There is no time to waste buying it. It has most features which can be used on a normal day. Great picture quality by the camera is exceptional. Buy iPhone 3GS if you want internet speed. Don’t bother about the overheating. It only comes after long hours of usage. It is difficult to differentiate between iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G. On the market, check out the back.iPhone 3GS has a glossy plastic text written at the back and matches the Apple icon whiles 3G has a simple grey text. See the picture below.
