MAYANEGYPTIAN, 15 Jul 2008Poor camera (2mp)with no flash,
No video recording,
No office applications (Edit word, exc... morei am a proud owner of N95, got it probably two weeks after it hit the shelves, and am very pleased with it. I also have a BB curve 8310, and I am double pleased with it, as far as typing and mail management is concerned... i intend to keep both phones...
I also intend to buy iphone 3g all the same.
All small talk below attacking or praising iphone is so stupid and even tiresome. Why compare it to other phones? Why so much energy is put in explainin iphone is not matching N95, or SE whatever number, or HTC Diamond, or Omina...?
As a BB and N95 owner, and a satisfied by both phones one, I immediately admit that I am aware that both phones are probably far better in operation than iphone. Still, I am buying iphone as it is DIFFERENT... in away which is truely APPEALING compared to other phones... no less, no more...
all i can say about apple is that in an environement where everything changes so FAST (image what phones were considered top-notch a couple of years ago), and people get so BORED with anything quite soon, providing something so DIFFERENT is a key to market success.
and all you (we) Nokia, HTC, SE, Samsung, etc, fans, should be quite thankful to apple, as their iphone put so much heat on other producers, that i expect we will see the best still coming...
plz i need help
i wanna get this phone but i want to know first if there is an application that makes the phone able to send and recieve files(like songs and stuff)via bluetooth?i know the phone doesnt have that when u buy it but is there any software update or application that gets this feature?
plz anyone who knows the answer to this help me fast
thanks in advance
"apple iphone is the only phone that makes nokia users bitter and say so many nasty words full of bitterness against this marvelous device."
yes, i notice the same. everywhere i go the most prominent anti-iPhone people are bitter Nokia users. are they upset because iPhone brought certain features and technological aspects to the forefront in ways Nokia has failed (like the App Store)?
i've never seen the Nokia people so disgruntled.
Poor camera (2mp)with no flash,
No video recording,
No office applications (Edit word, excel, ppt)
You can not share anythig through Bluetooth
It's sad how people only buy what tv and market tells them to buy... and never make a complete analysis of a device.
Im a proud user of The N95 8gb, the best all-in-one device. :)
i like iphone 3g alot because it really cool to use but there is just two thing i dont like about which is you dont have at least 3.2mp camera and stereo bluetooth
It's pretty good at what it does... And glaringly deficient in what it doesn't. So, let's see, say compared to Samsung Omnia: This has 2mp camera (vs. 5mp), no fm radio, no a2dp, no video. But it does come back with a crisp screen (16M colors) and a great user experience. Hmmmm... Come on, Stevie, bring this to par and maybe all that hype will be justified. And oh, by the way, about this being not a dedicated camera and all that jazz, sounds too much like extolling a deficiency as a virtue, doesn't it? Just call a spade, a spade. It's hardware spec is 3 years old, no going around that.
Some people are daft they say the iphone 3g is rubbish they are totally wrong
Its a very delicate and intelligent mobile. I encouraged others to buy this mobile also.I can say that this mobile is a very good idea!
apple iphone is the only phone that makes nokia users bitter and say so many nasty words full of bitterness against this marvelous device. they cant accept that iphone is the only phone that pushes incredible volume of sales in its first week. you have to wait even by the roadside and fall in a long line just to be able to be one of the first to lay hands on iphone!
i agree its a great and amazing phone! truly one of a kind! nothing does it better than apple. its the only phone that gets sold out in its first day of release!
What a big step backwards, how can you imagine such a claimed "state-of-the-art" phone can't support Bluetooth with A2DP !? Also very disappointed by the 2MP camera. Most of the competitors' PDA phone are equipped with over 3MP, some even have autofocus. I don't think it is time to get one, I guess an upgrade version of iPhone 3G shall come very soon.
great phone... not so great if ur with rogers...
even thou the price maybe as same as the states for the phone... the data and the voice plan service by rogers suck... LEADS TO... not being able to use the phone to its best ability...
IF UR PLANNING TO USE THE PHONE WITHOUT A DATA... get some other touch screen... phone is not worth it... battery life is SO-SO...on 3g its crap...
5 OUT OF 5 for the phone...
2 OUT OF 5 if ur using on rogers
1 OUT OF 5 if ur using without DATA
How much RAM does this have after start-up? And can it multitask? Like run 5 different applications at once?
Its only problem is it does not support sharing of data through Bluetooth. Other wise it is an unmatched phone in every ways.
I have a few more questions, sorry if I sound stupid, but what formats of video iphone supports? (mp4, mpeg4 whatever others are out there?) Can you somehow download whole films onto it? I heard that the new Omnia has DviX (whatever that is) and the GPS on iphone is practically useless because you don't have sound navigation, so it's just like google maps and nothing else.
My advise: buy a cheap and reliable phone, which can be a lot cheaper, so don't waste your money on this iphone or the n95. Use your money on more useful/pleasant things.
the iphone 3G is slower than an n73.
i couldnt phyisically use it in store without it crashing.
Gavin Williams, 15 Jul 2008What can I say, it's a great phone, lack of MMS and front facing camera are no biggie's to me,... morethats a long review, im bored reading it.. kidding! anyways, your right iPhone is great but their are BETTER BETTER phones than this.
enjoy your phone because your paying so much for it
Hi guys, I amthinking of buying a iphone 3G. I need some features from my phone. So can anyone of you confirm if this phone has the following features :- firstly, is it possible to download files via edge service. Secondly, does it supports dial up networking, and finaly, how good is the build quality?
What can I say, it's a great phone, lack of MMS and front facing camera are no biggie's to me, MMS is so 1999, half of the people in this country can't receive them any way because either their networks haven't activated it for them or they can't be bothered, being able to upload full quality photos to facebook, flickr, blog and email them makes up for it.
Let's face it, video calling was a gimmik, no one uses it, the only people you'll video call will be abroad because you don't see them every day, and even that's expensive! And the call quality is crap.
The camera's pretty good quality for a built in camera on a phone, it's not a dedicated camera, so every one who's complaining about the camera quality, get over your self. If you're really using your phone as a dedicated camera your just stupid.
Typing on the thing is a lot faster than using a dedicated keyboard or T9 (predictive txt), you get used to it, like anything. It's 100% responsive and corrects mistakes for you as you type.
The email client is the best I've seen by far on any mobile device, the lack of certain features (copy and paste for example) is a bit of a let down, but little things like this can be fixed with a software update.
Safari is amazing, enough said! Best browser seen on any other mobile device, it's highly responsive, and renders XHTML perfectly.
Music, amazing, so easy to use! Just like an iPod, again, best mobile music player, hands down!
Applications... well with over 800 apps since launch 4 days ago, it touts a huge library, with more apps to come, you'll never get bored.
GPS is much better than expected, it out ranked my N95 which takes an age to lock. The assisted GPS on the iPhone locks on within seconds, even in buildings. The accuracy is indicated by a blue circle around your current position. It tracks really well, on a train from home to work, and it managed to keep up.
I have to say that the only let down is the battery life. But saying that, using all of the features throughout the day is bound to drain it, the same with any other mobile device that's just as feature packed. All you need to charge it up is a USB cable, which fits in your pocket or your wallet.
10/10 best phone I've ever owned!
