Apple iPhone 5 Review

While the iPhone 5 has not yet been officially released in the Philippines, hundreds of units have been shipped into the country lugging along a very hefty price tag. We managed to acquire our own unit to test. Check out our full review of the iPhone 5 after the break.

Announced back in September 12 (September 13, 2AM Philippine Time), the iPhone 5 is Apple’s latest smartphone and represents one of the biggest changes it has made since the first iPhone.

The iPhone 5 broke record sales in its first week so it’s not surprising it will be the biggest release of Apple yet.

We took a closer look and will break it down to see what makes the iPhone 5 the best iPhone ever.

Design and Construction

For the longest time, in the last 5 years, the iPhone has maintained its form factor at 3.5 inches. When it came out, that size was still at the top of its class.

Since then, the iPhone has maintained the same exact screen size until they launched the iPhone 5. What Apple did was to extend the height of the iPhone 5 to make way for a 4-inch IPS display.

The handset is now thinner, taller and lighter (despite the bigger size). At 7.6mm thin, the iPhone 5 is slimmer than its predecessor (9.3mm). It also weighs much less (112g) compared to the iPhone 4S (140g).

The most obvious reason for this is that the iPhone 4S uses two thick pieces of glass that sandwiched the body of the phone while the iPhone 5 no longer used a glass back panel but a thin sheet of aluminium. This attributed to the thinner and lighter profile.

The power button is found at the top side while the volume controls and the mute switch are still found on the left side. The nano-SIM slot is found on the right side while the speakers are still at the bottom end along with the 3.5mm audio jack and the power connector.

Take note that two of the major changes Apple implemented on the new iPhone is the smaller nano-SIM (you buy one or cut your microSIM) and the use of a smaller 9-pin data/power adaptor for the device.

The phone feels very solid on the hands, has that refined finish and premium appeal. What’s surprising is that the unit feels very light despite its size. The reduction of glass components contributed to that. You get the same grip as the old iPhones since the width is just the same but the height has increased a bit and ergonomics of tapping with one hand might be affected.

The back side of the iPhone is now made of a thin sheet of aluminum. It’s got a nice and smooth finish with a subtle color tone to match the white body of the handset. The top end and bottom end is still made of polycarbonate to allow radio signals to pass thru, unimpeded (which includes the cell radio, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth).

The biggest concern with this new design is that the aluminum back panel is certainly prone to scratches. The first thing we did after we unboxed the iPhone 5 was to find a soft runner case for it.

Display

The iPhone 5 retained its Retina Display monicker and the increase in display size to 4 inches meant that Apple had to bump up the resolution as well. At 640×1136 pixels and pixel density of the new iPhone is pegged at 326ppi. It’s an unusual resolution we have not seen in any other handset but its the natural result of increasing the height of the display while retaining the width.

The screen looks more detailed because of the larger screen and pixel density, the colors and saturation are even, and the brightness of the screen looks pretty impressive.

From experience with using flagship phones with display sizes from 4.3-inches to 5.3-inches, the iPhone 5’s display does not seem to be that far behind.

OS, Apps and UI

Nothing has aesthetically changed on iOS 6 although Apple has touted over 200 new updates and features over iOS 5 (see full overview of iOS 6 here).

The Passbook is a native app to help users keep tabs of tickets, coupons and store cards. However, this feature is only available in the US so it’s basically useless here in the Philippines.

In addition to the heavy Twitter integration from the last update, iOS 6 now comes with the same native integration with Facebook. This could prove useful if you’re a heavy FB user.

Apple is slowly divorcing its way out of its Google dependence and the latest casualty is Google Maps. Apple introduced its own mapping system with turn-by-turn navigation powered by TomTom. However, the map is riddled with lack of detail and wrong information to the point that CEO Tim Cook had to post a public apology about it. He even went as far as recommending Nokia Maps and Google Maps in its stead.

Multimedia & Camera

This is the first time that Apple has made significant changes on the earbuds. The old one was crappy and the iconic white color is what remains with the new earpods.

The 8-megapixel camera of the iPhone 5 came with a few improvements. We noticed that the camera shoots faster, has better exposure compensation and takes better focused images and videos.

Apple did not bother to increase the camera pixel count on the iPhone 5. Instead, it added a few improvements including a better more refined five-element lens.

This gave the rear camera better clarity, faster focus and pretty even color saturation. Check out the sample 1080p videos recorded below:

The camera apps is very snappy and we noticed a little bit of difference in terms of speed from the iPhone 4S. Successive shots on the iPhone 5 proved to be a bit faster and the stills looked more focused and detailed.

Check out the photo gallery below:

Fancy Gallery Error:
No gallery with the ID iphone5 was found or you have not created albums for it yet.

The native earphones that came with the previous iPhones were notoriously crappy and often falls off the ears due to its simple design. The new set of earpods has changed that for the better. They are now more comfortable on the ears, has a better grip and sounds way better than the previous set. They’re not really the best but we can definitely say it’s a significant improvement.

The speakers at the bottom of the phone is more prominent and the sound volume is more consistent and even (not too loud and tinny but not too soft either).

iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4S

We fired up both the iPhone 4s and the iPhone 5 to see if there are significant improvements in speed and performance.

We shot both the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S to compare boot time, load time for apps and web browser rendering. The video below shows the comparative speeds of the two.

For one, boot up time is significantly faster with the iPhone 5 — we timed around 4 or 5 seconds better boot time on the latter.

There’s also some noticeable improvements with rendering web pages and although we didn’t see any difference with loading apps, there’s some slight improvements in snappiness when doing successive camera shots.

Nevertheless, we don’t feel that this slight increase in performance is really that significant with most of common tasks done on the iPhone. If we did not placed the two iPhones side by side, we might not actually notice these differences.

The Missing LTE

One of the biggest announcements that came with the iPhone 5 is support for LTE. This has excited a lot of people since there’s been a lot of local news as to the launching of LTE networks both by Smart and Globe.

However, it seems that Apple has not certified Globe or Smart in due time when it presented the supported global LTE networks. We are not sure if LTE will running on the iPhone 5 units that will be released in the country.

Based on the limited tests we’ve made on both Smart and Globe networks, we’re only getting HSPA+ speeds that’s pretty much the same as with the iPhone 4S.

Battery and Call Quality

In our week-long use of the iPhone 5, we didn’t experience any drop calls. Call quality is good — audio is crisp and clear. There were some delayed SMS but that could have been due to the network issues.

As for battery life, we did not notice any huge improvements over the previous iPhones. We managed to last exactly 48 hours on a single full charge when using only SMS and voice calls throughout the day. However, once we run a few social apps, connect to the net via WiFi for web browsing and use the camera once in a while, battery life starts to degrade much faster. We’d be luck to last one and a half days but for good measure, moderate to heavy use is only good for a single day.

Conclusion

At first glance, the iPhone 5 seems to be just a bigger taller iPhone 4S. Aside from the bigger screen, we could not find any strong feature that may compel us to upgrade from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 5. For some, that improvement is reason enough though.

We believe the support for LTE networks is among its best selling point. However, that remains to be seen as the iPhone 5 is not yet officially released in the Philippines by Globe and Smart.

Nevertheless, the sell-ability of this handset is determined by the dynamics of supply and demand. Gray market prices of the iPhone 5 has pushed prices ranging from Php45,000 to Php60,000 each. And that is a strong indication that the iPhone 5 will sell very well in the Philippines.

    lahat tayo may ibat ibang reasons kung bakit gusto natin ang isang bagay, in this case example natin pagpili ng smartphone or cellphone, yung iba gusto bumili ng iphone 5 kasi gusto magpasosyal kahit na di nila gaanong afford pero pipilitin nilang magipon, yung iba kasi afford lang talaga nila at yun ang trip nila, at yung iba di nila afford kaya sasabihan nalang nilang masyadong mahal at no match sa phone na mas mura na nagkataong hindi ios, yung iba naman di nila afford at wala silang pakialam kung hindi nila kayang bilhin at masaya na sila sa kahit anong phone gamit nila, yung iba talagang ayaw lang nila ng ios at sabihin na nating android gusto nila, sino ka sa kanila?

    • Papapau says:

      Yet it won’t hurt naman to help them make an informed decision right?

      Eto true story, share lang..
      27 people.. Mga na-tulungan ko to decide na mag high end Android gadgets. 11 of them, iPhone fans. meron din 4 pa na ayaw talaga mag-switch from their iphones, puso pinapairal, mga tipong..

      Me: “After all i’ve said, bakit iphone ka pa rin?”
      Sya: “Ah, basta..”

      nuff said na ko. la pagasa pag ganyan. hehe.

      Its not much pero they are well informed by the time they bought their new gadgets.

      I seriously doubt anyone would still buy an iPhone if they will be informed. wag puso pairalin.

      Simple fact, Android can be complex yet can also imitate every boring activities and interface of an iPhone.. Not vice versa..

      Android won 2012 UX awards.
      User Interface awards yan..

    • Grade 5 says:

      Sir Papapau, ahente po ba kayo ng android?

    • appledroid says:

      mabuti nalang meron ako pareho kaya di ako nagsasayang mag isip kung ano ang better, i enjoy them both, even symbian and blacberry OS, no point arguing unless nagger ka

  2. Ian says:

    Great phone. expensive. =) But ofcourse class A people will buy it =)

  3. Dwayne says:

    I disagree about dun sa statement na bumili lang ng iphone for status symbol… Try nyo muna gamitin bago magreact :) I am using Android and iphone, and I can really say that iOs works better :)

    • Papapau says:

      Better on which part?

    • Papapau says:

      Are you referring on how hassle it is to on the bluetooth, wifi, tether, etc on an iphone where you can just click a widget on your android homescreen, or notif bar, or pop-up, almost anywhere shortcuts?

      Or are you referring on the ios6 maps which… oh ayoko ng ituloy pa yan.

      Or the all icon boring desktop you see everytime when you open your iphone against the tactical, complete, all you need information displayed agad on your android desktop?

      I’m not unexperienced with iOS so i can also say the same to you..

      “..I can really say that Android works better :) + explanation pa why its just better in anything…”

      Don’t use your Android like how you use an iPhone.. Be informed.. di kaya galaxy y ka?

    • Agent Pau says:

      Every comment na lang ba rereplyan mo? Haha.
      Grabe.

      Oo maganda ang Android. At ganun din ang iOS.
      May positive sa kanila, and siyempre di mawawala yung negative.

      Nasa tao lang yan. Kanya-kanyang gusto yan. Kailangan ba pakielaman mo pa yung mga kaibigan mo at yung mga tao dito? Di mo naman pera ginagamit.

      Wag kang magalala. Di kami gaya mo na pahipster kuno, pero pera naman ng magulang mo pinambibili mo ng Android.

      Sana lang hindi ka naka android ngayon, dahil yun lang kinaya ng mga WK mong mga magulang :))

      Naka high end android? Sus. Sa pangiinis mo, mukha ka lang naka Galaxy Pocket. Anak mahirap. :)))))

  4. Trizia Alexa says:

    Mac products lang nagtatagal sakin… But that’s just me…:) Kelan po ba officially marerelease ang iphone 5 sa Philippines? Is there any news about this?

  5. Dwayne says:

    @paupau relax…by the way, I’m using galaxy s3 as my android phone…kaw ba? :)

  6. CallMe says:

    @papapau

    A cellphone is first and foremost a personal commodity. You buy it to satisfy your needs. And when I say “needs” that does not include the want to belong to a certain social strata.

    You see, if I hand over an iphone 5 to a balot vendor, you won’t see that vendor using maps to locate his avid customers in the metro, or connect to bluetooth with his fellow vendors to share balot vending files. He would rather sell that iPhone and stick to his old phone. It does not concern him what social symbol that phone represents.

    I still see a lot of people using nokia 5110, it does not mean they are uneducated, perhaps they cannot afford the expensive counterparts, but what’s important to them is it fits their NEEDS.

    Going back, you will see a lot of iPhone users would actually own an iPad, iTouch, and a Macbook as well. We easily call them a “fanboy” but the truth of a matter is, if you have a Macbook, an iTouch, and an iPad, it would make more sense for you to buy an iPhone rather than an android phone. In Marketing, we call that exclusivity. But in layman’s term, we call that compatibility.

    Ultimately, you buy a phone that suits you well. Whatever that works for you. A person who does not use bluetooth as often may prefer an iPhone. However for someone who uses file transfer a lot, would definitely go for an android phone.

    So you can go parading your antics here! Thank you for informing us of what we already know. BUT you can never convince a balot vendor that an android phone is better than his Nokia 5110. Because no matter how fully packed of features it is, he won’t simply find the use of it.

    • Papapau says:

      Was that a counter argument? The point you’ve given is general knowledge ah.. except the part where you gave the iGadgets example..

      Satisfy needs? Question. What can an iPhone do that an Android can’t if Android features will be dumbed down to the level of iPhone? Get the point? But if you wan’t to discover more, you can on Android, but on an iPhone… well..

      A little tweak on your statement na lang perhaps..

      If your greatest “need” is to feel sosyalera, konyita/konyita at mag-mukhang mayaman(or ma-obvious na mayaman if rich talaga), then buy an iPhone. You’ll never get those kind of human needs with a 5110..

      So much for parading your seriousness here! Thank you also for re-informing us of that very old cliche, “what satisfy your needs”..

      Well, you can never convince those kind of people naman talaga. sabi ko nga sa taas, pag ganito na usapan..

      Me: “After all i’ve said, bakit iphone ka pa rin?”
      Sya: “Ah, basta..”

      nuff said na ko. la pagasa pag ganyan. hehe.

    @papapau I’m an iPhone user for 3 years and finally gave android (HTC Sensation XE) a shot. I have been using it for 10 months now and im very dissatisfied with it. Buggy, glitchy, transition lags (not as smooth as iPhone), and the battery sucks. Going back to iPhone and will never switch to android ever again in my life.

    • Papapau says:

      Seriously pre? Seriously? isa pa, seriously?

      Haven’t you been reading the discussions above? or you did but you just didn’t understand?

      haay, ayoko ng magkwento pa ulit. pero sige konti.

      Eto lagay mo hinaing mo dito sa site na to. Jan mo siraan ang 4.3″, 1750mah batt(1450mah ang all icons, boring wallpaper, na iphone mo), with live wallpaper, sense, Sensation XE with Beats audio.

      http://geekaphone.com/compare/Apple-iPhone-4S-vs-HTC-Sensation-XE

      Galingan mo mag comment jan, baka sakaling makahabol sa points ang iPhone mo, mukhang iwan ng sensation XE eh.. saan lang nanalo iphone? sa size? 3.5″ compared sa 4.3″ seriously again? mas maliit panalo? seriously?

      wala akong makitang articles na nagsu-support sa tantrums mo..

      Nga pala may tropa akong naka Sensation XE, 1st month of release, last year pa lang ginagamit ko na yun so i agree with the discussions..

    • feel na feel qohhhh! says:

      wow feel na feel ni papa ang arguments nya nyahahahaha so cheap and non sense! enjoy ka nalang kung ano meron ka papa

    Trolling mode:

    ge. go back on being boring na lang, so enjoy ka na sa mga icons mo now i suppose?

    well at least for now, rich looking pa rin tingin ng ilang tao pag hawak mo yang tiny screen phone na yan.

    pinagpalit sa sensation xe, at nagmalaki pa.. hehe.. geez..

  9. PPpPik says:

    just reading through the comments make me laugh. Ang pikon naman ng mga android lovers hehe. C’mon give it a rest. Everybody has their own choice nman. Some people say that if you have an iphone sosyalera ka na. I dont think so. Kasi ba its too epensive for a phone and if someone bought it, he’s already making an impression? mga pinoy talaga. TSkTSKTSK. Its his CHOICE and whatever makes that person comfortable – let it be.

  10. corny says:

    @Papapau stay COOL pre and get a life. Stop hatin’ you look like a low life bum.. can’t do anything? play with your android yeah!

  11. Callme says:

    @papapau

    Piece of advice: go get your own blog. Create an honest to goodness reviews of your android phones. That way you’re helping people decide the “best” phone for them the least annoying possible way :))

  12. johns says:

    I think you are just over reacted.

  13. johns says:

    Sir yuga pwede paki review din yung mga factory defects ng iphone 5. I think that sound so interesting. Para naman ma aware yung mga nagpaplanong bumili ng super expensive na phone nato. I plan then kasi to buy this. But i think its a waste. I have to wait na lang for iphone 6.

  14. Joan says:

    If interface lang ang paguusapn, android ako, pero hindi lahat e nadadaan sa pagandahan ng features, sooner or later, marerealiza nyo hindi lahat ng icons sa android fonr nyo e nagamit nyo na.. Well, i can say that iphone pa din, best os cla so far, android os? Well, ewan ko lang if makakasurvive pa navirus-an, just saying.. Maraming android os sa ibat ibang gadget, safe pa ba cla gamitin? Walang security..

    Halatang apple fan ako, well, unless android prove me wrong with their os, i stand corrected, but as to my opinion, i will still and will always use apple products, not as a status symbol, but because best os cla,..

    Aanhin mu pa ang ganda ng features/hardwares if ang software ay hindi ganun kasafe, kasecure…

    Ewan ko lang sa iba, pero ayan ang opinion ko.. :)

    • Papapau says:

      Lahat ng icons nagamit? Your using a superphone, there is more to life than icons, there almost 700,000 in fact..

      well, your an iphone user, quite understandable why you came up with that…

      Best OS ang iOS?

      Android won 2012 UX awards.
      Yan yung Oscars o Golden Globe ng ng mga OS..

      well, your an iphone user, quite understandable why you came up with that… again..

  15. yohanc says:

    for me, the beauty and elegance of a phone is part of what you pay for. ever since lumabas yung iphone 4, no other phone has come close to apple’s flagship phone in terms of hardware + software combination.

    isa pa, it’s not a status symbol. at least not as much as before. i mean cmon, everywhere you go someone has an iphone.

    • Dicecard says:

      its SO wrong to say that no other phone defeated the iPhone in terms of hardware. re-read the specs you will see that iPhone4s didn’t even come close to the specs of the OLD samsung galaxy S2 same for S3. applefanboys /piff

      @Dicecard
      You talk too much non sense. Your argument isn’t even a direct counter to yohanc’s comment. Yes, he meant no other manufacturer comes close to iPhone’s hardware+software integration at the time it was released and that is the truth. What’s the use of that fancy specs from galaxy S2 and  S3 that you are boasting if an iPhone with lesser specs is outperforming them by a mile? Its all about performance and user experience boy! A typical Fandroid never understand that.  Read this to enlighten yourself. http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/09/21/apples_iphone_5_is_fastest_smartphone_in_the_land

      For Fandroids, who live and die exclusively by specs, this is pretty devastating news for them, and I’ve seen quite a few meltdowns already on various sites.  What a horrible shame.

    • Papapau says:

      And they say iPhone 5 can compete in terms of speed. So where will you be using that power? You know that it doesn’t mean Androids are slower right? hope so..

      Besides, try doing this things flawlessly with your all icons phone…

      – can you do multi-screen?
      – can you load 5 web pages at the same time? can you use do sidetask while watching a youtube video (pop-up)
      – can you download a torrent while doing those at the same time in order to sulit your carrier subscription?
      – can you send your friends your mp3 or any file via bluetooth, wifi direct, or nfc?
      – at least, can you make your phone livelier? you’ve been using the same interface for 5 years for god’s sake..

      Why boast that power when you can’t even maximize it? Well, maybe boasting is what iSheeps do best, given their using a very dumb phone..

      I guess what you mean is, “It’s all about missing the great experience.” Specially with Project Butter..

The writer is a typical Fandroid based on his uninformed knowledge about the features he was crediting to Android. Who cares about widgets? Screen shots? iPhone has it for ages! Desktop mode? Most sites has it, and iPhones has the ability to switch to it! The writer even admitted that it was just his personal belief and it can be viewed as a biased comparison.

      “you don’t have any idea of tweaking an iPhone through jailbreaking (coz you can’t afford to get one) .
      – No you cannot do multi-screen even on JB iPhone. Better not get me started with jailbreaking, i’m well knowledgable..

      “But why would I do it for a phone? Too small..”
      – Don’t refer to iPhones, those are really small. Try using the phones for the big boys.

      “Lols! Look how ignorant you are. I bet you can read all that 5 web pages simultaneously while watching your YouTube! How useful is that?”
      – Ignorant? Have you looked in the mirror after saying that to me? Anyone, i mean anyone who browses the web surely has clicked the “Open in New Tab” button at least once…

      Ok let’s use your example, if your still watching a youtube video and saw other good videos below it, you’ll definitely open those in new tabs, so eventually, you’ll be expecting those other videos to be loaded by the time you check them.. No, iPhones can’t do simultaneous loading..

      “Torrent, >> 3 words Ate. “I don’t steal”. I have money to buy anything I want. Ikaw, namimirata?”
      – Hypocrite.. Thought your just a bad mouth.. Now the credibility of your other opions above and below will surely be compromised.. geez.

      “- can you send your friends your mp3 or any file via bluetooth, wifi direct, or nfc?
      >> one word. JAILBREAK!”
      – So that’s what you tell to all iPhone users? how many of them jailbreak their phones?.. 1%? 2%? just as i thought.. On a great OS, you can do that straight out of the box, 99% of what you can do on a jailbroken phone is already available on non-rooted Android phones..

      And don’t start me with rooting also..i’ll just laugh at your face.. Nuff said.

      “attractive, powerful, smooth and elegant”
      – Subjective don’t you think? None of my close friends owns an iPhone, for us, its a phone for gay people, “sister”. no offense to them.

      “>>Malware”
      – And then he just read the article. Now go back to that article and try to understand it ok? The investigation is general and applicable to all platforms/OS, they just used Google play apps on the study.

      Besides, do you actually know any Android users who got infected?.. None?… exactly.

      >>Fragmentation. (How many newly released Android phones can run on the latest OS eh?)
      – And how many iPhones can run the latest OS? how many iphones can run the new apps/features of the latest OS? Mas malala sa android, pero same lang talaga. not an issue.

      >>your ignorance doesn’t prove that the iPhone’s real power wasn’t maximized. You gave me the impression how cheap a typical delusional Fuckdroid like you.
      – Just a statement and bad mouthing? no proof? so how can you maximize your iphone? jailbreaking? it will just allow you to do what
      non-rooted/stock androids can do..

      “Until now android isn’t as smooth as iOS? ”
      – says who? says you? youre outdated, youre not credible dude.

      go to any product globe or smart centers, they have a galaxy note 2 there, Jellybean, try playing with it.. or you can just borrow your friend’s GS3 running ICS, that would do.

      “Who cares about widgets? Screen shots? ”
      – Everybody cares, unless your an iphone user.

      “iPhone has it for ages!”

      – Yup, iPhone has it for ages, but then they stopped innovating. Guess which OS keeps on innovating lately whom apple is copying now? yes. Android..

      Apple can’t stay on being the bar setter with their iOS.. They end up copying to Android even now. Having something for ages isn’t enough. ang tanong, kaya mo pa bang sumabay?

      Classic iSheep, dumb..

      ————————-

      Well, mukhang wala na magagawa pa diton i’ll be off na kasi yung mga malala ang pagkakabulag na lang natira. Open your hallucinated minds..

      Be informed, be updated, be aware… Read news.. Stop supporting evil companies, specially the most evil one.

      Harapan na tayong binabastos, pinapatay ang competition, lahat tayo kawawa gradually, sinusuportahan pa ng marami..

      As long as Apple exist, innovation will be hindered. Releasing 2 devices a year is not innovation for god’s sake..

      Thankfully, there are companies like Google who keeps innovating and bringing technology to the our hands, in a fare price pa.

      Wake up guys.

      Unsubscribing to thread.. ^^

      well i was talking about design and integration. just look at the iphone 4. look at the s3. hold them in your hand. you’ll know immediately which one is the more expensive product. which one looks cheap. and if you don’t believe me, read the reviews. you like posting links right? i don’t think there’s ANY phone critic out there that would call a galaxy s3 a beauty to behold more then they would an iphone. and yes, we pay for that. we pay for how it feels to use it. we pay for how well it integrates with our other products. at least we pay for the experience, not for tons of features we don’t even use/need. cmon what’s the use of having a quadcore phone if all you’re doing is trolling in forums hating on apple? buti pa phones nyo, smart.

    • yohanc says:

      One more thing, i have 4s and a Galaxy Nexus. So i am up to date with all android features (samsung’s touchwiz is trash if you root your s3 and remove it it’s going to be smooth even without project butter). Google Now is a pretty cool feature (bet you don’t use that, do you even use mobile data?). Customizable yes, but overall, by being an open software and allowing itself to be fragmented, android has lacked the complete integrated ecosystem that apple has built over the years.

    You can’t get away from the fact that in every distribution, there is an outlier like Papapau…. Bitch all you want but iPhone and Android users have their personal preferences… It’s just that iPhone is part of the ecosystem that papapau cannot swallow…lol pity…

    • Papapau says:

      Have you been reading what Apple is doing to society? Supporting that kind of company? Eliminating competition, hallucinating consumers, opportunistic overpricer, non-charity giver, most importantly, hindering innovation? Apple is forcing the patent war..

      Imagine the world without Apple, we might be using gadgets like those on minority report.. hehe..

      Well, you can’t get away from the fact that in every distribution, there is an ignorant like @Antigen….

      It’s just that ignorance is a bliss like what Antigen has been portraying… lol pity…

    -“the speakers are still at the bottom end along with the 3.5mm audio jack and the power connector.” –have you confirmed this? i think its (from left to right) -3.5mm audio jack, -mouthpiece(mic), -9pin power data power connector, -speaker. please don’t confuse the consumers thinking that their left speaker is defective when it is really not a speaker but a microphone.

    @paupau
    what’s the point of arguing whether to buy an iPhone or not? It’s your preference. Kung afford mo bumili ng iPhone, bumili ka. Kung gusto mo ng Android phones, same as well. Tutal hindi mo naman pera ang ipambibili diba? :)

    Fellow Apple Fanboys, don’t feed the troll named paupau. He’s just a self-proclaimed Mr. “KnowItAll” sa mga barkada nya, if ever may friends nga cya. KSP yan. Needs a mental health check-up.

    Apple pa rin ako wala ako pakialam sa sasabhin ng iba… madali gamitin ang iphone. Kung hindi kaya bumili manahimik na lang. Parang babae putak ng putak!

    I don’t have an Apple or Android device and yet I find this discussion hilarious. I can’t believe there are people who are this “passionate” about defending their choice of mobile OS, like it’s a matter of life and death. Keep it up guys!
