Why does everyone insist on checking apple related stuff when clearly all you have to say is narrow minded nonsense?
You all sit there saying it doesn't have this and that...who cares...no one...
If apple were that bothered with missing features leading to lower sales then they would do something about it.
Seems alot of people here miss the whole point of the iphone. It's not meant to be the be all and end all of mobile phones. No one is saying its the best phone in the market...everyone has their own taste and make a decision based on their needs...not everyone needs a FM radio, sd card slot, etc etc...
I dont see why there are so many haters...if you don't like it then don't read it...to be honest you lot constantly trying to step on the iphone probably draws even more attention to it.

On a subsidised contract its £50-80 more than most other high spec phones
Not everyone is out of pocket €700+!!!!
A tiny 3.5 inch screen on a new full touch flagship device in 2010?! God lord... The more i read the review.. the more i am realising that Apple is nothing more than a cult where people use what they are told to use.
Looking at the specsheet, give me one good reason why a unlocked Iphone 4 cost around 800 Euros and not around 300 Euros? And give me the same reason why Samsung Galaxy S and HTC HD2 can be brought for half that price with twice the capibility.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2010FM Radio..theres an app for that.uses data services plan= no free radio
My girlfriend's 35 Euro phone has FM radio. In Apple products, not even 740 Euros suffice to have this. Ridiculous.
And before someone quotes sales figures: don't be a nerd. It is not your company. Why should you care how much they sell? You have 740 Euros less in your account, tough.

Mr Copy-and-Paste here uses iphon... moreHey that's just people moving from 3g to 4 not 3gs those in contract will wait for 5. Look the fact of the matter is iphone came out before android and will definitely have more apps but don't forget that apps is not all that makes a phone. Functionality is my main issue with iphone. The reason I say this is that iphone gives you less for your money while android gives you more for your money. I have more variety of phones to choose from and lets be honest how many apps does one need. Besides I can side load if I want instead of locked to getting one from the store especially if I don't want to pay for it.
The iphone is good for what it's for(lazy,naive people that like been told what's good for them). The sad part is in the end who will win. Apple has to remember what happened btw the 80s and 90s. People will get tired and want more eventually. I believe that is already showing or else you wouldn't see the influx of android

How very sad.

I bet that makes his teeth grind :)))
Don't you dare say you hate Apple's product. You'll be automatically labeled "douchehbag" That's how schoolboy's marketing works, effectively at that :D :D :D
"Apple’s latest is always the greatest – you have to give them that..."
Just want to thank our lord and master Steve Jobs for not including this bunch of features in iPhone 4!
Thank you Steve jobs for not including these useless features we neither want nor need!
iPhone is the best!

Anonymous, 02 Jul 2010go for the Samsung wave.Exactly, you forgot to mention the Wave. Same hardware, but none of the Apple restrictions. Once that Samsung Apps store picks up there will be only one choice.
iphone4 is best phone no any other phone match this phone i m love it to use
Saurav, 02 Jul 2010Oh after this review I think I am going for iPhone 4 instead of Galaxy S. But still confused w... morethe engadget review is biased because they did not compare both phones from the normal distance instead they've zoomed too much and only concentrated on the pixels,so if you want fair comparison check this "lucky guy" video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVJhiWlOUAo
i am a nokia fan for 10 years now but i have to admit, iphone is simple and beautiful both in design and UI. All nokia fans know it despite what you hear. But damn its hardware and features are just unimpressive and compared to 5 year old smartphones, easily breakable body, reception issues... Those are the things i don't find on a nokia. Is a matter of quality.
