The iPhone 5 is one of my most favorite phones i have ever used. The screen is good! it is easy to read on and gets the job does. Battery life is amazing!! Battery life is one of the most important specs about a phone and the iPhone 5's battery doesn't disappoint!! The one thing that frustrates me a about the phone is that there is nothing that really impressed me about it but at the same time nothing really disappointed me about it ether. So in the end if you want a dependable phone that will just do what it is told and nothing more then you should consider an iPhone 5!
This is my first iPhone and boy I got to say: iOS really offers one of the smoothest experience! It is really a joy to use the phone.
One of the best web browsing experience, mail, facebook, vine, twitter, privacy per app, media integration with 3rd-party apps, little touch such as: tap statusbar to top, shake to undo...
Really good phone with great battery life (in comparison with compatition).
One big disadvantage is the limitation Apple put in: sandbox storage (no shared storage between apps), itunes for music, etc etc.
One big advantage is the Jailbreak, you can install lots of tweaks that makes the experience even better.
I didn't have this phone long - it just wasn't my cup of tea. A surprisingly small screen, coupled with the difficulty of modifications and the expense of repairs, makes this not ideal for my lifestyle. My main problem, however, was that I was quoted £100 to unlock it by EE.
Temporary Loaner phone. My nexus 5 screen cracked after 3 years. I didn't drop it, it shattered using the screen. Despite that still my best phone. This iPhone is the worst touch screen phone I've ever used. Only has 4 inch screen, and using this until the Google Pixel releases in October 2016.
A nice improvement over the iPhone 4. Not quite as easy to use with one hand due to the longer body design. Unfortunately the 5's were notorious for malfunctioning batteries that would cause the phone to simply shut-down no matter how much power it actually had. Apple replaced mine twice.
