Apple iPhone 5
Advantages: Thin, light, fast and very stylish machine. Very fun and easy to use
Disadvantages: Improvements could be made to the battery life. Need to charge daily if heavy user
My last phone was an iphone 3gs which had been out of contract for over a year. I decided to change the 3gs to the 5 approximately 6 months ago when the battery started to go on the 3GS.
Going from the 3GS to the 5 was like stepping into the future. I instantly fell in love with the bigger and brighter screen and the lighter weight. the 5 is extremely sleek, easy to use and much faster for internet browsing and switching between applications.
since the os update last month, I've noticed that the picture quality of the camera seem much better and have found myself using the camera more often.
I mainly use my phone to text, email, make phone calls or browsing the internet. It does all of these things to my satisfaction. you may expect more from a phone if you're an advanced smart phone user.
I particularly like the voice mail function where you don't have to laboriously listen to all your saved messages and can select and replay voice messages easily. This may be possible on other smart phones but I've not owned or used any other brand of phone since I got the 3GS around 2009 so have nothing to compare the iphones with. But I did use my sisters galaxy once and didn't enjoy using it compared with the iphone 5
Summary: A phone you're proud to show in public. Great and ideal for everyday and standard use
