Social Networking and integration...

by JeffdaBeat    Jun 25, 2010, 4:30 PM

Although I definitely see where you're coming from about apps being able to integrate with the OS, in some ways, I'm really glad Apple doesn't let it happen. I remember carrying a Windows Mobile phone, which was pretty customizable for the most part, but a lot of times when those intergrations were made, it hurt the performance of the phone in a big way.

I can see why Apple doesn't want Apps to come close to hurting performance. Apple doesn't want to be blamed for a program messing up their phone...because on the consumer side, it won't be, "Awe man, that App made my phone run slow" it will be, "My phone runs slow."

And to be honest, I'm also glad those apps don't come preinstalled. One of my biggest problems with smartphones is giving me programs and applications that I simply don't need and never really asked for. Apple lets me make that decision of whether or not I want a specific app...

But other than that, I agree with your review. I like the feel of the phone, but very uncomfortable with it being made of glass. Everything else is amazing in my book.
