… that is the question! Even before its official launch on September 12th, we’d been hearing rumours about the iPhone 5 for what seems like forever, so has it lived up to expectations and is it actually worth buying?

There’s no denying that the iPhone 5 (available at Carphone Warehouse ) is the ultimate smartphone to rival all smartphones. It boasts the biggest screen the iPhone has seen, is thinner than ever, and has an overall slick and sexy aesthetic. And it’s not just the exterior that’s impressive, as the new operating system is second to none – it’s speedier than ever, the resolution is higher, the camera is incredible and it’s essentially everything you love about the iPhone 4S but better!

One factor that’s deterring some avid Apple users from digging deep into their pockets and investing in one is its resemblance to the iPhone 4S. However we can confirm that it’s well worth the investment. If you’re gadget geeks like us you’ll notice all the differences and you won’t be able to live without it….literally.

If on the other hand you’ve never had the absolute pleasure of owning an iPhone then there is no better time like the present. The apps are addictive and it makes managing all your social media relationships a complete breeze.

But be warned – it poses a serious hazard to ALL personal relationships. You’ll be so glued to your phone that it’s unlikely you’ll have time for anything else. We suggest you start dropping the subtle hints now….Xmas is round the corner and how great would it be to find one of these babies in your stocking!
