Good: It can do an incredible amount of things packed into an amazingly small frame.
Bad: The OS bores you after a while.
Comment: The OS is really good but bores you after a while. You never actually realise the amount of power and ability it holds. Teh OS updates may be useful at times but they don't give the OS that new feel that everyone wants.
Good: Design, quality, screen, etc
Comment: Right, first things first, i would like to complain about the people who give this product a bad review when they don't even have the phone.
Before i got this phone i was always trying to prove that my LG Viewty Smart was better than and iPhone and yes in some ways (camera, expandable memory) it was but then it clicked...the reason why i was always trying to find features that the iPhone didn't have is because i wanted one. So about a week ago i got an Iphone....and it was the best decision ever. I have fallen in love with it. It puts a smile on your face. Every thing is fun whether your transferring money or playing meaningless but great games.
Yes it has its flaws but when you actually have one you forget all about them (though that doesn't mean you can, APPLE!!)
The build quality is so good it feels like your holding something thats worth £500.
Oh and by the way i wrote this review on my Iphone.
Trust me if you want one don't hesitate and buy anything else because one day you will find yourself talking to an iphone hater trying to prove your phone is better.....unsuccessfully!!!
Good: Massive array of low-cost apps, does nearly everything.
Bad: Only about 1-2 days battery life.
Comment: This a brilliant phone I've been waiting for years. It does almost everything you could want it to do out of the box, and if it doesn't, you can probably download an app to enable it to do so. Solid build quality but the rounded shiny edges make it a bit droppable. Battery life could also be better, so you really need to charge this thing while you're sleeping. Overall I love it!
Comment: This thing is simply brilliant. Go out and get one now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good: How easy it is to use
Bad: How expensive it is
Comment: I thought this was really expensive, but luckily I managed to get mine for free easily through this
website my friend told me...
To get a FREE Nintendo Wii, XBox 360, PS3, Wii Fit, iPhone 3Gs, Macbooks, iPods & more, all you need
to do is:
1. First of all sign up to the website, http://www.FreeGadgetSite.com
2. Then complete a FREE offer, I'd recommend Intuit (if you're from the USA), or LOVEFiLM (if you're
from the UK) which are a 100% free trial, there are other great offers on there too!
3. Then get some friends to do the same!
Good: accurate touchscreen
Bad: everything else
Good: Good for photos
Bad: It's very annoying to use
Comment: I've had my own iPhone 3GS now for about 4weeks so you'd think I would have got used to it but no - it's a comedy phone...a joke phone.
Firstly it has rotten radio reception when compared to my old Blackberry and I'm regularly without any service which defeats the whole point of it being a mobile phone.
Then it annoys you by reporting on screen that you have no service which you then have to "dismiss or choose another service provider" - Ha! like I have another service provider!
It's shaped like a bar of soap and I have dropped it more times than I care to remember.
The touch screen is not as good as a regular button and doesn't always register your finger being in contact with it.
APPS... I bought loads of Apps including a 'note writing app' which I absolutely need for work to jot things down. BUT every time the phone software needs updating ALL my notes are lost and it happens every time...I never lost my notes when I had a Blackberry.
Also, the iPhone confuses the Apps icons. I had 'Fuzzle' with a Weather App as its icon - why?
Faffing around - If you like messing with your phone, fine get one, it's perfect.
If you need to get on with life and work hard and be efficient - forget it.
If you need new underwear?? Great! the iPhone is all the PANTS you'll ever need. Utter utter uttter Pants!
Did I mention that it crashed? Anyone ever had a Blackberry crash?
It's such a shame really coz I was looking forward to using it, but now I'm stuck with it for two whole years before I can change back to a Blackberry which I defo will.
I loved my Blackberry. I can't say the same about my joke phone.
