No. I do find your question strange though, Rhonindk--the music player on the iPhone 5 is the same music player as on any device running iOS 6.

Don't be jealous of your friends and their iPhone 3GS, Kevin. Sure they can sync their tunes and use hotspot but you'll be able to do the same--and so much more--with a new iPhone 5. Go for it!

re: iPhone 5: My First Week
So the iPhone 5 being the world's lightest, thinnest, toughest, fastest, best supported smartphone doesn't excite you? Well, I suppose it's good to be phlegmatic...

That's strange, Venturen. I switched to iPhone and I couldn't be happier. Perhaps someday Apple will make a phone that Venturen wants. It'll be just for you!

Does anyone else find the music player on the i5 to be seriously underwhelming?

Via your browser, go into Google Play and Amazon and look at the apps.

When the 4S came out it no longer fit my needs. I found the Google Play Store had almost every app the Apple Store did or a very close equivalent. Knowing that, I went shopping for a phone that did what I needed. The App Store between Apple and Android is a wash excluding some unique (usually good) games. That is even shrinking though.

I now use a Galaxy Nexus as my personal phone.
I do have an iphone 5 as a work phone.
I like the Nexus much better and am waiting for the next Nexus to come out.

No... Definitely not normal.
That said, I have the i5 and mine was defect free.

On awakening, it does take longer to connect to wifi than my i4 but not bad - just a few seconds.
The wifi issues are likely from iOS6 - have a wifi dropping issue in the i4 but the i5 is okay.
A work buddy had his 64gb model arrive with chipped edges. The local Apple store did swap it out even though they do not advertise it.

Overheating has not been an issue for me even when playing Horn.

re: iPhone 5: My First Week
Glad for you. I use both and prefer the Galaxy Nexus.
On the 3GS I installed iOS6 and compared it to another 3GS still on 5.1.1
Anything linked into Safari runs a bit faster. Most other stuff runs a bit slower.
Biggest issue, I am seeing a number of screen freezes I suspect have to do with low ram levels. I have the SHSH file so I will likely be downgrading it.

Biggest issue I have with Siri, is it fails about a third of the time. If I have to redo a command or task, why am I using Siri?

Chuckle - clueless.
On JB, using GNow routinely, I wish Siri had even half the ability.
Siri is great at responding but totally lacks the ability to determine my wants and needs across any OS that uses my gmail login and building that into an administrative assistant that works remarkably well.

My guess is you really have no idea how it works and did little more than just look.
