Cade (Almon), 20 Mar 2009LOL! And now you're calling us fools. Very predictable. Though very poor arguments.I suppose you want to disable your graphics card then play Farcry 2, after all it has the same effect by shifting the rendering of video to the CPU via software rather than using dedicated harware.
Yes, it is very foolish which is why Adobe Flash-Lite is so awful on phone's.

gigi, 20 Mar 2009well said mate... to bad half of gsmarena are half brained...Hey thanks. I know. Why visit a site like this (which contains the latest in mobile phone technology) if you're just gonna linger on the Iphone area and be idle and hibernate until there's a new Iphone story or if there's a new touchphone only to criticize it even though it's way better than this slab of metal and plastic. Nice name by the way. I love it. GiGi.

So why do all these fools want to opt for a software solution which is a CPU and RAM hog when you can do it far more efficiently on the current hardware, not only that H.264 is an OPEN format you don't need Adobe to implement it.
It's like driving somewhere using the starter motor, without starting your engine, just chugging along.

Better photo's than your phone.
A computer almost as good as your netbook (iPhone).
And easily carry both in pockets.

Apple may be an expensive brand but hey at least they treat you right!
(and bro don't give me the "it has no flash plug-in" because you are old school brother.)The new OS 3.0 will change your iphone into a real smart phone with Tethering, bluetooth sharing , your stupid MMS ( which i find useless once you have a data plan) plus applications that nokia., samsung and SE would dream about.
ps im'm not a apple lover or iphone fanboy sonny... i was amazed by ur stupidity when it came to comparing phones only from the hardware point of view....and tell me... would your PC have a graphical interface without an OS (Windows/OSX)???
When you find the answer to my last question your neuron will start to spin and maybe light ur little light bulb above your head.

Because the iPhone gives the best user experience of ANY phone.

It's down to the type of touchscreen. It has multi touch but the bluetooth and stuff are not present. The camera is standard and no extra features. You mean to say you're willing to pay for all that for this multi touch than have all those divx playback and 5-8 mp cameras? Be reasonable. Other companies can incorporate it in their touchscreens. It's not even patented or anything so how can you say it's a trademark of Iphone. It's the 2nd most expensive type of touchscreen. So what? There are other elektrostatic touch screens like the LG Prada. (http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/Article-Touchscreen-technologies-in-phones-article-a_3067.html) So why bother. Ish*T! I mean IsHEEp.
Most say there are better phones than the iPhone. Maybe it's true, when you compare other touch phones to the iPhone's camera, the bluetooth, etc. But maybe what we forget is that the iPhone is the only touch phone that has multi-touch features! I think that's the main feature of the iPhone. It was an innovative introduction back when the first iPhone was shipped and it still should be seen like that! And no other phone can match that!!
With that said, I'm from Malta. Here you can get the iPhone for €515/€600 (without a contract, but still locked under the carrier). This would translate to about $820 dollars for the 16Gb one. It's terrible, I wonder how people can buy such a thing. Not to mention that another company is offering the Xperia at €850 (about $1,100)!!
I really like the iPhone, but I wouldn't go over the €400 mark. But then again, I wouldn't really want a jailbroken iPhone - not to mention they are still too expensive from ebay. Guess I will have to wait for the Sony Ericsson C903 to ship, but still I can't buy it from here, they would probably sell at €400 minimum here (given the 5MP camera). Seems like ebay is the only option for ones like me! It always is for everything! Whether it being an ipod, a new phone, a cybershot camera...
LOL! My $170 phone has more mp than this and honestly, why buy this? You can buy one of those lower end netbooks (200-350US$) and you'll have a better web experience and you can install much better applications than those Iphone apps be your O.S. linux or windows or mac. I even went to a cyber fair yesterday and there were notebooks there that only cost 250-270 U.S.$ which were for people who just need a computer like a student who is studying or for elderly people who just want to keep in touch. The 15 inch LCD which comes with it is way bigger than this. The computer had specs of 1 ghz,512 mb ram,6400 nvidia geforce and stuff. I know it's slow but it's for those who want a computer to work with. Not extreme gaming. Which has more processing power? A computer or an Iphone? How many gigahertz or ram does it have? Anyways, you can buy let's say an N95 which has 5 mp and flash (and good enough quality as I had one (got stolen) ) for about the same price. Plus, you can just buy an Omnia HD or a Storm or an LG or an XPeria. People shouldn't overhype ugly phones like this just like how they overhype the Chris brown Rihanna incident.
the phone is comment free, but it isn't unlocked!!! meaning if you want to use it you still have to have use att.. and also only available to current att customers

[deleted post]hmmm interesting... so how many TVs do you see with plastic screens? because im pretty sure everything but rear project has glass screen and a plastic case, just like.. oh wait an iphone, amazing. Also it is proven and a fact that the iphones music play back capabilities far surpass anything else on the market, phone or mp3 player, just like the ipod itself, amazing how apple bring that quality to all their products.

Anonymous, 20 Mar 2009i keep wondering why people are interested to buy this overhyped phone.Then there's also the fact that people who buy the iPhone weigh up the pros and cons and decide that the all important features the sheep keep bleating about, aren't so important after all.
