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...

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.

SOLIDSNAKE, 30 Sep 2012Apple = Louis Vuitton People get Apple products solely for the brand name. PERIOD! I'm n... moreWhat a delusional person you are! If you want exclusivity and attention, you should have all the aluminum exterior replaced with white gold and stud your iphone with diamonds!
Lame... Facebook sync is sub-par.
If you're buying this phone you're simply dumb, I can do much more with my HTC EVO 3D, and that's a device from almost 2 years ago, and the price is less than half of iPhone 5.
The apple iphone 5 feels lite and cheap! Looks like crap compared to the 4s. No one wants a liter phone, they want a strong sturdy solid phone. Apple sux, they will never give you a phone with all the bells and whistles, only plus are the camera and O/S!
it's funny how gsmarena claims the black one looks magnificent but yet almost the entire review is done on the white one. LOL
A mono speaker and mono sound recording in Video? whattttt? i have the white iphone 5. although many people of the world picked the black, white one just wow'ed me instead.
Smoother UI? Apple Macbook is smoother than Microsoft ,y all around the world is using Microsoft rather than mac? And if android is bad then y still alot of ppl using? Try it and noe the different..Buggati Veyron is the most fast car but doesn't mean japanese custom mod sport car can't beat it...something u don't really noe and because 1 weakness mean it is bad...
Sry for my poor english...
Look GSMArena, you only need to say this. Main disadvantages: LOCKED INTO APPLE.

Adding extra RAM has the effect that it will increase power consumptio... moreIf ram does not really nid to upgrade ,then y iphone 5 nid 1gb of ram instead of 512 mb ?
And then y now day laptop with battery nid higher ram if maker already know more ram will cause more power consumption?
Apple = LV? As far as I am concerned, you will not impress anyone with any iPhone..... Nobody cares about phones.... I have SGS3 and nice collection of PANERAI watches......... And if I wanted to impress anyone I guess I would have way better chance to do so ;-)
