And that's the kind of thing that should have been on the iPhone 5 but Apple knew people were gonna buy anything they make so didn't bother with any extra features, so it just shows if it's not profitable to Apple then they not gonna bother giving you it.
But I reckon if Steve Jobs was still alive you might have got that and NFC.

Imagine, 60% of lawsuits in the US alone is sponsored by Apple and the people are somewhat fed with it. The smartphone world had been shaken by Apple with its lawsuits thus innovation is somewhat slow.
I bet using iPhone in extreme winter temperature where the needle drops to -30 degrees is awful since it is made of aluminum. You may not even hold it unless you wrap it in rubberized housing. Aluminum absorbs the cold and it shrinks. I wonder what will happen if it gets frozen. Putting it back to warmer environment produces condensation because humidity sticks to metal and might affect internal parts. Polycarbonate and kevlar phones are still better.

I am on a hunt for my first ever smartphone. As a consumer, I am going to do research over the internet. The problem right now, is whatever site is reviewing the ip5, readers comments are trolled with users that are anti apple, and are picking on whatever flaw, the ip5 have. It's so f in annoying. Every article out there that allows readers comments, attacked and hacked by apple haters. Most of them probably don't even have the ip5. they talk like they know it inside out, and only talk about it's flaws. its so f in annoying. it comes to a point were it feels like they are doing it just because they dislike apple! I want to read a ip5 users comments, but they are usually washed out by the apple haters comments. I want ip5 users feedbacks, but I don't even trust the internet anymore because, it also feels like some are pretending to be Ex iphone users saying "i am moving to the s3" I've heard that one too many times to even believe it them. So what I did now was just look at reveiws, but don't read stupid readers comments. and I asked other iphone users, People i know that own it, and ask them for feedback. out of everyone I asked, everyone is "pleased" with their device. I will admit, one of my friends is actually switching, but he is like 1 in like 12 people i asked so far. anyways I do agree with you Brynn. All I want is an honest oppinon from a ip5 owner. I for sure wont it here, because of these apple haters over flooding their comments. It's pretty pathetic. Another one. lol. (ip5 is the same as the ip4s, its faster but you won't notice the difference) but when the s3 was faster then the ip4s, they sure didn't say that! there is barely any difference in speed but they rave about how its soooo much faster then the ip4s, f in these s3 users are a different breed of trolls too. Unbelievable. Anyways, no android for me. I will chose between ip5, or the lumina 820 or 920, no thanks to you android users.

Yes android is open sorce but i know its not safe with malicious malwares, laginess and so many problem! and i just observe gs3 forum that there user has facing so many problem. unlike iphone 4s only some and thats why gs3 is very popular because of so many users complains and thats all! btw iphone 5 is also popular because of haters not because of its user complains! right!
Iphone is the best phone up there really there is no other phone that hold value like
Look at iPhone now in a Quad-Core age.Definitely buying the Nokia Lumia 920.Compared to a Over priced Dual Core iPhone.
Do you have IPhone 5?
If no, what the hell are you doing here?
I repeat everyone who comment without owning the phone or interested in buying the phone does not impress anyone but rather a fool. Go and comment to the relevant forum. You Samsung fan boys just leave n be portable with your phone that has issue you likely don't wanna talk about. HTC One X beats S3 on benchmark and nobody ever raised that as an issue. Im iPhone fan & user.
kennyelfuego, 26 Sep 2012how much does it cost in USD?$200 for the 16GB Black or White, but you have to sign a two year contract with a carrier. Its the same price for most new smartphones. In the US we pay a lot just for cellular service, around $80 a month for voice/limited data/text/email.

It would be nice to come on here and chat about iphone5 but it full of kids sat behind a computer saying things they would not say to a persons face in real life..If you were on 2 weeks ago you would have seen folk not on here now because they are banned,,thats all gsmarena can do is keep banning folk ,until they shut the site down for good.
Tr0ishenly, 26 Sep 2012exactly; if they will use android, it will never be the same again; I used to be a serious Nokia fan and if they can't convince someone like me to buy their phones again then they really in trouble.
But the fact is there's hardly any WP apps so wouldn't even consider leaving Android for them.
iPhone 5 camera vs Lumia 920. Too much noise in low light for iPhone 5.
Tr0ishenly, 26 Sep 2012exactly; if they will use android, it will never be the same again; I have used Android for long time now, iOS, and Windows Phone. I don't think I can go back to Android.

I mean this isn't just my opinion, just look around Android forums and most people say it's fine and battery gets much better with Jellybean and the later ICS updates.
And I've had my S3 since release day and battery life does get noticeably better each time.
