About This Brand

The iPhones complement their sleek designs and intuitively simple operation with top-notch displays, cameras, and music players. They also provide superb ease of use via a highly interactive multi-touch screen and a customizable icon-driven interface. Newer iPhone models have a fascinating, built-in voice-activated "assistant" called Siri that's fairly good at following complex orders. The newest iPhones, the 5s and 5c, have 4-inch displays and support for fast 4G LTE data networks. The flagship 5s is the first phone we've seen with a 64-bit processor and a fingerprint reader, which is built into the Home button. The 5c models have colorful outer shells.

I had it for 8 months when I reached into my purse and burned my hand on it. It was so hot that it left a burn mark on the inside of my bag. Took it to Apple Store. They opened it up; examined it; found it in pristine condition. Offered me a REFURBISHED USED one in exchange for my immaculately maintained but dangerous one. I called Apple Care. As soon as I mentioned dangerously hot I was transferred to a supervisor. He told me to power it off and not to use it. This suggests that I am not the only person to experience this problem.<br />Again the lousy offer of a replacement USED REFURBISHED phone with only the remaining 4 months of my original phone's warrantee.<br />This is a company that rides on nothing more than its reputation. The phone cannot do anything that Samsung's can't. In addition its dangerous. I am a senior citizen and do not write these reviews for fun. And offering me a used exchange instead of a new one under these circumstances is the icing on the cake.<br />Just awful. Stay away.

My wife and I purchased our iPhone 5 about one month after release. She has had absolutely no problems with hers. <br /><br />I'm currently on my 4th iPhone 5. All for the same reason. I keep losing my sound. They even sent me to an Apple specialist. After working with me three times, Richard B. stopped returning my calls. I guess the problem was over his head. I thought the problem might have been my MacBook Air, so I backed up on my Dell PC. Same problem.<br /><br />Every Friday morning, I have to completely erase everything on my iPhone then do a restore from the Cloud. I have a lot of apps, and it takes almost a hour to complete. What a pain. Never again, will I own an iPhone!
