iPhone 3GS 8GB
Advantages: Easy to use for internet and apps, good looking phone, camera quality good in daytime
Disadvantages: Battery power becomes low quickly, no flash, not enough memory to also be used as ipod
As with Snow White's poisoned apple the iphone 3GS will leave you in a coma-like state on your sofa. With an app for almost everything you can end up staring at the screen all day with no need to leave your phone. It is slimline and easy to use for any technophobes.
It almost sounds perfect, so why did I choose to compare this phone to a poison apple? As beautiful as it may seem on the surface it has it issues. Firstly if you have bought this phone you are likely to want to use all the fun apps on the go, and surely this is the purpose of having an iphone. Well you may not get the happily ever after you hoped for with the battery running out very quickly. This can make having an iphone no more than a bad temptation on long journeys as it will die leaving you lost (this has happened to me a fair few times!) So say you try to turn off your phone to give yourself and it a nap, well don't rely on your phone to wake you up as the alarm only works when switched on.
These simple issues are what most other phone companies have been working on for years, instead Apple loves to concentrate on the sparkles and leave the practicalities for another more expensive new iphone who shall one day come along and be mine and your 'loves first kiss' (...from a phone) but until that day comes I would advise this phone for those who like to stay indoors or need internet on their mobiles.
Summary: Nice phone but you are paying for the brand not the product
