Anmeldelser af iPhone 5 og IOS 6

iphone_5_white

Fra i dag sælges iPhone 5 i Danmark, en uge efter at den kunne købes i UK og USA.

Nu har diverse IT journalister rent faktisk haft telefonen i hånden og haft mulighed for at gennemføre diverse tests. Så her er reaktionerne.

Opsummering af anmeldelser

Et billede tegner sig:

  • iPhone 5 er hardwaremæssigt den bedste mobiltelefon nogensinde. Design og teknisk performance er genial og i top.
  • IOS 6, styresystemet som kommer med iPhone 5, gør det godt med en lang række forbedringer, herunder bedre integrering med Facebook, bedre mail osv; men begynder efterhånden at have alderstegn. Afhængig af synsvinkel kan man enten sige, at Apple er konservativ, og ønsker at styresystemet er pålideligt, transparent(ingen uigenneskuelige scripts gør ting for dig) og stabilt; eller man kan mene at Apple er lidt bagefter med de mere ‘Eye-Catchy’ features som ikoner der er levende, og ‘intelligente’ features, som evnen til at forudse hvad brugeren taster ind eller spørger om.
  • Apple Maps, som kommer med IOS 6, var ikke færdig til lancering.

And its iOS 6 operating system, while largely an improvement over iOS 5, now features turn-by-turn directions, but significantly poorer maps and directions (which Apple has stated it intends to greatly improve over time). The iPhone 5 is exactingly, thoughtfully designed from the inside out, and Apple’s attention to detail shows. It’s by a wide margin the best iPhone ever built, and, with a gdgt Score of 96, is one of the best smartphones ever made.

Wired

Overall, the iPhone 5 feels like the logical next step, an extension of an ecosystem that’s already in full flight. Though it will inevitably happen, I can’t imagine Apple improving the hardware any further. Everything just feels right, from the screen to the performance to the phone’s physical presence. The only real things to complain about are the problems with iOS 6.

Ars

The iPhone 5 didn’t come with a few features some wanted, such as support for near field communications (NFC), micro-USB, an SD card reader, a fingerprint scanner, USB 3.0 support, etc. But Apple has always favored simplicity over a kitchen-sink approach to new features and, aside from USB 3.0 and NFC (still rumored for a possible future release), many of the items on a hardcore geek’s wishlist just aren’t likely to show up in an iPhone. If these are features that matter to you—and they do matter to many Ars readers—it’s probably best to stick with some Android devices or one of the new Windows Phones.

 But for many users, especially more mainstream ones, the iPhone 5 has the features that matter: a great camera, high-speed LTE data, a nice-looking screen (now displaying even more information), and a speedy processor. Combined with the new features introduced in iOS 6 such as camera panoramas, additional Siri features, turn-by-turn driving directions, Do Not Disturb, and more—the new phone should have broad appeal.

Still, the iPhone 5 absolutely shines. Pick your benchmark and you’ll find Apple’s thin new weapon sitting at or near the top. Will it convince you to give up your Android or Windows Phone ways and join the iOS side? Maybe, maybe not. Will it wow you? Hold it in your hand — you might be surprised. For the iOS faithful this is a no-brainer upgrade. This is without a doubt the best iPhone yet. This is a hallmark of design. This is the one you’ve been waiting for.

TechCrunch

Those worried about the talk of “disappointment” surrounding the iPhone 5, I suggest you simply go to an Apple Store starting on Friday and try it for yourself. My guess is you’ll immediately recognize just how ridiculous all that bluster actually is. The iPhone 5 is the culmination of Apple doing what Apple does best. This is the smartphone nearly perfected.

New York Times

Should you get the new iPhone, when the best Windows Phone and Android phones offer similarly impressive speed, beauty and features?

The iPhone 5 does nothing to change the pros and cons in that discussion. Windows Phones offer brilliant design, but lag badly in apps and accessories.

Android phones shine in choice: you can get a huge screen, for example, a memory-card slot or N.F.C. chips (near-field communication — you can exchange files with other N.F.C. phones, or buy things in certain stores, with a tap). But Android is, on the whole, buggier, more chaotic and more fragmented — you can’t always upgrade your phone’s software when there’s a new version.

IPhones don’t offer as much choice or customization. But they’re more polished and consistently designed, with a heavily regulated but better stocked app catalog. They offer Siri voice control and the best music/movie/TV store, and the phone’s size and weight have boiled away to almost nothing.

CNET

Of course, consumers are not always out to achieve perfection in form. They want big reasons to upgrade. There are some here, no doubt — big ones. But there isn’t a single “magic thing” like FaceTime on the iPhone 4, or the experience of using Maps on the first iPhone…or, even Siri on the iPhone 4S, which wasn’t magical for everyone. (It’s better now.) Apple seems to be saying, “Hey, remember that iPhone you love? It still has everything you love, but better.”

Now the time comes to step back and evaluate the whole elephant that is the iPhone 5, rather than hyper-examine each one of its parts. It’s hard to find a single part of the iPhone that hasn’t been rewritten, redesigned, retooled. It’s an impressive attention to detail, but it amounts to a rewriting or a heavy revision. The funny thing is, most technology fans want to see great first drafts, not polishes. Most everyday consumers want to see exactly the opposite.
