I can't but writing opinion! Recently I've visited several Apple Store(s) in UK, & I found all the iPhone 5 have gotten scratched on their edge after 3/4 days of used in the shop. Whether it's black or white every iPhone 5 has scratched there, mostly invisible in white version.
...& I really shocked! They could do better with same material by using the silver aluminium unibody both on the black & white versions. & obviously that would be better looking too. Or they could make the shiny silver edge on black version.
however, I've a MacBook Pro, had a iPhone 4S but definitely I'M NOT AN APPLE FANBOY rather than a great tech-fan. Caused, I've already used some HTC Android(s) & WP as well. Couple of years ago I've used some Nokia SmartPhones too.
From my experience, in terms of anodized aluminium unibody HTC is the best, they've made the standard of anodized aluminium unibody by making legendary HTC Legend, Desire HD, Desire S, 7 Mozart, One S(***) and so on.... Apple could learn from them. Really this kind of fault is not acceptable from an company like Apple :( How could they make this mistake when they're making colourful anodized aluminium unibody beautiful iPods since from very beginning.
***at very beginning HTC One S had some chipping issue but that is solved. I'm using One S for 3 months & didn't get scratched yet, hopefully won't in future.
N.B: I don't like any cheap looking plastic made Samsung phone. & definitely I'll go for iPhone 5 but not sure about which colour I'll get.
im using iphine 5.....its quite gud but in compare to glaxy s2........i like s2 much better than iphone 5 in everything......
[deleted post]yes you should pray but not 5 times.GOD loves you either way.i would also pray if i had an iphone in the mail heading my way.
Robert, 30 Sep 2012What is better white or black ??Ive got black and its stealth like gorgeous but videos show it can scratch on the back aluminium plate,,some say you can just rub over with it with your thumb and that clears up a lot..I am not scratching mine to try it out tho, plus if it chips you can see it..
I am going to sell mine and get white i already have offers but then will have no phone for 3 weeks so stuck ATM..So if i were in your position now i would go for white it shows up the scratches less..
If you want the same thing near enough get the 4s instead it will be more durable they say..My black is ok ATM but videos online suggest that wont last..

Next time if Apple dont buck up or change design and keep up & deliver 32GB minimun spec iphone sales will drop badly.

AnonD-8044, 30 Sep 2012I have some mates in real life,,twitter and on forums i follow and no ones interested in NFC..... moreYeah NFC does nothing yet but that's why I'm saying people should start bugging Apple about it because you don't need much imagination to realise the potential of simply placing the phone on or waving it past to activate something. Because you could maybe have it in the car holder or store in a NFC enabled fridge magnet that you could store a message in, or I dunno even things like Pokemon cards where you just place on phone and gives you information or something.
And I admit it won't be until iPhone has NFC that these things happen, but the way Apple works is if it's not profitable then they won't include it.
AnonD-56991, 30 Sep 2012I pointed out how NFC works before with the tags but you seemed to want to dismiss the idea be... moreYou say about Apple not listening to its customers but it has..You getting mixed up with what high power tech geeks want ..Apple folk wanted better camera ,bigger screen,so they got that..
Other companys dont listen either..Every phone is useless when it rains and thats a huge complaint..Moto defy solved this but did they charge top money for it,,NO.So you can make a waterproof rugged fone and quite slim,,thats what folk want and better battery life..
Apple went wrong this time with trying to go for thinnest fone when no-one is interested ,,thin fones can be uncomfortable why not make it thicker and stick in decent battery..
Apple will not get away with using this design again,not even with Apple fans.

Yes here in UK we want NFC to pay for small items like newspapers and snacks but no where is investing..I do have one follower who had Nexus S about a year ago and he did NFC stuff with tags from NFC dog or something like that..I always remember him telling folk to buy 2 tags for each operation..So you enter bedroom at night and bedside clock activates and ringer shuts off,but,you need another tag so when you leave bedroom it returns fone to state it was in before you entered bedroom.
I just slide lock down on side of iphone and it mutes all sounds except in emergency if someone needs to contact you,,then go to bed with podcast playing..I know what you mean about the tags but interest is not there thats all.
They are waiting for iphone to get NFC because that means its ready to go as Apple will set up the ecosystem,,android has the chance to beat Apple and get NFC into mainstream like Japan but it doesn't.
If folk really wanted NFC and know about NFC they would ask at point of sale and reject iphone for android or Nokia C7 etc..
I reckon most folk take a picture upload it to facebook/twitter,make fone calls do some sms and check time,play some mp3 and thats it..We are geeks on here and make up tiny percent of fone sales,,maybe normobs never heard of NFC.
Had the 3GS, 4 and 4S. The 5 was quite a letdown - very little innovation, very minor upgrade from the 4S. The build quality was superb at first glace, but the phone is too light - yes, lighter is not always better. Soon you will realize the 5 is much more prone to scratches than the 4/4S. The anodized aluminum chipping issue is very real and your new 5 will look older than my 4S in no time. I'm fine with the iOS6, I even like the new map - the 3D view is just spectacular.
I decided to jump for Android a few days after playing with the 5. The galaxy S3 is a great piece of device, though I'm still struggling with the UI after a couple days of usage. I would say if you are like me, a long time iPhone user who wants something more refreshing than a longer screen, switch to Android for a year. Samsung did a fantastic job with the S3. Give it a try, if you don't like it, switch back to iPhone next year, and you know you did not miss much from the 5.

[deleted post]If Google was that obsessed about Ads they wouldn't allow the Ad Free app or similar Ad blockers but they are freely available on the market, and while most free games have Ads all you have to do is pull down the notification bar and turn data off then they are truly free.
But Apple doesn't want to allow free games because it's impossible to get a percentage cut from a free game and everyone knows Apple does nothing for free or cheap.
