“I love the iphone, it has almost everything I need and...”

Written on: 26/08/2009 by neeshap (4 reviews written)

I love the iphone, it has almost everything I need and looks great. I have recommended this phone to others and even those who do not go for techy phones have started swaying, thats how good this phone is.

The only downside I can see is lack of certain business uses e.g. at my work place we have an online calendar that you can subscribe to via .ics files. The iphone doesn't work with this and other business phone users such as Blackberry work fine. My line manager who will be approving… Read Full Review

I found this review not helpful because it does not explain what the problem was. Why is it so bad?

Written on: 04/08/2009 by neilrobertson (2 reviews written)

No doubt the Apple iPhone was game changer when it came out. I too was entranced by the hype machine and wanted an iPhone and to be honest, with good reasons......in places.

I say "in places" mainly because there are some major things that bring the iPhone down in my opinion, but first lets cover the good.

Good things:

1) It's a beautifully crafted device
2) The screen is fantastic
3) The touch interface is the best out there
4) The ease at which you can buy/download applications is… Read Full Review

Mine has replaced my phone, iPod and ipaq with a single device that also gives me even more functionality than I had before! A cracking device I wouldn't hesitate to recommend… Read Full Review

“So I love my iPhone and I couldn't live without it all...”

Written on: 21/07/2009 by dhayes22 (54 reviews written)

So I love my iPhone and I couldn't live without it all things considered. I used to carry around a Blackberry and a mobile which wasn't an ideal situation. Add in the fact that I also carted around an iPod and a camera and the pockets were getting crowded. The iPhone gets rid of that dilemma for average everyday situations (I would still always take a camera on holiday or to a party for example). So it's already got lots going for it.

The more I use the iPhone the more I find new things to do… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2009 by vanessadeagan (1 review written)

I bought an iPhone 3G from Italy where they come factory unlocked. At first I was very impressed. I simply inserted my UK 3-Network SIM card and I could use my free minutes and Internet allowance (I have heard rumours that 3-Network have now stopped this, hope it's not true).

I was totally blown away by the amazingly smooth graphics, and the contents that was available on the App Store (including some very cool free apps).

Unfortunately, after a few months of owning the unit, I soon grew tired of… Read Full Review

I cant believe how much i agree with everything you have just said about the iphone. I own a HTC Hero myself, and it is an amazing piece of kit, and i have not found any fault with it yet. Apart from the bluetooth will only connect to in car kits, however this will be sorted when the new 2.0 software comes out very shortly. Other than that, i love it!! I wish i waited another 2 months tho, because now the desire is out, which is phenomanal!!! 1ghz processor?!?!?! compared to iphones lame 600mhz!! desire is the way to go. i sell business mobiles to businesses and it frustrates me when people want an iphone, because there very tight to do because of the cost of them! so over - priced, and definately over-rated. I dont see the fuss over an iphone, they just had very good marketing on them, and now everyone wants one. NOT ME :) I would rather have any htc all day long. If your looking for an android phone, HTC Desire. cannot fault it. I sell them on contracts, so reply back if your interested!!! :)

Written on: 16/05/2009 by Geo3d (1 review written)

I've had the 3g for a few months now and I still can't put it down. The screen quality and usability are second to none. Initially the qwerty keyboard was a bit fiddly, but after some practice even my fat thumbs type fast. The few limitations it does have are being addressed in version 3.0 of apples firmware which will finally complete this outstanding device. The safari browser is superb in which I'm currently writing this review. My last phone was a nokia n95 8gb which redoubtably had a… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/04/2009 by steverobinson0 (34 reviews written)

The iphone's is undoubtedly a good phone but the best feature in my opinion is the accessibility of the internet in terms of speed of connectivity and quality of web pages displayed. The web page expand-reduce functionality is really clever and useful. The only real reservations I have are that if, like me, your fingers are not pencil thin then using the touch screen can be a bit frustrating as the keys are very close together. Also, the camera quality is not that good, but I gather this will… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/04/2009 by kingofreviews (89 reviews written)

Overall, a great piece of kit, but I think anyone looking at it objectively will admit that it has it's faults. For me, the godd points o the iPhone 3G outweigh the bad by a mile, but if you want to just make calls and take pictures you can do better. For me the thing I love most is the App that allows me to programme my Sky HD box to record when I am out of the house - incredibly easy to use and works every time… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/04/2009 by nintendonut (1 review written)

I received my iphone 3G a week ago now. Having been an iphone 2G user I had great expectations. It was a mistake to set my iphone 3G expectations too high as it isn't much different. Its only marginally quicker (when 3G is available) and you do get the added benefit of GPRS. The GPRS could have been so much better if they added some basic sat nav functionality.

I used the iphone GPRS the other day whilst on foot in Manchester. It got really confused when the street density became high. The… Read Full Review
