The iPhone 100% changed the way I go about dealing with my day-to-day life. I have access to everything from the touch of my fingers and my software never fails me! I will upgrade soon though to the iPhone 4s as I know it is 100% worth it! (read more)

Love the llook, great graphics and very interactive screen. I was a bit nervous about the touch screen texting, but it was the easiest thing in the world, in two days i got proficient at it. its great for taking photos, and short films, and a great source of entertainment for my baby when we're in the car and she's bored. i expected the battery life to last longer though. fast phone, as well. in terms of price I got the phone through a contract so it ends up being quite expensive, but i...

this phone is useless when compared to something like a samsung galaxy s2. I hate the way apple are going, restricting what you can and can't do on their devices and still charging you a fortune for nothing. If you are still buying iphones, you are a brand slave!! (read more)

I really like the iPhone, it is really easy to use, and everything you need like a calendar, calculator, calls and photos are all there in front of you. Although I do have to say that if I had the choice, I would easily trade mine in for the iPhone 4. (read more)

since I bought the iPhone 3G (brand new £400) the headphones that came with it started to crackle after a month. when I bought some new apple 3G aproved headphones i found music to fast forward & i had to restart the phone. I bought another set & did the same thing, only official apple ones worked ok (poor/average sound quality & overpriced at £20) apparently this is a fault with the 3.5 jack on some of them. when I contacted apple I was told they wouldnt respond but thank you for the...

Much as I love Apple products for their ingenious design styling, I am disappointed with the Iphone. Not just the battery life, but the number of dropped calls. Frustrating if you're discussing an important detail with a client! I'm still going to upgrade to the Iphone 4 in the hopes that the battery life has been improved (read more)

The iPhone 3G is a great phone even though people are raving about the iPhone 4. The 3G is pretty good. I have spilled soda on the iPhone 3G and dropped it a million times and it hasn't broke. This fascinating phone hasn't dropped any of my calls and got good reception. The Phone is pretty light and fast. There are many apps that you can buy, but it comes with Safari, iPod, Setting, Notes, Clock, Map, Calendar, Calculator, App Store, YouTube, Contacts, Mail, iTunes, Phone, Camera, Messages,...

I love my Iphone 3G. Got it shortly after it was released here in the UK and it's still going strong. Battery still lasting as it did, no software issues (like I had with previous phones), everything just seems to work.
I use a mac at home so when I run a sync, everything seamlessly integrates. It's phenomenal.
These are notorious for being quite sensitive and breaking easily. I completely disagree with this as my 2 year old plays games, opens & listens to music and videos on this and... (read more)

I brought the iphone 3Gs from Vodafone in January as soon as it was released to contract customers,and without a doubt save for still trying to get use to texting, its the best phone I have ever had and used. Its user friendsly, fast processer for a portable smart phone and the apps available are fantastic. Its easy to see why Apple lead the way in mobile telecoms and all the other brands such as Nokia although excellent in themselves (I do like Nokias)they just dont compare to the style and...

Apple has built it to step-up ahead the performance of the phone. It is faster for tasks executed like launching apps, loading web pages, and rendering of graphics. Apple makes iPhone 3GS 2 x faster and responsive from iPhone 3G.
iPhone 3GS introduces a hands-free feature called the Voice Control. By pressing and holding onto the Home button, called out to the name or just the title of the song which you wish to speak to or hear.
Another plus point for iPhone 3GS is the new introduction... (read more)

I love the iphone, it has almost everything I need and looks great. I have recommended this phone to others and even those who do not go for techy phones have started swaying, thats how good this phone is.
The only downside I can see is lack of certain business uses e.g. at my work place we have an online calendar that you can subscribe to via .ics files. The iphone doesn't work with this and other business phone users such as Blackberry work fine. My line manager who will be approving... (read more)

No doubt the Apple iPhone was game changer when it came out. I too was entranced by the hype machine and wanted an iPhone and to be honest, with good reasons......in places.
I say "in places" mainly because there are some major things that bring the iPhone down in my opinion, but first lets cover the good.
1) It's a beautifully crafted device
2) The screen is fantastic
3) The touch interface is the best out there
4) The ease at which you can buy/download applications is... (read more)

So I love my iPhone and I couldn't live without it all things considered. I used to carry around a Blackberry and a mobile which wasn't an ideal situation. Add in the fact that I also carted around an iPod and a camera and the pockets were getting crowded. The iPhone gets rid of that dilemma for average everyday situations (I would still always take a camera on holiday or to a party for example). So it's already got lots going for it.
The more I use the iPhone the more I find new things to... (read more)

I bought an iPhone 3G from Italy where they come factory unlocked. At first I was very impressed. I simply inserted my UK 3-Network SIM card and I could use my free minutes and Internet allowance (I have heard rumours that 3-Network have now stopped this, hope it's not true).
I was totally blown away by the amazingly smooth graphics, and the contents that was available on the App Store (including some very cool free apps).

I've had the 3g for a few months now and I still can't put it down. The screen quality and usability are second to none. Initially the qwerty keyboard was a bit fiddly, but after some practice even my fat thumbs type fast. The few limitations it does have are being addressed in version 3.0 of apples firmware which will finally complete this outstanding device. The safari browser is superb in which I'm currently writing this review. My last phone was a nokia n95 8gb which redoubtably had a... (read more)

The iphone's is undoubtedly a good phone but the best feature in my opinion is the accessibility of the internet in terms of speed of connectivity and quality of web pages displayed. The web page expand-reduce functionality is really clever and useful. The only real reservations I have are that if, like me, your fingers are not pencil thin then using the touch screen can be a bit frustrating as the keys are very close together. Also, the camera quality is not that good, but I gather this... (read more)

Overall, a great piece of kit, but I think anyone looking at it objectively will admit that it has it's faults. For me, the godd points o the iPhone 3G outweigh the bad by a mile, but if you want to just make calls and take pictures you can do better. For me the thing I love most is the App that allows me to programme my Sky HD box to record when I am out of the house - incredibly easy to use and works every time. (read more)

I received my iphone 3G a week ago now. Having been an iphone 2G user I had great expectations. It was a mistake to set my iphone 3G expectations too high as it isn't much different. Its only marginally quicker (when 3G is available) and you do get the added benefit of GPRS. The GPRS could have been so much better if they added some basic sat nav functionality.
I used the iphone GPRS the other day whilst on foot in Manchester. It got really confused when the street density became high.... (read more)

I'd been waiting for the Apple iPhone for months. I even borrowed a friend's old non-3G phone to try it out.
As an O2 select customer, I was able to upgrade three months early. With eager anticipation I walked into my nearest O2 store and demanded "Upgrade me to the 16 GB 3G iPhone NOW!!!" - well, almost.
With hands trembling and mouth watering, I took possession of the most eagerly awaited phone ever. I've had a couple of days to put it through it's paces and so here goes...
