"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.
therock, 02 Jul 2009thanks, man.
whats keeping me from owning an iphone again is the camera part. i owned an ip... moreThat n93 had 3x optical zoom. Wow. How was that.
The e72 as well 1500 mah battery and 10.2mpbs 3g.
If the networks offer 10.2, i guess that would be quicker then iphone 3gs and the battery is strong to support it.
Allan, 02 Jul 2009Hey man, hows it going.Good points.thanks, man.
whats keeping me from owning an iphone again is the camera part. i owned an iphone 2g and sold it. 3g and 3g -s have no major differences from each other.
so nokia for me. i like the all around functionality of an N-series and the 5800 touchscreen. i also have used the n93i. one unique phone (mini video cam corder style by twisting and folding)and it was an eyecatcher when i go to the apple store or att store.
now, my eyes are set on the e75.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2009this iphone is like the razr...just a new one with some little updates. if you want an unique... moreWell said. But people obviously don't want an unique phone, since 20 million bought one and the same phone. That's a pity and says a lot about their mentality. Also, why bother buying one when you can look at them for free on every corner?
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2009Why GSMArena is not writing a review for the 3Gs???!!!They did.
this iphone is like the razr...just a new one with some little updates.
if you want an unique phone wait to the android phones from motorola and samsung.....or buy the AURA
[deleted post]You still dont have the infra struture to support iphone 3gs.
You know what that means? It means theres not enough battery power for a heavy user.
Theres also no substitution for swapping a low battery for a fully charged one.
Not even kensington. Kensington user reports iphone battery at 10% and it takes 70 minutes to bring the iphone up to only 50%. Using whatever iphone at the same time as kensington, its harder to gain battery strength.
Get over yourselves., 01 Jul 2009Its really sad that people bash the iPhone... because of its camera, who cares really I just n... moreone more thing. the functions that you mentioned about the iphone, the n-series also has those..photo, internet, ipod, video, and more. in other words multi-media.
you dont know the N-series, do you?
[deleted post]it's funny and ironic the word card was in your post. YOU HAVENT GOT ONE. memory card that is.
Gallery takes to long to open you say. If that ever happens you defrag the memory card. I tested that with my n95. i card must be defraged. Haven't gotten around to doing it yet.
When i put in the other memory cards i have and press gallery switch on the side the picture opens in about 2 to 3 seconds.Those cards need no defraging.
BTW i've seen the pictures on the n97 with its better screen res then iphone 3gs. They were CRYSTAL CLEAR.
Get over yourselves., 01 Jul 2009Its really sad that people bash the iPhone... because of its camera, who cares really I just n... morethe idea of a smarphone or pda having a great a camera is for the conveniency of having one device in public. anywhere you go at anytime you have a camera with you.
Any n-series cant outsell an iphone?..lol. Those N-series that you are refering to are iphone cripplers by the all around functionality..ie the n95, n97, n931. ill also throw in in the e-serie..ie the e90, e71, e75, now the e72 is coming out with a high mp camera and 600 processor.
dont get me wrong!! the iphone is a brilliant device. all it needs now is a great camera to be an all around device.
[deleted post]software problems can be fixed. Your hardware problems cant be fixed. 1 speaker. Poor battery and no flash.
Its really sad that people bash the iPhone... because of its camera, who cares really I just need a reliable phone that has a easy interface, Its the most reliable portable media device, its a iPod and it can take video. Who cares about the 3.15MP camera, Hey apple know there going to sell millions of these so they Don't need to put a 5-10 MP camera in the device, if you want a device with a 10MP Lens.....BUY A CAMERA.....
It's the perfect phone and with millions of applications there's little if no flaws with the device, Im not saying it's perfect but its a lot better than other devices in the same price category.
The iPhone is a solid device and it's easy to txt on.....
All I have to really say is to the people who are bashing the iPhone, wake up if the phone is that bad.... why is it selling like crazy?? I very much doubt a single Nokia Phone Model can outsell the iPhone.
You Wont Regret selling one in my opinion, I've had great success with mine and will most likely buy the upgrade in a years time.
Still no flash and 3 MP camera!!! Does Apple believe people are going to buy the iPhone forever just because of the GUI? Its specifications would be acceptable 4 or 5 years ago, not anymore. I hope someday they wake up and make an iPhone that can compete with other phones in their proce range. When that day comes, I'll buy one.
