The Apple iphone 3GS 32GB is a good sized phone and, with the new screen it looks great. The touchscreen sensitivity is spot on and, having chunky fingers, texting and just general typing really is not an issue.
Having itunes and the App Store available is fantastic. It's no hassle searching and, downloads are easy. There are applications to suit all and they are as easy to remove as they are to install.
The real downside is the battery life. If you intend to use the applications on your phone a lot, then be prepared to charge the phone each and every day...maybe even more. I am a regular apps user so need to put my phone on charge whenever I return from work. Consider an extra, portable charger to take with you.
Having had my phone for about 6 months now, the other issue that has arisen (maybe down to OS updates) is the regular loss of wifi connectivity. This happens, even on my own network. It does rectify itself in time but is frustrating.
Overall, this is a good phone and I am yet to see any other 'smartphone' come close. I cannot give five stars because of the battery life issue but I would still recommend this phone.
