It's just really fvckin cool.... No benefit to navigation lol

I don't know about you, but I can't step outside and see a 3D view of New york, san fran, chicago, etc. etc. etc.

been using it for a couple weeks and its been great. phone doesnt get hot. nothing out of the ordinary and the quality of the cable looks on par with the oem cable. it was $7ish total i think
Can you confirm the cable supports audio out?
Plug it into your car or computer and try to play music via USB.

I just read the reviews on amazon for the fakes

No on audio yes on sync and charging.

I ordered the dumb $29 adapter.

I do have 4 old cables that can still be used

Sweet, I need one just for charging in my car, as I have a AUX input. Love that the HP jack is at the bottom now for this reason

Not sure if this is APPLE but seems legit.... kinda...

No way it's apple. The rumor is the adapter has a built in DAC which is not cheap- part of the reason why it costs $29 instead of $19.

My Apple lightning cord was $19 at the Apple store. The adapter was $19 at the time I believe. The prices on the Apple website and the store were conflicting.

I left my iPhone on my lap

went to the gas station, got out, dropped on straight concrete, bounced on all 4 corners

Sh!t's a beast, there's a little knick on a corner but the black anodize didn't even chip off

I can replace the back of the case for $75~, just unscrew 2 screws - but I don't really notice it

not bad for being naked

Sync and charge are easy.
Audio out is where the trick is.
Apple's OEM cable supports it.

Actually that's incorrect...

The iPhone 5 went back to TOP down construction, so to replace the back you have to remove EVERYTHING. Which is actually better because the screen is more important than the back. I used to replace iphone 3g fronts all the time for people, to replace the 4's front was a little more difficult because they did bottom to top construction, but the back was just two screws... The front of the 5 is a peace of cake to replace now, the back, not so much...

Has anyone's phone been freezing up or lagging recently? For the past 3-4 days my phone keeps lagging whenever I try to send a text or open an app... even sometimes just trying to turn the screen on will cause it to lag

Yep! I'm glad that I'm not the only one experiencing that.

Naw, I'm still on the OG 6.0 software. I am waiting for the JailBreak, so I'm avoiding the upgrade(s).
