Can't get any better

Posted on: December 9th, 2013 by Ali Abdo

I had my iphone 5 6 months ago after updating from the 4s and let me just say that ihad no problems what so ever with the 4s ...it ran smoothly in every aspects of usage ..in fact i loved the device so much ...but now that i have the 5 i am growing to love the iphone even more .....these are just few reasons why i think my iphone 5 is doing just fine and satisfying me among this rapidly shifting world of smartphones......first the stability of ios is just priceless , the camera is precise and the face recognition feature is perfection , the web browsing and social media apps integration like facebook are wonderful experience , the hardware needless to say is beautiful and the size is practical for daily use ......i like my current device as it is and don't think i will be replacing it by any ither device on the market any time soon

Very Well-Made

Posted on: September 9th, 2013 by Christian Duhon

Many people complain about the battery life of the iPhone 5, and I must agree that it is not the best. However, the iPhone charges extremely fast, and I have never had a problem with the phone lasting me all day long. Even if I choose to use my phone until the battery is almost dead, I can plug it in for around 30 minutes and it would be almost, if not, completely charged. The display is beautiful, and the perfect size. It is a beautiful device that has a timeless look and is made of quality materials that you don't find in many other devices.

Has it all

Posted on: September 3rd, 2013 by Antonio Rocco Russo

I'm a phone junkie. I admit it, i've had them all but I always seem to come back to the iPhone. Not because its so easy to use. Not because of the amazing apps, awesome screen but because the phone just works when I want it. No freezing up. No lockups. Nada! It just works and I can count on it. So it does not have a huge screen, at 4 inches however it's plenty enough to view everything with ease. I love this phone. If your looking for a phone that does it all then don't waste your time looking at others...go the the iPhone.
