Does iphone 3GS include Radio functionality ? now I'm using iphone 2G, can I upgrade firmware to iphone 3.0 OS ? ;-) . I just wonder about that. By the way,Iphone should built-in Bluetooth technology that can be used to share data with other phone modellike Nokia, Sony Erricsion ..etc. Because now I'm using third party software called "IBluetooth" to connect to another phone. it's bad one, I think Iphone should improve it with this point. Thanks :p
Auvik, 08 Jun 2009I work in a mobile phone operator company. Gsmarena is like our homepage. All the time we chec... moreYes, thats true. For us GSM Arena is like Bible for mobile phones. We follow this site religiously.
it's a good effort on Apple's part but it still falls short, way short...there are still a lot of features missing that're already common features with other high-end phones like this...still I am sure that with the lower price tag, it will, as usual, get a lot of people to line up when it finally comes out...I guess one would have to be a true-blue Apple fanboy to get really excited about this new version...but it's not enough reason for me to get an upgrade from the last iPhone....not quite yet...nice try anyway, Apple...
how is it two times faster when its now running at 600mhz. its had a 600mhz processor from the start it was just underclocked to 400mhz and then brought up to 412mhz. and the processor is a samsung one by the way or atelast has been. good phone yes but how can they say its the fastest most powerful when half of it is still behind in the specs list.
All the losers come out to play...
Apple have extended the functionality of the iPhone and still all the thickheads don't get it...
...software and hardware integrated to work flawlessly like no other phones before or since.
We'll have to wait for a teardown after the 19th to find out what's under the hood.
Once again GSM Arena's voting system shows it's worthlessness which is why we've blocked the site across 120 stores in Australia.
I suggest the iPhone 3G S to be available in Cambodia, I also request Apple to add Khmer Unicode support to iPhone 3.0, I would like to see the title of the songs in Khmer, I would like the browse Khmer Unicode website for news.....
There are around 10 network operator in Cambodia.
I love iPhone, currently I own an iPhone 3G 8GB.
There is no reason that this phone could not have been iphone 1..... except for 32gb and maybe 7.2mbps..... Apple blows.

Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009Hi all, most all smart phones have the same tools (features). However, the iphone is still p... moreyep.. it is super classy and u know its expensive.. so all the bad reviews?they are just jealous! then dont buy if u hate it..hahaha
Iphone will still make alot of money. I would say about 80 percent or maybe a little more in the USA dont know about the good phones in europe. If they go in a ATT store, Iphone will be the best.
Samantha, 09 Jun 2009wowo,a lot iphone haters on gsmarena,have ppl actually used iphone before start hating?we cant... morehi samantha! this is samantha jones from u know me.. well, ur ryt. compared to other phones, iphone is at the top. even a 2mp cam the quality is superb. and it is super stylish.
.lolz, same old style with only 2x faster!? .Apple surely can do better than that!
anyone knows what CPU the 3GS is using?? is it better than the Samsung S5L8900 620 MHz processor used on 3G?
Samantha, 09 Jun 2009wowo,a lot iphone haters on gsmarena,have ppl actually used iphone before start hating?we cant... moresorry Samantha.. If you look at N97 forum and see how many iboy bashing & mocking there whereas they can do it in their own children forum, you would've understood. now look at apple new specs.. i don't have to laugh. it's a harvest time for what iboy have said, all returning back to their mouth.
basically this is a marketing strategy.
u design a phone. with the full capabilities at 1st.
BUT when releasing the 1st version, u take out 70% of it's functions. as time goes. u release version 2, 3,4 and so on. as the new versions releases, u add some of the originally designed functions to it.
so in a way. if u sell a phone at 100% of it's function right at 1st, u earn only once from a particular customer. but as u slowly "upgrade", pple will still buy the phone, and thus u earn 2 or 3 times from the same customer.
every phone do have it's flaws. but ya. certain functions that are easily available on other phones are not found on the Iphone. but on the other hand, Iphone do one thing that others do not have. the apple store. thats well another place to rip off their customers.
i would say the apple corp marketing staffs are really good at making money.
but for the phone so far, the exact specs are not out. so.. we can't really say for sure, that the old problems that Iphone 3G has will still be on this new 3GS.
p.s: im a iphone owner as well. and im not proud of it. went back to my N95(8GB) after about a mth with the iphone.
With this kind of upgrade, probably Apple might lose out. I know Apple can do better than that but it ...... just let most of it's fans done.
Sal, 09 Jun 2009To Samantha: "a lot iphone haters on gsmarena,have ppl actually used iphone before start ha... moreiPhone is an easy to use phone. I had been using the iPhone 2G and #g for the past 2 years. But I seriously don't find what's the point of producing a new phone which looks exactly the same like the old one, just a couple of minor upgrades. Probably they should have waited till next year where they can really produce a phone which is better than the 3G S.
Wooooow! 3.15mp cam. wow, video recording. wow, no flash! WAT A TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHRU! Lol.
Losers will still queue up to buy dis fone...
people for peeps sake DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT BUT THE IPHONE, need proof why not to buy look at the last two models i live in europe and half the people i know from holland to spain ,germany and back ar sorry they ever waisted money on this thing. people let me remind you no FLASH on the cam (a little 2002 for me)the bluethooth did not work most of the time, the browser was no fun, wifi connection often poor, speakers die first.
scratch resisten glass (only nokia can deliver with saphire glass). in Holland there were such bad reviews about this phone that only t-mobile has them, and within the first month 40% of all buyers came back with serious software and hardware problems.
please peeps im telling you the only thing that apple has going for us is scams with high prices for low quality not only with the iphone but also with the ipod (sony and CowonD2 rule).
not to mention the new specs on this phone are old specs compare to all the other phones out there in my book its either Nokia or BlackBerry that set the standarts (dont get me wrong i love lg sony ext.
folow some friendly advise if you want to do something good with your money give it to charity NOT TO APPLE THIEFS!!!
