A friend of mine bought one. It's incredibly lite, but he's already got a couple scratches in the back because of it rubbing on a metal snap when he stuffed it in his blue jean pocket. So get a cover because the alum back is not durable. It's sooo much faster than the iphone 4s, but why is there STILL no external memory slot? Oh yea, get on the cloud (what a crock - like that's more convenient.)
Big criticism is the Apple map app. It sucks big time. Can't find any of my favorite restaurants around me here in Bangkok. Don't take my word for it being crap, plenty of articles say the same thing: http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-has-7000-fewer-people-working-on-maps-than-google-2012-9?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+typepad%2Falleyinsider%2Fsilicon_alley_insider+%28Silicon+Alley+Insider%29
I don't think this would have happened were Steve Jobs still around. He would have forgone the corporate profits because it was more important to have pride in what his company produced. He knew the profits would come. This is not a good omen for the company in my opinion.

For S3 because it's plastic there is virtually nothing.
Wish they would do a 2.39:1 screen on a phone instead of a 1.77:1 (16:9) screen

Android fanboys, even Android Authority is able to praise iPhone build quality, have some maturity to give credit where credit is due.
SGS3 vs iPhone 5 drop test:
After looking through the specs.... to be honest.... quite disappointed. 640 x 1136 pixels? Is this a midrange phone? How does Apple expect to compete against HOX and S3? I don't understand. Not sure how the A6 performs in comparison to the exynos processor on S3. Might as well look more into it. Most disappointed by the Battery LIFE!! 1424 mah is abysmal. Never heard of an iphone that is battery swap-able. Good luck i5 users...

Apple invention stopped when wozniak left apple.
they made the cover aluminium this time bacause if u dropped the 4s on the floor it would crack all over and u need some nice cash to fix, so they are selling us a correct 4s just with faster processor.fail apple

But if this case ever goes to an American court Apple will win and that other company will probably end up owing them a Billion Dollars because it's just impossible to beat Apple in an American court with American Jurors picked at random knowing nothing about the law and expected to be unbiased.
