"Perfect for anyone looking for an easy to use smartphone."

Display: 4/5 because as someone who watches a lot of movies on my devices, i like a premium display to view it on. While the iPhone 5s display is a great display, i cant help but be annoyed by the way it handles blacks. Maybe im just being picky but compared to the S4s display its noticeable.

Maybe its just my location (Cedar Rapids) but my calls are usually very choppy. Could just be where i am so i gave it a 4/5 in this category.

Battery life is not something that i have been impressed with on the iPhone 5. I will go to work with 98% charge and when i get off about 6-7 hours later my battery usually sits in the 60% range. To me, a phone sitting in standby shouldnt lose battery that fast. Maybe i have a bad device? I gave it a 3/10 although i was debating between 2 and 3.

Design, plain and simple, get a case. The iPhone 5 is a beautiful phone, no doubt. But i have always failed to understand why they do not make it more durable. It cant be impossible to build a nice looking phone but make it more durable at the same time. Maybe someday.

Apps, one of the key selling points to all of Apples products. They have changed the way we live our lives dramatically. If you want good apps that just feel like quality i would definitely recommend the iPhone 5 or any other iPhone/iPad for that matter.

All in all, the iphone 5 is a great device, but at times i still find myself wanting more. My overall rating is a 7.6/10

Apple iPhone 5 Written Review by Taylor


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...
