    I love mine.  The screen is superb, LTE is blazingly fast (first network data speeds that actually live up to the hype).  Apple's maps has "issues" but I have alternative apps (MotionX, Mapquest, Where, Waze, and google maps through safari) so can still make do just fine.  My call quality is also very good, and noticeable better then my iPhone 4 (I do use Google Voice and its app for most of my calling, so the LTE data is likely a factor there too).  All in all, very happy with the upgrade from 4 to 5 (I never bothered with the 4s).


    I carry mine in a Sena Corsa leather sleeve, but otherwise it is naked, and seems to be standing up to daily use just fine (my iPhone is my only phone).  However, I also look at my old iPhone 4 and 3Gs and honestly can claim they look very near new as well, so I've never had reason to complain about the iPhone's durability.


    I have also not experienced any wifi issues, my two bluetooth headsets work flawlessly with my iPhone 5, and my battery life is thus far at least as good as my iPhone 4 was when new (maybe a bit better, but not by much).  It also connected to my AT&T 3G Microcell without my having to do a thing with it, and has worked with that in my home fine all along.


    P.S. the camera is also much better then that in my 4 - not talking about the resolution, but much better exposure control, color balance and low light picture quality.

    I love the slightly larger screen. I do not live in an LTE area, but it is still faster than my iPhone 4. I have had no problems with the Maps app. In fact I find it better than either the Google Map or my Magellan Roadmate app. I have not found anything out of place, and it finds addresses that the other two do not. As an example...

    A store I shop at in Orlando recently moved. In their email they sent out two versions of their address. The one the post office currently uses (street name), along with an older address (us highway #). They included a note that if you were using Google to find them use the older address. My Magellan app took the new one, but not the old one. The Apple Maps app found it using both. It also told me which side of the street it was on. Magellan did not.

    I also love mine - absolutely no complaints - two days of battery - multitasking fool - never skips a beat.
