The best Apple since Granny Smith! Review with images

Advantagesfeatures, appearance, strength, style, ease of use

Disadvantagesn/a

"...and a gorgeous shiny mirrored Apple logo (naturally, an apple) on the back of the black back. It definity looks gorgeous, but as we know, looks can be deceiving! === Initialising === The phone comes in a little black cardboard box, that is a lot more compact than usual 'I'm-barely-smaller-than-a-shoe-box' phone boxes. I 'aww'ed for a while at the box before stripping it open to reveal its contets. Before coming to the manual book I was searching ..." Read review

Great for those who love the internet Review with images

Advantagestouch screen, internet, 3G, music, camera

Disadvantagesbattery life, only use itunes

"...not already registered with another apple product. I had to use a different computer because I was told if I used one that had someones ipod data on, it would unsync theirs, its kind of confusing stuff. You have to create an itunes account and fill in your information as the phone is connected to the computer. It asks for your credit card details. I was not too happy about that but they have never took any money from my card without permission. It ..." Read review

Apple i Phone 3GS 8GB

AdvantagesEverything!

Disadvantagespoor battery life when using apps, the initial cost of the phone

"...suggest you go to the Apple website and it will tell you everything you need to know. Apart from the price, the only other real problem is the battery life. When used just as a phone, the battery can last a good 3-4 days easily. This is certainly not the case though when the apps are used. I can get through a full battery in less than a day when the phone is used regularly so I would recommend purchasing a car charger from ebay too. I got mine ..." Read review

Fruity Technology

Advantagesstylish, has good features

Disadvantages-

"...phones I use is the Apple iPhone 3GS. The Apple phones are great and the iPhone is very well known for being one of the best. I hadn't had an iPhone up until this one but even though it isn't the newest model, I do actually quite like it. It is a nice design and I can get all of the features I want and really a lot of the more modern extras I probably wouldn't use anyway so this one seems to have the right amount of everything for me. ===APPEARANCE=== The ..."

I miss my clicky buttons!

AdvantagesGreat for everything i need to do

Disadvantagesi miss my clicky buttons!

"...and you will see the apple logo and some gobbledygook writing. The teeny tiny camera is in the top left corner also!. (obviously you can get the Iphone in white too, so if it is white, it won't be black on the back!). I got the Iphone with 8gb of memory for me to fill up with music or data from useless apps. I've added about 11 songs and the only apps that have been downloaded are ones for shopping and banking. I have a laptop to do everything ..." Read review

Does the job it is intended for plus 1000 things more

AdvantagesDoes the job it is intended for plus 1000 things more

DisadvantagesScratches easily

"I Received my iPhone 3gs as an upgrade at the start of this year and I really was not looking forward to a phone that does 100-1 things as I am happy with simple phones that you can call or send messages as surely this is the use for a mobile phone. I was surprised on how stylish the phone is simple yet looks elegant and expensive. The phone is very easy to use I was a little worried at first as it is a touch screen but it is not over sensitive like ..." Read review

Iphones 3gs Taking over.

AdvantagesGreat internet qaulity access

Disadvantagesno flash on camera. only can connect to other iphones using bluetooth other than a vehicle

"I originally had this iphone 3gs due to an upgrade my contract did me which was on vodafone due to me dropping my old phone down the loo (I know stupid of me) The iphone 3gs in my opinion i would recommend it to anyone. It is the best phone i've ever owned myself. Some of the best features on phone:internet amazing especially if you have the download app's from the app store (which most are free) e.g. facebook, ebay.Collecting ..." Read review

Great Phone As Long as It's Been Recently Charged

AdvantagesWide range of apps some of which are extremely useful when your on the go, Good looking phone

DisadvantagesBattery time like all smart phone isn't that good, Phone can get marked and scratched quite easily

"I had my Iphone 3GS 8gb for years and it only recently broke due to me not being gentle with it and dropping it quite a few times so the case ending up cracking. However I don't think this is so much a problem with Iphones, well not from my experience anyway as I think all phones are very prone to breaking if they get dropped, why I always tried to keep mine it is protective case but unfortunately it wasn't in it once or twice when it got dropped. ..."

iPhone 3GS...A revolution

AdvantagesTouch Interface, Fast, Light, Small, Easy to Use

DisadvantagesLacking Industrial Standards, Lacking customization options, Screen isn't the best

"In a brief, the iPhone 3GS is a fast and capable smartphone that is best for someone who enjoys a capitative touch screen and extremely easy User Interface. Hardware The hardware of this smartphone is very nice for something of its time. The screen is bright however it is a fingerprint magnet and is defiantly, in my opinion, not HD. The rear facing camera is perfect for a mobile phone. The processor functions well and allows tasks like checking ..." Read review

iPhone 3Gs the good value buy in the iPhone range

AdvantagesSimple and easy to use, quite fast, no antenna issues

DisadvantagesNot the latest model, memory capacity

"...iPhone 4 which has an Apple A4 800mhz processor and starts at 16Gb the 3Gs is only slightly slower in loading up apps and changing screens. The biggest thing the iPhone 4 has above the 3Gs is face time which is a nice facility. The difference between buying a 3Gs and 4 in money terms the difference was £70 for me as both monthly contract price plans were identical. My first thought was on the capacity side and although I have a few apps I am not ..." Read review

Iphone 3GS review

AdvantagesLooks amazing, millions of apps

DisadvantagesBattery life

"The Ipone 3GS is a great little phone. If you require a phone that has the power of a PC but the portability of a mobile, this is the phone for you. Although the phone itself has been out for a few years now it still runs the most current operating system available from Apple. Resistant to scratches and a full range of exciting and cheap apps from the app store this phone is worth the price. The best feature of this phone has to be that it successfully ..." Read review

The iphone 3gs 8GB: Good and bad

AdvantagesHas so many amazing features. Has an ipod on the phone, and has a game store on the phone.

DisadvantagesThe phone takes a long time to turn on and shuts off by itself sometimes.

"The iphone 3gs is a good phone. It is probably one of the best. I like this phone because of its great features and all it is capable of. The iphone can do so much more than any ordinary phone you get at a cellular store. Like the app store, itunes, ipod, and so much more. On the app store you can type in any game or entertainment type you can think of. On itunes you can download songs from your favorite artist and put it directly into your ipod. ..." Read review

The Rise and Fall of Apple's Most Prized Invention

AdvantagesHolds your music, ability to multitask, built-in GPS, unlimited app space

Disadvantagesunrealiable when downloading/uploading data, apps fail to load, exits apps without warning

"...all of the hype that Apple has endured for this phone, you can still be checking your email or searching for a restaraunt on Google and the phone just exists out of the app for no apparent reason. I also have a feeling that even if you're paying for unlimited data/internet usage, if you go over the desired amount of time AT&T (and most other cellular companies that offer the iPhone) the pages take longer to load and sometimes the URL just outright ..."

what you think to iphone 3gs 8gb???????????? Review with images

Advantagesgood qaulity for apps, internet usage good, sat navigation easy use.

Disadvantagescan easily get damaged, sometimes got poor signal, freezes if dont update it with itunes.

"I got this phone on vodafone contract for 24months. Which i got for £25 a month which came with 600mins, unlimited texts, 2gb of interent usage a month. Which to me in my own opinion this is very good deal. You have to have internet usage at home to be able to use this phone due to a brand new one, you need itunes linked to the internet to be able to set it up. You have to have a itunes app store account to use this phone too. I did love this phone ..." Read review

Easy to use, iPhone 3GS 8GB!

AdvantagesEasy to use, fast internet browsing, suitible for all ages.

DisadvantagesValue for money, Large, Easy to scratch.

"...experience,''' I have now had my Apple iPhone 3GS 8GB for 6 months, and my iPhone is still in perfect condition, as I have droped it many time's. But I highly recommend you buy a case and a screen protector with your iPhone as without these it scratches very easily. When I first got my iPhone, it was extreamly easy to use, even though I didn't have any experiance at all. Although in my opinion it cost too much money. The iPhone is very good for all ..."
