Review: iPhone 3GS
The iPod's functionality does not appear to be change or enhanced much at all. We were hoping that Apple would do something here, such as add a user-configurable EQ, but the controls, functions, and sound quality are the same.
Art this point, I have to say it's a little pathetic. I mean really, Apple, do you think the iPhone's music/media player is absolutely perfect as it is? It ain't. There are definitely some tweaks to be made that could improve it. Apple missed another opportunity to take things to a whole new level.
The one positive thing I'll say is that with the improved processor and RAM, CoverFlow works much better and smoother than it did on either of the two previous iPhones. Also, users can now scrub through music files at variable speeds while they are playing. This will help you jump through a 15-minute track faster if you want to "get to the good part" of a song.
