the most crapy phone i ever bought, batery lasts 5 hours with heavy use, bad paint job, 4s the best phone i used. and iphone 5 has no comparison with flagships of 2013, an S2 beats this crap with harware. dont wasate your money just bcoz of glitter of apple
As long as you keep away from that little spot ,all ok..If i put my finger across that gap the signal did drop..You can always put a piece of cellotape across it..It is the best your going to do for cheapest price to get an iphone..I found it just as fluid but the newer ones speed things up a bit but it was still fluid.
Its up to you, S4 is a month off and if your just after iphone to put you on then iphone 4 will give you near enuf same experiance as iphone 5 but no Siri.The biggest thing is how much you will lose in money if you buy one then sell it..If its not much then nothing to lose..I am UK and the iphone 4 still is expensive.
Wolfson, 29 Mar 2013May as well and save money and you still get latest version of O/S.I found camera very hit and... morewhat do you suggest, should i go for the iphone 4 or no??
camera is not a problem for me as i am anyways gonna buy a galaxy s4 once its launched in india.
and what about the death-grip issue.... does it pose a serious problem??
ameya 13, 28 Mar 2013hey, how many people are gonna upgrade from iphone 5 to iphone 5s?? just asking because the ... moreyea obviously. they keep the same form factor for 2 years before changing. take note. iphone 3 - 3gs, iphone 4 - 4s, iphone 5 - iphone 5s. this bigger changes will be with the iphone 6. when they make the "s" version there arent usually the biggest changes.

Trying to hold off getting ip5 with new one due soon.Some say June keynote?
I have 16GB 4s but thought i would say about Apples overheads..They are expensive and as you double memory the price goes up TOO much they should charge only 20GBP extra instead of 100GBP.

also because its very cheap right now (26,500 INR)
apple rocks!! :D

i had a nokia n8 before, the built quality was superb. the cold bare aluminium finish was really nice but unfortunately the symbain OS lacked many apps.
i feel the iphone 5 has the same finish along with glass but its prone to accidents.
it can easily get scratched.
i'l go for an iphone 4
[deleted post]Nothing to do with a big screen android crap... Learn something user friendly real glass exposure...i have already used samsung note 2 which is equal to s4...note 2 was a crap...even if u just want to copy text from facebook u have to paas down a long procedure...apple provides every thing and is best
[deleted post]Just bought an iPhone5 for my mother.
samsung must pay its cheerleaders more: why? If samsung quality is as bad as its online cheerleaders's punctuation, i don wanna buy one.
The best mobile ever! I bought it an white iphone 5 i recommand everyone should buy an iphone. I was an android user. I used samsung s2,s3,note and even the note tab N8000. I can say even how much samsung or any other brands puts octa cores in their handsets. The main key is the OS. Not the specs of the device. See for yourselves. Even Android is having octa core precessors now and apple is having dual cores. Apple's dual cores are way faster than android's octa cores. I say it again. The specs are not important. Try the usability of the device and the os. God bless Apple
Awaiting next IPhone it got to really push the boat out. They need to include notification Led,bigger battery etc there is so much more they can do.As to bigger CPU well i think it fast and dmooth alreadt.
Speaker is not the loudest but tonal quality is 9.5/10 like for listening to podcast or movies...Other phones can be louder but more scratchy and tinny..Folk say the Nokia 5800 had loud loudspeakers but they were not nice very screatchy if thats a word..
ameya 13, 28 Mar 2013yes, iphone is really good , but why does apple have to tag their phones with a very high pric... moreThey do charge a premium and extortionate price to double memory of iphone..They do use good quality components like speakers and microphones and nice materials..They have a first class after service and that has to paid for also like got a fault in your iphone they just swap it for you they dont really mend them,,,
The Sony Z is 529GBP in Northern Ireland for 16GB version same as Iphone 5 16GB version...The Samcung S4 16GB version is coming in at 629GBP so maybe Apple not been too bad..
So the expense gets you ultra fluid O/S ,top after sales service(which has to be paid for somehow),top quality components and good quality materials..
Except for no bluetooth transfer,no file system and so on its been discussed to death the iphone is top notch in all departments..
If you see the way iPhone catches the eye it is something else. Every other phone looks like a toy infront of its sophisticated looks. Well hope it explains the pricing. And you are paying for the iOS unlike the free android. No wonder Micromax and all other Local manufacturers have android phones now. iOS IS the best, safest, secure, nolag OS for mobile operating systems. And the BEST don't come for free.
I am going to buy a iphone 5 but I hav 2 questions to the existing users pls help me by gvng right answer.

Pls help by answering
YSK, 28 Mar 2013Back to basics - what are phones meant for - calling, texting. The extras - playing games, wat... moreyes, iphone is really good , but why does apple have to tag their phones with a very high price tag ??
i mean c'mon its starting price is 56 grand (INR) and the iphone 4s still costs around 44 grand in india.
its really disappointing. i have seen phones with very high caliber and a lower price tag. :-\
