Early iPhone G3 Review: “Worth the Wait”

There have probably been a couple of other early reviews of the iPhone G3, but the most extensive one I’ve seen so far was posted last night at USA TODAY’s web site.  Edward Baig covers all of the big features and many of the lesser ones.  There is also a link to a video review.

UPDATE (3:10 p.m.)David Pogue and Walt Mossberg have also chimed in with some excellent reviews.

If you don’t want to go and read the entire article, here is a summary of Baig’s review at USA TODAY…

– “iPhone 3G: The Sequel, is worth the wait…  I reach that verdict after having tested the new iPhone for more than two weeks.”

– “But not all of iPhone’s early drawbacks have disappeared. You still cannot shoot video, take advantage of Bluetooth stereo or dial with a voice command. Such features are common on rival devices. (I’m hoping some shortcomings will be addressed by third-party developers.)”

– “Apple has improved overall audio quality of the device. The speaker phone sounded better, as did music played directly through the phone’s speaker.”

– “Though I wasn’t able to go through the process of downloading third-party applications through the new Apps store, it might turn out to be the most appealing new iPhone feature.”

– “While not everything on my wish list made it onto the new device, Apple has raised the bar with iPhone 3G. To which I offer an enthusiastic thumbs up.”

    My next-door neighbor stayed overnight outside the store just to buy it. It looks promising but then I’m just a texting consumer so don’t really need all those features.
