The Youth of London handle the iPhone

I’m sure you all know SMS Text News Youth Correspondent Isaah. He’s done a few things for us on how the youth of the nation view phones, providers and the mobile industry in general. This time we put an iPhone in his hand as a follow up to his youth opinion piece he did late last year. We wanted to see what London’s youth thought of it when they could actually hold one in their hand. The results follow…

Mahammed Abdillahi, 15: “Brilliant phone. 10/10.”

Dillan Campbell, 15: “That phone is sexy.”

Wahidur Rahman, 15: “It’s a crap phone just to show off with. It’s just not good. The camera’s only like 2.0 megapixels. It’s like buying an expensive car with no engine.”

Nhung Vu, 15: “It’s really good I said if it was about £100 cheaper I’d buy it and if I didn’t have a phone at the moment I’d do just that.”

Osman Abdul-Moomin, 12: “It looks really high tech. But it’s not really for kids.”

Sean O’Shea, 17: “Nice, but it looks like it will go out of fashion really quickly because of its retro design.”

Joana Yelibora, 21: “It’s good so far it has internet.”

Claire Opel, 16: “I don’t like it, I just don’t like touch screen.”

Jasmine Dong, 19: “I’ve now got an N95 and I stick by what I said last time: just no need for an iPhone.”

Kris Shukla, 15: “The iPhone is well suited to media and photography use but is sometimes brittle and frustrating to use at times. It takes some time getting used to.”

Fawziyah Rahman, 15: “I don’t really like the idea of no buttons; it makes the phone seem almost ‘unreal’, because the buttons are not actually there. It is like they’re behind the screen.”

Bobjinder Singh, 17: “Well yeah it’s good, good internet stuff going on with an mp3 thing. Alternatively you could get a normal phone and an iPod stick them together and bingo you’ve got an iPhone.”

Charlie Smith, 11: “It is wicked, my mum’s got one and I’m getting the new one soon.”

Charles Joshua, 14: “I think that the iPhone is very stylish and innovative.”

Thomas Fenn, 18: “What a waste, they could have put so much more into the phone. It doesn’t even have a video camera does it?”

Nasir Mahmood: “It looks sick and it’s easy to use.”

Leevean Blackwood: “Great, cool and totally convenient. Sexy too.”

Aisha Moosa, 15: “I don’t like it because it’s too fragile and I heard the calls are most likely to get bugged. It’s too fragile for me but it’s a decent phone. I hadn’t handled the phone before that’s why I said it was useless without a stylus.”

Fascinating stuff! Thanks Isaah!

please stop sayin “hows yer blud” it does not qualify as slang anywhere. kudos for knowing what “sick” meant though.

Great commentary on the UK youth. Try the same in the US and you will get quite the rave. We are not privy to the N95, N82 or anything much like those. Our phones just don't match up to what you have across seas. Trust me when I say the iPhone is absolutely wicked to our youth and everyone of them would have one if they could afford one. It will come and go, but it has set a wonderful precedence.

Thanks for that Giff! Well as you'll read in my iPhone review I have a very different view on the iPhone in comparison U.S young people.
