"Apple’s latest is always the greatest" If it was the greatest we'd still be at #1. Fix known bugs and add a feature or two for each release, and you have a recipe to line Steve's pockets. iPhone 10 is probably already on paper and many will happily buy 5-9 on the way.
I love my iPhone 4, and i can't wait for the jailbreak to come out so i can use my globe sim... but i need to manually cut the sim card first which i did with a sun cell sim card and it was a success... all i need to do is to have it jailbroken and unlocked... i can't wait!!!!
I am not surprise to see many HATE comments.. its true HTC/Nokia/Samsung providing better mobile with lower price. all i love love about I-phone is Music and lots of applications and games.
As for the US tech blogs, sorry, but they simply don’t have a clue what they are talking about. The US tech media is well known globally for being ignorant about mobile generally – they live in such an insular, inward looking world, and are highly defensive and protective about home-grown technology (Android, iPhone).
The truth is the N8 makes current and rumoured iPhone and Android devices look like over-priced toys. The truth hurts – it hurts Android and iPhone fans, and it hurts US tech blogs who love their home-grown tech. So they slag off and do down non US tech. I’ve seen it lots before. Luckily the US is actually not a very important mobile market at all, only about 8% of world’s mobile users live there. So I think we can live with the US, loud and proud as they are, not appreciating Nokia technology. It’s their loss.
4 generations later and still no haptic screen feedback. Lulz. Pathetic. Even the oldest resistive touchscreens from Nokia and Samsung have it, and it's the most important feature for a phone that has no hardware keyboard or hard buttons. Apparently, Apple fanb0is can't operate an electronic device with more than one hardware button, it is too hard for them. HypePhones are still a solution looking for a problem.
Is it that Apple's programmers are not able to make file transfer via bluetooth possible? Or is it Steve Jobs' own obstinacy that's killing the iphone? Why make a great product and limit basic current cellphone functionality such as bluetooth file transfer unavailable?
Why would one buy this product whereas HTC and Samsung already have far better products? I think that's because of being prejudiced! Don't u think so? And needless to say, it is widely loved in the u.s and not in other countries. Everything is locked on this stupid phone! Apple can make better products but they don't, cause they can market their faulty products, so why would they bother themselves! They know there a great number of people out there who can't wait to buy their faulty products!
cholate milk, 15 Jul 2010HATE IT... but gonna buy it...under apples pr control so
First, Steve Jobs teaches us how we should be holding our beloved iPhones. Next, he tells us its a software glitch. Now he wants us to cover certain part of our phones - and hopefully we'll live with it.
Even organizations like ConsumerReports have already spoken out against the iPhone4 after repeatedly testing the product in their labs.
In my opinion, Apple is slowly approaching Toyota-land with this defective product.
LOS ANGELES/SAN FRANCISCO, July 13 - Shares of Apple Inc (AAPL.O) slid more than 4 percent on Tuesday after a poor review for its iPhone 4 from an influential consumer guide underpinned mounting complaints about the hot-selling device's reception and spurred speculation about a product recall.
Why do you think they arent selling them at the moment! NO, its not because they havent made enough! May it be because all the iphone 4's are flawed? Ithink so! Get ready to send your iphone back.
I disagree with some statements in the review.
1. Still no true multitasking is not a con, it's a plus. I never, ever want full multitasking that will slow down what I'm doing, as on so many other phones.
2. The reception issue is a REAL issue. Don't tell me it can be eliminated by a bumper or other cover - bottom line is that if it does not work perfectly out of the box, it's an issue. And simply because I'm left handed and stay in an area with limited reception, you cannot expect me to cover up my beautiful phone the way Apple is covering up this issue.
3. I hate custom wallpapers, and think it creates a bad user experience, with icons and a background both fighting for attention. The background should be black, like the phone.
The iPhone 4 is a defective product as it is due to the reception issue - and no matter what software fix Apple comes out with it won't fix a HARDWARE problem. Did Steve Jobs know about this problem an still decided to sell the phone is another issue. If you need to purchase a third party product to fix the signal loss problem like a case then the very least thing Apple should do is provide a case completely FREE or in a-worst-case-i-don't-think-it-will-happen-ever-scenario a recall.
Nice design outside - crappy inside.
ionutzm05, 06 Jul 2010Main disadvantages
- Hardware design is prone to reception issues - I agree
- MicroSIM card ... moreYou forget one important cons:
Iphone 4 is not back compatible with older versions of Apple OS like Tiger. Its like buying an expensive gadget windows7 compatible but won't work with xp. Now that sucks....
It's not being a fanboy of apple... They make a device once which lasts forever not like others who just keeps on updating phones as to match the iPhone.it is true that other companies try to compete against apple as apple sets the benchmark and others follow..iPhone 4 is the benchmark and now let's see which all phone comes closer to it till the next year before another gem is revealed by apple.....
well apple fanboys,your iphone 4 may have a dodgey proximity sensor,screen showing dead pixels or spots and liable to smash or crack,potential fire risk when charging through usb and your itunes account may be hack and result in you getting a large bill but it seems apple has tackled and found a solution to the iphone 4s most awful fault its 'death grip' poor reception with this great new invention.....haha see here for the best solution!!!
