I have been an observer on this forum for quite some time and have been paying particular interest in the topics about the iPhone 5 etc. I already have an iPhone 4 32gb and have been out of contract for quite some time now. I have been trying to make my mind up whether the 5 was worth upgrading to but after dithering for the last few months I took the plunge yesterday! I was anxious about unboxing the phone when at home because of all the stories of damaged iPhones out of the box but I shouldn't have worried. My iphone 5 16gb black was flawless! The main positives of the upgrade are that it is quicker than my previous iphone 4, lighter, longer, better camera and to me feels as good build quality wise as all other iPhones. Overall I'm very happy and now just have to sell my old iphone !
