Apple iPhone 3GS Multimedia Review Video

In the Multimedia department, we can witness an overall improvement in the 3GS with loading times alone. The increased speed performance and response times make loading applications so much quicker. This is also made evident when ‘powering on’ the phone. Many advancements these days are mainly about ‘speed’. I mean having to wait for electronic devices to boot up is such a drag!

We also see a slight upgrade with the 3GS Camera which now packs 3.2 megapixels with auto focus and white balance features that can be controlled by tapping the screen. We thought there may have been an extra couple of megapixels included, but obviously Apple needed to prioritise improvements as they saw fit. However the extra 1MP or so still produces images that are crisp and balanced so thats a big thumbs up for snap happy campers. The Apple iPhone 3GS now captures video and can record in VGA resolution at 30 fps. It also includes video geo-tagging and at these specifications, we were reasonably impressed by the quality of recording footage produced.

The Audio quality in the earlier iPhone 3G was very good and the 3GS is no different. If anything, it appears that its actually improved slightly, but nonetheless, delivers an exceptional sound experience for a mobile phone. In a weird sort of way Apple have shot themselves in the foot, why do you need an iPod now when the 3GS can produce such good audio quality?

We have the speed, we have great audio, a decent camera and pretty good video in my opion (.MOV file format mind you), but what we don’t have is enough time to enjoy it! Apple promised improved battery life and although we didn’t get to play with the 3GS as long as we hoped to, the additional battery life was not made obvious. Pity, cause if there’s one thing that annoys me, it’s having to recharge a battery frequently when playing with all the cool applications on a mobile phone.
