      Don't buy Apple iPhone 4: Consumer Reports

      Loss of connection issue in Applie iPhone 4; the company has been sued by iPhone customers.

      The report was the latest blow to the iPhone 4, which sold 1.7 million units in its first three days on the market but has been plagued by complaints of poor reception. Many of the complaints involve a wraparound antenna whose signal strength is said to be affected if touched in a certain way.

      Yeah. Read about this. I think we should always wait and watch before buying any new product.

      I love iPhone. But...

      Main disadvantages:
      Hardware design is prone to reception issues
      MicroSIM card support only
      No Flash support in the web browser
      No true multitasking for all applications
      FaceTime video calls work only over Wi-Fi
      No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode
      No hardware shutter key for the camera
      No FM radio
      No stereo speakers
      No microSD card slot
      No smart dialing
      Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content
      Poor loudspeaker performance

      In short, it is a "love it or hate it" stuff.

      Hardware design is prone to reception issues - only the 4g
      MicroSIM card support only - nopes, it supports both the sims, cut ur existing sim to the size of a micro sim and it runs, there are sim cutters also available in the market.
      No Flash support in the web browser - jailbroken will run flash, the jailbroken ipad's are already running flash so will the iphone 4g.
      No true multitasking for all applications - agreed
      FaceTime video calls work only over Wi-Fi - will be hacked or updated by apple pretty soon.
      No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode - will be done once jailbroken.
      No hardware shutter key for the camera
      No FM radio - a problem
      No stereo speakers - apple's wish
      No microSD card slot - 16gb is enough is guess, and microsd card access will be slow
      No smart dialing - can be added once jailbroken
      Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content - point!
      Poor loudspeaker performance

      In short, it is a "love it or hate it" stuff.
      please find my replies inline, once u jailbreak ur iphone the disadvantages can be taken care of...

      am not supporting the iPhone, even i find android better ...

      Why should you have to jailbreak an iPhone? Isnt it easier to get an Android phone that actually allows you to do all that?
      For that matter, if that was the list of requirements, why consider an iPhone at all? It is not cheap!
