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

“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

“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

“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

“I really love this phone”

Written on: 10/01/2013 by Chackney (3 reviews written)

As before now the only smart phone I have had was a pretty basic Blackberry Curve, the iPhone was a massive step up, and I love it! I think it's fantastic, although I can understand why people who are used to iphone's or other smartphones aren't that impressed. Personally, I think that if you don't have an iPhone 4 or 4s this would be a great choice, however some of my friends who have upgraded from a 4 or 4s are of the opinion that it's not worth the upgrade. Overall, don't upgrade if you… Read Full Review

“The Best Thing I own”

Written on: 01/11/2012 by jonseaman (1 review written)

The iPhone 5 is my fourth iPhone I am completely devoted to apple products and therefore people could say I am biased but I am positive it is the best you can get. It's a brilliant iPod, camera, media player, portable office and of course it's a phone. The best parts of the iPhone 5 are that it is easy to use, well built, stylish and it performs well in all areas. I use my phone all day every day, but even so don't use the camera function much or the media player (I also have iPad for that)… Read Full Review

“It's an iPhone5”

Written on: 24/10/2012 by Tellthetruth007 (1 review written)

What can I say it's an iPhone5, had a galaxy S3 in 3 week. Loved it, hated it, loved it, then wanted a stamp on it. I liked was the whistle notification so I copied the file and now I have an iPhone5 but whistles like a galaxy S3. If you don't want one you're a mental… Read Full Review

Diablo944's reply to Glenc's Comment

Written on: 03/11/2012

personally, I would say no. I upgraded from a 4 to a 5, but in many ways think the weight and feel of the 4/4s is better than the 5. though at the same time the slimmer/ longer / lighter feel has equal merits. I think the biggest issue is that if you came from an iphone 3 to a 4 the difference was massive. from a 4 to a 4s was negligible in real terms, and I feel like the 4/4s to a 5 is equally negligible. it isn't a revolution, its more evolution. Dont get me wrong, its nice, but it isnt a huge leap
