Apple iPhone

The iPhone boasts a brilliant display, trim profile, and clean lines (no external antenna of course), and its lack of buttons puts it in a design class that even the LG Prada and the HTC Touch can't match. You'll win envious looks on the street toting the iPhone, and we're sure that would be true even if the phone hadn't received as much media attention as it has.

We knew that it measures 115mm tall by 61mm wide by 11.6mm inch deep, but it still feels smaller than we expected when we finally held it. In comparison, it's about as tall and as wide as a Palm Treo 755p, but it manages to be thinner than even the trend-setting Motorola RAZR. It fits comfortably in the hand and when held to the ear, and its 135g give it a solid, if perhaps weighty, feel. We also like that the display is glass rather than plastic.

The iPhone's display is the handset's design showpiece and is noteworthy for not only what it shows, but also how you use it. We'll start off with its design. At a generous 3.5 inches, the display takes full advantage of the phone's size, while its 480 x 320-pixel resolution (160 dots per inch) translates into brilliant colors, sharp graphics, and fluid movements.
