"What prevents us from giving full points to the iPhone 5 is the amount of unused space at the front. It's the use of space that sets high-end products apart from the rest, but the iPhone 5 has acres of unused glass at the top and bottom. Need proof that a better job could be done? The Motorola Razr M has virtually identical surface to the iPhone 5 and yet fits a 4.3" screen of the same aspect ratio."
Its iPhone 5, not Motorola bro. Its the iconic design of the phone and i wana keep it this way i love it this way and i wud never want to get it shedded away.
I have read almost all the user opinions on the iphone5. I think i see the problem. Everyone with previous models of iphone are not as impressed as they thought they would be, and rightly so. It may not be such a big leap forward from the 4s but it is still a step in the right direction. Then for the ex-nokia owners (like myself), it's really something to admire. The main issues seem to be the feature list, and the screen real estate. This is where my own opinion comes in...like Steve Jobs said..." a screen larger than 4 inches, is a tablet, not a phone." How come Apple has been so successful with a 3.5 incher for a whole decade? For me the S3 and other huge screen phones are impractical, but that's just me. Regarding features.... To all the droids out there, see for how long will you be using all those features. After a few weeks, the novelty has worn off, and then you are stuck with an unstable, overheating phone that takes up too much space in your pocket. The iphone 5 is a proper business phone with enough features and available apps to keep you busy as well as entertained, while staying fast, responsive and stable at the same time. It's a phone guys!!!! If you want a tablet, get a tablet. I personally think Apple rules. They can do with an upgrade to the look of IOS, but it still rules!! Like i said, it's my opinion, and like another poster quite rightly said...."it's not about which phone is the best, it's about which one suits YOU best. For me it's Apple.
Aladdin_, 12 Jan 2013Warning DONT UPGRADE TO IOS 6.0.2... this is a warning to all please DONT download IOS 6.0.... moreI think there's something else wrong. Me and my wife both updated to 6.0.2 with no difference to the battery.
Warning DONT UPGRADE TO IOS 6.0.2...
this is a warning to all please DONT download IOS 6.0.2 for your devices.. i have an iphone 5 and my friend has an iPad mini.. and the battery doesn't stand 5 hours a day off the charger after the update.. this is one of the worst experiences i cam across with Apple.. I want to downgrade to 6.0 but iTunes wont allow as it can void my warranty... Really this is the worst update from Apple.. and they call this an UPDATE? Fixed the wireless issues and screw up the battery life..
I am an iPhone fan.. but now my eyebrow is raising at what Apple has become in terms of credibility..
I repeat DONOT upgrade to 6.0.2 till a fix is released or you will regret it you have been warned..
how come people be bothered what phone is the best. what is really matter is what phone suits them best. the only i care about iphone 5 is its potential on 3d gaming. benchmarking prove that s3 is quite backward than ip5. maybe s4 could beat that. but still playstore can't catch up with appstore. apps developer for ios is more advanced than that playstore. the only thing i hope is apple make much larger screen and use the igzo display for upcoming iphone5s/6. ppi could go higher with that display technology.
I have this phone and i enjoy it. I hope they do something about the low sound output on the headphones.
i phone 5 is a sick phone i must ensure.it's biggest limitation is its disability to trasfer data through bluetooth from other phone to this.this is really a lay-man' phone......yyyyuuuuukkkk
We are lucky to have a lot of options for smartphones nowadays. Increased functionality, battery life and performance due to heavy competitions between android, iOS, WP and BB is always a plus for us, consumers. I rally hope we can stop bashing each other for our phone choices because, afterall, in would came back to each individual needs, taste and personal experience.

I just received my iPhone 5. I've been using it for 2 days and here a couple of my initial observations. This phone screams. Web pages load extremely quickly, battery life is exceptional (at the time of this writing - 1:59 pm-, battery percentage is at 86% and I've been using the phone for games and browsing since the morning), the most intense 3d games are buttery smooth and the screen is absolutely dazzling. The feel of this phone is beyond premium and I mine had no nicks or scratches out of the box and was in a spectacular state. The phone doesn't feel light at all.
Been using Galaxy S3 for 2 months after having used iPhone 4 for 1.5 years. I think I made a terrible mistake of ditching apple for samsung. S3 = Call drops, over heating, sluggish, useless battery life, MMC issues (check google to see 1000s of complaints), Kies doesnt work as well as itunes. iPhone is classy, gets ur work done, can be used with one hand, better battery life, fluid. Only maps, motions, 50GB dropbox are better in S3.
first 3 iphones are good, but the last 3 iphones suck big time. The only thing good about it, it look nice. That why iphones are for girls or grandmas or kids who like to play angry bird.
