Apple iPhone 3GS review: Same clothes, new feel

 

The Apple iPhone 3GS is probably not the next revolutionary iPhone as you might have expected it. But the performance boost, the sharper camera with video and the purportedly improved battery life certainly...

The truth about the iPhone is this - perhaps about 20 million people around the globe are quoted as having given in to the iPhone temptation ever since the frenzy started. Now, 2 years later, the rest of the modern world is already sick to death of...

iPhone 3GS review

 

If it ain't broke, don't fix it -- right? We know countless reviews of the iPhone 3GS may begin with that cliché, but there's little chance you'd find a better way to describe the strategy that Apple has just put into play with its latest smartphone....

Best-in-class UI ; Huge amount of apps available ; Much faster than previous versions

Lacks multitasking ; Not a big change from the iPhone 3G ; Locked to AT&T's unreliable network

Apple 32GB iPhone 3GS

 

It would be easy to dismiss the Apple iPhone 3GS as an inconsequential hardware upgrade. But to do so would underestimate how much, collectively, the phone's new features augment the iPhone experience. With the iPhone 3GS, Apple solidifies its...

Faster processor improves performance Improved camera with video recording ; Bright, high-quality fingerprint-resistant touchscreen ; Built-in GPS and compass ; Decent autofocus camera with SD video capability ; Extremely fast and responsive ; Large...

Battery life still disappoints Still no true multitasking ; Onboard video trimming is destructive ; Requires two-year commitment to AT&T Wireless for lowest prices ; Soft-looking video ; Voice Control lacks some polish

Performance enhancements distinguish the otherwise evolutionary step-up iPhone 3GS from its previous iterations.

Review: Apple iPhone 3GS

 

The iPhone 3GS combines hardware and software enhancements that, combined, keep Apple at the top of the smartphone game.

Faster. More storage. Better camera, with video recording capability. Search encompasses more data, not just one app at a time. Voice navigation. Feature-rich iPhone 3.0 software is free to current iPhone users

Multitasking still limited. No tethering or MMS support yet for AT&T users. Recent iPhone 3G customers must pay a fortune to upgrade

Apple iPhone 3GS review: Apple iPhone 3GS

 

Apple iPhone 3GS

The iPhone 3GS finally adds common cell phone features like multimedia messaging, video recording, and voice dialing. It runs faster; its promised battery life is longer; and the multimedia quality continues to shine.

The iPhone 3GS' call quality shows no improvements and the 3G signal reception remains uneven. We still don't get Flash Lite, USB transfer and storage, or multitasking.

The iPhone 3GS doesn't make the same grand leap that the iPhone 3G made from the first-generation model, but the latest Apple handset is still a compelling upgrade for some users. The iPhone 3GS is faster and we appreciate the new features and extended...

Apple iPhone 3GS (AT&T)

 

The phone's body is the same slab as ever (it's available in either black or white), with one important change: an invisible "oleophobic" screen coating that repels grease and fingerprints, making watching videos on the phone much more enjoyable. The...

Best handheld computer ever. Faster and more powerful than the iPhone 3G. Excellent video camera mode

Phone performance is still mediocre. Browser still lacks Flash. Still won't be IT managers' first choice

The iPhone 3GS gives new life to the 50,000 available iPhone apps with its much faster performance. This is a terrific handheld computing and Internet device, but understand that voice calls aren't its top priority.

The first new US iPhone 3GS users are picking up their handsets today, and SlashGear is among them. We've been down at the Apple Store in NYC this morning, and have been eagerly playing with the new smartphone to see whether all the hype was worth it....

Apple iPhone 3GS

 

Once upon a time, I dismissed the iPhone as a wannabe smartphone, lacking the key features that truly warranted that label. Since I wrote that column about two years ago, Apple has gone on a feature-adding rampage—adding push email, support for...

Faster everything; improved camera is great; it's got a compass

Battery life could be better; still can't change some alert tones

Where does that leave the iPhone 3GS? For users of the original iPhone, it’s a great upgrade. Owners of the 3G should probably wait and see what Apple has planned for next year before they make the upgrade. And even if you have a moral objection to...

Apple iPhone 4 vs. iPhone 3GS: side by side

 

It has been a few days now since the iPhone 4 has been made available for purchase and there is no doubt that those early adopters are getting a crack at checking out the talked about smartphone. Apple just recently announced selling over 1.7 million...
