Screen contrast / Gamma
Got a new 3gs two days ago, upgrading from 3g. Overall - all is well, but one thing drives me crazy. When comparing to 3g side by side, the screen looks a little washed-out, lacking contrast and, what seems like, wrong gamma setting. The black on the background of the springboard is not the "blackest" black. When comparing, I've set the same brightness levels on both phones, and 3gs just appears to be more bright, with less contrast. Anybody else noticing this, or do I have a replacement candidate? Once again, this is pretty much noticeable only when comparing to 3g side-by-side. Normally the colors just look a bit washed-up.

Has anyone noticed that when you let the battery run down to 0% (3GS), it no longer shows the dead battery screen when you press the wake button? It definitely did this on the 3G, dunno about the 2G, and I even found somewhere in the 3.0 manual where it said it could take up to 10 mins. for the dead battery screen to show, and I've waited 20 and still nothing.

I love my phone about 90% of the time, but it's been pretty prone to crashing since day 1; it happens most often while in apps like TweetDeck, though it's also happened when in native apps (Messenger, Calendar). Usually, the app just crashes and I have to reload the app and re-enter whatever it is that I was working on, but at times the entire phone freezes and needs a reboot. I hate to think I'm going to have to take this gorgeous piece of tech in and have it replaced, but I don't see this as an issue a patch can fix.

The 3GS is my first iPhone but I was wondering if this was expected behavior:
I had 3G, WiFi and GPS on. Was using RunKeeper (which tracks you by GPS while exercising) and by the end of about a 40 minute run, the thing felt very hot. The hottest it has been so far. I'm wondering if it even messed with the InvisibleShield I'm using.
Another possibly important fact: I'm in Phoenix and it was probably 95+ degrees F at the time I was running in the early evening. Maybe that affected it also?

My camera app keeps freezing and when i look at photos if i try to scroll through them all the last few dont sharpen they just stay really blurry...is this typical? Sometimes when I try to turn it on it shows the play, rewind, fast button along with the unlocked slider. I usually have to restart to get it to all work right.

Battery life is the worst. My 3G never went dead. The 3Gs went totally out in my pocket. I returned it, the Genius bar folks told me it was in spec's but I had them replace it. The second one is about the same, I contacted Apple they said to return it. I don't know what to think because I love the phone, I don't want to go to something else because of the battery.

When my external speaker is turned up I have noticed quite a bit more distortion on my 3GS over my 3G. Songs, ringing and alerts all sound distorted at higher volumes. I have read that the 3GS has a more powerfull speaker, but I think they may have just overdriven the existing speaker, causing distortion. Any one else notice this?

Battery Problem with new 3GS from Apple Store
just got my new 3GS 32G last Friday.
Very cool toy, but I had to recharge fully 3 nights to get 3-4 hours total usage. Mostly wifi at my house. From a few dowloaded apps.
3G is Off.
I'm using a fake APN to disable "Edge" with Rogers.
Battery power went down quickly while phone was not in use.
Anyone seen this ?

Long answer: I would remove the fake APN tweak to see if that improves things, and any other tweak you may have added. Also, try resetting the device. If that does not help, then you should take the phone back and get it exchanged because it is defective.
Note: I have wifi, 3g, location services all enabled and screen brightness set to just a shade under the default, and I can get through a whole day of use without a problem, typically with 20% juice left at the end of the day. (I primarily use safari, the iPod and email most heavily, with the occasional game and lots of PIM and lengthy note-taking.) That's a significant improvement over my old 3G - at least 15% better, I would say.
