As I have recently upgrade, I had no real interest in buying the Apple iPhone but I believed (just like everybody else) that I might also see exactly what all the hoo-ha is about.

The build and design of the iPhone is typical of Apple in general - sleek, trendy and free of any unnecessary extras that would have ruined the designer's effort.

After experimenting with the much-hyped interface (or UI), I can say with a specific degree of conviction that the numerous positive remarks bestowed upon it are totally deserved. Apple has transformed fundamental user-interfaces the same way they changed the portable music gamer with the iPod back in 2001, and the speed of the UI will certainly shame numerous other makers and if it doesn't, it should. There's no lag, glitches or downturn on evidence, which is extremely commendable. Ideally this is a taste of tips to come.

After that undoubted highpoint, it's all downhill. The electronic camera efficiency is honestly for the price, highly disappointing in the existing cellphone market.Only 2MP and the lack of settings (flash, video or otherwise) is below average in the existing cameraphone market, and while the efficiency is fine the features utilized are far too drab to have any chance of registering amongst the huge kids of the market.

The messaging functions likewise leave a lot to be preferred. It's not possible to send a message to more than one recipient at a time due to some strange kink in the firmware and photo messaging has also been overlooked. Without these 2 options the iPhone is at risk of being out-of date in terms of features as soon as it has actually been launched. Definitely a fear for a business meant to be on the cutting edge.


The issue with the inability to send messages to multiple recipients does in fact now appear to have actually been dealt with thanks to an Apple firmware update, however it ought to have been in from the beginning though

As is truly anticipated, the music features are good. Utilizing Apple's brand-new 'Cover Circulation' music browser, it's a dream to work with and can not be faulted, easy as that. With Wi-fi integrateded, purchases can be made on iTunes whenever an appropriate connection is readily available, but the absence of 3G does halts its efficiency - another glaring omission.

In conclusion, Apple's iPhone is an above average device whose essential selling point is the remarkably easy interface, but the restrictions provided by the limited messaging and video camera features do spoil the 'experience' somewhat. Worse still is the acquiring limitations meaning that to obtain an iPhone, you need to sign up to an 18-month agreement, have a rigorous option of 2 tariffs (on only 1 network) and also have to fork out 269 for the phone itself.

As fantastic to make use of as the iPhone most certainly is, these restrictions mean that my decision to go somewhere else has been warranted. It's an excellent gadget, simply not quite the all-conquering multimedia experience that Apple would have us believe, however try one on your own and see if it seduces you as it has numerous others. Worth keeping an eye out for however will be the next iPhone that's launched as its sure to have provided Apple more time to modify the menus and add some more goodies.
