The iPhone is flawed in many respects. Average camera, no flash, basic bluetooth features... this list can go out. The thing is you're more than willing to overlook these small flaws because the iPhone excells massively in every other area. I've owned very recent models of Nokia, SE, and Samsungs yet I'd still put the iPhone a world above them. If you've never seen or used one don't base your opinion on reviews. You have to see it to believe it.

2- When recieving a call in standby mode, no REJECT opti... moreyou're and idiot,learn how to use.

I dont know whats the hassle about 2mp camera on the iPhone... unlike Nokia or Sony Ericsson that has hundreds of range N,E,..K,W,Z..hmm..iPhone 3G has all the needed function in one device... I use a Nokia N95 8Gb before the iPhone 8Gb... Yes.. I cant send mms or videocall...but the I enjoyed the fast access to Gmail/Yahoo..My email looked sooooo good when downloaded and super fast...heaps of applications can be added to the phone...I love how my music sounds when I'm on the tram to work... Its easy to update the software when hooked up to itunes...been using it for 3 weeks now...loving it!...but hey..if u want a 5megapixel camera, mms and videocalls... go get a nokia or sony....:)
I bought an Iphone 3g two days ago, and the 3g recption, is most of the time, one to two bars. It also also performs better in 2g mode.
Since finding out, that the antenna is at the bottom of the Iphone. When turning the phone around, my signal increases to full reception.
I have to say, I have been dealing and fixing mobile phones for years. This is the first time I have come across, an antenna installed at the base of the phone. Where the users hand is placed sheilding the signal, from working. This phone was tested on the Optus 3G 2100 Network Toowoomba QLD Australia.
Tell me, do we need to have heads that spin to use this phone???????????????????
Maybe Apple should go back to making computers, they can't even place antenna in right direction and position god help us!
hi..really when comparing the iphone 3G to other phones we 'll find only the Nokia N95 which may challenge the iphone 3G..
Nokia N95 has a 5 mp camera..and video rec.,
but the iphone only 2 mp..without video rec.,
and also the bluetooth feature..and the out speaker..,etc..
but iphone=experience+style+less problems..
Nokia N95 has many problems as many other Nokia phones..,
So the I-Phone in my opinion. Just had a hands-on-experience. My post is for Romania so i don't know if some things i say may be accurate in other countries:
The SMS function - the dictionary only in english
Google Maps - don't work in Romania, they get lost along the way
Bad camera - nice light sensor but no autofocus and image stabilizer
Without an unlimited internet connection you are toast :)
The bluetooth problem - here we use it above average
Lack of privacy - ... ;)
3G mania- the diference is Edge has 220kb/s and 3G is 384kb/s
Weather - Constanta's name is some thing like Kumarg .... wtf?
Music - uber cool in headsets but out loud ... Only 1 speaker , the other one is just for looks
More to come :)
well im still sticking with the Samsung i900 its gonna be the best phone out there ...
this is a totally ridiculous phone, it is such a con i have been a fool by falling for the way the phone has been marketed.
no video no mms poor quality camera, if your looking for a handset to do the same for a budget price the samsung solid is a better phone.
The phone looks and feels great but it has really bad quality and other problems. I returned mine two days ago.
- I experienced that 3G is really weak and draws a lot of batteries, at least compared to an SE W890. Other have same problem.
- My casing cracked, look here for more with same problem: http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2008/08/10/our-iphone-3g-cracked-too-what-gives-apple/
- The iPhone sends private data to Apple about what applications you have installed. Have you ever heard of Nokia or SE doing that!? Look here: http://gizmodo.com/5035358/60-million-apps-sold-at-itunes-store-there-is-a-kill-switch-says-steve-jobs
Apple has taken the iPhone to the next level and added some truly mouth-watering features. 3G is lightning fast compared to EDGE, and GPS means you'll never get lost again. You still can't send MMS and there's only a 2-megapixel camera, which may annoy you, but overall it's a wonderful experience
to all of those people that think the iphone is not as good as other phones, then your wrong it is. yeah it can't send picture messages but honestly how do you actually send 1 or 2 every few months. Also people are complaining about the bluetooth, that you can't bluetooth pictures or music, have you never heard of download from the internet. anyways i think it's one of the best phones and so do may. for thoses who still think it 's a waste of space, it's your loss then. enjoy
I keep on hearing that the iphone 3g is cool and worth getting but also has its limitations. So now I'm wondering what those limitations are? are they serious limitations? because I'm planning to get the iphone 3g soon and I just want some honest feedback from users. And please "NO" bashers.
i think ppl really need to understand the concept of thing 'just working'. I have always kept up to date when it comes to mobiles and very much stayed ahead. recently i decided to by the iphone 3g and i really did feel like i was downgrading from the samsung f480. jeez i was wrong, the iphone is a really amazing phone, its just so useable and all the apps that are downloadable r amazing, n e 1 who has had an iphone will generally stick with em cos they realise just how amazing they r. and i know they will b ppl saying i had the iphone and it was sh*t blah blah blah but hey u cant win em all and no matter what ppl have to find something to grumble about. either way i really think apple iphone 3g (or not) is truly a level above as far as a usable phone!
nokia n95 and other Saks phones when came out, there was no lines..but, when iphone came out, apple stores still today in BIIIIIG LINE...can you understand this ?..if no..get f..your self
Asad, 10 Aug 2008i owned the original iphone from the beginning and now have the 3G. it is true what every one ... moresorry guy most people who bought this phone is very piss. first of all, some of the apps that are purchase from the app store does'nt work, to shell cracking mobilme at mobile joke. can't erase a lot of the old emails and etc.......by the way maybe this is'nt apple fault, but surely at&t. how are you going to charge more on the pricing for the pda just because it's 3g, don't the phone suppose to be 3g since the service is 3g. they don't charge more for the motorola 3g phone or the lg, but only for the apple. seem suspect to me
ki, 11 Aug 2008Everyone can go ahead and rant about Apple and there phones, but you cant argue with the fact ... morehi Ki, ur post is funny and true. I'm very impressed with apple. Put all the basics and have got sales figures what other brands dream about. Nokia, samsung and se sack ur design team and listen to what most people want. We don't want our phones to cook popcorn or a lens that can see into space. Who thought that sending an email or browsing pics could be so much fun.
