hahahahahahahaha Apple fans read the Apple iPhone 3GS review.
The new iPhone 3GS lacks the same novelty factor as its predecessors - the lack of design changes is a turn-down
3 megapixel camera with limited feature set hardly cuts it for a high-end device
There's still no flash or hardware shutter key for the camera
Despite the upgrade, battery life is still generally poor (2-year old iPhone 2G are still doing way better)
No stereo speakers (or are we pushing it too far already?)
And you still make fun on the N97!!!
I always wondered why Apple dose not have key software features eg - The ability to send and recieve business cards.
Now I know.... it is designed by engineers in the US where the technology is way behind than Asia / Europe hence the lack of a lot of features
Apple engineers please take a look at all the other phones out there and add features that are given free with other phones like nokia , se , samsung , win mo, android , palm etc

Check the audio test results for the 3GS in the GSM Arena, you can't get better than "perfect" reproduction.

You lose your licence for three months, say I lost 3 points today I'd be on nine points for the next three years.

the best music/media player i've tested will be the creative x-fi with the super amps and superlative audio output.. as fer headphones, the best is to go in-ears of course and the best brand on the market is the UltimateEars (UE) professional costing around US$900.
therock, 02 Jul 2009the optical zoom is much more crystal clear and sharp than the digital zoom.i agree with this..
in photography practises, optical zoom is always better than digital zoom. only noobs rely and check digital zoom anyways. but there are of course great phones out there who dont have optical zoom due to hardware limitations and therefore only have digital zoom.

The guy said i have contacts.
Cop replies, I don't care who you know you're gonna have to wear your glasses!

It's funny how the point system works. Here we start with none and hopefully keep it that way.
3 years to get the points back. That doesn't apply to your license as well does it?

Using a phone in a car here gets you a $330 fine and you lose 3 points off your licence (you start with 12, if you lose them all you lose your licence.) it takes three years to get the points back.

Hey man, with a fm transmitter as in the n97 which i heard works really well, i'm assuming when calls come in you can talk hands free thru the radio?? Or strictly for music?
Hmm. Kensington only works with 2.0 firmware not 2.1 or 2.2 according to someone who bought it.

The Kensington spare battery I have is useful for a quick top up when I fall down beside my Ford and can't open the door.
Then I can use my mini USB charger to charge the battery and phone while I sober up enough to find the keyhole and get my Ford started.

"software problems can be fixed. Your hardware problems cant be fixed. 1 speaker. Poor battery and no flash."
Walk into any electronics or HiFi store, car dealership etc and you will find hundreds of things which take advantage of this, as pointed out in the GSM Arena review:-
"Audio duality (sic) deserves a High-Five
Just when we thought that they cannot get much better in this area and here come Apple to surprise us. The audio quality of the iPhone 3G was almost as good as it gets on a portable device and now with the iPhone 3GS it is simply perfect.
The iPod's bigger brother provides the best sonic experiences on the market with all of its readings simply remarkable.
As far as the improvements over the previous gen iPhones is concerned, the iPhone 3GS sports a much improved frequency response with the other readings almost on par. No one will probably be able to tell the differences in distortion levels for example, but this is mostly because the iPhone 3G performed flawlessly there to begin with."
If you like listening to music you won't do it through a tiny little phone spesker.
The battery is only considered "poor" because people use them so much, I have always been a heavy user of phone's and take steps ie car charger, spare battery, spare data cable to plug into USB to ensure I never have a flat battery, I do this and have done this for every phone I've owned.
Flash, hahahaha, go to a two dollar shop, buy a keyring LED torch, there you go now you can match most phone flashes.
Allan, 02 Jul 2009That n93 had 3x optical zoom. Wow. How was that.
The e72 as well 1500 mah battery and 10.2m... morealthough it was more thicker than the n95 (because of its design) it was great. the optical zoom is way better than digital zoom. the led flash is weak though. I liked the fact that it can be transformed in three different ways...flip phone, cam corder, mini lap top.
speaking of transformed. the n93i appeared in the first transfomer movie.
