Apple has just announced the new iPhone 5 last week and since then, it has made a huge impact on reviewers.
Here are some of the top reviews on this must-have smartphone:

- Wall Street Journal, Walt Mossberg- States that the new iPhone is handier than other smartphones. He loved the new improvement. It is more convenient to use now and good to look at when making a call.
In addition, though the new iphone has not fully improved its looks, still it has bigger screen compared to iPhone 4 which was released last year. Moreover, the new iphone is lighter, about 20%. You might even mistake it for a copy due to its weight.
On views on LTE, it looks like the new iphone is incredibly faster. He used it on Verizon LTE network in Washington DC and discovered that it downloads faster- 26 megabits per second. It makes 13 megabits per second when making uploads. It works faster than the iPhone 4S which Verizon is slower on 3G network. In fact, there were no drop calls made with the new iphone and voice calls are clearer!

- Techcrunch, MG Siegler- He points out that the “disappointments” on iPhone 5 are ridiculous because when you go check Apple Store you will find how the new iphone is almost perfected.
Yes, the new iPhone 5 is quite expensive and making an upgrade from your current smartphone to new iphone is not a requirement especially if it is beyond your budget. There is a considerable hype on iPhone 5 these days. Nonetheless, if you own an iPhone 4S I say it would still work well. Besides, if you are not an iPhone 4S user you can expect that iPhone 5 price will drop in the coming months or so. It is still a perfect smartphone with its 8 megapixels camera and dual core A5; even it has stiff competition with Samsung’s Galaxy S3.
The bottom line is, if you have a smartphone and it has the conveniences you need then there is no need for an upgrade. However, if you plan to get a smartphone anytime soon then consider getting iPhone 5. It is a highly-sensible choice and the best of Apple to date.
