Time Magazine has tapped the iPhone 5 as its gadget of the year. Heck, no surprise to us. After a month of using it, I think it’s the best iPhone yet. What does Time have to say? “…Apple still has no peer.”

This is the full blurb from the iPhone section on the TIME.com best of list:

Apple may be responsible for more than its share of the tech industry’s great leaps forward, but it’s at least as good at fussing over the tiny little details other companies ignore. The iPhone 5, which starts at $199 with a two-year contract, is one of the most artfully polished gadgets anyone’s ever built, with a taller screen than previous iPhones built into a thinner, lighter case. The camera, with a particularly well-done panorama mode, is another highlight. There are lots of nifty smartphones out there, including the iPhone’s impressive archrival, Samsung’s Galaxy S III. But when it comes to melding hardware, software and services so tightly that the seams fade away, Apple still has no peer.

No arguments here. And if you’re just getting an iPhone 5, here are a few things to do first with it.
