Apple iPhone 5
Advantages: Lots off apps, easy to use, responsive
Disadvantages: Battery life, scratches easily
Having recently been offered an upgrade in my mobile phone contract and as a massive Apple fan I decided to opt for the iPhone 5. The phone is available in black it white (I have the white) with of course the infamous apple logo on the back. The phone is made from glass so do not drop it, a smashed screen is not a good look.
The iPhone phone is noticeably longer and lighter than previous models, now being able to fit 5 widgets down the length aswell as the standard 4 widgets across the bottom.
I literally use this phone for everything. From browsing the internet to Facebook to emails and of course sending and receiving messages and calls. There are so many apps available on the App Store, games, utilities, shopping and much more. Some of them you have to pay for but I just opt for the free ones as there are so many available.
The camera is high quality with HDR and also panoramic view which is excellent for scenic photography, as well as a camcorder, notes section, calendar and calculator as standard. And of course there is Siri, it's not something I often use but is good to send a text on the go or check the forecast.
It is very easy to switch the phone from ringer to vibrate or vice versatile with the small switch on the side of the handset where the volume control buttons are also located.
The battery life is not great, I normally have to charge my phone twice a day at least. But that is something I am willing to put up with due to all the other plus points.
The screen and keyboard are clear and responsive with a quick reaction to touch.
The charging port has changed from previous models so you would need to make sure you have the correct one. I would also recommend using a case as the handset tends to scratch quite easily, especially the white one.
All in all, an excellent phone, that will do pretty much anything and everything you want it to.
Summary: Excellent from Apple!
