I went out at lunch to see if I could pick up an iPhone5 at my local AT&T. Much to my surprise, there were some available (3 left in the store), and now am the proud owner of an iPhone5.
Let me first say, if you have an inferior phone, such as a Samsung, it’s time to upgrade. However, if you are a proud owner of an iPhone 4 or 4s, there is no need to rush out a buy the phone.
First thing I noticed right away was the weight of the phone. It’s light as a feather compared to the 4, and I’m not so sure I like it. It feels cheap compared the the 4, like a bullshit Motorola razor phone, CHEAP. But, I can get over it due to the speed of the phone. Which brings me to the second thing I noticed, the speed.
The speed is considerably faster. If you are an impatient mother fucker like me, you will love the load times on everything from browsing the web to sending a picture through messaging. Apple really hit a home run here.
I also like the fact that they supplied us with the new earbuds, the “earpods”, which feel great in the ear. Unlike the previous earbuds, that would fall out my ear on a light jog, these fit snug in my ear and are much better for use in light runs.
What I hate the most is now I have to buy a charger for my car, charger for my office, or get some bullshit adapter. You won’t see me with an adapter, that’s some ghetto shit right there.
The bonus is the camera and the ability to take panoramic pictures, if you’re into that sort of thing. Cool feature, but how much will U ever use it? Still a neat feature to have though.
Siri? who gives a shit. You won’t see me talking into to a fucking robot.
All and all a great phone, but no need to upgrade right away, unless you had a broken home button like me, or a bullshit nexus phone.

those carbs got you fired up today! keep eating!
they sure the hell do.
I am a long time apple fan – but recently picked up an Samsung phone powered by android. To my surprise, andriod is multiple times better then iOS. I doubt I’ll ever go back to an iPhone.
F the iPhone.
And 2x fhe F U for carb back loading before me. So jealous!
Agreed. F ITunes, who the F wrote that obscene interface. You should thank Samsung for making Apple realize their phone was too small for people with normal sized hands.. Oh, and congrats on having to go out and buy a special I-adapter. Its a shame Jobs never hears of a USB standard.
The iphone5 is still too small for the hands, as the iphone 5 is only taller than the iphone 4s, not wider. I have an iphone 4s and it’s only manageable in my large hands due to the otterbox case I placed it in.
I hope they make the iphone6 a little wider, since I want a bigger screen than what’s on the iphone 5. Otherwise I will switch to Samsung or comparable brand in the future.
I still do not own a cellphone
What a crock. The Razr kicks this follow on’s ass with mustard. Already faster, already sucking too much battery power. Welcome to my world.
Screw the iphone I own samsung because they hate apple too
My iPhone is made of lettuce and I ate that fucker for dinner – no carbs and still South Beach compliant after 16.76 months.
It’s hard out here for a chinch!
Did The Fly write this? Sure sounds like it. The iPhone sucks, you still have a children’s phone. You went out like a sheep and spent money on something you should have been able to tell was the exact same.
This baby is still working fine!
more fun with iOS6 maps here
this is how dumb and biased and how you obvously know nothing about technolgy. ur just a fuck full of shit.

BluHorShoe, I love when people think they know how I should choose my products and spend my money better than I do.
You Fandroids are insane and I hope you are wasting your sunday afternoon opening up some horrid P.C. box and adding memory or some souped up hard drive. Every time I get on an Android phone it amazes how what a total POS they ALL are. Not only that but what a ripoff the whole OS was strait from Apple’s board room. Yeah keep on hating iOS and all the innovations from AAPL and keep missing the best stock in the market! I pray you are long Dell and Nokia or something like that.
Not only are you being able to enjoy your mp3 player in the car, listening to whatever you want to listen to, you are getting full advantage of this product by also charging your mp3 player. So, now when you leave your car and you want to take your mp3 player with you, you no longer have to worry about your mp3 player being uncharged for wherever you are going.-
