Here's a quote from the review of the iPhone 3GS including results of their audio testing:-
"Audio quality deserves a High-Five
Just when we thought that they cannot get much better in this area and here come Apple to surprise us. The audio quality of the iPhone 3G was almost as good as it gets on a portable device and now with the iPhone 3GS it is simply perfect.
The iPod's bigger brother provides the best sonic experiences on the market with all of its readings simply remarkable.
As far as the improvements over the previous gen iPhones is concerned, the iPhone 3GS sports a much improved frequency response with the other readings almost on par. No one will probably be able to tell the differences in distortion levels for example, but this is mostly because the iPhone 3G performed flawlessly there to begin with.
But here are the results, so you can see for yourselves. You can find more information about the test itself and the meaning of the different numbers in the table here.

Apple iPhone 3GS frequency response is simply flawless"
So according to your point of view every other phone ever made must sound like a crackly old AM radio.
It's OK, I like it very much, but it's my backup phone. iPhone is way too clumsy and battery life is way to measly. A decent touch screen and superb internet browsing. Anyway it's a cell phone for fun, I cannot live without some kind of real keyboard phone (doesn't matter 3x4, qwerty or qw-er-ty keyboard), especially if you're heavy texting/mailing an a daily basis. But if you are addicted to all the kind of blogs and news and feeds and so on - then iPhone rules definitely :) BTW - sound quality isn't such an impressive, even if you throw away bundled trashphones and connect smth like sure or sennheiser. Even iPod Touch is kinda dull comparing to let's say Cowon middle line models. But it's OK if your sound quality expectation doesn't exceeds that "nice" FM radio quality :)
wow this phone is awesome... imagine an internet phone... love it... for those who don't know iphone was made for internet purposes... so its an internet that comes with a phone... i hope i could have this one...
I will never ever leave iphone but alternatively i will change another brand of phone for my second back up phone from nokia to blackberry. Why do people like to make themselves messed up and stressed in comparison of this phone vs that phone ?

i feel this is a great phone......but it would be better if apple comes out with a iPhone that has 5MP...the sales would be greater....tq
1dream, 31 Dec 2009I went this far with out using an Iphone. I have played and used everything from a Vertu- P900... morei have tried to use backup battery for 1week, it is very helpful. it charge ur phone up to 30%
I went this far with out using an Iphone. I have played and used everything from a Vertu- P900-Berry's and Yes even went out and got a Droid. But I tell you know after havin an IPHONE 32GS (yes I have one now) for 9 days i am very very impressed. I would get it sooner but the hype of the phone just made my stomach hurt. And now I see why this phone has the hype. It is great very smooth when using the touch screen, operation system is well build and by far an outstanding phone. My only concern is the BATTERY. And I do understand it dies fast specially when you are watching an NBA game live on your iphone. GREAT phone by far and still standing strong.
the best icons's theme for iphone: work with any version:
> Aquarium and Glass Orb Color iphone: both in cydia.
> if you are iphone geek: download casino theme in cydia: open it using ifile or ifunbox and learn how to make it your own. you will have rotating wallpapers as many as you want it to be.
Turn Your Music to be Your Ringtones: use itunes with any version.
>copy the songs to music folder under library on the top left column in itune.
>right click on the song: choose get info and then option
>set start time and stop time: maximum 30 second; don't forget to check the boxes for start and stop and then click ok
>right click on that song agian: choose create AAC version: you will see itune creates a new 30 seconds song.
>right click on the 30 seconds song: choose show in windows explores: rename the file extension from m4a to m4r.
>copy it to your desktop
>use ifunbox or winscp transfer it to this directory: root/var/stash/ringtones...
>or you can use itune to sync ringtones if you know how. I never done it, so I don't know.

You can SEE the iPhone 3GS is losing ground to HTC and HD2 (the iPhone Killer). See link of Top 10 phones of 2009:
