The iPhone 5: the more glass screen there is, the more there is to break

The American independent reviewers’ group Consumer Reports has given Apple’s iPhone 5 its blessing – a stark contrast to its assessment of the iPhone 4 in 2010, which it notably could not recommend due to signal degradation issues. The consumer watchdog considered the maps app “competent enough, even if it falls short of what’s available for free on many other phones”, and complimented the phone’s profile, speed and display, stating that it is the best iPhone to date.

Personally, it’s just not for me.
