Consumer Reports,America's most trusted source of product review said it would not recommend iphone 4 coz of a hardware flaw with its antenna that sometimes resulted in dropped calls .The independent consumer magazine also cast doubt on Apples recent explanation that a software bug had caused the widely reported problem.Apple did not return request for comment.Most of fanboys must have read this news flash,any comments??

Anonymous, 12 Jul 2010I just warn people not to buy phones fr sony. Android apps are not very good from HTC legend e... moreAndroid phones have processors touching 1 Ghz and more RAM, they have 720p video recording available..and much more ..that too without being in contract with any operator...choose your own operator :)
btw I'm not saying Iphone is a bad phone, it was good when it came in first ..things have moves on since ..they are lot better phones providing much better features than iphone..
but if you like your iphone. you do have apple iphone fan boys forum in gsmarena..u can talk about all the things you like about your phone :)
I don't think promoting any brand in another forum goes by the rules of gsmarena,n iphone is completely out of context,anyways Aayush u have posted ur query twice but nobody bothered to answer u.So pl go to menu selact calender,go options tab on new entry,then from that select anniversary .occasion u can put ur contact info n birth date,then put the reminder on,hope this helps.

OS 4 is the latest OS released by Apple correct?
Android 2.2 is the latest from Google ok :)
Android 2.2 is 4 times faster than OS 4 :)
and as u said other phone leads in ghz,megapixels and blah blah...even the resolution is better on Android phones :)
Its game over for Iphone :)

Android apps are not very good from HTC legend experience. 3Gs brought higher processor, RAM, touch to focus camera, best 480p video recording in class and bigger memory. Apple admits that they did not update design. Updating design a lot is not good. Apple keeps design same like original Ipod. People will know it is apple product just by a glance. I know Vivaz is lower priced but every touch phones attack apple now with low price. In the end like in MP3 player sectors, Apple will win :)

Own another phone apart from Iphone you will know the difference. :)
Pinch zooming is available in most of the phones..so nothing new, video calling was available since late 1990's on phones...Iphone got this feature this year lol..and say we bought video call to the world...That was the joke of the millennium :) People laughed when they said it, they were like Apple Good Morning... lol

The only good thing about the Apple is the Apple Store but for that you need to shell out money. On the other hand Android market contains apps which are mostly free. Android OS is customizable to one's need. Apple OS is like the Apple's monopoly. They cheated users in making them buy iphone 3GS. Where as the only difference between 3GS and its predecessor was RAM upgrade, rest were all software upgrades and that could have been implemented easily on 3G but they want users to shell out money for it. Android is open source :)
If u will read mostly current iphone users bought iphone 4, this shows there is not much of a success in market capitalization :)
and if you like Apple products they do have their forum on GsmArena. :)

You can have 20GHz processor on phone but if your OS is rubbish, it will still lag. You can have 20inch screen on phone but if resolution is low, it will just make words more blurry. No other phone use quality material as Iphone. All look plastic toy. Noise cancellation function with 2mic on Iphone 4 is very useful as well. Iphone 4 is not expensive now. It is about same price as Samsung galaxyS or Nexus one but only better.

I know capacitive doesn't have pin point but apple redesign OS for finger friendly so it is no problem at all. Sound quality on Iphone 4 is best in the class. Read all sound test. Itunes is biggest store for MP3. Simplicity and detailed design always stands out. Designer stuff always turns out simple LOL Anyway sales prove everything. 1.7million iphones sold in such a short time

I cannot count how many of my friends complain about nokia and they always say they wish they have iphone. Iphone OS is much much better. (Apps apps apps). Everyone will develop apps for iOs b4 others. Ipod music functionality is unrivalled. Iphone 4 brings two way video call which is new. If you sell Iphone after 2 years contract, can get 60% of original price as demand is high. Others phones get 40% at most. Signal issue is with AT&T. I use Iphone4 in UK without any problem. Buying Iphone is like buying Nintendo DS as new apps are coming out everyday but buying other phones is like digital camera. The functions are fixed and no g8 apps. If you offer Vivaz and Iphone4 free to people, I'm sure 90% will choose Iphone. It is that attractive. People shouting Iphone4 sux as they can't afford one. Inside their heart, they want one so badly.

Before comparing Iphone with Vivaz pro..although they are not rival's and don't belong to the same category..You do realize Apple's flagship Iphone 4 has been beaten by many handsets even before it was released..its no more than just an expensive piece of brick.
You do need to know vivaz pro cater diff section of users who like phone's with a physical keyboard.
1) Resistive screen and Capacitive screen do have their advantage and disadvantage...Capacitive screen don't have pin point accuracy to that of resistive screen.
2)Symbian offers more features than Apple's OS..
3)There is hardly any difference between the two browsers..You can have Opera installed on Vivaz.
4) Sony's Speakers are better than Ipod.
5)Iphone was voted as the most ugliest phone right from the time it was released :)Sony steals the show when it comes to design and quality
6)You forgot the camera quality of any Sony phone is better than Iphone.
7) Vivaz is budget friendly compared to Iphone :) and Vivaz scores on value for money.
8) You can hold this phone anyway you want to :) Signal Reception is not an issue :)
So in all Iphone needs to pull up their socks in order to be competitive. :)
If u need a proof why people buy Iphones ..here is why :)
After watching this lemme know ...do u want to be named among Iphone users? :)
Hope that helps :)
Nina, 12 Jul 2010Does anyone know when the Vivaz Pro will be available in South Africa?Vivaz pro in South Africa,maybe from tomorrow,football world cup is over now lol,sorry pl check ur regional SE site or visit ur local SE dealer.
I still don't get why sony don't understand tech.
Reasons Iphone kicked off
1) Capacitive screeeeeeeeeeeen which provide different input style
2) Good OS far better than Sybian
3) Good browser
4) Long established ipod music player with touch optimised system
5) Great finish and design
6) Great glass screen prevent reflection
7) Apps store idea instead of uncontrolled apps like WinMo
8) One model release a year like other ipod line
If phone manufacturers follow above, they can compete Iphone. Otherwise, long live Iphone.
I really wanna see smartphones other than apple which is as good as iphone. But there is none.

Aliza, 11 Jul 2010Hi Grace,I have been using vivaz pro since last three weeks never experienced laggin or stuff ... moreOhh great! Thanks a lot (:
Now I'm thinking if I should get Vivaz (if possible) or Vivaz Pro, I suppose both wouldn't really lag and would have unlimited space for text messages?
Does anyone also know if there are a lot of differences in the performance between the Vivaz and Vivaz Pro? Or any reasons on why one would be better than the other?
