iPhone.... The only phone I have ever had, that MUST be connected to the internet through Apple iTunes BEFORE you can use it.
Reason for getting the phone... I had no internet or phone on where I was. I told this to the seller, it was extremely difficult to get the phone... "Activated" so I could use it. Very frustrating, they assume everyone has iTunes. How conceited are Apple??!!
After much fuss and bother and quite a few expletives!!! I finally got it activated. Since then, and after upgrading the IOS operating system, it has been OK. Battery life is indeed an issue, I had a Samsung Galaxy before this phone and battery life was about twice what this one is. Using the phone the same amount, as well as email and facebook, the iPhone fails in the power/demand ratio department significantly.
Other then having to stick the phone on to charge twice as often, I have found the phone to be easy to use and reliable.
Not as flash as the iPhone 5, or as quick. But for the price, it does everything I need it to do. Just wish the battery was better and able to be replaced as easy as other phones.
I've bought two, despite the fact that the battery life is an issue. I have all apple products here so I just make sure all are charging when not away from home. I am about to buy another and perhaps a fourth at a later date. My granddaughters are thrilled that we can stay in touch with each other and their Granny and can play games, use the camera and video, play music and stories. The phone is always with us and frankly, with iOS upgrades, there are no worries about compatibility and syncing with our home and on-the-move communication equipment. One more granddaughter to join the circle right now and two more in a few years time.
The iphone, one of the worlds most popular multitool gadget, enough said really... however there are certain disappointing but inevitable factors that hamper the iphones overall performance.
I love the features and all they make life much more convenient like when your on the train or bus you can still browse the internet, play a game or listen to your favourite tracks, you can always download and install apps that the default menu lacks free of charge *most of the time. The interface is brilliant compared to any other smartphone or touch screen, sensitive but intelligent just the way i like it :P .
Unfortunately, the battery life is appaling when used for using high performance applications such as games or watching videos but thats completely normal as the iphone was not designed solely as a computer so don't buy it if that's your only motive. As a normal phone however the battry life is like any other phone but you wouldn't be dishing out an extra $100-$200 for an ordinary phone would you which is rather ironic... but who am i to critisise.
I would recommend this product to those who either are enthusiastic about all this *new tech* and aren't afraid to spend a little extra and for those whom like streaming videos and playing games and aren't annoyed by the fact that you'll have to charge the phone every night.
I phone with 1OS 5 make sure before purchase its tested and set to factory setting by the seller.
The phone is awesome. Plenty of space for 32G. Much faster than 3G and its very easy to use and battery life is not bad providing you keep all data roaming, Wifi, in check. As that can chew your battery pretty quick. Good value for money! Best Smart phones in the market to get in to Iphones if you are keen to get in to I products.
This compares to Galaxy S on the samsung. I love I phone for the versatility and love I products cannot beat the style and intricate details they go in to and always updating.
Battery can be a bit of a bummer and the camera is pretty poor but still takes good video and photographs
Have owned the phone a few weeks. I can type but find the keyboard difficult and easy to make mistakes. My wife has one and loves it so maybe it is just me. Went back to my old phone and when the voice recognition software improves will have another go.As a tool for news etc on the go is brilliant and found the phone itself to work well.
Ebay is a great place to buy an iPhone because the site offers second hand goods in perfect working order at a cheaper price than brand new and sometimes they are unlocked allowing you to put any sim card in them.
The genuine iPhone allows you to purchase apps only avalible on the Apple iPhone such as Tower Defense, eventually this game may arrive on the android market. There is a difference in quality to the generic/fake iPhone, the fakes with dual sim cards fail and ARE NOT user friendly, (i know beacuse I bought one and had to get a refund!) The iPhone is Highly reccomended!!! Dont waste your time with other brands of phones or fakes!
The reason I bought this phone was for work screen size enables you to read your emails alot easier its an easy phone to use and is very quick to respond the one problem with it is if you are using it like I do for emails and photos and sending them onto another party then the battery life is short yes I would buy this phone again but will probably be looking for something to extend the battery life not always near power you see
i bought this product because i have never owned an iphone
i like the phone everything worked on the only thing i had to download and install the latest software before i could use it.
Love the phone, it is a shame that it did not come with a battery charger which the previous owner should have stated when he was selling the item on ebay. Again very happy with the phone. I use to use Nokia phones but from now on Iphone. The phone is user friendly, I Love it.
phone is great. The only disappointment with the iphone is that the battery life isnt as good as my old nokia. However the battery gets through a couple of days of heavy use so is enough to get out of trouble
