Ok, fine, so in addition to the exhaustive iPhone review
, we thought it'd be fun to yin its yang and let everyone at Engadget who bought (or at least spent some time with) an iPhone to have their say in a line or two.Ben
: 9 / 10 - "I'd say as a mobile phone it ranks highly, but it's not a 'smartphone'."Chris
: 6 / 10 - "Great in-the-box wow factor, terrible out-of-the-box wow factor."Conrad
: 9 / 10 - "The only multi-function gadget available that manages to maintain the illusion of not being a device of compromises."Dante
: 9 / 10 - "Finally, a phone that can replace my K800i. But truth be told, I could actually do all these amazing things before."Evan
: 4.5 / 10 - "I got so frustrated by the tiny 'keys' and unusable browser that I just put it down after five minutes."Josh
(the guy that returned his
): 5 / 10 - "Annoyed with the keyboard, toy-like interface, and limited ability to customize. Truth be told, if I can't install an NES emulator on it, I'm probably not interested."Nilay
: 8.5 / 10 - "Terrific except for the email app and GSM noise."Paul
: 9 / 10 - "It's pretty much all I want in a phone, and I'd give it a 10 if I could load a SNES emulator on it."Peter
: 6 / 10 - "Beautiful and easy to use, it gets a lot of things right and completely changes the game when it comes to mobile interfaces. Too bad it's really hard to get any work done with it."Ryan
: 7.5 / 10 - "The best converged phone / media device yet, but it's got problems. For instance, the email app. Until they get it together it's fun, but not very productive."Average score
: 7.4 Not bad! Seems like for the most part Engadget editors either loved it, or didn't like it at all. So what else is new?
