Canadians, will you choose your iPhone 5 carrier based on the HD Voice capability?
Basically, Bell claims they are the only nationwide carrier to offer HD Voice, which provides the clearest call quality available. (source: iPhone 5 from Bell Mobility - Bell Canada)
I was wondering what do you think about this "new feature"...BTW, I haven't read any reviews about how HD Voice works in Canada yet.

I think it's a gimmick. My call quality is pleanty fine on the 4S with 3G. I think it's just a way of carriers to use up more data then require in hopes to make smart phone users pay more for data or to increase their allowance on data. If theres an off switch for it il be the first one to use it.

I'm also on the gimmick wagon also right now. It is just like all the 3D movies coming out. In time maybe it will become a feature, call qaulity is fine now but imagine a more natural call where you feel like the person is standing right beside you. I've had calls where I had to see if my volume was all the way up or I had to ask the person to repeat themselves. However I think this is for the non-techie people who will say "OOhh HD" that means crystal clear calls I'm signing up with Bell.
