"almost perfect"

Of course iOS is dated, but it just works and it works very well. I came from Android and I do miss a lot of things about it, But I am enjoying a lot of the iPhone features. Yes Android is catching up in the app department, But iOS apps always seem really well polished and consumer friendly from the get go, Apple just keeps the standards high and I appreciate that.

Hardware is amazing, but fragile. Not having a case on it is like playing Russian roulette, It can take some punishment, but it will come out with some blemishes. Screen is amazing. I know big screens are the trend but I am good with a smaller one. Easier to fit in my pocket, but more importantly more secure. Many times I was at a restaurant and across the room I could read full texts from somebody not so secretive about their text conversation. It is like that with any phone but the bigger the screen the more people will see what you don't want them to see.

My biggest issue is the call quality. I do get decent reception in my house. Even so the call would not drop. Just like stop. I could hear the other party but they could not hear me. That happened both on my and my wife's iPhone 5. That could be a carrier issue, but I know on my Galaxy S that never happened.

Summing it up. iPhone 5 is the best iPhone so far, it has it drawbacks but no mobile phone is perfect. As long as you know what you are buying into with Apple you will be satisfied.

Apple iPhone 5 Written Review...
At long last, the long-rumored Apple iPhone 5 arrived last Friday and it is easily the most well put together smartphone we at PhoneDog have gotten our hands on. With a much-anticipated larger display, LTE connectivity, improved optics and oodles of enhancements in iOS 6, the iPhone 5 is exactly what Apple needed to stoke the fire. The iPhone 5 has everything it needed to both rack in new customers and keep upgrading customers content. Nothing more, nothing less. With prices starting... more...
