Picked up the i5 yesterday morning (having missed out on one on release day) & thoroughly liking it so far. Unfortunately, there seem to be a few glitches........

- I get 'USB failed' errors when plugging the phone in to my laptop. The new connector is meant to be usable either way round, but I'm finding I can only connect to my laptop/iTunes if it's one specific way. Not a biggie, but slightly annoying.

- Typing - Not sure if this is a 'bug' of some kind, or just where the screen has changed slightly & I'm getting used to the keys being minutely out of place - but I'm fining the keys not particularly sensitive - especially the space bar. Most things I type come out in one massive sentence, even when I'm 100% sure I've pressed he spacebar.

- & the big one for me - the wifi not working. After getting home yesterday it worked ok except once where I just reset the network settings & that resolved the issue. But now, I cannot send/receive ANY data over wifi. The phone is connect to my home network (as are my iPad & laptop & they're working fine), but it just won't send/receive anything. Have stuck in Airplane Mode - nothing. Let the battery die & restart it - nothing. Reset the Network Settings - nothing. Have now resorted to arranging a call with Apple Support tomorrow evening. Slightly annoying when this is the key thing I need to work. Hoping Apple can offer a resolution as it's a 35 mile trip to my nearest Apple store if it needs to be replaced. :mad:

Anyone else experiencing similar problems?

I can say that the second issue regarding typing is being reported all over the forums. The screen and keys at times appear to be less sensitive than previous iPhones. I noticed it too but I've actually seen improvements. I just typed this babble without issue.

The only thing that bugs me (no pun intended) is the auto brightness. Sometimes it seems to work and other times it doesn't.

I think this is an iOS 6 issue. I have an iPad and I have turned off auto-brightness, it keeps making it max and killing the battery. I manually set it now.
