Iphone 3GS Or Iphone4?

[ Edited ]

I was never into the Iphone until now,  I can upgrade and I really want one, Which one is better? I could get the 3GS for 49 bucks or I could save up money and get the 4. Which one do you have and do you like it?

You're going to be stuck with it for 2 years. I would get the newest one, with the most storage.

 

That, and the iPhone 4 is WAY better than the 3GS. Way.

Another + is battery life on the i4 is much improved over the 3GS...my experience is it's nearly twice as good.

If money is an issue, then a smartphone in general is not for you.

 

You can get a refurb iPhone 4 16GB for as low as $79.  That is a better value.

I was with verizon for 10 years and wasn't interested in the iphone until about 6 months when the Iphone4 came out. I wanted to check out all the android phones and decided nothing is better than the iphone4 in my opinion.

Although the 3GS is cool and is still at high value right now, I would get the iPhone 4. They've much improved the battery life, and how could anyone turn down two cameras? Smiley Wink

Re: Iphone 3GS Or Iphone4?

I had a similar predicament, do I spent 50 bucks for some iphone love right now, or wait and save up money for an iphone 4. It boiled down to this, do I wanna drop 50 bucks now and get some iphone love, or save up the money and get an iphone 4, when in a few months after I saved the money the iphone 5 came out. I chose the 3gs, I can live with a lower resolution screen and a camera with no flash. The 3gs still performs like a champ.

Re: Iphone 3GS Or Iphone4?

It depends on your needs. Since I am retired, and only use my iPhone for my calendar, contact list and a few games (and of course the phone,) $49 made more sense to me. I figure that in two years the iPhone 5 or 6 will be available, and I will be able to upgrade to a 4 for the same $49. Doesn't bother me that I am a couple of years behind, but only you can make the call about features, speed and cost.

Don't get me wrong, I love my iPhone 4, but my 3gs had better reception. The camera & screen resolution on the 4 are better, but I miss the great reception I had on the 3gs.
