A Phone You've Just Got to Fiddle With...

AdvantagesIt's an iPhone

DisadvantagesBattery life is useless

"...so on. As with all Apple products ITunes is needed to be installed on your computer as this is the way in which you work your iPhone with your computer. ===Things I would want to know=== I actually managed to import all my contacts from my sim onto my iPhone, this I did through the settings. Everything I need to know is there somewhere. If I were to get stuck with something the Apple support communities are fantastic for helping me out, I had one ..." Read review

iPhoned you? You phoned me! Review with images

AdvantagesA phone that holds up well today, it's an Apple iPhone!

DisadvantagesBattery life, screen resolution, weak camera

"...have always maintained that the Apple iPhones have always been great devices. There will be people that complain about you being a sheep if you bought one or that Apple's phone is highly restrictive with what you can do with it, but to me it is simply a fantastic demonstration of what can be done if great minds come together, forging machines that are easy to use. The iPhone is, put simply, made with style and simplicity. It is restrictive ..." Read review

iLove my iPhone!

AdvantagesQuick, Very usable, Lots of Apps, Multi-use

DisadvantagesBattery life, non-removable battery, cost

"...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 itís also available with 16GB of space if you donít think youíd need more than that. ==DESIGN AND BUILD== The phone feels solid with a fair bit of weight to it but not too much as to hinder the usage. The size is of the phone, being a full touch screen phone, is pretty big but fits perfectly in my hand. I believe the ..." Read review

ET, iPhone?

AdvantagesVast choice of features, Easy to use, General all-round brilliance?

DisadvantagesCost! Oh, and battery length.

"...either side, with a silver Apple logo front and back facing. All of this looks very sleek and proper, what you'd expect from a phone you've just forked out a whole load of cash to get. The one thing that I found a little odd was that the iPhone doesn't actually come with an instruction book of any real kind. It has a basic setup guide, and a small guide on what the iPhone's basic features are, but nothing more detailed on the features that are 'hidden', ..." Read review

iPhone 3GS Evolves with OS4

AdvantagesStrong brand, design, build quality, interface

DisadvantagesLimited bluetooth, need latest software for best experience

"...be worthy of the prestigious Apple logo. In itself this is misleading. The mark of excellence is not in the features of the product but in how they are implemented and here Apple once again prove to be leaps and bounds in front of everyone else though the gap is closing. The update to the 4th edition of the Apple OS brings the 3GS bang up to date with excellent multitasking which really should have been there already Apple! Being able to run simultaneous ..."

iPhone 3GS White 32gb - Best phone I've owned.

AdvantagesNice looking, simple, good for music, just works quickly and cleanly!

DisadvantagesLacks some of the freedom of Android.

"...unimpressed. I stepped into the Apple store in Norwich and I was sold as soon as I picked it up. The main reason for this was because of the capacitive touch screen; something which I hadn't tried before. In fact before I tried an iPhone I was firmly against touch screens (which were all generally resistive at the time of purchase and nothing came close to it). Essentially, a year ago there was no competition against it, and I have never been so ..." Read review

Room for a little improvement, mostly fantastic

AdvantagesApps, ease of use, responsive touch

Disadvantagesringtones, sms tones,

"When the iPhone first came out I was VERY anti-iPhone, I thought they were big, ugly and slow, and to be fair the first one was. Last year, I decided to get an iPod touch (3rd generation) to play games and check social networks and emails, which I will review separately at a later date, this is when my life was changed! It was only a matter of months before I decided to stop carrying around a phone and an iPod Touch, to make extra space in my handbag ..." Read review

Review -The Apple iPhone 3GS - An iPhone Upgrade?

AdvantagesUpgraded sofware and Hardware, better camera

DisadvantagesAppearance hasn't changed, Expensive

"== Apple iPhone 3GS - An iPhone Upgrade == Now Iíve heard people saying ďwhat is the point of Apple releasing an new iPhone when it looks exactly like the old one!Ē and to be honest they may have a point... If it ainít broke, donít fix it - right? Well no actually, while there may be very few external changes, inside itís a different story. The 3GS has a larger CPU, more storage space, new internal compass and Apple have improved the optics for ..." Read review

The phone of the future (iphone 3gs)

AdvantagesExcellent phone with lots of features

DisadvantagesCamera needs improvinf further

"~~~Apple iphone~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This phone attracted my attention because even before it was released it was considered the best phone on the market in 2008. I was reluctant to purchase this phone as I was happy with my Sony Ericson but I have to say it was the best decision I have ever made. I actually paid my phone contract off early to get a new contract with O2 as they were the first suppliers to offer the iphone. My first iphone was the iphone ..." Read review

Cheapest way into iPhone 3G S Ownership? Review with images

AdvantagesEverything for every man

DisadvantagesCan be pricey

"...to O2 having to request Apple add your IMEI to their system (for itunes to unlock) and then Apple notify O2 when this is done. However O2 themselves can be quite slow in taking the £15 payment from your phone for the unlock, which suggests they either have a large backlog of requests or do not have a dedicated unlock team or procedure in place. ==oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo== '''Quick Update''' I have not ..."

The iPhone 3GS is a rare thing; a product that beats the hype!

AdvantagesIncredibly easy to use with huge selection of quality dowloadable apps. Almost perfect...

DisadvantagesBattery life it at best acceptable

"...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 surprisingly small, well designed box. The contents comprise the iPhone, wired headphones with microphone, a short USB charging cable and a charger. The chunky instruction ..." Read review

Iphone 3GS 16GB Review. Its Business AND Its Personal !

AdvantagesGorgeous, ever expanding and multiple uses. Clever , sophisticated and robust. A dream.

DisadvantagesBattery drains quickly, very rarely freezes or a glitch. Expensive.

"...my opinion the guys at Apple could of made this a bit more straight forward. You need iTunes to activate your phone and from getting it out of the box, i didnt know where to start. To insert the sim you need the tiniest pin to pull out a slot in the top which could easily be missed. Cosmetics : Looks beautiful , black finish although i reccomend a case as it can be quite slippery and you dont want to be dropping it in the high street. Not too large ..." Read review

Iphone 3gs vs 4.0

AdvantagesNice to hold, nice to use

DisadvantagesDigitizers have a tendancy to break very easy

"...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 be sticking to my 3gs, althought it is now falling behind in a few areas for example the camera, and bluetooth features it is still a very nice to use, packed with features and is a ..."

Does the iphone really match up to all other contenders?

Advantagesfantastic amounts of applications that you can take on and off quickly.

Disadvantagespoor camera only 3 megapixel

"I spent ages recently deciding what new mobile phone to get. I wanted touch screen but also wanted the best in terms of gadgets and things that the phone could do other than be a phone. I looked at the N97 which looked to be fantastic against the reviews and also the TG1 from Toshiba. Now i could go into all the specifications of the iphone compared to the rest, but when i was looking that ment nothing to me. I needed to know if the phone was fast, ..." Read review

For all it's pro's, it doesn't half frustrate me!!

AdvantagesQuality screen, easy to use, good memory and a diverse range of downloadable features.

DisadvantagesThe reception issue really is so terrible, that it overshadows any positives the iPhone3GS offers!

"When I think about what to write here, a million frustrations scream out at my keyboard from the depth of my cranium! This phone just tests and tests my patience! It has to have the most ridiculously poor reception I have ever come across! My mobile phones from the early era of last decade surpass the signal quality on this slim and I must say, quite elegant looking product! But overlooking, it's beautiful design, I find very little to love in ..." Read review
