Is this true ? i ask because i saw someone recently with what i thought was an iPhone 5, the front camera was above the earpiece but it threw me because it had a silver rim rather than black.

But yet ive not seen anywhere that actually shows such 5's in existence.

@ dizzybee - I have the black one, and the first day scuffed the metal around the screen and i haven't even dropped it yet. So i have immediately put a cover on it. But i have seen some black iPhone 5's that now have a silver band around it, quite unsightly. Go for the white.




Thats sucks have you not spoken to apple about it?
are they replacing phones with these probs? hmm

They are indeed replacing phones with this issue and stocking/recommending a case. Aluminum is lighter but dents/bends easilly if its "casted". Forged Aluminum (engines & car bodies) do not.

Seems as if Apple is not using the tech of that company they bought (liquid-metal). Great device but its not meant for longevity for those that are not super careful with their smartphone. I may give Nexus4 a try next month but but I'm doing a LOT of research first this time around.

I doubt anybody, never mind Apple, will change the phone or repair it for a single dead pixel.

Even if for me a dead pixel is a deal breaker. The single most important part these days of a smartphone is its screen. If thats ruined the entire phone is ruined for me no matter how minor.

And therein etaab lies the rub. The perfect argument for a warranty exchange due to 1 bad pixel could mean many more down the road. You use the screen for picture colour accuracy, document proofing, communications etc. I'd say try it ... can't hurt to try when you're not working or having fun, and if shopping same day already then include some time scheduled to go in and see how their legendary support fairs in your case.

Id say try to get it replaced also, as one dead pixel can lead to more and more annoyance to the user.

But i dont think Apple will not without a large fee.

Its not to much of an annoyance if i was only paying under £25 a month for the phone then i would of left it
but im paying almost nearly £50 for it yes a iPhone 4S believe it or not

anyway I do plan on visiting apple next month before my deadline with luck after I mention im paying for the
applecare they will possibly replace it if not I sure hope it mucks up later on so they will then do

btw I downloaded that update ^^ too for a while I noticed facebook would not let me login,
maybe its a good thing as im almost outta data for this month anyway

Mr. President got my vote.. I am not exactly sure why, but.. he did I think someone sent me this: https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.ne[....]1851383527481_1554285870_n.jpg

and I just couldn't resist

EE would probably offer similar speeds in the UK, but... honestly I don't see the point, at least not for now. I can't really take advantage of it. The only practical application I could see is if you replace your home cable/adsl connection with LTE from you phone running as a hot spot. Maybe one day they will have services that use it, like voice over LTE and others, but for now... no point.

If you have the iphone 4s.. don't bother upgrading to 5, I wouldn't.

haha at that Picture
tbh I would of voted for Obama to if I lived there... cos seriously after 4 years of power American(s)
want rid of him?!.. Jeez change doesn't happen over midnight

As for 4GEE I don't really want to go for it till its widespread plus I would rather wait to see what the other networks
are like price wise when they get it next year, I find EE are pretty exspensive for data on that new service anyway don't know if you seen there new plans lol

Im happy with my 4S for now its also a tough cookie against the iPhone 5 which marks far to easily
although once dropped then

laters

I take it the app isnt optimised for the iPhone 5's larger screen as with the black bars top and bottom ?
