I am in no way anti-Apple. All of the hardware in my home and business is Apple and I have had iPhones since the 3G, but having spent a week with my new 5, I've had enough. I am not going to enjoy typing this, and am extremely disappointed to be so unhappy with something Apple given the money I've invested in the company's products and the loyalty I have for the brand. The final straw is noticing the the edge of the band is just starting to lose its colour, with tiniest amount of silver just starting to wear through......and before anyone says it, I really don't see why I should expect a £529GBP piece of hardware to start to look tatty with normal use within a week. It has been used normally in the same way as all of my previous iPhone's and lives in my trouser or jacket pocket with whatever else is in there at the time. In one week my 5 looks worse than the just over 12 month old 4S it's replaced. The lightning cable is a total pain. I have TomTom iPhone 4 cradle, a charger upstairs, one downstairs and one in my iMac plus a car charger......and one lightning cable that I keep having to take everywhere with me as the lightning adapters don't seem to be available anywhere in the UK yet, least of all Apple itself. And when they are available I don't really want to invest money in a load of adapters that aren't compatible with the iPad2 that is also charged with the existing cables that I already have in different parts of the house. I also don't want to have to remember to take another piece of plastic with me when I take regular trips with my iPad and iPhone. The touch screen has been problematic from the getgo, often needing to be touched 4 or 5 times to get a reaction. I don't like the way it feels in my hand. The 4/S feels lovely to hold and use in a way that the 5 just....doesn't. It feels too big, too light and frankly, quite cheap and tinny compared to the 4S. The longer screen is great if you watch videos or play games, but for general usage I find it quite cumbersome. I know this is terribly negative, but there are genuinely so many things I just don't like about it. This is the first Apple product that I have fallen out with......The iPhone 4S was a huge leap in terms of quality and over all feel and looks over the 3G with its plastic back, but I really think the 5 is a retrograde step compared to the 4. Whenever anything Apple has been launched before, there's always been something ultra special and innovative about it that has set it apart even from its own products let alone other brands. With the 5 there is nothing at all really! So as of tomorrow my 5 is up for sale before it looks any worse, and I shall be very happy to go back to my lovely, chunky, quality feeling 4S....Just have to get Vodafone to give me a microsim again! We'll see what comes out next year and perhaps try again.
