Has anyone who has got an iphone5 found it to be significantly better than the iphone 4S? I have the 4S at the momoent so I'm familiar with the OS changes, I'm just wanting to know if the beefed up harware specs are noticeable enough in the overall user experience to justify me upgrading when my contract expires next month.
My 4S seems to run ios6 well enough and, on paper, I don't see any justification whatsoever in upgrading unless I'm going to have a siginificantly noticeable improvement using the handset day to day.
I understand that some people need a phone like the note 2 to work and etc and thats the right device for them and for their needs, but I just think thats wrong to compare ip5 to note2 and say that the note2 is better!
When the note 1 cames out people said it was stupid because it was to big to be a phone and to small to be a tablet, and now the note 2 is the best? Why? Its more powerfull but it has the same problem! I had a s3 but I switch it for an iphone 5 and I made the best choice I could made! The s3 its also a little big to be a phone and I prefer to have a small beast like iphone 5 and a big beast like the new ipad, wich I own too, to watch multimedia and play games! I can have a powerfull smartphone experience with iphone 5 and a powerfull tablet experience with the new ipad, I dont want a device that its in the middle of this two, but thats only my opinion! No to mention the exclusive and smooth user experience that Apple provides with ios, an unique os!
iOS6 could be consider a better choice than Wdp8 OS for its higher number of applications.
but no other OEM competed on this platform, leading to least innovation except mono design since 2007. lacking varieties of gadget quality, design, size , price etc for public to choice per their taste.

Whatever iPhones are made of, they must be doing some things right. Some guy droppe his iPhone in a lake, found it 6 moths later and it still works!
Reading the above, I'm guessing iPhones are either made of Amazinginium or Polyfantasticarbonate.

absolutely no doubt the iphone5 is a good looking phone,shoot,the 4 is awesome looking with the glass on both sides,but unfortunately,THIS handset was introduced with some faults,right off the bat.not many other HIGH end devices have been introduced as praised and regarded as this one, and have had the president of the company come out and say "we made a mistake"(maps)this quickly.i am not trolling but simply not keeping silent as i was in line to buy the new IPOD touch but have turned my back on apple for being brats in the AMERICAN courtrooms and no longer being innovative.
iSJ5, 11 Oct 2012lol note 2 is not a fone! its so stupid to compair it with iphone 5. :pThis is one reason why I will never buy any iPhone http://www.youtube.com/watch?f...Ey2u2n_XTQ#! United States Patent http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi...+AN/Apple%29

Making scratches and dents to iphone5 out of the box is such a difficult process that makes it quite reasonably an expensive unique phone, the best of the best.

People were just sayign s3 is better because they hated apple so much they had to side with the next most powerful android phone. They don't even dare admit it's flaws, with the risk of it showing signs of its weakness, (s3 users) , in hopes to take the ip5's title of top phone on the market.

iphone 5 is made out of titanium..... but, if you think so , then lol on you. The only other phones that use (some) titanium on the planet is vertu' phones which cost 50 thousand us. dollars. But, hey, thats your honest oppinon then so be it. I think it's insane they considered using titanium to make a phone.
I got my iPhone 5 on 5th October! And I was so excited! I am for sure a loyal Apple fan and my last 3 phones have been iPhones, as good as these Samsung galaxy phones may be there is simply no comparison when it comes to iPhone! The operating system is amazing, and the UI is crisp clean and simple unlike the galaxy s3 which I find a jumbled mess! Apple keep it simple and easy for people of all ages! It's simply the best smartphone in the world and I won't have anything else!

And Samsung has absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about because they do every sized phone anyone could possibly want and this fits the market for people who need to carry a tablet but don't want to have to carry one strapped up in a padded case.
So Note 2 just fits that narrow market that some people need and Apple don't offer, and for some people with iPhone and iPad it would be the best thing for them, but it would be ridiculous to say all iPhone owners should buy one.

Even Samsung is embarrassed to call it that and calls it a phablet. They had to call it something else, because even they knew holding up that gigantic thing to the ear looked ridiculous and would just bring on the laughs. Calling it phablet, distracts people, and fooled some people into actually using it. Note 2 sales will be lower than Note. Maybe there will be Note 3 or not, but it will be the last.
