Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009The point is Don't exagerate.I can use my iphone built in camera to detect skin cancer(melanoma) and i can also detect police radar and laser and jam it.I can also change red lights with my iphone so its green lights all the way for me,can your n97 do all that?
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009The point is Don't exagerate.Oh so after all the pages and pages of exaggerated comments from iphone haters against the iphone, you chose to stay quiet, but when you saw one thing that I posted, just one thing, that needed clarification (glucometer), and you react like I killed someone. Wow, you're not biased huh? lol
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009Big thing is the iphone cant take good quality pics as a nokia n97 can and it cant zoom up wit... moreWell I don't think that the Apple released the iphone so it can replace your digital camera. For day to day pictures to be loaded to facebook and social networks, the iphone's camera is decent enough. If you go to special events, bring your digital camera for pete's sake and don't depend on any phone, not even the n97, to take pictures. But of course, if you cannot afford a digital camera, I guess an n97 is a good choice =)
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009Well fine a glucose tracker then. The point is, the iphone does a lot of things other phones ... moreBig thing is the iphone cant take good quality pics as a nokia n97 can and it cant zoom up with crystal clear clarity. For a multimedia device you carry around all the time the iphone isnt good for photo browsing.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009" Why would I use fm on a phone when i have fm in my car, at home and at work? Fm is not somet... moreNot all phones have fm buddy. Check again. And why are you pitting all phones vs iphone? LOL.
Yeah sure, other phones have features that the iphone does not have. Features that are not really important =)
On no buddy, the iphone will keep it's resolution the way it is and users will appreciate than because their 1st gen iphone can still make use of any apps, compared to symbian and winmo that would leave its users in the dark as long as their spec sheets look good =)
Thanks but no thanks. We won't settle for fake and cheesy surround sound unless it really works like it. We won't fall for specs like you do just because it sounds impressive.
Oh please mister, we all know that symbian and winmo lags and freezes the moment you store a lot of data in it, lol.
Here's the reason why others integrate that 3rd camera video calling thing. It's so it would look good on paper. But does it really work? Nope. No one uses it, and when they do, the quality is useless. When Apple decides to include that on the iphone, it would be working the way it should and it would make sense why they would have that on there, and not just because it would look good on paper.
Oh yes it's about me as a user and the millions of others who bought the iphone. For us, it's not a big deal because we have real DVD players and big screen tv's. Divx on phones do not impress us like it does you =)
All users have different needs. But the iphone seems to be the only phone who provides the needs of their users and gives a topnotch performance it what it has to offer. Other phones gives what their users need, but does not deliver as it should. Example, giving users a lot of memory space when their device lags halfway full, lol, and what's the use of that memory when you don't have enough apps?, lol. High screen resolutions but renders useless outdoors, lol. Offers Divx but where would their users get their videos? Offer fake surround sound effects, but rates low on tests, lol. Offer 3rd camera, but no one uses it because it has such bad quality and just does not work, lol.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009Uh,excuse me there sunshine."A glucometer" You cant test a diabetics blood sugar with the ipho... moreWell fine a glucose tracker then. The point is, the iphone does a lot of things other phones don't.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009Also, I know that we are comparing mobiles not cars, but I have to bring it up to make a point... more" Why would I use fm on a phone when i have fm in my car, at home and at work? Fm is not something that I would constantly need all throughout the day"
Point is All have FM . Apple doesnt. YOU might not need and its not about YOU. Others do need it. New Nano is the prove Apple considers it important. If iphone gets it next yr it would be 10 Years late.
"What you're doing is, you're combining all features found from 5 different phones and compare it to the iphone"
Point is Apple is £500 phone missing host of features offered by lower priced rivals.
"Apple will not change their screen resolution until they could have all apps tied to screen resolution be compatible with higher resolution displays. That is how considerate Apple is"
That is it plans to stay Jurassic for at least one year more.
"Surround sound on a phone is not necessary"
Might not be to you. For others it is. Please dont run away from the fact iphone doesnt have this. Take a deep breath and accept it.
"The iphone can handles 32gigs smoothly ....."
Any thing over it cant take. Cheaper rivals can.
"What good is video calling when no one is using it. It's a waste of hardware space"
Its a technology which Apple doesnt seem to posses and there is a reason why all manufactures integrate it in this segment. Otherwise it would have been dropped long time ago.
"As I have said divx is good for video reproduction. I don't need that on my iphone because I prefer to watch movies on a big screen tv"
Again its not about you. Its about Apple missing out on features offered by lower priced rivals.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009Also, I know that we are comparing mobiles not cars, but I have to bring it up to make a point... moreFor example.Recorded sugar levels from ones machine put onto the iphone, gives one the chance to see where the levels are high thru out the day and make the necessary adjustments in insulin or eating habits.Not everydays activities are always the same.Highs and lows will still occur.
Now that we know the iphone cant test ones blood sugar,so its cant be used literally as a glocumeter.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009Also, I know that we are comparing mobiles not cars, but I have to bring it up to make a point... moreUh,excuse me there sunshine."A glucometer" You cant test a diabetics blood sugar with the iphone without drawing blood.Where does one put the test strip into the iphone to drop the blood on?? Its for more like putting your readings from ones machine onto the iphone for it to help you monitor ones blood sugar.Get your facts straight.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009money is not a matter for me, i use my money to buy a real best phone, im sorry , i will never... moreHey retard, no one is dictating you on where you should spend your money at. You should learn to show respect as well.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009"And the iphone's screen resolution is not jurassic. A lot of android phones have that resolut... moreAlso, I know that we are comparing mobiles not cars, but I have to bring it up to make a point why we do not need fm on our iphone. Why would I use fm on a phone when i have fm in my car, at home and at work? Fm is not something that I would constantly need all throughout the day.
You have a closed mentality. A spare battery is not the only option. The iphone has cases that serve as chargers as well. We don't need spare batteries.
What you're doing is, you're combining all features found from 5 different phones and compare it to the iphone.
Can your phone be used as a blood pressure monitor, a remote dvr recorder, a garage door opener, a remote control for tv and home theater, an interactive gaming device, deposit checks, html 5 support, glucometer, work out meter device, etc?
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009"And the iphone's screen resolution is not jurassic. A lot of android phones have that resolut... moreWell you know what, your Nokia devices do not care about apps compatibility unlike Apple and Android devices do. Apple will not change their screen resolution until they could have all apps tied to screen resolution be compatible with higher resolution displays. That is how considerate Apple is.
Surround sound on a phone is not necessary. It seems like other phone manufacturers just like to put those features in to make their specs look good. And of course you fell for it. But really, why would I need surround sound on my iphone. It obviously did not help nokia in the music player tests, because the iphone still has the best music reproduction based on the tests. Surround sound works best when you have 5 speakers. How many speakers do your nokia devices have? Does it have a sub woofer? All they're doing is giving it a FAKE surround sound fx, but who are you trying to fool?
As I have said, phones are still not as powerful as laptops and desktop computers. The iphone can handles 32gigs smoothly if ever you save that much data in it. Anything more than that may compromise performance, and that is not what the iphone is all about. Other phones would offer memory card expansion up to 32gigs, but performnace is already compromised at 8gigs, but they don't care as long as the specs look good. That is what's happening witg symbian and winmo devices. They throw in specs that is more than what their devices can handle just so that it would look good on paper, and you silly ones fall for it, lol. Lagging and freezing anyone?!
What good is video calling when no one is using it. It's a waste of hardware space.
As I have said divx is good for video reproduction. I don't need that on my iphone because I prefer to watch movies on a big screen tv. It is not a bad thing, but it is not essential either. Apple has a lot of features that they are planning to add to the iphone. But like I said, Apple is not just about adding features in just because other phones have it. They want to make sure that the feature that they add would really serve its purpose and would work really well. They're also considering the design on how to keep the iphone slim even when adding more features. Other phonemakers don't care. Look at how fat the n900 is, lol.
hye, 20 Sep 2009You people are weird... this phone costs the same amount as a macbook and the mac has better ... moreYou're actually the weird one. You're also poor in mathematics. A mac book is triple the price of the iphone, so how can you say that they are similarly priced? Sorry but we couldn't find a phone better than the iphone. Before you mock the iphone using plastic, you may want to check other phones as well, because they also use plastic :) You're really weird. You hate the iphone but you have it, lol. Gosh another silly person. I doubt if you really own an iphone though. The iphone is scratch resistant, especially its display. You're probably a sloppy person if your iphone scratches easily. Don't blame the product for your mishandling of your device. Also, another proof that you're silly. Hitler and Jobs are obviously not twins. They have different parents, different descent, & different birth dates. See how silly you are? Hahahahahaha
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009money grandma? Naa u dont have money...people that have money like me have got the vertu signa... moreLol, so now you have the vertu. So what? Who cares? This thread is about the iphone. If your son couldn't stand the heat in the kitchen, then I guess he better step out. This would be a good opportunity for you to teach your son of respecting other people. Take your son to lego land :) If you want me to stop posting, stop hating :)
Nokia N900 is Official runs Maemo Linux and is the Best Nokia Phone Ever and will crush all the apples and berrys you know its true or stick with your kiddy app phones".
so there fore my n900 is the best and i am considreball more richer than yaw n900 the future here and in the futre iphone like the squire wheel bin it
FLoyd Mayweather, 20 Sep 2009@ ucXe : you just dont have the money to buy iPHONE. how poor. ;Dmoney is not a matter for me, i use my money to buy a real best phone, im sorry , i will never let apple step in my life n ruin my standard
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2009Yes, the omnia may have better screen resolution, but the iphone's display is still more legib... more"And the iphone's screen resolution is not jurassic. A lot of android phones have that resolution as well"
All touch Nokia's are 640x360. Top Samsungs/LGs even beaten that and OLEDs are common. Hence it is jurassic and u know it.
"Omnia may have surround sound, but the iphone's music reproduction of its music player is still the best"
A lot of cheap ~£40 XpressMusic phones are surround sound. Shame ~£500 iphone hasnt.
"It's nice that omnia has hd, but it's really not a big deal for us. HD would be important for my tv, not my phone"
Point is Omnia is HD. Iphone isnt. HD would be more common next yr. May be by that time Apple would woke up.
"32 gigs is more than enough for anyone"
Not everyone. many ppl want more. Through expansion HD goes over 32 GB. Iphone cant.
"Please do not brag about omnia's video calling features because I've never seen anyone use it"
Point is top-end Samsung, Nokia etc got it. Iphone hasnt. U "CANT" use it. We "CAN".
"Now why would I need divx on my iphone? I have a big sceeen tv at home...... I guess divx support on a phone is impressive to them, not to us"
We are comparing mobiles not TVs. DivX support is impressive to lots of us. Apple may get it nxt yr. Late again.
"We don't need fm on our iphone. I'm not saying it is bad, but why would I need fm when I have pandora and xm apps on my iphone? Btw, my car has fm"
We are comparing mobiles not cars. FM is important for many. Counted as an "update" on this yrs Nano. Apple may integrate it next yr. Late Again.
"Yes, you need removable batt for your omnia when it freezes, lol"
Your "lol" on this shows u r hiding from comparing features seriously. Carrying a spare battery may be useful in certain times or in certain places. iphone doesnt gives u that flexibility. Fact.
"My point is. Omnia does not beat the iphone in all aspects. Especially on features that really matters"
Features that really matters are subjective to opionions. The truth is cheaper Omnia's, Nseries, SE Walkman's offer a host of features which have become stantard across the mobile industry and iphone doesnt offer them. The integration of FM radio on the Nano proved Apple waking up to what has become common in the mp3 market. Next yr iphone may get it.......if so it would be almost 10 yrs late- Nokia 8310 had FM in in 2001.
