C'mon - hands down the EVO blows iPhone 4 away. I can do so much more, play so much more, make video calls on 3 or 4G without using WiFi, download "free" music, have up to 8 megapixels on my camera, plug it in my HDTV too, multitask and talk surfing the web, broadcast live video... the list goes on... APPLE acts as if they've invented all this technology... and my Android is open source. I don't have to look at what Steve wants me to look at. I can change my log on, boot screen and have live wallpapers, pinch to zoom and use flash... they way I want it. I also have 4G here in TX... AT&T won't have that for another year... Android is so much better... In fact, I'm listening to Pandora Radio, wearing my Motorola Bluetooth Rokers, answering calls and writing this to you on my EVO!
Foley, 28 Jun 2010Dude, that's because this is ALLEGEDLY leak from some guy from Apple development team. Hear-s... moreWell there's also a rumor going around that you're lying and that you like to make up stories against Apple because you're a hater :)
Just two days away, we will preview the nokia intel meego ui for handheld
I would never get an iphone, they are unreliable and cheap but expencive, nokia are way better...........
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2010Best Touch for sure , but having a holding problem, gripping problem , handling problem.......... moreWhy don't you look on page 147 of the Nexus manual where it says not to cover the mouthpiece with you hand because that is where the antenna is and it can cause reception problems.
The reason the antenna is now being placed on the bottom of phones is to get them away from the side of your head away from your brain.
This is the usual rabid attack from people who last year were endlessly whining about exploding batteries and discoloured iPhones, which all turned out to be rubbish.
There are a lot of reviews where they fail to reproduce this issue, it seems to be limited to trolls on the Internet who have never even seen an iPhone 4.
Best Touch for sure , but having a holding problem, gripping problem , handling problem.......This is the first time in History of Mankind that someone need to OFFICIALY teach you to hold A mobile handphone......
...I cant stop LOL
[deleted post]i also say the iphone is the best touch screen smartphone.
but you missed that part too.
xxx , 28 Jun 2010I work for the federal government, you don't know how the government works, therefore don't go... moreI think you mean don't go THERE. Your inability to use their in proper context concerns me as a tax payer if you do work for the federal government as claimed.
Rest Assure , now all Apples enginner is having nightmare.........
Sure they will come with a solution of the antenna. What interesting is that , what do they have to say the next time when they are able to solve the antenna problem............ ARE THEY STILL GOING TO MAINTAIN TO THE IPHONE USER THE RIGHT WAY OF HOLDING A PHONE...............This is like a cartoo....ha ha ha
Apple is over. They can sell millions , but just see when the next new model phone from them will ever release again.........Maybe its time for them to join venture with China Made Brand - :"Ipone"
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2010Wow, you said your source is from an Apple insider, yet you said "alert RUMOR"? haha... moreDude, that's because this is ALLEGEDLY leak from some guy from Apple development team.
Hear-say? I am not 100% sure that is true.
I simply do NOT want to believe that big corp like Apple can and will play dirty in such way.
So... you've been warned before reading.
Even with China made phone you dont have the problem in holding it. You can hold in watever way and style you want......no need for them CEO to teach you how to hold , how to grip!!!............The best joke of the century...." LOL LOL

Alert! Rumor! Read at your own risk!

Insider info from Apple!!
Due to hardware deign flaws, Apple camp is upside-down 24/7.
Widely announced software update 4.0.1 which should solve "Death grip" is causing a new headache to design team, SAR over the max limit (1,6). They try to avoid FCC re certification which is already announced and required by FTC, CPSC, ACSH, AARP, ACCI and some independent advocacy and education organization such as CFA.
Apple will deny this with explanation that this is same product already approved.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2010Are you making your own press release now for Apple? It is a software issue after all and not... moreFJT6 everyone know by now that you are paid by apple for all of your commentaries on this website.
I did that same job ten years ago.
[deleted post]I work for the federal government, you don't know how the government works, therefore don't go their.
all of the federal government is run by a board of ceo from the private industry.
just google it & you will get all the answer.
Is it a good Phone, Stop talking about apple not being honest blah blah politics. Just tell me if its a good phone? any software issues?
This is what is missing iphone people. Take a look at this link. Then see if you change your minds into what you have bought yourselfs. Overprices, over useless, under specced software & hardware.
Yeah that's true. Heres just a few features still missing in the IOS4 software.
With the web it doesn't do text reflow, audio/video streaming, doesn't have flash or flash lite, doesn't have push idle so battery drains fast even on push, the alternative is fetch which drains the batter even faster. Doesn't have push email if your jailbroken even if you pay!. Doesn't process HTML still properly.
There is still no file managemnet features which include access in IOS4 to access your internal folders by any means, no app in the Istore allows it either!, you can't have mp3's as ringtones WT!, IOS4 doesn't include MIDP/JAVA support DivX, XviD, FLV native video. IOS4 can't handle ZIP, RAR, or SFX again no app in the Istore allows this.
IOS4 can't handle the following networking & connectivity features. Videocall via the network (3G UMTS, HSDPA...)A2DP routing stereo sound within videos & games over blutooth due to lack of "Native Multitasking support". Bluetooth AVRCP isn't fully industry standard so some headsets will changes tracks but others won't work at all. IOS4 doesn't support any bluetooth services when pairing with apples own Macbook!. There is no Blutooth file sharing support! LMAO HAHA
Ok. User interface is even worse, no themes support, no scalable OS, appls in the Ipad are simply stretched to fit, so will have black nadning bars & they will use more battery life while aspect ratio is screwed to high heaven to play back the file in hte proper format. There is no IOS4 desktop, entire UI is organized as a single "start" menu. IOS4 doesn't include parallex (finger/screen offset) adjusting - low precision especially on small objects.
The Iphone IOS4 SDK limitations are completely an example of closed platform proprietary indecenc such as no native multitasking, aps have to be specially coded to even handle fake multitasking, btw the first multitasking device was born in 1993. Other things the SDK limits are frankly extremely obsurd. No cross compiling, no open development, no proper application security, any non Istore app can damage your phone for good. No power optimization, the Iphone4 device overheats as admitted by apple.
Some misc features missing from IOS4. No fine details in pictures, introducing high noise reduction smears the finer details, with smudge, grainy looking images. No video stabilzation, no ISO control for the light sensitivity function for the camera lens in IOS4....
How many more can we thing of? hmmm. Ahh IOS4 can't handle handwriting, some other basic functionality is missing such as sending contacts vis Bluetooth, to do applications missing, save web pages, missing, calendar view week view is missing etc... it doesn't have any freeware, Itunes treats free applications like purchases + FairPlay DRM wrap. No user privacy neither online shopping, nor for visited web sites.
SO Yes the Iphone sadly misses a lot of features & functionalities from the IOS4 Operating system this is also because the Iphone 4 hardware technology can't cope with some software functionalities that other OS's require as native standard from the hardware.
Here' proof of how far iphone haters would go just to give the iphone4 bad publicity. A fake Steve Jobs twitter account that posted of a recall of all iphones. And worst, the media even used it in their news as if its legitimate. Here's the link.
