As everyone know, iPhone became really famous after this product got in the store. In a sense, It's a copy of iPod touch, at least, because of the outlook and of course, because of music player. Here is my review about iPhone.
Of course iPhone is very famous, because of It's outlook. Of course outlook is great, there is a one big touch sensitive screen and one button, what has only one function - bring you back to "home". You don't need some stick to move menus, It's really easy to surf in menu with your finger.
All things functions so coherently, and It's really unfamiliar, example, to use WiFi, you don't have to change any options or retool profiles and you don't have to worry. All things what you haven't done, and you want do continue it later, it always opens from same place and everything is auto-saved, so you don't have to worry.
Nevertheless little screen (of course It's huge for mobile phone), It's really easy and comfortable to use Safari. iPhone be good for watch things from internet, because you see the website all over the screen.
As I said, in the iPhone, there is also iPod Touch, and of course, It's best mp3 player to get right now. You can change your songs with your finger, just move your finger along the screen. Of course sound quality is really good, not like some other phones, what sound quality is really poor. It's real pleasure to listen good music, with good sound quality.
Nevertheless camera size, as you know It's really small, but picture quality is amazing for that size camera, and It really impressed me.
In addition, there are also application shop named App Store, there are thousands of "App'e".
Also there are separate application for YouTube, so you don't have to go there across your website search engine.
New iPhone also has GPS, and also there is a navigation application named Maps.
With iPhone you can't send SMS forwards to other people, and also you can't copy these. Also It's not available to send contacts with SMS.
You can't copy or paste text's with iPhone, example if you want to copy and paste your passwords to somewhere in the internet, you have to take pen for help.
iPhone alarm clock wakes you only then, when iPhone is connected, but many other phones wakes you even then, when It's not connected.
iPhone has camera, you can make pictures with good quality, but you can't make videos and of course you can't send these.
There aren't any useful functions in camera, you can't zoom, change brightness or something like this.
iPhone internet browser don't have Flash player, It means, you don't see some websites with cool design and also you can't see videos, what recourse on Flash.
With iPhone, you can't send MMS, It means you can't send your pictures to your friends so easy.
Nevertheless iPhone's big capacity, you can't use it as memory stick, but older iPods you can use as memory stick.
Opening some folders takes a lot of time, example, opening folder "Settings", It takes about 2 seconds before It opens, and sometimes It's gonna be really annoying.
Earphone sound is a little bit low, but you could accustom with it.
Battery durability is not very good, battery empty about in 3 days, especially if you use it really often. Also you can't change inner- battery, also It's not possible with iPods, I don't believe, that Apple make changes about that.
As I said, outlook of iPhone is really good, great curved edges. Curved edges are beautiful, but really slippy and could fell down and then, surely It gonna broke. Also all these fingerprints makes your iPhone really dirty.
Price is really huge, about $500, in my thought, there are many other phones with same good quality as iPhone has, so, in my thought It's too pricey.
