Reviews of Globe iPhone 3G in the Philippines

Globe just launched the iPhone 3G yesterday and hundreds of Filipinos have already got their hands on one.

Here are some of the feedbacks/review: { via philmug }

well installing apps via appstore are damn slow. forget about it. the dimensions are very sexy. very slim and easy to hold. i never regret buying the white iphone. And of-coarse the NTC logo is printed at the back. Nice too.

initial reaction to the 3g iphone is that there’s an improvement in the “feel” of the phone, sturdier and better grip for me. I was surprised that the plastic doesn’t feel cheap at all. However, sms and opening of apps seems slower than my 1st gen. I’m not sure if it’s the 2.0 firmware. I hope speed will improve when I upgrade to 2.0.2

I’ve had mine for only about an hour; my first impression is, it feels better in the hand than the old one–slightly wider but lighter, and the plastic is warmer to the touch (aside from supposedly improving the antenna radically). nice piece of work.

My GPS is perfect! It pinpointed me at the exact spot I was (under a gas station), and when my car moved, the blue dot was following me! Use Satellite view though, map view is useless because Google doesn’t have any accurate street maps in the Philippines. QUALIFIER – This is GPS – it works well if you’re outside and under view of a satellite – don’t expect it to work indoors!!!

    pangbingwit na naman yan ng pera. naghihirap kumita ang mga tao pero makakabili naman ng mga mamahaling bagay. asuss!

  • rta

    yup tama ka dyan. for the affluent only. lets be practical with today’s soaring prices. and besides not all of its features can be appreciated or applicable in the philippines setting. and besides, the touch screen feature is very sensitive and prone to unwanted bumps which might damage the user interface considering users of celfones here. mas okay pa rin cguro yung mga keypad phones. tapos globe is not yet ready to fully exploit the features of the iphone. yung 3g feature ba ng globe namamaximize kasi i cant use my 3g feature video calling using globe sa nseries phones.

    iPhone is immensely popular around the world and i’m not surprised it even had a sold-out status once in the UK. I wonder why many people are craving for the iPhone. It’s just a cellular phone for christ’s sake. Just that it’s made by Apple Inc.

  • kamuning

    iPhone kayo dyan…madali namang masira yan!
    itapon na yan!

  • Leo

    maraming apps ang hndi pwde sa pinas like google maps, itunes store at hindi m maviview mga sites like sa pc kasi walang flash at java, and sa youtube limited lang mga video kasi hindi lahat ng video sa youtube encoded for iphone around 10,000 lang yata. why buy this crap?kuntento nako sa ipod at nokia cp ko!

  • Leo

  • xwing

    @leo
    nokia And ipod has no match for Sony ericsson and PSP tandem…hahaha

  • polnud

    yes its just a cellular phone made by apple and mas mdami pang features ang nokia and SE phones, pero ang dating kasi ng iphone status symbol ibig sabihin pag naka iphone ka may pera ka dahil kaya mo bumili just like the 8850 and 8890 dati, parang ang sarap ibandera ng iphone hehe..hey look at my iphone, ako im planning to buy pero nagdadalwang isip pa ko kung yung samsung FXX ang kukunin ko tsaka baka maglabas ang nokia ng panlaban sa iphone,:)

  • bernard

    hmmmm… pasali po. ako may iphone 3G ok lang kung pangit 3G ng globe pwede naman kasi siya sa wifi access e, kung may wireless router ka sa bahay kahit di kana gumamit ng PC pwede maginternet sa iphone para ka din gumagamit ng PC, saka syempre kung bibili ka ng mahal na gamit dapat magagamit mo talaga investment yun, in may part system technician ako i need to check the wireless network sa company kaya ko maicipan bumili ng iphone para magamit sa work ko saka sayang din installment na promo ng globe.

    Paano di to ma-afford ng Pilipino e tipong lugaw pero bentang starbucks. KUUU ke mura mura sa US pero pagdating dito minahalan ng globe para tumubo. E tumubo ba naman sila e hindi nga kumita sila dito dahil sa kaswapangan nila.

  • pokyaw

    Wag nyong ipatronize ang isang bagay na alam nyo naman niloloko kayo sa presyohan

  • Koele

    wow…super mahal…e US mura lang siya pag locked with AT&T…sus pati phone grabe ang kurakot talaga…anyways at least for those who can afford…the status symbol will be there…pilipinas talaga…

  • JM@CC

    di naman ang iPhone ang may pinakamahal na price ng smartphones. . . e yun nga SE X1 almost ka-presyo ng iPhone. di ko rin masasabi na status symbol yun iPhone. meron lang talaga mga tao na techie and i think affordable naman ang iPhone ng Globe and Globe even offers 0% interest payable up to 12 months. what a great deal di ba?

    i got my 3GS from Globe nun Monday. di ako nagsisisi na bumili ako. ang ganda nya at ang dali pa gamitin. and yes, you can use 3G, EDGE, GPS, WiFi to browse. yun iPhone para syang tablet size ng PC kaya ok na ok sya para sa akin.

    i guess mahal ang benta ng Globe kasi di ba aware naman kayo na napakataas ng taxes dito sa Pinas. sisihin ninyo ang gobyerno, wag ang mga telcos. pati nga text msgs di ba balak patawan ng tax? dito kasi sa pinas lahat gusto patawan ng napakataas na tax unlike sa ibang bansa napakaliit ng tax.

  • JM@CC

    yun vertu na cellphone nakita ko sa glorietta, nagkaka-halaga sya ng 383K. hanep! hahaha pero sa totoo lang, di ko trip yun itsura nun vertu. ano kaya meron dun? hmm, siguro pure titanium yun at puro ginto ang nasa loob kaya uber mahal? hehehe

  • iphone adict

    hey pede ba malaman ang presyo sa plan ng globe para sa iphone 3g or 3gs? nagbabalak kasi akong bumili and wala pa akong idea kung magkano ang aabutin..

    thanks
