    OK, now we've had some time to play with our new toys I thought it'd be interesting to see what everyone's favourite new feature/thing is in the iPhone 3G S

    For me I'd have to say the speed increase is paramount for me, application opening times are just fantastic!

    Cool poll! But you forgot the oleophobic screen!

    I voted Speed Increase. That's waaaaay out in front with the silver lettering and oleophobic screen tied at a distant second.

    Storage for me - I went for the 32GB model as I outgrew the 16GB 3G, but the speed boost is a very close second.

    I have to say that the speed difference was BY FAR the first thing I noticed...the boot time alone is cut in half...this 3GS boots up in about 30 seconds...:D
    Also, the improved graphics chip makes a HUGE dif...

    Speed increase for me.

    The battery percentage indicator has made me paranoid/obsessive. I think I need to tun it off so I can go back to my normal life of not checking it every five seconds :(

    speed for me (not a drug request, :))

    camera and video are poor compared with competitors, but ok, everything else aces them.

    All of the new features, don't have one specific favorite. I upgraded from the original iPhone (skipped 3G.) So the GPS, 3G and speed improvements are great.

    Speed.

    Don't really have any use for the video recording/compass/increase in storage space.

    For me $399 for early upgrade was well worth the speed increase alone since I mainly use it for browsing internet/games.

    I carry 2 cell phones and use my blackberry for emails/texting/phone calls and use the iphone has a mobile internet device.

    Has anybody actually noticed an increase in battery life? Or are they just featuring a stronger battery that compensates for the increased processor speeds and gives you equal to weaker battery power than the 3G?
