Apple have always been at the forefront of technology. They have a hardcore devoted following of especially the younger generation these days.
The iPhone 3GS when it was first released was a revolution. It still is as you can tell by the price that it still commands on both the new and second hand market. This review is going to give reasons why if you decide against the iPhone 4 or 4S why the iPhone 3GS is the next best thing.
The iPhone 3GS on it's appearance is very sleek, it fits perfectly in your hand with the curvature of the back of the phone. The glossy sheen it has adds to the sexiness and the silver trim around the edge is also something which adds to the appeal.
The capacitive screen is still in my opinion way ahead of anything on any other phone with just the iPhone 4 and 4S beating it. The responsiveness is amazing and even with screen protectors on it it still reacts to the slightest touch.
The battery is where it lets itself down. The major downsides to the battery are that it isn't removable so if it goes wrong you have to send it away and also when running apps especially the ones that have advertising in them (So mainly the free version of apps) the battery seems to drain.
One other thing that I tend to find with the 3GS is that the button on the side that changes the volume from on to silent sometimes has a habit of malfunctioning and you get your phone vibrating every time that switch touches anything which can be very annoying and I think this is a common problem in the 3GS.
It is so useful though to organise things, have music playing, watch videos and read ebooks......It's hard to think of an item which has more influence in your day to day life than the iPhones that Apple produce. If the battery had been better I would have given this a 5 star rating because this phone really started off the smartphone boom. However due to the battery life and the stupid fragile silence switch will have to give this a 4 star rating. A very good alternative to the more more expensive iPhone 4 and 4S.
Summary: A great phone which still looks cool 4 years after it came out!
