    3GS has-

    a faster processor

    capable of higher data speeds

    voice control.

    compass (which add more for GPS)

    More RAM. 256MB

    Oleophobic screen (resists smudge oil, easily wipes off)

    Better graphics

    3.0 MP camera and video recording

    The 3GS is worth the money over the 3G. Trust me, I've had/have both.

    Wow knowing all that I'm definately getting the 3GS. Now I have to justify the additional $100.00 for the 32 gig lol

    I justified it with the re-sell value. I don't use mine for media, but when it's time to sell it, I'll get a lot more

    Well two things if you ever want to sell it or if you like apps and movies 32 gig is the way to go. You can't expand the memory so it's always better to be safe then sorry.

    Yea I had the Black 3G and now the White 3GS and I like it much better. White doesn't show as much on it (like scratches, fingerprints, etc...).

    I like the white too! See and I would've thought that the Black showed less. One thing I do agree the black one looks better in certain cases for the phone.

    Graphics are the same, it's the faster processor that allows for better graphic performance.

    Actually, the 3GS supports OpenGL ES 2.0 whereas the 3G only supports ES 1.1

    There's alot of videos displaying the differences.. such as bump mapping, HDR, etc.

    tap tap tap ~ iPhone 3GS blows away iPhone 3G in 3D

    "As Daniel noted in his article, the graphics processing unit (GPU) in the 3GS is a PowerVR SGX, which seems to offer a very significant advantage over the PowerVR MBX Lite found in previous iPhone/iPod touch hardware. "
