"The Apple iPhone 3G offers critical new features including support for high-speed 3G networks, third-party applications, and expanded e-mail. Its call quality is improved and it continues to deliver an excellent music and video experience."
"The iPhone 3G continues to lack some basic features that are available on even the simplest cell phone. Battery life was uneven, and the 3G connection tended to be shaky. Also, the e-mail syncing is not without its faults."
"The iPhone 3G delivers on its promises by adding critical features and sharper call quality. The iTunes App Store is pretty amazing, and the 3G support is more than welcome. Critical features still are missing, and the battery depletes quickly under heavy use, but the iPhone 3G is a big improvement over the original model."

Apple’s release of the iPhone 3G was a response to many of the fallbacks from the first generation iPhone. Many little bugs and user requested applications have been added to the iPhone 3G making it even more functional and user-friendly than its predecessor. The new generation is only 0.7mm thicker than the old one, considering the hefty upgrades on the hardware – not to mention, it is actually 2 grams lighter.
With the new iPhone 3G, Apple managed to keep the same amazing touch screen interface that is just jaw dropping as to how accurate and easy-to-use it is. It still has the button on the top of the phone to lock the screen and the home button below the touch screen that takes you back to the iPhone’s main screen.
There are, however, two different iPhone 3G models: an 8GB version and a 16GB version. The difference, you ask? There is no difference other than the storage capacity and a little surprise Apple added – the 16GB versions come in an optional white color, if desired. If you’re willing to cough up the extra $200 for having double the capacity and the unique white color, then the 16GB was made for you if you don't mind paying the price of a laptop but for the iPhone
The main thing that makes this iPhone different than its predecessor is 3G. 3G is a high-speed internet provided by AT&T that only some phones are capable of using. It’s relatively new and allows cell phone users who have 3G capabilities to surf the internet at near broadband speeds. The iPhone 3G boasts this ability to use the 3G network provided by AT&T which has helped expand its features, making everything faster, more reliable, and more accurate. Now that you know the main difference between the first generation iPhone 2G and the second generation iPhone 3G, let’s move onto the fun part of the iPhone – the features.
3G: As stated previouisly, 3G technology allows the iPhone to access the internet at higher speeds than the previous iPhone. This allows you to surf the internet, check e-mail, get directions, and watch video – even if you’re already on the phone. The old network the first generation iPhone used is called EDGE – the 3G network is 2.4 times faster than the EDGE network.
Multi-Touch Control: iPhone multi-touch technology almost seems way beyond it’s time. There is no other touch phone out there with this functional of a touch screen. It is extremely accurate and best of all, multi-touch – this means it can respond to more than 1 contact point on the screen.
GPS: Yes, we already did talk about the GPS but let’s go in depth to the technology behind it. The regular GPS we are familiar with uses information from satellites that orbit the Earth. The iPhone receives this data and estimates the distance to the GPS satellites based on how long it takes the signal to reach it. The iPhone’s A-GPS (Assisted GPS) takes it a step further than conventional GPS systems. iPhone will actually find the closest satellite to uplink to currently in orbit which allows it to more quickly identify your position. This gives you a faster fix on your location than with a conventional GPS system.
Accelerometer: iPhone is motion responsive. When you tilt it sideways, upwards, backwards, downwards – it knows. Many application designers have used this to their advantage in making fun accelerometer games.
