iPhone 3GS

Created: 07/10/10
The iPhone 3GS (16gb), has sparked mixed opinions within me, however the verdict stays the same. It is a good phone.

It is simple to use, effective, fun, useful for all kind of people and tasks. For example I have a bass guitar tuning app and a cycling app (which measures distance, time, speeds etc). So the iPhone really is in a league of its own. However, it does have some issues which stopped this phone getting the five star rating.

1) It has bad signal problems. For some reason, the signal would go from full to no service for a few moments, and as you can imagine, it is very frustrating when you are trying to send a text, in the middle of a call or browsing the web.

2) After a period of time, the phone software will start to degrade and it will begin to 'lag'. At certain times my iPhone has become unresponsive to all touch screen and button commands for a period of time. Again, this can be very frustrating.

3) The screen cracks way too easily. It only takes a few knocks before you have an unattractive crack across your screen. Linked to this is the shape. The iPhone 3GS has a smooth and rounded finish, which doesn't help in the not letting it drop out of your hand department. So a rubber or leather cover would definitely be desirable if you are prone to the dreaded drop.

4) The battery life is pretty poor on such an expensive phone. Providing you don't crazy on apps or music, it will last through the day with you sending texts and making the odd phone call. A nifty trick i have learnt for anyone who has already got one is, if you double press the home key, you will see the applications which are running in the background, simply press and hold any icon and you will get the option to delete the ones you don't want running. This will save precious battery life.

5) This isn't so important, but I don't agree with the principle that you have to have iTunes to put music and other media onto your iPhone. Some people don't have iTunes and wouldn't find it more convenient to use the simple *Drag and drop* method on the pc. Plus, iTunes isn't the most of friendly of software, the syncing process can be quite complicated if you have never done it before, and a technophobe will definitely be put off.

Other than the five points listed above, this is a good phone and extremely useful in everyday life. If you are looking for a phone just to browse the internet, send texts and make and receive phone calls, this is not the phone for you. However, if you are after a phone that provides more than just a communication service, with the ability to assist, entertain and amuse, then this should definitely be your next phone.

Hope you enjoyed my review
