    If it's anything like the comparison review (iPhone versus N95) that they did a couple of weeks ago, it won't be worth wasting my time. I know how good it is anyway.

    The SE W960 won on audio playback quality. Though the iPhone obviously won hands down in simplicity and speed of finding a song on a music store (iTunes) and downloading.

    As a music phone there was never any doubt that the iPhone would win, the UI is gorgeous and beats any other phone currently available.

    Surely this test was invalid as the quality of the encoding the track was done in would be by far the most important factor in the audio playback quality test. For a programme called "The Gadget Show" I was hoping for a little more understanding of the basics. They didn't once mention the encoding from the online stores each of them bought the tracks from!

    Expecting scientific rigor in a prime-time TV show? Whatever were you thinking? :)

    They do, and it is much better, but it is much shorter and not as wide ranging in the items it reviews. It is computer rather than gadget related really.

    It's repeated several times a week. I tend to record it on a Saturday morning.

    But they did specifically mention that they put the SAME file onto all three phones for the blind listening test.

    the same file, thats stupid, the iPhone one must have been .AAC, and i dunno about the other 2, but they may well use different format types, or bit rates!!

    gadget show, is very simplistic.

    Pretty much any phone will play .AAC MrT8064, just so long it's it's not an iTMS DRM protected one.

    Yes. Must have been. God knows that the iPhone cannot begin to cope with MP3s.

    Apple's music players have never enjoyed a good reputation for sound fidelity, with the possible exception of the MK1 Shuffle. My MK1 Mini was particularly poor in this regard. There are other reasons to choose Apple's range over the rest.

    That's not what he was saying - the point is that if it was an iTunes Store download it will have been aac, while downloads from other online stores will more than likely be mp3.

    This could of course be, as suggested in another thread, because everyone has returned their iPhones at the end of the 14 day period. :rolleyes:

    while there may be those who have returned them, i want to know how many of those are non-apple fans. we all knew what we were buying and what the limitations were, theres nothing on the phone i didn't know about so im taking it those who took theres back were either faulty or they didn't know what they were buying in the first place..................

    What do you mean 'coming through the dock'? The iPhone dock has no sound output. Do you mean some sort of sound dock, like a speaker system?
