I am surely going to buy this phone in October when probably they would get the quality issue sorted out. And why I am buying this, not that I love it but I will get it free of cost with renewing my contract which Singtel told me I can renew without any top up after I completed just under 18 months.
i have already replaced my previous iphone 4 and ipad 2 with galaxy tab 7.7. but only problem is I will never get jelly bean on 7.7. and that is a deal breaker as it is as smooth as iOS. Anyway planing to carry iphone 5 + tab 7.7 (which is smaller and thinner then ipad but excellent form to carry on hand easily for longer hours while on move.
But if one has to seriously pay the full amount to get the iphone 5 (no contract) I would wonder how many they would sell. iPhone for its high price never was a success in the world two most populous country where you hardly see any organized mobile contract in place. Andriod being a better OS but is so heavily fragmented that after spending so much on high end phone (spent 888SGD on tab 7.7) you do not expect to get any latest OS (like jelly bean) upgrade after a year or less.
iPhone 5 survives torture tests
No, don't buy. There are reports many new iphones are damaged from the factory with scuffs and scratches. The new connector does not fit your accessories. Pay lots for an ugly adaptor no thanks. Small screen. Too restrictive about where you buy music, apps etc. Apple want to be payed for every little thing. They are not the only company with a good app store any more.

And they'll also charge you for anything they can get away with where again it's free on Android.

And speed is not measured by cores, same as car speed is not necessarily depending on engine size. It is to do with optimization, and A6 chip is already one of the fastest performers while maintaining good battery life.
