The Market Leader

Posted

Pros: Human interface, applications, capabilities, reliability

Cons: Battery life

For me, a mobile phone is my mobile access to my connected world: voice, web, email, and social networks. The iPhone is my mobile computer. With the variety of applications allowing me to connect my computers to it, my iPhone has become my primary interface to the world, with larger computers being there primarily for longer typing sessions. This is the picture of where we're headed. I'm aware that some people are stuck with issues around the software keyboard, and the Storm's tactile glass may be a way to address it, but from the beginning of using an iPhone, I found a willingness to adjust to the keyboard to be in my favor. Now, after a year, I type very well and quickly on it (and the...

Best phone I have owned, with some room for improvement

Posted

Pros: Full computing platform, beautiful screen, great iPod/PMP, App Store, GPS

Cons: Unrealized potential, no select/copy/paste, no Bluetooth keyboards, crashes

 Introduction I have owned over the past 15 years a new PDA or cellphone every year. The best have been: Psion Series 5mx (portability, OS stability, portable Office document creation and editing, battery life, keyboard), Palm 750p-Sprint (keyboard, OS stability, battery life (with extended battery)). The worst have been: anything with Windows Mobile -HP 4705, Treo 700wx-Sprint, UTStarcom 4700-Sprint -all having to do with OS instability, horrible internet experience, and dreadful user interface. iPhone 3G trumps them all in: user interface, screen quality, multimedia play and iTunes, phone quality and functionality, interface with Outlook Exchange, and Apps - App Store. It falls short...

One of the best phones available

Posted

Pros: Great interface and the App Store is amazing

Cons: Battery life has me worried

I'm sure I'll update this review after some additional use, but here are my impressions after a weekend with the phone. This is my first iPhone.  I was holding out for 3G and it seems like the wait was worth it.  The data speeds are great and it excels as an internet browsing device.  The user interface is intuitive, I haven't had a single issue yet. The App Store is what is going to really going to set this phone apart from the competition.  Even at launch, there are quite a few good quality applications and I'm sure it's only going to get better.  It's so simple to search/browse for applications on the phone and then download/install them.  With the integrated GPS, the possibilities are...

"Stop Bogarting the iPhone!"

Posted

Pros: great design, handy

Cons: addictive, may cause marital strife, battery hog

Both my wife and I had our AT&T contracts come up for renewal this month,so we were in the market for new phones. My wife wanted to upgrade from her Razor, and had her heart set on an iPhone. I love Apple, although I can't currently afford or justify a Mac, but remained a bit skeptical on the iPhone. We decided she would get hers and I would evaluate it before deciding if I wanted one too. After a screw-up in activating it that was wholly a reps fault, not Apple's, we were on our way. Actually we could use the wi-fi feature the evening it was not activated, so that was handy. Call quality is avarage to a bit above. Way better than my wife's old Razor (louder too), and about equivalent...

Pros: amazing interface, easy to use, numerous features, all-in-one

Cons: gets temporarily frozen ocassionally

I LOVE my 3G!  If you're looking for a new phone, this is it!  The features are amazing.  To name a few of my favorites: 1) iPod/video, phone, GPS, and internet all-in-one2) visual voicemail (you can choose which voicemail you want to listen to and what point of the message you want to pick up at)3) you can download many webapps for free (fun games to play when you're bored)4) you can sync your iPhoto photos to your phone to scroll through to show your friends5) most places you search for on Maps/GPS have phone numbers you can click on to call instantaneously6) your work email and calendar (if your company uses Microsoft Outlook) syncs automatically7) you can have multiple email accounts...

Worth it

Posted

Pros: Cheaper for one, Faster, Universal headphone Jack, Lighter, better look, GPS, its from Apple

Cons: No insurance, Two yearr trap with AT&T, video camera

  So apple does it again. I had gotten the iphone 1st generation and loved it. The look of it the way it felt in my hands and lets not even begin to talk about features. See i wanted an ipod beforehand for so long, as well as a cool phone, well the iphone satisfied that hunger. U got ur email, music phone, internet in the palm of your hands everywhere you go. I'm always on the thing. cant let it go. Now in 2008 came an upgrade, even cheaper, faster and overall a greater enhancement. And unlike other phones apple did not forget its previous owners, like me. There was an update for the year I'm sure change phones forever. The app store. Tones of free applications made by developers all over...
