Is 3g mobile better than 2g mobile?

The answer to this question depends on what specifically one is looking for in a phone. If one is to consider price alone, a 2g phone is definetely better since it tends to be cheaper. However, the 3g phone submits data at a higher speed, can support video-conferencing, has better audio and video streaming and even allows one to watch TV through the internet. If price is not a major factor, the 3g phone is better than the 2g phone.
