Thanks GSMArena, I have just ordered this phone, it will be my first iPhone. Been using Android the last 2,5 years, and I will now discover if iOS is better for me. Never paid so much for a phone, but I need to see what the fuzz is all about
Held this phone today. Wow. Seriously, love it or hate it, the build quality on this phone is simply phenomenal.

No thanks to pink or white phones. ROFL! Nokia N9!!!
AnonD-36622, 29 Sep 2012Man, why Apple's users are so blind? Why not accept the facts? Will it help you if I say I nev... moreDude, people know all the stuff you mentioned, they aren't blind. They actually buy Apple products, just because it's Apple, because it makes them feel special. If I was to compare iPhone with something else, I'd say it's a bit like buying expensive designer clothes. They aren't better at all, but there is great desire among the people to own them. It's brand that makes it so unique. There is no point in arguing about specs, as there always been something on par or even better then iPhone. Well, not only iPhone, in my opinion same thing goes for Apple laptops, but it doesn't change the fact that both products are very popular and sell exceptionally well.
The 4s was somehow better, the new iCrap 5 doesn't seems to worth to pay that much, maybe wait for 5s is a better option.
So what i saw from here, iPhone 5 have easily best overall battery life in the market.
Alui, 29 Sep 2012How would you like if a stranger would start criticizing you mother in public? You are a stra... moreMan,stranger to Apple products?!! What heck makes you an expert?! I deal with them every f***ing day on my work and never fall in love! But wait...do you even work? Or do you even deal with an iPhone every day! Someone talked about mothers also, gezz...if there is a troll here, it's you definately! I was supporting the reviewers idea...did I said something wrong or the truth is to hard for you! In the end, you would be better served with an iPhone 4S, PERIOD! CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS AN OVERPRICED EQUIPMENT BY MILES! But this is to hard for you TO UNDERSTAND RIGHT?! GEEEZZZ!
Nice review from gsmarena(as usual).. :)
The iPhone 5 deserves respect. :))
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2012It weighs 185 g for gods sake!!I have a Nokia C6-01 which is a really small phone but weights 131g, I really love how solid the phone feels, it feels like I can throw it against a wall and use it normally again, my friend Galaxy S2 on the other hand, is quite big and light, it feels like you can broke the device with your hands...
Can't believe you people get to wound up over a Phone!!???
You are fighting the battles for these huge corporations and taking it to heart if someone likes a different phone to you!!??
It's like fighting over religion for some of you people Android v Apple it's so stupid it's almost worthy of a mockumentary.
Just buy what phone you want to. I'm gonna get an iPhone because I have had both apple and android and I found prefered the apple iOS and I really don't care what anyone else has to say.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2012It weighs 185 g for gods sake!!So tell me how it's going to hurt your hands so badly.
The weight only makes the device feels much more solid (probably it's not going to scratch easily since it's not using a very thin metal layer you know), and also it's balanced with the phone size.
iii, 29 Sep 2012so lumia 920 come on and rock the world...It weighs 185 g for gods sake!!
Alui, 29 Sep 2012Can't believe(some) people still have freedom at this age. We should all obey you master!:))cant believe people still post crap with their icrap.
Alui, 29 Sep 2012Lol! Don't you know what "arguably" means?:) But anyway, can you recommend a better ... moreI do...Nokia N9 (or the Lumias), SONY Xperia T, MOTOROLA RAZR HD, HTC ONE X/S...do I go on? Do you realize that this iPhone 5 design is the same since iPhone 4? Man, wake up!
Man, you're one of those unexplained blind people!
"BUT its maps app sucks (and apparently always has anyway which is the whole reason Apple wanted out - they might as well start from scratch on the painful road since Google was giving them a dud version..).
So you think looking at the above points which one is most important to you? Is it the Maps? get something else for now... either on the App store, or another phone.
iPhone is not supposed to be cheap and affordable. If that is a problem for you look elsewhere. Dont hate a brand cause its good and out of your reach. Work harder so you can get it!"
1st - every other google maps user on iPhone was happy and didn't got mistaken with it until this new Apple maps (deal with it, don't lie...it doesn't take only 2 years of research to make maps...is why Google is better in this field, they have 10 years of research and experience...Even the CEO admit it and you come here telling otherwise...well, you really are well paid off by someone for that or you're simply the most dumb person on earth).
2nd - If you see some difference on the camera from it's predecessor, you're even dumbier or a true believer! And the panorama thing, well I enjoy that on my $150 2011 Sony Ericsson LWW ahahaha what a ture revolution!
3rd - what the heck are you, to tell people if they can't afford need to work harder! I'm against that things if can't afford, don't buy, PERIOD! Because are sick people in this world that can't afford putting food in the table for their childreen but actually can afford an iPhone...what a joke!!! But going forward...if tell you the iPhone is overpriced I'm not saying that I don't have the money to buy it...I actually have but I prefer spending it on one that deserves it like Motorla Razr HD or Sony Xperia V (and even though, almost less €200) because in the end spending €500 on a high-end is more than enough to be well served...and I mean well served! iPhone 5 total factory cost was around €200 and it is sold at €700, this sir is a Robbery!!!
androidlover, 29 Sep 2012cant believe people still buy this crap in this age.They really need to learn to save money.Can't believe(some) people still have freedom at this age. We should all obey you master!:))
Wow, this is the one of, if not THE most complete and most objective iPhone 5 reviews on internet.
AnonD-73776, 29 Sep 2012"Secondly, the iPhone 5 is arguably the best looking of all the smartphones around" ... moreLol! Don't you know what "arguably" means?:) But anyway, can you recommend a better looking phone?

You are a stranger to Apple products, but still you have the arrogance to criticize them just from hearsay.
Nobody forces you to buy an iPhone, you're free to go to the competition. I, for example, criticize (if I feel the need) only the products I use (SGS3 -lower battery life than I would like, but still last one day with heavy use; Transformer Prime TF201-a bit slow and the Browser had problems with the Fash web-pages and the keyboard before the JB update, the sound volume is too low; and the iPad 2-very happy with it, no complaints-I could complain about the lack of Flash, but it's not supported anymore for Android devices either, so now, it would be unjustified to require it for Apple products).
So, you are either a troll, or an envious person;)! I wanted also to buy an iPhone 5 but when I saw the price(659€ for the 16GB unit) I decided to wait:). But nevertheless, I'll buy it one day. And trolls like you can't change my mind.
