What's so good about the iPhone 5?

So I just got the iPhone 5... I don't see the big difference other than a tiny bit bigger... I am thinking of returning it..

Puts iphone 5 expectations/faults into perspective. As my coworkers would say, first world problems.

I see you did your research before buying then.

With my Chevy, they needed to push a Bluetooth update for my iPhone 5 to fully be compatible with my car.

I am not looking for people give me reasons to keep my phone..

I just want to know what's so great about it?

The only difference is that it has a tiny bit bigger screen.

If that is the only difference you see...return it and buy an S3.

It's fast, the colors are the most vibrant I've seen on a phone, it's thinner and lighter than the last one, it's LTE, and the camera is remarkable for the current generation of phones.

I didn't like it for about a day and a half then I was handed an iPhone 4S and immediately saw the difference and changed my mind on the 5.

It's pretty swell.

Well, for a person like me who's gonna eventually upgrade from an iPhone 4, there are many reasons...

Bigger screen
LTE
Much faster processor
More memory
Better camera
New feature of iOS6 not available on iPhone4

Only thing I don't like is the new dock connector, but the pain will ease over time as cheaper alternatives turn out.

But I can see the issue with upgrading from a 4S, the differences are not as dramatic as the phone runs iOS6 very well and already has 8mp camera and a dual core cpu, albeit not as fast as the 5, but much faster than the 4.

Some of you guys are so pleasant. Quickly checking OPs post history doesn't show a pattern of Apple trolling, however all of the people in this thread (except for 1 or 2) automatically assume that this is an assault on their beloved brand and switch to "a**hole" mode.

HiVolt listed some of the things:

Bigger screen
LTE
Much faster processor
More memory
Better camera
New feature of iOS6 not available on iPhone4

However to an average user faster processor and more memory translate into nothing. If their current phone is fast enough for them these stats don't matter. The screen is not bigger enough to justify a switch and if you are not in an LTE market, LTE also means nothing.

Did any of you ever consider that this may not be a trolling post, but an actual question from someone who really wants to know if they are missing something before returning the phone?

Now if I misjudged the OP's reasons and it was a troll post, then by all means, attack

Please...go return it. Buy two cans of soup and a lot of string. You'll enjoy it more. Please.

What's so great about it? YMMV, plain and simple. Then there's always this.

I'm not the only one, but my Bimmer works fine although it doesn't do the BT streaming, hands free works like it did before... just not my FX37.

If you cross reference DV's posts with SN9's, you'll see a distinct pattern of cluelessness on SN9's part. At the very least amusingly goofy questions. Sorry, SN9...but it's true.

That's so strange. I will admit that I was worried it wouldnt work with by Nissan Rogue's BT system, but it does work.

I wonder what is different in the iPhone 5 to the 3GS or 4(s).

I guess it all depends on firmware updates.. apparently my Nav and infotainment system was shipped from the manufacturer months before iphone5 was released.

maybe I have 2010 firmware in my 2013 FX, I know our 2010 G37 required a firmware update to be able to stably operate without rebooting ever so often... guess I'll have to wait to get my car updated...

Alright after thinking about it.. I am going to go back to my old iPhone 4s...

To me the upgrade isn't worth $300.00 plus tax.
