The Verge have their full iPhone 5 review up. They gave it an 8.8/10 (not that that means a lot to me, as I don't find The Verge very..."good" for want of a better word).

Yes, but here's the Verge's Joshua Topolsky....

Thought iguy was after personal reviews rather than proper ones. Can't imagine many owners admitting they aren't too impressed though.
That picture doesn't want to load :(

I can't see the picture either. I agree, no-one who's spent £530 will admit to having wasted it, they'll be making themselves feel better if nothing more.

It's right in front of my eyes, muchachos.... He finds "it feels tiring" ...and "tired", and after a short time he craved his JB Nexus....

Are you talking in the 3rd person and you have an iPhone 5, or are you speaking about the missing image?

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 21, 2012 at 12:07

I'm talking about Joshua Topolsky of the Verge. The missing image showed his conclusion ;)

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 21, 2012 at 12:08

What would I be doing with an iPhone 5? More importantly, would I crave a JB Nexus, Schweinehund? :) :p

I've seen it, I read the entire G+ article/post/whatever they're called, which he wrote.

I did wonder, I thought maybe your mystery new phone was a total shock and was in fact both an iP5 and a GNex...

Talking of the mystery purchase, has it arrived yet?

Someone is getting one besides Lewis? Jan, are you hiding something???

Pondlife  Sep. 21, 2012 at 12:59

If he's got that for £100 I'd like one too.

I don't think any of the regulars here are getting one (bar Lewis who's having to wait a few weeks).

Tbh, it's just not a compelling upgrade if you currently have a 3GS/HTC Desire or better device.

Are you going to tell us what it is once it does arrive?

With Note II in few weeks and LG G talk of being Google phone, there is no compelling reason to rush for iPhone.

But the 3gs won't have voice navigation, oh yeah, hmm ;)

Huh? There is no Google SAT Nav on iPhone?

I think that's a little unfair. If you have an iPhone 2G or 3G and have spent lots of money on Apps and other iPhone-y stuff, then maybe it makes sense to stay with the iOS platform and get the iPhone 5.

That is the ONLY reason I can think of to buy one though.

Don't think so but definitely not if the 3gs is upgraded to ios6

Nope, GMaps turn-by-turn is Android only (WP has something similar from Nokia).

I'd rather stay at home than be told to drive off a bridge etc ;).
