Apple iPhone 5
Advantages: Amazingly fast, thin, light
Disadvantages: Maps were a disappointment
The iPhone 5 offers slightly different changes to the design with a taller screen which has been changed from the previously standard 3.5 inches and a thinner and lighter frame which was hard to improve in the first place without it crumbling in your hands. This bigger panel allows for an extra row of apps or icons along the top or bottom which also makes a big difference when watching movies or even just flicking through emails as you can fit more of them on your screen which makes it more satisfying. They also improve the fast impressive camera which was impressive on the 4 and 4s also. The hardware is difficult to fault, while it feels slick and offers hundreds of apps, the map software seems to have taken a step backwards as it shows far less shops and businesses in comparison to the previous models.
Teamed up with the new 4G network this iPhone will blow your mind at it's lightning quick internet speeds which will leave every owner totally satisfied with the near to nil waiting time for an internet search.
Overall, despite some failings, this is still one of the best smart phones that money can buy you.
Summary: Great phone, keeping up with the high apple standards
