Apple iPhone 3G

 

It's over hyped and over here, but is it worth it? Find out in the only iPhone 3G review worth reading…probably.

It may be seen as little more than an incremental upgrade, but Apple has hit all the right buttons to make the iPhone 3G an instant hit. It's still sleek, it's still great to use and it's still the best touch screen phone by a country mile. Wed to this...

Apple iPhone 3G 8GB review

 

Class leader for sound – it's undeniably punchy, open and brilliantly subtle

Gorgeous design ; fantastic interface ; excellent sound and picture quality ; fine iTunes software

As a media device, you can’t fault it

Sensational performance in an intuitive, fool-proof package. Simply brilliant

Apple iPhone 3G review

 

New model is less expensive, looks smarter, is more flexible – and sounds better too

Does everything the brilliant and revolutionary original iPhone did ; adds more features ; an even more impressive sonic performance, and has a smaller price-tag

Still limited to O2 ; some will be disappointed that the camera hasn't been improved ; will undoubtedly lose some chic-appeal as it becomes inevitably ubiquitous

The new iPhone improves on its near-perfect predecessor, and at this price, Apple is on its way to taking over the world of mobile phones in the same way it did MP3 players

Apple iPhone 3G

 

So the mobile phone everyone has been clawing for since the launch of the last iPhone is here. But it is any good? Is it an improvement on the first version and has the time finally come for the Apple to dominate the mobile phone industry like it has...

3G, GPS inclusion, App Store, interface

No improvement on the camera, O2's 3G coverage not great, no search in email, no "read all", no cut and paste, GPS fiddly to use

So should you? Love it or hate it, there is no denying that Apple has raised the bar on the interface front. It might not be the tech spec king compared to the likes of the HTC Diamond but from a usability point of view for the consumer it is hard to...

The anticipation of Apple's new iPhone 3G has been immense, but is it worth all the fanfare and ticker tape?

Unquestionably worth the pre-launch hype, and at the price, definitely worth snaffling. Time to join the queue…

Apple iPhone 3G – First Look

 

So what do you want from the new iPhone? Do you want 3G, so you can surf the net faster when you're not in Starbucks? For sure. Push email, so you don't have to go searching for your mail all the time? Natch. A lower price? Are the Kennedys gunshy? To...

3G, GPS, headphone socket, improved contacts

Camera, texting, and video recording could all be better

Apple iPhone 3G review

 

The first 3G-equipped iPhone arrives to trump the 2G-original

Awesome functionality for first-timers All-round improvement on iPhone 2G 3G data is speedy GPS facility very welcome Good data and Wi-Fi contracts

Battery life typically smartphone-poor GPS functionality not quite there yet Texting still needs work Camera remains poor

There are still a few things to be ironed out, but it's to do with firmware and - battery life and camera aside - the hardware is superb. A standard the rest must show they can compete with.

Apple iPhone 3G

 

Apple likes to call the iPhone 3G the only mobile that's better than the iPhone. The reason for this version's superiority has less to do with hardware improvements than the new features of the operating system and the availability of third party...

Don't fight it, you know you want one. Almost as good as Apple thinks it is.

Apple iPhone 3G review

 

The iPhone 3G is still available, even following the release of the newer Apple iPhone 4.

If you've been cautious and waited a year for the second generation of iPhone, your patience will be rewarded. The iPhone 3G improves on the original iPhone's audio quality, offers access to a faster data network, and sports built-in GPS functionality....

Apple iPhone 3G 8GB Review

 

The killer feature is in the name. This iPhone offers 3G data speeds, rather than the much-maligned EDGE of the original. GPS is the other major new feature, with plenty of other tweaks. However, the iPhone…
