iPhone 5 Has Some Issues

The new Apple iPhone5 does not really meet expectations from an technical perspective.  I suppose we have high expectations of what Apple puts out but there are some issues with the new phone.  It is still a very impressive unit that is fast with an impressive interface.  Some of the issues that we see from our user community is a Purple Haze with photos that are taken with the new iPhone5.

It’s a similar problem that,was seen in iPhone 4S photos but was few and far between.  We would not see it that often and for the most part was not that present in that older model.  Another issue is battery life in some of the units.  There are some users that have no issues with the battery life but there are others that are experiencing  9 hours of life with limited talk time and limited application running on the IOS.  This is a common issue documented in the web which I would assume is a hardware issue. With some users that are complaining that their battery life was good at first but over time it is getting worse and not holding a charge properly.  More to come….

We are also seeing that this unit scratches a lot easier.  I feel that Apple prides itself on making products that aren’t just functional but beautiful as well and have a good track record of this but I can see that they missed the mark here. Users are reporting that after having their iPhone 5s for a short time, the sheen on the sleek, aluminum phone is getting scratched up very easily.  There is another issue that we are seeing related to weird screen bubbles that surface when using the unit.  It does not happen that often but with certain screen backgrounds there are small bubbles that appear when your finger is touching the screen.  As displayed in this video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4kYbiygU6A&feature=player_embedded#!
