Recently got a 64GB black slate iPhone 5.

I'm an Android fanboy, but finding this device to be ...well... perfect.

I cannot fault it whatsoever. Even the so called limiting iOS is doing everything asked of it then some. The battery life is poor when on low signal, but then when I think about my S3s battery in the same conditions, it's miles ahead on that front. Being able to use apps on WIFI for 1hr 30 mins and only losing about 10% battery is simply unheard of on all of my Android devices.

I went from the S3 to an iphone 5 and I love it. I am also an Android fanboy.
-vertical scrolling is FLAWLESS, extremely smooth-everywhere and I can't say that about any other phone in the market, not even the Lumia 920.
-I get 2 days on one charge consistently (LTE on, push mail off)
-I love the size, I can grip the phone well unlike my s3 which I have to rest on top of my palm and hold it almost horizontally to balance it when I type with one hand
-Zero lag, no microstutter, no dropped frames
-The loudspeaker has bass (lol?), kind of unusual for a phone, and I've used quite a few phones

Cons:
-I miss the "P" and backspace all the time, sort of feels like the touchscreen is less responsive near the edges
-no swype is balls, every touchscreen phone should have gesture typing

It is good to see someone appreciating the things the iPhone does well.

I switched from Android (HTC EVO 4G ) in early 2011 to an iPhone 4 and then a few months ago went to a Galaxy Nexus LTE. Even with all the "customization" and CyanogenMod, I missed the battery life of my iPhone. I returned the Galaxy Nexus and bought an iPhone 4S.

I bought aniphone 3gs black 16gb, then an iphone 4 black 32gb.. which my wife is currently using, and an now a iphone 5 black 32gb.
hmm.. can you tell I do not currently own a apple computer smile.gif ..? Actually in the 90s, I found my mac laptop superior for network discovery.
Of course now the pc caught up late 90s.

If I had the money, I would by an apple computer now that it is running an intel processor. but I have been building my own computers for personal and business
since 1985... first with mods, then complete units... When retail computer stores popped up... I went networking and server.
Ok... this is the iphone area so I will shut up about computers.... but the iphone is a computer.... smile.gif

My iPhone 5....
It's a great phone but I don't like Apple putting limits on wifi software utils... which makes me want to unlock it (which apple now allows)
so I can put the useful scanning utils on it without restrictions as it is a basic handy troubleshooting device if unlocked.

Many of my friends were amazed I never went android (android you can do anything with.. but an unlocked iphone I can as well
and I believe the iphone is superior device.

Why not hackintosh? Buy parts that are compatible with OSX and use them.

Here are suggestions.

I have Black iPhone 4 16gb on Straight Talk/AT&T
