Apple iPhone 3GS
Brilliant Design meets Elegant Interface
Since its release in 2007, the revolutionary iPhone has managed to corner a significant portion of the market. Each successive iPhone model has sported exciting new features that have solidified its brand appeal.
Year after year the iPhone manages to maintain a comfortable familiarity and pleasant consistency that longtime users appreciate, while iOS is undoubtedly the most intuitive mobile operating system in existence.
Performance-wise, the iPhone falls notoriously short when compared to other smartphones in its price bracket with a slower processor, less battery life, lower-resolution screen, and a less sophisticated camera. However, though the iPhone might be slower on paper Apple has managed to design a sleek, brilliant smartphone that feels great and never fails to perform.
The iPhone has been available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB configurations and has remained a solid smartphone choice for nearly a decade.
From the Apple initiate to the technically savvy, all will enjoy the elegant interface, beautiful design, and intuitive nature of the iPhone.
