People try a Galaxy 3 and say "this phone is cheesy compared to my i4 and my brother's i4s. I'm taking the plastic POS back when my iPhone 5 is available.
People who have the i5 absolutely love it --same as has been the case with the i4 and i4s. Nobody is taking their i5 back.
About the camera, that is all crudola. I'll bump my dispositive post momentarily.
As for the mapping? What a pile of crudola. Several apps already fully address the issue and AAPL maps are better by day.
About the back cover being easily scratched? Those experiencing this should immediately stop running sand paper across their phones and make sure their uncovered phones are not placed in pockets full of sand.
