iphones do not have video recording capability. That's a serious disadvantage!
don't know what your talking about, mine has video recording.
yup. no touch screen will come close to the iphone. thanks to iphone's 200+ pantents, it will be impossible to create a touch screen that will rival the iphone
funny - Ford perfected building a car with the assembly line but no ford to this day is comparable to a Ferrari. It's a stupid analogy I know but just because someone invented something or came out with it first has no bearing on whether its the best.

the iphone sux. the wi fi network makes the net estra slow, it doesnt have camcorder, or live tv, the music downloads are super slow. whereas the samsung instinct, shown above, is smaller than the iphone, it takes pix and shoots vids, i swear to god that internet is faster on it than my at&t dsl, and it downlaods songs in like less than 30 sec, Trust me, its waaaay better than the iphone, not just in the phone itself, but the network itself. sprint truly does kix a$$ and made this a better phone than the iphone. ive already got to play with the instinct and its a pretty bad ass phone =D

The iphone sucks att sucks (gsm) and verizion sucks enough said.
whats good then?
To all Apple fanboys and girls Let's just see the phone before making any comments... maybe.. just maybe it will be as good as the ( **gasp** ) famed Iphone
You guys all know nothing will be as good as the iPhone until Steve Jobs says so...
iphone is not perfect. It lacks 3G, can not (legally) tether it to make it a modem to get online, have to hack it just so your third party apps can run. but in terms of touch screen tecnology, it is the king of all kings
I would not agree the touch screen is that good. My Touch from HTC has a much better touch screen than the iphone which multiple people playing with my phone have commented on.

First of all.. the voyager kicks the iphones ass.. touch screen wise.. no. But thats not all there is to it. The voyager has a keyboard, 3g actual tv, removable memory, and other stuff.. But this phone has tv, 3g, (rumored wimax).. but thats probably not gonna happen.. so shut up and give it a chance

I forgot....the phone mentioned above is the iphone or the samsung M800.....? I am so sick of every phone introduced being compared with the iphone!

its not an iphone no, but it hasnt been under development as long as the iphone has this is an awesome phone, im definitely getting one as soon as its released :)

the voyager is garbage. the os is crap its sluggish unintuative and ugly. Im not saying the iphone trounces all I have a mogul. but I was very unimpressed with the voyager
This phone is going to sell!!!! I'm glad my contract is ending in April!!!

EVERYONE SHOULD STOP BEING OBSESSED WITH THE IPHONE JUST BECAUSE ITS TRENDY. WHOEVER HOPPED ON THAT BANDWAGON WITH EVERYONE ELSE....ITS JUST LIKE WHEN ALL THE NORMAL KIDS IN YOUR TOWN EITHER WENT GOTHIC OR EMO, AND THOSE OF YOU THAT KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT....I HATE THOSE KIDS, THE IPHONE IS NOTHING SPECIAL. APPLE RULES IN THE COMPUTER LAND, I'LL GIVE THEM THAT, BUT PHONES....NAH. THEY HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. I JUST DONT THINK YOU WILL RULE THE MOBILE WORLD EVER....IF YOUR PHONE IS BASED ENTIRELY ON A TOUCH SCREEN, ITS NOT ALL ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY AND THE LOOK OF THE PHONE...SADLY FOR SOME OF US, QUALITY STILL MATTERS....
Dude who cares about the iphone, it is just plain stupid compared to the LG VOYAGER VX10000

LMAO Some guy posts "it's no iPhone" and the thread blows up. Think people why did an anonymous poster take the time to post that? I'll say he typed it to rile up the iPhone haters its so easy to do its comical. Anyway, this phone (if done right) will keep me with sprint another year or 2. My PPC 6700 is looking ancient now and all i want is a phone with GPS, a 3"+ screen, a real web browser, 3G and good battery life.

hardware-wise, it's a great phone, if anyone is gonna compete with the iPhone's hardware, here it is. the 3G is also gonna make mobile web a much more enjoyable feature, especially since sprint's coverage is massive. however, bring back the croix UI! as an A900 user, i'm all for samsung using interfaces that it designs, or in croix's case, UIs that it co-designs with adobe. sprint doesnt force you to use their standard interface, which is good because their standard interface is nothing special, my A900 came out before sprint MIUI and im happy about that. but i seriously want to see 2 interface changes, then i'll pick this up the second my contract is done: put the back button in the middle, instead of on the left, and BRING BACK THE ADOBE UI!

It's a CDMA phone... that alone will keep me from buying it. If it's not GSM, it's just a toy.

This will be a EVDO REV_A phone. You can keep your molassas I-Phone. I don't wanna wait 15 minutes for cnn.com to load. This will probably be a lot less taxing on my wallet also. It will be a touch screen phone that doesn't require a second mortgage to buy.

GSM sucks. About 1% if that needs a GSM outside the U.S. and it's crap with 1 on 1 with CDMA/Data. I'm sure the GSM fanbabies still drive Pintos.

HEY FOLKs, I think this phone will be good as long as the SPRINT itself tries to promote it as iPhone or any other phones. Have you guys noticed the famous phones out there, it depends on the promotions they made on TV radio, internet, etc., etc., So I have to wait for the response from SPRINT.... and then I'll comment more on this phone. Otherwise, you guys keep it down low.. LOLZ
i site for the Samsung M800 and all i see is att iphone. christ go on a pro att site. iphone is really nice. and a realy great wayto waste your money. its one thing that most people on the road are trying to make call's. now there making calls and playing music. yea more death thanks to apple. HTC touch is a great phone and im waiting for Samsung M800 before i make my choice. both good nice but im having a really getting use to all touch.
If the IPHONE is so bad ! Why do people complain it's to pricy then wait in line for 18+ hours to get one .Then it sells out in all stores in record time. WOW Just wait till IPHONE ver 2 ver3 ver4 And it's Apples first try at making a phone WOW who can compete ? NO ONE!! but they try and try

The olny problem with the IPHONE is it opperates on the at&t network. If you need a data PDA, see Money Magazine Febuary issue. The touch beat both the IPHONE and Voyager. The Voyager cost is high and performance is poor.
