iPhone killer: Can the Tocco take down the Apple? First up in the battle royale of phones is the Samsung Tocco. Touchy, tiny and with a slightly pretentious name, on paper it could take the 3Gesus phone down to Chinatown.
Samsung wins! Samsung are the world leader in consumer electronics! Along with LG, Samsung continue to provide consumers with quality products at affordable prices. This has been so for the last 6 years, Japanese companies are not even in competition, with inferior products at extortionate prices. Also, Apples entire consumer base are trendy yuppies with far too much money.
LOL Are you Zhuk's brother or some relative from korea? Sound just like him.
the only death here is going to be for samsung..... apple offers too much in terms of integration and whatnot
That and samsung doesnt have a userbase like apple does because apple has been around for years and have plenty of fans behind them in terms of product, samsung to me is much rather known for their TV's and or Hard drives and not much for their phones.
The Iphone 3G really is the best phone i have ever owned. Its easy to use, and i really do recomend it to everyone, especially for those in the UK since you can get a far better deal here, than the US is getting
In my opinion.. both iphone and Samsung can't compee nokia... I owned nokia N82 and it's much good & better
Obviously someone who is jealous that the Xbox 360 is superior thanks to its better games, graphics and online etc. Anyways dont compare the Tocco its complete garbage, you all need to check out the new Samsung Omnia (i900)
Ever since iPhone came on the scene, even though touchscreen phones existed before the iPhone, companies have bombarded the market with socalled iPhone killers. But what these companies and people are failing to realize is that the iPhone should not be categorized as just a phone, but as a mini computer. Now ask yourself, why does PC dominate over Mac in terms of sales and appeal??? It's because of software, and ever since the app store launched, that opened the door to unlimited opportunities for the iPhone and people that own one. I write this while I am listening to Aol internet radio, one of the FREE apps I downloaded onto my iPhone. Now you Nokia and Samsung advocates know this: it is not just about hardware. You can come out with a much better phone than the iPhone in terms of hardware features, but just as with PC vs. Mac, 360 vs. PS3, iPhone vs. the world, it is going to take software, and the platform for devs to be able to freely develop applications for ANY of these other phones out there trying to compete with the iPhone to really compete at all. Even in Steve Jobs keynote address when he first introduced the iPhone, he acknowledged that the iPhone and what it could do required more than just hardware, it required strong partnerships with other companies to make the iPhone what it is. Bottomline, besides the iPhone living up mostly to all the hype (still no flash, stereo bluetooth) no other phone has a prayer of stacking up against the iPhone unless it offers a dev kit and an app store where free and paid apps are available, and even then you gotta have devs interested in your hardware to even get a small fraction of the apps already available on iPhone's app store. P.S. How many touchscreen phones does this make that Samsung is trying come out with to battle the iPHone???
First off I dont see why they have to keep throwing phones at the iphone, if you want to fight hard you have to have the sales to do it, cause without that then the popularity of that phone wont keep up and thus the iphone will remain on top, samsung should just let the instinct live long enough to see if it can at least do iphone sales instead of throwing another touch phone at it. I looked at the samsung instinct forums by the way and its not looking to hot, some guy says why have glass when plastic is better, well if you've see the iphone stress test you would see the iphone is pretty well built and the glass makes the phone screen quality look bright and beautiful vs something that looks cheap and can easily be scratched without even a try.
That the instinct had a plastic screen? Dang...thats cheap... I am glad I ordered up an Iphone 3G 16 black at ATT last week.. This is gonna be my first apple device to own...
Ya its one of those cheap plastic screens that if you run a simple finger nail over it by accident then you will see the scratch, and to me things like that are annoying and the Iphone screen have been through plenty of screen test to prove even though its glass apple have made the screen nearly scratch proof kinda like what the PSP has with the special coding they add to the screen.
if you are smart you buy screen protector when you got it. that is the first thing you should do.. simple solution...
I got a protecter for my iphone regardless,but the fact of the matter is that plastic film thats over the instinct still looks ugly.
