"Apple has also greatly improved the iPhone's wireless connectivity options, with the addition of LTE being the biggest talking point."

V.Positive

"The iPhone 5 is a winner that should keep Apple at the front of the smartphone pack. But choosing iPhone 5 vs. a top-of-the line Android alternative isn't a cut-and-dried decision, especially if you're partial to a jumbo display..."

V.Positive

"The larger screen – still Retina resolution, at 326ppi, of course – is a great size compromise between the trend toward larger phones of the mobile industry overall, and Apple’s own insistence on a resolutely pocketable device."

"It's quite hard to dislike an iPhone, no matter whether you love or disdain Apple's ethos. It's just so simple, with a quality screen and a real effort made into the design." 4.5/5 Stars

"The bottom line is this: the iPhone 5 runs on the new A6 processor. Compared to the A5 processor in the iPhone 4S apps now load quicker. For basic tasks you aren't going to notice the speed difference as you whizz around the OS, or loading up your favourite website as Safari isn't hardware accelerated as the browsers are on Windows Phone or Android. But start to play games or load demanding apps and you'll soon notice the extra speed is there, and there to enjoy." 4.5/5 Stars
