Nokia E72 VS iPhone 3GS. Who Will Win?

A lot of us actually thing that iPhone is the best phone in this world. Really? All those Apple purists will be happily nodding their head right now. IMHO iPhone is just another normal phone with too hype thrown into it, thanks to the brilliant marketing done by Jobs. The recent flaws of iPhone 4 showed that iPhone is just like a any other phone (or worse). No disrespect but iPhone reputation has certainly exceeds what it really can offer. iPhone has been dramatically exaggerated to be a must have phone. There are a plethora of other smartphones which can easily beat iPhone.

iPhone 3GS Sucks
I'm sorry to tell you these Apple fans...

So do you still think that iPhone must be in your Christmas Wish List? It will not be in mine. I don't know. I just feel that it is way too expensive and not pragmatic enough for me. So today I decided to share with you guys a comparison between the Nokia E72 that I use with an iPhone. But since iPhone 4 is flawed and will not land in our shores anytime soon, I am going to pit Nokia E72 against iPhone 3GS! So here's a comparison taken from

Moment of truth: Nokia E72 VS iPhone 3GS. Who do you think will win? You certainly think that iPhone should win...without even lifting a finger right? So let's see.

So what do you think after browsing through the whole list? Still think that iPhone 3GS is the best? I don't think so. Nokia E72's battery can last longer than iPhone and its camera is miles ahead of what the Apple can provide. I would rather use that money to buy other more worthy phones. The only thing that makes iPhone "alive" is its Applications. But tell me how many of the apps are actually useless? Moreover Nokia is also catching up with their Ovi apps. Then again...let's see if iPhone4 will be different. So Nokia E72 VS iPhone 3GS. Who won? Of course Nokia E72!
