Apple iPhone 3GS

 

Is the 3GS the best iPhone yet?

The iPhone 3GS is the fastest, most feature rich model so far, and if you don't already have a iPhone 3G it's well worth the money. If you do have an iPhone 3G though, it's not quite so cut and dry. The 3GS may be faster than the 3G when it comes to...

PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARD!

Apple iPhone 3G S

 

A welcome upgrade makes the iPhone even more formidable

Faster and more powerful; new features and holes in spec plugged; larger hard disk; same sky-high AV performance; class-leading interface

It's not cheap - with or without a contract - but what's new

Expert review by : Chris Hall (pocket-lint.com)

Apple iPhone 3GS

 

The iPhone 3G S isn't really a new phone, it's an update, but probably the hottest update of the year. It looks as feels the same as the 3G: externally the device is the same design, which Apple suggests is to retain support for all the third-party...

App Store, user interface, simplicity, compass improves mapping

Price, battery life, no FM radio

There are so many things that work well here making the iPhone a pleasure to use. Text entry is fast and responsive, the new MMS features bring it up to date, email, calendars and contacts are all well handled. Browsing is good and fast, the screen is...

Apple's tweaked iPhone has arrived. Has it got enough to keep it at the top of the smartphone tree?

Evolution, not revolution – the ‘S’ fixes the iPhone's hardware flaws and the 3.0 software keeps it way ahead of its rivals

iPhone 3GS review

 

The definitive verdict on the new 3G S iPhone

Great touchscreen ; Faster processor ; iPhone 3.0 software ; Camera with autofocus

Poor coverage at times ; Expensive to upgrade to ; Internet tethering costs extra ; Battery life doesn't seem to have been improved

Update: read our iPhone 4s review.

Apple iPhone 3GS 16GB Review: In Depth

 

As the name implies, this is a souped-up iPhone 3G, rather than a new generation of Apple's handset. It's more powerful, has a better camera and the ability to shoot video, and supports faster HSDPA data…

The iPhone 3GS is certainly a step on from the iPhone 3G. Everything is faster, the camera is significantly improved, and the video shooting is very well done. If you want an iPhone and aren’t encumbered by a long existing O2 contract, it’s the one to...

Apple iPhone 3G S 32GB Black review

 

Apple's new iPhone may look identical to the earlier 3G model, but the 'S' in the name stands for 'speed', and it certainly delivers.

The new iPhone is a superb piece of design and engineering. It's expensive, however, and we don't like Apple's closed software system.

Undoubtedly the best iPhone yet, but there's no compelling reason to upgrade from an older model.

Apple iPhone 3GS review

 

You will not find a better Internet-connected smartphone than the Apple iPhone 3GS.

The iPhone 3GS addresses most of the fundamental weaknesses of the previous models, adding raw speed, voice-activated phone and music navigation, an improved autofocus camera, and video-recording features. With two major revisions in the past year, the...
