    Hi imore members , so happy i did buy my first ever idevice 5s , i always admire the well design along with top notch quality of iphones but i must say what kept me away from apple is their policy with their OS no bluetooth with others ,simplecity that is near foolproof is not exactly what power users looking after and small screen is not an option for ebooks or exensive web surfing . is 5s dimensions enough for me now that i've bought one after many years denying apple surely not enough but since i have note 3 which could easily cover beautifully this demand it's ok so far , 5s for everything else . it's actually more awsome than i thought . almost zero lagging , nice camera (less options to control ) and execellent audio quality. Should apple paln to control the market they just need to widen up their phones selections along with OS . the 5s designers worth a big salute for this little one hand device ,second to none quality the most practical out there awsome.security shouldn't kill to openup more space for power users instead they could have it along with option.so strange such co. Couldn't find the guts needed to control the smartphone market and left the doors open for others like samsung to play their best shots crazy phones selection with real customizable OS.

    Ah I do remember those battery pulls.

    When I got my iphone, I was excited like a kid getting a toy that he wanted for Christmas. I set up my phone and went to go get some lunch, placed my phone on a holder, and as I drove around, the phone gleamed around it's chamfered edge from the sun, I drove around with a face like this:

    My first iPhone was a iPhone 4 and almost instantly I knew I will always have an iPhone. I've only had a blackberry before that (smartphone wise) and it was a huge upgrade going to the iPhone. I was always frustrated with the blackberry even before I started using an iPhone.

    My first iphone was in 2007 so it was the original model. I was very excited to purchase this device. It was extremely expensive at the time and cost me £269 upfront and £35 a month for 2 years. But it was an excellent device

    But I kept forgetting to charge it overnight so at first my battery always ran out at like 1pm lol!

    I got mine when the iPhone was first released in my country as the 3G. Don't remember feeling much though. It just so happen that I was due for an upgrade, so I took it and got an iPhone. At that time i was using a Motorola razr v8 which I really love. I had smartphones running windows mobile and Symbian before but all left bad taste in my mouth.

    Anyway, it wasn't love at first sight. It did a lot of things well, but it didn't do a lot of other things too. Things got a lot better with updates, and the apps that were beginning to fill the App Store allowed me to do things I never thought was possible on a mobile device. Eventually it became a device that made my life a lot easier.

    I was actually "the Apple hater" of the group... I hated everything about Apple intensely, until iOS 7 came out. The looks attracted me, so I played around with someone else's iPhone, and yeah... I traded my Huawei Ascend P6 for an iPhone 4S a few weeks later. Had to get used to the much tinier screen, but I couldn't be happier. I was ashamed to admit I got an iPhone, though.

    My first iPhone and smartphone was the 64 GB iPhone 4S, which I got in December 2011. Before that I was on T-Mobile with my parents. All of us had cheap Samsung/Motorola/LG flip phones and we were on a family plan. When I bought the 4S, I switched to Verizon. I then was the only one on the Verizon plan and my parents were still on T-Mobile with flip phones. Then in March 2013 I got the iPhone 5. At that point in around May my parents came onto my Verizon plan and got the iPhone 4 (my dad's phone) and the 4S (my mom's phone). Back then, I wasn't into anything tech unlike now. Now, I am on the iPhone 5s, and I follow Apple tech news every day.

    I came from Android, and was immediately impressed with how smooth and clean iOS is.

    It didn't do much back then but to be honest it look like the sleekest consumer device I have seen. Music on it rocked.

    I got the original iPhone which seems like a million years ago now. It felt incredible. No one had ever seen anything like it when it came out and it blew my mind that I essentially had a supercomputer in the palm of my hand.

    My first iPhone was the 3G. I wanted the original iPhone, but I let the salesperson at AT&T talk me into the HTC Tilt instead. I have always regretted not getting the original iPhone. The Tilt was a piece of junk. I remember when in got the 3G, I thought it was the most beautiful device I had ever seen. It was extremely fast compared to any other smartphone I had experienced. I do remember thinking how awesome the video playback was on it. I did have a very difficult time with the keyboard though. I was a lot better with the Tilt and my BlackBerry.

    Relieved. I came from a sh*tty Android and when I got the 5s, I never felt happier. No more lagging, no more shutting off, no more freezing, etc, it was very reliable. I still like Android but the iPhone is just the best overall smartphone. It just works.
