Until now, a lot of people are still craving for one of the hottest gadgets in the market – the iPhone. Customers are still queuing for many hours just to get an iPhone. However, there are still iPhone complaints despite its stylish and sleek appearance.
iPhone owners are often dismayed by the gadget’s hardware and software features. True enough, the iPhones are most-loved by many people all over the world because of its high resolution and sleek touch screen. Its exceptionally slim design attracts many people from different age groups. When it comes to the price, some individuals are also discouraged to purchase it since the iPhone features are also available in other phones which are much cheaper.
A very common iPhone complaint has something to do with the connections. Oftentimes, brand new iPhones can’t be used by the owners because of jammed network connections. Others complain about iTunes communication failure; after several days, the iPhone can be activated but some customers feel frustrated with the gadget’s software and hardware limitations.
When it comes to the iPhone hardware, here are the complaints:
– it only has a 2 mega pixel camera while other cheaper phones offer 5 mega pixels camera – iPhone headphone jacks are specially designed for the gadget and you can’t just use any other headphone, even if its of better quality
– There are also those who complain that the iPhone screen scratches easily and further scratches are caused by the sleeves and cases
– iPhone batteries are not removable. If you want to replace it, you still need to send it to the Apple Store and you have to pay $69 for it. It would take about three days before you get the replacement. Carrying batteries with you all the time is of no good
– People with larger fingers will find it hard to use the iPhone because of its touch screen. If you want to send or open files through Bluetooth, you can’t do it with the iPhone.
Aside from the hardware complaints, there are also iPHone software complaints. For example, voice dialing through the iPhone is not possible; there are only 25 tunes that you can use as a ringtone and it is also not possible to get iTunes music and use it as a ring tone; customers who send files or blogs by email will not be able to cut/paste text through iPhone; MS Office documents can only be displayed on the iPhone and you can’t edit or create new ones; despite the gadgets’ high -resolution screen, the web browser lacks Flash support and this means that some multimedia rich sites will not open.
A lot of people are already aware of the iPhone complaints but since owning an iPhone is like a trend, sales of the gadget continue to increase year after year. iPhone has incredible features but that doesn’t change the fact that many customers encounter problems when using the fashionable gadget.
If you’re not that conscious about following the latest fashion trends, then perhaps you can invest in other more affordable gadgets like the iPod and some phones that offer the same or even better features. Just make sure that the item you choose meets your lifestyle and suits your needs.
Investing in an iPhone is good especially if you’re always on the go and you love listening to music. So, are you still going to purchase the fashionable gadget despite the many customer complaints? Well, it’s up to you.
