Well, I'm pretty much the first few IPHONE 3GS users in my country, as I got it in the morning of the release date. I've had the original iphone and 3G, and now I have 3GS. I really don't see why people hate iphones so much.... I really like mine. YES it's pretty crappy when it comes to multi tasking and compatibility with PCs, but I guess there is no such thing as a perfect phone. We all have different needs, and my IPHONE 3GS meets most of my priority needs. I'm extremely happy with my 3GS. My priority is RESPONSIVE INTERFACE, VARIOUS LANGUAGE SUPPORT (READ AND INPUT), and WEB BROWSER. That's all I ask from my phone, and that's what IPHONE 3GS provides.
This phone in terms of usability is simply the best. I use to change my phone every 3 to 6 months because i would get bored of the phone and the phone bogs down due to heavy use etc. All these other types of smartphones simply cannot compare due to one fact and only that: THERE IS VERY MINIMAL LAG when switching apps typing or doing whatever u are doing. That alone as a feature does it for me, as all other phones LAG when i use them. I've used a lot of phones in my time but seriously Apple has taking it to another level. Its obvious its the best cuz EVERY other phone company that exists is doing a touch screen phone. just like the walkman in the old days. can't beat them join them.
As for features, it does everything well. I'm no geek that needs my smartfone to hack or whatever nerds get up to because "there's not enough functions" or "it can't do this or it can't do that" . for me it does everything well (since firmware 3.0) so no biggie here. Then there's the app store...could go on forever.
As for the looks, look at it! its sexy as hell. A touch screen tablet in your pocket? sounds like it's out of a sci fi movie! O i meant a touch screen tablet in your pocket that works. it's the future.
Nokia, SE and especially Motorola seriously need to step up the game. another thing is the other manufacturers need to do is up the build quality on their handsets. Apple smashes it again. No moving parts so its less likely to fall apart.
it may seem i'm all up in Apple's arse but the phone has downsides too but not bad enough for ANYONE to justify it's a crappy phone. And it's not just that, i'm just so annoyed that the other phone companies namely Nokia who have been making phones since the late 70's can't make a well built, well equipped, long lasting battery, sexy smartphone and Apple did it first go. i can't remember the last Nokia i enjoyed using. Yes i can it was the 8210.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2009i'm curious, if iphone the best then why don't i see it in the rankings here in gsmarena.because most jokers across the world has no access to the phone. they read a bit of negative press then they"re like muppets saying the phone is crap without ever using it! use it before u abuse it i have the iphone 2g which was a serious bit of kit, now i have the iphone 3gs which is even better! may look the same as the iphone 3g but i dont care as i never had the 3g and i have the 3gs in white which just looks so serious black i feel makes the iphone abit bland.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970So you're going to bash the Apple brand? Write spamming posts about how awful the iPhone is? That's against posting rules. Enough about getting P%nm banned, you're going to end up getting yourself banned at this rate.
Hi guys, I bought 3gs in Tehran Iran. Grey market in 1430 $ ,,, 16 G.
Speed : excellent . Download from wifi: excellent.
Camera(video) : thanks apple .copy & paste: again; thanks apple. And other excellent fuch.... I had 2 iPhone 2 g& ,1, 3 g,,,,,& now 3gs
i tried a iphone 3g yesterday and it was really amazing, apple really know how to get the job done! but i hoped that it allowed multitasking and it had a higher resolution screen (at least a 640x480), if apple added such improvements it´d have beaten every other brand in the market
iphone is one of the best phone because it is designed for User Friendly with Powerful TouchScreen.
No need many options in one toy. Just look for the options that you must have and the avaibility for that option, you will see that iphone is the best choice.
Hi guys i got an apple 3g 2day and i already hav a N97 black, and i am fan of nokia from the past 7years but after a day xperience with apple I think apple is superior compared 2nokia music is way much better and the system runs much smoother,browsing is much better as well and if u don't beleive me give a try urself I really like it and I am a bit dissapointed from nokia considering that they have been on this bussines b4 apple, if nokia wont do something probably they goin down, i will still use my n97 but more the apple and if u like music consider buying an apple. Bad points on apple and wat i really hate about it is that is very limited and restricted on Bluetooth sending files and apple applications.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2009i'm curious, if iphone the best then why don't i see it in the rankings here in gsmarena.1 who said it's the best.
2 there are bunches of fanboi's who continuously vote 10,10,10 for phones they like and 1,1,1 for those they don't.
The ratings used here are worthless because of this.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970That support document was already there, it was changed to add the new model.
As I said before look in any electronic equipment manual and you'll find the same operating temperature ranges.

had iphone 3gs white 32 gb since launch and its excellent combined with new 3.0 update and videoetc its the best again no overheating at all........... iphone is still at the top aand next june it will still be there
foxy, 11 Jul 2009FACT: iPhone 3GS has a gobal shortage.
If it was such a bad phone why is this the case?
I re... moreThat might because the initial sales were far higher than expected and Apple continues to roll out releases around the world.
We sold all our stock the first day, none have returned with problems.
As was said in the link I posted before most of the reports of the supposed overheating issue all link back to one story about one iPhone.
iphone 3.o not thAt perfect yet when you used wifi you may find that it get cut off unless you lock in a few times. It a bit slow in opening up program. As for battery it pretty ok last me the whole day while i play games online and also sufing net and make call. but some old program cannot be support anymore in new 3gs phone. so got to try and error.
FACT: iPhone 3GS has a gobal shortage.

I rest my case
Hi there, I'm considering this phone but have heard that the battery life is fairly poor. Just wondering how true this is as my partner has a HTC Dream and she needs to charge it every day. I currently have a Nokia e71 and am thinking either the iphone 3gs or the blackberry storm. Can someone give me some feedback in regards to battery etc.
