phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 6 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Solid construction and premium feel
  • Great display (high resolution, natural colors, high contrast ratio, wide viewing angles)
  • Peppy performance with the new dual core processor
  • Apple iOS continues to be arguably the most simple and intuitive smartphone platform
  • Apple iOS 5 offers many enhancements including the great new notifications system
  • Siri works amazingly well and is by far the most powerful voice recognition service to date
  • On-screen QWERTY keyboard is one of the best out there with superlative auto-correction
  • Brilliant camera (great detail levels, realistic color production, good low light performance, great flash performance, quick shutter speed)
  • Brilliant video recording (sharp details, good exposure, natural colors, crystal clear audio)
  • Great audio/video playback
  • Great web browsing experience
  • Good call quality
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Apple's App Store continues to be the best app store around - both in quality and quantity of apps available

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The Contacts App still remains a bit sparse (relative to competition from Android and Windows Phones), and does not offer any add-on features like social networking integration, message history or album connectivity
