Me neither, never seen the point in them, I've had access to email (their main selling point) on just about every phone I've had for the last 10 years if I wanted it. How much have I used it - not too much to be honest lol
imo its not worth another Â£500 on PAYG, I would get it if my contract was up however again i cannot justify spending all the money for all these new devices that do just aabou he ame job...dont gt me wrong its a lovely device I had a play with the iphone 4 yesterday.
People spends thousands on all these devices..ipads etc etc, just making Mr Jobs rich in my opinion...people must have money to throw away these days, I'd rather save and buy a hoinda civic GTR (which am doing now) rather than buy all these daft devices...iphone 3gs does the job for me really well, i love it...everything I nee in my pocket apart from a new girlfriend haha!
I agree with that and there's always going to be a higher proportion of issues reported than happy customers but the fact is the reception issue is looking like it's down to poor design. It's either that or they just never did the ergonomics study on how to hold a phone.
here's problems with the latest evo 4g. supposedly the iphone 4 killer.
um normally you hold onto a phone when you're drawing on it so I don't see the video as a major issue. As to the iPhone killer, first off if the iPhone was the killer phone it's supposed to be I'd have one (I'm a tech junkie after all) and second how can the evo (US only for one thing) be a killer when it's on one network using due to using 4G, and not even a major us carrier. Besides personally I would rather have the droid X if I was going for a 4.3" screen phone especially considering we can't use the 4G on the evo (the droid x will eventually come to UK I would assume like the original droid).
(selling way less than iphone btw but we'll get to that later when you claim apple are sh*t)
did I say that other phones did not have issues?
Did I say 'every' iPhone was having the issue, nope I said you MIGHT have an issue plus I offered a solution if you did :up:.
I could have easily listed of other things such as the volume buttons being reversed (it happens), the yellow screen issues (looking like it's the screen 'glue'), issues with the mic and external speaker at top of phone (probably shorting out somewhere ) but those sort of things are things which can happen easily enough.
But not being able to hold the phone like normal due to touching the metal in the wrong way is a pretty fundamental thing to have 'not' found out wouldn't you say or maybe the whole reason apple decided to do the 'bumpers' was due to them knowing there's a flaw in their external antenna.
The other possibilities are apple missed the issue due to 'hiding' the new phone in a fake case while testing or maybe a manufacturing issue has prevented the metal surround being coated in a clear finish to prevent the cross antenna earthing which is taking place. There's a rumored software patch coming, yet most people feel the issue is hardware related not software because it only happens when it's held left handed.
But like I said in the first thread on the iPhone, there's a reason most other phones hide the antenna inside the casing. Even the old external antenna's on phones (talking 5-10 years ago now) had a plastic/rubber coating on them so we didn't touch bare metal.
nor can you release a phone and expect 100% of the new owners to be educated.
a glass doesn't cost around 500 quid (or contract) and isn't so much of an issue if you drop it. I've dropped my phone more than 5 times when pulling out of my pocket and it's still working fine - why maybe because it's not made of glass and rigid aluminium, a certain amount of flex in a product can sometimes be to it's benefit (oh yeah I mentioned that might be an issue in the last thread, damned training in product design is haunting me even now )
oh and good one taking links off gizmodo, probably the only tech blog not allowed any communication or link with apple ever again.
