Reviewed by DillonLarson (Currently owns)

My first iPhone and pretty much everything I expected. A fabulous device.

Good Stuff
- Gorgeous glass and aluminum design (black and slate)
- Disturbingly thin and light
- 4-inch screen is the perfect size for my hand
- Retina display is still the king
- Cameras are about as good as I expected (I have had a bit of purple glare, but not much)
- Snappy performance
- Generally good software (iOS 6 is an OK improvement)
- OK but not insanely great battery life
- iOS, the App Store, and Lightning will continue to push iPhone forward

Bad Stuff
- No Sprint LTE in my area (or many areas)
- Call quality not excellent (again, likely a Sprint problem)
- Battery life is less amazing than I would have hoped
