Cons rating : Yes all of you know by now that who is the definite loser here(Winner of Cons rating ) ,needless to say that it is better to stay away from Apple iPhone 5(until it gets fixes ) ,if you are not a die hard fan of the Brand alone!
It’s not really like the title goes ,but to some extent ,at least one version of iPhone 5 vibrates louder ,that is enough to make a user to panic in some situations .It is reported by many technology blogs including thenextweb ,that Apple Phone5 vibrates louder than iPhone 4s .
Back in iPhone4 they were using the same technology used in iPhone 5 now ,that is a very common type of motor ,that rotates the elements inside and vibrate .But Apple has started using a nicer vibrating system in Apple iPhone4S. For everyone’s surprise ,Apple rolled out it’s new device with the old technology that gives poor result.
Then, when the Verizon iPhone 4 rolled around, Apple had swapped it out for the nicer linear oscillating vibrator, which provides a smoother, more ‘accurate’ and quieter vibration. The iPhone 4S also used this nicer option for its vibration motor- Thenextweb
Here is the motor used in Apple iPhone4s for smoother vibration :

Apple should have it’s own reasons to go back . But the company that knows how to create magic ,still sells Apple like hotcakes !
Probably you are fed up with the Apple Map by this time and searching for some better app .The C.E.O of Apple itself, has suggested to move iOS6 users to alternative solutions for Maps while they figuring out the way to make it perfect .
If you have updated your Existing iPhone4/4S ,any other iPads to iOS6 or you have purchased the latest iPhone5 ,now you have lost the great Google Maps.
How to get Google Maps in your iPhone and how to get a permanent shortcut in your phone ?
The stand alone Google Maps has been removed by the Apple in iOS6 ,but still you can use the web version for your mapping needs .
iOS 6 users should open their web browser and navigate to maps.Google.com. The Google Maps web app will ask to use your current location. To save Google Maps to your home screen, in Safari tap the share button at the bottom center of the screen (with the arrow and box). Then tap Add to Home Screen.
Enter a name for the shortcut or leave the entry as "Google Maps" and tap the Add button. From now on, you can immediately launch Google Maps from the home screen.
Loading time may be little longer as it has to be downloaded from internet .
