The early reviews of the apple iPhone 5 came few days back and they were claiming—none other iphone has got higher praise from Apple's AAPL +0.04% expert reviewers than this iphone. Tag like “flat-out lovely” "more slim and more light"and “absolute home run” are accurate to work as testimonials in an Apple iphone commercial.
The matter of the fact is the true come out from this expert reviewers is an accessory and the software features: the adapter cost $29 that you have to purchase if you want the connection between the iPhone5 and the accessories like their current speaker docks; and software like Apple’s new map apps that comes in place of Google GOOG +1.30% Map, but still this is't that great –it’s just not as good as Google’s app, many reviewer said.
Here’s a some lines of what the expert say:
Does an ounce makes too much difference : The experts are all looked to be surprised at how less weight the iPhone 5 is in comparison of previous versions . CNET’s expert Scott Stein "he was “shocked” and “weirded out” by how “feather light” the 3.95-ounce phone is", TechCrunch’s expert MG Siegler " it just “doesn’t seem real.”
The screen is bigger , which is 4 inches in place of the early 3.5 inches, which make space for one more row of icons. The reviewers are sure that the big screen of iphone 5 is good for checking the files and for watching movie and Web browsing, though they are't sure about its usability. WSJ’s Walt Mossberg " the larger screen makes the iPhone “easier to hold and manipulate than its larger rivals” and is comfortable to use one-handed", the cnet expert Stein said “a little more of a two-hander.”
The 8-megapixel sensor camera make it shoot in very low light."Engadget reviewer Tim Stevens “Tap that big ol’ thum as quick as you can and the iPhone 5 will keep up, whereas the iPhone 4S eventually fell behind.” The rear-facing camera impressed the reviewers , which is an update to 1.2 megapixel New York Times’ expert David Pogue writes. “Its lowlight shots blow away the same efforts from an iPhone 4S.”. CNET’s reviewer Stein call it "the low-light shots are “more coherent” but granier “than the wonderfully detailed images taken in bright, direct light.”

Apple claims the new battery have 8 hours of backup on 3G network or talking and browsing on LTE networks, and for Wi-Fi 10 hours. Engadget’s Stevens said “in a day of heavy usage with LTE, GPS and WiFi all enabled.”Jaroslovsky said "the battery lasted between 9 and 12 hours with mixed use." But everybody believe that iphone5 have batter battery life than other version .
As apple claimed the iPhone 5 connect fast 4-generation LTE networks. When checked, WSJ expert Mossberg called it “data downloads and uploads just fly.” Bloomberg reviewer Rich Jaroslovsky said “roaringly fast,” while TechCrunch expert Siegler says “LTE is so fast that it’s faster than my home WiFi.” But there’s a big lack, of many nation’s users isn’t covered by LTE networks — AT&T's T +0.27% LTE network, currently it spread over 60 million people.
Lightning Adapter $29
It is the biggest drawback of the iphone. The iPhone 5 redesigned slot for cords that establish the connection between iphone and the device and Pcs. For connecting speakers you’ have to spend $29 on adapter.Times’ Pogue writes "If you have a few accessories, you could easily pay $150 in adapters for a $200 phone,” “That’s not just a slap in the face to loyal customers — it’s a jab in the eye.” CNET expert Stein called "Apple could have sweetened the deal by at least offering faster sync speeds, or a free 30-pin adapter.”
Walt Mossberg, WSJ: “Apple has taken an already great product and made it better, overall. Consumers who prefer huge screens or certain marginal features have plenty of other choices, but the iPhone 5 is an excellent choice.”
Scott Stein, CNET: “The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It’s absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe.”
Tim Stevens: Engadget: “Will it wow you? Hold it in your hand — you might be surprised. For the iOS faithful this is a no-brainer upgrade. This is without a doubt the best iPhone yet. This is a hallmark of design. This is the one you’ve been waiting for.”
David Pogue, New York Times: “If you have an iPhone 4S, getting an iPhone 5 would mean breaking your two-year carrier contract and paying a painful penalty; maybe not worth it for the 5’s collection of nips and tucks. But if you’ve had the discipline to sit out a couple of iPhone generations — wow, are you in for a treat.”
Rich Jaroslovsky, Bloomberg: “The iPhone 5 is by no means perfect, and we’re lucky there are a lot of really good smartphones on the market. But only one great one.”
MG Siegler, TechCrunch: “The iPhone 5 is the culmination of Apple doing what Apple does best. This is the smartphone nearly perfected.”
Jim Dalrymple, The Loop: “The iPhone is everything Apple said it would be and with iOS 6 built-in, it’s clear to me that Apple has another winner on its hands. I can’t think of any good reason why anyone wouldn’t upgrade or purchase the iPhone 5.”
Shane Richmond, Telegraph: “The iPhone 5 is a great smartphone made even better. It’s fast, lightweight and backed by the largest application store for any device. It’s also probably the most beautiful smartphone anyone has ever made.”
Edward C. Baig, USA Today: “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, such as the one on the big, bold and beautiful Samsung Galaxy S III, an Android rival for which I’ve had high praise.”
