- The New York Times: "Much of the hype and some of the criticisms are justified. The iPhone is revolutionary; it’s flawed. It’s substance; it’s style. It does things no phone has ever done before; it lacks features found even on the most basic phones."
- USA Today: "With a few exceptions, this expensive, glitzy wunderkind is indeed worth lusting after."
- The Wall Street Journal: "Despite some flaws and feature omissions, the iPhone is, on balance, a beautiful and breakthrough handheld computer."
- Newsweek: "One of the most hyped consumer products ever comes pretty close to justifying the bombast."
