Just picked up an iPhone 5 32gb to replace my aging iPhone 4 (not s) 32gb and I'm very happy with the purchase. The larger screen makes a big difference and the weight of the unit is very low by comparison. I have no idea how they got it so light weight? That being said they did change the connector so now I need an adapter to make it work with all my aging accessories and docks but not a huge deal in my opinion since it allowed them to reduce the weight and put a better connector on it overall and bigger speakers since the connector is so small.

The good:
The iPhone 5 adds everything we wanted in the iPhone 4S: 4G LTE, a longer, larger screen, free turn-by-turn navigation, and a faster A6 processor. Plus, its top-to-bottom redesign is sharp, slim, and feather-light.

The bad:
Apple Maps feels unfinished and buggy; Sprint and Verizon models can't use voice and data simultaneously. The smaller connector renders current accessories unusable without an adapter. There's no NFC, and the screen size pales in comparison to jumbo Android models.

The bottom line:
The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It's absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe. This show is an independent production of Jerry Berg (aka Barnacules).
