Overall: I have been using this phone for the past 3 months. Following r da pros n cons..nPROS:n1) LOOKS: It looks classy..premium construction…premium looks…only htc one is any close to this..but den it’s a lil bulky in front of the iphone 5.n2) SCREEN: Excellent 4 inch screen…great contrast n brightness..ok its ppi of 326 is less dan htc one/s4/htc butterly…bt if ur eyes cant differentiate between pixels in 326 ppi den wots da use of 441 ppi(Samsung galaxy s4) or 468 ppi(htc one)…..extra pixels wud only cause battery drain…excellent viewing under sun also…beats s4 and htc one hands down…n3) CAMERA: Its 8mp…bt its excellent in any kind of situations..under bright light it produces photo wid great detail without any oversaturation of colours…navigation to camera app from lock screen is very fast….in low light condition also it produces some amazing snaps…s4 is a real bummer in dis aspect…it matches lumia 920 n htc one on dis aspect…iphone 4s also has a great camera…iphone 5 is only an improved version of 4s with better low light photography…I have downloaded an app called as “Kitcam” dat helps u increase da shutter speed/exposure time till 1 second…dis makes u click sm amazing photos in night w/o flash…in general da shutter speed is also amazing..u click n u hv da pic..Even da back camera(1.3 mp) is great for self portraits n video chatting..n4) VIDEO: Excellent image stabilization produces better video footages as compared wid s4 and htc one…only lumia 920 produces a lil better video under shaky circumstancesn5) BATTERY: With 3G on all da tme…..4 mail accounts synced…calls..safari web browsing…whatsapp…camera…switching between apps like facebook, flipboard,ndtv, tumblr etc..it gives me a solid 12-15 hrs…its better dan any android phone..n6) MUSIC: An ipod is always in an iphone…music quality is decent wid da apple earpods supplied..its bass heavy n a lot better dan its previous iteration…but if u upgrade ur cans den u can listen to sm serious audio…I have bose ie2 earphone and Beats Studio headphones n da music quality is full of detail even in da top volume settings..As far as da speaker goes.. its also loud enough wid great detail wen not increased to the max volume(for some songs)…otherwise its great..n7) APPS: Don’t have much to say here…its known to da world dat da appstore has more n better apps dan any other platform…n8) IOS: The software running under da hood i.e IOS 6.1.4(latest) is excellent without any lags…u multi task..open any number of apps..it wont lag..i have 105 apps installed wid 30-40 apps open always on an average…n9) ACCESSORIES: One of da biggest advantages of having an iphone is da friendliness with accessories..u have 100s of great accessories available(not everything available in India..but u have eBay) available dat can even enhance n exploit da already gud features of iphone..recently I bought Ollocip dat is a camera enhancer..its has 3 lenses dat can be very easily connected to iphone 5 n help u take excellent pics…. n10) SOFTWARE UPGRADATION: One thing in which android sucks is the software upgradation…an apple device gets to njoy 4 upgraded versions wid timely updates..iphone 4 was launched in 2010 with ios4…its been upgraded to ios6..n ios 7 wud be its last upgrade…whereas android devices don’t get more dan 2 upgrades and time is also a big factor…Sony xperis S(last year’s sonys’ flagship) hasn’t received jelly Bean till now…Nexus devices r an exception though..nnCONS:n1) SCREEN SIZE: If big screen size is ur cup of tea den u will hv to look at other platforms viz Andriod, Microsoft ..For me its da adequate size dat can be operated wid single hand..n2) CUSTOMIZATION: If u want to customize ur phone n give it a new look everyday den android would serve ur purpose better….apple has everything basic..u can jailbreak though but den also da customization wont be of da same degree as android would provide u….nnAPPLE vs ANDRIOD fight: Apple’s software and hardware are made for each other(i.e their software IOS and hardware viz A4/A5/A6 processors is made in housen) which makes them perform better dan da android counterparts…android has quad/octa cores but 99% of apps don’t require dat kind of processing power…iphone 3GS has 256 mb of RAM and 600 Mhz single core processor…but den also it is able to play games such as NFS hot pursuit dat even a 1 Ghz android phone would hv problem playing it….so apple must never be compared on pure specs because its an optimized device unlike any android device(except nexus devices)…….nnI am not an iphone fanboy but ya I do prefer quality over quantity..I have used nokia lumia 800, iphone 4 and Google nexus S smartphones before...
