iPhone 5 review: is Apple in danger of delivering too little with its latest upgrade?
8 March 2014
Excerpt: The excitement of the rumour mill, the titillation of every leaked photo led to higher than ever levels of expectation for the iPhone 5, and while the announcement was greeted with some derision at the lack of perceived headline improvements, the record sales tell an entirely different story.
Excerpt: Before we begin, I would like to make two things very clear: one, I am not an iDevice fan. Two, I love my Android phone. When the iPhone 5 arrived at Burn HQ, something interesting happened. I was asked to review it, the biggest iDevice critic in town.
Excerpt: Apple stopped selling the iPhone 5 back in September but that doesn’t mean that Apple’s flagship from 2012 has completely vanished. No, it’s still alive and well thanks to carriers like Straight Talk and sites like eBay.

12 September 2013
Excerpt: The Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C were just recently revealed as Apple's latest smartphone devices. While it is customary that the previous version gets a price drop, this time the Apple iPhone 5 will get replaced by the Apple iPhone 5C.
Summary: John Kennedy checks out Apple’s newest creation, the iPhone 5, and asks how key differences like a faster A6 processor, an improved Retina display, new earphones and new camera technology, not to mention a new shape and design, measure up in an increasingly competitive smartphone world.
Summary: This is a great phone to have with lots of important and critical improvements to the iPhone 4S when it comes to size, weight and performance. So it is currently a top tier smartphone with competition. The question people ask, is whether they should upgrade their phones to it or not.
Pros: Double the speed, double the graphics, improved battery. Bigger size, thinner, and lighter.
Cons: Lightning connector adaptors, Secondary Camera, Forget about Siri.
Summary: Now that you can get the iPhone 5 on all of the Big Four carriers, what's your best option? Overall, T-Mobile's version is a very good value because it costs only $149 up front and saves you money over the long run, especially versus AT&T and Verizon.
Summary: At the end of the day, the iPhone 5 is exactly what you would expect from Apple. It's just enough to keep existing iPhone users happy for another year and to bring in new users who are either brand new to smartphones or dissatisfied with their existing phone.
Pros: Gorgeous, high contrast display; LTE connectivity; high quality design and feel; fantastic camera; reasonable price for lower capacity models; great ecosystem.
Cons: Largest model is $399 with a contract; back plate and antenna are very susceptible to scratches and chipping; Maps app is under scrutiny; only taller, the display still may seem small for some individuals.
