To buy or not to buy an iPhone 5? My video...

A few weeks ago I wrote about my doubts about the iPhone 5 and I'm still not decided so I went to an Apple store near my town to see how an iPhone 5 feels like.

This is what I found out:

What do you think? Are you getting one? Black or white?

Productivity, thy name is Android. Better email, widgets, (optionally) bigger screens, etc. Much more productive over there.

If Android is your thing, it might make you more productive. I prefer the iOS boat and iPhone 5 feels better at home for me with bigger screen estate and faster processing power. I'm leaning towards getting one. Which Android phone do you recommend Mickey?

hey Michael, did you going the end for the iPhone 5? I read your post with the reasons not to get an iPhone 5and they are true. The difference between the 4S and the 5 are not that great, and you do own many Apple devices, so having an odd one with a different connection can be a bit annoying...though you might need to start that change with one device ;) But still if I was in your case I would probably stick to your iPhone and wait for the 5S, however I know about the temptation to get a new glossy one. In my case, my phone died a couple of weeks ago, so I need a replacement and the iPhones are jaw-dropping, but sooo expensive (specially when you are a poor student :( )
And aside from this, I heard you bought the iPad mini... I would like if you wrote an entry on this blog on how you use it or plan to use it. I undertsand that it can be more portable and it is easier to carry with one hand...but you give up on the big screen. Worth it? i'd love to know more about your opinion on this :D

Take care y recuerdos a la familia y a la recien nacida.
Besos desde la fria inglaterra!

Yes, I'm going to get the iPhone 5... with the new iPad 4 as well. These two are my main productivity devices now so I need the best ones. And the iPhone5's frontal video camera is HD now, it's still a lot faster than my iPhone4s (and I need it to edit my videos in iMovie on the iPhone directly) so I'm getting the iPhone and the iPad - which conveniently are with the same, new connector. As for the Mini - I love it. My wife actually loves it even more and she took it from me. I'll write about it more on my blog. The big iPad is my main work device and it's good "creation" device - but the Mini is an amazing "consumption device" as it's so light, so portable and so "mini". I recommend you go to a local Apple store and play with it. You'll love it.
