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.
me too waiting for this phone. hope this phone fulfill all the desires we need in phone.
Narcolepsy, 09 Jul 2008No card slot,No mms,No video calling,No stereo bluetooth, only 2mp camera. Wow great 3G fone!!... moreumm actually they have announced that there applications for all those problems...its all about the sofware.
Phonelover, 09 Jul 2008Hi, First of all, thanks for the best mobile site on the planet! My question is something ab... morewell it looks like its gonna be that you have to have some sort of wireless connection while using the gps because google maps doesn't have pre loaded maps like something such as Tom Tom. So A-GPS, which is in most phones, has to have a connection, either wifi or 3G, to work. Great thing is though that all the big reviewers have said that the gps is VERY accurate...always good to hear from a phone.
who ever said this phone is unlocked is on some serious crack... @ att they have a new activate process which makes it impossible to be activated or unbricked in any other way to another carrier. plus u cant get this phone unless u get att service and its only new activations for now... sux ass nah?!
First of all, thanks for the best mobile site on the planet!
My question is something about the iphone3g…
On the site, in the specs, it’s written by the features - Built-in GPS receiver
and - A-GPS function
Is there really an receiver inside?
I would like to know for sure.
Thanks and keep on reviewing!!
Regards Glenn Belgium
I heard that it is going to launch at Japan two more days don't when will it come to Malaysia..... I'm so going to have one for myself
Hurray!!!! Iphone 3G
The Wall Street Journal reviewed the phone for a week and said the biggest cons that come with the new 3G iPhone are:
1). Only 4hr and 27mins of talk time.
2). Small GPS antenna incapable of a strong signal strength.
3). No visible changes in the 2.0 software besides the support for Microsoft Exchange.
1). Better body
2). Faster and more responsive then the later
3). 3G works great
Halley, 09 Jul 2008What resolution does this beauty record videos?0x0 pixels at 0fps.
it doesnt record video.
although i believe theres an application which makes it capable of recording in HD at a low framerate.
this phone is crap and not worth it you cant picture msg you can bluetooth anything you have to put your contact in 1 by 1 n thats a pain im going to buy it but apple is going to have another version with all them mistakes i listed above fixed...
when u unlock the iphone, you get an applicaton installer, from there you can install hundreds of apps for free.... i can send mms off my iphone, this app installer makes your iphone do so so so much more than you think.... i have to original 2g, and if the 3g is anything like it then nothging on the market compares to it in terms of slickness, smoothness, and alround just wokring.... perks of apple products.... they just work, unlike all else. only phone close to this are blackberrys.
No card slot,No mms,No video calling,No stereo bluetooth, only 2mp camera. Wow great 3G fone!!. Samsung i900 leaves this phone in it's wake. All the above and more + 5mp cam. Tough choice.
practically,it does not have bluetooth. you can do nothing with this "mobile". it,s stunning,why does it have some much sucess????? i can't explain. it's worse than a nokia 6300,6233
no no no, it DOES have bluetooth, it just doesn't support stereo bluetooth.
So you can only use the bluetooth for a bluetooth headset... but not for sending contacts, ringtones, or listen with a stereo bluetooth headset.
I held one of these today and it feels reeeeally nice in the hand. I really like the new plastic backing, the black looks really sharp.
The only thing that's really bugging me is no MMS and no A2DP support... the camera, cut and paste, and others are just minor.
Still on the fence whether I should get it or not!
No MMS; No Video Calling on teh "3G" handset, uh well now nearly a AU$1,000 sounds like a real bargain here... what are people getting so worked up about, in 6 months time (probably less) there will be an even better make and model on the market... Good luck with this one.
