1:27 /

Our top smartphone pick of 2012, the iPhone 5 incorporates a lot of great features that we were waiting for.

Hi. I'm Scott Stein and when it comes to iPhone history, there are a lot of features that a lot of people want to see in iPhones over the years that hasn't been there; faster 4G LTE, maybe a lighter design, a larger screen. Well, a lot of that has been incorporated into the iPhone 5 and it's what makes it a really go-to pick among all iPhones and among all smartphones right now because of the fact that it's finally got features that match up with competitors and yet somehow been put into a device that's really light and doesn't really sacrifice battery life compared to other iPhones. It doesn't have Android obviously but if you want iOS, it's the one to go with and it is a-- overall, very sleekly designed device with a fantastic camera, a really nice screen, a really nice design and there's really not much to dislike about it other than perhaps maps, and that fact that you're gonna have to connect to different connector for a lot of your accessories. Unlike a lot of big screen smartphones, the iPhone 5 is discreet, it's compact and it still manages to fit in a larger screen and a lot of great features that we've been waiting for. It's a fantastic all around phone and it's one that a lot of Android users are going to envy too. I'm Scott Stein, and that's a look at the new iPhone 5.
