As Apple's iPhone finally hits UK shores, Riyad gives you the full low down.

The iPhone is one of the most beautifully designed technology products I have ever used. Not only does it look great, but the usability puts even its good looks in the shade. The fact that you need no stylus to use the iPhone, speaks volumes about its...

Apple iPhone

 

Once in a while a gadget comes along that rewrites the rulebook, and the iPhone does so in spades

Sublime interface; great phone; easy to sync; excellent music player; all in one device

Virtual keyboard is hit and miss; lacks 3G; only on O2 at the moment

Apple iPhone

 

The UK release of the iPhone is finally here. But can Apple's wonder-gadget live up to Brits' expectations?

Breathtaking and intuitive multi-touch interface. The best mobile web browser ever. Awesome iPod features

Annoying recessed headphone jack. No 3G. Locked to O2

Apple iPhone review

 

After a 6 month wait, the iPhone has finally launched in the US. But has it been worth the wait? Pocket-lint went Stateside to try it out. Having lived with the phone for the weekend there is no denying the fact that it's large and minimalist at the...

Touchscreen, touch controls like zooming, 4GB or 8GB storage, Coverflow, camera, access to voice messages out of sequence, Wi-Fi, YouTube, Google Maps and Apple's Safari internet browser

No 3G, no video mode camera, no zoom, no flash, Bluetooth only works with headsets rather than allowing file transfer, no removable storage, headphone jack has been recessed meaning your headphones are unlikely to fit, no video out, no voice recording,...

So would we sign up for a 2-year contact? It's a tough one. The iPhone is still a great handset, however, it's also a handset that comes with multiple downsides; as we've listed above. We are going to give it top marks, however before you sign up...

Apple iPhone review

 

Elegant, intuitive and fast - but the iPhone could do more

MultiTouch touchscreen controls ; Intuitive interface ; Dazzling screen

No 3G ; Fixed focus camera ; Bluetooth works with phone headsets only

The iPhone is a stellar debut for Apple in the mobile phone market The more we use the iPhone, the more our affection grows for it. You can't say that about many things you use in your life. What makes the iPhone such a exciting device is its elegance....

Apple iPhone Bluetooth headset

 

Apple has a knack for crafting some killer kit but complementing it with mediocre, overpriced or uninspiring accessories. Witness the recently pulled iPod Hi-Fi speaker system, basic £69 leather iPod case or equally plain iPod socks

Fantastic tiny design, Good call quality, Includes iPhone Deluxe Dock

Tiny size makes it easy to lose, Sealed battery rules out heavy users, May not fit comfortably or securely in

Apple's miraculously lightweight headset is a joy to use and stylish, to boot

The Apple iPhone offers a stunning touch sensitive screen, one of the best on the market. It also features a 2 megapixel camera, music player (iPod) and web browser. But will the high cost put you off?...

Apple iPhone review

 

There's plenty to love, and plenty to lament about Apple's new mobile. With its solid design and a beautiful, touch-sensitive 480 x 320-pixel screen the iPhone is beautiful to look at and a joy to use. Its browser, while not as versatile as the one on...

If you want to love this much-hyped gadget, you'll find plenty to go ga-ga over. The Apple iPhone's revolutionary multitouch navigation system really is intuitive and fun. The endless expanse of display alone is nothing short of mesmerising, with...

Apple iPhone Review

 

The most impressive aspect of the iPhone on first viewing is its exterior design and styling, as well as the large 3.5 inch screen which is entirely touch sensitive.

It is also attempting to get a piece of the business market with support for Microsoft Exchange, which has got Blackberry users interested. To conclude, the iPhone is the market leader in many of the key mobile phone arenas and is the phone that every...
