What they don't reali... moreFor the dumb? Think your phrasing is a bit questionable but I understand what you mean. The iPhone has been designed to make it user friendly with innovation, so that anyone can use it, not just people who are tech savvy.
What Apple have done is elimanted features that are not desperately important and replaced them with a wide selection of Apps. I, along with many people who have bought the iPhone, aint too bothered about the size of the camera. Yeah a flash would have been great but by it not being there didnt exactly stop me getting this phone as im not too bothered. Bluetooth being headset support: I prob used bluetooth about once every few months for file transfers, so this aint exactly life or death. Headset was the most important for me. Flash in the browser: yes when it comes down to viewing videos online, you need flash but again the overall browsing experience has not been comprimised. And with apps such as YouTube and DailyMotion, as well as TVcatch up via the Safari browser, this more that makes up for it.
So every mobile manufacturer copies each other. However what Apple have done is create a grounbreaking device which clearly has influenced so many other brands. The pathetic famous words "iPhone Killer" wouldnt exist otherwise. And no phone has any chance of "killing off" the iPhone.

What they don't realise is that didn't Apple copied others by integrating a camera into their phone. Touchscreen market was already there before Apple arrived. LG had capacitive screen phone. The UI icons characteristic of the iPhone OS were first seen on Nokia 7710 ( have a look : http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_7710-pictures-921.php ). Wi-Fi, GPRS, 3G, GPS... Why don't you say that Apple copied all these things. Its easy to say that everybody is copying Apple until you get to understand the evolution of mobile phones. The only credit Apple can take is to bring all the good things together in one device good that is easier to user suitable for the dumb and marketed it well with their penchant of closed source and proprietory stuff.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970xxx the nearest you've been to an iPhone is a cardboard cut out of the phone which you held in your hand at the same time as your Samsung Jet. lol
Remember mate, save some of that pocket money every week and you'll be able to buy an iPhone later at xmas :)
No camera flash, 3.2mp camera....oh im so gutted! Think i'll just sell my iPhone and go for a phone with a bigger camera and flash as this is the most important feature. I mean if the phone rings i'll ignore it, if I get texts i'll ignore it, just so I can take pictures all day on my PHONE. And when im showing my phone to my friends, i'll turn it around and show the back and say WOW look at my camera. Again the camera is the most important feature on the phone as most normal people go round taking photos all day on their phones.....

Steena, 22 Mar 2010Can anyone tell me if they have had any bad exp with the 3gs? screen, Batt, repairs in the fir... moreThe touch screen is very organic and fluid on the iphone 3gs. People who have never used one and have used other touch screen phones are really missing the experience of true fluidity with the iphone. I have had my screen lock up a couple of times already but it seems to go away within seconds and is really not an issue.
The great thing about the touch screen on the iphone is how natural and comfortable it is to use, there is no learning curve whatsoever. It is very straight forward in this regard. What I also like is that you wont accidentally dial anyone or end a call early because the phone can sense when you are holding it vs when it is against your ear. This comes in very hand actually.
It is a nice device I just really wish it was a better phone. I live just outside Manhattan and I have endless amounts of dropped calls. I already mentioned that I have switched off the 3g so the phone would be more stable and it is on EDGE.
As for the neophyte that keeps repeating himself stating GSM Arenas review about the iphone 3gs' sound quality I wish I could slap you, you a such a little b*tch of a man. You come here with your holier than though attitude brandishing esoteric statistics and kindergarden verbiage thinking you are impressing someone or that my the mere mention of your "facts" the reality will go away.
I have the iphone 3gs and so does my gf, I have used numerous cell phones and am somewhat of a techy. I know what quality is, I know what good sound is. The GSM Arena review is complete bullocks trust me on this one my friend. There are numerous phones on the market now and in the recent past that blow away the iphone in reception, call quality and sound. This can easily be realized if you compare the sound components on the iphone 3gs vs other phones. The fact remains that the speaker on my Motorola v8 was significantly better in every way. It is not even comparable. The iphone 3gs is not the end all be all of phones. Even Apple has admitted they need to improve the phone part of it. Hopefully the 4th generation will be free of these shortcomings.
Can anyone tell me if they have had any bad exp with the 3gs? screen, Batt, repairs in the first month?
Ive had my N97 fixed 3 times and want a new completely diff phone, over it! haha
Let me know.
