"iPhone 3G S ... Worthwhile?"

The good: "S" for speed in the name, certainly hold true!
Camera + Autofocus + Video Recording (Better than Jailbroken Video Recorders in my opinion)
Compass might be of some very good GPS and navigation use.

The bad: No multitasking
No Flash with the camera
No Flash for web browsing

Summary: I was always on the fence on whether to upgrade or not. So I waited, after hearing the never ending praise for the device, I decided to go ahead and get it.

First impressions:

The Screen is certainly a LESS of a fingerprint-magnet than it's predecessor. It isn't fingerprint-resistant.

Camera is somewhat better quality and the finger touch autofocus feature is very helpful. The ability to trim videos is a cool little feature. A flash would have made it perfect.

Speed: It is considerably faster than both the V1 and the 3G, a direct result of the increased RAM and the faster processor.

Web: Safari usually loads pages faster than before due to the new Java Nitro (i think!)

Find my iPhone: It sucks that you have to pay for it, but worthwhile none the less.

Was the $200 upgrade worthwhile? ... Ummm... Certainly a better phone but not worth the $200 or the inability to upgrade to the next one as soon as it comes out.

Here's to the hoping that the iPhone 2010 is a step ahead like the 3G was and not a mere RAM upgrade!
