Not everybody buys a smart phone for gaming. HTML 5 is fully supported and for being able to watch videos and view rich graphic content natively without having to install plugins sounds far more appealing to me. Obviously HTML 5 is not all there yet but the approach is by far the more secure and is slowly but surely gaining momentum.
android sure is better than the apple OS, but i don't understand why some they hate the iphone...
for android users: you guys got better OS than iphone users so leave then alone
for iphone users: they have better system, and so what!! don't hate them back...
scottysattler, 10 Mar 2011no,you have gotten it wrong. The first few iphones i was impressed with,the 3rd was so-so but ... moreI see. In that case I apologise for misunderstanding your earlier comments.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2011Lol. You dont work in a mobile phone store.and why dont i? Just because i can run a business well,and i have time to do these things? Anyone could do what i have done,just have to be prepared to really work hard the first few years,then it all pays off.
Andy, 10 Mar 2011You make working in a mobile store sound like a long holiday. I work for Orange retail and it ... morehonestly mate i do work hard,but i train all my staff to know the entire ins and outs of a phone too..that helps me to have time to head to these conferences and do all my homework,because i know they can work without me there they all know thier stuff! It isnt always a holiday,but its a tech-heads dream job! My staff arent forgotten either,they go on thier own phone conferences and get new toys
ALonZo, 10 Mar 2011Just so funny to watch iPhone haters slate the best device on the planet. Advise to iPhone hat... morei owned an iphone. i preferred my Android phone. Iphones do make a great ipod though.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2011So, let me see if I understand.
You hate the iphone, you've never been impressed with the i... moreno,you have gotten it wrong. The first few iphones i was impressed with,the 3rd was so-so but now with the 4th gen i am bored.
And yes,i do run my own phone shop,have done for 7 years now. The reason why i own the phones but dislike them? To show customers the functionality of them. Any top smart phones that come out,i purchase,so i can show customers exactly what they are like,and their features. Do you know how easy it is to sell a product when you show a customer something,then give the phone to them to try? And i use them,even though i hate them,so i know them inside and out,so if a customer comes back needing help or advice i know exactly how to fix the problem. That,my friend,is good business.
Android outsells iphones in my store by about 4-1. Its not hard to see why
I don't about you guys but I find the upgrade perfect. Apple even allow a Blackberry to connect to it's hotspot. However, somehow, the web browsing speed remained the same like before.
very bad update for 3gs....i have a 3gs from nov 2009 and it worked well with all os updates...i paid a lot of money for applications...now, after I've updated the os my image is freezeing, i cannot write a message or everything using keybord because a key is entered twice, when i delete something it goes deleting everything etc....safary worked faster at first, but then is blockink, i hit once home button and i have another effect then standard...so on.....very, very sad...i just preordered an ipad2 but if i cannot resolve in the meanwhile all this issues, if apple don't fix this, I will cancel and I'll become an Apple enemy from a very good fan....very very sad....
Tried the "download and update" option couple of times but it didn't work.
"download only" option works but took some time to download the iOS4.3
The WiFi Hotspot works fine
WiFi Hotspot! WOW! Apple finaly catches up to the discontinued Windows Mobile! I had this on my old Touch HD a year ago. Faster browsing... but still no Adobe Flash... not now, not ever. Media sharing... again much later than the competition.
Who cares if your iPhone is with the most recent iOS when the functionality is still years behind the competition. Even if I had to wait for HTC to update my DHD (and I don't, I'm running on Gingerbread now - thank you XDA!) I still have the monster screen, the functionality which will be still ahead of iOS 5.0 and the freedom to install any non-market application I want.
android number one operating system
that's why we see the 5 biggest companies producing their phones using android system ( Samsung,LG,HTC,Sonyericson,Motorola and many others )
ios needs a lot of improvements
4.3 update not available in Middle East,
i tunes says tht ur phone is up to date
is this only for us or any plans for middle east
scottysattler, 10 Mar 2011Id never quit my day job. Working in a phone store is unreal. All the latest toys, all the vis... moreSo, let me see if I understand.
You hate the iphone, you've never been impressed with the iphone, yet you've bought all four of the iphones..?
Either you're a poor liar or extremely unintelligent. Why buy an iphone 3G if you hated the iphone, then why buy a 3GS if you didn't like the 3G & if by then you'd been filled with disappointment why bother to go on & buy the iphone 4??
If, as you state, you work in a phone shop you'd already know about these phones capabilities & shortcomings without having to buy them to find out..
I suspect you've never owned an iphone & the closest you've been to a phone store is when you went in & bought a substandard phone with updates that don't come out until after new phones are selling with a version of the OS that's 3 higher than on your 6 month old phone.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2011iPod = iPhone basically. Only real diff is call/sms function.
iPod+Android/Symbian phone =... moreSamsung Galaxy s + iPod (8GB) = 360+160 = 520GBP (Amazon prices)
iPhone 4 16GB = 510GBP (Apple store prices)
Of course there are ways to get both phones cheaper, but the general point here is... calculation FAIL! Ha
