Personally i love my new iP5! And i upgraded from a 4S which was also a great phone. And on a side note i think the new maps is awesome. I used it yesterday and its 100% times better than that crappy old google maps that used to come standard on iOS. It was accurate and the interface was easy to use. I love the fact that it shows on the lock screen and i love the fact that once you exit the app it lets you tap the status bar to return to it, similar to when you hit the home button in a phone call. I dont know what all the complaints are about.
    Completely agree with you dude. Funny that i see so many droids hanging out on apple forums.

    Has a great interface but there are is a lot of improvements needed. I wouldn't go as far as saying google maps was crap because it served us very well for a long time. Turn by turn much needed definitely but that's why I bought tomtom app.

    Don't know if its a glitch in the speed test app. But I will get between 12-20mb then run the test again and I will get under 1mb down. It switches like that each time high to low every test. Weird

    Vzw network.

    Totally Slow!

    10 Mbps cable

    2 X Apple AirPort Extreme routers w/ WPA2

    Mac speed test = 9.81 Mbps
    iPhone 4 = 9.34 Mbps
    iPhone 5 = .32 Kbps

    So there you go...

    WEP is slow. Buffering HD movies to my ATV is choppy using WEP from my media server over wifi

    WPA2 is fast and smooth. This really sucks!

    Maybe because some us either own both for our own use or another family member has one?

    My iPhone 5 is working perfectly. Wifi is working great and so is the battery life. None of my friends have problems either.

    People are crazy. God forbid there's a microscopic scratch on the metal, or an extra quarter second to connect to wifi.

    i thought i was the only one and i have called my ISP several times to complain that i am not getting the download/upload speeds i am paying for (verizon fios with 35mbs down/35mbs up). now i see that it is not a problem with verizon.

    i am also having the problem with my ipad 3 on iOS 6, deductive reasoning tells me it is more than likely software related *shrug*

    I noticed slow speeds while at my in laws house, they have WEP as well and seemed sluggish but didn't do any speed tests will try next time I'm there. I'm trying to use all the LTE i can so I can be throttled, would like to find out what my throttled speed will be like.
    Well I've been thinking of selling my phones (i5,i4S) and Switching to Verizon from AT&T. Verizon has LTE coverage everywhere here in New York, AT&T does not. I've been holding onto AT&T because I like the fact that I can surf the web and talk at the same time, but I am willing to leave that for LTE speeds.

    Actually, I dont think its too much of a Wi-Fi issue. I think its the SpeedTest app that is faulty. I have been using it a few times over the last few weeks on my iPhone4S (5.1.1) in home Wi-Fi and the results are off. App reads 3.4 MBps , the website read over 20 MBps which was confirmed with a 2.2MB per second download speed. Restarting the router 3x yielded the same result.

    Please note, that I have nothing bad to say about Samsung or their products, but apple in my humble opinion makes an unresistable product where it's quality is unmatched.

    The iPhone 5 is the only phone I'll want or need until the next generation is released. No wifi or cellular connectivity issues for me.
    Totally agree with you iphone to me is the best phone to have and you know what they say "if you dont have anything good to say keep quiet"

    yeah especially considering the battery is about half the capacity of the android phone batteries I say it does i pretty good job with battery life.

    Gotta love people like you that write on things they don't know about. Guess what. When the 4s came out the only thing not changed was the screen an appearance. So it was still a full hardware change.

    It's a brand new product. And most Likely a software issue. We all know android has no software issues. Lmao.
    Same here. I wasn't expecting any amazing completely new phone but it was a nice upgrade. For me no wifi issues fortunately 56mbps down 12mpbs up and LTE is almost as fast as well. The wifi and LTE were 2 of the features I was looking forward to with the new iphone.
