“It’s by far the best smartphone I’ve ever used”.
The following is an extract from Shaun McGill’s latest post on the iPhone 5 for his Lost In Mobile Blog, in which he describes how he has become bored using the iPhone 5, despite how seamless it is at completing tasks. Shaun’s reviewed many a handset over the years, so you can be sure of a fair review whether its Android, iOS, Windows Phone or BlackBerry that he’s scrutinising:
Anyway, yes I am bored for a number of reasons. The phone doesn’t do anything more than the iPhone 4S and so I am not seeing a huge benefit. The new App Store design is so poor that I can’t work out what is new and what isn’t, and the number of taps required to find anything is a huge retrograde step. The speed is unnoticeable because it never, ever slows down and everything works perfectly.
