They claim to be testing the sat nav features of both phones so I can guess which phone will win that battle!

:D The N95 is a nice phone but after having owned a painfully slow N73 for the past year I have had enough of Nokia handsets. My old Nokia 6630 was far superior. The more they keep adding to the N series phones the slower they seem to run. Until they receive a worthwhile processor upgrade then they are not worthy of my consideration. Also the iPhone is far more sexy looking.

Gadget Show iPhone vs N95 Review:

Fatuous facile ill-informed ********.

I got the distinct impression that the whole review was "produced" to within an inch of its life - Working in TV myself, the artiface was transparent.

Being unable to find a location in Google Maps is a flaw within Google Maps, or a flaw with your spelling/search string, and nothing else... So that bald ****'s inability to find specific locations on the iPhone, had nothing to do with the iPhone's capability, and more to do with the supposed limitations of Google Maps (or possibly with his inability to spell foreign place names whilst using a non-English version of Google Maps)...

And as for not being able to see the text field of a website whilst using multimap - Is this true?! I don't have an iPhone yet, but I got the impression that the text you were entering appeared in its own box on the text entry section, and one was also able to tab down to the next field using a handy button... Anyone with the iPhone can confirm this? If true, it's an indication of how the gadget show was utterly dishonest about the limitations of the phone, and simply because the bald moron didn't know how to use the interface. The whole review irritated me beyond belief. Typical Channel 5 tabloid bollocks.

Stupid and obvious tests, they really tried to play on it's weaknesses. Hasn't put me off though, I am not buying my iPhone to take pictures on, or help me navigate around a city, I am buying it because it is an iPod and a phone, the only two things I use day in day out.
