Zeus, 28 Feb 2011I am sorry to say but Apple has set the stage for all this, we wouldn't be here with Jobs visi... morelol. Apple make pretty products, have a very effective marketing department, and a large base of insufferable hipsters who buy every overpriced and unnecessary product they make regardless of quality, on the false assumption that buying into a "cool" expensive brand must make them cool also. Contrary to your hilarious delusions, there is little to no actual innovation in anything they make. Mobile video calling, tablets, ultraportables etc were all done many years ago. E.g. the Nokia 6630 did video calling in *2004*, and by 2005 it was a *widespread mainstream feature* in Japan on phones like the NEC N901iC. But of course you didn't know that, because you blindly believe everything their marketing tells you. Nor is apple some kind of force for good in the world - despite their obscene profits, the charitable donations of Jobs / Apple are virtually nil compared to the Gates Foundation / MS, which is the result of a deliberate policy by Jobs (check his wikipedia article.)
Probably the funniest example of mac zealotry I have seen is when apple launched an AA battery charger, which was no different from any other except having an apple logo and thus costing literally twice as much. MacRumours consequently exploded in a sea of frothy fanboyism about how incredible and revolutionary a product it was, praising apple for allowing them to buy it, declaring apple had "done it again" and so forth.
Honestly, you people worry me with how easily controlled you are. I guess we'd better hope that the next radical politician doesn't have marketing as good as apple's.
People who say ios is better are just wrong, my arguement lies where if its so good why are so many people jailbreaking them to get android features or symbian feaures do your selves a favour and just buy an android phone which YOU can edit to how YOU like it not how mr steve jobs thinks it should be apple users are like sheep really once you have had 1 you just keep going back for more.(as you can see i dont like IOS)Bye and reply to me im up for an android vs ios battle...

Apple is using Samsung hardware to construct your precious iphone.
Thank you everyone for loving Samsung hardware.
"Death grip" seems to convey the wrong message... like it's some overkill grip or smth.
While it's just about a gentle touch in one "wrong" spot; "death brush" basically (though "death touch" has also decent ring to it, considering touchscreens and all)
I dont have any problem with my iphone 4. I have tried an android, symbian and bada phone and iOS is the best!
Tapio, 01 Mar 2011...and this brings us to another issue with the iphone:it's a luxury handset,which means that ... moreits not a question of being able to afford thats just one of the spurious arguments presented by iphone users, personally i could afford an iphone 4 i chose not to because i dont like the software and i dont like the product nor the attitude of many of the users, add in the fact apple doesnt provide end users with a blacklist service on their phones and adds up to a big no to iphone

AnonD-977, 28 Feb 2011you better check your N8 hasn't frozen up.
btw what does a phone sitting on a desktop have ... moreThe N8 has not frozen up once. It's the most stable Symbian yet. And it's as fast and responsive as the iphone 4.
And my point was pretty obvious. If I held both phones I never had any dropped signal. That was irrelevent.
Chrisp, 01 Mar 2011Something that is described as luxury usually means it is something superfluous to its purpose... moreBuying expensive means top quality,however apple is a cheap company and makes feature fones.Nothing smart about fruit fones at all they rely on a computer to work.
Tapio, 01 Mar 2011...and this brings us to another issue with the iphone:it's a luxury handset,which means that ... moreSomething that is described as luxury usually means it is something superfluous to its purpose - like a painting - and it is usually more exclusive to the people who can afford it. I hardly call something like an iPhone a luxury item. Those who choose not to buy it does not mean they can't afford it.
i personally think it makes more sense for apple to keep any hardware issues on the verizon iphone, the point is to give their rabid fans a pretty toy to satisfy the demand for a verizon device, while at the same time keeping something that apple can point to on the next iphone where they will "fix" it, but of course something else will be broken that they will address in the following generation, it makes no business sense for them to produce a perfect phone, it's the imperfections that bring back their loyal mob in buying each new version in the false hope of finally nabbing that elusive perfect phone
Why do people make a huge deal out of this, so like having one bar less is really the end of the world.
hai apple lovers, my suggestion apple Iphone need a bite like apple Logo's at Antenna not a square phone to make sure no wrong grip issue.
...and this brings us to another issue with the iphone:it's a luxury handset,which means that not too many people can afford it,but it has built up a lot of hype so many paople want one. Of all the people I have met using iphone, half are fed up with it and will not buy a new one. The other half like games on the iphone,so they might as well go for the ipod touch. Although many iphone users will not upgrade to the next gen device because of problems such as signal loss, the iphone is not that spread as a phone and there are lots of suckers out there saving up to buy their first ever iphone,not knowing what they're getting into... If you like the iphone, buy an ipad and a proper (nokia,lg,motorola etc.)phone.
apple is a big company with a best technology.but they not consider the issue and problem related to the technology they produce. dun just get the profit without being responsible for consumer. even the cost are high,they should not repeat the same problem. hopefully better product wil come next, with less price, to ensure more people affordable to buy it. thank you...just give an opinion.
well, u can still use ur iPhone as iPod,if u havent bought one already. Even in case of wi-fi signal strength,my old Nokia N79 shows 85% signal whereas my iPhone 3GS or iPod 2G cudnt detect any! Lols..
If i squeeze my iphone in its number case i have fulkl signal. SO there is no issue. This is fake anti iphone haters
Signal reception, the most basic and important thing on the phone that you cannot compromise and yet lots people out there paid blindly for that.
This just shows you that lots of iPhone owners out there were ignorant and willing to be toyed by Apple for their hard earn cash, and some of these people were the smartest and barking the loudest.
Given a chance, I would love to hear how Chris Rock bring out the "death grip" jokes in his own word. That guy is really funny.
Yeah the magic of an iPhone4, now you hear me...now you don't! It can an unwanted call just disappear! I just don't get it, you had the same stupid problem last yeah, but naw why spend the extra money in R&D to fix it. It just goes to show that they really don't care what kind of flaws are in the device, as long as it has that lower case "i" it'll sell millions. I'll stick to my Blackberry, HTC, or Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, well pretty much everyone else. The iPhone has an app for everything, to bad you can't talk to someone on it lol.
