Mark Prigg for Mail Online: "Bright, responsive and it just feels right - simply the best smartphone ever made" 5/5
"The key to the iPhone 5 is simple — attention to detail... Pick it up, and it just doesn’t feel like a smartphone - but instead, uncannily like one of the very best made watches... Even the weight distribution has been thought through, and the phone feels ‘right’ when held in the hand.
"The dock connector has attracted a huge amount of criticism, and while yes, it does create problems for a lot of older accessories, it really is a lot easier to use — smaller, and two sided so you can’t put it in the wrong way round.
"The extra screen [size] does make a big difference — suddenly apps seem more immersive, and everything seems to make more impact, with gaming in particular set to be a big winner.
"With the iPhone 5, Apple has really raised the bar, not just for the smartphone market, but consumer electronics in general."
