"Great features, disappointing performance"2.5 starson by doliversmith
Pros: Beautiful screen, great apps from app store, amazing list of features
Cons: SHORT BATTERY LIFE!!! Mediocre camera, poor reception
Summary: I was hoping that the 3G would improve on some of the shortcomings of the original iPhone: short battery life, bad camera, no video, bad reception with dropped calls. Instead, it is worse... I don't use my phone all that much and I cant even make it through the day on a charge! I am even keeping the screen at 50% brightness, keeping push and bluetooth off, and it still sucks.
Now don't get me wrong... as a device, this thing is amazing... it can store and play a ton of music, show your photos, play games, connect to the internet, function as a GPS device with map function... the list goes on and on! But as a phone, don't count on it... I will need to get a backup phone to keep with me for when this one goes dead at the end of the day.
