Apple iPhone 3G

PC Magazine
19 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The iPhone 3G represents the birth of a new computing platform. It's also one very cool phone. While it's not perfect, it makes other options on AT&T look tired.
  • Pros: 3G. True GPS. App Store adds hundreds of third-party programs. Voice quality is much improved from the original iPhone. No more recessed headphone jack. Surprisingly good battery life.
  • Cons: An unknown number of buggy units have been released. Still missing video recording, voice dialing, stereo Bluetooth support, picture messaging, and document editing. Earbuds are still lousy.

Review: Apple iPhone 3G

Wired
20 October 2008
  • Excerpt: [Editor’s note: We’ve spent an entire week testing every single nuance of the iPhone 3G and what follows is Wired ‘s official, pull-no-punches, boiled-down, just-the-facts review. If you’re still hankering for a lengthier take on the phone, check out our in-depth first look, which we recorded right...
  • Pros: Without exception, the best user interface of any phone. WiFi and zippy 3G network fetch websites faster than a Labrador on a sirloin. GPS with Google Maps integration beats many handheld navigators. Bright, beautiful, highly responsive touchscreen with easy-on-the-eyes color temperature.
  • Cons: Battery drains juice faster than a toddler in the desert. AT&T’s 3G network riddled with more holes than Krispy Kreme. Want to cut and paste? Bust out the scissors and glue. Plastic back highly susceptible to nicks and scratches. Still no MMS. Did we mention the battery stinks? Well, it’s worth m...

Phone Arena
14 July 2008
  • Conclusion: The iPhone 3G is a multimedia powerhouse, with a gorgeous design and an interface that remains the standard. If you don’t already own one, the iPhone 3G is well worth the $200-300 it will set you back, but what about if you do already have one?
  • Pros: The design remains iconic, It’s UI still sets the mobile standard, The multimedia capabilities can’t be beat
  • Cons: The new software can be buggy, and lacks the normal Apple refinement, There is a lack of wow this time around, Apple simply brought the features up to par with other offerings rather than giving the customer something completely new

iPhone 3G Review

LAPTOP Magazine
12 July 2008
  • Summary: Yes, first-gen iPhone owners benefit from the 2.0 software upgrade, but that doesn't diminish the magnitude of the iPhone 3G's faster data speeds and improved call quality. Upgrading isn't exactly a no-brainer, however, especially since the monthly data fee is now $10 more per month.

  • Summary: The iPhone 3G improves on its predecessor, refining its strengths and eliminating some of its flaws. On the way, however, it picked up a few more flaws. Exchange and MobileMe support are appealing, but poor battery life and substandard GPS implementation will deter some people.
  • Pros: Multi-touch navigation, HSDPA bandwidth, Exchange and MobileMe support
  • Cons: Poor GPS implementation, no physical keyboard, poor battery life
