Guys. Comment if you have a review or experience with the iphone 4 or a previous model. Nobody is interested in anyone slating the phone or apple in favour of whatever phone you choose to use. People quote figures here and its so ridiculous. So toyota sells more cars than bmw....Does that make them a better manufacturer. Does it mean that they make better cars? Grow up!!! Different products satisfy different markets. And it all boils down to personal taste and budget. I have always used Nokia's but am open minded enough to try the new iphone.
[deleted post]Are you talking sim free or subsidised prices coz over here in the UK the Iphone 4 is selling for £499 and £599 while the N8 is £449 all sim free. This was a deliberate move by Nokia as they are trying to claim back some of the users they've lost over the years of manufacturing cr**y phones. I'll bet you the E7 ain't gonna be that cheap.
Let's talk subsidised Last year I took out a 24 month contract "N97" £40 p.m with no deposit meaning at the end of my contract I will have paid £960. Now I ask you is the N97 worth that much? people who are technically minded will not buy the Iphone 4 that's true but unfortunately or fortunately "if you work for Apple" the majority are not. Iphone may not have the greatest spec around but it is an exciting phone and I think that's why people want it.
I bought Iphone 4 because:
a) Aplication store (Over 300.000 softwares,applications,games etc..)
b) Superb display.
c) Very good Photo and video.
d) Easy touch screen.
e) Long life battery.
But It could be perfect if it has:
a) Flash player (for web browsing).
b) Direct reading contacts from sim card.
c) Alarm when iphone off.
d) Bluetooth transfer of photo and music.
I am from India, i baught Nokia N8 on october 25th. I never had any issue until now with my n8 just awesome phone forget apple iphone 4 feature n8 is best. My battery life is so good. even with heavy usage i complete 2 days with 30% remaining. 1 do 45-1 hr calls per day and 30 mins of web and 1 hr of music. Once i got complete 3 days. Software is very impressive in my standards.For me the phone works for what i baught it for...calls..emails..web..networking...even games is so awesome that my laptop cannot give me the feel...
[deleted post]The demand for the phone warrants the price. This is not a new thing. Nokia were selling the rubbish N97 for £500 when it was released yet there was phones with a lot better spec selling for a lot less but you symbian fans never mourned about the fact that it was an over priced piece of of c**p.
The Iphone 4 flies off the shelves so it can't be that overpriced. If you can't afford it, it doesn't mean it overpriced.
every company has its day.apple its running in its prime phase since 2007.nokia was running in its prime time from 2000 to 2007.time will change and as a nokia fan day is not far when nokia will rule on the smartphone market not by profits but by customer satisfaction and no of handset they are selling becoz they have best technology (nokia was first to give mega pixel in the camera,giving wi-fi,first qwerty keyboard in 9100,first to launch colour screen mobile,mp3 and video player,gps in mobile,first truly multitasking os for mobile i.e. my favourite symbain platfrom,launch linux based os in n900,and last bit not the least best camera ever in nokia n8 i.e. 12 mp camera beating the sony ericsson who is famous for making best cameraphone and digital camera,), and best brains to make innovations.apple provide only the touch.it is not developed by apple as touch screen phones were available in japan and korea at that time.
so nokia fans do u agree with my opinon?even the other company fans know that it nokia which provide what customer wants.
anonymous, 02 Nov 2010it will available soon.my recommendation is not to buy iphone4 becoz it will cost u $1100.i ow... moreNot forgetting you stiil have to pay for the apps even though you pay hell of alot for the phone.
I can't even depend on this phone as a Alarm Clock. That's an App right??? The phone is not complete and now their so called built in Clock App is problematic that it cant even calculated GMT. Even my Sonyericsson K810 years ago can do it well and I leave it on auto and it never failed me.

To all apple haters, 01 Nov 2010Basically, scratch that, i'll put it in layman's terms for you guys out there. I can't even be... moreApple is smart to prevent P2P sharing and make lots of money but we consumers are stupid and it should be opened. If I want to send a recording of a lecture to my friend I cant do it thru bluetooth thats stupid.
I am a Mac user for more than 14 years and typing on my MacBook Pro 15" but all my Macs be it my iBook, to my iMac to my Mac Pro can all do bluetooth transfer on any file without a problem what so ever. Mac is the best but not the iPhone. It's restricted.
guys, does the vlc player can play any video format? if yes how can i put the movies onto my iphone for me to watch? pls help..
are we have to pay and buy app on apple store? Or is it free store for apple users?
[deleted post]Nokia invented the technologies and the rotten apple came to steal as always!!!
just stick with your ishit garbage.
alive and well android os ! apple i want to see them now!hahhahhahahaaahahaha
As a person that couldn't stand Apple but was wondering why so many
People had one I decided to not be so closed minded and give it a try.
I have only had the iPhone 4 for a week but have been very pleasantly surprised
I don't have the bugs and lags that I had when I was and android user and the battery one of my main concerns lasts longer. There was no good solid games in the android market place but I have to say with apple that is a thing of the past. Some of the graphics and game play has been amazing. The only complaint that I have is that you only can get apps from apple there is nowhere else to get them from. But that to me is a small complaint when the handset is so solid and the call reception is so crisp. There is nothing so far amongst all the android handsets that compare to the build of the iPhone 4 yep I have an android user that has been won over.
