Anonymous, 27 Jun 2009Please don't upgrade your 3g the 3gs is only a cosmetic fix just update to 3.0 and u will b so... moreI don't agree about it being "only a cosmetic fix". Video, 3mp camera, touch select foucus camera, compass, voice controls (you can say "play songs by REM" and it will. These are not "cosmetic fixes", you get non of these functions in the 3.0 upgrade. If the 3Gs cost too much for your budget, then sure just get the free 3.0 upgrade, but if you can afford the 3Gs upgrade, then I think it is worth the money.
Please don't upgrade your 3g the 3gs is only a cosmetic fix just update to 3.0 and u will b soughted by the way it's pricey to. Otherwise you will b the looser driving a crap Chinese car worth about 2300$ it's insane
Just to add, the touch to select focus area is really useful if your main subject is off center in the image. It works perfect.
For those who have a 3G and are wondering if they should upgrade. The improvements of the 3Gs that I found as being useful are, video recording, a little longer bat life, a better camera (you can see the better image quality), I also like the compass function intergrated into google maps, I like having 32gb. if these thing are not that important, stay with the 3G and wait for the next model that may have video call.

disabled person, and senior citizens uses nokias! who get used to prehistoric phones and dont have the mental and physical ability to change phones and get used to it anymore. they needed keyboard buttons and a big font because of poor eyesight and lack of finger control abilities. They need a very loudspeaker because they cant hear that much!LOL
i guess you are one of them, dont worry iphone users will also use nokias when they get old!LOL

Did you guys find iPhone 3G slow or any need to upgrade to this... moreWe have a demo one at work and it is definately a lot faster than my 3G, it has the video camera, with touch to focus and adjust the exposure to any point on the screen, the camera also works better in dark places, voice commands, compass, there are also some accessibility functions like reading out every touch on the screen.
I'm still deciding if I want to change, it still costs a lot to get out of my plan but I can recoup that easily by selling either my 8 or 16GB unlocked 3G's.
Anonymous, 27 Jun 2009the x1 is way better than any iphone and you can store up to 32gb of micro sd memory Windows Mobile? Please, as if! They are both in a completely different market. Xperia is a great business phone, but can it beat the iPhone in it's entertainment market? No, it can't. Just because it "can store up to 32gb" that makes it better than the iPhone? What a great argument you have there.

Yasir Mansoor, 27 Jun 2009For those who are using 3G! Did you guys find iPhone 3G slow or any need to upgrade to this... morePersonally, I don't feel the need to upgrade. It's not much different, and at the moment there's no 3GS specific apps (Not that I know of, anyway) so why upgrade? Personally I think it is a bit overrated, especially with all the other phones coming out. I think I'll keep my 3G iPhone.
For those who are using 3G!
Did you guys find iPhone 3G slow or any need to upgrade to this 3g(s), and for the camera com'on 3.5MP is way back man, for 400$ i can easily get 8Mp phone, so what's the need to bring such a hype to an ordinary upgraded phone ?

What are you a millionaire or something their data charges are extortionist.
Voda has 7.2 up and running anyway so will match the speed.
Don't forget Vodafone had the first HSDPA network up and running in Australia.
Can someone using this comment on the battery life? Kindly state how u gauge the measuring. E.g. time approx time online, music, calls, etc.
bonzai, 27 Jun 2009hey guys! i'm just wondering is the battery of the iphone 3GS is way better than the iphone 3G... moreThat's quite a big difference between 1 day or 2. As long it can last about 1 full day i think its reasonable. It all depends on how is your usage. More online will drain down the battery faster than using for calls & music.
Went from an iphone 3G to a Windows mobile back to a 3Gs, Best thing i have ever done!!!! the 3Gs is so much quicker.... even internet is fast (recomend Telstra) makes the 3G look second class Battery life is also much better i have been using mine non stop all day and still full battery!!
