Disadvantages: No more Google Maps and YouTube
I have grown up with Apple devices in my life, and have to say, the iPhone 5 is truly amazing!
The iPhone 5 comes packaged in a tiny box, as many Apple products do get shipped in the smallest packaging possible. Inside the box, you get, your iPhone 5 with latest iOS installed. You also get the new Apple EarPods, Apple have taken it into their hands to completely redesign earphones, and have done a pretty amazing job in those steps. You get the usual USB Power adapter, and also the brand new Lightning cable. The amazing thing about the Lightning cable is the size and the double sided tool! You can plug the cable into your iPhone either way, try doing that with the old 30-pin adapter.
The iPhone 5 is taller, but not wider that previous versions of the iPhone. The length hasn't been improved massively, but just enough to fit 1 more row of applications to your home screen.
It is available in Black & Slate, or White & Silver. I have gone with White & Silver, just because my personal opinion is that it looks nicer!
You can get the iPhone 5 in 3 different sizes. 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Again, tailor this to your needs, I went for 16GB as I feel this is plenty!
I upgraded from the iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 5, so obviously have made a vast improvement in that step. I have noticed many different/new features. Siri being one of them. I would like to see Siri get improved over the years as it will be a great tool, if it could do more than it can at the moment!
Apple decided to take it into their hands to scrap Google Maps, which has left many customers unhappy. The new Apple Maps isn't as good as Google Maps, but give it time and Apple will improve it massively! I mean, just look at how much more improved their other products are since the beginning.
The new A6 chip is as powerful as ever. A massive improvement on the 3GS and twice as fast as the A5 chip, which was in the iPhone 4S.
Summary: Absolutely love the iPhone 5, the best Apple product to date!!
