Is The iPhone Worth The Money?

Aug 18, 2007
The recent release of the Apple iPhone has caused a lot of buzz. The phone for many is a must have for its ease of use, great features and the iPhone is also a very cool status symbol. But at $600 is it worth the price?

The iPhone has some amazing features. Starting with its operating system OS X. This operating system is familiar to anyone who has used a Mac. The OS X is simple, clean and easy to use. In this hand held device it is very similar to that of a desktop system. You can easily access your widgets, Safari, text messaging, notes, calendar, email and every other feature that you are accustomed to with the desktop version.

The built in sensors on the iPhone's touch screen is very unique and fun. The sensors make it easy to zoom in or out with just a pinch of two fingers. It is also easy to scroll through photos or other files by swiping your finger tip in which ever direction you want to scroll. This feature is fun, easy and very practical. The sleek design and sensor navigation makes this phone unparalleled.

The iPhone comes with its own built in 2.0 mega pixel camera. While this may seem like it is low pixel, the phone actually takes very good photos and images. It is also very easy to exchange photos to or from your Mac. You can also easily add photos to your address book so that when you get a phone call the image of the caller will appear.

Making a phone call has never been easier on a cell phone. To make a call, all you have to do is touch a name or a phone number. While the call part might seem like a basic feature, the iPhone has found a way to make it easy and practical.

The iPhones Internet feature is also great. The phone comes with a very advanced web browser which allows you to synch bookmarks from your home computer. Safari also has a built in search with Google and Yahoo. The iPhone is great for multitasking as it allows you to browse the web while you are downloading files.

One of the most fun features of the iPhone is that you can so easily access youtube. How great is it to be able to watch youtube videos to pass the time while waiting on a train or an appointment. The sliding touch screen allows you to easily scan for videos and the resolution and sound are surprisingly good.

You don't have to worry about getting lost if you have your iPhone on you. With the iPhone you can quickly go to Google maps for directions at your fingertips.

There are many other great features to the iPhone, but probably the biggest complaint is that you can only use the phone with ATT. This means that if you already have a phone contract with another cell phone service, you will have to either continue your payments with the old service provider in vain or pay the hefty contract canalization fee.

While the iPhone may be expensive and you may have to pay to cancel your old cell phone contract, I feel the phone is worth buying. The phone is fun, practical, easy to use and very cool. I don't think you will be disappointed.
