My iPhone 5 has finally arrived

On Monday I joined the 21st century.  I said goodbye to my Blackberry –yes, people still have those — and upgraded to an iPhone 5.  The nearly weeks  waited after pre-ordering the phone seemed like forever but I’m glad to say it was worth the wait.

While I’m glad to have just about any phone but a Blackberry, I must say I was expecting more of a wow factor with my new phone. But there was no Aha moment. It turns out to be just another phone. It’s a good phone but if I previously had an iPhone and had a choice to upgrade to the new one I wouldn’t. There are a few new or improved features but nothing to run out and spend $199 on.

I meet someone on Saturday who told me she had all the iPhones and wasn’t impressed by the i-5 while I know someone else who upgrade from the iPhone 4 and says he loves it. I guess it depends on what you are looking for in a phone.

While I love my new phone — despite Siri’s sarcasm — I totally agree with the Samsung Galaxy commercials about the next best thing already being here. If you’re looking for more high-tech details about the iPhone 5, you won’t find that here. But speaking of, did you see the spoof on Saturday Night Live about the negative reviews? Hilarious!

  3. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying
    to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!
