ProIt's an iPhone

ConsBattery life is useless

IPhone 3GS 32G When I got my iPod I was over the moon with it and still am. I never in a million years thought I’d ever get an iPhone, for a start the price of them is ridiculous to say the least, yes they may well be the best thing since sliced bread but really, the price of iPhones amazes me...

ConsCost! Oh, and battery length.

The iPhone 3GS, it even has a name that makes me purr with pleasure in nothing short of quite a geeky way. That's something about the iPhone right off, it looks cool, it sounds cool, it was designed to ooze cool, yet there is something about the iPhone that seems to breathe hints of geekiness...

ConsBattery life, non-removable battery, cost

I’ve finally taken the plunge and bought myself an Apple iPhone after using a Samsung Omnia i900 for around a year. I went straight for the 32GB 3GS but it’s also available with 16GB of space if you don’t think you’d need more than that. DESIGN AND BUILD The phone feels solid with a fair bit of...

After numerous phones in the past few years, Nokia, Samsung, Sony-Ericsson I decided that it was finally time for me to purchase an iPhone - something I'd always considered out of my budget range. I picked it up for a reasonable price on an O2 contract about a year ago. The reason for this was...

Working in a phone shop have had many experiences with the apple iphones, with all the problems with the iphone 4g croping up there is no doubt that the perfect 3gs is still the way to go or the item to hold on to, until apple come along and sort out the problems with the 4g i will most certainly...

A couple of months ago I bought an Apple iPhone 3GS 16Gb. It is my first iPhone, and also my first smart phone. I was tempted by the original iPhone and the iPhone 3G, but was put out by some key feature omissions, notably lack of MMS and voice dialling. The iPhone is immaculately presented in a...

Product Information : Apple iPhone 3GS 32GB

Manufacturer's product description

The first thing you'll notice about iPhone 3GS is how quickly you can launch applications. Web pages render in a fraction of the time, and you can view email attachments faster. Improved performance and updated 3D graphics deliver an incredible gaming experience, too. In fact, everything you do on iPhone 3GS is up to 2x faster and more responsive than iPhone 3G. Now you can shoot video, edit it, and share it - all on your iPhone 3GS. Shoot high-quality VGA video in portrait or landscape. Trim your footage by adjusting start and end points. Then share your video in an email, post it to your MobileMe gallery, publish it on YouTube, or sync it back to your Mac or PC using iTunes. The 3-megapixel camera takes great still photos, too, thanks to built-in autofocus and a handy feature that lets you tap the display to focus on anything (or anyone) you want. Voice Control can find anybody in your contacts list. Simply say a name to make a call. Or say a phone number. iPhone repeats your voice commands to confirm them, then dials away. Voice Control knows the music in your iPod, too. Ask your iPhone what song is playing (and hear it answer). Tell it to play your favorite album. Even have it play more songs like the one you're listening to. With a built-in digital compass, iPhone 3GS can point the way. Use the Compass app, or watch as it automatically reorients maps to match the direction you're facing. Cut, copy, and paste words and photos, even between applications. Copy and paste images and content from the web, too. iPhone includes built-in Nike + iPod support. Just slip the Nike + iPod Sensor (available separately) into your Nike+ shoe and start your workout.
