Anonymous, 14 Jun 2009sorry, it isn't at all.. Its blackberry device that sold the most in terms of smartphone. And ... moreThe Blackberry outsold the iphone at one point because they were pretty much giving away their phones, lol. And Nokia would of course have the most sold phones because they have some of the cheapest phones in the world. But then, that is outside the smartphone category so I don't even know why you brought it up. The iphone being on the top 3 on sales, which would again change to #1 comes June 19, definitely secures a position as one of the top smartphones in the world, so it would be wrong for you to say that it is not here nor there. An example of a smartphone that is neither here or there would be the N96 or the Xperia, LOL. You do not consider the iphone a smartphone? LOL. Look up the definition of smartphone silly willy. The iphone fits in just fine. BTW, the iphone does multi task. You can surf the web and listen to music while updating apps, all at the same time. That is multi-tasking.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2009for your info, i switch because i can or could. i have the right to try anything i want and th... moreYou switched phones because you can? And you did just for that reason? That's kinda silly and impractical. As for me, I switched not just because I can, but because I know that the iphone would work better for my needs, and I tried it out, and evaluated the pros and cons before deciding to switch. I just don't jump into something just because I can, lol. The iphone received JD powers consumer and business satisfaction awards, so what you're saying that other people have problems with it is a small percentage of people. Which device can you name me received 100% consumer satisfaction? NONE. So please don't even bring that "some people have problems with the iphone" crap, ok. My N95 had 5mp camera, which I did use. But then I ended up using its camera as my secondary camera because it still couldn't match my Canon camera. So even if I gave my N95 up, I'm ok because I still have my Canon camera. As for web browsing with my N95, it was not fun at all. Web browsing on the iphone is just great. The N95 does not even come close. As for flash, I don't care. I've used the iphone for a year now w/out flash support on the web and I'm fine and still happy. The N95 didn't show all videos on the web either. I can view You Tube videos just fine on the iphone w/out flash support. I don't see any point of requiring flash on my iphone. CNN, ABC and BBC have iphone apps that would let you view their videos. Also, there are other apps and sites that supports the iphone's format for news and video. I could even view spankwire videos on my iphone.
why should i pay for expensive fone which is same as the old one. 2X faster? why only now? so whats new? application? what a...!!!
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2009first of all you said it has OLED screen and since i proved you wrong now you're trying to mak... morePrior to the official release of the iphone specs. There was strong speculations that it would come with AMOLED screen, that somehow got stuck in my head. I am not trying to make excuses, because it is true that I do not care whether its OLED, AMOLED, whatever. I am not a technical person. I don't care if it has 64K colors or 16 million, for I wouldn't even know the difference. The screen looks nice and the colors vibrant, that is all that matters in the end to MOST users. When did I say that the iphone is the first touch screen phone? The iphone never claimed to be a camera phone in the first place. It's a phone, ipod and internet browser in one.
Me, 14 Jun 2009the best thing with the omnia is that you don't need to use this creature: iTunes
and you don... moreSpeaking of movies on the Omnia, I hate the way customers who try to transfer a movie to the phone via Bluetooth and wonder why they get memory full errors when they have 8GB of onboard memory and an 8GB memory card.
It's probably because the default is to go to the 80MB of phone memory which obviously can't recieve a 200MB file!
This is when you need to enter the nightmare which is windows settings to change the default Bluetooth FTP server to mass storage, I mean WTF is that?
For an average phone user those sorts of things are hard to comprehend and frustrating to use.
The iPhone just has storage you don't have to even think about where it's going to go.

and you don't need to convert all your avi divx xvid files to something else
iphone 3G S ROCKS!!!!! i dont need big MP camera in my phone, or HD camcorder..cuz i prefer to use my digicam that obviously can record n capture better result than the biggest MP camera in a phone to date..plus squeezing all features into a phone is not a good idea causing less battery life, hang caused by insufficient RAM, and most importantly those features cant perform well compare to the stand alone device..Mobile phone is all about easy to use, fun, can text message, make calls thats all..but i appreciate apple with their iphone cause all of it's features run well.. ^^
afs_da1, 14 Jun 2009@nbuy, i think u didn't try iPhone 3g for a single time, i said it cuz apple's platform is mac... moremac os, win mo, symbian...i used them all. all the same to me as long as i can connect to the internet on my phone.
the iphone junkies are too hype about the new iphone. the new iphone is just a new software and little things here and there. nothing exciting!!!
@nbuy, i think u didn't try iPhone 3g for a single time, i said it cuz apple's platform is mac os where samsung omnia is windows or symbian. mac os is more reliable, faster and less hunger than any other os. so 256mb of ram and 600mhz cpu is quite okay
sony, 14 Jun 2009i think iphone is the best phone that existif it is the best phone as you said, then how come the camera part is still poor? so i wouldn't consider the best phone. without an advance camera included, the sony idou, samsung pixon, n97, 5800, and etc etc are still ahead of the iphone.
Where's the 1,2 Ghz? :p
Anyway, glad they've upgraded the hardware :)
If this iPhone is the real current-gen Smartphone, would they release next-gen iphone next year?
Honestly, the firmware 3.0 is a huge improvement, but nothing new ...
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2009hey dude.. i bet u dun really know how easy to use smart phs nowadays. The first thing I'd do to a Samsung Omnia is get rid of the touch wiz and put a decent 3D desktop on, have you seen the work being done to get Amdroid running on the Omnia, the ROM is almost ready for general use.
I sell phones and I can guarantee that 9 out of 10 people who are coming in to upgrade N95's, E65's, N82's and other smartphones aren't interested in new data plans because they never figured out how to set them up or how to use them.
Almost everyone who has an iPhone uses the web, email etc because it is so easy and satisfying.
They usually have Apps installed because that's easy too and they work with no messing around.
Backups are done every time they sync so when phones are replaced it's a simple matter to restore an old iPhone to a new one, Ive seen a lot of other smartphone users lose their contacts because they never sync to a computer.
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2009unfortunately CNN has some flash videos which the iphone browser can't read while other phone ... moreI just went to the CNN site with my iPhone and the lead video is the Iranian President going on about something, it opened fine on my iPhone.
See if you link to a raw h264 with a standard html link the iPhone just opens it up, without Adobe adding overhead, of course you can also get various sites that cater to adult entertainment on the iPhone as well and no doubt you already know that the high definition clips on YouTube are for the iPhone as well.
If you are a web developer you don't need to pay licence fees to Adobe to stream video to phones.
You are probably paid by Adobe to push sales for them.
I'm starting to respect the Iphone. Those Ifreaks may not be freaks after all. Should I pull out of this dive or should I continue the descent?
better phone but looks the same. this type of marketing will surely bring iphone junkies looking for something new.
kenddooo, 14 Jun 2009i didn't care when it was announced to have 3mp camera, faster 3g, compass, etc.
but new cp... more"but new cpu&ram is exactly what iphone needs!this upgrade sounds like its worth it now. hopefully less crashing on some apps."
