Apple iPhone 5 (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
12 June 2013
  • 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. Plus, only T-Mobile's version offers HD Voice, provided you're gabbing with someone else who owns an HD Voice-capable device. The trade-off is that you get less 4G LTE coverage than on other carriers.
  • Pros: Amazingly thin and light design, Vibrant display, Fast 4G LTE speeds, HD Voice support, Sharp and fast camera, Facebook integration and easy photo sharing
  • Cons: Limited 4G LTE coverage, Screen may be too small for some, Maps app still needs work

Apple iPhone 5 Review

21 November 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s not like Apple has reinvented the wheel completely with the new iPhone. The sophistication and elegance that embodies the device is every bit as evident as the previous additions. But the overall finesse has definitely been taken up a notch or two with the slightly new design. Here’s a closer look at the overall handling of the handset and our take on the all-new Apple iPhone 5.

Apple iPhone 5

4 October 2012
  • Summary: The iPhone 5 surpasses its predecessors in virtually every aspect, and it is without a doubt the best offering from Apple so far. Despite the oversight with regards to the maps, it isn't quite the off-putting flaw that makes the iPhone 5 any less of a beast (especially since it can be rectified). While it isn’t exactly ahead of its Android competitors in raw performance, the fact of the matter is that Apple has packaged it in such a way that it works with aplomb.
  • Pros: + A speedier and smoother experience, + Improved battery life
  • Cons: - Horrible built-in mapping solution, - Lack of innovative features on the OS

Expert Review

Tweak Town
2 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Apple's iPhone 5 needs no introduction. The iPhone 5 is pretty much the largest tech device released this year, seeping right into the mainstream, even being featured on local TV stations where they bring in 'tech experts' to talk about it. This is when you know you've made the big time.

Apple iPhone 5 Review: Bigger and Better

Brighthand
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Now comes the question: is the iPhone 5 worth upgrading to? That really depends on what you're upgrading from, and what your needs are. If you are using an iPhone 4 or are ready to leave Windows Mobile or Android... absolutely. If you have a 4S, you can probably still survive another year and you won't be missing out much except for LTE connectivity. But if you can afford paying full price for the iPhone 5, by all means, go for it!

Review Apple iPhone 5 Smartphone

Notebookcheck
25 September 2012
  • Summary: It's a... smartphone. With the iPhone 5, Apple has introduced the sixth generation of its smartphone family. The Retina display now measures 4 inches, the case has been redesigned, and the new Apple A6 chip provides a boost in performance. NFC, the widely used 720p screen resolution and a carrier-independent LTE module are missing. What does Apple have to offer for a starting price of 679 Euros (~$876), and where does the California brand lag behind?
  • Pros: High quality auminum body, Appealing design, Thickness and overall weight, Slim Lightning Connector, iOS 6: fast (improved) operatin system, Up-to-date wireless technology, Good performance of the integrated cameras, Applications and games performance, User experience and touch interface, 4 inch Retina display in 16:9 format, Moderate operating temperature, Voice quality (noise cancelling), Convincing battery life, The high quality and robust case, that satisfies prem...
  • Cons: Battery and memory fixed, Older cables and docks require adapter, Maps software full of errors, LTE only available with T-Mobile, Only 12 months manufacturer warranty, EarPods (Headset) mediocre, Hefty price tag, starting at 679 Euros., We might lament the absence of a killer feature or NFC, but instead it's a rather minor detail: the Lightning-to-30-pin adapter required for older cables and accessories. Given the material costs of about $170, Apple could have been a ...
