Hands on: iPhone 5 review

 

The Apple iPhone 5 thinner, lighter and faster than its predecessors

Bigger screen ; 4G capability ; Better front-facing camera

No iP5-specific iOS 6 features ; Battery life still not great ; Prefer the old Maps design

Apple iPhone 5

 

Faster, lighter, bigger, better: iPhone 5 is the best iPhone yet

Lighter, smarter design ; lightning fast interface and web browsing ; superb sound ; bigger pictures

Apple Maps is too much of a work in progress ; adapter issue is a pain ; interface now lacks wow factor ; expensive

There is no hype in the world of technology or smartphones that comes anywhere near that which surrounds the iPhone. It's the single device that draws more rumour, more speculation, more comment, more analysis than any other. What Apple has created...

iPhone 5 review

 

The iPhone 5 re-energized Apple's smartphone, but it's now long in the tooth

Great design ; Larger screen ; Quality camera

High price ; Poor maps ; Ageing OS

The best iPhone yet - but given the power of the competition and the high price, not the best smartphone.

iPhone 5 review

 

The iPhone 5 is more than just Apple's latest high-end smartphone. In a world of huge slabs of phone the iPhone's thin profile makes it different to the Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z, HTC One, BlackBerry Z10, Nokia Lumia 925 and the rest of the high-end...

The iPhone 5 really is much more than a tall iPhone 4S with a new plug. The people may demand a revolution every upgrade season. But Apple may just have supplied what the people need, not what they say they want. And that's a powerful evolution on the...
