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."

“Meh”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by kirky2k2 (3 reviews written)

I've had an iPhone in one form or another since 2008, so I would like to think I know what I'm talking about when it comes to using them. I'm usually more of a specification over looks guy but the iPhone USED to tick all the boxes - it doesn't anymore, yes that includes the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Screen: the screen is amazing, I went from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5 so it's a big difference, I've just been given a Samsung Galaxy S4 to use for work and again going from the 5 to the Samsung… Read Full Review

“Iphone 5”

I loved how you could multitask too… 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
