If a tech illiterate person can operate an iPhone, it means that they have succeeded in making it easy to use, wouldn't you agree?

Apple for example, did not invent the MP3 player, but the iPod made it accessible to many people, with some innovation along the way.
It is never only about new technology, or the latest or greatest when it comes to Apple. Rather, they bring together some new or existing technology, design, and user interface that creates a nice user experience.
This is obviously not for everyone. Some people like things to be laid out, for them to use in an easy manner, without having to always think about what's going on underneath. At the same time, there are those who like to tinker, and to be able to have full control of their devices.
Nothing wrong with either, just that different people, are different. Thus, differences in preferences when it comes to devices.
Engadget has posted a very comprehensive review of the antenna issue.
Actually, almost everything that's been said by everyone here, is mentioned in this article.
Key points which are important in my opinion:
1. Antenna issue is there, but real world tests indicate that performance is as good, if not better than most phones.
2. There have been no mass returns, meaning either too few are affected enough for it to be an issue, or it is not really an issue
My experience matches the writer's.
- Scratch-resistant surface
- Multi-touch input method
- Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate
- Three-axis gyro sensor
- Proximity sensor for auto turn-off
SOUND Alert types Vibration, MP3
Stay here and vote high and give the daily interest high people. Don't look at other phones, i phone is best,it has apps and 3g + wi-fi.
iphone is nice
[deleted post]Then return it and get a full refund :) Have you already made a genius bar appointment? Just like the rest of us, you have 30 days to return your iphone for a full refund if you are not happy with it :) So go ahead and return it :)
[deleted post]Ummm, at this point, can you please tell us exactly how many iphone4's have been sold and how many have been returned? Cause I haven't really read anywhere that millions of iphone4's have been returned.
Also, there's a little self contradiction with what you've said. You said that millions of iphone4's have been returned, and you also said that, "Inspite of you all being aware of the flaws, people still support ISteve". How can you say that if we all returned our iphone4's? And you know what? Regardless of why and how someone got their iphone, you should never judge anyone by what device they got for themselves. That is not nice.
As for Toyota. Even if it were true that they fell short on some technical standards or fail to comply on certain guidelines. Toyota drivers have been very happy and satisfied with their Toyota purchase. Proof that it's the user experience that really counts above all things when it comes to products.
Learn to mind your own business and respect others buddy. It is our choice. It is our money. It is us using the iphone and not you. It is us who will face the consequences of our purchase, not you. So why bother? Jealous, jealous, jealous, lol.
What the haters, Apple competitors, and even the media have to learn about Apple is. Apple sticks with their company beliefs and they don't care if it would mean lower market share. They have a walled business approach. And it is a balanced business platform to give consumers and providers a win-win situation. Apple protects both their business providers, and their customers. Those same rules and restrictions that you haters use to attack Apple are the same reasons why they are successful. They would rather keep a few customers who understand their beliefs and lose a lot who doesn't, than get more and more customers and fall under the same uncontrolled, unbalanced, unfair practices like everyone else. And that is why Apple is unafraid and is still doing well despite all these exaggerated attacks towards them. They know they provide excellent products and services, and they know that HONEST consumers who have experienced their products and services trust them and will keep on patronizing their products. So go ahead haters. Give it all you got. Though your efforts will be in vain :)
Why all the hype around this phone ? Face time ? 5mp camera big whoop. Most phones out now have 8mp + not to mention my expo which was released late 2009 has multitasking. This phone is for the tech illiterate.
[deleted post]See, your post is another example of a post that should be deleted, lol.
Iphones are designed and its parts are made in the US and assembled in China. It is not just made in China.
Foley, 14 Jul 2010That is not true. Apple build that way flawless and brilliant manufacturer image since beginni... moreWell, like I said, it's about time Apple delete those invalid, illegitimate posts. I mean look at this thread here in GSM Arena. Non iphone users complaining about iphone4 reception? Hahahaha. Isn't that a joke? Someone needs to show haters, that they will not always be tolerated.
Try to learn the simple rules of "cause and effect" my friend. If Apple produces crappy products, what would be the effect of that cause? If Apple does not tend their customers' complaints (the legitimate ones), what would be the effect of that cause? Naturally, no one will buy their products.
And oh FYI, my iphone4 had a yellow streak on it's screen when I got it. I called Apple Customer Service a week after about it, like what a real customer would do. I was advised to do a genius bar appointment right after the call, and I did. Went to the Apple Store the next day and my iphone4 was replaced with a new one with a flawless display. Talking about prompt service :)
xxxxxx , 14 Jul 2010nobody lie to their customers like steven jobs & Apple.Lie? What did Steve lie about? He may have been blunt with his answer, but he didn't lie about anything.
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2010Apple is not deleting valid customer complaints. If you are not a customer, you shouldn't be ... moreThat is not true. Apple build that way flawless and brilliant manufacturer image since beginning.
Near perfect, textbook, brainwashing. Apple delete not just non consumer remarks but also consumer complains for well known issues published world wide.
I personally posted question (when I was using 3GS) about deleting single call record and when this will be corrected (btw not corrected yet)
And you know what? Tread was deleted in record time.
If this is not legitimate question from registered user...than what is?
Apple is money stealing, brainwashing machine!
Every day I am more convinced that this machine expand even on treads like this.
You, Troy and P%nm either work in Apple either you are Apple partisans brilliantly described by Mossberg as people with: "doctrine of insufficient adulation"
[deleted post]nobody lie to their customers like steven jobs & Apple.
[deleted post]Ummmm, if ios4 does not work for you, an iphone3g user, you know that you can do a restore right? Gosh.

Apple is worth $225+ billion, while nokia is only worth $25+ billion. Apple could buy out nokia, lol. Stay in your world of denial.
Woods, 14 Jul 2010Ok all these comments and remarks are here, but I still dont know the answer I am looking for.... moreIf bt file transfer and adobe flash support is not a part of your regular activity, then I would say that the iphone would be a very good phone for you.
xxxxxx , 14 Jul 2010consumerReports.orgthanks!! i think i will stick to the 3gs
