The new iPhone from Apple, what do you think of it?
iPhone 5 with a new design and higher specs, still with the same width but taller a bit. What’s different from the old generation and this one? Not much really processor, designer, memory, camera and other parts of the iPhone. Keeping this short and simple to read.
Very sleek and stylish. I like the back cover of the iPhone 5, I went for the black as I’m not keen with white colour phones. (They get dirty easily)
Size and Weight
Fits perfectly in my hand. More lighter than the previous iPhones.
I do notice the speed and the quickness of multitasking. Heard articles that this beast contain triple core graphics which is great for our gamers out there. I was hoping to see Quad Core built-in, maybe the next generation will have it. The memory is still reasonable with 1 gig, would love to see 2 gig next year.
Starting from £529 for 16GB, expensive than before. I weren’t expected to see this phone would cost at least £529 on the market. It is best to get hold of these iPhone 5 on contract with EE, O2, 3, Vodafone etc.
iOS6 has over 200 new features available on many iDevices. One thing I like about the update is the AppStore, you do not need to go back to the home screen for each time you download/update an app. Siri has been updated to understand in many languages which include Chinese, Japanese, Spanish etc.
Apple has got rid of Google Maps so they have develop a map app for their iDevices. To be honest I still prefer the Google Maps, Apple map is very outdated. (Need to get their heads down and work hard)
So far I have problems in connecting my iPhone to my wifi network, it’s either connected for 30 minutes or disconnection every 10 minutes. (Depend on my luck really). Apple is currently fixing this issue.
I do recommend this iPhone 5 if you haven’t got one now, best phone in the world. You cannot beat Apple products for sure. iPhone 5 is simple, easy and helpful. You won’t be disappointed after buying this iPhone 5. 10/10
Had to get one since my iPhone 4 is acting up, the home button is kinda screwed; I had to press multiple times to get into the multitasking menu and 3 times to get back to the home screen.
Plus I do not have any issues with the battery it works perfectly fine, tried leaving it for a day and only 3% drop. Not bad eh? I even turned on the wifi and bluetooth, will do further tests soon.
Apparently my parcel has been returned to Carphone Warehouse due to the fact Yodel cannot find me plus Carphone Warehouse kinda screwed up the addresses, the billing and the shipping address. Even though they used the billing address, the house can be reached easily. I am not very happy with this service at all, from Carphone Warehouse and Yodel. I even called up Yodel about my parcel’s status, one of their staff says it will be delivered by today or tomorrow. Nothing came on my doorstep, had to call up and it’s stating the item will be returned to sender. So it takes 2-3 days to return the item, and another 7 days to credit my card. I should of brought the iPhone from Apple directly, what a waste of time.
Received bad service from Yodel, post your stories at this link

It’s funny to hear that they said it can support all iDevices, and purchase this wonderful package from $xx. Guess what? You don’t have to pay anything if you watch videos on YouTube, it’s free. Avoid this site!
Here’s another scam site, you can almost identify the site’s content is identical; the layout. Definitely avoid, and don’t purchase. If you did, ask for a refund or open a dispute on PayPal.
Whenever it comes to jailbreaking your iDevice it is always free from the internet, you do not have to pay a single penny towards it. Unless you wanna make a donation that’s a different story. Don’t buy anything from this website at all, they’re just using free software which created by the dev team and resell it for money just like any other jailbreak scams. Also the testimonials are fake, how can you unlock your iPhone 4S when it’s not even available yet. MUST AVOID!
Since the iPhone 4S has an upgraded processor, using the A5 chip from iPad 2. Furthermore their camera has been upgraded to 8 Megapixel, a nice voice feature Siri and the iOS5 with over 200 new features. Is there anything else to add to the next generation?? I’m sure Apple have lots of ideas.
What do I want to see?
Longer battery life – iPhone 4S has 8 hours of talk time, but is that enough? How about games? Most games drain our phones within hours or minutes.
Faster Processor – I have a feeling that Apple might use the same chip from next year’s iPad. Third core, or quad core? A phone with quad core is just unbelievable, fast and fast.
Design – I really want to see a new design of the iPhone. I hope the “Home” button is not twice as big as the original.
Measurements – iPhone 3G was quite light, ever since iPhone 4 came out; it’s like carrying a pocket of loose change. Less heavy, slim body.
Memory Card Slot – I doubt Apple will implement this, if they did I would definitely pray at them.
Camera – Hopefully we get to see a 12 mega-pixel.
Finally, Apple has announced the next generation of the iPhone and guess what? It is not the iPhone 5, it’s an iPhone 4S, exactly same design on the outside but different for the inside. They have managed to use the same processor as the iPad 2, upgraded the camera and added extra few bits and bobs to the phone.
I am very disappointed with Apple, I was expecting an iPhone 5 this year as my contract is up for a renewal in January. Planned to have a nice fresh iPhone, but since it’s a similar design and upgraded performance I wouldn’t bother upgrading it or even buy it. The only thing that attract me is the iOS5, which consists over 200 features and I love that Siri feature. I would love to talk to my iPhone and ask random questions
So is it worth to buy the iPhone 4S?
Apparently the iPhone 4S will cost you at least £499 for 16GB. Alternative you can purchase the iPhone 4 from £429. If you really want a high performance dual core processor phone, then go with iPhone 4S. I would personally go with iPhone 4.
Shall I wait for the next generation?
It is up to you. I currently have an iPhone 4 and I’m happy with my iPhone. iOS5 surely will go smoothly without any issues, regardless if I had that iPhone 4S. But if you have the iPhone 4, it is worth a wait for the iPhone 5 to be release next year.
Remember iPhone 4S is very similar to the iPhone 4, just the processor, camera, battery and wireless are different.
Requirements: Jailbreak iPhone
iWalkie is an app which 2 people can use their iPhone to communicate to each other. Both iPhones must have their bluetooth enabled for this to work. I have tested this on iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 4, works perfectly through 2 timber walls. I have not yet to try on concrete walls, hopefully tomorrow I will do further tests.
