Apple iPhone 3G review :
- Most glaring nickel & dime omission : a dock
- Most unsettling error message : no SIMCard installed
- Most under & over estimated spec : battery life
- Top feature that shows how useless technology can be : GPS
- Biggest design flaw : edge of the plastic back
- Maximum number of waking minutes spent without playing phonesaber since I installed it : 47
- Most underreported aspect of the iPhone 3G's performance : it's finnicky
- Most unwelcome comeback : EDGE
- Quickest firmware flip-flop : Apple making the screen less yellow
- Most perplexing thing about the iPhone 3G launch : AT&T doesn't offer apps for it.
Not true, Games: Yes, Applications: Yes
Internet/Download time: less than 2 hours(hands on experience)
N96 will kill Iphone, remember that Apple only has 1 product and has a very interesting marketing campaign, this is the reason why a lot of people were making lines for buy this device (not for the device features, only for the advertisement) but let see how long will be Apple in the battle against the leader NOKIA!!!
Hey people cooomooon, what you talking about ? if this phone is BAD, then why 3 miles line apple store every single day in USA ?? You think you guys smart and 100000 people is not? Iphone 3G is magic, and i have one now, and oh my god, you buy or free 1000000000 programs from APP STORE and enjoy every thing..I buy free some program, and this program is great.. let say you want know some Music Artist name from Radio, TV, MP3, you just hold your iphone close the speaker, and after 1 min iphone will say that singer name, music name and even you can watch video...You think your N95 or any kind of phones will work this way ?...Listen, N96 will be in the stores soon, and you think there will be big line for n96?..Never..This is 1st phone in the world, so people staying on big 3 miles line for buy this phone...Coommmaaan
I love this product! The Apple iPhone is one of the top must have products within the last ten years!! 3G, internet, maps, email, touch screen... all fantastic. I've had the iPhone for only three days and already i cant live without it. It's so much more than a phone, if you can get your hands on one buy it!!
This phone is not for stupid people.If you are an experienced computer person or you are in business field its high demand technologie.To have iphone you have to know how touse it.If someone is not related to any of these fieldsbuy regular nokia or sonyericsson.Iphone is really good and high quality computer technology that beat all cellphone sales.Design is also awsome.Only one thin that iphone hasproblem not remomovable battery.But it has warranty.So enjoy it.Sometimes it will make a problem, but nothing is ideal even human being.
ok not being rude but.... infared i can live without.. BUT
bluetooth i dont think so lmao! Gr8 idea apple...
American's need to pressure networks to up the ante and place them on a level playing field with europe.I can't believe you guys are happy with YESTERDAYS technology!Here in europe we regualary get download speeds in excess of 1.5mbit,you in the usa are crawling along using GPRS lol lol.Most europeans are using devices with at least a 3.2mp cam with carl ziess optics we are also used to our phones using OPERA browsers,torrent clients,mp3 editors etc etc Iphone is like a lame two year old model to most of us!fortunately for apple there is a some europeans who desire a low spec FASHION phone.
went into my local o2 store today to buy the 3g iphone.
ive had reservations about the phone due to all the applications etc its missing. however i sat down to get one and the nice gentleman brought the box to the table.so when i asked the sales person to demonstrate the ring volume on his personal iphone i nearly wet my pants with laughter.
"yes he replied it is a bit quiet "
so he went through all the tones available on the phone and i could hardly make them out. "it is a bit noisy in here tho" he said.
yes but isnt that the point, trying it in everyday enviroments. i mean do i have to be in a small room on my own to hear it.
sorry apple but for all its glorious features the phone is so let down by some basic stuff.LIKE BEING ABLE TO HEAR THE DAMN THING.
"I DONT BELIEVE IT" WHAT A WASTE OF TIME
ROLL ON THE NOKIA N96 OR SE C905
Purchased my iPhone 3G on launch day and despite 02 taking a good 5 days to activate my sim, I must say this is by far the best phone I have ever had the pleasure to own. Believe me when I say once you have used one of these bad boys you will never look at another phone again, and that's coming from a previously VERY loyal Sony Ericsson cellphone owner.
the apple i phone 3g is such an amazing phone . the feautures are so cool and at such a low price . where can i buy it
If SUPERIOR phones like the n81,n82,n95,n96,e90 etc with advanced operating systems are to complicated for you then your probably better buying iphone
Artemon, 16 Jul 2008this is the...champion!!!What champion Man ,Nothing infront of HTC Daimond
apple i phone why they are not introdusing blutooth connectivity (only head set ) its very bad. we will wait for that?
the phone is ok but seriously if anyone asks if they can get 1 just reply no as it only took 3 major phone companys 2 hours to sell out completely of the 16gb version. what is all the hype about.............................................. please if anyone wants to reply feel free.. il be keeping an eye on the events to do with nthe iphone
All deficiencies noted are sadly true. I want very much to like this product but it's just so retarded. Try again, Steve. I'll get version 3.... if that's not 3 years obsolete by that time, that is.
