    I've been buying iPhones annually since the iPhone 3G came out. The iPhone 5 is the first one where I've felt I don't really need to buy the next iPhone.

    Six months later, still an amazing phone. Anyone else with me?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Same here.
    i5 JB with fast LTE so I'm very happy.
    We didn't see yet what the next gen might bring but has to be something real good to make me dump my JB and go up to stock iOS.

    Well in my case it's the second. My iphone 4 was the first but this one is even better-no need to upgrade til the 6 or beyond. :D

    Same here. Since I got IP5 five months ago I stopped checking out new phones. The only complain was the settings toggles and jail breaking it took care of that.

    I agree with you. Moreover, i have iPhone5 and its the best experience from all of my mobiles. Now, i highly recommend this phone.

    This is my first iphone and probably my last

    the microphone apparently can't pick up. Doesn't matter who I call, I am having to pull the phone away from my face and yell into the microphone for anyone to hear me.

    The lack of a back button is probably the most annoying thing about it. If I was browsing an app on my android and got a text message, I could read the message and hit back and it would put me back in my app. On the iphone, I have to read the text, click the home button and then get back into the app.

    The lack of stuff like widgets is also a feature I thought I could live without, but I really miss. I used to be able to unlock my phone and see the weather with a forecast. I used to be able to slide one home screen over and see a full calendar. I could slide another home screen over and turn on/off wifi, Bluetooth, airplane mode, mobile network, see my data usage, etc all on one screen without having to open a separate menu.

    The only thing I like about the iphone is the all day battery life and the smaller screen size than my android phones. The OS is just too simple and plain for me to enjoy

    That's gotta be a hardware fault if it really is as bad as you describe (and you're not holding the phone upside down :) )

    It most certainly is. It's just something annoying but its by far not the most annoying thing about this phone

    I know some of my complaints just take time to get used to, but they all build up and make me so unhappy right now that I feel the way I do. I'm sure time will make me like this phone more.

    Too bad its out of the 14 day return period. I'm going to try to get it replaced here pretty soon. hope replacing a phone and getting all my data on the new one is as easy as everyone says

    Its a great device, I havent had any issues other than scratches in some areas. It does what I need and want, no complaints with the performance, iOS is bar none for me. :apple:
