For all those upgrading from an old iPhone or an android, when you pick this up you will notice how incredibly light this phone is. The 4" screen was a great move by Apple, its not too big like the Note, but its not too small, like some say the iPhone 4 was. Turning the phone over you will notice the 2 tone effect on the bad which is visually stunning and feels incredible to the touch. The Glass on the back is meant to complement the front's strong Gorilla Glass screen, which it does perfectly.
One of the main problems I always hear and encounter is dropping the iPhone 4, and whoops, the back cracked. This no longer happens, Apple clearly took time into making a tougher exterior without sacrificing pure beauty in the design. Apple then solves another problem that some users experienced, drop calls. I immediately noticed a stronger signal and a more precise GPS lock on when using Google's and Apple's map software. The Front Facing Camera was moved to the top-middle of the screen which makes Face Time look much more natural. The Home Button also underwent some modification since it feels much more robust. The phone feels much more natural in my hand compared to some other phones I have tried and still feels strong despite its lightness.
The 4" display and the crisp and bright display make this a Better Version. The taller display allows more information to be seen on web pages and while reading,
I wont go over IOS 6 or anything of that nature because that is a completely different review. The 4" screen boasts an extra row of Applications which makes my home screen feel much more natural. I truly enjoy this software over my Android counterparts but that is simply a matter of preference. The Screen also adds extra space when pulling down notifications. I can now see the weather, my calender, a couple text messages, and maybe an email or 2 without any troubles at all! One thing I miss from moving from my S3 and my Windows 8 Desktop are the live tiles. Sure the Calender is technically a 'live' tile but Windows 8 and Android seemed to perfect it leaving Apple to play catch up.
The A6 Chip is dual core and doesn't disappoint. I thought Apple would go all in with a quad-core, but they stuck with a Dual Core Processor, and I understand why. Geekbench tested the hardware and they concluded it was twice as fast as the iPhone 4s (which I don't feel it is), but I don't disagree with how truly powerful the phone is. The phone boots in less then 30 seconds which is impressive compared to my iPhone 4, HTC Evo, and even Samsung Galaxy S3. Another reason Apple stuck with the Dual Core is that a Quad Core would put a damper on the battery life, which the iPhone really doesn't need considering I can't remove the battery. The Multi-Tasking is really good, just as I expected, and works just as well as it does on my iPad 3.

I was expecting, like many people, a removable battery to offset the not too good battery life. This wish was not granted, but I don't really mind. I haven't really encountered any problems, I use my phone to make some calls, listen to music, and text throughout the day, with the occasional gaming break. The phone could easily handle all of this without needing a recharge.
The iPhone 5 offers 4G and this was very appreciated. Being one of the reasons I upgraded to my Samsung Galaxy S3, I was happy to finally test out how much more enjoyable 4G would make the iPhone. I tested the download speeds versus my iPhone 4, and it downloaded applications almost 2 minutes faster! It also was streaming Netflix with ease and Youtube Videos are no longer a hassle.
This was a problem that many people encountered. The maps aren't really that much better from the first day the iPhone came out despite the updates but I hope that will change. When I was in New York, I really missed the Public Transport option on my Google Maps powered Samsung Galaxy S3. I finally decided just to go to maps.google.com and save it to my desktop for quicker access. This didn't solve Apple's maps problem, but it solved mine. I wont be using the Maps Application until it is 100% fixed.
