I agree, I've owned all the Apple Iphones and they have limited features, even the camera is only 3.15 MP, quite poor really being $1300 in stores in NZ. Not recommended, the sony ericsson w905 is better!

A phone can only do so much. Even with the iphone's advanced OS, it still has its limits. Meaning, you still need to know how to use it practically for it to work smoothly. And there are just features that make more sense to do using standalone devices. Like watching HD movies for instance. I don't know. For me, I'd rather wait till I get home and enjoy an HD movie on my big screen TV, or, when I'm on the go, I'd rather watch movies on my laptop. On regular days, watching movie (unless in a movie theater) is not even a part of my plans.
As for the iphone crashing. In the 2 yrs that I have had my iphone, I remember hard setting it only 3 times. Don't ask me how many times I had to reset my winmo and symbian devices before I had my iphone. You should know.
Multi tasking is another one of those features that the iphone does not really need. Its interface is friendly enough that it can even switch between apps much faster than other devices that can multi task. There's a video on youtube comparing the iphone 3gs to the n97. It showed how the iphone switched between apps w/out multi tasking, and then it also showed the n97 swiching apps using multi tasking. Iphone switched apps faster. But the n97 needs multi tasking because it would probably even take longer for it to switch apps w/out running all apps at the same time. But, iphone saves battey power by not having to use multi tasking.
after 5 mounth use iphone
i want to get moto droid

C.R, 31 Oct 2009i have a question for the true apple owner`s and operator`s here ,what is the best protection ... moreFor good quality iphone cases, I buy mine online at iphone caze.com, but there are other good ones online as well like incase.
It's really funny, all the people dissing the iPhone. Don't hate it cuz' u can't afford it.
i just became a fan of this iphone and purchased one outright but why does the battery only last not even 2 days ????
i have a question for the true apple owner`s and operator`s here ,what is the best protection for the iphone to guard against scraches?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You say in your list 'no real push email', well as the iPhone uses the same Exchange Active Sync therefore is exactly the same as all other smartphones apart from Blackberry.
Now the thing is Blackberries are incapable of performing most of the other functions on your list eg 3megapixel camera max, the worst touchscreen ever devised (storm), no video calling, etc, etc.
Therefore your list describes a non existant phone.
Haters, please try using it... Don't just read from the internet. USE IT a bit and you'll understand.
chandresh, 30 Oct 2009can anyone please tell me how does one backup the iphone?Place iphone behind rear tires,get in your car and back up!
I received my iPhone 3gs. I must say I was anti apple until I started using this work of art. I loved my windows mobile and all things Microsoft. I still do but this affair with the iPhone has transformed me back to a teenager. It's intuitive keyboard, the graphics, the user menu( needs a slight getting used to), the speed of the OS, the graphics, the iPod.......I can go on and on....is an experience. This is a must have especially if you have a wifi connection. And oh yes the web browsing is awesome.
ps. This is typed from my iPhone

We love our iphones to the last drop. Yes it may not have the high res, Amoled screen, 8mp cam, video call cam, flash, bluetooth, removable battery, Fm radio and Fm transmitter like the Omnia hd but its still the most talked about phone sense the brick phone. Why do I need to walk around with all that tech in my pocket? I no alot of persons would want the Omnia hd and if they knew I had one they might try to rob me and take my phone. With my iphone I no am safe cause even the crack heads have one. And to fight off robers from taking your phone there is an app for that so leave us alone we are not into all that high tech stuff. Watch when the Omnia hd comes out world wide crime will go up. So tell me why should I get one again? We love our Iphones you are just a hater! And what the hell is Amoled? It really sounds cool tho. Am open minded so am going to watch some youtube videos and check the specs before I become a Omnia hd hater. The next iphone will be better tho, read a few pages back steve jobs was here and said he was sorry for the iphone and we belive him.

So yeah, why be able to use a mobile for a full day when it can look fancy instead?
"what the iphone has is practically good enough for a smartphone."
Good enough? what bout the most advanced computer? wow... that's a slight change...
"The iphone focuses more on smooth, stable & fast performance."
How about that freezings that force you to hard reset?
Wasn't the 3G fast enough? What did they put that powerhog chip to run MMS?
"It does not compromise performance by jampacking it with features that are not quite necessary."
No, it doesn't have multitasking.
So yeah, I guess the iphone OS is just an experiment for sheep, hopefully it will get better in time.
soulchild, 30 Oct 2009The iphone is the best phone on the market. It has a 3mp camera which is almost up to industry... moreYour sarcasm does not serve you right.
Do I need a thick jacket in tropical island? Do I need a snow mobile in Vegas? Do I need dark sunglasses at night?
You see, thick jackets, snow mobiles and dark sunglasses are all cool stuff. But they don't make sense all the time depending on your situation.
Of course it would be nice to have an 8mp camera, an amoled screen, higher resolution, etc on the iphone. But will those nice features be practical on my phone? Videos are played crisp and clear on the iphone, why would I pay more and consume more battery for higher resolution? 8mp photos need to be downgraded to be able to get uploaded to social networks. No need to do that with 3mp photos. Fm radio and transmitters require hardware space. Do I really need a chunky phone to accomodate features that I would unlikely use?
Hey, it's your choice. But what the iphone has is practically good enough for a smartphone. The iphone focuses more on smooth, stable & fast performance. It does not compromise performance by jampacking it with features that are not quite necessary.
Again, nothing wrong with better specs and more features. But if it compromises performance and user experience, I'd rather have less.
soulchild, 30 Oct 2009The iphone is the best phone on the market. It has a 3mp camera which is almost up to industry... moreWell thaught my friend, you are a true american and an intelligent person.
Indeed a more expensive phone MUST be better and that's exactly what we're here for at apple!
iPhone is the most advanced computer on the planet even if we offer no features compared to the competition!

The iphone is the best phone on the market. It has a 3mp camera which is almost up to industry standards. It has no front facing cam but who cares. The iphone has low res of 360x460 but what do you expect for $900? The iphone has no flash but tell me who needs flash on a phone? Iphone users dont even need bluetooth. And for all the haters who like to come to this forum talking about the Omnia HD we dont care about the HD recording and 8mp cam with flash or the Amoled screen or the removeable battery or the bluetooth or the Fm Radio or the Fm transmitter or the vido call cam cause the iphone is still better because it cost more and the more expensive device has to be better. Our iphone still works ok so we dont need the new tech in the Omnia hd. People will still buy the iphone cause they have alot of TV promos and the Omnia HD is to new and Hi-tech to compare with that. One day our iphones will have all these things the Omnia HD has and what will all you haters say then??
