LOUcifer's review of the Apple iPhone 5 (CDMA / global)

original version, submitted Apr 15, 2013, 3:29 PM:

Finally all grown up..LOL

I jumped on the Android bandwagon somewhat early with the original Droid from Verizon as I didn't want to be like everyone else with their iDevice. The original Droid flashed me some warning signs that I chose to ignore time and time again. Countless issues...as I quickly realized the software upgrades far surpassed the hardware's ability to keep up....

To make a very long story short I went from Droid to the Droid Charge to the Droid Bionic to the Galaxy SIII before I realized it didn't matter what Android device I had they were ALL garbage.

A child's toy as I believe one reviewer wrote of the Android persuasion..

Well I have to finally say I finally grew the f*ck up and realized what in fact I was missing out on.

With my adoption of the iPhone 5 I finally have a STABLE phone platform not a phone with version 2.0, 2.3, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 or any of that other garbage with empty promises from manufacturers that the latest version of android is on it's way and arriving a month after my upgrade date.

Pro's - STABLE iOS - newest version pushed from APPLE not the carrier
-Stunning camera with panoramic
-LTE
-Extremely lightweight
-fast processor
-gorgeous design
-battery is WAY better than ANY android
-Service is NEVER an issue with Verizon
-no memory hog widgets to run in the background and clutter the desktop
-Have my Gmail & Enterprise mail, contacts and calendar

I could go on and on

Con's - No talk and surf with Verizon

For all those tired of all the different versions of Android that can do one thing but not another and have to wait over a year for the next software update...tired of having to restart your android once a day/week whatever...you may want to ditch the toy and buy a real communication device...the Rolls Royce(TM) of Smartphones...Buy an iPhone 5!!
