It's getting pseudo-multitasking not even true multitasking, a feature that Symbian had a decade ago. video calling, wallpaper, digital zoom, flash... iphone is way behind.
I think that Apple is just playing us. All Iphones are similar, it's 1cm deep. it's bigger than the regular iphone, and what for? a better camera. I mean come on. Look at sony ericssons, they have 12MP cams! LG introduced a transparent phone, the GD900, which is a LOT better than all iphones. HTC has killer phones with WM6.5 or Android and they are a lot better than the silly iphone OS. We do love Apple for introducing the accelerometer and finger swipe technologies. Besides that, we need something new, totally new in design. New technologies, a transparent phone, whatever! Your R&D team is just taking a big break after their hard work for the release of the Iphone 3 years ago.
Thumb down for Apple Iphone 4 and Ipad (Big ipod touch/iphone with a higher price tag), Thumbs up for LG & HTC
[deleted post]maybe you dont have money,your just using poor nokia
what they can do they do well, apple is not feature packed like many smartphones, but its simple to use and fast at wot it does, thats why people like them, I have a nexus and am very happy, for me its the better phone, but thats my opinion, we all need to stop this silly hatred for what is only a phone
okay so youre telling people not to buy the iphone. im sorry you sound like a poor little boy that likes nokia. it's not up to you if people buy iphone 4
Hi guys, i think this iphone 4 is just same as 3gs. The only difference is of camera, which is 5mp n front vga camera for video calling. N else body is changed, nothing else. But before buying it plz have a look on other smart fones like storm2, n8, n900 and hd2. This fones have more features than iphone and even one of them have rom for better performance. So before wasting ur money think about it.
Why is everyone banging on how big a screen must be and that some other phones are better cause they have more megapixel in the camera. Simple matter of the fact is that it's how you use it and what the quality of the components is. But much more important how the OS and other software is. You know why the iPhone has been selling 9 million times each quarter last year?? Because it works!
It's fast, smooth, user friendly! And very easy to understand. If you compare it to symbian it's 100 years ahead of what Nokia will be able to bring to the consumer.
And who cares about the inch of the screen? I would like a phone that still fits in my pockets and not one I need a bag for to carry it around.
And for your information the N8 from Nokia has less speed than the (old) iPhone 3GS so saying people should wait for that is totally retarded haha.
What I'm trying to say is don't judge phones by their specifications alone. That's only 1 small part of the total performance. Try them out and THEN! form your conclusion.
just me, 07 Jun 2010is it a multi task phone now or not???Get happy mate its definately multi tasking and you can make folders for the appllications as well.
"Um Nokia N96/N97 design..........oh and already outdated. pathetic attempt. possibly the most underwhelming product coming to market. when people ask for this where I work, I will actually have to laugh in their face."
So the N96 and N97 are made of stainless steel and toughened glass are they?
I'm laughing at YOU thinking that underpowered, cheap plastic rubbish is anything like this.
If I came in your shop I'd leave due to your incompetence.
i hate how this site is full of nokia fanboys. i don't particularly like the iphone, i prefer the nexus one. they need to realise though is that this phone is going to sell better than any other phone that's being bitched about in these comments.
Andrew Bailey, 08 Jun 2010The Nokia N8 is another poor Nokia product with shocking software and an aray of problems. Nok... moreThe multitasking of the n900 nokia is like a dream of every iphone fan. I think even if apple tried for 10 years to make it like that it wouldnt even come close. I am not saying the n900 is the best phone but considering the multitasking of it I think its on its own level way above the iphone. The problem with the n97 mini is the software, but the n8 nokia wont have such problems as the previous models. Compared to the nokia n8 wich is an masterpiece, the apple is nothing more but a mere toy to play with. But atleast the nokia n97 mini can videocall trough umts and wlan using skype. Wich actually means i can video call from an n97 mini to even a laptop/pc wich runs skype. While apple only supports it trough the new iphone 4 and even then you can only do it trough wlan.
the nokia n8 is better because of the camera-bluetooth 3.0-hdmi connector with the dolby digital quality-the strong processor-free navigation from door to door-the videocalling is better(also with umts)-radio with fm transmitter-an powerfull document viewer- 16gb internal but you can expand that with a 32gb microsd-the 3g network is slightly better-the battery has a longer standby time and lasts longer with the multimedia and the list goes on.
If you see what edges the nokia n8 from the apple iphone 4 then the conclusion is that the nokia n8 is a serious smarthphone wich is better in many aspects. The nokia n8 wont do any good to apple fans because you people just couldnt handle the phone, what would apple fans do with it ?
its better the apple fans stick to the iphone and jailbreak it so they can download some funny games, thats what mobile(apple) phones are used for nowadays.
yes a lot of features have been already on the market, it's not about what you can do with this device but how you do it! dont understand people saying it doenst have a good shape? I think shape is the first noticable thing about iphone, it's got the best apperance on the market. especially how can you campare this with HTC, their phones are just ugly! I know many HTC users agreed with me on this one. I used HTC and Sony Erickson Xperia X10 recently but overall I think iphone is much better handset, not perfect but much better.
I think N8 is better
because Iphone is more expensive with lower performance
and the ability of multimedia and multitasking is better in symbian phones
For Some reason Apple never quotes the actual RAM on the device. If it is 256MB like 3GS, the HTC models beat the iphone hands-down any day.
I just cant run more than 4-5 apps.
Steve..make way for jailbreaks..need more RAM..most of the cydia apps are more fun to use than the official AppStore ones.
the apple 4 is not bad, but i must say its not cutting edge tech. what they are left with is the class and specific market target. as to functionality any Android operated phone 2.0 and above is better in addition to the up coming Nokia N8 which will surely trounce the Apple 4hands down.
Apple Lover, 08 Jun 2010Guys, common' stop it. The majority of you haven't seen this live, I don't talk about using it... morethey do everthing right? what the phone part of the iphone is far from right, poor loudspeaker performance poor battery life limited bluetooth and dropped calls as just a phone with out the smart bit its crap!
