Do You Think Iphones Are Really the Best Cell Phones?

I personally don't have a Smartphone and think it would be hard to enjoy them as far as internet use is concerned. Sending emails would be pretty useful with them though. Iphones seem to be the hottest cellphones out right now. Do you think that and what makes them better in your view?

It depends on. I know some people will think that Iphone is the best cellphone, but I personally like Windows mobile phone much more. The biggest shortcoming of Iphone is that it can not replace the battery if it runs out the power. This is so inconvenient for me. As I use the cellphone a lot and it is too bad that I can not replace to another battery if its battery is out of power. I have to charge it only, but you know sometimes when you are outside, it's not easy for you to charge your cellphone. I love China

choosing what is best mobile phone depends on your personality and lifestyle, what do i mean by this? are you more of a talker or a texter for instance? by texter, i mean would you wish to use your mobile phone like the "old" pager wherein you would rather leave messages than having perfunctory coversation? if so, then i would certainly recommend a 4-6 linear mobile phone where you can leave text or SMS such as reminders for kids, husband and officemates, and yes, this is also for those who would prefer to send personal messages like, "i just want you to know that i thought about you today" or "i am sorry, i was wron" without having to say so, mobile phone with 4-5 liners are also good when you intend to send email messages via your mobile phone, this is usually possible now almost all mobile phones, and probably in all of the latest GSM types...if you are more of a talker however, a mobile phone that would fit your personality would be more of the pratical "user-friendly" types, with maybe about 1-3 liner and ready pro-format test message such as "yes" or "i will call you back", you are talker if you if still think that a mobile phone is for receiving and making important phone calls more than 80 percent of the time, you are also more of a talker if you have mindset that "a phone is phone" and you aren't toy with the idea of buying a mobile phone so that you can also use it for email, chat, messaging or downloading from internet, most talker consider themselves, pragmatic buyers

I don't have iPhones, or any smartphones for that matter. The reason being that I don't see myself using the full features and therefore don't see the need to shell out extra money. I have my laptop and PCs for everything and I only use cell phones for making and receiving calls, and sometimes to listen to music when I am driving alone. I have two friends who swears that iPhone changed their lives, but then they use emails, internet,etc on their phones already. They said I should get the iPhone if I am going to buy a smartphone. Personally, I don't see myself browsing on the internet from smartphones, be it iPhone or any other one. The screens are too small for me. I know you can zoom in and see it bigger, but that means you have to scroll back and forth or up and down all the time. I don't know if I'll ever buy it, but if I were to buy a smartphones, I am going for iPhone from my friends' recommendation.

i figure the zooming in and out would waste an additional 25%. also i'm just hearing now the new iphone which is called the iphone 4 is being shown on tv. i figure theres enough smart phones already but than again i'm not a smart phone user.

i dont own a iphone but i guess thats the leading cell phone device which you can use for all purpose and enjoy its features completely. It has to be noted that iphone is quite costly comparing to other mobile devices

No, first versions of Iphone was very bad - no multitasking, poor camera, not so many software for them. In other versions things are changed, tons of software are available. Iphone is make it`s popularity with first phone with capacitivity touchscreen, but today every second touch phone is with that type of screen. I love Windows Mobile phones. So many software for them, many new models and more and more.... Android phones is popular in our days, but i don`t tested models with Android to tell my feelings for them.

I don't have an iphone, but they sure do seem quite popular, and I don't understand it, as there are other phones out there that I think would be better than the iphone. I don't have a droid either, but I think the Motorola Droid would be better than the iphone. My daughter has an android phone, and she really likes it, but here is an htc phone. Me, I have the SAmsuyng Omnia 2, and I really like it, as itr can do everything an iphone can do. Sure the screen is smaller than a computer, but I do use it for the internet from time to time. I really do enjoy my phone a lot, but to say it is the best, it might be the best for me, but others might feel differently. I think, it really all depends on what you want to do with the phone in the first place. If you want or need or don't need a lot of features, then just get a simple phone. Only you know what is best for you, and what you want on it. Take care, and happy mylotting.

all i got right now is a virgin mobile basic phone. i figure i would look into those smartphones that can be plugged into a laptop for a wireless connection so i can at least get an introduction to the smartphone.
