Review: Apple iPhone 5 for AT&T
Replying to: Review was overboard on the ubiquitous design by Rusty Shackleford
Re: Review was overboard on the ubiquitous design
The OS is a subjective call, but there's certainly nothing unique and special about it that would pull in customers who don't already like iOS, no 'need to have' features that aren't found elsewhere. The screen quality is good, but not the best anymore. Several phones have better color and saturation, and at least one soon-to-be-released phone has a higher resolution. The hardware is an improvement over previous iPhones and is certainly powerful, but nothing special compared to other current devices.
Reviewers can't just say, "its a great phone and a good upgrade if you like the iOS ecosystem". They HAVE to praise it for something. Its become somewhat taboo to not admit prior to any other complaint about the device that the design is flawless, and EVERYONE agrees. (ie, "everyone knows its a beautiful phone, but....")
