Apple iPhone 3G 8GB Review: In Depth

Recombu
2 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The killer feature is in the name. This iPhone offers 3G data speeds, rather than the much-maligned EDGE of the original. GPS is the other major new feature, with plenty of other tweaks. However, the iPhone 3G’s release also coincides with Apple’s launch of the App Store, allowing users to buy and download applications from the handset itself, or within iTunes.

  • Conclusion: It is indeed revolutionary, super-sexy and insanely easy to use. This is a phone you could give your multimedia-lovin' mum and she'd get the hang of everything quickly. And she'd appreciate the large icons too . Steve Jobs wasn't exaggerating when he said this was the best iPod Apple has ever made.

  • Excerpt: The Good Still the best mobile OS for web browsing and media playback. 3G is much faster and changes the nature of what the iPhone can do. Improved audio quality going in and out. GPS is useful for both first- and third-party apps. New design is easier to hold and finally allows most earphones. iPhone 2.0 software greatly expands the phone's feature set. Lower price for some customers. The Bad Using 3G shortens battery life; usually need to plug in every day.

Apple iPhone 3G 8GB

What Hi-Fi?
1 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The second generation iPhone includes 3G technology for faster web browsing, and sports a thinner chassis and new plastic back panel (black on the 8GB version, black or white on the 16GB). And the recessed headphone jack has gone, so you can use your own 'phones. Somewhat disappointingly for a phone of this stature, you get only a 2MP camera (some of the other phones boast 5MP). Also, Apple hasn't seen fit to include an MMS messaging function.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design, fantastic interface, excellent sound and picture quality, fine iTunes software
  • Cons: As a media device, you can’t fault it

Apple iPhone 3G

What Hi-Fi?
1 February 2009
  • Pros: Does everything the brilliant and revolutionary original iPhone did, adds more features, an even more impressive sonic performance, and has a smaller price-tag
  • Cons: Still limited to O2, some will be disappointed that the camera hasn', t been improved, will undoubtedly lose some chic-appeal as it becomes inevitably ubiquitous

Apple iPhone 3G review

Pocket Lint
11 July 2008
  • Excerpt: So the mobile phone everyone has been clawing for since the launch of the last iPhone is here. But it is any good? Is it an improvement on the first version and has the time finally come for the Apple to dominate the mobile phone industry like it has the MP3 player market? We get dialling to find out. Bulbous is one way to describe the new back.
  • Pros: 3G, GPS inclusion, App Store, interface
  • Cons: No improvement on the camera, O2's 3G coverage not great, no search in email, no "read all", no cut and paste, GPS fiddly to use
