    I'm very happy and excited about the battery section of the review. Nice. Very nice.

    Does that article just stop at the video for everyone else? Is that the whole article? I thought there was supposed to be some talk about battery life ("more on that in a moment")?

    yeah, it stops at the video for me as well, something is up. it looks unitentionalf because there are no source or comments after the video.

    edit: just tried on the engadget app on my iphone and it seems to have fully loaded the review.

    Great review. Completely agreed about the notification system. It absolutely blows, and I'm surprised it hasn't changed (especially for notifications from apps like Meebo).

    What battery section? That was the section I was looking forward to most along with the camera section (which I'm pleased about).

    I agree. My guess would be that the notification system will be next year's big change.

    Thanks for that.

    What browser are you using? The video is the end of the article for me on IE.

    Edit: Just fired it up in Firefox and it works fine for me. So everyone that is having a similar problem, try it in a different browser.

    Just as expected: another suckfest by Engadget. They would probably praise Steve Jobs' turds if they were given some to review.

    Engadget has become nothing but Apple fanboys, it's sad to see.

    So I take it your not thrilled about this new phone?

    Or is it just Engadget being unreliable?

    Nice review... Although the video didn't blow me away :( I think my flip (raw, unedited, just like that) does better :(

    While I agree most people on these forums would two-girls-one-cup Mr. Job's turds, I thought the review was legit. What do you not agree with? It covered both the positive and negative aspects. Hardware wise, there's not too much you can complain about with the new iPhone 4 but software wise, I think iOS 4 could definitely had a few additions/improvements that are long overdue (i.e. a notification system that doesn't cause the earth to stop rotating).

    And what else does your Flip do? Oh, that's right.

    From the Engadget review:

    "...and even a phone like the HTC Droid Incredible -- which just came out -- seems last-generation."

    I don't see what's so funny about that. Seems kind of juvenile to me that someone would find that funny.

    *shrug*

    I guess having choices suck? Umm... yeah I don't get it. :confused:

    I was thinking you might have a link for the iPhone 4 prototype overview they did. That would have been funny.

    I have a pretty good FANBOY DETECTION ALERT SYSTEM and it goes off on this forum a lot, but Josh never gives me the impression that he's biased in any direction. The only issue I have with his review was the lackluster coverage of what most of us with iPhones agree on is the phones biggest issue - it sucks as a phone. Whereas the Boing Boing reviewer concentrated on that aspect and reported back that the dropped calls persist, Josh kinda gave it short shrift. Otherwise I thought his review was stellar. He ripped Apple for having the absolute worst notification system, and he pointed out that Apple did as little as possible to bring folders to us, which for a company that likes to claim they'll only do something when they can do it the best seems kinda cheap and lazy.

    The battery life made me very very happy.
