Expert review by : Ross Catanzariti (goodgearguide.com.au)

Apple iPhone 3GS (32GB)

 

The iPhone 3GS is the third version of Apple's smartphone. It looks almost identical to its predecessor, the iPhone 3G, but features a faster processo...

Faster, more memory, oleophobic screen coating, improved camera with autofocus, video recording and on-board editing, Voice Control, digital compass and Maps integration, improved battery life

Design is almost identical to previous iPhone 3G, screen's colours are noticeably warmer, no camera flash

Apple's iPhone 3GS is the best iPhone yet, but we aren't convinced iPhone 3G owners will find it a worthwhile upgrade, especially considering the free 3.0 software update added plenty of extra features. For potential new iPhone owners, though, the...

Apple iPhone 3G S

 

Better battery life, faster, tethering, screen more resistant to fingerprints, Voice Control, A2DP (stereo) Bluetooth, digital compass, Find My iPhone, video recording

Voice Control doesn't launch apps or work with Bluetooth headsets, access to some features (like tethering) will depend on telcos

The iPhone 3G S has better battery life, power and speed compared to the 3G, and provides hardware-based features that enhance existing apps and functions on the phone. If all that matters to you, then upgrading is worth it, but if you're more of a...

Apple iPhone 3GS

 

The iPhone 3GS is faster and we appreciate the new features and extended battery life, but call quality and 3G reception still need improvement.

Multimedia messaging, video recording and voice dialling - finally. Runs faster. Promised longer battery life. Multimedia quality continues to shine.

No improvement in call quality. 3G signal reception uneven. Still no Flash Lite, USB transfer and storage or multitasking.

Even substantial concerns about network reception and battery life can't stop us from recommending the iPhone 3GS. The combination of its fantastic browser, the full-featured iPod media player and Apple's App Store form a compelling trio, and are...

Apple iPhone 3GS

 

The iPhone 3GS touchscreen mobile phone has had its processor upgraded from the iPhone 3G's 412MHz to a more powerful 600MHz chip, and doubled the RAM that the iPhone 3G had. This has given the new iPhone a truly significant performance hike across a...

Same socket connections as iPhone 3G

Apple iPhone 3GS quick review

 

The newest iPhone answers the critics.

To look at, the new iPhone 3GS is almost identical to the previous model. The big improvements are all 'under the hood', including a decent speed boost which Apple claims is up to twice as fast as the previous model.
