Reviewed by sam1234567890 (Currently owns)

One week on Verizon LTE model, coming from iPhone 4 (and before the 3G and the original) on AT&T.

Positive surprises: User experience even faster than I expected. Feels light and expensive, awesome in hand. Better battery life than expected. Maps and nav have worked great (in SF Bay Area at least). Many 30-pin accessories work with 30pin-Lightning adapter (like Wahoo Ant+ dongle). Siri is actually very useful. Lot of apps already optimized for larger screen.

Negative surprises: Verizon coverage worse than AT&T where I work and live. Home button click is louder than earlier models.
