Apple iPhone 3GS

Introduction Apple iPhone 3GS.

As you might have anticipated, the Apple iPhone 3GS is likely not the next revolutionary iPhone. But the efficiency boost, the sharper video camera and the allegedly enhanced battery life make the present iPhone (3GS or whatever it’s called this year) a much more balanced smartphone, one that you might wave more proudly in front of your geeky colleagues. Well, you would still get the chilling look of disapproval, but at least you’re not going to feel as ashamed as you used to.

The reality about the iPhone is this-perhaps around 20 million individuals around the globe have been cited as giving in to the iPhone temptation since the frenzy began. Now, two years later, the rest of the modern world is sick to death to hear about it all.

The iPhone (3G, Iphone) lineup has just got its recent descendants, once groundbreaking, but still as contentious and inspirational as ever. Meet the 3GS iPhone, where “S” can mean a lot of things, but it covers everything you need for “Speed.”

 

iPhone 3GS advantages over iPhone 3GS:

  • A faster 600MHz CPU and double the RAM at 256MB.
  • Noticeably faster performance.
  • Faster network speeds of HSDPA 7.2Mbps.
  • 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera with VGA@30fps video recording, touch focus with subject.
  • tracking, macro mode from as close as 10 cm.
  • Double the storage space – 3GS is selling in 16GB and 32GB versions.
  • Digital compass with automatic map orientation in the Maps app.
  • Better audio quality (as recorded and analyzed in our office).
  • Louder loudspeaker results (with performance gains primarily in music playback).
  • Purportedly better battery life.
  • Oleophobic display coating supposed to make fingerprints easier to clean.
  • Voice Control, speaker-independent. Can be used to call a phone number, play music by song/album/artist name, shuffle music.
  • Built-in support for Nike+ jogging system.
  • TV-out outputs 480p instead 480i resolution.
  • A text-to-speech feature called VoiceOver is included in the new Accessibility menu.
  • System-wide Screen Zoom is also included in the Accessibility menu

Main disadvantages of iPhone 3GS (OS disadvantages not counted here):

  • The new iPhone 3GS lacks the same novelty factor as its predecessors – the lack of design changes is a turn-down.
  • 3-megapixel camera with limited feature set hardly cuts it for a high-end device.
  • There’s still no flash or hardware shutter key for the camera.
  • Despite the upgrade, battery life is still generally miserable (2-year old iPhone 2G are again doing way better).
  • No video calls functionality.
  • No FM radio.
  • No stereo speakers (or are we pushing it too far already?).

Unboxing Of Apple iPhone 3GS:

Apple is still using the same iPhone 3GS boxes. At least, on the box, it tells 3GS-a sign not found on the iPhone itself.

The box’s contents are a relatively standard issues-a USB cable, a charger that utilizes this very cable to charge the phone, and a couple of headphones. You’ll also get some Apple stickers to announce your brand loyalty proudly.

Once again there is no docking desk (it was there with the iPhone 2 G), and there is no cleaning cloth (it was there on both the iPhone 2 G and 3 G).
