"Switched from EVO 4G to iPhone 5 - Still on the fence."2.5 starson by tjosephjr
Pros: Very stylish phone if it's not in a case.
Intuitive, easy to pick and use as a semi-convert.
The size is a nice change.
It's nice to have a phone that doubles as an ipod.
Cons: No back button!!!
Speed isn't faster for me
Scratches very easily
"Reader" button when expanding page
Siri is a letdown
Having to deal with the Apple Store
Entering Apple ID constantly
Summary: The jury is still out for me. I have to decide to stick it out for two years with this phone or switch back to the familiarity of the droid. I've only had the phone for five days, so I will push it to the last minute.
I miss my widgets and I miss having a menu for each app. There's perhaps a learning curve here, but having a simple menu button for each app just seems sensible to me.
Siri, what a letdown! After the commercials, I was as excited as a little kid at Christmas to play with Siri. So far the only thing that's been any fun with Siri is changing the accent of Siri.
Having to go to the Apple store to get any support is truly frustrating! I had to make an appt with a "Genius" just to purchase the extended warranty!!! Sorry, but that is RIDICULOUS!!! Especially since the Apple store is a complete madhouse day and night. If I never have to step foot in that store again, that would please me to no end.
As the navigation that comes with the phone is woefully lacking, I had to download Telenav GPS, which was free on the EVO and not free, for some reason, on the iPhone.
When I expand a page on the internet, the text does not fit within the screen, which may be a deal breaker. Some pages have the option to hit the "reader" button, but it's still not the same. I really miss that feature from the EVO...that and the back button :)
I never considered myself the type of user that would miss the freedom of the droid platform, but I don't think I realized that some of the functions on the droid that I took for granted were due to said freedom.
I guess I will have to figure out which way I'm going to go by the end of next week. But if I go back to a droid, it will not be the Samsung III. Open for suggestions!!! (respectful suggestions)
