    I upgraded from an iP4 to iP5 and it is definitely worth the upgrade.
    Bigger screen
    4G radio
    snappy processor

    Maps may have been released a bit early but its a start. I hope that apple learns from their mistakes and makes it better in 6.1.

    I did the same, 4 to 5. And your reasons are basically the same as mine.

    This is what weather looks like when you open it.



    Twitter



    Game Center



    I mean, am I wrong here? The app store's Install button may take "a few seconds" to load but in that time I will have already tapped it about 24 times. Don't take this as trolling, this is constructive criticism. I don't know what else to tell you.

    You got something wrong with your iPhone if it is taking that long to load apps. My iPhone 5 completely loaded all 3 of these apps within a second each.

    I love LTE!!

    I know what to tell you: Try using network based apps like weather and twitter when you're actually connected to a network. Gamecenter falls under the same category, and you're trying to show us 1 bar w/ 3G.

    How do you seriously consider this objective?

    Upon a second look, metrion's photos aren't even from an iPhone 5. What a joke. Now it's IP ban time.

    You know it's funny that they talked about how precise the iPhone 5 was, you know diamond cut and everything. But when I felt it, it felt like plastic.
    Light, yes. Plastic? Absolutely not! Want to feel plastic, go and pick up a GS3 or Galaxy Nexus. You'll see what plastic feels like. My iPhone 5 while lighter than my 4S definitely has a solid feel to it. Apple got the weight right when they built the iPhone 5, IMHO.

    Yes, you're wrong here. The first two pics clearly show a phone searching for a network. 3rd shows 1 bar... Find a wifi hotspot.

    I know 'metrion' is an incessant troll, and should not be fed - but sometimes one has to comment on obvious portrayals of an alternate reality.

    Your status is searching "recherche.." You're not even connected to a network. Makes sense it wouldn't load quick buddy, and why it wouldn't at all. Nice try though.

    I too came from a BB 9900 as the OP did, and cam honestly say I was an Iphone hater, and die hard BB fanboy..... Ummmm, not any more. I literally look at my BB9900, and as much as I love her, I always feel like a Delorian is going to come driving through my living room and take her back to 1984!!!

    Gotta say, this Iphone5 is something fantastic. Only issue I have is the camera rattle, and it bugs the hell outta me. I'm a stickler for perfection (you should see my wife)....

    Anyways, enough trolling, and try connecting to a network, or WIFI and then try opening your apps bud... should make a difference.

    Doesn't look like it, does it? Using the wrong phone with no network hardly constitutes a point against the iP5...

    I was just showing an example. Of course I recorded video of the iPhone 5. Same thing. That's why I took it back. And okay, how am I an iPhone hater if

    Hello! Earth to iMore, I'm USING one!



    Answer me this. Why couldn't we get the iPhone 5 last year.

    I've only been here for two days and I already have infractions. I'll just stop while I'm ahead.

    Well of course you were! Only it isn't an example if you're not using the phone you are talking about, and if you force the results. That is called a fraud. Which is what you are.

    I think we all need a little scolding. What kind of community are we, disagreeing about everything just for the sake of it.

    There, I fixed your post for you.

    Yup, this is exactly what "Motoleo" said in all of his outlandish posts about iOS6 as well. But he too kept coming back until he was finally banned....

    Funny thing is, you can hide behind your new IP address, but not behind your ill thought out style of posting.....

    Actually, this is one of the nicer communities to be apart of. As far as scoldings are concerned, you wouldn't have to worry about that if you just followed the rules that you yourself agreed to when you joined this site.
