Apple's iphone 3Gs is totally left behind by Samsung. Koreans defeated the Americans! Samsung's Jet & Omnia2 are AMOLED resistive touch screens (more brilliant life-like images & battery efficient), far way better than the capacitive TFT touch screen of the iphone 3Gs. Camera of Samsung Jet & Omnia2 are 5MP with flash & auto-focus, while iphone 3Gs only has 3MP and manual focus. Tsk tsk. Iphone 3Gs dosen't have a MicroSD card slot, while Samsung Jet & Omnia2 has an expansion card slot. Samsung Jet & Omnia2 can also play Divx vids without conversion, wow! Samsung phones have radio, but the iPhone 3Gs has no radio. What's best on Samsung Jet & Omnia2 that left iphone 3Gs is that Samsung Jet & Omnia2 has 800mHz of processor, very fast, while iPhone 3Gs has around 600mHz. What!! The iphone 3Gs has no video calling?!
Its just weird, why would the iphone 3Gs flaunt its compass, do we ever get lost in the city and use a paper map? Hey, there is a feature called GPS right?
So if your planning to buy a touch phone now, think deeply, will i get a flashy & trendy iPhone 3Gs (but not worth the features & specs) or will I buy a touch phone that is like a Swiss-army knife??
A quick take on the Apple vs. Android battle. Feel free to comment
Look, i used to hate the iphone as much as the next person, that is until i actually got my hands on one. it is really a great multimedia device. Camera? yea its crap, but who wants to take amazing quality photos on a phone, get an SLR if you want good quality pictures and you're into your photography.
I must however agree that the new 3Gs is a great dissapointment. There is absolutely no difference to the old one, other than slightly bigger storage and a 3 MP camera, i mean come on Apple, you must have some kind of intelligence at your head office, if you don't just do a bit of market research instead of recycling your old technology.
Nicky, 28 Jun 2009I am about to buy an Apple iphone 3GS. I am not that savy. My old Nokia N95 had a memory car... moreSync the N95 to a computer, then when you plug your iPhone into iTunes it will ask which address book you want to use, that's the contacts taken care of, what other information?
A, 28 Jun 2009Does anybody know if this has a built in radio? Thanks.not according to the apple iphone specifications

Hey Jacob, if you can read, this post is about Apple's 3Gs, go peddle you SE phones on the SE post. Were not interested in buying your phones here. Enjoy your SE phones, just enjoy them somewhere else.

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.

They need a very loudspeaker because they cant hear that much!LOL
