Comment: Free Iphone!!
Good: Ease of use
Comment: Seems to me that the marketing of the product is much better than the actual product itself.
The phone is perfect for my wife but not for me. She'd probably give it an 8 but here I am doing the review and not her.
I am used to smart phones actually being smart phones. This is more of an mp3 player / toy with the added feature of a phone where either I hear echo's or the recipient of my call does on a regular basis.
200,000 apps out there out of which I've found about 20 apps that I don't want to delete off straight away so far in 6 months.
Congratulations to Apple on excellent marketing and building up hype. Shame on me for falling for it.
Check out eBay for an auction of a very good condition used iPhone 3GS.
Good: Easy to use
Bad: Lacks a lot of things a smart phone should have
Comment: I feel the iPhone has been over hyped, for the features it has got and what it lacks, it is amazing why it can be rated so high while there are other phones that have better features and cost less. I believe its rated according to the feel good factor and not what it does, incredibly biased review I must say.
Bad: Needs multi-tasking
Comment: Best phone on the market in my opinion. Well done Apple!
Comment: This is the best smartphone out there by far, what other phone gets so many jealous haters?! lol only because they dont have one they hate on it, and why didn't cnet give it a 10?! if anything deserves a perfect 10 its this!
Good: Nothing!! apple is too far up its own backside
Comment: iPhones alright but to common and too controlled!!
Good: Apps! Compass! Google Map!
Bad: slightly big and it doesn't suuport flash browsing
Comment: there is no reasonwhy you shouldn't consider this phone. The only downside is the contract options available and if you're a internet maniack you'll miss flash big time..
Good: I don't have remember anything more than my keys and money when I leave the house
Bad: Connectivity issues, big bills :(
Comment: Love the Apple iPhone 3GS, however, not as robust as it could be, but couldn't live without it.
