    I love the verge. But what's amazing is that after the supposed "downfall" of engadget for being apple biased site, android users have been frequenting the verge lately. If anything this shows that iPhone 5 is truly a tier 1 phone even from android biased review sites

    The Verge is a lot more neutral than Engadget/Gizmodo/etc- they don't seem to be Android biased (or anything biased) and that's the reason why many like their reviews.

    I was wondering where their review was, thanks for the tip OP.

    I've been a big fan of the core people a the Verge since they were back at Engadget.

    Great review, I feel like they hit the nail on the head when it comes to iOS 6. It's time to take it to the next level. Not that I don't love it. There's something to be said about the pleasure of using something that's so simple and beautiful. But more and more I find things I'd like to do with my iOS devices that are simply impossible without a Jailbreak or just flat out impossible. (Siri could be so much more powerful)

    Now all that being said, I'm not jumping ship, not this year.

    Well the reviewer DID say


    "Maybe you'll call me an Android fanboy for saying this, or maybe it's because much of my business utilizes Google apps and its communication tools, but it didn't take me very long with the iPhone 5 to start thinking about getting back to the Galaxy Nexus and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1). For what I do, I think it's a more effective, more elegant, and more powerful OS right now. What it may lack in polish and consistency, it makes up for in power and flexibility"

    It's strange that you bring this up...I am about to do the exact thing. Android is mature enough with the release of JB to give it a swing. The entry price to JB is $350 Unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus. No it will be A LONG time before I jump into Sense and Touchwiz and let carriers dictate my update schedules, but for the nexus and JB, yea I'd give it a try

    This guy is putting my exact thoughts into words. I find myself constantly surprised to not be much excited about the iPhone 5 at all, but instead drooling at the thought of the next Nexus phone.

    iPhone 5 being the Highest reviewed phone on the Verge says a lot.

    It's ranked higher than everyone.

    Josh is just an Apple fanboy, no? ;) If the software was better it might have gotten over 9.

    Currently yes. When the new Nexus device comes, everything is changing.

    Even Galaxy Nexus with such awful hardware (awful camera, awful processor, awful GPU, awful screen and awful build quality) got an 8.6. And no Jelly Bean, which is by far the most elegant OS.

    Plus Lumia 920 is coming, which is better than iPhone 5 at everything.
