The iPhone 5 surpasses its predecessors in virtually every aspect, and it is without a doubt the best offering from Apple so far. Despite the oversight with regards to the maps, it isn't quite the off-putting flaw that makes the iPhone 5 any less of a beast (especially since it can be rectified). While it isn’t exactly ahead of its Android competitors in raw performance, the fact of the matter is that Apple has packaged it in such a way that it works with aplomb. We do wish that Apple has taken bold measures to go even further, but in hindsight, we’re struggling to come up with what else they could have "re-invented", so to speak. Ultimately, while the iPhone 5 isn't going to win anyone over from the Android camp over, it is the best thing yet for those holding the Apple banner.
