    Default iPhone 5, 5 months later

    I saw the post on the iPad mini 4 months later and thought I'd do a post about the iPhone 5, 5 months later. How do you all feel?

    Same as I did when it first was announced. I knew I wanted it and am
    still happy with my purchase. Wouldn't use any other phone.

    Why not just post your review on here instead of linking us to your blog? Might have read it here...

    I'm on my phone and wanted to post it elsewhere as well, it's easier to post a link.

    its fine aside from a faulty sleep button that only works when pushing the left edge and the unfortunate long distance to an apple store for me to swap it!

    I'm not exactly a blogger, I actually don't post too much there other than app reviews that I share in Twitter and Facebook and here from time to time. I really don't see why people are upset about where I chose to write something. Yes I wrote on another and yes I put a link to it, it's really not that big of a deal. I really don't care about traffic to my blog. And I also feel more people would be more inclined to follow a link to WordPress than to a forum where they feel obligated to read through the post instead of just my post.

    Love mine a lot. By far the best iPhone ever. The LTE and additional screen space, the bigger speaker thanks to the lightning connector, the radically faster (2x) A6X processor make this an awesome iPhone. It's hard to imagine how it can be improved upon. I bought each iPhone at launch since the 2008 iPhone 3G and this is the first one that I think I might keep for two years UNLESS the iPhone 5s offers a 128GB storage option in which case I will want to advance immediately as in previous years.

    Preordered mine. Rather disappointed with it. I had a couple hardware issues and for the first time encountered issues with the Genius Bar in explaining how the issues I was experiencing was not "by design". I've had iOS as my main mobile platform since 2008 and I've kinda grown bored with it. I've tried Android, Windows Phone and the BlackBerry Z10 but I find myself back to iOS for the apps and iTunes integration. Hopefully iOS 7 with a renewed UI and some new hardware with, yes, an even bigger screen is on its way.

    Love it! LTE, bigger screen, camera, and processor speed are all fantastic upgrades. Also recently jailbroke with Evasi0n so it feels brand new again!

    Has it been 5 months already? Time flies when you're having fun I guess. I absolutely love the iPhone 5. Granted, my last phone was a company provided Blackberry Torch (9800). It was fine, but this phone is great. It very rarely gets hung up (I had to do constant battery pulls on the Torch). It is fast and has apps for...well...everything. I love the thin form factor as well as the new larger screen. And when I don't have my iPad or computer around I can still do work on my Internet-based project management software...right there on the iPhone. Love it. L-o-v-e it!

    I've only had mine 5 weeks and it's the best iPhone yet. This is the first week I've been taking my Nexus 4 only each day and while it's nice I am longing for the iPhone.

    What was boredom a few months ago with iOS is now familiarity and security. Android is very powerful but it's just not doing it for me anymore.

    Got mine last December 9, 2012. It's my first iPhone and I'm loving everything about it except the battery life. Everything is perfect and great except battery life. I hope Apple could improve it for the next iphone! And of course a revamp iOS would be great too! Best smartphone ever. Coudln't imagine using other phone except this. I'm glad I asked my father to buy me this!

    I've had mine since launch day. Still love it.

    Overall speed.
    Slightly larger, yet still manageable, screen.
    Battery life.

    Happy with the larger screen and the way apple treats its notifications with Banners.

    I've had mine for four months as of yesterday. It's my first iPhone and I wish I'd got one years ago - I love it to death and already I cannot imagine using any other brand of smartphone. It's fast, smooth and 'just works' - my former Galaxy S had no end of glitches and hangups, some hardware related, others down to the bugginess of Android.

    I think Apple are slightly missing Steve Jobs' influence at the moment (for instance, I don't think he'd have released Apple Maps in the state it was at launch), but I can't wait to see what Jony Ive does with iOS, although it may be iOS 8 before we see the full fruits of his labours.
