iPhone 4G or 3GS

October 21, 2010

I'm a user of the first iPhone 2G. To be honest, I'm really satisfied with its performance. The only thing that made me sell my iPhone 2g, way way back, was when the next generation of iPhone 3G and 3GS was released.


I'm really upgrading my iPhone 2g to 3g but when the news went out that the iPhone 4g is on it's way... I decided to wait for awhile. Now, I'm torn between 2 lovers, err I mean.. generations.

Should I buy the 4G or the 3Gs?

Here's the side by side comparison:
