    Well I read all replies from beginning to end and I don't own an iPhone 5 yet still using my 4s. Was jail broken now its running good old ios6. Not sure why I did that. Anyway I hope that when people see others post count they don't take that as being trolls. I love my iPhone and my son has an ip4 as well 3GS before that. So I understand and I get how frustrating it could be to see a post and attack it automatically cause someone said I don't like this or that. Is it really that hard to just ignore such posts? I don't think so. Anyway just wanted to let you all know that I've been a member here although my post count is not high I'm always reading and learning just so that someday I can assist with something I learned here. I apologize for my long post but I just couldn't stop typing once I started.
    Those of us who spend a lot of time in this forum do find it difficult to ignore certain posts periodically. We are human, after all. Anyway, many of us spend a great deal of our time trying to help users solve their i-device problems and it's frustrating to read posts by people who create post after post bashing the device and/or iOS and fail to provide any information that might be helpful in finding a solution. Don't get me wrong. I understand people get frustrated with their devices when it doesn't perform in the manner they thought, but to be fair, not everyone who owns an iPhone or any smartphone for that matter is intelligent enough to operate one, in my opinion. Anyway, thank you for your comment. I appreciate it.

    With what? There are any number of various viewpoints expressed in this thread... and without any context (quoted message to which you are responding/agreeing), it's hard to tell.

    OP you are right that the iPhone 5 isn't as good as the 4, it's 100X better!

    I agree that TheBigNewt can't confirm that 90% of the issues are user problems, but I think he's pretty much spot on when he says that every new phone is accompanied by a "my battery has issues" thread. Talk a walk over to Phandroid forums and see.

    Here are a few threads from there plus a few from other forums just to illustrate my point. I could probably find one thread on poor battery life for every current phone on the market, but life is too short and i'm not going to do that.

    Sony Xperia X10
    Having bad Battery Life? Read this. - xda-developers

    Getting bored finding these threads now. My point, not aimed at anyone in particular, is that every single phone manufacturer has an army of malcontent users who have issues with their batteries and whilst one person might get a great battery life on the SGS3 and horrible battery life on the iPhone for example, others (like me) will get horrible battery life on the S3 and great battery life on the iPhone 5. Even within the same brand and model, some phones are better than others and battery life can and does vary wildly; we've seen that here on iMore and you can see it in the threads linked above from other forums

    It's also the same with any number of other brands and products in the wider world. It's why many countries have 'Lemon Laws'.

    I totally disagree. Everything about the iPhone 5 is better than my iPhone 4. maybe minus the map. Battery life is good even if it's on LTE now. It's blazing fast, love that it's lighter and taller.

    Perfect! Yes iphone 5 is better because of new applications and new size. Although for iPhone 4 users those who have upgraded their phones, should go for those App development companies those have good knowledge of application development along with the On board team of experienced app developers. iPhone 5 For Developers letting them well versed with the not only iOS 6 framework but also about the iOS 6 SDK, its features and the powerful tools, which in turn enables them to create innovative apps for iPhone 5 quickly.

    My battery life is better & LTE signal has been outstanding.

    Not really sure what you're talking about here.

    This has been my experience, too. In fact, two areas on my drive to work where I ALWAYS dropped calls are fine now-no problems, no dropped calls.
