I still haven’t managed to get my hands on iPhone 5. It’s been four days since it was officially launched and it’s the same story everyday; out of stock. Mee and I went to the local Apple Store yesterday and we were told that people were still queuing every morning to buy iPhone 5. The reservation starts a couple of days ago but I am quite keen to know if anyone actually managed to reserve one. The funny thing is that every time you reserve, Apple will try to inform you before 9pm if successful. If not, you will have to try again the next day.
I am kind of tired of reading iPhone 5 reviews. They are all quite the same. My first impression of the iPhone 5 when I first fiddled with it in the Apple Store was that it’s very light. Too light that it seemed fragile though some online videos proved that iPhone 5 is indeed very strong. iOS 6 is pretty smooth, that goes the same for the iOS 5.0.1 running on my iPad2 and iOS 5.1.1 running on Mee’s iPhone 4. Well, if I have an iPhone 4S, I don’t see the need to upgrade it. All features in iOS 6 are available for iPhone 4S. My ideal smartphone currently should have a good camera and smooth OS. I tried the huge Samsung Galaxy SIII yesterday at Carphonewarehouse but I wasn’t too impressed by it. It may be great using it at first but later, I think I will find it too big. Android isn’t particularly smooth on it either though it has a quad core processor. Anyway, the more I talk about it, you are just going to think of me as another Apple fanboy. Maybe it’s true though. As much as I hated Apple in the past, I now realise how easy it is to integrate things with Apple products.
On the other hand, I still don’t quite know how online ads work. In theory, it should target ads which are relevant to what’s the user is browsing. I search quite frequently about iPhone 5 lately and sometimes, I got ads regarding guy harvey jewelry or even insurance policy. Well, maybe it’s trying to match my search with iPhone 5 jewelry which didn’t really exist at the time I was searching. As for insurance, I believe that more and more people are taking mobile insurance and in New York City, the police are urging iPhone 5 users to register their smartphone serial numbers.
