iPhone overview: Apple of discord

06 August 2007
Cutting edge, sleek and promising, the iPhone stirred the mobile world – not bad for Apple’s first go at the mobile phones market. Inspiring and provocative, the iPhone will always come to mind when a handset with full touch-based UI is in question...

All iPhone customers should threaten to pay off their contracts early and switch to the Google phone on Vodafone….I’m sure Vodafone would be willing to do a deal if there was 1000+ customers willing to switch! O2 would have to give the free upgrade or face loosing 1000’s of customers!

These are the handsets I own

Vertu Ascent Ti
iPhone 16GB
HTC P3300

And the phone i enjoy the most is the iPhone, granted out of the box it doesnt give you the "features" that you want, but with a little help from the Jailbreaking community and Cydia or the official App Store...you could get a lot more "features" than the other contender phones.

The games made for the iPhone absolutely rock!!!!

Why shd Iphone company add more resoanable and selling features on this phone than wasting their time inceasing the memory to 32gb, thats nosense.
Add things like document editor, increase the camera strength,
Am not going to buy such damn fone (better look for nice phones)

oh man! i could have bought the fone if it weren't for this review! Your review is excellent! although i like the LG KS20 review better... This fone sucks bigtime and sadly, i only realized it when i read this review!

Major Setbacks:
1. Stone-age Bluetooth
2. Not as good 3rd party nabber as smartphones
3. lack of multiple text input (no.2)
3. CAN'T FORWARD MESSAGES! (my dad's friend told me)
4. Battery runs at 80% after 400 charges... (a year if you charge it daily, battery prob. dies at 1.5-2.5 year)
5. Bad speaker capability...
6. Crappy fone calls (see web)
7. Glass touchscreen, means DROP IT=BROKEN SCREEN!
8. No MMS!
9. Limited media transfer capability:
Bluetooth (no.1)
MMS (no.8)
No custom ringtones
"must buy" audio from ONLY itunes
10. NO 3G!
11. the moment you buy it something new comes out... and it uses an old adage, insanely great!

If you have the money to spare, BUY IT for the experience only! Features, nah....

i love my ipod, and before it came out I said I was going to buy it, then I tried it out, and didn't like it. I hope they make a new one, because then I can get that!

  • me

this is the best phone review i've ever read...complete. all my questions answered.you are now my added to my favorite.

  • anthony

hey doesnt any one know if the bluetooth feature will work in my car? i have one of those built in hands free thing in my car that allows me to talk on the phone through the car's stereo system.

  • vince

hey people.. can anybody tell me if you can use the iPhone without the sim card as a camera and ipod until i get it unlocked? i just dunt wanna keep it un box and stare at it until then? can i play around/use it?

  • JK

And given that this review was fairly critical of almost every aspect of the "phone", will there be a pro and con section that lists "stone age bluetooth, mediocre camera, poor address book, poor loudspeaker" etc against the touchscreen? This overview needs an update now.

Hey guys, I got an unlocked I phone from puremobile.com for $ 550, it is great.I dropped it twice, but works fine (luckily I have ordered a rubberized skin too). Although the 2MP camera is not enough, picture Quality is not all that bad:). I really recommend.. it worth....Long live apple...Wonder what they come up with next..Cannot wait..
