Foose’s new phone: iPhone 5


As stated on my previous article on the AT&T Impluse 4G, I am the semi-proud and confused owner of an iPhone 5.  Be not afraid though, the Impulse 4G is safe in case the worse could happen.

I recommend:  Getting a good case for it, but not something too bulky.  I got an Otter box case and I had trouble working the keyboard because that case is bulky and I swear it could stop a bullet.

My opinion on this phone:  This is my first iPhone, so I think it is an incredible piece of art and technology.  I do empathize with the 4S users that this phone has no ground breaking piece of software or technology, just a mere improvement over the 4S.   I do miss the SWYPE function from the Android, the keys are kind of weird on the iOS as they have odd detection.  The phone is incredibly fast and smooth operating.  I will have to say I expected more from Siri, and that there is good competition for it out there.  Overall, a great phone.
