The 3G’s come equipped with a 600 Mhz ARM processor of the 3G. This processor contributed to the processing power that permits users to run applications without any perceptible lag or freezes. The radio has been upgraded in the 3G’s 3G can only accomplish 3G Mbps, the 3Gs can reach a maximum speed offered by the HSDPA technology, which is 7.2 Mbps.

This pace is the type of internet speed that supports faster browsing and downloads for 3Gs users who live in areas with HSDPA. The camera in the 3Gs is an improvement. It has no 3-megapixel sensor instead of a 2.0 megapixel. Apple also added video recording support and extra features, which is an improvement over the original.

IPhone 3G and 3Gs are two types of iPhone models that have since been discontinued. Like most iPhone generation models, there are minor differences between the two. They both are the same size and the iPhone 3G is slightly smaller in size than the iPhone 3Gs.

One difference between the two is the the speed of the processor. The iPhone 3GS has a faster processor with 600 MHZ. The iPhone 3G has a processor of 412 MHZ. Another difference between them is the amount of space each has. The 3GS has more space with 256MB, while the iPhone 3G has 128 MB.

As you would expect, one of the ways by which two mobile phones can be differentiated is by comparing their specs. Although both iPhone 3G and iPhone 3Gs look very similar, the only way to differentiate the two is by comparing their specifications. iPhone 3Gs is the newer of the two, which means more additional features should be expected. iPhone 3G and iPhone 3Gs come with different processors.

Unlike the 3G that comes with 412 MHz processor, iPhone 3Gs comes with 600 MHz ARM processor. The effect of this on the two mobile phones is that you can easily run applications smoothly without any problems. This is why iPhone 3Gs is regarded by many as a high-performance mobile phone.

According to Apple, the letter s in iPhone 3Gs represents speed. Unlike the 3G that has its maximum speed to be 3.6mbps, this goes up to 7.2mbps for the 3Gs. The 3Gs uses a 3.0-megapixel camera, whereas the 3G comes with a 2.0-megapixel camera.
