I suspect many users with their shiny new iPhone 5 will be downloading songs from iTunes Match at the same time.

Actually it's not the speed of the download but the amount of time it takes to process and clear an item off the list. The same thing was happening with the 4. Just hoped it would have improved on this phone.

Bigger screen is bound to be more attractive.
I agree, the iPad is very good but I like my phone to fit in my pocket.

Aren't you glad that Apple did not enable phone feature in its tablet?
Isn't that one of the rumoured features of the iPad mini? Can't see it myself tbh.
Is the iPhone 5's atenna better at picking up a cell signal indoors, compared to the 4 or 4S? (I ask because I'm thinking of swapping to an O2 broadband/mobile package, but O2 is normally only 1-bar, at best, in my house with a 4 or 4S.)
A good read:
I haven't had time to read the whole iPhone 5 thread - I've used the iPhone 4 for nearly 2 years and have found that, over the last 6 months maybe,that I haven't been using it very much other than as a phone.
I have to say I was expecting something a little more ground breaking with the iPhone 5 and I'm now thinking Galaxy S3 as my next upgrade in a few weeks, especially with the Jelly Bean update just around the corner.
I loved the iPhone 4 ( along with my iPod 4th gen and 'new' Ipad) but I don't feel the new iPhone is a massive leap forward.

I'd say, 'not really'. But we're going to look at this over an extended use as hard to say... Have replied in your comment on the review.

Apparently, the lightning dock adapters aren't going to be available until 25th Otober. On top of it, it is possible third party adapters will not work:
Lightning is starting to look like a very interesting tech as info comes out. It's 8 pins are adaptive, which means hardwear manufacturers are going to be able to assign pins to whatever they need rather than having a fixed pin out diagram. This should provide a huge amount of expandability going forward.

Interesting, thanks BB. I have a Chronos iDock that I use in my kitchen and a micro system in the bedroom with a dock, so I ordered two third party adapters from Amazon. All seemed to use the stock Apple photo, and some said actual product may be different. Some did not say that audio passed through, whereas others did. I obviously ordered one that said it did. The company has been in touch to say they expect stock at the end of September (ie now-ish) and for them to arrive early October. I'm half expecting they won't work, but if they don't do what was advertised I will return them.
If I do have to end up buying from Apple, the cost will be offset by the fact that earpods are going for around £25 on eBay, and I have no use for mine.

"Going forward"??!! -
What's wrong with writing/saying, "in future"?
Vis-à-vis said dock, when technical adjustments are made to take account of seasonal variations, Apple could have adopted an open kimono approach to cascade the information to its technical partners while maintaining a tightly controlled cost containment envelope in the context of a group turnover situation regarding the end-user's ownership proposition.
Right now, at this point in time, I am blue skying the incentivisational potentialities of all the exciting directions in which we can leverage our collective synergies.
