At Zapper, we’re always looking for the best retro tech we can get our hands on and we buy any good stuff that you have. That’s why we’re so excited to buy your iPhone 3GS 16GB, do you want to know why?
It’s because we’re big techies and the iPhone 3GS 16GB was the first phone to start the Apple vs Android hardware arms race. Inside is the first iPhone to have a ‘system-on-chip’ architecture. That chip features an ARM Cortex A8 that was underclocked to 600MHz down from 833MHz, the ability to underclock the phone and still be so fast is owed to the lightweight nature of iOS (iOS is consistently the most well optimised operating system of any in the market).Underclocking like this also has its benefits in battery life and phone longevity, as we can see now with some iPhone 3GS 16GBs still running like they did out of the box, a reason Zap per will give you even more money for your old phone. The chip also housed the latest GPU from PowerVR, the SGX535. This graphical processing unit powered the 163ppi screen with a 480 x 320 resolution. That’s pretty sharp for a phone of its time and still holds its own against modern-smartphones.
Not only that but with the recent release of the App Store, the updated 3GS needed a lot of RAM to be able to multitask. Apple took note and didn’t just increase the RAM by a bit, they doubled it. The RAM went from 256MB to a whopping 512MB.
So if you’ve got an old iPhone 3GS 16GB that isn’t getting the use it deserves, send it to Zapper today and get quick cash. We’ll also give you free postage when you sell your iPhone 3GS 16GB so don’t worry everything we pay you is profit.
