Not more objective, no. But their initial reaction to "new" functionalities from a smart phone would definitely be more in line with me than someone who has had a smartphone for the past 5 years.
They will also report on "problems" for them that veteran users might already know the work-around and not even bother to think about.
A veteran user will be comparing I5 to I4s or before, hence comparing specific options to each other, where as I am interested in the overall impression from jumping from a pay as you go talk/txt only phone to a full mini-computer phone.
What I WANT is an actual review from someone who has bought an I5 and is currently using it.
