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!!!

    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.
