iphone 5 it's a great product for Apple because people will buy it no matter what. The majority thinks that all these "new" features where Apple is really running behind competitors are Apple's innovations. My friends with iphones they really don't know the potential of the alternatives and since iphone is more expensive they just conclude it's the best. And they really make financial effort to buy something they think it's the best. So, congratulations Apple for your legion of blind followers.
wow, 01 Oct 2012yes, iPhone is best phone ever and Android is far far away.1-in my country the iphone5 16 gb is for almost 2 grands (2000$) no comment,
2-they cut the sim card to fit for as a nano sim ,
3-i love my iphone3g , 4s. i adored also the i pod nano
4-i saw a fake clip for the fake iphone5 but i hate to say that i liked it more than the real one
nothing much for the 5 and by the way samsung is taking the lead ,s3 ,nite , wait fir the s4 to release
i need to wait until the end of the month to use it... for the main time, charging my gn for 3 times per day and a burning top :(
As the review said, the iPhone 5 is stunning to look at and hold.
Without doubt the most beautiful and elegant looking smartphone on the market.
Here in the Philippines the 16GB of iP5 is worth 1,296.66 USD (just saw the price in a known mall in Manila), it cost too much for a smartphone with a limited things you can do. Yes it's fast, you can say faster than the S3 but it's not worth the money.
I can build a Gaming PC of my choice on that worth of money.
Apple's smaller just got elongated by only 0.5 inches,that's the best they could manage, any longer and it wouldn't fit in your hand they say. oh i was talking about the screen only,remember not to be too hard on it lest you should scratch it :)
I would like to see Apple vs Microsoft.
Meaning iPhone 5 vs Lumia 920.
Apple has the most loyal fan base, 5 million in a week is definitely a bang for any phone, most specially for a highly priced handset...
Has the passing away of SIR STEVE JOBBS left a hole in the inginuity department.has his legendary attention to detail and not allowing midiocre exesist in APPEL.has that been forgten by the now in charge itheir way APPEL has let me down.i hope this is not the beggining of a second down ward faize that happend whrn he left APPELE.it would be a sad day indeed for the world.

Reading the disadvantages list reminds me how apple and droid fan boys bashed the Lumia 920 for not having small things. Be most of them and even more listed hear.. including some basic stuff like mass storage mode, FM radio and iTunes for loading stuff..
Specs are lame, phone looks shit, and cheaply made, think i'm gonna stick with Android, quality and usefulness not ignorant,2010 lame design and cheap hardware and software specs. And if you don't like my comment and wanna say all that bullshit about apple this and apple that android this that, dude be real, the phone is crap, be real, just admit it it's a peace of shit, it's like in a comedy movie, you see a wonder coming from a far and when it finally gets close, everybody's like, .....that's it?.
I can't but writing opinion! Recently I've visited several Apple S tore(s) in UK, & I found all the iPhone 5 have gotten scratched on their edge after 3/4 days of used in the shop. Whether it's bl ack or white every iPhone 5 has scratched there, mostly invisib le in white version.
...& I really shocked! They could do better with same material b y using the silver aluminium unibody both on the black & white versions. & obviously that would be better looking too. Or they could make the shiny silver edge on black version.
however, I've a MacBook Pro, had a iPhone 4S but definitely I' M NOT AN APPLE FANBOY rather than a great tech-fan. Cause d, I've already used some HTC Android(s) & WP as well. Couple of years ago I've used some Nokia SmartPhones too.
From my experience, in terms of anodized aluminium unibody HTC is the best, they've made the standard of anodized alumin ium unibody by making legendary HTC Legend, Desire HD, Des ire S, 7 Mozart, One S(***) and so on.... Apple could learn from them. Really this kind of fault is not acceptable from an compa ny like Apple :( How could they make this mistake when they're making colourful anodized aluminium unibody beautiful iPods since from very beginning.
***at very beginning HTC One S had some chipping issue but t hat is solved. I'm using One S for 3 months & didn't get scratch ed yet, hopefully won't in future.
N.B: I don't like any cheap looking plastic made Samsung pho ne. & definitely I'll go for iPhone 5 but not sure about which col our I'll get.
