I honestly dont see the point in 3G when you have WiFi unless you really need to surf the web or do other things on the go all the time. I also think Steve Jobs is right about 3G not being mature enough yet.
the point is that wifi is spotty and if someone had 3G in their previous phone, going to EDGE is not fun.
That being said, I think EDGE + wifi gives a good enough experience that I'm thankful for the longer battery life.
WiFi is only spotty if you live a weird lifestyle or are a fuller brush salesman.
Coming from a Blackjack with 3G, EDGE is painful. Can I live with it? Sure, but I'd rather not...
It makes sense, WiFi is a short range low power solution compared with EDGE and 3G which are longer range, higher power solutions.Interesting article. I've seen alot of talk on this forum about how their batteries drain faster on wifi and that it should be turned off when not it use and also turning it off, can offer better charging times while on the dock.
This article is completely opposite. Here I am at home with the wifi always off to conserve battery and these guys are getting better battery life with wifi on an connected.
if apple can do egde better than others, why don't they think apple can do 3G better than others? or reduce size better than others?
If Farmer Joe can improve the size of the brown chicken eggs, why can't he improve the size of white eggs? Or wave his magic wand? Do you even realize that Apple didn't build the chip? When Apple comments on the size of the chip and the integration, they're talking about what solutions vendors have been able to offer them. Moreover, if these same specialists can't make the 3G chips smaller, why is it that Apple can magically make the chip smaller?if apple can do egde better than others, why don't they think apple can do 3G better than others? or reduce size better than others?
that chart indicates that iPhone's battery lasts longer on EDGE than blackberry.
I was just disputing the statement by anantech which claimed that 3G will be too much battery consuming for iPhone because blackberry's 3G is draining battery faster, do you have a problem with that?And you never once considered the tiny little fact that there are so many different factors that affect 3g/edge+battery life out there that such a comparison is pretty useless? You know, like different chipsets and batteries and hardware in general and...you get the idea.
oh please, its more like how you arrange 5 eggs to occupy smaller space than reduce the size of one egg, what do you think the iphone is? a brick?If Farmer Joe can improve the size of the brown chicken eggs, why can't he improve the size of white eggs?
Yeah, I can't see any logic behind that sentence, and I've read it three times. My egg comparison is basically saying that if you can coerce your chickens to make a smaller brown egg, the same techniques and solutions may not be available to you if you were trying to effect the white eggs too. This is of course, if Apple was in charge of the chickens/chips at all, which they're not. They're talking to the farmers, and the farmers are saying "Nope, can't be done yet. But we're working on it."oh please, its more like how you arrange 5 eggs to occupy smaller space than reduce the size of one egg, what do you think the iphone is? a brick?
