The hype has finally ended. It just came out here in the Philippines and you won't see anyone lining up for this. There were some ocassional glances but most turned away when the saleslady admitted the lack of features, which ironically are already standard in most existing phones, even old ones.
Enlightened customers simply saw no logic in spending a lot just to downgrade to a phone with actually LESS features. In the vernacular, it's "nilalangaw", a reference to flies and how only they seem to be interested in this, along with other forms of rubbish.
what kind`a telephone is it? it doesn`t record video, transfer files via bluetooth and memory card !! it`s not that well thinked...
This phone came out in the Philippines about 2 days ago and I finally had the chance to try it out. I went over the brochure and the phone itself with the saleslady, trying to convince myself to get it. I mean, I was waiting for v.2 when iphone first came out. But... I just couldn't bring myself to buy it.
I have a 2 yr old w800 and even that could take videos. I sometimes take mms for business purposes and my w800 can do that too. I receive text messages often that need forwarding and my w800 can do that too. Iphone can't???!! WTF?! And, oh yeah, the Music Store isn't available for the Philippines yet. Just in case your wondering.
I post here, not because I want to unnecessarily trash Apple, but as an honest feedback. Get your act together, Apple! Your lagging in minor details called "features". Wake up!
what i fine funny is all these iphone hateer spend 24/7 research the iphone what it does't have thinking there are the best when they post the commet "hehe this makes me big"
you must like the phone in the first place to be even on this page am i right> i know i wouldn't look on a phone i dont have/want.
and we know it dosn't have the basic. and we know that when we buy them. iphone now has video recorder and mms / copy and paste etc on the way

Is it true that iphone 3g speaker is too weak? Can it plays mp4 format (entire movie)? Iphone users please answer
The best flaw to date is when you put a password into it it types it out so you can see it... to bad if someone is watching so therefore wats the point in hiding the password?%Pr

The guys who posted this next section was not researching, I would dare say they are working for apple hehehe.
You forgot to mention the following under cuts:
- Fluid UI - That is not the best and always has faults like not flipping the screen when it needs to.
- Intuitive Touchscreen - Too much info happening on the screen with sliding and clicking, zooming links they always fail.
- Very Good mp3 player - Hahaha what about the sound quality. Its 10 times better in the ipod itself.
- VGA screen - Screen display is too bright therefore lcd pixel BURNS!! Im holding one right now lol.
- Scratch-proof glass display - It will scratch trust me give it time.
- Very Good Organizer - Whats that no copy and paste functions!!
- User Friendly UI - Refer to above too many things happening on 1 screen that it always plays up.
- Lots of SAFE applications that you can download - Yeh pointless apps eg have a glass of beer and light saber lol.
- The BEST visibility under direct sunlight (better than Nokia) - Yeh its really bright no wonder but wait till you get lcd burns in your beautiful screen.
- Very fast and easy zooming in and out of images - Oh 1 good thing that has not stuffed up yet!!
- Screen turns off when you put the phone on your ear and turns on when not - You would hope so!!
- Allows you to freely navigate to any applications while on a call - Um every phone does that.
- Full touch qwerty keyboard - Very annoying little buttons that you always have to correct when you press the one next to it by accident. Plus its only good with the index finger so its limited and that means 2 hands always :O
- Easy syncing of files via itunes - yay what phone cant sync now days.
- 3.5mm headphone jack - Yay is this a benefit? Of course its a 3.5mm its an I product.
- Cool, minimalist design - This you can have
- wifi - Well you would hope so its missing everything else.
- YouTube Application - YAY cant you just web browse you tube?
- Push Email - Oooh watch your data usage people.
- Very Good Weather Application - The news usually is quite sufficient so this is pointless.
- Lots of Games (tetris, hangman, solitaire, tic tac toe, blackjack, etc) - What phone doesnt?
- Dictionary application - Cool if you use it.
- Bible application - Cool if you use it.
- Currency Converter Application - Yay
- Stock Market Application - Yay.
- Selected (not all)Password protected applications (notes, expenses) - Yay you would hope so.
- Pandora Radio - A special name for a radio is this.
- Plus more, more, more faults like 2 MP Camera, uuum we are up to 5 are we not? Oh wait no video call Camera!! Oh wait no video recording. Oh gosh Apple the money hungry mob strike again!!
- Bluetooth - Yay you can connect a headset but you cant share files with your friends.
- The lack of copy and pasting has really got me stumped.
- Have we touched on software issues and why after 2 weeks, work friends of mine have had to do full restores on there icraps and even full returns and exchanges because of freezing?
Wow, it seems like you deliberately missed a lot of the icrap's crap features. I wonder why? LPr
