A Complete Mobile Phone
By Ankur Kothari | 8 May 2014 | 8 May 2014
I was in search for a phone which could complete my personal and business use. Apple iPhone 5 satisfied my needs by far. A device whose design can be arguably flaunted for. Pros :- 1. Hardware Built - 1.3 GHz dual core and RAM - 1GB both equally contributes and makes the device fast. Some devices provide better processor and poor RAM or vice versa which makes a device slower. But Apple iPhone 5 has mixed up the best combination to provide a lightning speed. 2. Display and Camera - With 4.00 inches display, Apple i5 makes a phone handy and portable. The brightness, no doubt is the best in the market. With 8-MP for rear, 1.2-MP in the front and Flash provided, Camera of i5 is the best featured. 3. App Store - App Store and applications provided by Apple is the best and has the most number of applications for use more than Google's Play Store. 4. Battery Life - Apple has the best Battery Back up among all the handsets in the market. I purchased the phone on May - 2013 and its been a year, i have always experienced a day back up provided using Internet and other services all the time. 5. Technology - With Compass/Magnetometer, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient Light Sensor, Barometer and Temperature Sensor, Apple iPhone 5 holds the best equipped phone bound with technology. Cons:- 1. Price Tag - The only fear of a Middle-Class person. But Apple is worth its money. I would like to recommend this phone for a teenager to flaunt and stay updated with the outer world, a business-man to work efficiently with the prime battery back-up and a traveler who can stay in touch with his world using amazing apps. If you are a Student, Business man, Traveler, Gamer - Go for it!

Apple Iphone 5 the samrt thing which is available
By Salman Shaikh | 1 Jun 2014 | 1 Jun 2014
Iphone 5 is the best smartphone i come across. The ease of use that iOS 7.1.1 on iPhone 5 is great and very simple to use. Integration with iCloud just makes all the things available with ease across my iPad device. The security is also great and i never ever felt like installing an Anti-virus software on my iPhone during the use. The 8 MP camera gives excellent image during day and night time and while viewing the clicked images on PC or TV, the quality of image itself speaks for iPhone. Speaking of the Battery life, i have always heard negatively about battery life from other users of iPhone but i have never ever faced that issue with my iPhone. It gives me a great battery backup of almost 2-3 days when i use only Wifi and no 3G or 2G which can be termed excellent compared to other smartphone battery life.i mostly use Wifi for my data needs. Even with use of 2G/3G the fully charged iPhone battery lasts for about 1-1.5 days which is more than enough for me. The only feature that disappoints me is the use of iTunes to copy and sync all the music, videos, photos etc to my iPhone. This limits me to sync my device to another system which has another set of songs and videos where iTunes is installed as syncing this will erase the data that is already present on my iPhone. So all in all, i have none of the complaints with my iPhone and continue to and will always be proud owner of my Apple iPhone. It deserve 5 stars for its security, performance, camera almost everything. It is best to the young generation who wants thier all work in one go.

iPhone 5: Smooth Performance coupled with an Excellent Exterior Design and Perfect Premium Looks
By Mohsin S | 14 May 2014 | 14 May 2014
I have been using the Apple iPhone 5 32 GB since Nov 2012. I have used other smartphones with OS based on Android, BlackBerry and Windows, but no other Smartphone comes closer to iPhone5 from Performance and looks point of view.I have 408 applications present on my iPhone along with almost 600 songs, 76 videos and 905 photos but i have never ever experienced performance lag on my phone while using apps, watching videos. The looks ,exterior built and finishing of iPhone is excellent and at just 112 gm its so lightweight that gives a great feeling and grip while handling the phone and it feels worth of every penny spent to buy the iPhone 5.Next thing best in my iPhone is the sound quality which is best i have heard in all the phones i have been using. The Airplay feature is absolutely great which i use to view the videos and movies on my Apple TV. The ease of use that iOS 7.1.1 on iPhone 5 is great and very simple to use. Integration with iCloud just makes all the things available with ease across my iPhone 4 as well as my iPad device. The security is also great and i never ever felt like installing an Anti-virus software on my iPhone during the use. The 8 MP camera gives excellent image during day and night time and while viewing the clicked images on PC or TV, the quality of image itself speaks for iPhone. Speaking of the Battery life, i have always heard negatively about battery life from other users of iPhone but i have never ever faced that issue with my iPhone.

Fact of iPhone
By Anonymous | 12 May 2014 | 12 May 2014
I am using iPhone from past 2007 when it lunched The original iPhone, now i am using iPhone 5 till now i didnt faced any issue in Apple iPhone. we can afford the phone they cost because they have premium and quality. Who used iPhone in his life will never back to any other device like Android etc. I have a experience of 5 years, i have tried to go back but can't loss my money in Android. Dont think to buy iPhone. Apple is the one and only brand which is best in industry. iPhone 5 is best and fast.
