I really am tired of reading phone reviews when 99% of the time the reviewer goes on and on about how the phone is not an iPhone.
Here is a clue for you morons, it isn’t!
Got a new phone, review it for what it is or compare it to it’s predecessor.
This frakking love affair with the iPhone and the constant need to prove it is the holy grail is sadly bringing down the quality of all reviews.
Unless the phone maker has proclaimed “I have the iPhone Killer, let us rejoice” how about giving us the real deal.
Now before anyone says I’m a hater, let me tell you I own an iPhone 3G S.
Am I impressed? Yes, it is a great pocket PC (PC means Personal Computer not a Windows product) but as a phone lets say Nokia will not loose me as a LOYAL customer.
So the new phone does not work like an iPhone, get over it! The GUI has to be different or else there would be law suits flying back n forth.
Is it laggy not as responsive, dduh different equipment, different OS.
Seriously people even the iPhone has flaws, yes it does you Apple apologists!
So back to the point, the iPhone is NOT intuitive. It just seems so after hours of repetitive use. It’s called muscle memory. This bitching that this new phone or that new phone doesn’t work like an iPhone, is dumb because it is a ‘insert other brand here’!
Apple is known for it excellent UI while others have not. How about suggesting that other manufacturers take lesson or two on design and ergonomics.
My mom who is regularly on the PC and uses her Nokia N82 with ease could not ‘intuitively’ use the iPhone until I showed her.
My sister who is even less IT savvy has an iPhone and barely uses all the functions with ease.
Ok Trolls I heard that, and since I know how smart my mom and sister are your words are meaningless.
Anyhoo, touch interface is really a field that needs engineers & UI developers to buck up and copyright/trademark/intellectual property motherfrakkers to quit making life difficult for the rest of us.
So all you Technology pundits and bloggers with whom everyone else is in love with and follow mindlessly do us a favour. If you cannot be objective when you do a review, don’t write one.
And enough with the frakkin eyeball grabbing headlines, I’m sick and tired of reading a headline to be thoroughly disappointed with the article.
