To some, the iPhone is but a fantastic device. But there is no such thing as a perfect phone, not even the iPhone. Well, what may seem perfect to Apple and its designers may not be perfect to some of its users. People have different preferences and different people have different uses for it too. And thus issues about iPhone complaints come about.
A Summary of iPhone Complaints
The touch feature may seem very nice and quite cool but there are a few complaints about this. Many iPhone users use text messages quite heavily. And their complaint is that they commit many mistakes in typing text messages. Their fingers are too big that they would usually hit the wrong buttons instead. They are just used to the regular cell phone keyboards. So it would take them longer to send text messages.
Also in texting, you would tend to abbreviate words most of the time. But with the auto spell checker, you cannot do that. If you abbreviate words, the wrong words would come out instead. This is a bit of inconvenient to the people who are so used to this way of texting.
You cannot use a stylus on an iPhone that is why you would again tend to point on the wrong letters and even links. During web surfing, you might want to go to a link but these items are small and so it’s harder to hit. It takes more time to go to where you want to go. And hitting wrong items most of the time can just be frustrating.
The iPhone uses Safari as a browser. One common iPod complaint is that Safari doesn’t have an auto fill on the search field. This would have been a useful feature especially that many iPhone owners have a bit of a hard time typing.
You cannot receive calls when you are transferring data on iPhone. Many users want to be able to receive calls at the same time so they can be reached at all times. It would be to your disadvantage if you can’t. In a fast paced world we live in, you really have to use both at the same time sometimes.
If you need to edit an outgoing email address, you have to type everything in again. Again, time is such an important thing in this age. People want to do it fast and the most convenient way.
Since you navigate your iPhone through the touch screen, it’s inevitable that your screen will get dirt on it. But even though it has been engineered to in such a special way, you cannot just use any ordinary cloth to wipe the dirt off. Well, not everybody would be willing to carry one more accessory no matter how small it is.
There were also some complaints about the iPhone’s built camera. For such an advanced phone, its camera doesn’t even have a zoom. If you want to take better pictures, this camera would be a disappointment.
Are these iPhone Complaints Valid?
Well, every single iPhone complaint is valid. But it may only be valid to the complainant. Again, different people have different preferences. While others may mock your complaints, they are as real to you when you are the one at an inconvenience.
