A very very good phone/ipod
Apple iPhone 3G 16 GB
Member Name: StudentTraveller
Apple iPhone 3G 16 GB
Advantages: Access to the app store can turn the phone into nearly anything!
Disadvantages: Pricy (but worth it)
If you believe, ad I once did, that this is just a phone - prepare to be surprised! Features to include, the camera (admittedly no video, and poor quality picture compared to some 5MP camera phones), youtube app (music, entertainment - videos load quickly with 3G/wifi connection and requires patience with Edge connection). Google Maps (I now rely on this too much, its that useful!) scientific calculator, itunes store (only with wifi connection), the app store filled with opportunities!
However it is not the list of features that makes this phone incredible, it is the ease of use. The touch interface is so intuitive and it took seconds to start flicking pages, tapping texts and pinching pictures. The texting can be easily learnt in landscape mode and I was one-finger tapping portrait mode in no time! The auto spellcheck can get a bit frustrating but learns what your trying to type quickly. The visual voicemail is also easy to use and the safari internet app is very useful. I have now had this phone for two years (equipped with a case and a screen cover to prevent scratches and general injuries on nights out etc!) 16GB is ample for music and videos, but I would not have survived with the 8GB version (at 16gb with 2,750 songs, 3 videos, 1000 photos).
Summary: The phone that does it all, with both grace and ease
