The most anticipated device of 2012, the iPhone 5 was finally launched with a huge suspense that was finally brought down by the negative reviews we mostly got about it. The first reactions from blogs and people alike were mostly negative mentioning it only as a big screen and nothing else.
Well those Apple fans amongst you, we have got a good news, and that is we have got benchmarks regarding the iPhone 5 and to some it might surprise you.
