Summary

"A remarkably slim design that still makes room for a larger display and a faster chip. Ultrafast wireless that doesn’t sacrifice battery life. And all-new headphones designed to sound great and fit comfortably. So much went into this iPhone. So you could get even more out of it."

“Good job Apple”

Written on: 05/09/2014 by john.abb (10 reviews written)

Iphone 5 is one of the most good looking phone ever. Great desigh, smooth lines and nice intrerface are the stenghts of this phone. I am a huge Apple product lover, and this product is better than Iphone 5c somentimes. It has all I need. The system doesn't freeze, and the phone works really really fast. I like the black version more than a white one, but this is just my oppinion. Oh yeah, the guys frop Apple store are great as well. See you!… Read Full Review

“Stay Away, To Clever For It's Own Good!”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by claremartin31 (2 reviews written)

The iPhone 5 is the smartest and best looking phone I have ever owned. Unfortunately it seems to the main function very badly which is make or take calls. The internet is good, very fast, the apps work well and the screen size is much better than the iPhone 4. 

iTunes, the recent update with iTunes now stores your music off your phone and now on the iCloud which is very annoying. The phone does not seem to be able to stay connected for longer than 20 seconds. I have sent it back twice and after

The iPhone 5 was almost exactly the same as the previous one. However, i liked the new screen size, and i really liked when ios7 came out. It was something...new. I liked all the applications you could download. I switched from an Android to iPhone. I also liked the battery life, i could talk on the phone for hours!! I loved how you could multitask too… Read Full Review

“Titles with 3 words or more are best! ”

Written on: 26/05/2014 by Nikolas465 (1 review written)

Having being recommended by Steve Jobs only last week to purchase one of these fantastic hand sets, I was amazed at the many exciting features available... such as calling, texting (auto-correct is amaizing!)and of course 'Maps'... I now never get lost when going to my local shops. I can't believe I had used my trusty Nokia 3210 for so long. being 86 years of age, I don't really like change. (I do love Snake though). Facetime is also another great feature, although I can't seem to see anyone I… Read Full Review

“Apple Iphone 5 the best”

Written on: 09/11/2013 by Amadish (1 review written)

Summary The iPhone 5S is not found to be very astonishing iPhone as compare to others. It doesn’t look thinner nor is it the lightest phone ever. Apple owner deny this and says that the in the world, iPhone 5S is the best smartphone and hold latest techniques. The iPhone 5s is capable to offer a variety of features in order to give explanation for its premium cost.

Written on: 26/07/2013

iPhone 5 is the latest version of popular series of Apple's smartphone, the iPhone. This is the sixth generation mobile phone and succeeds iPhone 4S. There was a lot of hype regarding the release of iPhone 5 because Apple's tech nemesis Samsung was also coming up with their own mobile phone, Galaxy S3 to make competition stiffer than before. People were wondering what this phone had to offer. Well let's take a look at the iPhone 5 from the outside features to the ones embedded inside the… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2013

I love the phone it's lightweight and has a very sleek design. The screen quality is truly a sight for sore eyes! The only problem that irritates me is the battery life. It saps so darn fast it's scary. My tip is that if you experience this problem go to settings-general-cellular- then turn LTE off… Read Full Review

“It just does what I want it to do”

Written on: 04/06/2013 by sense4 (16 reviews written)

I have had many phones over the years including several android phones and several iPhones. I'm not an android hater as you so often see, I think all smart phones are brilliant, but for me the iPhone just works almost exactly how I want it to. I use the phone for business too and integration with my appointments and contacts list is faultless. The battery life on the 5 is great and the larger screen is a welcome improvement. Negatives, well I don't like texting on it much, but then I don't… Read Full Review

“Much better than the 4”

Written on: 10/05/2013 by JustineVinyard (2 reviews written)

I have been the owner of the iphone 4 for a few years until last week when I accidentally dropped it. Although the screen didn't crack it has somehow damaged the software as it would not restore and had an error code. Luckily I was due an upgrade so I went to O2 and opted for the new iphone 5. The biggest difference to the phone in my opinion is the weight of the phone, its much lighter and would other good thing is that the glass back has gone and been replaced by something much… Read Full Review

“Disappointed again”

Written on: 25/04/2013 by Florence4u (1 review written)

I have now owned three i-phones. They are the greatest gadget i have ever owned! However the I-phone 4 & 5 are the worst phones I have owned. The I-Phone 4 dropped signal on almost every phone call! It became a common joke amongst my friends that the phone would lose signal on almost ever call. When I went into the Apple shop with my 4 they agreed and one of the agents showed me if you hold the phone in the wrong place that it would lose signal. I really struggled to buy the i-phone 5 after… Read Full Review

“A Fantastic Mobile Phone”

Written on: 07/04/2013 by Brookbook (11 reviews written)

The Apple Iphone 5 is by far one of the finest mobile phones I have used. I recently upgraded my sons mobile phone to the Iphone a few weeks ago, I just wish I had been able to upgrade my phone. I was very impressed with the Size of the screen and just how light the actual phone is, a masterpiece from Apple. The array of phone applications such as Face Time, is very impressive along with the countless High Quality Apps that you can also purchase. I really enjoyed the free games that come with… Read Full Review

“An amazingly fast and easy phone!”

Written on: 27/03/2013

It works amazingly and the apps are unlimited! There are so many different settings for siri and you can make her have different accents and make her speak different languages. A few things I don't like about siri is that sometimes she doesn't get the words I say right. Another thing that i don't really like about the iPhone 5 is that it is a lot thiner than the other iPhones so it is a lot harder to type on it. But overall I definitely think it is a smart purchase to make and that you… Read Full Review
