The iPhone is one of the most powerful phones on the market and one of the most reliable phones. I feel for people who dont have the iPhone and never have who sit on here all day bitter a twisted wishing they could have/afford an iphone, slating the phone becuase they dont have one! Unlucky people Apple have once again produced the best phone on the market! The UK mobile awards 2009 last week, the iPhone won handset of the year as voted for by CUSTOMERS and DEALERS. Face facts the iphone is better than your phone!

N97 is around $300 cheaper than the Iphone 16GB, and has more apps availible as well. Just as you said: "N97 has apps for everything", while the Iphone obviously doesn't.

Seriously, you must be joking. The App Store's existance has the complete opposite meaning.
Apple let us down..., 12 Jun 2009I wanted to get the new iphone as i do love the interface but i really expected them to sort o... moreOmnia HD beats this phone in every single area, including screen, CPU, GPU and RAM.
"Must be joking the CPU and RAM is the same as the new Samsung i8910 OmniaHD. Which will be coming out roughly this month. Are they copying or what. The OmniaHD has been shouting its specs since beginning this year."
Yes, Apple is a copy-cat, but is that really some news? Have they ever created or done something innovative before? I mean, they also "copied" the touch-screen feature, accelerometer and everything else found in their phone. Oh right, besides the OS of course, but it sucks anyway... the lack of multi-tasking is a joke.
I wanted to get the new iphone as i do love the interface but i really expected them to sort out the basics this time which if you iPhone lovers just dropped your guard for one second you'd agree deep down that they have no excuse for these omissions such as:
NO FLASH (Not gonna bleet about the low megapixels as like some mentioned, no a ot of use if the ccd is the same size anyway!)
NO BLUETOOTH FILE TRANSFER
NO OLED SCREEN
These are all basic, not too much to ask for, features that have no genuine decent reason to not be on the phone.
My biggest gripe above all of these (maybe to some insignificant omissions but not to others) is the O2 sale price in the UK.
WHAT THE HELL!?
£300 plus a 24 month contract of £34.50 a month is bank breaking! And definitely not worth it over equivalents from the other manufacturers as you can save over £250 by getting the Omnia HD (ok before you say it, not as good a UI but close enough to justify keeping 250 big ones in your pocket!) which also has a higher spec in most respects.
I am disappointed as i wanted it but can't justify the excessive costs involved or the amateur functions being left out.
Save the crApple Zom, 12 Jun 2009better call this one iPhoney 3G S by crApple... same phone, lame upgrades but double the price... moreAlright, let me get this straight "Apple". In order for me to multitask, I have to connect to your stupid servers, multitask in the server, where I need to be connected to the internet at all times when multitsaking is needed. Now, you increased you battery life by 20%, yet I need to be connected to the internet to multitask which kills battery life like no tomorrow!!!
Can you please not call your iphone a "smartphone"!? And you have barelly introduced anything new on the market that anybody else does not have.
People that simply buy this phone are very much getting ripped off, I could nearly say it is a scam loool

Here we are again
whenever Apple realese an iphone
these guys just show up lol
i said it before and i`ll say it now
no one knows how good is the iphone only the one u used it ,, so if u didnt plz dont comment
i bought the first iphone(2G) everybody in my family was going like why did u it not worth it and bla bla bla ,,
a month later 4 of them bought the iphone WOW !! :P
tbh iphone 2 MP was great and now 3 MP will be better and im not a camera guy and now it does support video recording which is nice btw ,, and all other stuff u know
my point here : dont judge it before u use it
surely gonna buy this one :P
why engineer apple phone always forget to put secondary camera????? and its happen again...in apple 3g s..........
Read it carefully MegaPixel fans:
1- Apple didn't increase the resolution of the camera before increasing the processing speed the same rate (1.5 x), the important issue for apple is the responsiveness to the multi-touch concept (check the LG Arena's video as a witness)
2- Sony makes a 12MP phone the same time it makes 10.2MP DSLR alpha series camera (with 25 times bigger CCD area), is it something more than a selling point for the mobile branch????
3- What is the point to get a 3-4 Mbyte photo that makes you resize that before sharing it (ie in facebook)????
4- The idea of iphone makers is to be the Best in some aspects ... nothing less than the best:
a) Best Portable Media Player
b) Best Mobile web browser (make the acid test and compare it to the crappy IE8.0 on your PC!!!!)
c) Best GPS navigator
d) Best phone (compare the interface, phonebook....)
e) Best mailing and messaging device (off course from now on in this case with adding MMS)
f) Numerous applications affordable online (no App store is comparable to this)
The Design rate is 6.8 here... c'mon what kind of taste is that? Can you find anything prettier around? Valuable evergreen and off course sexy design that for sure will be a classic product someday. You can compare it side by side with anything else.
