Apple says that videocall can only be possible with iphone to iphone over wi-fi...It was as good as saying that there is NO videocall in Iphone4.

An iPhone contract here is less than 10% of a weeks pay, the phone is zero up front.

Though last time I used it I never regretted I had a ... moreSure, there are situations when video call comes in hand(and I'm really glad you had it available in those situations you mentioned). But 99% of the times you can get by with regular calls. Even the situations with somebody ill as you mentioned, regular calls works as well. And if not, just fetch a laptop and use skype if it's REALLY important.
Video call was greatly hyped here in Sweden around 2003(when 3G was new and the operators thought everybody would start using videocalls instead and use MMS instead SMS), but the truth is it's not very practical. First of all, you have to concentrate on looking at the screen when so many people are used to talk to people on the phone while doing other stuff. Then we have the fact that you have use the loudspeaker(since the phone is not close to your ear) and everybody hears your call. People got tired on video calls in about half a year here(and then it was free in the beginning) and went back to what they always had used before. I'm not even sure when the last time I saw somebody make a videocall now.
The camera quality is horrible, go check on apples website is just too noisy like there's radio active in the picture and it's low resolution compared to 8 and 12
The Display is IPS LCD which has better viewing angles than normal LCD but has that greyish blacks, washed colors and worse viewing angles compared to SAMOLED and screen size is still 3.5 inches.
this phones junk!

Of course Apple is bigger than Microsoft as a 'Technology Company' but seeing as how Microsoft is a 'Software Developer' It's a bit like saying Nestle is now a bigger Confectionary company than Ford ... duh! ...
The other day on engadget, in the poll for possible name choices of this iPhone, I picked "iPhone 4" and glad to see its come true. Just like before iPad when everyone was sure to call it iTablet, I went for iPad.
So much for those iPhone lovers who called me "self-claimed" kind of names every once in a while. I really wish engadget keeps a track for this sort of polls so I keep these as solid proofs but anyway, I am happy in me.

I was in Taiwan visiting my grandma, who was in the elderly center not exactly in good shape. Mom was in HK (not in good shape either) and I called mom via video call, so they were able to see each other....for the last time.
Don't tell me to get my mom to use webcam or something, and when my dad was around, I always v-called him as soon as I got off work...
That's the real way to "connecting people".
On another occasion, I was on a business trip trying to get something for my wife, and I v-called her so she could really pick the thing she really wanted.

Check out some videos on youtube for the Samsung Wave. The HD video recording is just amazing. I was shocked to see that it was that good with 5MP. Enjoy! :)
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2010The camera samples are horrible, go to apple website and see the photos, they have so much noise The purpose of the phone is not for shooting, definitely they will focus more on important features. If you want a high end camera buy an SLR.

... the video quality is dependent on the cpu, which is why Nokia's flagship N97 can't do it.
720p is only slightly more than VGA and is less than 1 megapixel.
You know nothing.

But when she switched to iphone 3G, I couldn't see her face as soon as after work anymore.
If what GSM Arena said is true, why video call only works thru Wi-Fi, or another iphone? So try to boost up sales of iphone?
Sorry, as though I don't have much against iphone (afterall, my wife has never been happier with any other phone so far), though personally I still prefer Motorola phones...especially with Android nowadays. (and yes, my wife loves to play games on my Milestone too!)

Apple pays for things apart from rip-off merchants like Nokia who release their patents to a standards body then try to force Apple to pay unfair amounts which is against the terms Nokia agreed to.
That's why Apple had to come up with their own methods based on their years of computer experience without using Nokia's IP.
When Steve jobs introduced the video - calling, it's as if cave men discovered fire. come on people, this phone has nothing new!!! it's useless, just a stupid phone with no memory card slot. and let me remind u guys that a 5 megapixel camera's 720p will be really bad quality. u need at least 8-12 mega pixels, to record 720p of decent quality.
