iPhone 3G 8GB Review
By Blake Sanders on March 1st, 2010The Apple iPhone 3G 8GB is the next generation iPhone; this mobile phone is a little differently designed, plus it has a lot of new features. With the new iPhone 3G 8GB you will have access to a faster wireless network, as well as Microsoft Exchange server email. In addition to these features, there is also support for a wide range of third party software. Although the 3G 8GB iPhone still does not have some of the basic features, it is definitely an improvement over the original mobile handset released from Apple.
One of the areas in which the Apple iPhone 3G 8GB seems to have issues is in call performance, having some problems with reception at times. The music and video quality of the 8GB iPhone 3G is fairly good so you will probably not have many complaints with these features.
There really isn’t a lot of difference in design from the original iPhone. The Apple iPhone 3G 8GB is a little thicker than its predecessor, this handset measures 0.48 inches thick, and is 5.5 inches X 2.4 inches and weighs about 4.7 ounces. This mobile comes with a 3.5-inch display with 480x320 pixels that provides brilliant color and sharp images. The home screen is much the same as the original iPhone.
Some of the new features you’ll find with the Apple iPhone 3G 8GB include support for 3G, as well as an upgraded GPS system. You also get more organization features, widgets, and support for YouTube. There is also notepad, visual voice mail, as well as threaded texting. You will also get full support for Microsoft Exchange server and it’s very easy to setup. Of course there is also WiFi, which is great.
The new Apple iPhone 3G 8GB offers a feature called MobileMe. This feature synchronizes from Mac's Mail, and Address Book, as well as iCal applications. There is also support for contacts, calendar appointments, and email messages, in addition to photos, and browser bookmarks.
With this new iPhone from Apple you have access to the application store. All that you have to do is click on iTunes store and you will be taken to the application store. You can look through the most popular applications, or search by category or name.
If you don’t already have an iPhone or would like to take advantage of a fast 3G network, the Apple iPhone 3G 8GB gives you lots of good reasons to buy now. It’s much improved over the original, with lots of features.
The only issues with the 3G iPhone 8GB is that the call reception can have problems, and the price is a little high.
