Comments (17)

Out with the old, and in with the new, as the saying goes - something Apple has obviously embraced, as they've turfed out the first generation iPhone, and replaced it with the 3G iPhone on their site. There's no mention of the previous model whatsoever, however we luckily knew all the specs anyway, so read on below for a comparison of the two phones...

2G: 115mm high, is 61mm wide and 11.6mm thick, weighs 135g.
3G: 115.5mm high, 62.1mm wide and 12.3mm thick, weighs 133g.

2G: 480 x 320 3.5" multi-touch display.
3G: 480 x 320 3.5" multi-touch display.


2G: 8GB and 16GB.
3G: 8GB and 16GB, with the latter available in both black and white.

2G: 2.0-megapixel camera.
3G: 2.0-megapixel camera, with geo-tagging and third-party application integration.

2G: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth.
3G: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G internet connectivity.

2G: None.
3G: Yes, assisted GPS.

Battery Life

    Well, since the newest iOS 4.3 Update, the 3GS has all the capabilities (multitasking, homescreen wallpaper, etc.) that the iPhone 4 has. The only thing the iPhone 4 has on the 3GS is the retina screen, a pinch of extra raw power, and a front oriented camera, but the 200 dollar price tag scares people off. That's why apple put the 3GS as 50 dollars, just to get more sales from the people who didn't care about the iPhone 4's extra features.

    There are some stupid people who don't know if they should but the iPhone 2G, 3G or 3GS. Of course you should buy the 3GS, because it's the newest. Why would they make a new version that's worse than the one before?

    Now the iPhone 4 is released. The iPhone 4 is less durable because of the glass... So don't drop it. It has many better features than the iPhone 3GS.
