where are these die hard fans to vote for this great phone? there aren't many because they are busy installing the external antena on their phone to make a phone calls, what a joke, apple totally lost it, and there are going to be thousands of return and unhappy customers.Stick with your 3gs or go and get Galaxy s or WAVE.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2010Also, as a reverse question: The rating for the Samsung Galaxy S is way higher than the iPhone... moreseems you are not in touch with news and views, galaxy sold over million of handset so far, which is far far more than what apple sold when it introduce its first version, remember these are the first version and they selling so well, everything apple can do, galaxy does even better and its cheaper and more reliable phone, beside the antena works meaning you can use the basic function and that is making a phone call.
There are 3 applications must have for unjailbraiked iPhones:
1- DiskAid: it is desktop application ot transfer by USB files ( videos, photos, applications data) between PC and iPhone.
2- FileApp: it is a file manager that opens and save email attachments and safari downloads.
3 Oplyer: it opens and save all most all type of music and videos attachments and safari downloads.
If you have these 3 applicatios you can enjoy opening almost all attachments and download files through safari. And then transfer saved attachments and downloads by USB to your PC using DiskAid.
I am really enjoying these features.
did anyone mention that Galaxy S doesn't have a flash for it's camera :))). start talking about that
Alui, 21 Jul 2010Why? Because Samsung is better? You do know that the processor from the iPhone 3GS is Samsung?Who is the number one Android phone maker? Just wondering. Aren't they also competing against each other? I feel that Samsung is good, but wonder why Google chose HTC over them to make the Nexus One.

Instead of apple pointing fingers at other manufacturers, they should take back all the phones and insert an internal antenna. It will e a waste continuing to make more and more batches of faulty hardware. They should make new batches with the same look but redo the antennas in them.

That's the point I'm making, isn't it nice that we have variety? And we can choose? I would not want iPhone to be the only choice available, and vice versa. This competition is making a lot of mobile phone customers happy at the end of the day.

I can do all those things on my Galaxy S, just i'm not interested in the light saber app from Android market:). I might use the app to find baby patterns (eat, sleep, cry, crap) in the future.
Until then I enjoy a full web experience visiting sites with flash, I can see avi, divx, MPEG4 movies (Avatar divX in native format of 9:16), I can text much better with Swipe, I use Shazam, Google maps navigation, make pictures and videos. I'm happy with my Galaxy S too. Oh wait I forgot that I have also TV out.
[deleted post]Point remains though right? If voting was what counts, higher rated phone should have sold more. Since that was what the original post was yapping about.
the nokia N8 will be the best phone on the market when comes out looks beta! beta features! beta camera! and most definetly wownt have to buy a case or worry about it DROPPING CALLS!

It doesn't even have an antenna problem! So where are the millions and millions of buyers rushing to buy it so that it can outsell the iPhone 4?

Some people value ease of use, some people go for the brand. Kinda like buying a Mercedes sometimes for some folk. Do you agree with this? Maybe yes maybe not, but who cares, free choice baby.
Some people will not use a smartphone to the fullest of its ability either. Even those who buy Android phones.
Even with my 'limited' iPhone, I check my email, SMS, Whatsapp, sync my database using Bento, take casual photos, upload them to Facebook, send them through email, identify songs using Shazam, listen to my funny voice using I am T-Pain, read what's on my google reader, using Reeder, read comics using Marvel & DC comic reader, I am a Street Fighter by day, and a Guitar Hero by night, drive around and crash on Need For Speed: Shift, pretend my iPhone is a lightsaber using the Lightsaber app, follow Formula 1 races using the F1 Timing App, stitch panoramic landscapes together using Auto Stitch, wake up refreshed and check my sleep patterns using Sleep Cycle, find out the best settings for my DSLR using DSLR Toolkit, and keep track of my finances using PocketMoney.
Whatever it is, I am very happy with my iPhone, and it fulfills my daily needs which may be totally different from the next phone user. That's why when you may say the Galaxy S or this phone or that phone is better than the iPhone on paper, I would even maybe agree with you, but would it serve my needs?
just a simple question, if this phone is really that great, where are these millions and millions of fan voting? the rating is going down the drain, its real people voting and the result is very poor ? have you asked yourself why? bacause people simply don't want a phone with serious antena issue, those who even got it they are returning it back, please just wait for few month and then judge how bad this phone will perform, and sells!
iphone4 has absoloutly nothing new to offer compare to 3gs and compatetors, I love gsm arena by far the best site in the world regarding the smart phone news and views, they will do well, and I am glad they did not remove the voting system for iphone, this shows how professional they are and they reflect people voice good or bad. well done arena.
Chris, 21 Jul 2010You say the first phone to have facetime... my Sony Ericson did video calls without a WiFi. A... moreSeriously, I think there's been more than enough media coverage on this. People are aware of this, and have decided either way. Those who want it, have the option to return it. Some people don't really make that many calls anyway, so don't really care. And most times, people are not reporting problems anyway.
Its funny how the other companies are very defensive now, and if you notice, even the media is shutting up regarding the antenna issue ever since the press conference. It was fun when the spotlight was only on Apple, maybe now that the spotlight is on the whole industry, the other companies are getting a bit nervous?
