Just got mine this morning. I still had an original iPhone from 2 years ago. But there are actually two features that impressed me.
First, GPS is so freaking cool when your new to having it all the time in your pocket. The Compass will also help give me the excuse to be a true man and never ask for directions.
Second, the video camera is amazing! Quality is better than a $250 JVC SD Camcorder my mother in law just bought. The video feature was what helped me convince the wife that these were worth the money (she’s getting one too, her 1st.)
See we have a newborn little girl and we don’t have a video camera. Our Nikon D40 takes awesome “planned” stills. But for the cute, embarrassing, spontaneous, unexpected moments the iPhone 3G S’s camera is beyond perfect. We will always have our phones so there for we don’t have an excuse not to have video of her many first’s.
For us this feature made the new iPhone a no brainer.
