    Default tetsu´s list of iphone shortcomings

    first of all... i think the iphone is a great device.. and a very revolutionary one... i think all the other cellphone makers are taking notice of it... and they are going to the drawing board (i really want to see what nokias iphone clone will be) and it will make cellphones much better in the future.... anyway.. that does not mean the iphone has no shortcomings... here is my list of the most annoying ones for me...



    1- Bluetooth working only for headphones! (no use as a modem, you cant send or receive files... and you can sync with it!)
    2- No access to local storage (from the pc or from the iphone itself)
    3- No video recording
    4- No access to the sim chip (no numbers showed on contacts!)
    5- Problems with international caller id and sms showing correctly
    6- Problems with flash sms not showing
    7- No permanent cache for applications (safari, mail, google earth, weather, stocks)
    8- Speakerphone and earphone too low!
    9- Platform is too closed! No 3rd party apps!
    10- keep adding yours people!

    i think everyone should take the iphone on its own merit. As a phone, even a cheap prepaid phone available in oz beat the iphone in features. But take it as an ipod with a phone built in, its on a league by its own. I love my iphone but it will never be a replacement for my e90. Its just my travelling companion as an ipod with a phone.

    Sure there are lots of drawbacks, but they're all relatively minor ones to me. The bottom line is that there is no other phone on the market that has a single advantage over the iPhone, unless it is either:

    a. twice as thick
    or (actually, it's usually "and")
    b. with half the screen resolution

    When nokia makes a 320x480 .46inch thin phone, I'll buy it and throw my admittedly-imperfect iPhone on eBay. Until then? I don't want to hear anyone refer to a crappy LG or Nokia not-even-close-to-as-cool phone as an "iPhone killer" just because it has 3G!

    i agree with you on many things alexbo... the main drawback of the iphone... arent this things.. but that is a TIGHT AND CLOSED phone.... unlike every other phone maker...

    nokia n95 for example ..... is a very powerfull device.... it has many better things that the iphone... but is not that impressive.... and symbian60 is so SLOW compared to the iphone....

    the thing is compared to the iphone everthing seems so slow! and like you said.. there is no other phone that comes close to the experience the iphone brings...

    um, you see the alphabet listed on the right of your contacts' list? If you hit the letters of the alphabet it jumps to the section of your contact list...........that is the search function. A very effective one at that.

    what i love about this phone, is that most if not all your problems will be fixed in updates by apple and/or the dev team and all the wonderful developers out there...

    unlike allot of other phones i have had, this one is sleek, enjoyable to use, intuitive mobile device, its an ok phone, its an incredible device, the fact that we can update and now create our own apps on it means the iphones your oyster.

    bashing it in threads hopefully will make dev's and hax#'s make some cool developments ;o)
