    Thanks... I did search using mroogle first but found nothing. I think it's a bit pointless... they should've put an 8MP camera with a camera on the front for video calling... and they should've also made it a lot thinner.

    why 8mp when you could make it 12mp? also, why only make it 2x as fast when you could have made it 12x as fast? also, why only 32gb when you could have made it 1TB? also, why is it so expensive? why cant it be free? apple really sucks.

    It's just crappy old technology if you ask me. I mean don't get me wrong I'm a gadget freak and I love my Apple products but the iPhone is just crap compared to my N95 8GB with 5MP camera and LED flash!

    Well I have a 10mp camera with a real flash that I paid under $100 for. I thought we were comparing phones though?

    When people say video chat, do they mean though like apps. Like aim or something? Or like a phone call but you can see each other?

    The iPhone has a faster processor and a better graphics card. It's never been popular for the breadth of what it does, it's popular for the elegance with which it does what it is capable.

    It's far faster and it has a longer-lasting battery.

    I've got a 12MP camera and an iPod touch... but what I mean is that it's a good feature to have just incase you don't have your camera with you. The features on my N95 outweigh even the newest iPhone.

    Yeah that's what I mean.

    Why are you posting here? We all know that other phones have some features or technical specs that are better than the iPhone, and we're OK with that.

    Yeah but how many fart apps does your N95 have? I think the iPhone's got you beat there.

    Who knows what the S is really supposed to stand for.

    Just like the i in iPhone / iPod... it really has no meaning, and I hate the number of phony products, slogans, etc. that are now called i(Something) simply because it's so cool.

    Then it sounds like the N95 is a better fit for you.

    Exactly.

    No one is forcing anybody to purchase an iPhone. There are many other options out there. Best to get the one that fits your needs the best.

    That's fine. It's definitely not for you. :)

    The hype comes from the software, the hardware is really not that great.
    Its how all the software works is why i, and many others, enjoy it.

    Huh:eek:

    We need to compare Cell Phones with Cell Phones the N95 is a little different when compared to the iPhone

    No one on the market will produce an 8MP camera on a Cell Phone, the camera portion cost alone would cost more then the phone. The iPhone was not meant for a professional photographer to take with him on a wedding and take photos, so there is a device for each specific area, Cameras on cell phones are getting better but they are meant for a quick photo and not many of them, most ppl will buy advanced cameras for those photos.
