[deleted post]Seriously, we can actually have a discussion without resorting to such insults. Please refer to TL5m, who's comment I feel is a genuine concern. The key thing is he has voiced it in a reasonable manner, which in turn I reply to, with my opinion.
Because of his approach, I don't even care whether he is an iPhone lover or hater. It just becomes a civil discussion. It would be good if you took his example. We all would benefit from it.

Apple may be right in excluding the FM radio, or they may be wrong. If they made a miscalculation, supply and demand would take care of it, and people will not buy it, and move to a phone that fulfills their demand.
For me, that's why I am happy that competition is so fierce right now, no matter who wins, we the customers are the ultimate winner.
I prefer iPhone right now, as I don't listen to radio. Another customer who maybe listens once in a while, may buy an attachment such as the iFM for occassional radio listening. Yet another customer, who loves radio, may not buy iPhone at all, and get an Android/Symbian phone instead.

This is of course based on each companies research and what they feel fulfills their target market.
No matter what, there is no perfect phone. If we followed your logic, even all the Android phones would be identical, yet there are major differences even between phones from the same brand, ie Xperia vs Xperia Mini, Galaxy S vs Wave etc. Why is this so? Because they are targeting a certain segment of the market, and trying their best to fulfill the needs of that market.

iPhone 4 may not be for everybody. Another way to enjoy iOS4 now, is to keep your regular phone, and buy an iPod Touch, which is a compromise even I considered.
Only thing you would miss out is the 5MP camera, but you get FaceTime, full access to the App Store, with all the games and great apps. All this at half the price of an (unsubsidized) iPhone 4.
[deleted post]Believe it or not, some people do actually own the devices they talk about here, which is why we are able to give more detailed information, unlike those who only cut and paste opinions about phones they don't have.
You say something about iPhone which is factual and fair, and I would agree with you. You tell me for instance, antenna may be a problem in low signal areas under AT&T, I would say maybe, as I am not from there. If you say iPhone signal is a problem, period, then I would disagree, as from what I have read, and from my own personal experience, it works fine.
Fair way to approach things right? I like my PS3. I like that it is the platform of choice for me, who likes fighting games. Street Fighter 4, Tekken 6, and now the upcoming SF X Tekken and Tekken X SF. That doesn't mean PS3 is for everybody.
You tell me you prefer casual games on a Wii, I would say, personal choice, up to you. But if you say PS3 sucks, period, without any reason, surely I would respond another way too right?
FM Radio is available as an option for those who want it. It would be a waste to include it in 5 million iPhones, and only 1 million use it.
So the cost is reduced, and more efficient. Those who want radio, can easily buy a dongle such as iFM from Griffin and voila! FM Radio on iPhone.
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2010Even Android phones are rooted. What's the big deal?We r not here talkin about android/any other phones fault.............people buy mobiles becoz of hope bt wen its shattered they do som way 2 get them workin in their own way.............dont deviate from the topic............its a big deal->gettin things and cracking things..............
Will u get warranty for cracked phones???
[deleted post]He says that because too many comments here are about how iPhone has no signal. Frankly speaking the cat and mouse game is getting a bit lame. I'm guilty as well I suppose, but will try and focus on iPhone capabilities, or maybe cool apps after this.

Ratings for 3GS are higher than for iPhone 4. A fairy tale is that the iPhone haters destroy the reputation of 4. If is so why not also for 3GS?
Simply, iPhone 4 is far away from good product to be high graded more than 6.4. Will wait for 5G, otherwise will be bounded next 2y.
App Recommendation: Image Comics
Now you can read your favourite Image comics in addition to the Marvel and DC Comics in their respective apps. You can also read your other comics using Cloudreader, a nice free comic reader.
Apple is the Most Admired Company 2010 by Fortune, marking a hat trick as Apple won it in 2008 and 2009.
Funny thing is don't hold that way was proven to be fake email. Only the haters busy shouting it daily. I pity you guys, cos I actually doubt that you even have Android phones, all you have are spec sheets from websites you've bookmarked lol. Bet your phone doesn't even have 3G lol!
[deleted post]Sorry but am using iPhone 4, iPad, PS3, Sony NEX-5, Blackberry 9700 upgraded from 8900, just in case you were interested. My point is I am a fan of all these products which I chose carefully after comparing reviews. A good product is a good product, and I will defend my purchases based on my opinion, and facts.
I dot believe in blindly defending one company. But I will defend a good product from unbased lies.
