iPhone 3G S: Screen is Big; Unusable

There seems to be a large amount of people who bought the iPhone 3G S that have problems with the unit magnifying the screen 2X making the graphics huge.

Apparently this is a feature with the iPhone. You may have accidentally enabled the zoom feature by double tapping it with 3 fingers. To undo it, simply double-tap on the screen again with 3 fingers and the screen will go back to normal and eliminate the magnification.
