Hello everyone, just joined the forum. After having 4 android phones (2 flagmans and 2 midrange), I finally migrated to iPhone 5s. I waited for the new iPhones to be officially announced, and when I found out they are big ( I don't like the big phones ) - I went for the 5s as the form factor is great. Here are my first impressions. I hope someone can help with the negative ones - I googled a lot but probably there are fixes that I don't know. Pros: *I like the centralized menus for all apps in settings - for background data, for notifications and etc - Really nice! *Very smooth transitions, very smooth graphics overall *Really good built quality... but everyone knows apple products are manufactured well. *the keyboard is really easy to get used to *great call quality *Siri is surprisingly useful *The built in photos app is many times better than the one in Android. It organizes photos very well by date/location. Cons: (the first 3 annoy me the most). *Can't set default browser (probably that's applicable for everything that apple supplied an app for) *When typing, I can't tap and move the cursor to a letter in the middle of a word to fix a spelling mistake.. Maybe swiftkey will allow it once it gets released in 2 days *Can't have notifications on my lock screen without the screen waking up for each notification (drains the battery) *Unimpressive battery life - I always thought that Apple optimizes everything and they don't use the most powerful hardware but the one that gives extremely good horsepower/power consumption ratio. My phone definitely stays alive less than my HTC one, which already had disappointing battery life. Anyway, I installed Normal to try to improve it. *No app for location aware profiles :-( I miss Llama... *Can't pick up viber calls from the lock screen - I have to unlock first *App photos are thrown in camera roll (whatsapp chats' photos for example) - really inconvenient *It seems to me that the free applications in the app store are of not so good quality and I will be frequently forced to purchase (not a big problem, and might not be true). *Not-so-important-issue - Returning to where you were after double tap doesn't always put you back exactly where you were (after checking a photo of a piece of paper that contains the wireless power and double tapping to go back to settings - I was no longer typing the password but I was in the menu where all visible wireless networks are listed). This might be just a one-time occurrence in the specific case described.
