    I don't know whether I should buy a 3G. Does the battery last a lot longer with the 3G (compared to the 1G) while playing full 3D games like F.A.S.T. or when using Wi-Fi, or is still pretty crappy like before?

    The 1G, IIRC, only had 20 hours battery life. The 3G has 30 hours. There should be quite a difference in battery life.

    Not to mention that the batteries used in iPods degrade over time - if you've had your Touch since the 1G's launched, you could have much less than the 20 hours that it got when new.

    True, but it's a basic comparison. The 3G will have better battery life regardless, as his 1G's battery has likely degraded quite a bit, unless he's strict with how he charges it. Proper charging will keep the battery going strongly longer.

    My 1G used to have pretty good battery life, than when I upgraded to 3.0, it went down a lot.

    Now I have the 3g, and I tested the battery life. I ran a full charge, with the brightness cranked, playing a multiplayer game on Wifi, and the battery life is definitely longer than my 1G with 3.0 had.

    The 3g will last significantly longer. I guarantee it.

    The 2G has more battery life than the 3G.
