Snapshot - 3G iPhone...Yes No?

Now that it is out...i've been thinking of getting the new 3G iPhone for wifee and myself...you see wifee has always been eyeing the iPhone but somehow i managed to refrain her from doing so...

Following the rule of thumb i told her to wait for the next generation of iPhone (the one with 3G lah) rather than grabbing the 1st model...like any other products i always believed that the next gen is always the improved one...

So riders any idea if the 3G iPhone is any good?...i made some calls to singapore earlier and some of my biker friends there told me that the 3G iPhone often hangs after you finish a call...is this true?...any of my riders with similar experience?...

Don't know too much about handsets actually. And what I'm writing here is just hearsay, second-hand from "someone else" and not my own usage.

The reason why I feel obliged to write this comment is that, by coincidence, I had read "a respected someone's" evaluation (will try to find that site again in the browser's "History")

Anyway, it's based on his experience of having used both iPhone and Nokia N-alamak, forgot - the TOP one.

Well, he said the Nokia N is markedly superior to iPhone, with the latter beating it in only one aspect: it LOOKS "more cool" than Nokia N-. That's just it. If LOOKS are crucial, well...

hi mr emran. i don't know much about 3G iPhone, but from what i read in the magazine, it said that the iPhone is not really user friendly. its only physically looks cool. but i think you should try it out first. who knows you may like it.

Lu beli la dulu brader... Kalu tak best lu jual kat gua quarter price.....

Cupin the Great said...

Lu beli dulu... Kalau tak best lu jual kat gua tapi quarter price... hehehe... But iPhone is hype only... TEngok memula best... Tapi dah sebulan guna, isk... camna aku nak buat benda nih ekk (ada fungsi yang ada di phone yang lain tapi tak der kat iPhone).... KAlau lu guna sendri ok la... Lu bleh godek sendri.... Kalau lu bagi wifee guna... siap la tunggu call tiap tiap kali.... p.s:- 3g connection with iPhone sucks....

Che' Em.. Kita kat sini kalau boleh nak pakai handphone biasa aje.. Barang yang terlalu canggih ni actually tak tahan lama dan memang selalu bermasalah la.. Tapi kalau u beli pun takde hal.. No big issue.. Kalau rasa tak sesuai or banyak masalah, tukar ajelah ke handphone biasa..

im in uk rite now. my fren sanggup queue awal pagi n berhujan during the launch of this iphone. he said the features are cool which u can download softwares etc. but i also heard bout what EE said in the entry..dat it hangs time call tu.

well, i think having 3g iphone is sumthing "in" rite now. so just get it for ur wifee lah EE. u tak payah ada iphone...ur wifee je.. hehehe at least u know if its good or not. if u buy 2 iphone for u n wifee, nanti u tak puas hati lah pulak kan.

apa lah i merepekz kat sini ni... hehe sorry...

EE, selamat berpuasa and advanced hari raya to u n wifee n baby EE.

Alai,
Birmingham UK

bro...have you try vodafone blackberry? its really convenience ,,push email, facebook, surfing, YM etc. im now using bberry curve and goin to have new model call bberry bold....

Adventure Rider said...

Bro, salam...
Why dont you try Blackberry Bold,,i think better . Im using BBerry Curve 8130 now..its very convenience for my work. Push email function ( any email comin pop up immediately , get u update at anywhere from office or you loves one ,) , chatting web such as YM,Msn, WAYN, facebook, GPS, Password keeper etc. Now Im planning to have new model BBerry model call BBerry Bold. BBerry services by celcom i think better from maxis...i been using it in swk , and almost every area got coverage . My frenz told me that iphone battery cepat panas especially when you use it for making calls. This my review...

HI there, I'm in the US n not sure if the application of the iPhone is the same or not in the Asian countries. I am currently using the 1st generation n my husband is using the 3GiPhone. I was a bit skeptical at first, but hubby is really into whatever it is that is new in the IT world. Anyway, I love my iPhone n my husband loveeeeesssss his. If you are the type who like to be able to check emails n use the internet on the go, iPhone is defintely for you. We no longer use our car GPS but instead use the iPhone's GPS. The bottom line is, ours work great!! IF you really want to know more about the iPhone from someone who really uses it, then I can ask my husband to email you.

You can get at Low Yat la at RM2999 for 8GB (ni "berenang" punya la).

But I think I would go for Omnia 16GB (8GB is external memory) at only RM2800.

IPhone 3G ada banyak problem jugak - macam2 patch kena download - dengarnya la.. anyway, went to the launch in US in July, this gadget is cool!!

Sara said...

Hi Ee,
me n my fren also surveyed 4 this iPhone, but I agreed with u..juz wait for the next generation...maybe they will come out with better one...model skrg a bit bsr..

p/s: nmpk u kt restoran puteri on last friday...we all juz tgk je la kt u...then u ada senyum la...thanks... =)

My suggestion you guys go for Blackberry Bold rather than iPhone. BBerry handles email more efficient than iPhone. And one more thing, kalau you guys jenis driving sambil buat call, iPhone would be quite troublesome. Btw other functions e.g. camera, wifi etc both are neck-to-neck. The only thing now is you have to pre-order Bold first BUT price is cheaper than iPhone.

My 2 cents.

Sakura said...

Salam Mr EE...O...kebetulan....sekarang ni jenama terkenal Apple..ada i phone 3G terkini...(boleh tengok pic menarik di blog saya)...Maybe...boleh jadi pilihan untuk isteri tersayang...keterangan lanjut boleh layari website

eyezuera said...

owh, one of my fren is using iPhone at the moment and sorry to say, sgt teruk yek ! not teruk, "teruk" .. dis phone loves 2 hang itself, maybe cos of 2 much of power electronics ! the transmission is not so gud .. sometimes bile org call, the receiver xdpt pon tht call .. pelik bkn ?? my advice is wait for the next upgrade version cos by tht tyme, they hv revised their features and the next edition might be better than the current one *crossing finger* and one more thing, dis iPhone's software is easy 2 b hacked and nid 2 b extra careful while using it .. in other words, u shud hv back up file in other places as well *laugh*

samsung omina bro.

fila said...

Go for it. I've been using it for a week, a Singtel model but bought in JB. You'll never regret and I have never experienced the problem you mentioned. Surfing speed is excellent using Celcom 3g.Youtube and the rest of the softwares are just splendid. But mind you, this 3g iphone can't do any video call..selamat beb! Ahak..

Engku Emran said...

Hi all...many thnx for your feedback...i see there are mixed reactions to it...hmm so there is some truth in the hanging thing...one things for sure i wont be using it heavily...i still prefer my nokia...saje je nak try 3G iphone ni as i can use it whenever i do my presentations too...easier to just hook up to my macbook air...wifee yang nak sangat 3G iPhone n...mungkin dia mengidam 'apple' kot kan...yes bberry bold looks cool...have booked mine already...senang sikit nak moderate my riders comments for BML using the bberry bold...so you can expect your comments to be uploaded much much sooner soon...

peanutbutter said...

bro.., buy nokia e71 (e series suit u guys well.."e" got it? for erra and emran hihi).

but seriously..this is one cool, slim and sleek creature. ada symbian some more..betul ke eja symbian tu? so that u can download segala jenis kodok applications kat dlm tu. price is quite reasonable compared to blackberry. rm1950. so, kalau tak suka throw it to me, i'll be running to u guys to catch it.

salam to your wifey.

nurul azmie said...

hi mr.EE,
klu dh mrs.EE mengidam sgt 'apple' tu, beli kn je la..
yg penting hati dia gembira.
time ni la dia nk bermanja2 skit. hehehe..

Ahmad A Talib said...

beb,

3G version here not user friendly as the first generation iphone. i got frens using both saying so. am using first gen iphone (berenang punya) tapi selalu hang. Maybe need to downgrade software to that of first gen..

Just wanna share my experience lar guys...
been using iphone 3g for 5 months now on celcom prepaid 3g. Even rite now posting here using this phone. IMHO iphone is very good provided the user knows how to use ir lar. At least got some common sense in computers also can use this phone. Lol. But in order to maximize the usability, jailbreak is a must. Hehe. With the new os3.0 the iphone just got better. More functions are unlocked such as the bluetooth a2dp. Push notifications. Etc. Well, thats my 50cents. Hehe. Enjoy!
