The Apple iPhone is one of the iconic brands in mobile phone industry and what better time to own one than now. This is because Apple has recently launched the Apple iPhone 4 and because of it has pushed back the Apple iPhone 3GS in terms of interest amongst people. However, one cannot deny the fact that the iPhone 3GS still remains one of the best iPhone’s and in terms of reliability, it is certainly better than the current iPhone 4. Apple are still selling the iPhone 3GS and because of the iPhone 4 popularity, you can get a brand-new iPhone 3GS with various deals.
The Apple iPhone 3GS is no match for the Apple iPhone 4 in terms of looks. However, where it can challenge is in the features department and one really has to say that there is not much difference between the new iPhone and the old iPhone. Yes, the new iPhone supports multitasking, but that is down to the operating system rather than the phone itself. Hence, by receiving the small upgrade, you can also get multitasking feature in the iphone 3GS. This coupled with the reliability makes it the ultimate iPhone to have currently. The Apple iPhone 3GS features a 3.5 inch display that can support multi-touch like many the phones. It has a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, which is good enough for viewing all webpages and movies.
Initially, the iPhone 3GS came with iOS 3.0, but Apple has provided customers with the option to upgrade it to the latest iOS 4.0. After doing it, you will be able to enjoy the option to create folders. This is a feature that has been appreciated by many since it eliminates the unnecessary cluster of icons in the home screen. The upgrade to the latest operating system is possible because the phone runs on ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz that is helped by the PowerVR SGX535 graphics processor. Both these powerful processors take care of all the issues remotely connected to lagging. This ensures the perfect mobile phone operating system and hardware matching. The only area where the iPhone 3GS lags behind the latest iPhone 4 is the camera department and you only get a 3.2 megapixel camera.
This is a pretty Spartan camera and you have to learn to live with it. If you are not the kind of person who uses the camera a lot, then the 3.2 megapixel unit will be more than sufficient for you. Like many Apple iPhone’s previously, the iPhone 3GS comes with three different memory options and these range from 8 GB to 32 GB. Now though, the Apple iPhone 3GS is sold only the 8 GB memory option. The price of the phone is £428 in the Apple store and it is incredible that you can buy an iPhone or this price. If you scupper on the Internet, you can also get the Apple iPhone 3GS for even cheaper prices, which will make the deal extra sweet.
