CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    "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 BAD

    "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."

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    "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."

Hmmmm iPhone

First off how is everyone? Fine I hope. Okay so, ihave the iPhone and personally I LOVE it!!! I read previous reviews and Im not the type to feedoff negativity from others. Some reviews of his phone is ridiculous. I'm so tired of people compliankng about the battery life. Apparently if u use the phone for long hours or surf the net or listen to music then it's obvious the battery will drain. Also people complain about what the phone DOESNT do or doesn't have. First of all if u would really get in depth about the phone before purchasin then the small things shouldn't matter. I don't think anyone who complains aboeut the little things needs this phone. Anyway let me share y I love it.....

Beautiful big bright display
Easy touch sensitivity
Great web broweser
Camera takes beautiful picutures depending on lightening
iPod is awesome
Apps easy to install

iPhone Multi-Media Device

The iPhone has been subject to a wide array of reviews--from being touted as the Messiah of digital devices, to just another way for Apple to cash in. I don't believe either extreme is correct--or fair for that matter, but the phone and all of its functions make it lie somewhere in the middle.

I've found that most people who dislike the phone are either:
(1) Too accustomed to their hardware static keypad phones
(2) Don't give the touchscreen a fair try
(3) Require more 3rd party customization, namely for work
(4) Hate Apple and Apple products with a passion

After using touchscreen phones for the last 5 years, I can tell you, I can't go back to using hardware keypads. And as far as touchscreens go, Apple's created the most innovative touch-based device in the U.S. market (overseas is excluded). The way the software in the device act seamlessly together is just flat out amazing. People who try the phone for 30 seconds are generally left with a so-so "That's cool" impression. People who use it for 30 minutes usually have a "I gotta get me one of these" outlook. If they've been using one for 30 days, they're usually thinking, "I'm glad I bought one of these. This bonafidebaddass."

As a phone, the iPhone is so-so. As a multi-media device, this phone has no equal at the moment. All of its components rolled into this one, compact, beautifully designed piece of technology make for one great cell phone. It's more like a media device that makes phone calls--not the other way around. The simplicity of accessing your multiple e-mail accounts, surfing the web, watching an episode of your favorite TV show, listening to your flavor-of-the-month tunes, checking stocks, weather, traffic directions, setting up appointments in the calendar application, texting via the iChat-like client, taking pictures, and even making a phone call (it's not as hard as some reviewers make it out to be), the iPhone is simplicity personified. If you think of it in that regard, you will not be disappointed with the iPhone.

The only qualms I have found with the iPhone are:
(1) No privacy for SMS messages: if somebody is using your phone, the messages just pop up on the screen, whatever you're doing with an Ignore/Read prompt, and about 2 preview lines
(2) No MMS to date
(3) No multiple contacts for SMS messaging--you can only message 1 person at a time
(4) No cut/copy/paste feature to date
(5) No organizing the songs on your playlists on the phone, must be done on iTunes
(6) No Flash support on Safari browser to date
(7) No landscape text-entry mode on texting screen
(8) SDK not available to 3rd parties, probable for 2008 though
(9) Subsequently, lack of native 3rd party applications
(10) Must pay for ringtones via iTunes--cannot select ANY song--iPhone has a poor selection of default ringtones to begin with
(11) Camera settings non-existent at the moment--and no camera flash
(12) Speakerphone still too low in volume
(13) For a personal device, the iPhone is very limited in personalization touches for its internal software
(14) Locked to AT&T/Cingular
(15) No 3G

Other than those issues--most of which, if not all, will probably be addressed with software updates in the near future--the iPhone is a marvel of a tech device. For your business life, the iPhone is a poor fit--but for somebody's personal life, the iPhone might just suit all your entertainment media needs the best a phone could possibly do at this time. It has mine.

iPhone, is it as good as it seems? - Part I

The killer app on the iPhone has to be the phone. At the end of the day, it has to make and receive calls. It has to be loud enough and easy enough to use as a phone. One of the first things besides reception quality that is important to me is call volume. My cell phone has to be loud enough so that I can hear it in busy airports, walking down the street, etc. The Treo 650 was NOT loud enough which meant that I had to buy special software for the phone (Volume Care) just to boost the volume. So how does the iPhone stack up in this important area? So far so good. I’ve been making calls most of the day from the iPhone and the clarity and quality have exceeded my expectations. It’s loud enough, thank you Apple. I can navigate to my favorites and place a call with one hand. It still takes more taps than it should. You should be able to hold down the Home button to get to the Favorites screen (are you listening Apple, that was a great idea I just thought of?). The iPhone comes with a set of white stereo earbuds with an integrated mic. The mic also serves as a button to answer calls, end the current call, decline and incoming call, and do the hold features of call waiting. It also allows you to advance to the next song that’s playing and pause playback of audio from songs or movies. I don’t like earbuds for extended use. However, since they ingrate the mic, I’ll have to get used to them until a 3rd party solution comes out.

The iPod portion of the iPhone is what separates it from any other phone out there. Sure your phone may play mp3s, but it probably doesn’t play the ones you bought from the iTunes store. Apple has completely redesigned the iPod interface on the iPhone. The famous click wheel is gone. You can customize the screen buttons to the areas that you access most. You can watch your movies, music videos and video podcasts. Music does actually play through the built-in speaker if you don’t use the supplied earbuds/phone headset. The coverflow feature is pretty cool. My only complaint in this department is in the area of storage space. Storage on the iPhone is either 4GB or 8GB depending on the model you get. I have to say that while I can live in 8GB’s of space, 16GB would have been much better. I actually can’t believe that Apple would not offer a 16GB model. Especially considering how big video files and movies are. Perhaps they’ll come out with a 3rd model that does 16GB just like they came out with an Apple TV after the initial launch that has a 160GB hard drive (as opposed to the 40GB hard drive in the first model). The iPhone like the iPod is syncs the status of the content you play back such as movies and TV shows. So if you start watching a video on your computer in iTunes and then have to leave, sync your iPhone and go. When you start watching it on your iPhone it will pick up where you left off. This works in both directions.

Safari- Another great function of the iPhone has to be the Wi-Fi. It might not be a nice dell laptop or computer, but it's a portable internet provider which makes traveling even easier. The internet can be used whenever, wherever, however and it's not difficult at all. The only downside to this Wi-Fi is that fact that it lacks Flash player. Flash Player is a program which is the main operator for a lot of websites. Hey, flash player or not, isnt it cool to still have the internet in the palm of your hand?
