Aluminum body looks cool but is easy to scratch
Proprietary connector, incompatible with previous-gen accessories (needs adapter)
The new display is not proportionally bigger, but only taller
Unadapted apps run letterboxed due to the unusual resolution
nano-SIM support only
Apple Maps app not up to scratch
No USB Mass Storage mode
No FM radio
No stereo speakers
No microSD card slot
No NFC connectivity (though that may be nitpicking)
Stuck with iTunes for loading content
Mono audio recording in videos
Only exception is no built in radio. Other than that, its a truly exceptional handheld nonetheless.
is look nice but is kind of boring, is the same as iphone4 so don't lost your money whit this iphone5, there is no need to upgrade is the same thing just a little big screen and new design, and iOS6 are like copy paste =S im realy disappoint whit apple right now, like some people say Steve Jobs die, the brain of apple go and they will star doing crap like this phone and event the iOS6 are bad nothing new like when steve was there ... so sad

"single day strike" means a Month stagnant for Apple phone marketing strategy.
iPhone 5 battery is much better in terms of browsing than any monter battery out there:
for just only 1440 mah vs. 3110 mah of note 2 and maxx series.
This is the worst innovation of the year. Nothing new. Same old grand daddy story. Same design nothing changed. Except bigger screen. Only those cannot see logic will say this is a good phone. Yes better IOS but not fantastic as compare to competitors like SIII or Optimus 4X. I think Lumia 920 will beat iphone 5 with one eyes close. Shame on those raving fans keep saying its good its good. Its like saying shit is delicious. The facts is obvious. Tks
Jason Marlowe, 07 Oct 2012I was thinking to buy this phone but no radio and no sd card slot, this is very bad news.there are so many free radio apps. from appstore free but you need internet connection to use it. but its better coz you do not need to use weak radio reception in your area plus you can also access more channel all over the world so buy it sir!
No doubt, without Google (maps) and Samsung (chips) support iphone survival is at Risk.
iphone 4s is the best phone in the world iphone 5 every one in Cambodia do not like it.
Why apple make only iphone (3,4,5........)S version better then iphone(3,4,5........)?
Iphone(3,4,5.......) are waste for money forever
I suggest for all never buy iphone(3,4,5,......)
buy only iphone(3,4,5........)S

I bought gs3 yesterday... (though iphone 5 design made more attraction)
coz of the current Nano SIM card availability issue in my country.
