Marco Arment on the way *Consumer Reports* graded the iPhone:

>They also say the iPhone has “one of the best cameras we’ve seen on a phone”, but that wasn’t enough to earn the “excellent” dot-circle rating.

Marco does a great job breaking this down. At the end of the day I can’t help but wonder if *Consumer Reports* just knows that rating the iPhone well will result in less traffic to their, erm, Reports — thus they try to be *more* “objective”.
