As always reviews of the new iPhone have been very positive with many reviews calling it the best smartphone available on the market today. Engadget’s Tim Stevens concluded his review by saying “Still, the iPhone 5 absolutely shines. Pick your benchmark and you'll find Apple's thin new weapon sitting at or near the top. Will it convince you to give up your Android or Windows Phone ways and join the iOS side? Maybe, maybe not. Will it wow you? Hold it in your hand -- you might be surprised. For the iOS faithful this is a no-brainer upgrade. This is without a doubt the best iPhone yet. This is a hallmark of design. This is the one you've been waiting for.”

Overall, every reviewer called the new iPhone 5 the best smartphone yet and one analyst even referred to it as ‘Rolex of the smartphones’. Below we have added links to 15 best iPhone 5 reviews posted online:
