About this product

Item Description

Check your local store for availability
Thin, sleek, and very capable.
It's hard to believe a phone so thin could offer so many features: a larger display, a faster chip, the latest wireless technology, an 8MP iSight camera, and more. All in a beautiful aluminum body designed and made with an unprecedented level of precision.The iPhone 5 16GB Verizon measures a mere 7.6 millimeters thin and weighs just 112 grams.1 That's 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than iPhone 4S. The only way to achieve a design like this is by relentlessly considering (and reconsidering) every single detail - including the details you don't see.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by A Totally Amazing Phone! I saw that Walmart was running a special on the new Apple iPhone 5 ($127) so I decided this was a great time to upgrade from my older phone...and boy am I glad I did! This phone is AMAZING! It is so light weight (weighs half of what my older phone did), is super thin (about the thickness of a pencil), the new processor is amazingly fast and smooth for surfing the Internet, and the new larger retina screen is absolutely beautiful (my photos just jump right off the screen)!This phone is everything I had hoped it would be and more. Well done, Apple for an amazing product! And kudos to Walmart for the amazing price! 01/06/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Exceeds all expectations! I got this phone the weekend it came out and it is AMAZING!!! There are no kinks to be worked out in this phone! It never freezes, shuts off randomly, and I've dropped it so many times I'm surprised it even works. Of course we all know the quality of apple! Walmart has the lowest price and the nicest sales associates (at least in my walmart store)! I can not stress how much I love my iPhone 5!!! If you're a big apple iPhone fan you simply can NOT go wrong with this phone!!! :) 02/11/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by It looks nice but has a defect back camera I bought this phone during sales. Unfortunately the back camera does not focus at all. I found this problem after 14 days of purchase. So Walmart will not replace it nor take it back, which I understand. Policy is policy, right? Called Apple a couple of times, they are willing to send a replacement ("refurbished 100% working phone") to me but I would have to pay $29 for shipping. I think this is not fair since it was purchased in less than one month and it is a defect product. By the way, each time I called Apple, they were pushing me to buy Apple Care for $99 in order to get this issue resolved. 02/04/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great phone Im a big iPhone fan already. But got this at Walmart for 98.00 which is 100.00 less than At&t. Love it so mach. It's fast, takes great pictures and is just an overall great phone. Would recommend it to anyone. 09/05/2013
