    Yes. It's a great upgrade for a BlackBerry owner. But if you're on iOS or Android, a few steps backwards.

    Tappin and Talkin from my iPhone 5
    Could be, but for a mobile enthusiast its just a cool new toy.

    I LOVE all the competition in mobile right now. Drives innovation and gives us, the consumer, better products

    So got my iphone5!!! And it's awesome. Bad news is a got it in such a rush cuz I dropped my iPhone 4S and completely cracked the screen. I reaaaaaly wanted to sell it so new question is should I sell it as is or repair the screen and then sell it. Is it worth it to do that or should I sell as is??????? Thx guys. I just really need to get some money back to help cover the cost of my new one. And by the way you guys were right about all the good things you said about the 5. Thx again guys!!!

    Think it is around 100 or so to have screen replaced at Apple. Might just be worth it. But depends on how much YOU want to sell it for. Etc

    iPhone 5 is a great device ! Maybe you should wait for the iPhone 5s or for the upcoming BlackBerry Q10 (Not the Z10 , the Q10 )

    I had the 4 then went to a Samsung Galaxy S3 and then the 5. When I took the 5 out of the box, i thought they had shipped me the 4 on accident until I looked at the back of the unit and saw it was a 5. For me, using the 5 felt like home again. With the 5 I seem to have longer battery life and can charge the unit every other day. I also did some restructuring when I got the 5 so, that might be part of the reason.

    The bigger screen is nicer and the 5 seems to run faster too. I am in a LTE area so, that could be another reason.

    So my first impressions are all favorable. The screen like I said was my main thought at the beginning but when I placed it next to my friends 4s I soon realized that the two devices are nearly the same height the 4s just has more bezel to it. So plus one to apple for utilizing space nicely. The second thing I thought was how light and then it was. Makes me scared how light things are gonna be 5 years from now lol.

    Part of the "wow" experience for me was being able to change carriers to Verizon. Much better coverage in places I didn't have before. If you want to stream video, use skype or facetime, have more reliable logmein sessions, it just works on LTE. As for everything else, not so much wow. It's fast, it's iOS. But the 4S wasn't a slouch either. The bump in screen size is too minor to consider "wow".
