I haven't got one myself but they look highly clever, and smart. Tried on my friends and the ease of use is very impressive. Battery life isn't so good, but still good. If you don't want to be able to be on it 24:7 then this is the perfect phone for you! Hoping to get mine at the weekend!!

Have used both iPhone 3G and 3GS, I find them to be an awesome fashion accessory for the Apple crowd, which I am happily not one of!

Although its a superb design, the platform is stifled by the nannying application committee who don't allow any app they don't approve of to be used on it!

I personally have a Samsung i8910hd which I have chock full of wonderful Symbian apps, which are mainly freely available.

The hardware is far superior to Apples old hat 3GS, I have an 8 MP camera, with 720p HD video recording,a flash (where is that on the iPhone?), removable battery, and memory card expansion slot. Mine will soon be filled with a 33gb card when they are released next month!

All in all, the iPhone is for posers, I prefer proper technology personally!

iphone 8/10, Samsung 10/10!

I like the iPhone, but wonder where the future innovation will come from in user interface, I don't want this locked down OS to become the de facto standard.

The current king of mobile phones. The battery life could be better and the software is due an update but the iPhone still leads the pack. Stunning phone.

There are only a few improvements from the iPhone 3G. However, I do like the increased functionality and certain recommend, even current iPhone 3G users, to purchase the 16Gb version. There is no phone but iPhone! ;-)

I just had to go for the white on of these (to keep in with my G4 ibook) - slick, does just about anything you want it to and easy to use (even my technophobe mum wants one!)

I didn't believe the iPhone hype to be honest, I loved my iPod and didn't see how a phone could do the job better, and it's not really that it does do the job better, it's just that you can literally do everything with an iPhone and with the 3GS and a massive 32 GB at your fingertips, there isn't a close competitor!

What more could you actually want from a phone?

There may have been a few teething problems with the first edition iPhones, but anyone who says they're unreliable obviously hasn't gotten their hands on the 3GS yet, and with 32GB to play with - everyone will be more than happy!

This new release of the iPhone is a huge improvement on an already brilliant phone. The apps are great, the usability is great (my nan could use it, honestly!) and it looks sleek and super-cool. Two thumbs up for the iPhone!

It's the best of the touch screen phones I've used. Best thing about the iPhone is all the apps you can get and most of them are free.

No unnecessary QWERTY keyboard to weigh you down.
