Excerpt: I think that the apple phone is a waste of time, because of the gliches, and random things that it does without anyone doin anything. I am not a fan of touchscreen at all. The phone is to big, and one drop and it falls apart. I will admit that the internet connection is wonderful. It is fast and direct...the battery life is excellent, even after being on the phone for over an hour, the bars still hold up.
Excerpt: Apple Iphone 4GB Anyone, really, that purchases this phone is in it for the trendiness it offers them. Sure, its cool. Internet, touch screen with that "sticky thingy" (stylus),internet blah blah blah. All in all YES! cool phone with awesome stuff to play with. Quality wise, it's just awful. The screen smudges and i dropped mine once and the entire front face of it cracked all the way down the middle!! I'll never purchase an Iphone again.
Summary: Having done a college project for the iPhone, I think I have a solid undertanding of the product. Now with that said, I must say as a very loyal Apple user, I actually don't like the iPhone. After you get over the shock of that, I'll explain why it's not the best phone in the world to get. Why you should pass... 1. It's not meant for everyone. If you don't like using a cell phone in general, steer clear.
Excerpt: Ok.... I love mac.... love love love mac. I refuse to ever buy anything microsoft or pc ever again. I thought the iPhone was pretty cool when I first heard about it (minus the fact that it is on AT&T's network.) I never really got to play with it until my bro foolishly went out and dropped $500 cash for this thing. I have to say that at first it was a little like being starstruck. I was ooooing and aahhiing at it... and then I started playing with it.
Excerpt: In my opinion the commotion over this phone is only the touch screen interface, strip away that feature and you have a less advanced phone than many of the other current phones. This phone reminds me of the iPod (also from Apple) that is so overated and yet still people keep buying it jus so they can say "I have an iPod too" while there are still oter better mp3 players out here like the Zune.
Excerpt: Lets all be realistic here, wow ITS ALL TOUCH SCREEN... now that that’s over, lets get in reality, besides its nice looks, one it will be scratch magnet no matter how "Scratch resistant" it will seem, No matter how slim it is, its still wide and tall, There will be no immediate third party software for the first year, it will probably freeze because of all its graphics its running and have several overdoses within the first year, No matter how good the battery may seem,...
Summary: How can this phone get a rating anywhere near its opposition. It has beautfiul looks and a fair size memory with a nice screen. However this is a mobile phone/camera/internet browser at heart. Its rubbish as a camera only 2MB, try taking a shot in a dimly luit room then it really shows it colours. As a phone one of the main things is audio quality of call, this is decidedly dodgy. Internet browsing, hang on is this a 3G phone???
Pros: Looks, memory and screen
Cons: Cost, no 3G, rubbish camera, Battery (wait til you need a new one)
