Apple’s newest iPhone has dazzled 5 million consumers on the first three days after its release. The iPhone 5 immediately became a must-have for most smartphone users the moment it was introduced. But now that it’s all up for grabs, a lot of its users have complained about certain downsides they have encountered with the device. Does this mean that the iPhone 5 is not as brilliant as it seemed to be after all?
1. Apple Maps
Clearly, Apple and Google have not been in good terms lately and it only took Apple to strip off Google Maps as default in the iPhone to continue the war. In all fairness, they have created their own Maps app. However, many iPhone 5 users found the app to be buggy and inaccurate in a lot of places. Moreover, the Apple Maps didn’t seem to have overpowered the core features of Google Maps. I guess you wouldn’t be using this app for a while.

2. Slow Wi-Fi connection
Many users have reported to have encountered problems connecting to Wi-Fi networks with their iPhone. At times, it just drops the connection or doesn’t connect at all. Others have also claimed that even when standing next to a router, the Internet connection seems to still be really slow. You might probably consult this to an iStore near you or at least, if it’s worth a try, restart your iPhone.
3. Battery drain
Users who have the iOS 6.1 installed in their devices have complained of excess battery drainage and overheating. Reports said that it will supposedly be fixed by updating to the iOS 6.1.2 update but even after this has been done, the problems don’t seem to be fixed still. As a solution, you can still go for a hard reset, although you can just wait for the next update if it still does not work.
4. Easily scratched
Quite immediately after the launch, many reports about the iPhone 5 aluminum casing easily getting scratched around the edges emerged. It was easily chipped off, revealing the aluminum body underneath. Although Phil Schiller, Apple’s marketing boss, has said that this is “normal” for any aluminum product, many iPhone users don’t feel any better though.

5. Photos show a purple glare
The iPhone 5 camera should supposedly be the best of the iPhones yet. However, after several uses, many have noticed a purple glare in the standard flare lens effect we’ve been used to. The difference is remarkably clear between the photos captured by the iPhone 4 to those of the iPhone 5. A simple solution would be to find another angle, or shield the lens, to eliminate the problem.
The iPhone 5 may not be as glamorous as we think it is. There are temporary solutions to most of its problems though, but what we’d really want are permanent ones.
