They do in-depth reviews and remain unbiased. Every phone has its flaws and so to does the Iphone. If you want reviews praising the Iphone then go to the many available fanboy sites. If the Iphone is the best phone for you then that's good for you but don't go bashing this site. Everyone has their own preferences and not everyone has a use for the Iphone. I currently have the Iphone 4 and even I don't believe its the best phone on the market. This is my opinion. If I didnt get it for a good deal then I would have not bought it. It's a premium product that I don't believe it is worth. I don't understand why a lot of apple fanboys don't realize they are paying extra for the brand. What it sells for does not match its features. Again, the Iphone 4 not being the best on the market is just my opinion and everyone is entitled to theirs as long as they don't bash other phones.
if you restore an iphone 3g to factory settings *through itunes* & then update to 4.0 it will run LIKE BUTTER! i know because thats what i did
SMS tones are still not customizable
No proper file browser or access to the file system

The reviewer talks about the likes AND dislikes of the software and is all opinion anyway. It's NOT biased. If you don't like it, go read a review somewhere else.
This is the latest biased review by gsmarena. Hey ppl why don't you focus on the things that iOS does far BETTER than any other os and instead give us your regular biased stuff.
No Flash support in the web browser - and what? i am missing some ad banners
No true multitasking for all applications - i am not on a desktop to run 100 apps at once. I don't need my phone to be laggy because of this
iOS4 for iPhone 3G has limited new feature set - as if apple should support their phones forever. who else does it?
Poor performance on iPhone 3G - try installing win 7 on your 10 years old machine
No quick toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or 3G - really?
No social networking integration - do I need all this stupid social networks stuff wherever I go?
No info widgets on lockscreen or homescreen - my homescreen looks better without them
SMS tones are still not customizable - should I put the new Britney's song?
No mass mark emails as read - never thought about this
No proper file browser or access to the file system - Apple's approach is better - most of the people don't need to do this on a mobile phone
No USB mass storage mode - I have usb drives to store files. 16 or 32 GB of media content is all I need
No vibration feedback when touching the screen - I don't intend to touch it with my ass
No Bluetooth file transfers to other mobile phones -
Contacts lack a swipe-to-delete or mass delete feature - don't you think they are syncable?
No SMS/MMS delivery notifications - oh, what a fail
No smart dialing (but Spotlight is a somewhat of a substitute) - I have never dialed numbers quicker compared to any other phones I've used - Nokias, HTCs
No DivX or XviD video support and no official third-party application to play that - another reason for committing suicide
The whole iPhone is too depe
Pathetic OS, every single version of it. And re "And by the way, applicants for the next iPhone killer are welcome again." where have you been gsmarena, original iphone was just a bad joke and since then it was brutaly murdered several times..
Pyro, 26 Jun 2010Simple question,your nokia can play tower bloxx as played on iPhone?your nokia can install 500... moreNokia N900 can install upto application size of 744 mb. Can your iphone do this??
thnx a lot gsmarena, as far as i know.. none of the other review or mobile fone site wud ever point out ' whats still mising'. there just giving it a straight hit.
funi how apple fan boys keep defending an obviously defective pdt, but feel tht they got a world class pdt for their $$$....keep posting....it really makes my day....
Applicants for the next iPhone killer? Isn't the Nexus 1 been doing that since it came out?
Pyro, 26 Jun 2010Simple question,your nokia can play tower bloxx as played on iPhone?your nokia can install 500... moredude.wats with 500 mb?thats sheer stupidity.have u ever seen s60 on action?5 mb is the maximum size for all s60 appz..we dnt need 500 mb apz coz s60 works fine with below 5mb size appz
Anywho, when is the review on Dell Streak gonna pop up? Everyone seems verry happy with that phone. Delicious 5 inch screen!
iPhone OS4.... bringing features from 2004 on a 2010 update is just sad... Just go out and buy a unlocked HTC device from 2005 for 70 USD and you would still be better off.
iOS4's does exactly the same thing 3G does, FREEZE APPs, NOT MULTITASK.
The only difference is that now, it shows you what apps are frozen in the background.
It should be really called "OPEN APPS BOOKMARK with APPS KILL OPTION".

Anonymous, 26 Jun 2010Every "New" feature listed is not new at all.... It's been on other OS's for ages.. ... moreI totally agree over this issue. thanks that u have taken time to awake GSM people. They are just getting freaky reagarding iphone.
they said multitasking is going to be great on ios 4, but still i cant run my skype account at background,its signsout atomatically everytime i put in on background,could anyone helpme????????????
The positive side is the ability to quickly resume an application exactly where you left.The good thing is that despite all these apps running in the background, the OS is quite stable and fluid on the iPhone 3GS. ------>>>
Are GSM people have included themselves in apple ship. These application are not going to run in background, so no more activities in background then how the hell OS is going to affect ?
Rather than multi tasking, it should have name TASKSWITCHING. :)
