i was a nokia user and now an iphone user. i have to admit the iphone has the best touchscreen, web browsing...it outperforms than nokia in every aspects. good job apple!
Apple, two thumbs all
I brought an Iphone 3gs 16gb for only S$38, with a two year contract plan and trade in my old phone, so it is a no brainer. My Telco didn't over me any as good subsidy if I choose a nokia or HTC. So, I am sure I got a pretty damn good deal for my 3gs
What is good about iphone over other smart phones? well, I tell ya...
1. Best browsing experience, it's fast, can zoom in/out screen easily.
2. Super fast wi-fi connectivity. Checking of emails is great. Web browsing is very fast.
3. Applications easy to install - over the air and in short time. Many applications available, either free or $0.99.
4. Great looking screen and
5. Sleek form factor
6. Best touch screen experience, multi-touch is best in class
7. Good voice dialing. I use it with my bluetooth car speaker all the time. It can even syn all my contacts into the speaker phone inorder to read the name of the caller when the phone rings. Very neat.
8. Reasonable good battery life.
9. I used blackberry bold and Nokia E71 before, so I am so used to thumbing texts using physical keyboards. Switching to iphone's touchscreen keyboard was no problem. Iphone touchscreen keyboard is best in class.
10. I love watching youtube from iphone now. So easy.
My 10 reasons why you ought to consider an Iphone.
Oh, I more, best thing about my iphone.. IT DOESN'T HANG on me :)

iPhone is such a great phone , deserves every penny. Sure lacks the Camera and Bluetooth but has many more in return. Go go Apple !
Btw , same people laughing @iPhone now sells their Htc/Samsung/Lg to get one.
Iphone is a phone that needs to have an app from the App $tore, to do something simple. A youtube app to watch youtube vids? I lol'd.
If only it wasn't gimped too much, then we'll let you brag all day.
Apple strongly believes in creating the best USER EXPERIENCE it can.
Everything they make works together in harmony to achieve this.
Apple took complicated smartphone features out of the hands of geeks and gave them to ordinary people in a usable way.
Nokia sold 4.4 million N-series phones in the same quarter vs 7.4 million iPhones, the iPhone continuously tops consumer satisfaction surveys.
Average iPhone sale price = $600, average Nokia sale price = $90.
If Apple supplies had of kept up with demand they would have sold even more.
Now I'll leave this thread to the Nokia sheep who just don't get it and can't stand that not everyone wants to be in the Nokia flock.
[deleted post]Don't be silly. If people spend money on something expensive, then to them it is worth it and it does not make them dumb. Your mentality though is pretty dumb :) What better product are you talking about? Couldn't find one sorry. Who are you to tell us which device would work better for us? Gosh, some people here just do not make any sense
Their iPhone sucks a bit(still like its such easiness) but their marketing and portfolio blast your brains off. Everyone wants an bite of that juicy apple.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2009only 15 percent (or less) of the people who bought the latest iphone bought it for its powess.... moreOther non iphone users upgrade from one model to another as well because of their loyalty. Why would you give it a bad connotation with the iphone? What's your problem?
Both the 1st and 2nd gen iphones are the reason why you see all of these touchscreen phones coming out left and right from other phone manufacturers. And you have the nerve to say that those were ripp offs? Lol.
Hey, you don't decide or tell other people which device works for them better. The iphone selling a lot only means that it works well to a lot of people. Maybe not for you, but we are not you, so get over yourself mister.
i just like to say something... for companies like Apple, LG & even Samsung
it's not hard to guess that these companies doing so good in the past year due to a reason.
these companies start producing heavy mobiles just recently.
1-Apple they produce so far only 3 mobiles using their own OS so most of the expenses are on creating and developing applications... the design for the iPhone still the same nothing new... dont get me wrong i like it and they doing hell of good job although most of the applications they release are available as basic and stranded programs in most mobiles.
2-LG in the past 2 years all they release are small cheap mobiles and it was good and safe road to take as they just entered the mobile business, so in the past few years LG was trying to let the consumers to know them better and gain the market trust and in late 2008 & 2009 they start producing some heavy mobiles and in 2010 will be the year to prove if LG can steal a big share from the market.
3-Samsung same as LG they start with small mobiles but the develop faster than LG and one of the main reason made the consumers trust them is the fast release of their mobiles, they didn't take long time to release the mobiles they announce the produce and they release it after 1 month to 2 month top... and that's good also the Variously of their mobiles it's also gave the consumers the free option to choose
i'm not a genius but i believe that 2010 will the prove of the market and who own the biggest share
one thing left why companies like NOKIA & Sony Ericsson take long time to release mobile after they announce the reason because they already pass the point that LG & Samsung are in at the moment, in 2005,2006 & 2007 NOKIA & Sony were releasing mobiles like crazy and i'm sure that LG & Samsung will do the same thing next year
that's my opinion nothing else
arron, 21 Oct 2009congrats for ripping ppl off.. gotta give it to them great marketing!!The iphone is a great device, period. People who bought the iphone knew what they were getting and paid for it because for us it's worth it. So how can that be a rip off?
iphone user, 21 Oct 2009This profit comes from all the Apple product. so iphone dont think that it post good profit co... moreIf you read the article carefully, it did say that no other smartphone in its category did better. The iphone sold 7.4 units in the last quarter. Which htc, nokia, samsung, or other smartphone in it's price range, sold more than 7.4 million units in the last quarter only?
Apple succeeded in brainwashing tards from the US.
Next stop. World.
only 15 percent (or less) of the people who bought the latest iphone bought it for its powess.. the rest where just royal Apple fans who got ripped off 3 times by buying each iphone
the iphone 3GS is actually one hell of a gadget with amazing games for breaking time on trains and benches thanks to upgrades in its processing and graphics but its still pretty expensive.
but the first two iphones are total rip-offs.
The only iphone worth buying is the 3GS and thanks only if you don own a ipod touch or any of the older iphones
as much as this profit scale shows that apple is doing great in the market...it also shows that there are still bunch of dumb people out there who fall for anything! Apple: "hey guys, now it's faster!"...dumb people: "OMG! yay! i'll get it!"...Apple: "hey guys, you like video rocording?" dumb people: "OMG! iphone can record now!"...Apple (soon):"hey guys, we have a flash now!"...dumb people: "OMG! i can take naked pictures of myself at night now!" -_-
