Apple iPhone 5 (GSM)

Reviewed by HotelQuebec (Previously owned)

iPhone 5 is fine for someone who doesn't use it extensively, doesn't need versatility, is content with a rather tiny display by today's standard and an OS and UI that are getting long in the tooth with key features such as integrated voice (Siri) and, especially, maps following behind the competition. Other than the subjectively pretty aesthetics which I personally think is not as classy as the LG Optimus G/Nexus 4 and the camera there's not much else that sets this apart from the competition. Compared to just the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 build quality and loss of Google Maps is one step backward but one step forward in performance along with slightly stretched phone.
