i will buy it as soon available in middle-east carriers..want to wait for Lumia 920 and again Lumia 800 has left a bad taste in my mouth mainly cuz of WP its waaaaay to bland and no real customization options and those TILES :@ atleast i can jailbreak iP5 in 5 mins and install as many tweaks as i want nd change the whole look of it
reviews like this is why i have gsmarena in my rss feeds. fair and unbiased. i've read all others review of how they worshipped this st***** phone. how it lightweighted (seriously can you feel it?). brag about lightweight for half page. anyway great review gsmarena. keep up the good work.
"A nine-to-five job though, not the inspired and visionary piece of work we all know this company can deliver."
That's because the soul of Apple passed away October 5th 2011.
In the Philippines the price of a brand new 4S is about half of the price of the I-Phone 5.
Anybody remember the famous easily scratched & Dented Samsung Galaxy R aluminium back cover ? Now that what I called epic failed !
And this was the last chance... No more designs and innovations from Jobs! R.I.P Apple.
...I read the whole review and this is easily by far the best iphone 5 review in the whole internet !! Great job GSMARENA keep up the good work !
The iPhone 5 audio quality is the worst of all phones because I have never seen so very bad stereo crosstalk, -76.5, when there is no headphones attached, connected to an active external amplifier, and it is not good with headphones attached, -56.2!
AnonD-56416, 29 Sep 2012good luck to how ever buy this phone with his so much flaws..
today a 4 inch screen looks lik... more As opposed to some of the rotary sized android phones?
I want a phone that easily fits in the pocket, not a tablet. I have a tablet, my phone is separate from that.
Man, can't wait to get the iphone 5. The main attraction it is so powerful in such a complex perfect size package. And it's so beautiful to hold in the hand. Nice review GSMarena!
As always, a great review by GSMArena, fair and clear showing both pros and cons, while also having a good writing style... Anyway, I still think that the best review GSMArena has done so far is Nokia 808's review.
BORING....Zzz..Zzz..Zzz.. Same Design Same UI is look like Symbian with more 3D Gaming & sell reeeeeeaaaaaalllllyyyy overpriced xD
I would like to commend GSMarena for a very objective, unbiased review of the iPhone 5. Your integrity is the main reason why I am not leaving your site. Excellent job!!!
Thank you GSMArena for the most objective and unbiased iphone 5 review on the whole internet. Never compromise your integrity no matter what as this is what truly separates you from the other websites. Keep up the great work it's a pleasure reading your reviews.
not a total disaster. but i wont buy it. id wait for lumia 920. it's like this, i love the camera, but i think the lumia 920's cam is way better. i love the screen, especially it's movie friendly aspect ratio, but i'd rather have the bigger screen with higher ppi of the 920. and the supersensitive touch is also a plus. the design, oh yes, i love the black and slate ip5 but the yellow 920 will make the iphone 5 look laid back.
i think the iphone 5 is great if ur upgrading from 4s, but i won't move to the ios fam for this....
first choice: wp8second choice: ios
:Dmaybe i'd buy my girl an iphone 5 for christmas, but not for me.
i don't buy a phone because of it's name... i buy phone that would suit my needs.
i say that cause apple consumers will buy the iphone 5 simply because.... it's the latest iphone!
good luck to how ever buy this phone with his so much flaws..
today a 4 inch screen looks like a toy ..
this is easily the best iPhone 5 review on the net. Kudos GSMArena for great work.
Objective, concise and to the point with vision what future can bring. Compared to engadget review, one really see what a proper journalism can be.
Keep up the good work, looking forward to Lumia920 which might truly become a 'new iPhone' - despite speaking from an android hacker perspective...
