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.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2009Looks like Apple is following Motorola with their RAZR . Arrogant . Remember that Apple has made only 3 phones. Motorola made the same phone for 4-6 years :) and we now know what that lead to
Taking a look at the ratings, I'd say that the iphone is getting too old. Those poor features just don't justify the staggering price. Design for me is definitely dead. Disappointing.
Finn Jobs, 11 Jun 2009The chips inside are green (I work at Apple) because it insures better quality. haha, great
Green Chips inside.
MobileMe is not worth $ 99 and must be given free... it is disgusting to see apple trying to make money from us with regards to some really basic software
I'm curious - as of 12 June 2,599 votes have been cast to rate the new 3GS, yet it hasn't been released yet. Makes me wonder about the reliabilty of user opinion.
Rosaline, 11 Jun 2009Anyone can tell me does tis fone supports flash lite 3.0 & is the internet browser open up tru... morehave you been living in a cave for the last 2 years? No Flash!!! (yet) thats next years selling point
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2009no... the bluetooth can not transfer data... i am sorry to say thatYes you can send and receive data over bluetooth. Any one who can read knows that.
No QWERTY, no Flash, ship camera, no Radio FM (ok, have ineternet, that drains the batery, it's expensive or you can only use in wireless points), no multitasks yet... VOIP?! What is this?! VPN, why security data trafic? Oh no! Some one calls me when I was doing some task and it closed without save... shit need to do it again... Ok, realy its a good phone, come with multitouch and its fast, but the bluetooth still crappy and I agree when someone says that its like a RAZOR merchandising. Mabe in the next version. iPhone still far away to be my next phone. Nokia still ruling this game, I pay less and get mutch more. So Android is geting better fast. Wakeup apple lovers, iPhone isn't that mutch, only a blind status.

a lot of opinios from people who doesn´t have this phone!! this is ridiculous, c´mon be serious!!!
Rosaline, 11 Jun 2009Anyone can tell me does tis fone supports flash lite 3.0 & is the internet browser open up tru... moreNo-one wants flash. It is slow, a security risk and is mainly used for annoying advertising.
The web experience is the best you can have on a mobile phone. There are full screen browsers available in the App Store if you don't like the default one provided.
Can anyone tell whether this iphone supports office docs such as word excel pdf
I love how this phone's been rated so poorly before it's even been released.
This site should have disabled the voting until its release because it deserves way better than what it has.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2009The ratings here are worthless, there are a whole lot of people who just keep voting 1,1,1 mai... moreyeah..maybe gsm should have a panel of experts rating the different aspects as well. then can put it side by side like what cnet does for it's products. that would make it more fair. let the users decide who to trust.
Da beavsta, 11 Jun 2009To all the knuckleheads heads complaining that the i-phone dosnt have a radio,you can access a... moreexcept if there's no wireless connection around, internet radio is far far more expensive, according to your phone plan anyway. not to mention the music coming out is of lower quality too, not all stations broadcasts online as well, the time lags, etc.
Da beavsta, 11 Jun 2009To all the knuckleheads heads complaining that the i-phone dosnt have a radio,you can access a... moreBut even with that you're confirming what people are saying - the iPhone doesn't have a radio, you have to go online and use your own data to access the radio, when the vast majority of phones will have a free to use radio.
