Another key feature in this model is the new camera. This has always been one of the iPhone’s greatest weaknesses, so Apple clearly had to do something to address this issue. The iPhone 3GS is now equipped with a 3Mp camera rather than the 2Mp job found on the previous models.

Given how much the 3GS costs, Apple really should have gone to 5Mp - there are plenty of other phones that boast this and higher resolutions. That said, we found the iPhone’s image quality to be pretty good – sharp and detailed and with strong colours.

The autofocus feature works well, immediately locking onto any object it detects within a targeting rectangle in the centre of the camera’s preview screen. However, you can also ‘tap to focus’ on any object or person within the scene to quickly bring the focus to the foreground or move it further out to the background.

We were disappointed to see that the photos we transferred onto our Mac were shot in 4:3 aspect ratio – despite the widescreen preview on the iPhone screen.
