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.
I happen to like the iPhone, I happen to like the Nokia N97, I dislike the nonsense that either sux. They are different, none is perfect.
Da beavsta, 11 Jun 2009To all the knuckleheads heads complaining that the i-phone dosnt have a radio,you can access a... moreYes, you can use internet radio, which will jack up your data charges really nicely. There IS a point in FM radio, don't dismiss it as if it's not an important feature. Apple never throws in FM, not even on their ipods, unless you pay a chunk more. They're all about ripping off the consumer by forcing them to buy add-ons, which jack up the price of their already over-priced products.
I was comparing the iPhone 3G S and the N97,and I'm nothing going to lie, nor front, but hands down, the iPhone is better. Yeah, the N97 have a flash and a memory slot (the same memory card size a Sony PSP could hold), that could boost the 32G to 48G; big deal. 32 gigs in a pock is all one needs. But, anything you want or need, there's an app for it. Plus, with more RAM, and a faster CPU; the 3G S is like having a mini Mini Mac in your pocket. And it's not as pricy as the N97. My friend is one of those folks who love the N97; I told him: there could be a finalcut app for the iPhone since it have a video camera now; he automatically said, "nah."
What he or the other N97 fans don't understand is: whatever you need, "there's an app for it."
