  • Excerpt: (1 items) In both hardware and software, the iPhone is a truly new creation. In the technology industry, we tend to call these "1.0 products," and many savvy consumers choose to wait until a second version arrives, presumably with the original version's bugs worked out. The iPhone certainly has room to grow, and there's no doubt that future versions will build on the impressive list of features in this initial product.
  • Pros: Built-in iPod functionality, Bright high-resolution screen, Elegant touchscreen interface, Impressive e-mail, Web, and phone features, Beautiful hardware, Wi-Fi networking
  • Cons: Only supports slower EDGE cellular data network, Text-messaging tool supports SMS but not iChat, No support for text selection, cut, copy, and paste, Inline headphone jack incompatible with many third-party headphones, Browser can't display Flash content, No support for stereo Bluetooth headphones, Limited Bluetooth support

  • Conclusion: It's the best portable media player ever. It's possibly the most fun we've ever had with a handheld device. It browses the Web like a champ. But poor phone call performance and missing messaging options make us unwilling to recommend it as a phone.
  • Pros: Fun new interface for navigating multimedia. Huge screen looks amazing. Terrific Web browser. Syncs well with PCs and Macs. YouTube function is great. Functions flow seamlessly into each other. Built-in speaker for voice calling and music.
  • Cons: Poor business e-mail and PIM connectivity. Bad audio quality on phone calls. Tons of "GSM buzz" on nearby speakers. Virtual keyboard hard to type on. No phone functionality with iPod speaker docks.

Apple iPhone 2.0

PC Magazine
21 May 2008
  • Conclusion: The App Store turns the iPhone and iPod Touch into a true smart phone platform, a portable computer capable of doing many different things. That alone is a reason to upgrade.
  • Pros: Hundreds of new applications available. Microsoft Exchange syncing makes the iPhone a viable business device. Many other small improvements.
  • Cons: Still doesn't have cut-and-paste, MMS, or applications that run in the background. Mysterious restrictions on App Store. Many apps feel very slow on EDGE.

  • Excerpt: For years, the Apple iPhone has been the standard against which other smartphones are measured. Granted, it gets a lot of ridicule for its hefty price tag and tightly controlled app ecosystem. Features like near-field communication, despite growing in popularity elsewhere, are conspicuously absent from Apple's devices. But the iPhone's superior design and easy-to-use interface make it worthy of praise.
  • Pros: The new iPhone 5s is the fastest smartphone ever made, and it packs one of the best mobile cameras around.
  • Cons: Its battery is atrocious compared to the competition, and it continues to lack expandable storage, near field communication and other features that have become commonplace in today's smartphones.

  • Summary: But there’s also the innovative multitouch touchscreen and sensible interface, the no-nonsense syncing and activating through iTunes, and the tough-as nails screen and case (our test iPhone remains scratchless). If you’ve waited this long, you might as well keep waiting—iPhone 2.0 is bound to be what the iPhone should’ve been in the first place. Note : When this issue went to press, Apple had not yet announced its SDK.
  • Pros: Great call quality; Visual Voicemail; gorgeous multitouch touchscreen; best iPod ever.
  • Cons: No 3G; no Flash; no 3rd-party apps yet.

Apple iPhone Review

7 August 2007
  • Excerpt: As a self-confessed techno-weenie, with a noted lack of impulse control, I purchased my 8 Gig iPhone from the Apple store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan three days after the launch day hype and madness. It took me all of fifteen minutes before I was back on the train with some really cool packaging to fiddle with. I must say that the ability to activate the phone at home using iTunes was the first pleasant surprise.

  • Excerpt: (2 items) Apple’s iPhone is a product that’s been years in the making. Apple’s designers have been working on it for years, and the Web has been buzzing about Apple’s entry into the phone market for just as long—or maybe even longer. But now, after six months of intense speculation since its introduction at Macworld Expo , the iPhone has arrived. Although the iPhone is not without a few quirks, it makes good on the hype that surrounded it.
