Well today I got the iPhone 3G S and as promised I will review it for everyone, there is also a test and unboxing vid below :D. Ok so to start, when I first opened it and gave it its first boot I was wowed with its speed booting took only a few seconds and more importantly everything was ready to go on it I went straight into Safari with no lag what so ever, obviously after I wend into safari I went in to check out the video recording and new camera and yes it is a huge improvement having 3.0MP vs 2.0MP.
Video recording on the 3G S is superb for a phone, most phones, even phones that have 8.0MP cameras take pretty crappy video, but I am pleased to say this is the best quality phone video I have ever seen and you can trim and edit it right from your phone which is great as well. I noticed its 3G speed has increased which is great it technically went to 7.2 mbps which, again, is great obviously the biggest improvement is its speed difference and I can confidently say you wont be disappointed if you decide to buy the 3G S especially if you own a 2G iPhone however I think this update is that good I would recommend it to 3G users as well.
Its aesthetics pleasing granted it still has the same design, but it still looks great despite that there was no design change obviously also I got a Black model because last year when I got my 3G iPhone I went with White so I decided to go with a change I also see a lot of people who got black are going with white such as Jon4lakers etc. but it really doesn’t matter what color you get they all look great.
The software changes to the iPhone 3G S were pretty small but there was a fair bit that was changed such as the compass app which would be handy if you were hiking or you needed a compass even for school but the main reason Apple put a compass in the iPhone 3G S was to give the user a better experience in Google maps and soon the Tom tom app for the iPhone which I definitely will be getting it looks great , check it out if you haven’t already but yeh the compass is nice they also gave the iPhone 3G S video recording capabilities through its camera app and there is also voice control on the iPhone 3G S.
The list of software changes is:
- Voice control
- Video Recording/Camera Autofocus
- Advanced google maps with compass integration
- And so on, there is also a bigger battery in the 3G S
In all if you have the iPhone 2G you should definitely get this I would even go as far as recommending this for existing iPhone 3G users I would give it an 8/10 for overall ease of use and speed. Also enjoy the pics and videos below :D.
