Unless you can show me a comparison of the prior model right next to the new one showing identical quality, then I will not believe you. What's wrong w/ VGA. As long as it looks clear and crisp on your phone and is intended to be saved and viewed on your iphone, it would be wonderful. Unless again, you can show me a video taken by the new iphone showing poor quality. It's camera is upgraded to 3mp, but it's software has also been upgraded to produce better results comparable to DSLR cameras. Again, it's the quality of results that count, not the numbers."
facepalm, wow man you're so brainwashed and deluded by the apple cult. AMOLED display ? santa christ the new iphone still has LCD, VGA ? wow there's a D1 and HD nowadays better than VGA. 3mp to produce better than DSLR cameras because of the software ? LOL LOL LOL LOL i don't even want to waste my time as i know you are being sarcastic
as long as apple releases its iPhone through carriers, its going to be out of reach for most common public!

It's the pros who think so on their reviews. And I don't think they're ignorant in that aspect. And who said anything about the megapixels being the major key to good image results? The new iphone only has 3mp, but per reviews, it renders wonderful image results.
You're just another blind Nokia fan who just assumes things. You haven't even gotten hold of the iphone 3GS and you're already making claims that your N93 takes better videos, lol. The iphone comes with editing features for video as well. Didn't you see the demo? Gosh, these Nokia fans are annoying dumb.
And all you closeminded Nokia Symbian lovers are blinded by spec numbers ignoring the more important thing on a device like USER EXPERIENCE and PERFORMANCE. You guys have been deceived over and over again, and you guys are never smart enough to even realize it =)

Have you even tried the video capabilities of iphone 3GS? Read the reviews. PROFESSIONALS are even impressed and said that it produces better results than its rivals.

There's a huge difference, especially in the possibilities.
But indirectly you're right that the camera doesn't matter that much, the photographer does.

Well the other was referring to his HTC phone pre iphone release. The HTC capacitive touch Android device came out after iphone release, so there. HTC felt the pressure from iphone.
Again, Touch HD came out after the iphone. Again, due to the pressure that the iphone caused other phone manufacturers.
Well it's your choice whether you want to jailbreak your iphone or not to enable it to record videos. You don't have to anymore with the iphone 3GS.
Again, as a consumer, I do not care which browser a device has. All I care about is the performance. So quit the lame excuses for HTC that they do not provide their own browser. That is not Apple's fault.
As for the MMS, watch the MMS demo for the iphone 3gs and tell if your HTC phone does the same.
Again, quite making lame excuses for HTC. I mean who does not want a big internal memory. Although 16gb is really more than enough for me. As for losing data. Iphone users synchs their iphones to their Macs or PCs so I don't think that is an issue.
And how was I a hypocrite? I have a Canon camera that takes great pics and videos if I need to. Which is not very often. But hey, if that is what you do all day, then it makes sense for you to have gotten the omnia.
The iphone never claimed to be the ideal camera smartphone. The iphone is a phone, ipod and web browser in one. And that is my kind of device. I find web browsing more fun and useful than taking pics or vids. So that is why the iphone works best for me. We all have different priorities on what our ideal phone is. Overall, and practicality wise, the iphone is the best one.
i know this looks like a great phone but dont forget if ur buying it for the applications they are not just for the iphone they are all avilible for free on the HTC Magic, from vodafone, especially as u can now get it for FREE from £25 a month thts 300 mins and unlimited texts this far out wayts the price plan from O2 which is 600 mins 500 text for £35 per month and u still got to buy the phone for £90!!
dont follow the crowd stanfd out and visit a vodafone store near u asap to take advantage!!!

Who is the manufacturer and what is the model number?
It looks very much like glass, modern lens technology means that glass lenses can be made in any shape you want and churned out in factories, the difference between Carl Zeiss and any other manufacturer of 3mm cameraphone lenses is zero, the Carl Zeiss name is marketing pure and simple.
If you were getting a custom made lens for a telescope then maybe Carl Zeiss could make some sort of difference but the cost of doing so would be more than any of the phones in question.

You don't need to jailbreak iphone for 3gs and who care's about 3g that';s old news.
Internal memory is a good thing in the iphone's case. Your data is more secure. Plus if the iphone has to load something from an external device then there are long waiting times. And then to contest your point about losing your phone and then all your data, itunes backs up everything on the phone. So if you lose it, make an insurance claim, sync with itunes, hey presto, my iphone's back. And this is such an easy process that even my nan could do it.
The omnia hd takes bad pictures and good videos. But nevertheless is a slug of a horrible phone and should never be compared to the iphone, mainly because the omnia is a glorified CAMERAPHONE.
And i'm a winmo user and definatley not proud of it.People don't like the iphone because they are seathing with envy and think it's a challenge to their phone so they have to come on these forums and defend themselves.
iphone 3GS is great with the touch focus function..like DSLR...^^ i dunno why people use DSLR instead of digital camera with awesome lens and sensor like lumix or leica pocket point n shoot..theres no big differences..i challenged my friend who use DSLR Nikon with my point n shoot Lumix..seriously..they all look great..
you can check in apple website to know if your iphone is officially unlocked or software unlocked if you want you can try by your self by updating in itunes once it lock while updating means your phone software unlock but if will not lock means officially unlocked. what is the model no. of your iphone?
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2009The new iphone does more than just voice dialing. It has voice commands all across other apps... moreComparing the iPhone's video quality to the N93 shows your ignorance. Have you even tried the N93?
Heck, the N93 has better video quality than even the LG KU990!! And you compare it to the iPhone???? LOLWUT?
good things can last long. But not so long in this is highly competitive world. How moto failed after their successful V3 with V3i, V6,8,9 etc..? How nokia failed after N95 with crap N96? So now is apple turn.
During iph reign days, U really can't choose alternative. N96 is crapped, omnia and xpeira use WinMo and screens sucks. But Now , instead of buying iph 3GS, u have plenty of options. 480x800 16M capacitive screens are available. WinMo,symbian,android,Palm,and even blackberry OS are there to choose. So, i ph 3GS won't be so exciting.
Only ignorant and irrational fanbois would claim that the image quality of the HypePhone is "comparabale to a DSLR". Bwahaha. Silliest thing I've heard. You have not even used a DSLR to say that. Even the oldest DSLR would beat the newest camphone, or even a Point&shoot digicam. You know why you ignorant fools? It's the physical size of the image sensor that matters, not the megapixels. So all those wanting more megapixels don't relize that the physical size of the celcam's snsor hasn't changed, and that's why higher MP cams always have crappier image quality, higher noise, lower dynamic range, less accurate colors, etc. I bet you've all haven't seen how tiny those celcam image sensors are compared to ones on point&shoots, much less those on a DSLR, *even with the same megapixel*.
And for that anonymous fanboi claiming the HypePhone takes better videos than the N93, you're pathetic. The N93 has an actual Carl Zeiss lens composed of real glass elements and it has 3x optical zoom, not that pathetic digital software zoom from fixed-focal length cameras with plastic lens elements like the HypePhone.
So yes, the N93 from 2006 takes waaaay better videos than your HypePhone, and it comes with free, yes, free video editing software right out of the box, unlike your HypePhone where you have to pay for everything, even basic functionality taken for granted in other smartphones, just like what gsmarena.com has stated.
All you technically-illiterate fanbois are the reason why Apple keeps charging highway-robbery prices for old & fancy technology. You just don't know any better.
doesnt the iphone 3g and 3gs have a samsung cpu in it? so then samsung wouldnt be copying
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2009You're obviously biased. If you like to call iphone fans as freaks, what would you call Nokia... moreSersiouly? When you were writing did it ever occured to you that HTC makes phone not O/S? Or you just didn't care or even bother doing your homework. To answer some of your 'concerns',
1) HTC uses both resistive and capacitive screens. The former with WM devices and the latter with Android.
2) The largest screen from HTC is 3.8" with a 480x800 resolution. Touch HD.
3) HTC phones don't need 'jail break' to record videos.
4) Don't understand 'web browser faster than Iphone'. If by that you actually mean is the web browser better, depending on your insight, if you're referring to HTC, then HTC doesn't make browsers but they're phones are loaded with Opera Browser (not Opera Mini) but Opera Browser for the WM devices, which are really good. If you mean the O/S brower, then yes, Safari is better than IE.
5) As for the 'MMS available but does it render as good' comment, I can't say I understand. All phones will view MMS the same because MMS is size capped. E.g. you can't send a 1MB MMS. So most pictures, attachemnts will end up compressed before sending. Usually anyway. In other words, there's really no difference unless you're comparing the size of the screen you're viewing the MMS.
6) As a WM user, I don't like internal memory. I mean I don't mind having 32GB, but always provide a memory card slot. Its a security thing. Backup and what not. Because if a phone with Internal memory ONLY goes to the bin, you loose everything inside. If a phone with memory card goes to the bin, you loose the phone but still have the data.
7) Last but not least, when you say 'go away', and use the word 'antagonist' then ends with "Go and play with your omnia hd, although I don't know what it does other than take good videos and pictures" it makes you look like a hypocrite.
That said, the biggest problem with people who don't like the Iphone is, they don't like Apple, and/or they look at headline specs. In other words, they don't care or understand what Apple sells. They think 200MP camera is the best. 10 trilliom MHz processor is the best and 4 TB memory is a must. I personally don't like the Iphone but believe me, if WM actually managed to copy the Mac OS X interface, WOW. Credit should be given when deserving.
