Call me a fanboy if you want but I love my phone, I had a 4 and a 3g before this so it is a worthwhile upgrade for me. I like the speed of it and LTE is like the perfect compliment to it. I just wish that I could actually use all of that speed on something and not just in short bursts so I don't go over my data plan. But yeah I love the design too it took some getting used to and I first I thought the white version looked a little weird with the silver back and white tops but unfortunately radioshack only had that one in verizon 16gb so I just cut my losses,switch to verizon from at&t and got it but I actually love it, highlights the phones feautures. The lightning is a welcomed change from the old dock connector, all of my cords managed to get some of the wiring exposed somehow and it was kinda annoying having to see which side went into the phone. But Verizon 3G could use some work but I understand they want to work on LTE.

I mean if you have a 4S then you can skip the phone but you would probably want to definitely get on around the time of the 5S or 6.

ME! I'm completely in love with my white 64GB iPhone 5. <3

I find it hilarious how most of the people dissing the iPhone 5 don't even have it.

Yup.. "Doesn't this feel like a toy?" I feel like to rip the hair out of these people! They are the sort of people who will find flaws even in the world's most white and rounded pearl!

I had the 3, then the 4, then the 4S. Now i have the 5. I love it to death :) bigger screen, much better color, and lots of other little things... Oh, and with LTE my cell phone's internet is now faster than my home net :eek:

Only thing I'm not happy with is that i got a 32 gig-debating exchanging it for a 64 tomorrow.

my home wifi and lte are neck and neck according to speedtest. my home wifi's peak is around 17.82mps and the fastest I've gotten at home is like 22-25mbps but that's if I get lucky. It'll usually be around like 15-17. Right now it's at 18.02, my upload is hugely lacking for some reason it's only 1.62 normally I would get atleast about 5 every time.

Another one of these sappy threads?

There's an obvious disconnect between a large number of iDevotees & the human race. They find their devices "sexy" falling in "love" with them...

Oh please don't you people have girlfriends / boyfriends / love interests, other than a cold inanimate object that's about to become obsolete in a matter of months ?

They "take their laptops to bed" then wonder why they "overheat"?

It just goes on and on ad naseum...

It's a bizarre world in AppleLand :eek:

I can see your point. But you have to remember (I forget this constantly) that this forum is filled with younger people who actually DON'T have lives ( like 25+ do ). Yes there are some wallflower types that find solace in tech, which is actually great, but it's impossible to get a fix on age.

In other words; best not to make these types of remarks, for this, and other more obvious reasons :D

I think people are just tired of seeing endless threads of complaints. This is just a way to distract from that and show that the phone isn't always part of the negative hoopla.

I don't disagree with you at all.

My post was largely in jest... It's just that my dry humor often fails to come across well in a forum post :)

What's wrong with people these days. I like my apple stuff but loving them sounds weird to me. Well I'm Finnish and love still means something in here while in US the word has lost it's meaning.

Right. Finlands got it all figured out, while not one person in the US knows what love is. Gotcha.

I'm also a super fan of my new toy. I came from the 4S 32 to the 5 32 and really like the faster speed and the lightness. I totally like that it feels like a toy with still all the power underneath.

As for the Maps app, I live in NH and for me the Google app wasn't really accurate here. The best map app in my opinion is Motion X.
