Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010even in smartphone sale apple is no3 after nokia and blackberry worldwide! you pigOf course nokia would still have the most market share on smartphone sales. They have multiple smartphone released in 1 yr. Same with BB. Apple only has 1, yet it was able to land 3rd place. That is more impressive.
Watch the keynote ??! We saw the keynote and its full of iphone and apple product praising .. If u studied marketing ull know what's a marketing strategy means.. And specially Apple's marketing strategy which tries hardly to show u that its product is the best and sends u a hidden message that manipulates ur mind to buy it and think its the best by its looks. An example ?
If u saw the keynote then ull see Jobs each time saying "isn't that cool ?" "The most beautiful and precise thing" "the thinnest phone out there" (which there are thinner smartphones if u knw the smartphone market)..
Watch the keynote and see how he praises the iphone each time. Don't let Apple fool u people ur way smarter than that.. Not just getting deceived by good looks that have no benefit, as I said looks are for the eye to see not for the product to function.. And that tricks so many poor consumers into it ..
NOTE: This is my opinion and its a fact, and this is just an advice to all people who read this. I don't hate Apple and as I said before I've used lots of Apple's products, but this is my advice to u consumers. Best regards.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010Wow, you expect the maney sucker apple company to offer you with free decent stuff out of t... moreApple does not control their customers or anyone at all. Apple have reasons why they do business the way they do. If you don't support their beliefs, don't buy their products. It's as simple as that. Here's a point. Apple does not allow bt file transfer to discourage piracy. Let's be honest here. Bt file transfer are mainly used to copy media files. Apple is against that. Artists and app developers need to get compensated for their hard work. A lot of customers are opportunists. They like to freeload on apps and media files. If you are a freeloader, then Apple products are definitely not for you. There people like me who support and understand Apple's beliefs and values.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010And why do you mock the iphone's new display? Have you seen it in person already? People who... moreI don't think people are complaining about the display. It seems people (scientists) are complaining about Jobs use of the term "retina display" to discribe the iPhone 4 screen in his presentations to market the iPhone4. From my understanding, Jobs says that the "retina display" on the iPhone 4 is at such a high resolution that the average person cannot distinguish individual pixels under normal conditions. It seems the scientists' criticism is that the term "retina display" means a display that someone with perfect eyesight cannot distinguish individual pixels. (Please, forgive me if my terminology is not perfect here.) A true retina display must have a slightly higher resolution than the display on the iPhone 4. If you crunch the numbers, you realise that the iPhone 4's display resolution falls short of the definition of "retina display."
I think that Jobs is not using the term "retina display" correctly. He is trying to get across that the average person cannot distinguish individual pixels on the iPhone 4 under typical conditions, but there just isn't a term for this. "Retina display" is a catchy term and is close enough from a marketing stand point, I guess. He could have use a more accurate term like "near-retina display," but this term just doesn't sound as cool.

As for the camera. Techies should already know by now that megapixels is not everything. So I wouldn't say that just because the new iphone only has 5 that we could automatically say that the 8mp one would be better. I would wait for more reviews and comparisons.
As for the front camera. It might be new for the iphone, but so far according to those who have tried it at the keynote, it works smoothly. Something that other phones that brag of having it have not achieved after all these years.
User experience and OS stability matters so much more on a phone than other extra features. The iphone has proven that for 3 years now. And now their 4th.

A lot people saying that Iphone is bad a lot saying that Iphone is good... opinions, opinions
I wasn't an Iphone fanboy untill now. One reason for example, I didn't know that they put an accelerometer to a phone for the first time. Now all manufacturers have that in their phones like wow is that something or what... I bet it will be the same with the gyroscope.
The screen from the specs and pictures is stunning.
The HD video recording on Iphone looks good not just on the paper like on HTCs ... the only phone that probably beats it is Nokia N8, but it is't even officialy anounced.
The very Sense and Android plasticky HTCs couldn't reach Iphone quality nor the Sony Ericsson plasticky Xperia X10 and so on
There's only two bad things: about now Apple discovered videocall camera and the homescreen's still made of icons

If Java is important to you, and if you think n8 can satisfy your need for it, then go for it. But do we really need to know that here? Lol. Anyway, good luck to you and your n8 :)

If you go to a business school, they would educate you on how to create effective presentations. So I guess Apple has smart business men and women.
But yes, as consumers, very good presentations should not be enough. We should personally do our research and check out the device ourselves. Turns out that Apple have not only given impressive presentations, but have also produced an awesome device :) It already sold over 50million, and no amount of good presentation can get you that far if your product does not live up with its hype :)

For locals working their its normal but for tourists its expensive, everything there is expensive but they have the BEST products out there.

Have you seen it in person already? People who attended the keynote were all blown away by the clarity and quality of its new display, and you laugh at it and dismiss it as another hype? You're nuts. And then you bring up a samsung device that you like. I see insecurity there :)
i see 13313 people vote on the design, feartures, and performance. i want to know how can something be voted on if its not even out on the market for anyone to use and see how really is the iphone4? yeah you can kinda get an idea of it with the specs and all but still go to give it a chance. hahaha...still from a popularity stand point its at 95% with over a million hits already. all hated comments on a phone should be accompany with a recommended phone.
Rick(tm), 11 Jun 2010im not sure where they got the idea to call it a 4G Phone?!:)) because as per checking on the ... morethe reason it is called iphone 4g is because of the a4 processor. it is also called the iphone HD in which the name fits more because the only network that runs in 4g is sprint. att doesn't have the 4g network.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2010This phone's price tag sucks out of America. And for what? A 5MP camera, and a bluetooth that ... moreWhy are you complaining about the iphone4's price? You can't afford $199? Lol. The iphone's 5mp camera takes great photos. Even its 3.2mp camera took good photos. I don't know what your problem with its bt is because it works just fine w/ my headsets. And what about facetime that makes you upset? Have you tried it already? Lol. Maybe you forget that a lot of phones out there that has that 2nd camera for video calling are not really using it for video call because it does not work. At least now with iphone4, eventhough it's wifi only, it will work smoothly. Also, facetime just started. They will be working on getting it implemented to work smoothly on 3g.
The iphone is a very functional phone. It delivers.
I see so many people talking about how the phone is built
Or the way it looks as most of the people I see destroy the way
It looks by putting a cover on it killing look and make
Of the phone as the only thing that shows is the screen
making it look like all the other models.
Hmmm so basically after all the hype the best they could come up with is a phone that is just about on a par with the HTC Desire - a little better in some areas - not quite as good in others.
Of course HTC will be releasing morephones in the next 6 months whereas we will have to wait 2 years for the next iPhone after this one.
Apple is dead - long live Android

The iphone is for high end users and fashionable users. And please stop exaggerating. You said that the iphone can't download any content from the web. I am using my iphone right now, lol. How am I able to do this if it cannot download any content from the web. Also, if you check reports on data traffic. The iphone has the biggest data traffic percentage. Way higher than any other smartphone.
Geez, some people are losing their minds because of their jealousy, lol.
