Everything apple do turns out to be a half lamed attempt. Take push notifications which is supposed to be some unified always accessible everywhere notification system. Why are apple so far behind everyone else with software technology. Take for example multitasking. Steve Jobs claims falsley again that the are doing Multitasking the best yet. "YEAH right" too bad realized he lied to everyone.
It's actually not native multitasking built-into the OS but never mind it's close, loads of apps still use stupid amounts of energy & will drain the power quicker. It's nothing more than a simple task switcher but not true multitask where apps are actually quitened down to a low state ready for dispatch from CPU cache.
Then Videochat where Jobs claims that he's doing videochat right & better than Videocalling. Where has Jobs & all his fans been living the past nearly 4-5 years. Yes that's right Videocalling has been around that long folks & back then you actually had the ability to videocall using 3G & WIFI cross platform cross network. So why can only limit Videochat to WIFI & to Apple platform only & eve limited Network operator only.
This is farsicle & apple were sleeping. They still haven't awoken yet from their dream yet. I wonder how long it will take. Then apple go & rename an ARM CPU that they didn't design. Then they go & tell you how you should handle a phone. WHat is this starting to sound like. You do not tell people to buy their products then tell them to **** off. You just don't treat customers like that.
Then after you've payed stupid money they will offer you a cheap bumper case for free as though people think it'd some amazing royalty gift or good will gesture. WHAT! Then they design a stainless steel chassis which is manufactuered in such as way that now they are having trouble coating the metal in the production process with some anti conductor bonding which won't bond. Bad move. Try a new type of metal with a bond that will stop the conducting interference attenuation issue.
Then apple claim that the screen resolution matters. In fact it doesn't because you can't even notice the differece with a 800x480 screen on a 3.7" or 4.0" over a phone with a smaller 3.5" screen & high res. SAMOLED still retains the power efficiency, along with colour, contrast which will surpass convetional LCD which is a proven scientific fact. Then apple literally use the same sensor as the Nokia N8 but limit it to 5Mp therefore not taking advantage of the great optics abilities.
SO also the camera doesn't have image stabalization. WHAT are apple thinking here. Images are okay until you size them up to a4 or a5 size, that's when you'see start to see the noise & over pocessing taking place. Wait if you find it difficult to get the image in focus, Jobs will just say you didn't hold it properly. HAHA where have I heard that before, oh yes ...that's right ...the dropped calls!
The iphone is inpractical because it doesn't do these simple native tasks properly. Apple "Native functionality done improperly" Videocalling, multitasking, camera without image stablization, all phnes cameras have it by default, a phone is to make calles, not drop them, gorilla glass that is Jobs claims unshatterable, false claim. Maybe apples need to focus on how to implement native tasks properly, maybe they need to implement them properly.
Functionality & limitation is why an Iphone is too boring for technical people who know what it misses & doesn't do right. These are things that were done properly long ago. Apple fans aren't technical & need to research. But they don't. take all the other OS's. They will support HTML 5 soon yet can still run flash videos, glash games, JAVA games, python scripted programs, MIDP programs. Like talk about application plaftform compatibility, this is what iphone lacks for free open program support.
All the apps are still limiting, this is the only boring place to buy your part, where with other phones you can go multiple stores & buy a choice of parts which are all actually third party, & most of them just work & won't break your phone, you know what I mean. Like upgrading a sports cars parts with some third party parts, it doesn't cause the car to break down. This is what it's like to buy a phone where you have freedom. Apples don't understand this word.

[deleted post]Apple is simply displaying other brands if the person isn't using adaptive handing techniques, like Apple's case where poor user interfacing to the product will produce the same negative user effect.
essentially Making their point that, if correct technique(s) are applied the Antenna issue doesn't therefore exist.
Negative reviewers therefore are just going against Apple's simple request for some "forward thinking techniques, perhaps trend setting?" as your using the advance device, not just apply poor ho hum knowledge and skill in the process of answering and call receiving.
Change is hard people, and Apple is making in roads, change with them, or be left behind.
Believe the lies if you like.
But keep the votes nice
