Its everything like the symbian functions in nokia so nothing great. Just got it a week ago now selling it off b'cos I'm already using nokia.
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2009Not true, im not an apple fan boy, but its very smooth UI and a very good OS (compare to this ... morehi!computer whiz baby,
u'r apple iphone has got,
1. No video calling,
2. No AD2P on the Bluetooth,
3. CAN'T share ANY (mp3, images, videos....) files via bluetooth,
4. Can't use as a wireless modem, (you pay ridiculous data charges to activate internet on your phone, but cannot connect it to your PC and browse when you are at home)
5. No copy and paste,(cannot copy a part of a.... say.... email & send it....have to type it out yourself)
6. No 3.2 or 5 megapixel camera,(the 2MP camera it carries is worst camera i've ever seen..... photos look like they have come out of a VGA camera)
7. No video recording with camera,
8. No front camera,
9. No flash.
10. No JAVA support
11. No physical keyboard (BELIEVE me! this alone is a dealbreaker...touch keyboard as good as it looks...once you use it then only you come to know about the importance of having a hard keypad)..........
3. No removable battery. (You cannot change battery. Have to send it to apple outlet.. Come on now!!!!...This is not an iPod. Its a bloody phone. You cannot live without phone for 2-3 days)
14. No hap tic feedback and
15. Cannot send MMS,
16. Can't use as external storage device (16 GB of utter waste..next time you go to your friend's house & find some interesting songs, movies, etc...Sorry you cannot connect your '16 GB' phone and share it!!!! Apple apparently has a solution.. " BUY MUSIC & MOVIES FROM iTUNES STORE "..... Give me a break will you APPLE!!!)
17. No FM radio,
18. Can't use your mp3 files as ringtones,(This is heights man!!!)
19. Cannot insert any other SIM card….
20. Completely tied to iTunes... Connect to your friend's iTunes & you risk erasing everything on your phone.
We Indians are used to these features. Most of our phones already have these features. we cannot do with out them.... i mean can you imagine paying so much for a phone with which you cannot transfer files via bluetooth. What age is this ...STONE AGE???
Some features may be activated by jailbreak.. But why the hell should you risk losing your warranty after paying so much.
And want to add third party softwares??.. YOU HAVE TO BUY THEM FROM iTUNES STORE ONLY!!! . (Shell out more money). Apple is a bl**** control fr***. Dont surrender your freedom to it.
On the contrary, we in India have so much freedom. We go to handset shops & buy which ever phone we like. Then go to carriers.. Checkout the plans & buy SIM.. Dont like the plan or rival carrier came up with a better plan???? EASY.. just remove & replace the SIM.
Apple are trying to IMPOSE THEIR MODEL ON US riding on the hype iPhone has created in the US (yes it was a flop in Europe .thats why Apple never talks about its sales in Europe).
Dont fall for the subsidized price of iPhone... CHECKOUT THE DATA PLAN ATTACHED TO ITS SIM..they will recover the cost through ridiculous data plans. Bill might come to around Rs 2500/month.(ATLEAST AMERICANS PAY THAT MUCH)
Finally i wud like to say Iphone is the best looking phone (its touch interface is nothing like you have ever seen ), best browsing experience out there no doubt .... ( others are fast catching up) but still for us nokia and sony are the best........
Nokia hater, 29 Nov 2009Hi, the comments here made me real anxious, is this phone really that bad?

And by the way, I'm real sorry for those people died in Jaddah, you know, by flood.
can adobe flash player 10.1 for mobile will work on this phone? but for symbian adobe flash player 10.1 will be launch on the 1st quarter of 2010. The CPU, as been specified for symbian,should be at least 500MHz ARM 11, this fone has 600MHz ARM Cortex A8.. Hope the flash player will work, I like this fone.. I'd love to buy if it will work...

God, how do they manage to convince so many people that this phone is good. Outdated technology re-branded into the most expensive con.
Those who are planning to buy Satio, GO FOR IT, I'm so happy with my unit. I would like to imagine that those unit sold here in the Middle East (I'm from Saudi)are perfect as I've never experience any problem (except as I mentioned earlier) the audio recording. Camera is just wonderful (Satio won as Camera Phone of the Year while Aino won as Music Phone of the Year), GO SATIO, GO!!!
Everything is perfect with my Satio except the audio recording. Video recording is perfect but this is only my complaint the audio. It's almost you can't hear anything on the recorded video. Do you think guys this problem will fix on updating FIRMWARE UPDATE. Please let me know if new firmware is already available. Aside from this small problem with my unit, SATIO IS A PERFECT PHONE FOR ME.
to all satio users lets rate the satio to the highest level guys............!
Li-Po 1000 mAh battery doesn't last very long just like the LG Arena which has a similar capacity battery. Lasts three days also and less if you use more functions. Compare this to a Nokia E72 which uses a Lithium 1500 mAh battery and the juice lasts longer. Don't know why phone companies don't want to put bigger capacity batteries in their phones to extend the period their phones can be used. Even the iphone has a large capacity battery - my first generation iphone has a 1800 mAh battery and it can last almost 5-6 days on standby.
I was also nervous in getting this Handset, with the massive variation in comments here.
I went ahead and got it, and im suitably impressed with the phone.
Only gripe is Battery life (3days = 3 charges) but I think its more cos I cant put the phone down, Love it
I am starting to believe there are 2 types of fone on market,,it seems that whatever make/company lots of people have no problems and the rest have problems with fones,,sounds weird to me..

Don't hate Iphone if you are just jealous that your beloved phone company cant compete with it.
So what makes Iphone really good?
-Its UI, it got a very simple and touch friendly interface. It is very Sensitiv.
-A lot of good apps. If you want some Photoshop-like apps, and some HQ games, get iphone. (e.g. NBA LIVE, RED ALERT, RE4, GTA)
and of the reason why people loves iphone is because of the support that apple gives. REMEMBER THAT ITS OS IS JUST KEEP UPDATING SO YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT.
Jailbreaking the iphone will give you a lot features like MULTITASKING, CHANGING THEMES, CHAGING THE DESIGN OF THE ENTIRE UI/OS, and if you are really good in a computer, IPHONE can be anything you want.
