Amazing that when you read these "reviews" all they really tell you is that this phone is a piece of crap- I would argue the vast majority of these people have never even seen the phone let alone used the phone in person.
As to why the ratings are so low- what a load of tosh. It's an amazing phone which appeals to a great deal of the phone market- not necerssairly everybody but that's ok.
The design of this thing is killer- the highest quality design of a phone I've ever come across- feels much better than cheap plastic

Slashgear iPhone 5 review
Competition between mobile platforms keeps the industry moving and innovating. That can often present itself as a surfeit of innovation: feature upon feature, piled high in an all-singing, all-dancing device. Right now, the iPhone 5 has the best balance of everyday usability and performance, without the distraction of functionality that is clever but unintuitive. It’s an area in which Apple excels, and it’s the reason the iPhone 5 is one of the best smartphones on the market today.
Metro review of iPhone 5
On paper, the iPhone 5 may appear to offer more of the same. While it doesn’t deviate from Apple’s previous iPhone template too much, once you have the thing in your hand it sweeps you away. Throw in an improved Siri, the Panorama camera function and, yes, those flipping EarPods and you have a five-star iPhone 5. It may not be the biggest smartphone out there, but it remains the classy leader of its field.
iSJ5, 23 Sep 2012im still not using android, but im looking for cheapest android for just expirience! ok i will... moreTo get the real android feeling you should get a good android running phone... Ex: Samsung Note, S3... it will be a whole new advance experience for you if you like to do things beyond than a phone. Good luck..
Cnet iPhone 5 review
The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It's absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe.
Apple will soon taste their fruit of court policy, once the world started hating their products .
they should not suppressed other (phone) manufacturers rights again and again for the sake of innocent customers.
PC Advisor iPhone 5 review
This is the first iPhone to face strong competition from Android devices such as the popular Samsung Galaxy S III. Our tests so far suggest it already shows all the competition a very clean pair of heels in raw speed. And the iPhone 5 has build quality that can't currently be matched. The iPhone 5 is a very classy act.
Engadget review of iPhone 5
"Apple's iPhone 5 is an amazing performer with great battery life wrapped in a delicious shell. It's a top-shelf device."
In simple words iphone 5 is a joke, wait for more windows phones to be released which does the job for your daily usage
Apple rocks!!! samsung is totally sued......
I phone 5 is the best fone i have ever used....
and it ROCKS guys! must try it!!!
Apple releases 4 iPhone 5 ads.
My favorites are 'Thumbs' and 'Cheese'.
iOS 6 adoption rate double that of iOS 5:
Internet is flooded with iPhone 5 owners' complaints about their new smartphones arriving scratched straight out of the box
What?? No adobe flash player!! Yet this aluminium shell costs over 900$ ???Mr.Cook,apple users may be loyal but not retarded.Thank you for your overrated and overpriced product.I hope iphone 6 will cost 2000$.Come on,Cook needs that money to buy some properties on the Moon, please make that mans dream come true, please pay another 1000$ royalty for giving us a taste of heavenly Apple.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2012umm sorry mate, not quite starters that article shows only 2 benchmark results of about 8.. se... moreIn that so called testing and against sg3 , the mighty apple A6 processor havent texted against quade core krait !!!!well I guess Anandtech forgot.
The mighty apple GPU have tested against adreno 220 and won.Well there is adreno 305 in the market.I guess Anandtech forgot about that as well..
I wonder how much money Mr. Cook has paid Anadtech to present us a mediocre review like that.
