    The 5 is prone to dings (scratches showing up) as compared to the 5S. Just be careful about that. The size and feel is good.

    Your gonna get bored after a week if your a hardcore user. Jailbreak it before iOS 8 goes out to the masses. PangU still works for 7.1.2.

    Jailbreaking, yes I can do it.
    I wanted it for Wife, but she insists that I keep the new phone.

    More of less, it is an experiment.

    If it treats me well, very good.
    If no, I would just sell it and get a Nokia 1000 Rs phone.

    Got a Belkin Play N600 DB Router for the place. My faithful Belkin N150 finally conked off after 3 years of service.

    To save the hassle of carrying an extra cable around just for the lighting port on the iPhone, bought a micro-USB to lighting converter.

    The 30 pin works for my iPod Touch and this for the iPhone. Best bit, this allows a regular USB cable to work as a data cable as well, not just for charging.

    I think the whole phone fad has somewhat faded, with the number of frequent releases, I find less people really bothered about their phone or the phone in the next guy's hands.

    Indeed. Manufacturers need to stop churning out devices annually. They need to space out releases for a following to build up.

    The annual release + variants of the same phone + availability delay in specific regions + more models that can be accounted for = declining phone swag

    Qck Heavy for life.
    Stack it with a Goliathus Speed if you like slightly slippery cloth texture.
