Wow check out the Squaretrade iPhone 5 vs SGS3 toughness test. Looks like the tables have turned this time round for Samsung.
My only concern is that Apple sorts out the chipping which is a cosmetic issue, toughness wise however, the iPhone 5 can take a beating.
Apple says 25% of all iDevices ever sold are already on iOS 6. Great news for developers.
Consumer Reports iPhone 5 review.
“The iPhone 5 fulfills its promise as a notable improvement over its fine predecessor, the iPhone 4S, and belongs in the first rank of smart phones…
… By boosting screen size, thinning its profile, and adding 4G LTE access, among other features, his newest iPhone shows every sign of being the most compelling yet.”
Prakesh69, 25 Sep 2012My Iphone 5 is peeling at the sides and back just like the fruit!!! I hate this Apple and they... moreDear Prakesh, it isn't nice to tell untruths. You have mentioned your dislike for Apple many times here before, yet now you expect people to believe you bought an iPhone 5.
Seriously, it's ok not to like something, but carry it out in a more dignified manner. Let me help you:
"Apple should maintain higher standards if they want to keep their customers. Chipping out of the box is unacceptable, as people expect high standards from them".
Exactly the same point as yours, and yet, as an iPhone fan, I would agree with the above sentence as it is true that iPhone fans expect high standards from Apple.
My Iphone 5 is peeling at the sides and back just like the fruit!!! I hate this Apple and they rob me of a lot of money!!!!
Ka, 25 Sep 2012Why is battery too poor? Strong but short in life. I have a lot of folk i know with iphone5 but no reports at all of poor battery life????

Your right tho Nokia need all the help they can and should get this out,however,via Steve Litchfield on the Phones Show Chat podcast its Windows 8 holding up the release..We can see if this is true if a W8 device launches before the Nokia.
As a vzw employee I just wanna say one thing. If I had a quarter for every android i had to replace under the 1 yr warrenty i'd be a millionare. If i had 1 million for every iphone i had to replace id be broke. obviously apple is behind in technology and processor and technical junk, but fact of matter is that the adverage customer doesnt care about that they just want a reliable phone that they can use and that doenst have to be plugged in all the time. Dont get me wrong android is a good product as well but in my opinion i feel more comfortable selling the iphone over android to any customer especially first time users.

Of course the iPhone 5 is innovative, because it has erm... well you know all those Apple things it does like...
Ah... Oh no that's not one, but Hell I don't need to answer these questions.Oh no I just remembered Apple have developed a patented new way of absorbing the entire contents of your wallet directly through the phone.
"most of the iPhone 5 units he and his team were producing were faulty – with good ones being just 10%"
"The good news is that you can always return your iPhone 5 if you are unhappy with it for a full refund"
Guys ... Give back that expensive piece of joke to it's creator, and get a decent phone + lots of accessories + any app you can buy for barely the same price !!
brynn, 25 Sep 2012Oh great typical NOKIA..Yeah you'd think with how Nokia's been struggling the last few years they try to get their phones out a bit quicker but it's sometimes getting on a year after announcement that they release some phones and people are just getting peed off while they waiting.
But I'm betting people who got the iPhone 5 are wishing Apple took longer to test the phones so they weren't falling apart on day 1.

They produce innovative(Sometime... moresince you are so smart, tell me what is so innavating about this iphone, and what makes it different to anyother phone, cause I dont see any thing..... and im a tech geek when it comes to phones

They produce innovative(Sometimes), efficient, and top notch quality devices.
*Customer Service is unbelievable*. (They have replaced my iPhone 2 times free of charge with very little investigation)
If they make money from that who cares?
Making money is the main agenda in any business.
Supply and Demand. If Apple was not listening to their customers then they would not be selling 5 million + units over a weekend and people would not be coming back for more.
