The phone is cutting edge technolgy in progress
it's beautiful and if need an attractive phone with great features GET IT touch screen is enough for me really and it's very aesthetically pleasing...I don't need it to cook dinner and take out the garbage already.
Just had to say something positive if you hate it so much why is everybody gona buy it anyway...
stop hating it's futile lol
Whoever first post here with an iphone 3G in his hand is a winner! Yeah!
I've heard of some of the cool features the new Iphone gets apart from 3G?
It has the same 2 mega pixel camera as the old one, and no flash.
It can't send Picture messages. But others can ones sent to you via a really long annoying emaily address it gives you, where you login and you get a thumbnail of the original picture. (mms)
No Copy and paste! (even phones before colour had copy and paste)
No more upgraded storage. same as old phone.
Few upgrades in software, but thats free to anyone with the original phone.
only 1 personal ring tone.
no video recording (which is strange as its meant to be be the most hi-tech phone available)
you can only use Bluetooth as your head set, and nothing else. No Stereo....
Battery can't be replaced.
screen resolution is still low, compared to other phones.
But you do get better battery life. :)
whats all d fuss abt the camera?u wanna good camera den go buy urself a slr or a dslr.its a mobile and does a lot and a lot better den other phone in the market.
This handset is so overated its not true! This is more or less a 3g version of the 1st i-phone! Still no mms, no bluetooth file transfer and no video! Not to mention it feels cheap compared to the original,each unit cost Apple £25 to make! Apple have missed a trick again! Why will it sell,coz of that little Apple logo on the back!
In less than one hour my opinion is set. It's bad. It's slow, the camera is one of the worst 2 Mp's ever. It's to dependant on internet. I could go on and on by I can't find the courage to discredit one of my favorite brands.
Apple be ashamed
sam, 10 Jul 2008i want 5 mp camera in this h/s. I like another feature of apple phone. All are goods except ca... moreWell, I know lots of people want higher MP cameras on their phones. But why bother? I mean, a camera phone, due to its size can never achieve the same quality in photography as a proper compact DC or a DSLR. iPhone's 2MP camera maybe out of date now, but I've seen photos taken by it which look nicer than the ones taken from my 3.2MP nokia N73.
The bottom line is, you never will achieve the same with a camera phone than a proper camera.
if it had a 5MP camera, it'd be worthwhile.
as it is, it's incredibly overpriced and overhyped!!
i work in the phone industry ans this is a shit phone the bluetooth is crap only for headsets no a2dp cant send mms cant forward mms and have u tried sending a text on one u better have a lot of time on your hands or skinny fingers im one of the fastest texters there is and it took me for ever on this phone. looks great yes music playback awesome internet access good but we have had all these features around for ages nokia n95 wlan 8gb bluetooth more user freindly. so what is the big deal apple has done well marketing as they always do but once u actually see and use the phone u will be like whateva just like i was.
bluetooth is work and you can send your file's.look the
write:Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
i want 5 mp camera in this h/s. I like another feature of apple phone. All are goods except camera pixel. its's a 3G h/s but his camera not according to 3G.if u change his camera pixel so change it imm. so peple like more,
I like the feature of this phone but acording to new 3rd gen. feature increased his camera pixel 3.15mp to 5mp (aprox.) instead of 2mp.
oliver, 10 Jul 2008To all you soon to be apple 3g owners i have one thing to say. Your blinded by hype, marketing... moreno phone has yet to offer the internet experience however NOR a good music player (in one combo). Some phones are great cameras, good phones, and a little extra. Well, the iPhone is a great internet device, good phone, best ipod. So it depends on what combo of features you want. Its just opinions here guys, don't go with what everyone says themselves.
oliver, 10 Jul 2008To all you soon to be apple 3g owners i have one thing to say. Your blinded by hype, marketing... moreI totally agree Oliver!! The Omnia sounds really good Im getting that in Aug...
hmm.. Sounds like its missing my fav features: Video Calling, MMS & Why have 2 megapixel cam?? When all the new mobs have 5 MEGAPIXEL.. U should all wait till the next generation iphone.. If u buy one of these now your just gonna deal with the incompetence the iphone offers?! Get the Samsung Omnia it has great features!!!!!
To all you soon to be apple 3g owners i have one thing to say. Your blinded by hype, marketing and branding of this product. Its specs are way behind the times compared to a lot of touchscreen mobiles coming out today.
Sure you might say.
"Oh its beautiful, its got apple UI, its sleek."
So what! Its no excuse for apple coming out with a product with specs that are outshined by a cheap nokia.
You might say.
"But look what you get for 299!"
Well, ahem, but thats another Steve Jobs scam.
299 bucks on an expensive plan for 2 year, and the way technology is moving now days, a year down the track you will be regretting your purchase whilst stil locked into a contract.
Do yourselves a favour. Use gsmarena compare feature and line up a samsung omnia or a htc diamond and line it up with an apple and see how it compares.
One thing I will give apple credit for is coming out with a unique design. Kudos to them. But its no excuse for coming out with a
second generation product that is so drastically lacking.
All an iphone is, is the best ipod apple ever made.
If the phone is unlocked, then you shouldn't really have any problems working on other networks. I'm in Australia and alot of ebay sellers give a 100% garentee that it can be unlocked and used on any 3g network here in Australia.
Maybe its just AT&T in America that they do this.
I don't know what to beleive anymore. I'll just wait to I get mine and make my own judgments then ;-)
In this months stuff magazine the 3g i-phone camera has been tweaked to give more accurate photos and other bits have software have been redone to make it run better..Ling forward to some good honest reviews and just going to ignore bashing,,false reports etc which can be spotted easily but its also fair to report any probs that are real too.
