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 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. :-\
Back to basics - what are phones meant for - calling, texting. The extras - playing games, watching videos, clicking pictures, checking mails on the go, maps. Well, the iPhone does all of this with style. Unlike android doesn come with glitches or hangs or crashes. In the end android is just another open sourceware linux based system. The iOS is a independent, highly developed multimillion invest OS.
The competitors might come with better specs and features. iPhone comes with standard yet high quality specs. 8 MP, 4", Retina Display, Aluminium Casing and manages to be Simple yet Effective.
I use a iPhone and i am in love with it. I don need to worry about new arrivals in the market because i still know - If u don't have an iPhone, YOU don't have an iPhone.
how many people are gonna upgrade from iphone 5 to iphone 5s??
just asking because the rumours say that its gonna be a minor upgrade and the design would almost remain the same?!?:-\

it beats the sgs 4 in design with a clean sheet but still people will prefer the sgs4 because it offers more features in a price range that is certainly gonna be less than that of the iphone 5. :-\
Apple is after all Apple. Even if it may be lacking in few departments yet none of the droids can bring innovation as it has in the past. Own this and proud to have it. As for message to Apple, just keep doing your best like you have always done. Cheers!!
markc, 27 Mar 2013this phone is a failure. no SD card!! only 1 GB ram memory (all new phones has 2 GB)!! no NFC!... morePeople say that iPhone has a small screen , low ram , no quad-cores or any other stuff like android.
But still iPhone is the bestselling smartphone because of its usability , reliability and many more features.
Who needs a 5.5inch screen on a phone how many can hold it perfectly , and iPhone had the highest benchmarks even beating the s3 . It counts on usability not just specs like octacores and 10 inch screens and then also android lags.
how many hours battery backup on net browsing and standy time please please please please please
quality wise this gadget is good but in terms of performance its not good comparing to Samsung Galaxy S4. So apple make it up!
One of the most stable and fast phone I have ever seen, much better than Samsung. Battery life is too good as compare to other smartphones in market. I also got iphone 2 and it still working, so I have no doubts on iphone 5 in terms of reliability. iPhone 5 has got Excellent camera. Just don't go by mega pixel (can 13 MP DSLR Camera and 13 MP phone can give same results... just think about it). Its 1 GB RAM is good to run apps designed for iphone 5. Value for money phone. Only drawback - flash based web content will not get displayed.

Do those features sound like they are worth $500+ dollars in 2013?? really all your paying for this time is a brand name and the apple lifestyle
