Mr Copy-and-Paste here uses iphone fever like a bible.
How very sad.
1.7 MILLION units in THREE DAYS.
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..."

Hardware flaws (exclusively in iPhone 4):

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.
Excellent review. My gripes with iPhone 4 are: 1) Lack of mechanical camera shutter release, which could also have doubled as a voice record button if (say) double tapped, ideal for making a note of ideas when in the car. 2) The 3.5" screen is way too small for reading and should have been bumped up to 4". 3) Poor speakers, as noted in the review. So, am considering the excellent HTC Desire.
i don't really get apple, they make some great UI and polish it really well, but when u put HD movies support u should insert some huge memory (at least 48GB!) or allow hot-swappable memory cards, and video player should support most video codecs available,, and why the hell don't they allow accessing the phone's memory through pc?
Saurav, 02 Jul 2010Oh after this review I think I am going for iPhone 4 instead of Galaxy S. But still confused w... moreThe colour on the Galaxy S super amoled screen is unmatched. However, the the Iphone 4 retina display has more pixels per square inch (translating into sharper display)
Have a look at this..... http://blog.gsmarena.com/super-amoled-vs-retina-%E2%80%93-galaxy-s-and-iphone-4-displays-side-by-side-and-head-to-head/ It will clear your doubts.
Oh after this review I think I am going for iPhone 4 instead of Galaxy S. But still confused which one has the better display? Super Amoled or Retina? If any lucky and rich person have both the phones then please tell me.
Apple iPhone 4 review: Love it or hate it
I HATE IT
nothng new but the display, everything else is junk 2 bad...
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2010im glad that THE phone for you is one with terrible faults, that you yourself are experiencing... moreHow did the iphone4 have terrible faults? Oh your referring to those lies from haters caused by their desperation? Lol. Please name me a perfect phone and I will give up my iphone :) Yeah, just one perfect phone with no single complaint from a user :) You can't. So what's wrong with me standing up for the phone of my choice? And what's wrong with me loving my phone? And least I am not hating like you :)
What a GREAT TEST GSM ARENA. Thanks. iPhone 4 is like Apple. Some big loves, some big hates. Yes. But better then indifference !
I've never a Apple because I don't like this company. But I've tested iPhone's friends(3GS) and compare with others devices, it's so smooth, easy to use, intuitive...
And, you stay with the same OS, change every year once your device. Not one time Symbian, after Androïd, after Bada.. Depends which device (features) you like....
iTunes is just disgusting and iPhone depends so much but App's are just crazy (compare with Symbian, OVI or even Androïd)
Now the LED Flash is coming and time for me is to come in the iPhone world !
What I can buy if not ? Like GSM Arena says :"Smartphones are never the best never perfect". Example Nokia N8 seemed perfect BUT 1st test says "Symbian^3 is still slow, not news and app's very poor !".
I dislike HTC; Samsung, LG... I like very much SONY ERICSSON but I want an HIGH-END device. And SE announced very low-end news(X8, Yendo), and "actual high-end" are completely late (Satio, Vivaz aren't update anymore; X10 has old features and late update..) COME ON SE or give up !
After all, Nokia is the biggest company of mobiles. After Philips stopped production for Europe in 2006, I've bought N93, N95 and N96 but often with Nokia the "great device" before launch became a deception (except N95).
I'm really disappointed for choice my next device (replace my Satio). Would like a GREAT SonyEricsson but must choose iPhone4(White) or N8.
But Nokia :-( Hope for a SonyEricsson WinMo7 really POWER !!
