Anonymous, 12 Oct 2010Yup agree totally with you. I think one should try out other phones, and make the best choice ... moreyes if you are happy having a phone without those features (i mentioned in last post) then its ok. its great.
by the way now a days most phones have email on th go. even less than 200$ dollar phones have this feature. some even also have push mail feature in that price.
Apple is famous for its ease of use for a very simple reason... they are very very good at interface design.
For normal people like you and me, we may not see the difference, as perhaps they are negligible, or merely cosmetic. For some however, it can be a dealbreaker.
Read how the iPhone is making things easier, for this blind person:
Lastly, be thankful for what we have. People go through life with much less, and with more challenges.

Your argument can also be applied to those spewing negative comments here about the iPhone, without ever having tried it out.
Remember, the iPhone 4 is already the best phone to some people, like myself, as it does all that I want it to, better than others. Likewise, the Galaxy S is the best phone to others for the same reason. Again, even a dumbphone would be the best phone to another user, who does not need email on the go, and does not game for example. In this case, BOTH iPhone 4 and Galaxy S would be a waste of money.
There is no one best phone, just a best phone, for you and me.
sorry to say, but you should try out yourself then only say what you are talking. I dont want to do arguements which mobile is better, apple, samsung, nokia are great companies but still anybody can do mistake or can lack at any place and can have extra edge that's what called competition. It is in our benefit, please stop taking side of any company talk fair and factly. Personally i like iphone graphics and speed. Still will not like waste that much money just for brand name and no features.
You think about it before purchasing iphone what you want? or what you are getting? if think it is fashinable or showing off thing having iphone then you should. But if you are looking at feature side i think at that price .....
It is so strange that iphone users never saw any other brand phone i think, at one community one iphone user was arguing that the video call (apple named it facetime) is first time launched on mobile phones (in iphone4). But fact is since many years other companies launhced mobile with front camera through network support you can video call but the iphone added (its new technology for them) it to use on wifi ONLY, not on network (strange). There are many apps (more in beta) for video calls through wifi for other OS. So how come its new.
I think apple should add following things, and iphone users should ask for b/c they are paying too much extra -
1. video calling through network (i seeing it in nokia since n70)
2. full functional bluetooth file transfer feature
3. FM receiver
4. FM transmitter
5. Flash support
6. True multitasking for all apps (dont believe check out reviews)
7. make it independent of itune
8. microSD card support
9. File transfer over USB (its new in mobile as launched in nokia first time on N8)
if they will add atleast above mentioned features i think iphone will become best phone untill then it is a showing off toy for me.
"If a company makes something good then other companies will definately try to make similar or better things and provide it in lower price."
1. Of course other companies will try and make something better, but they aren't always able to. There is a reason the word 'best' exists.
2. Companies do NOT want to provide goods at a lower price, they are forced to, due to competition.
Example: Following your logic, I can now assume that the Galaxy Tab is crappies than the iPad. Why? Because it's more expensive. If you disagree with this, then you must acknowledge that companies face limitations. At the end of the day, consumers will decide whether a product, at a given price (high or low) gives them value, that makes the purchase worthwhile.
Partha, 12 Oct 2010If you have read the Galaxy S vs iPhone 4 Collision course,you would probably know what I am t... moreYou should know that in the Galaxy S vs iPhone 4 collision course, what you just said will fall on deaf ears 99% of the time. Why? The buyers are from different groups. A person who would buy an iPhone would buy it not based on the reasons for buying an Android.
Android users tend to look at features, and prefer to tinker, customise etc. (I am just generalising). An iPhone buyer prefers to enjoy the features, and have things ready for them. Is there anything wrong in either case? Not really.
Easiest comparison, two car buyers. One wants a manual car, because he feels that you get better 'feel' for driving. The other buyer, wants an automatic, because it will be used for commuting, and its less hassle in traffic jam.
The manual car buyer would be annoyed by the other driver, saying "but its so much less hassle!" and the automatic buyer would be so annoyed by the "But you get so much more feel!" argument, thinking about the traffic jams lol.
Now, the more interesting battle to look out for will be the WP7 Android war. Same manufacturers, same group of customers, same price points. Android will tout more features, WP7 will tout superior gaming, polish etc.
Android users, prepare for your new annoyance for 2011... the WP7 fanboy!
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2010The Galaxy S is the closest competitor but it ain't no iPhone killer. Remember, the word kill ... moreIf you have read the Galaxy S vs iPhone 4 Collision course,you would probably know what I am talking about. As you see Galaxy S scored pretty well,winning over iPhone 4 by a margin. The selling point of iPhone 4 is its UI and the app store,however iPhone is popular among the Americans,but Samsung and Nokia has a grip over the entire globe. iPhone 4 offers 3D games with the gyro sensor,that's definitely a treat,but that might not be the whole concern of the buyer,not everybody plays games. App store of iPhone may have lots of apps but the number of free apps are minimal whereas in the Android market half of the apps are free. Moreover with iPhone you are probably under the control of a dictator(dependency on iTunes). This is where the price comes in. In my country iPhone 4(factory unlocked) 16GB-80k whereas Galaxy S(sim-free)-50k. So paying so much less for a phone and getting similar functions as iPhone 4 + freedom,that definately earns the name of iPhone killer. There is no wannabe in the field of technology. If a company makes something good then other companies will definately try to make similar or better things and provide it in lower price.
Great phone, had smartphones for years and this is good, excellent processor. struggled with the firmware update but managed to do this manually to OS4.1. Still struggling with bluetooth and using it as a modem. overall, a great phone, Apple is THE processing company by far in terms of speed, the faster the better. This phone is the M3 in smartphones.
nokia n8 will dominate the smartphone world
IPHONE 4 AND GALAXY S

3.5 inches boring screen . How about 3.9 inches how cool is that! Apple never does that cos they make less money
[deleted post]How come a ten inch iPad costs less than a seven inch Samsung Galaxy Tab?
Seen how much the Galaxy Tab accessories cost?
$100 for a stylus, what a joke.
Samsung is even more "overpriced" than Apple.

Anonymous, 11 Oct 2010I go agree with you tho, Galaxy S is way better than N8.
Nokia better do something, WP7 is... moreWinMo is here nine new phones and hundreds of millions of hyped up advertising ready to go.
Down will go Android, RIM and Nokia's N8.
All the iPhone wannabes.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2010I think Galaxy S is the iPhone killer,not N8.I go agree with you tho, Galaxy S is way better than N8.
Nokia better do something, WP7 is now coming as well, it's going to lose even more market share. Nokia has a grip in the dumbphone market which is massive, but losing in the smartphone war will damage it's reputation and mindshare.
