I got iPhone 5 64 GB around 2 months back. It is awesome. Absolutely addictive. Android users can never feel what is the meaning of net surfing, gaming, listening to music, etc till they put their hands on an iOs device. The fluid operations of the iOs just make life extremely easy. Pages is the app equivalent to MS Word on iOs or Mac, Keynote is PowerPoint of Apple and Numbers is Excel of Apple. These apps are all as useful on the mobile devices as on a Mac. I had used Android devices and purchased so many Office apps on google play.... But was relieved only after getting the Work app pack on iOs on my iPhone 5 and iPad3 with retina display. The display is extremely beautiful and it is absolutely impossible to take your eyes off ..... You just get stuck to it. Gaming experience as well. No lag, no drag, no crash.... A bit of heat is experienced when too much gaming is done. Battery life is gorgeous with wifi. Continuous chatting on 3 G gives close to 8 hours of life. Facebook chat consumes a lot of battery. Whatsapp or iMessage ( free chat iPhone to iPhone ) .. Actually iMessage is free chat on ios to ios devices... iPod touch/ iPhone / ipad... If you have the money... Just get it... Also see to it that you have a nice collection of cases as it is delicate on the edges... Extremely beautiful.. Best friend... Has replaced my laptop more than 80%... Mail checking is nice... Google search is awesome... Siri is cute. Does everything for you from making a call to putting a status on Facebook! Come out of android... Get an iPhone 5,

folk on here get it into your heads its our money and we will buy what we want,we are the folk using the phone not you.A phone is subjective to what you want not what others say ,most folk have these fancy smartphones and just talk and text..
I know for well by the way folk talk about iphone that they have never owned one..You cant comment till you have owned one..
This is the iphone 5 forum not S4 or any other droid so what are you doing here? If you are not interested in iphone why bother or are you really interested..I don't see you in Alcatel forums why not? If you don't care about Alcatel phones you don't go to their forum same goes for iphone proving fully that all visitors to iphone forums are interested in iphone,psychlogically proved.
AnonD-164413, 06 Aug 2013I didn't simply touch it.I checked it completely.May be Samsung phones are made of plastic.But... moreSpec is nothing but how it perform.
S4 has got good hardware but still lags and has got lot of disadvantage like heating,low battery backup.
Were as Iphone5 got 1gb ram but runs flawlessly.no hangs or lags nor heating issue.
End of day whats the use of high end hardware device which gives crap performance.
Thumbs Up For Iphone 5 And Thumbs Down For Android !
I was an User of Samsung Smartphone Before But Not Anymore All These Problems I was Facing Out was Just 'gggrrrrr'...
Iphone 5 Or any Iphone Mobile Are Just Wow..
More Stable, No way of having Viruses and its kinda very protective !
Im a user of Iphone 5 and i just Love It !
AnonD-164413, 06 Aug 2013I didn't simply touch it.I checked it completely.May be Samsung phones are made of plastic.But... moreiPhone features are in the apps
iPhone specs are shown thru the apps.
Same thing with nexus4 or s4, some people found n4 runs more smoothly then s4 and thus value it higher then s4.
You should be valuing phones thru that, and the only way to know it is to use all devices ip5/nexus4/s4/note2/htc onex/htc one etc etc and find out.. (hardly possible, but as one of the people who use nearly all high end phones i can tell you the truth)
AnonD-170897, 05 Aug 2013Don't give a comment on just touching a mobile.What will you comment if you touch a plastic toy?I didn't simply touch it.I checked it completely.May be Samsung phones are made of plastic.But what about nexus 4, Simply great.
IPhone don't have good specs or features but it is simply too expensive.
I accept that it is fast and had good look and feel in hand.But are Droids bad? Don't think that Droids lag....I suggest you buy Droid ,s4, HTC one, nexus 4 or something.
Tcool, 06 Aug 2013How about load your iPhone 5 tiny 16GB full of apps?
You don't have enough space for videos a... moreComparing a 16gb version of iP5 vs S4, iP5 still have more storage for applications.
If i have money i can get 64gb versions, but too bad for you .. even with money you cant even buy 64gb S4, because its a myth and lie.
The coming of S4 competitor iP5s will have 128gb for sure.. and you will lose any storage advantages.
Applications in the background on iP5 does not drain as much as S4 in the background. Both phones fully loaded, iP5 will still have better battery life.
NFC is only used to initiate connection between the devices (using it directly to file transfer is very very slow and a joke), Wifi /BT is still the means of sharing the files (like android beam, or the coming iOS7 airdrop or just any FTP/AFP/SFTP or cloud)

But overall, it is an awesome phone. Way much better than s3 experience. S2 had the same issue n couldn't be resolved.
i used to own a Samsung GS3 and switched to an iPhone 5 last January...so far i'm very disappointed with my switch...battery doesn't last a day with 3G data on, no apps running in the background & still with 10.6GB available on my 64GB memory...unlike with my GS3, that last a day & has a removable/changeable battery...my iPhone is getting very boring despite all the apps i have as it cannot be customized compared to my GS3...Apple better come up with lots of exciting & useful features on iOS7 or else i'm switching back to Samsung for Note3...
I want the Xperia Z instead of the iPhone 5 however apparently the Xperia Z has WiFi issues according to some users and apparently there is also a overheating solution. And some say it is hard to hold e.g uncomfortable in your hand. Is all this true, and is it a problem for you guys out there?

You don't have enough space for videos and MP3s because you cannot expand that tiny 16GB with SD card.
I bet it will also consumes the battery faster when you run all those apps in the background at the same time.
What is the use of a high specification phone when you always have to pay for a good collection of quality apps. There are free iOS apps but mostly trash if not trial version.
NFC is the latest way to share files even wothout Wi-Fi connection.

Mobile life is revolving around quality applications, how long can you use it and how long it last on standby.
What is the use of a high spec'd phone when it does not have a good collection of quality apps? and dies faster even with a massive battery?
Not legacy features.. unless you want to share files with cavemen using bluetooth file transfer. There are easier way to share, like Bump apps. Or using wifi hotspot, tons faster and more reliable then BT.
got it last week. its a beast brotha. changed it from xperia z cuz i had dead pixels on it shitty droid
theva, 05 Aug 2013iphone 5 better or s4?? help me out guys,recently i'm using s3..Iphone 5,don't go for stupid crap plastik phone...

I don't like to own that plastic crap.If the heating issues has been solved ages back why still people troll for heating issue in S4 read opinion.
Memory card :Only limited apps can be moved to SDcard.Man just 8gb is users available out of 16gb hahaha.were as on iphone you can install as many apps and media file in single storage.
You guys talk about widgets and then report for hang and lags.worst battery standby even if phone is not used the battery drains because of these widgets.
Bluetooth enough of A2DP(songs and calls)24/7 we are not going to transfer files.Think about the daily usage?
From apple so far six mobile model has been released so 4 inch is not bad were as samsung release its model like piglets so definitely they have to increase the screen size.
