Secret Confessions of an iPhone 3G Owner
Cheap hypervenom soccer cleats nike mercurial with sock if you’ve been reading my columns each week then you know that I’ve had quite a few things to say about Apple’s new iPhone 3G and few of them were compliments. In fact, I’d resolved never to buy it for a bunch of reasons I spelled out in The Dracula Phone and Ten Reasons nike mercurial with sock Why I Won’t Buy the 3G iPhone.
1/ Build quality, seemingly in line with lots of recent Apple products (the nano looks and feels cheap and tacky) the new 3G iPhone seems to have much worse build quality than even the original iPhone. The metal bezel on mine was so ‘unflush’ with the rest of the device it was embarrassing. The headphone volume button came off on my first 3G cheap hypervenom soccer cleats and the ‘vibration’ button was dodgy at best.
2/ cheap hypervenom soccer cleats Crashing Apps even after multiple reinstalls of the new software, Apps still crash regularly. 3rd party apps are better but still crash a lot.
3/ GPS at times its a joke, my cheapo TomTom never had me on the wrong street, APple say its ‘consumer grade’ GPS. er no!
4/ Reception aside from the well documented 3g issues (i have never been able to make 3G actually work and do anything even though the 3G icon shows) the reception as a regular phone is rubbish in comparison to other phones (specifically a Nokia 6300 and RAZR). AT first I thought it was the network (o2) as I’m in the UK, but having tested the other 2 models in the same location with the same network, I am sure its the phone.
2 examples in one area I had ‘No Service’ on the iPhone 3G, but 2 bars on the RAZR and 3 on the 6300! Searching for carriers on the iPhone didn’t nike mercurial with sock even reveal o2 as an option.
Secondly i was on the iphone and had a 4 bar Edge signal. Within a walk of 15 yards on a street I had No service at all. The other 2 didn’t wobble.
5/ Syncing and push email well lets face it, its not as described and it doesn’t even work properly.
5/ Mobile me not directly related but an unmitigated shambles none the less.
really disappointed in general, lots of Apple stuff recently seems to be ‘less stable’ Leopard been the best example. I know the pain of things breaking (usualy the day the warentee expires and take them in the next day) and having to replace stuff. It seems that now you have it in your hand a lot of your critisms nike mercurial with sock have gone and you have been man enough to admit maybe some of your previous vitriol wasn’t deserved.
I assume you still feel that its not a worthy upgrade, but as a clean buy (for whatever reason) its worth it.
Personally I am more than happy with my dirt cheap Nokia 6300, it does the phone thing and I can use it as a mp3 player when just popping out and can’t be bothered to take my ipod. I don’t see the point in getting the latest greatest fashion accsesory nike mercurial with sock cheap hypervenom soccer cleats.
