95.
btw, this phones screen res sucks. 320x480?
i think htc should teach you a lesson
640x480 on a screen of 2.8 inches!!
when in the review you say that the iphones sunlight legibility is not surpassed even by nokia come on, ive owned 3 nokias and the brigthness its the worst compared to sony ericson and samsung and apple etc.
nokia its the worst displays ever.
bought it a week ago RM3500 & love the iphone BUT not my type of usage. just sold it for RM2800 because it is a CRAP phone. sorry.

But you won't be able to use Vodafone Live, or musicstation or any of the other Vodafone services. You should be able to browse the internet, but not using the WAP connection. This is not just a guess, BTW, I work in a Vodafone prepay call center. Also, be aware that Vodafone don't offer any support whatsoever for the iPhone...
