  • 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.

Apple iPhone 3G Review

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? Honestly, we’d have a hard time recommending it, unless you really needed 3G or GPS.
  • 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

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The highly anticipated 2.0 iPhone brings a mixed bag of improvements and omissions. First the good stuff. The new iPhone 3G comes with a $300.00 price drop, 3G speeds, real GPS, all wrapped up in a form factor Apple fans have come to love. The new iPhone now supports Microsoft Outlook Exchange, making it a potentially formidable contender for what has long been RIM’s home turf.

  • 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

  • Conclusion: The iPhone 3G is an evolution rather than a new species, beyond adding 3G and GPS support, it is the original phone with a new skin and poor battery life.
