Anonymous, 02 Oct 2012This phone just gets me nervous how people can still buy a phone that looks the same 3 years i... morehow many handsets do companies like samsung or htc release every year? and how different are they? they release a good handset then 4 or 5 downgrades. apple releases one phone every year, but the software is upgradable to at least 3 previous models. android users have to wait around for software updates purely because their phone stops being the 'best phone ever' after 1 or 2 months. so don't come here moaning about lack of diversity when other companies release phones just for the damn sake of it. all this apple jealously annoys the living hell out of me!!!
I have an Iphone on my hand and battery back up is horrible..i didn't expect this from TOM COOK...or is there anyway to lengthen battery life....

[deleted post]That's right! Aluminum is the cheapest material to use by some people consider as premium. Imagine, your phone has the same material as your home screen door or sliding door, boat, window frame, power lines, etc. It's cheap because it is abundant. Aluminum is
categorized as POOR metal in the periodic table.
When aluminum corrodes, it produces white powdery oxides leaving the surface scarred. Aluminum is particularly extremely sensitive to acids and leaving it exposed for few minutes produces oxidation leaving the surface damaged. Aluminum is a soft metal that falls on the same category with Lead in the periodic table.
Disappointing iPhone 5 sales shows how crappy this phone is.
Ten days with the iPhone 5 review
"The iPhone 5 is everything I expected from Apple’s next-gen iPhone, and more. It’s everything I love about the iPhone 4S, all taken to the next level, and really enhances the iPhone experience. From the taller screen to the thinner and lighter build, the iPhone 5 is something you truly have to experience for yourself to fully appreciate.
I expected a lot from the iPhone 5, and to my pleasant surprise, Apple delivered everything I expected and then some. So, why should anybody upgrade to the iPhone 5? For me, the answer became apparent from the moment I first held it in my hands."
I'm using Iphone 4 and excited that I'm given 500 bucks voucher so that I can upgrade without cost to Galaxy Note II.
But, my voucher expiry can only allow me to get Iphone 5 before expiry, and the Starhub Telco called that they can deliver Iphone 5 right to my door steps, the 64Gb version and at no cost.
Out of convenience, I agreed, as Samsung Note II is not launched in Singapore yet, and my voucher can't wait.
I merely "upgrade" at no cost to me based on Convenience, as I do not have burning desire to get the iphone 5.
Well, after receiving it, physically, yes, slightly longer and lighter.
Software wise, I think I'm not impressed nor excited at all, as what I'm getting is some minor software tweaks, just like 4.0 to 4.2 kind of upgrade.
Let's not state the obvious, as there are tonnes of reviews out there.
However, my experience had not been very pleasant.
1. It got overheated and show me a message like "overheated, please let it cool before use" can't remember the exact phrase though. This is NEW to Iphone 5, I never see this message in my Iphone 4.
2. Battery life is extremely bad. I thought my Iphone 4 is bad, but I'm left with 30% at 1400hrs, I'm full 100% charge at 0930hrs. I didn't answer call, but having 8 miss calls and some sms. that's all. Well, perhaps I got a lemon with defective battery.
As far as I'm concern, I'll be selling it away and get Note II, will never return to Apply until real innovation comes in their future phones, and not 6 rows for Iphone 6.
