My mate has both and the iphone is just sooo far ahead in terms of usability, he also put the phones side by side with camera on and yes the viewtys was more defined although the iphones look better due to the size of the screen.

Iphone isn't all about features, so it's obvious that the Viewty is far better.

Personally I wouldn't have one, it's OK but I couldn't live with one for 18 months. Touch screen phones aren't too practical, the novelty wears off too soon

Camera is excellent though, as is the video capture.

They're 270 on pay & go so some kind of figure around that

Like i said my mate has both and the viewty imo is not better. It just feels cheap to hold and feels like its trying to do what the iphone does in terms of the user interface, but dosnt quite cut it.

Have you had either? As for the camera, as has already been discussed, mega pixels is useless, its the quality of the lense, and the iphone looks better side by side. I sure if you transfered the images to a computer and made them larger the viewty would not distort as much but actually on the phone theres no comparison.

But thats just it, the iphone is not good for all of the features it has becasue lets face it it dosnt have many, its all about how slick it is to use and intergrate into your everyday lifestyle. If the viewty had a 2mp camera with no flash and video playback similar to the iphone it would just be disregarded, where the iphone is still succeeding.

Ive had a camera phone for 2years and only used it once or twice, whereas i use the internet everyday.

Try performing easy to use normal mobile functions like sending an mms or doing voice dialing!

if you are paying 270 for a device on a poor contract just because the menu is easy to use, either you rich or just plain stupid imo.

as for internet, its nothing new, im writing this from my nokia n80 Which is 18months old btw

No i mean that i use the internet all the time but not on my phone so therefore it would be very convenient. Also, the phone would be on PAYG on orange, not the O2 contract.

I use the internet everyday and there by having a phone that can browse as easily as the iphone it would be very convenient.

N95 has the best browser I've used, better than the iphone I think as the touch screen isn't practical

Because you cant carry a laptop around in your pocket and answer calls on it. If were going to be really honest i dont think any other phones avaliable at the moment are as aesthetically pleasing as the iphone is and image is a big thing in todays soceity.

Exactly the reason iPods sold so well, even though there were 'more capable' products on the market.
