Apple iPhone


Hey did you hear? Apple came out with a mobile phone. Of course you heard—the only way you could've avoided the iPhone hype machine was to move to Antarctica, shut yourself in an igloo, and avoid all contact with other humans. But in case you've just...

Great call quality; Visual Voicemail; gorgeous multitouch touchscreen; best iPod ever

No 3G; no Flash; no 3rd-party apps yet

The iPhone is far from the savior of mobile phones—third-party developers are restricted to simple AJAX web apps, firmware hacks are wiped out after each update, and the fixed battery has sparked litigation. But there’s also the innovative multitouch...

Apple iPhone Part V - The Verdict


We're here to tell you whether or not the iPhone is all it's cracked up to be or just another phone!!

The thing is though, the iPhone makes even the most mundane applications look good. The Bluetooth issue could be just a problem with this one piece, we can give it that. But the lack of some of the most basic of features in a device 'so politely'...

Apple iPhone Part 1 - Design And Interface


The iPhone is simply a sexy looking mobile with an easy-to-use interface.

Buttons at your Fingertips Let me just say, I truly am a big fan of this new fangled touch screen interface. It’s simply brilliant. It’s extremely easy to use and the large clear screen only accentuates the usage with decent sized icons and options....

Among those who queued up on June 29 to buy an iPhone were several of our editors; we have been putting it to the test ever since.

Innovative design Good mobile Web browser

Expensive No third-party non-Web apps (like Word)

So should you buy an iPhone? Sure, if you want to own a beautifully designed phone/Internet device/music player and are willing to put up with some occasionally exasperating problems. Everyone else, especially those who already rely on a PDA phone for...

The iPhone is the ultimate iPod and delivers an amazing Internet experience, but it's not the best smart phone.

Gorgeous 3.5-inch screen ; Intuitive touch interface ; Excellent Safari browser ; Sharp camera ; Superb Google Maps and YouTube apps

Slow browsing over EDGE network ; Mediocre call quality ; Touch keyboard not as good as physical QWERTY ; Nonremovable battery ; Nonstandard 3.5mm headphone jack

Apple iPhone (8GB)


Imagine the future with us: It's a crisp mid-January morning in San Francisco. The year: 2008. Evening clouds and haze are beginning to burn off, promising a typically comfortable day by the bay. Inside the Moscone Center, Steve Jobs, dressed in his...

3.5-inch touch screen; quad-band world band EDGE; 2MP camera; WiFi; full Mac OS X

No 3G HSDPA compatibility; no wireless iTunes connectivity or downloads; no external memory card slot; no stereo Bluetooth

Apple's iPhone is a huge leap forward in mobile gadgetry.

Apple iPhone (4GB, AT&T)


Editors' note, July 11, 2008: This is the review of the original first-generation iPhone model, released June 2007. Coverage of the 3G iPhone model released July 11, 2008 is available here . Editors' note, July 16, 2009 : We have lowered the rating of...

The Apple iPhone has a stunning display, a sleek design, and an innovative multitouch user interface. Its Safari browser makes for a superb Web surfing experience, and it offers easy-to-use apps. As an iPod, it shines.

The Apple iPhone has variable call quality and lacks some basic features found in many cell phones, including stereo Bluetooth support and 3G compatibility. Integrated memory is stingy for an iPod, and you have to sync the iPhone to manage music content.

Despite some important missing features, a slow data network, and call quality that doesn't always deliver, the Apple iPhone sets a new benchmark for an integrated cell phone and MP3 player.

Apple IPhone Rocks, Rolls, and Doesn't Disappoint


You've got to hand it to Apple: Not only has the company orchestrated one of the most anticipated and overhyped product launches in gadget history, it has also

Elegant yet sturdy design. Innovative interface is not only functional, it's a blast to use. More features than you know what to do with. Excellent calendar and contact management. Seamless integration with your computer. Full-fledged browser and email...

AT&T’s EDGE network is laughably slow. Limited music volume. Won’t work with standard headphones. Text-entry is slow compared with two-thumb QWERTY phones. Browser lacks Flash and Java support. Camera doesn’t work well in low light. Limited...
