As a retail phone salesman and an iPhone user myself, I cant help but laugh at the Nokia N95 nuts who think their phone is any good. We constantly have the 8gb black and the original N95 returned to our branch every week with problems and the phone is not a shade on the iphone. It is over priced and slow, Has a poor battery life! You only hate the iphone because you signed up for your nokia too early and feel you have to defend it! The N95's only outstanding feauture is the camera facillity and soon this will just be an average with 8.1 mega pixel models being released! Give it up and start worshiping the iphone as it is the future and soon you will ALL own one!!!
Not to mention that most appstore apps have been cracked.Have u guys seen crash bandicoot on iphone compared with nokia?It looks incredible, almost nintendo/sony psp quality.Imagine the games that will come! Appstore has been up for one month or so and there are HUNDREDS of apps many of them super-high quality. The iphone really is the future! Where is the nokia touch screen ?Also itunes sync is amazing: MUSIC PODCASTS TV SHOWS MOVIES oh and ITUNES U plus audiobooks etc...and did i mention APPSTORE?Just watch Crash Bandicoot on iphone and die of jealousy nokia fanboys
We already know all those things.
But anyway IPHONE is the best phone on the market at this moment no spam anymore please.......
Just a few major disadvantages that Iphone 3G has:
- No video calls over the 3G network
- The handset wobbles on hard even surfaces
- There are a number of messaging downers
- Camera has no auto focus, nor video recording… nor any settings at all
- Safari browser doesn't support Flash and Java, doesn't have a download manager
- Bluetooth support limited to headset use only (no A2DP or file transfers)
- No office document editor
- No copy/paste functionality
- You cannot sync Notes and TO-DOs
- No memory card slot (but knowing Apple there will never be one)

There are a great numbers of the photocams up to 1o PM and those are not to axpensive.
Buy one of those and stop COMPLAINING about the Iphone
ha ha ha, only N95 can challenge iphone??? even low end phones can do much more than iPhone 3G!
it lacks so many phone applications that it can hardly be called a phone! :P it really is just an expensive toy
Not sure if i want this phone anymore after all the negative publicity, maybe opt for a 32g i-touch

sorry i no that but ill tell you why i asked the question ok i have a N95 on a contract with vodafone and my girlfriend was going to sign a new contract with vodafone to get the Iphone you can get the iphone on a $49 contract and pay $363 outright for the iphone so i rang vodafone to order it but they said the sim card that comes with the iphone is the only sim card that will work i cannot put my vodafone sim card in the iphone because it will not work and i was just seeing if it is true or are they full of sh!t

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i am just pointing out that apple could have added more features on the iphone 3g that the n95 has...and I am sure nokia will build a touchscreen phone.
Any truth to what I read today? Apple has admitted that it has the ability to remotely control the iPhone (ostensibly to remove hacked/unlicensed software or fight viruses.) The Consumer's Union here in Italy is talking about taking action to force Apple to remove from sale all iPhones that can be remotely controlled, and to replace all iPhones already sold with this technology because Apple did not reveal this before the phones went on the market. The CU maintains that it is a breach of privacy.
Pepsi, 14 Aug 2008Yes, go look up the Nokia Tube. Just because the N95 has more specs than the iPhone doesn't... moreWho said I am whining?...lol..just compare the specifications of the two phones. n95 is more of an all around phone, while the iphone is more of a toy (media).
guyver3, 13 Aug 2008who cares about the touch screen. iphone 3g softwares are just easier to download throug apple... moreYes, go look up the Nokia Tube.
Just because the N95 has more specs than the iPhone doesn't mean it's superior. The iPhone is aimed at a certain market and if it's not for you then don't whine, no one wants to hear it! The iPhone's OS and internet browsing abilities are much better than the N95's. I work for a phone company and know all about both phones, but I'd choose the iPhone as internet is most important to me besides being able to call and txt. I wouldn't even look twice at the N95 after seeing the iPhone!
The point of this ramble is just because you can't see what's so great about it, doesn't mean other people won't. Everyone has an opinion and different people have different needs for a phone.
daniel, 13 Aug 2008hi i got a big Question to ask i live in australia and i rang up vodafone to see about the iph... moreThe iPhone is locked to the Vodafone network and is only available on a 24 month contract. You can't buy it outright, so obviously you have to be with Vodafone on a 24 month contract to use it if you buy from Vodafone.
if the iphone 3g has 3.0 + mega pixel and a great flash...i would buy definitely buy it. So I will wait till apple upgrades the iphone more.
i have changed many many phones over the last year and i mostly use PDAs. The Iphone 3g is great for what I need it for,as a phone,emails,speed and music. It has all that. For me there is nothing in the market that is close. I tried the samsung i900. got rid of it the next day. All the phones claim they have same iphone interface. I am sorry but there is no comparison. They are light years away. i have not even mentioned the pictures on the iphone,programs to dowload,access to itunes etc. Please guys if you hate the iphone then dont F---ing buy it.
oh wow a 3G iphone. nice looks, and they have changed the back, and its 3G. oh did i ention its 3G because thats the only update. Same crap camera. Take a leaf out of S.E and L.G 5meg camera. and so so on.
guyver3, 13 Aug 2008also check the voting results. oh and the n95 can also store a lot of softwares..just like the... morei have an N95 and i love it though i've been thinking about getting the Xperia X1 lately
