Form looks like Nokia N78 ;D
So Symbian is freezing or crashing. Every OS has BUGS & issues. That doesn't make the N8 bad. When the issues are solved, & hopefully they always are sicne Nokia is most reliable at supporting firm updates. Then Symbian will be fine. It is a first release anyway. I wouldn't be surprised if IOS had certain issues in it's very first release.
Their are many areas around the world that still only get upto 2G coverage, & 3G coverage is getting better but it isn't going to be good enough for constant Online radio I don't think in poor signal areas or areas with no WIFI. Their are areas where you can only use FM transmitter so it's still very useful due to lack of Internet services.
Also the point about using Videocalling with WIFI might be great if WIFI was available to everyone & everywhere you travel. Is this a certainty. NO! SO it's a bit poor when it's only Iphone to Iphone & WIFI only. Do they expect WIFI & Internet services everywhere you go with an Iphone-4, that isn't gonig to work in many places.
On the side of Videocalling through Vioce over IP service such as Skype or many others. You have the great opportunity to use apps which allow you to use 3G or WIFI & videocall anyone on anyphone you want which has VGA front facing camera & a native videocalling API built right into the OS.
SO Symbian doesn't need Apps to make it work. It just allows the use of native videocalling through your network provide whether you are using WIFI or mostly 3G as like I said. WIFI isn't available everywhere.
The kind of backup like contingency & welcom alternative conveniences really do outnumber the Iphone experience with convenience with the Symbian OS. With Iphone you are limited & it's not always going to work for everyone. Its good is IOS trying to give the best experience but at the same time lacks convenience & support I think.
So my points are ethical, neutral to the point of view of many people who go out & buy a phone which they know will have them covered as best as possible for every need they need to have accessible to them. It's all about support & convenience just just a nice looking model which is dumb. Or juding the book cover before you know what's inside it!

Do you buy things to satisfy other people's opinion of you? Pretty sad if so. For me, I buy what I like. Sometimes it may be coincidence the same choice as many, sometimes it is not.
[deleted post]if you dont like iphone4 why r u posting such comments here.everyone will not expect all features.it depends on each individual.guys if u don like it just stay away from this forum.its really irritating to see so many comments like this.
Why do Apple claims these things they can't back up? Like they said that the gorillaglass in iPhone 4 is impossible to brake. Also they claimed that the first iPhone is bulletproof when it came out. Was it? No you can shoot right through it with a normal pistol. Why do they claim these things?
the iphone 4 is a beautiful phone but my greatest regret is that you are not able to transfer files i.e pictures, music etc with Bluetooth. why make it available if you cannot use it.
Someone please tell Steve Jobs, this is one of the biggest flaws of this once considered beautiful phone.

I could care less whether you love it, or hate it, doesn't affect me in the slightest. I did find your 'We are the grownups so we do the office works" in your corny made up dialogue hilarious tho.
That's the only part which I actually ever commented about. Which I then found funny that you were mentioning PSP and gaming. Cos in the dialogue, Speaker 1 was saying we don't play NFS as if gaming was soooooo beneath him.
Anyway, we shouldn't be arguing. We are the grownups, we should be doing the office works.

For eg lack of REAL MULTITASKING,bluetooth file sharing n micro sims etc etc etc.
Two of the hottest games to look out for. Can't wait!
Infinity Blade (Unreal Engine 3)
Mutant Bash TV (Rage Engine)
Great time for gaming on iOS :)

Anyway, no one is forcing you to play games on the iPhone 4. As long as it does what one wants, what's the problem?
"We are the grownups, we do the office works"
Video calling only through wifi is a drawback.
[deleted post]If you buy it from India, chances are it will be around 40k without warranty and jailbroken...This might sound stupid but the best thing to do is to get it from Canada apple store because they sell it factory unlocked with warranty that is valid anywhere in the world..
Can anyone please tell me if it is possible to tranfer files from Iphone 4 to other phones using Bluetooth (third party app,which can be found on Google search engine). I dont know how successfull is this app on the iphone. Other than that I think Iphone 4 is a damn good phone. Nokia N8 dosent even have portrait keyboard like Iphone + the Processor is 680 MHz + lack of usefull apps like apple (Who ever designed Nokia N8 is a moron)
JoE, 10 Nov 2010I totally disagree when you say playing games. This is a Phopne to make calls, Intyernet check... more3 BEST things I LOVE about Iphone 4...Retina screen....MAPS....(so smooth) N8 doesn't touch this and the GLORIFIED IPOD!
IF the N8 comes near this....I think that MANY N8 lovers wouldn't be bashing on the Iphone forum!!! What do you think eh!!!
Engineer Man, 10 Nov 2010Hi. My report was supposed to be a meaningful representation of what both phones can & Can... moreEngineer man, no offence...yes it was lenghty however you haven't mentioned or failed to mention that the N8 keeps freezing and resetting....and that MOST users find this problem!!!! How do you explain that to Sonia IF she decides to buy THAT!!! Eh....

Apple have a habit of tightly controlling their products so i doubt that.what could be possible in next version would be video calling over 3g or 4g to any other fone by default instead of requiring any app to do so.
