iPhone 3GS 8GB
Advantages: Touch Response Time, Design & Simplicity
Disadvantages: Low Memory and Curved Back
This iPhone 3GS was my first touch screen phone and I was very dubious about touch phones before I got my hands on this bad boy. I can honestly say that Apple has the best touch screens in the world, having tried out your cheaper models and other highly priced phones like the Samsung Galaxy S they just dont meet the same standard of smoothness and response time is great. It really is effortless to use in comparison to others where you have some seriouse lag time and that's what I was worried about when getting an iPhone but this device quickly gets rid of those fears and you start to enjoy the phone for what it is. A fantastic iPod Touch that is a phone (Just kidding) but in some ways thats all this is, You have the apps, games and music the same as a touch but you feel like you are better and cooler than your friends when you say iPhone rather than iPod Touch. This phone is a great purchase for any first time touch phone users(If there are any left) as it is simple to use and very efficient. The battery is decent but dont expect to be playing games or watching videos for hours on end. It is very stylish and nice to look at but does lack the flatness to sit on a table without becoming annoying at some point, unlike the more up to date models the iPhone 4 & 4S. For the price it is almost guaranteed that unless you seek the new of the new that you should get this version of the iphone over going for the 4. It really doesnt make any sense to go for the 4 unless you (A) Hate the back that wont sit stable on the table (B) Love all the latest tweaks that apple continually add to the new models to add another £250 onto the price tag. Probably on the low side w/ £250 aswell. The phone is really good and I would recommend to everyone who wants and iPhone but doesnt want to pay the ridiculous prices the latest editions cost. The only other downside to this model is the 8GB memory, I'm afraid for me and many others that just doesnt cut the cake, but if you go higher expect another silly price increase.
Summary: Great iPhone still a great purchase even with new models released
