So, effectively, the i4 is for righties ?????...
i LITERALLY LAUGHED OUT LOUD ON THAT ONE !!!!!!!
I'm a leftie but for some reason I use the phone in my right hand all the time.
As for the antenna problem, Steve Jobs didn't say "we'll look for a solution to fix this", he goes and calls out other brands and says "look everybody, Apple isn't the only one with antenna problems" and almost every other brand responded with disgust within a day, and MANY youtube videos popped up proving Jobs being wrong. What a complete douche Jobs is, and he still is with that piece of comment earlier last week.
I'd have thought lefties would hold the phone in their right hands. Which makes the iPhone 4 for lefties... ******ed ones, obviously
i swear i could put my nokia n900 in a lead box and it would still have a better signal than i4 lol,seriousley my n900 is that good though. so loving my desire though
But if you need to write something down and you have to hold it with your right hand and then you loose the call!
What's your verdict so far on the HD then?
Assuming it arrived that is...
I will never use anything that needs itunes. I'm sure it works fine for lots of people, but for me it has always been a disaster - I hate it with a vengeance. I have a ton of music and video (video all in .avi format), and with the Desire, I have no need to convert and can play straight from SD using Rockplayer. mp3s I can just drag and drop, with my own damn folder structure, and no screwing about with iTunes updates that crash halfway through, lock up the damn phone etc etc. Never again, never. The playback of .avi video really is the kicker for me though. (Love my Google Satnav too) Not an iphone hater (Just an iTunes hater), in fact I quite like it, but the Desire just ticks more boxes for me.
What on earth is the deal with all the iPhone 4 hate?
The Desire is an amazing phone. Shame about the battery life and the camera but hey, it's amazing - not perfect - right?
The iPhone 4 is an amazing phone. Shame about the bluetooth and the easily solvable antenna issue but hey, it's amazing - not perfect - right? Well, it seems not.
Lets review the points shall we?
1) You can't make calls. (Haha. Yes you can).
2) You can't bluetooth files. (Annoyingly true).
3) iPhones were crap "back in the day". (Irrelevant).
4) It requires jailbreaking to do "half the stuff the Desire does" (No it doesn't).
5) My old iPhone broke (So what? Almost all of my old phones have broken).
6) You have no control over an iPhone (for most users this is not relevant BUT it is to geeky tech-tinkerers. Whatever floats your boat).
7) Steve Jobs will tell you what to do with your phone (......)
8) It's a piece of crap (moronic)
9) Battery life is crap (it's better than the Desire)
Anyone out there with an explanation for all this bulls#!t?
I really dont want to get started on this....
Just well see you back on here in a few weeks saying you took it back
You guys know that you can think two different phones are good, right? I mean, what are you all, five years old?
Are you posting on here with your new Iphone4?
Nope. Using my macbook pro (I suppose that that is a pile of crapple too, right?)
I did post before that I didn't end up getting the iPhone 4. I simply couldn't part with the money in the end (much to my dismay).
I'm going to check out the Desire HD's image and video capture (these features are simply arse on the original Desire) and I may go with that.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but I don't accept the Desire's photo capabilities are "arse", it takes perfectly good photo's. I'll grant you that HD video capture doesn't work too well, but at the default setting it's fine. It is after all a phone! I have a proper camera for photo's and HD video and anyone thinking a phone is going to rival dedicated kit is deluded.
Techradar's review of the HD has left me feeling far less envious than I was before I read it; I'm happy to stick with my Desire.
I'm all for people trying out different kit, but when they start to slag something off in order to convince themselves their new bit of kit is so much better, it's a bit overboard. The Desire has proved itself to be one of the best smartphones on the planet; it's not perfect, but neither are any of its rivals.
For my purposes the Desire delivers the goods and then some.
Nope. Not by current standards. My N95 8GB and N86 took far better pictures. Years ago.
You should work in PR. HD video capture on the Desire is a disaster.
Anyone thinking that the Desire is in the running with current hardware across manufacturers at the same price point is deluded. Multimedia capture on the Desire is a joke.
As mentioned (twice) I've stuck with the Desire. In fact I'm sat at my desk looking at the fact I have 18% of the battery left after less than 12 hours since unplugging it this morning (10hrs 12 mins). The Desire needs slagging off. It's a bit overboard to defend a phone you own simply in order to convince yourself it was worth the purchase, no?
See how they're slagging off the Desire HD on that forum? And how you re-evaluated your desire (hoho) to want one? These phones need people to be objective about them for the benefit of prospective users.
Yes, the Desire is a great phone. With some major flaws.
As has been said earlier. The iPhone4 is also one of the best smartphones on the planet.
Maybe the op is holding his Desire wrong?
Are you bored?
Troll, troll, troll in the dungeon.
Unless you're "holding it wrong" and don't have ugly rubber on the phone.
Yes, it does. Care to access the file system without jailbreaking? Ah yes, that's right: you can't. Want to replace the default launcher without jailbreaking? Oh look at that, no go. Install apps that don't come from app store? Run emulators? Mmm-hmm. I'm not even trying. It doesn't even run Youtube very well, while we're at it. You'll wish you had Flash just to watch youtube in browser, because the native app stinks.
Is the OP bored yet? Who cares, but I certainly am!
The Desire does not have major flaws! What a joke.
This guy is getting on my tits now, so I'll leave him to his teeth gnashing and enjoy my phone while he winds himself up over nothing.
Or just about any other site on the net!
i think everyone is entitled to like what personally suits them,as i say my dad loves his i4.but what i will say is that the antenna is not solevable by cases if thats what you mean,it may make it marginally better,but truethfully(an im no hater)the cases make little difference.
Nice one ladddddddddd
If you have 18% battery left after 12 hours then you're certainly not clever enough for a smartphone, so perhaps the iPhone4 would suit you...
Please, this is boring now and has been done to death on so many threads, if you want an iPhone4 then get one, it's your choice or stop moaning about it!
itunes, no flash support and Steve Jobs. 3 reasons (amongst many others) why i wont ever own a iPhone.
i'm sure the OP expected some criticism when he announced that the Desire was not for him. especially seeing as he posted in the Desire forum.
as a Desire owner and user, he's entitled to his opinion and i, for one, welcome his thoughts and opinion even if they differ from my own.
but please people, comments like "he's getting on my tits" and "you're not clever enough to use a smartphone" are a bit out of order. please try to keep this thread at a respectable level.
the iPhone is not for eveyone but neither is the Desire.
