iPhone 3G: How Different is it from the Original Model?

Aug 20, 2008
iPhones gained general popularity when all of the portable gadgetries came into the market limelight. For one, laptops, palm tops and iPods weren't that expensive anymore. People have gone beyond a certain polarization against technological advancements. Yet, all of these things have proven to be too many for all individuals to bring and to afford. With that, Apple Inc. came up with a brilliant invention that merged a computer, an iPod and a smart phone into one. This is, of course, the iPhone. Yet, in spite of the perfect performance of the iPhone, it still had some areas of improvement. This is the reason why the iPhone 3G came to be the innovation of the original iPhone.

The iPhone 3G is different from the original model in different ways. In this article, the iPhone 3G will be differentiated from its counterpart through several aspects like the memory, the battery life and the general differences.

For the original iPhone, its general memory before was only 4 gigabytes. Yet, this was immediately upgraded to 8 gigabytes two months after its release. It' overall size is only 4.5 in by 2.4 in by 0.46 in (height X width X depth). Its battery life only holds two hundred and fifty hours when in standby mode, twenty four hours of audio playing, seven hours of video playing, six hours of internet and eight hours of talk. The original phone's headphone jack is recessed.

An iPhone 3G, on the other hand has general upgrades that are altogether different from the original model. For one, the consumer may opt for two memory capacities, the 8 GB or the 16 GB phone. It also comes in either black or white. The dimensions of the original phone are same with the 3G except when it comes to the depth. This is so because the 3G is 0.2 in deeper. Yet, surprisingly, the 3G is two grams lighter than the original. It headphone jack isn't recessed and the battery life is well beyond the original's capacity. One may enjoy ten hours of 2G talk, five hours of 3G talk six hours of Wi-Fi, seven hours of video playing, twenty four hours of audio playing and three hundred hours of standby mode.

The 3G version is basically an upgraded version of the original iPhone. Yet, they share certain features that make the core of the phone. Both have ports like the Bluetooth 2.0 and an 802.11 b/g Wi-FI. The internal drives include an iPhone OS operating system, a flash storage memory of either 8 or 16 GB, and a 12 megabyte memory. Both the original iPhone and the iPhone 3G have the same screen size and resolution. The standard size of both phones measures at only 89 millimeter or 3.5 inches. The resolution is also uniform at 480 X 320 pixels wit a 3:2 screen ratio.

True enough, there are many things that separate the original phone from its iPhone 3G counterpart. This is especially true with the overall size of the phones, their weights, headphone jack ports and batteries.
