Global gadget magazine Stuff recently published their review of the iPhone 5, calling it the “best smartphone on the market”.
“While the iPhone 4S was beaten, it wasn’t beaten by much, and the refinements and upgrades it’s undergone to produce the iPhone 5 are enough to see Apple overthrow the Android upstarts,” Stuff said in its review.
“It’s not flashy and it’s not radical, but it is a significant improvement over what was an already excellent device, and it still has the best selection of apps available on any handset. All of that adds up to the best smartphone on the market – at least for now.”
The iPhone 5 was met with mixed reactions, with some observers arguing that the device failed to impress them.
“There is not a wow factor because everything you saw today is evolutionary. I do think they did enough to satisfy,” said Michael Yoshikami, chief executive of wealth management company Destination Wealth Management.
However, despite the criticism, Apple’s new iPhone has become the “fastest selling phone” after breaking a pre-order record.
The demand for the iPhone 5 was so strong that it has exceeded initial supply, forcing Apple to push back the delivery date for some pre-orders.
