nick, 26 May 2011I like the iphone. it is a powerful piece of kit and has good hardware, but as a mobile phone,... moreThat's the strange thing, I disagree with you, because I prefer that Apple controls its products. It has resulted in a very unified product. For example, when it comes to gaming, developers have to take into account the weakest product, so that games can run on as many devices as possible. This has led to weaker game selection on Android, due to fragmentation. The SGS2 is immensely powerful, but without great games for example, what is the point of the power.
Like I said earlier, for someone who prefers to tinker, and maybe squeeze every ounce of performance out of a phone, iPhone may not be suitable. Then again, even without jailbreaking my iPhone, I do an amazing amount of things with it (including phone calls lol).
I know I go on about this, but I love for example, that I can play my electric guitar with multiple amps, using Amplitube. Gaming on iPhone is shocking in its quality, Dead Space, Infinity Blade.
I for one, prefer to use what serves me the best. At the moment, the iPhone gives me a great combination of reliability, a huge selection of quality games, and (in my case) phone calls.
*It is interesting to note that Google is starting to make moves that mimic a "closed system" as you call it. In my opinion, this open system/closed system is really overblown. Both actually have its pros and cons, and one should aim at something in between, not totally open, neither totally closed, but that's just my opinion.

Maybe you... moreI like the iphone. it is a powerful piece of kit and has good hardware, but as a mobile phone, it doesnt really perform. You just have to think that if Apple changed its policy on controlling it and opening up its potential, it could have been fantastic.
However great the iphone 5 might be, I cant see it being better than the SGS II. Will be interesting to see how Steve Jobs tries to slag it off
[deleted post]Not everyone is going to be happy with the phone. Perhaps it's not suitable for you. Maybe you should get an alternative like Android, or perhaps wait for the next iPhone which should be pretty awesome.
The 'controlling' comment indicates you would prefer the Android route, however this isn't without it's negative side either.
Make an evaluation and choose what serves you best.
i already bought white iphone last week...it's really nice phone and i love it very much....
it's very expensive phone in the market but i still like it..and other problem is battery lifetime..only 1 day for me...maybe it's normal...i don't know.
depends on people..everything i need, iphone can give me....no need to blame anyone..just enjoy technology...
Jonny, 26 May 2011The funny thing is people actually think this is the best phone in the world -It's NOT funny thing at all It is Actually THE BEST Phone in the World Now.
SEBASTIAN, 25 May 2011this mobile is avalaible as a modem ??Yes, the phone can act as a Personal Hotspot and share its 3G internet connection via wifi with other wifi enabled devices.
Not only is the product it self great, but the support we get for it puts apple far above any of its competitors..for example: there is apple stores right across almost every major shopping center in north america, where if your phone shows signs of any defect you bring it in and they repair it.
Now nokia, samsung, motorola...no one has this... this is why they hold the gold for products and services.
Jonny, 26 May 2011The funny thing is people actually think this is the best phone in the world -you know whats even funnier? That we as consumers have had many phones in the past and when we got a hand of a iphone we realized that this phone is the best phone in the world.
Yes we can say right now that the galaxy s2 seems to be greater specs, ok, but that doesnt stop the iphone from being 1 of the best phones in the world.
Remember buddy, iphone revolutionized the mobile market.

Anonymous, 25 May 2011Check in GSMarena spec, video calling is possible only via wifi, so probabaly you should use skype. if you jailbreak the iphone you could my video calls over 3g, with an app called MY3G from the CYDIA APP store.
