Hello, I've decided to see how others feel here about the state of the iPhone compared to the recent competition. I remember the months of nail-biting excitement in 2007 over the upcoming iPhone and all the things I'd be able to do. I can't say I was disappointed, it was by far better than the other phones I'd had up to that point and it was a joy to use. A year on, I purchased the iPhone 3G with almost as much excitement due to the availability of apps, a shiny new back cover and global positioning. Again, not let down, and with the introduction of copy and paste I found myself enjoying the iPhone more than ever. Then, last year the fantastic new iPhone 3GS arrived with little cosmetic difference to its predecesor, but boasting video recording, digital compass and higher resolution camera and most importantly a speed increase. I felt slightly let down by the lack of creativity applied to the design, but the features were fantastic and video looked much better than I had ever anticipated. The biggest drawback to the 3GS, in my opinion, was its lack of upgradability from the iPhone 3G in terms of what the networks were offering, plus I really couldn't justify paying the full price for a similar-looking device that was more powerful. So, I found myself making-do with my iPhone 3G as I am now. I don't regret purchasing a 3GS, although I find myself getting frustrated at the lack of response and feedback with the 3G, after all it is a touch-screen device, which should surely provide a fast response to any gesture. I know I should upgrade to a 3GS if I want my phone to be quicker and more responsive, but it's a bit of a Catch-22, in that I either make do with my slow iPhone 3G, upgrade to a 3GS now that my contact is up (but miss out on the next generation iPhone) or pay through the nose for the speed increase. Given that I, along with many others paid up-front for the iPhone and upgraded to the 3G when it came out, I feel a bit let-down that the support has gone unnoticed, and now I find myself bored and frustrated with the iPhone 3G. Given that I've been put in this position, I feel that I'd be letting myself down by handing over money to Apple for the next generation iPhone if it's little to sing and dance about. Instead, I wonder if it's better to look in to the purchasing an Android-based phone or other competing device on the market. I don't doubt that I'm in the minority here, but I'm interested to know if anybody else feels similarly to how I do. Thanks for your time.
