I have had the iPhone 5 for one week now and I must say...I can't see myself EVER going back to the Android!
This is my first ever iPhone. I was reluctant to switch because I really didn't have any complaints about my android phone EXCEPT for the camera. For that reason alone I decided to give the iPhone a try.
For that reason alone it was WORTH it....BUT....I have been so impressed with the way this phone operates overall that I can't believe I waited this long! :-)

Battery Life
The battery is FAR superior to my android phone. I keep worrying I'm going to be low on battery so I keep checking. I'm always pleasantly surprised at the percentage of battery life remaining. :-)

Display/Screen Quality
One word. EXCELLENT!

Call Quality
I seem to be having some "breaking up" issues with this phone that I didn't have with my droid. But to be honest...I've haven't used it all that much for actual calls since I got it. I can't stop playing with all the other cool stuff. lol. Time will tell.

Ease of Use
It's taking some getting used to. Quite different from the droid operating system. At first I didn't think I liked the keyboard (I missed swypeing)...but now that I'm getting the hang of it, I prefer it.

Durability
Seems SOLID. Although I felt better about using it once I got my case for it.

Design
Gorgeous. Sleek. Modern.

Sometimes new isn't better and that's what I found with this phone. It was a free upgrade from Verizon when my contract was up and I turned in my 4S. This phone just doesn't compare and I miss my old phone. It's large, clunky, too "touchy" and the screen is very glary compared to the 4S. I've heard numerous people complain about the phone and given my experience, I wouldn't recommend. Keep your 4S or wait for the 6.

Battery Life
Unlike my 4S which easily ran all day, the battery life on mine is just about 12 hours. Then it tells me it's time to plug in and turn in for the night. It does charge up pretty quickly, but that doesn't help when I'm not in my car or home.

Display/Screen Quality
The screen is bigger but has more glare. It also sometimes has an odd halo effect which although might be my phone, Verizon can't explain or fix. The Camera is OK, nothing new or exciting to discuss.

Call Quality
I have Verizon and the call quality is the same as the 4S, but the phone is bigger and thinner so I need to hold it differently.

Ease of Use
The bigger phone is more difficult to hold. It is clunky with the case on, too slippery with it off. It doesn't fit in my pocket. It is difficult to hold when making calls, but is easier to write notes on.

Durability
The entire phone is simply not as durable as my 4S. It feels cheaply made and has a halo on the screen. Doubt it will last the entire 2 years.

Design
Didn't we get rid of large phones during the 80's? (Remember Seinfeld) Again it's too large to hold comfortably, too large for a pocket and too thin to be durable.

        Comments about Apple iPhone (16GB):

        Apple is always been inovative from years to years. They never stop making the newest design almost every single year. At first i was like,"How could people enjoy and have a pride of using one of the most branded luxury smartphone if its always getting the newest design every year?". And thats where i was wrong. I never know why people keep insisting to spend such a money to buy this phone, right until i was buying it for my self.

        Good design, Handy and comfort in pocket. Good quality of operation system, no virus, best to use for gaming, recording, taking a photo, and etc. Eventho it memory is only 16 GB, it can contain so many photos and app in one phone. Simple interface, with many things that help you through the day, at work and at home.

        i cant wait to buy more of the newest iphone.

          The client interface is worked around the gadget's multi-touch screen, including a virtual console. The iPhone has Wi-Fi and can interface with cell systems. An iPhone can shoot video (however this was not a standard component until the iPhone 3GS), take photographs, play music, send and get email, skim the web, send and get instant messages, take after GPS route, record notes, perform numerical estimations, and get visual voicemail.[17] Other capacities—computer games, reference works, person to person communication, and so forth.— can be empowered by downloading application programs ('applications'); as of October 2013, the App Store offered more than one million applications by Apple and third parties[18] and is positioned as the world's biggest versatile programming conveyance system of its kind (by number of right now accessible applications)
