iPhone 3G vs HTC Magic

A friend has offered me his old iPhone 3G for £80 all-in and I'm in two minds whether to buy it. I currently use a HTC Magic (rooted, 2.1) but tempted by the iPhone. Would I notice much difference in speed etc, and is it worth it? Thanks guys

don't get the new iphone OS4 but i'd go for the iphone purely for a new experience (if you don't like it you could always sell it on and not be at a loss)
Its a very good price for iphone 3g.As long as it is in working condition you could even get the phone and then recyle it for 150+.

Defianalty buy it in my opionion even if you recyle it stright away you would make some money.
yeah tis working fine, a lil bit scratched but otherwise okay... so you reckon it's a goer?
It's worth buying at that price, as said already you'll make a profit if you decide you don't like it.
thanks guys, just got to have another look at it now

Definantly buy it !
has anyone had any experience with the 3G itself? I'm worried about the speed because all the reviews are from 2 years ago
Iphone can't be compared with HTC magic. Its on OS X (most advanced software based on apple's machintosh operating system). HTC is on Google's Android. If u can use all of Iphone's features, its a great machine. Iphone 3g is really good, although it is not as fast as 3GS. But if you are getting it for £80 its a good bargain. You wont even get an Ipod touch for this price. So its worth considering.
Note: Although Iphone as most rivals now, the concept of touch screen and the great user interface was first introduced by Apple. Everyone else followed it. It's easy to follow any technology, but hard to reach it.
thankies :) but on a really pedantic point, android has been in development since 2005, two years before the release of the first iPhone... but I see your point :)
lol..thats right.. but I believe Iphone OS (currently called IOS) is released in 2007, which should have given apple atleast 3-4 years to develop, so they should have started developing IOS way before google!! But, all apple did was used its OS X(released in 2002) and created a touch interface for iphones.:) neway, its good that you got to experience two of the best phone operating systems. I still believe £80 is a really good deal for an used iphone 3.

good luck..

And they cant even manage to design a phone that you can hold any way you want? :p

Oh, I am not an apple fanboy!!

You sure?
