"What you'd expect…"
I'd been very happy with my good old 3GS and was reluctant to upgrade to any of the new square-design iPhones (still think the old design was so much more unique and attractive!) but it was on its last legs, so I got the iPhone 5, which at that point had just come out. As an Apple girl I think iPhones are the best smart phones, and this one has lots of great features (most of which I probably don't even know about actually). My only criticisms are firstly that it seems much more buggy than previous iPhones, which used the older, more robust software, for example a recurring (and widespread, according to Google) problem with purple lines on the camera. Secondly, it requires a different charger, which as far as I know serves no purpose other than to make Apple even more money through buying their expensive convertors for docking stations etc; this really annoyed me.Read moreLess
"Better than a iPhone 4 (though a bit tall for my hand!)…"
It is probably the best phone out there at the moment. I was a bit reluctant to upgrade since I was pretty happy with my iPhone 4 BUT I'm glad I was forced to! It is significantly quicker IMHO and the display is clearer. The one problem I have is that the increase in height makes it slightly harder for my thumbs to reach the upper icons <ahem
short-arse> So my advice would be, play with someone else's before buying and if it fits you then go for it!Read moreLess
