Apple iPhone 5 - user opinions and reviews

Apple

Sort by:

Got to play with the iPhone 5 today as it starting selling in Dubai a couple of days ago. I confirm the the corners and back get chipped and scratched easily,phone is still small for me. Camera and the rest of the software pales in comparison to my lumia 900 not even the 920 which will eat it alive. Overall an ok but boring phone. Maybe for a new user it's great. For someone who have used all the iPhones and stopped with the 4s when there started being better alternatives in the market it's not an alternative for me anymore. Well for now the phone is ok but will have a rough time with the competition from galaxy 3,lumia 900&920, and even the htc 8x. And the funny part is every part of the that apple claimed is the only one or the best is getting disapproved fact by fact. What happened apple. Hope the guy who slept in the street for a week gets his times worth. For me someone who can do that is a person who needs to get a life and a job.

Autospies: First iPhone Samples in Not So Perfect Light Conditions

http://www.autospies.com/news/...Earth-72575/

From the article:

"Kudos to Apple for the improvements and for what's in development.

The iPhone 5 is definitely the best low-light cell phone camera yet.

We're interested to see the new Nokia performance but that is not available to us yet.

Remember, megapixel stats don't tell the whole story on cameras.

Real-life samples do.

The Android cameras brag about high megapixels but in our tests they are NO match for the iPhone. Especially when the lighting gets dicey."

when it comes to technical & numerical analysis, android systems (esp htc products)are far better and much more sophisticated. as a guy who has worked with android and ios i have found that android phones or tablets are more practical but ios seems like an e.toy.

Ok, we consider that you seeking for the best phone in the world. You know that this phone must have these features: Less than 9 mm thickness, smart OS, Display density more than 300, Display size 4 inch or more, Camera 8 MP or more, GPS, Gyro, Compass, WLAN, more than 8 hours talk time, weight less than 120 g! Beleive it or not there is only one phone in the world that has all these together: Iphone 5. And all of these are the 'hardware' specs not the software. You can figure out this on GSMArena Phone Finder.

Cmon guys obvious iphone 5 is a good phone...but these days its not d leader.

Even there are reasons why NFC is not included on d new iphone....cuz NFC wont work on aluminum back of the phone and NFC only works on plastic. A fact.

About the chipping..just a minor fault. A permanent marker can sort.

Despite all the bad news from chipped paint and dents to inferior maps, people still blindly buy IPhones.
More news about inferior IOS 6 maps.

Its A Cortex A15 processor which is superfast then the A9 and A8 which is amazing so dual core 1.2GHz will be superfast.
