The Design Is Boring
I think what I hate the most about the iPhone 3G S is the design which is exactly identical to the iPhone 3G. When I pay $560.16 for a new phone, I expect to have something that looks different from everybody else. Yes, the iPhone is a phone for the elite, I admit it. I kinda miss the days of the first iPhone, when people came to me and candidly asked me “wow, is this the iPhone?”. I was proud of it. Now everyone has an iPhone, and even worse, everyone has an iPhone that looks similar.
I was really looking forward having a revamped iPhone design. To those of you arguing with this, think about it this way. What would you say if BMW came out with the same car design twice, even though the engine was different? Any car critic would just roast BMW for their lack of creativity. Strangely, no one seems to care that the iPhone design is the same as the previous one.
The Camera Still Sucks
We went from a 2 to 3 megapixels camera. It’s better than nothing but it’s still 4 years behind every other smartphone, possibly more. The camera doesn’t even come with a flash. My old BlackBerry pearl did all this 4 years ago…
New Features Are Old News
Voice dialing, video recording and copy/paste were welcome as the messiah during WWDC. That’s BS if you want my opinion. This is just a software update, and once again, any smartphone on the market has had these features for years.
The Pricing Is Scandalous
The attractive $300 price tag for the 32GB iPhone 3G S is only applicable to new AT&T customers. While I understand the whole subsidize thing, I am really pissed I have to pay $560.16 for this new phone, especially when I see that the iPhone 3G S costs about 17% more than the G1 and 32% more than the Palm Pre over the course of a 2 year contract. AT&T is cashing in on existing customers, yet it won’t give throw them a bone and sell them the iPhone 3G S at $299?
No Tethering Or MMS At Launch
This is not specific to the iPhone 3G S, but rather to AT&T. AT&T has most likely been aware of these new features for months, and it still couldn’t manage to get its shit together on time. That’s a huge fail for AT&T who claims tethering and MMS will be available “later this summer”. At least AT&T won’t charge extra for MMS but I can’t see their future tethering plan under $30. I’ll stick to PDAnet for my free tethering.
The iPhone 3G S really is a non-event for existing 3G owners but the success of the pre-orders shows once again that fanboys are willing to throw money at anything Apple releases. If it wasn’t kind of my job to have the latest iPhone, I probably wouldn’t have upgraded.
to all having a second thoughts.. buy an ipod touch.. it is 100% the same with this. except having no phone and a camera..
here is mine:
ipod touch+ SE satio = rocks.
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2009Citrix does the same for free.Yup that's why I said it's a con. I mean to said do not buy.
sopo, 19 Dec 2009can you send multimedia files with bluetooth ????to another phone ???If you want to transfer file to other wifi enable phone. There's a solution. First you had to jailbreak your iPhone and download discover app from the app store. You also need to install mywifi app, which you can found in rock or cydia store. Search the Internet for cracked version if you really can't afford to pay for it. Connect your iPhone to 3g connection. Then, use mywifi to setup a wifi hotspot and start the discover app. You will see a prompt with an ip address. Ask the receiver to connect to your wifi hotspot. Then, ask the receiver to open up safari and connect to the ip address you saw earlier. The receiver should be able to see some of your directory and files.
Anonymous, 19 Dec 2009For those who mock the iphone for not supporting flash. I have news for you guys. There's now... moreDo buy Alwaysonpc! It's a VNC app falsely advertised as firefox on iPhone. It simply display whatever running on your pc through LAN. Shame on the maker trying to conned people for 30 dollar!

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If you're in the US, the iphone 3gs would be a better choice than the htc hd2. Hd2 does not support the 3gs signals for tmobil or at&t here in the US.
