Thread: Switch to iPhone3Gs or stay with pocket PC?

  1. #1

    Default Switch to iPhone3Gs or stay with pocket PC?

    Hey people, just want to gather some feedback from those that are using the iPhone. How is the experience? Are there any frustration you encounter with the iPhone?

    I am currently using the Sony X1. Overall the phone was alright, except that it is not as smooth as I wanted it to be (speed). Function wise, it has everything that I asked for. I am just not happy with the respond time of the Sony X1.

    So if I can trade in the Sony X1 for $300 and buy a iPhone 32GB for $600 is it worth it?
    From reviews, it seems like the iPhone call quality is not as good as it should be.

    Offer me your comments

    Do you use the 3G web surfing a lot? I do, so for me the X1 is much better. The iPhone 3Gs would just burn up.

    Wow....that is a new insight. the 3Gs has over heating problems? Okay I actually thought that the iPhone would be better for surfing. I know the X1 have higher res, but my iPhone mates keep boasting about how fast their iPhone3G was....

    Yes. Even Stereo Bluetooth is now "new" to the 3Gs. As is Data Tethering. Welcome to 2001, apple!

    Apparently the overheating issues reported might be due to people using 3rd party cases on their phones...

    No, that's the discoloration. The overheating one is known and there's a marketing spin on it by apple already... saying not to use the phone in environments higher than 35C, etc...

    Go and try out the iphone, or borrow a friends to test it out.

    Another thing is battery life. Battery life isn't supposed to be any better on new 3Gs so if you are a heavy internet/wifi user, be prepared to charge often.

    Wow looks I like I have to hands off the iPhone first, cos my X1 can listen to 3-4hrs music on blue tooth headphones non stop surf the net like 2-3hrs and make 10-20 calls a day and still have 20-30% batt left at night by the time I hit the bed.

    If I don't use the X1 often, batt can last 3-4 days without recharge with average of 20 calls of 15min each a day.

    it means that buying an iPhone 3GS now can burn your pocket figuratively and literally
