First of all ... i salute mobile review for their sincere and objective reviews.
Second of all, to blame the attacks on Apple is pretty far fetched, not because it's not possible, but because if Apple wanted bad reviews to be gone they would have done that the next day the review was posted, not after a month after all mobile enthusiasts read the review.
Anyway, the iphone review posted on mobile review was the only objective review i found so far, telling us what the device really is, expensive nonsense.
GSMarena is biased too - and a direct COMPETITOR to Mobile-Review.com
GSMarena's reviews are just as biased towards Nokia and SE as most other sites out there. It's no surprise since Nokia and SE are the mainstream phones in Europe and the US...
I find it just as slandering of GSMARENA to post such an accusation against Apple with such a title:
"Reviewing the iPhone may be dangerous"
That's very wrong and I'm sure if you guys had a legal and compliance department this wouldn't have been allowed on the site without some thought.
After all, GSMarena and Mobile-Review.com are direct competitors:
maybe GSMarena is behind the attacks? Ooohhhhhh... now I did it.
I'm not sure about the other reviews on there but i prefer the honesty of that review to the one posted by gsmarena. I dont agree at all with the methods these DOSers are taking however.
Listen to all of you...
Biased? You are all biased! Listen to your comments, very VERY FEW of you have even touched an iPhone but when the first opportunity jumps up you BAG IT. The iPhone is what it is, and it's not bad at all.
HOWEVER, the attacks on mobile-review.com have nothing to do with APPLE or the iPhone.
As Mr. Murtazin said, it may have been blamed on Apple intentionally to cause exactly this:
Stupid people believe anything they WANT to hear. And you guys are just naive enough to buy all this and have another reason to hate Apple.
Sorry to be so rude, but that's just how it is.
I hope they're able to recover, my upgrade is due and I need to read some reviews! GSM Arena and MR are both awesome!
this is just a wreck! i hope MR will soon be back.. both gsmarena and mobile-review are my favorite sites to go and see..
phone brands? more like phone clans! its daunting to think of how committed some people are to these companies. im sure "mr. apple" or "ms. nokia", etc. are proud to know they have such loyal money spenders keeping there wallets fat.
apple - marketing geniuses! clearly. i mean great design leaders. i wouldnt even consider buying it though. multimedia phone? how! even there ipods suck! so inferior to other leading brands and ridiculously overprised. how could people not expect the same from the new phone.
incredible thought how people think thats cool or a proud statement to make. one thing to be vogue, another to be stupid. yet this kind of devotion to apple or ANY company is just warped!!!
did apple save xmas or something!?
Folks, don't take it all on Apple & the iPhone. I'm certain they have nothing to do with this. This is simply the work of some individuals whom, for whatever reason, have their hearts' desire to take MR down.
There are always two sides to every story that's being told. The reason behind the attacks might not be related to the iPhone at all. This could simply be just a personal matter, at best.
I have never used Apple's products.
All fingers pointed at apple, I'm sorry but from past knowing of that company that Apple has no morals when it comes to "defending" their products
After reading the article I think it is spot on. I myself have been wondering about the iPhone and this article point it out. I am not anti Apple or MS as I use both PC and Mac. I do agree however that Steve Job is one of the greatest saleman and his antics of "anti-MS" is getting annoying.
MY FAVOURITE SITE.
I hope that fix it soon..
I really want to know if the DoS does not erase the reviews..
I hope it doesn't eraase them..
Everyone as there own opinion on any mobile you buy an www.mobile-review.com always gave honest reviews about any mobile the like to review but for some set of idiots not liking the review the have given on the mobile they like but to break the website down is totally babyish an they need to grow up an stop acting like babies doing what they have done to mobile-review.com.i hope they solve the problem out as soon as they can, as i am missing the emails they used to send me an help me out reading the superb reviews an news they always give wish you all the best MOBILE REVIEW
Shame on Iphone !!!
Apple is the best for brainwashing people...
just like the article says, it is a solution for
fashion victims who don't know nothing in smartphones.
i'm sure it won't stand in the market for too long.
East or West, Nokia is the best!!!
No doubt it's a non-biased review, in my opinion though some ppl would've different opinion.
Atleast i know what i would be getting if i buy an iphone, things i would've known only after some usage of the iphone.
A big shame to the hackers, whatever their motive Mobile Review will come back stronger. I don't think Apple is involved in this but I suspect those Apple zealots who worship Steve Jobs and buy his lies. Now that a genuine reviewer has exposed the iPhone for what it is, whatelse to do but hit the reviewer's site.
Big big shame to Apple zealots, remain blind!
Thanks GSMArena for the info.
Mobile Review, Africa supports you...and you will rise again!
Ofcourse gsmarena people like nokia. He praised N95 as the worlds best phone in the review. He also praised N73,N91,E6i,E50....
Just mind your words.
when something is good, it is good... if a Web site writes good about SE (and the Web site is expert in reviewing mobile phones), then it is because (maybe) SE outstands other brands. Then you do not have the right to call it biased... this is not bias, even if you do not like it. Truth is sometimes bitter... so let's not accuse others of being biased. I think, even being biased cannot justify such a terrorist hacking campaign.
