Hot Air[edit]

Sorry, but its all a load of hot air. Probably all true, but still very few useful or interesting facts. Can't find anywhere where it tells me the difference between 5s and 5c, for example. Yeah, Im picky. Pardon me for being normal. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dutchdavey (talkcontribs) 16:16, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

timeline[edit]

I think the timeline can be a bit improved. The Iphone 4S 8GB shouldn't be broken, the iPhone5C models should be in the same lines as the iPhone5, while iPhone5S are new model lines. This would be much more accurate regarding the hardware and the production, maybe not so much the consumer perception. --Trickstar (talk) 15:38, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Not the first time it happens but it does not take away to be vigilant and alert has been detected that the use of clips which are not official cause significant damage to the iPhone 5 from Apple, so that the power supply when these are not connected to the current is weak and even non-existent. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ragnar7666 (talkcontribs) 16:15, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 17 February 2014[edit]

Article now reads: According to Finnish retailer Verkkokauppa iPhone 5 devices have as much as ten times the return rate of the Nokia Lumia 920 and three times higher return rates compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4. But reference 118 also says "The data does however reveal and confirm another rumour – that Lumias have a high repair rate – something we have posted on before. Compared to 0.74% of iPhone 5’s needing repairs and 1.39% of SGS4 handsets, 1.79% of Nokia Lumia 920 handsets need to be repaired." The table in reference 119 confirms this. I believe the reference is used in an obviously biased and selective manner. The sentence should be deleted or should be changed to "According to Finnish retailer Verkkokauppa iPhone 5 devices have as much as ten times the return rate of the Nokia Lumia 920 and three times higher return rates compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4, although only 0.74% of iPhone 5’s, 1.39% of SGS4 handsets, and 1.79% of Nokia Lumia 920 handsets actually need to be repaired."

yellow tickY Partly done The article now reads "According to Finnish retailer Verkkokauppa iPhone 5 devices have as much as ten times the return rate of the Nokia Lumia 920 and three times higher return rates compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4, although only 0.74% of iPhone 5s needed to be repaired." -- to ensure the article stays on the topic of iPhones. I hope this is a good compromise, thanks -BZTMPS · (talk? contribs?) 21:43, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
