Apple will release a upgrade version to add on NFC & blah blah blah.. In iPhone5S later.. This is the way they earn Apple Fanboy money.. They Sxck till the max now.. I'm totally disappointed.
Well.. I'm using Iphone3GS, ipad3, and my SGS3 now.. This is why I prefer Android now.

(please learn to respect and be polite for the opinion of others. peace)

If you said that they didn't include iPhone 5 with NFC and other unwell-established features, that's fine. But why they designed the iPhone 5 similar to iPhone 4s? The design is not the only design with classy feel

When I saw the 96% popularity,I was shocked. But when I see that most of the opinions about this phone,the reason why iPhone 5 has 96% popularity is because it sucks.

Android is getting better and better. Apple is really getting at the back of other competitors

> In reply to knewbie @ 2012-09-16 01:05 from nF4s - click to readhaha yeah 4000 comments and 90% are negative...most are from Apple fans who express disappointment because Apple bragged and bragged for a year that they will produce the best phone on the planet...and what did they do? Apple released iphone 5 - a phone that has inferior specs and features than other phones...and the two interesting features it has...LTE and Panorama, they COPIED form HTC and Samsung.
Biggest short-coming is no NFC! Ugly, stretched screen...even my iphone 4s is better than this piece of crap...just look at the ratings...all Apple Stuff are rated atleast an 8 or higher...iphone 5 is the only iphone that can't even get a 7! I am an Apple fan but I know junk when I see one. Iphone 5 disappoints all the way :(

nice phone. but don't have radio, real multi-tasking, memory card. for higher end phones these features must have even water resistant and shock proof. for me i prefer durable phone for my everyday use. i like xperia v. good camera 13mp but the secondary is vga. water resistant, nice features and design. i'll wait for xperia v

Damn all this hate from Android users.. That's how you know Apple is the most adavnced efficient os yesterday, today and tomorrow and the figures don't lie.. Sit down and stay pressed. No one wants to use your 2nd rated os for shit. Developers know ios is the main stage to showcase their apps. Who the hell use NFC, no one but 0.1 percent of the Android population. Apple still manages to make a glass & aluminum beautiful slim, and litephone without using cheap plastic. Everything on android just screams 2nd rated. Gazllion over hyped features that hardly works. Apple is not going to invest in overhyped comic features that will lead to problems. That is why it did not jump on the lte bandwagon at 1st. Who in the hell gonna jump on something that is not even well establish. LTE is still growing; NFC, wireless charging are just a few. iPhone hands down has the best flawless os and polished apps. I see why Apple hasn't added anything particular new, it's because their phones and os has been always been solid especially since the iPhone 4. The iphone is the only phone to have the best camera in the mobile world today. IPhone 5 will be no exception. Android has to come out with updates every 3-6 months. Jellybean, yes is a great addition but it's still not solid. Keep on reaching! iPhone 5 is a great addition to the apple family. I love the fact that when you get an iPhone you have the latest and greatest phone for that whole year, then you have Android that constantly comes out with new better phones for their standards every month. Now u don't have the latest and greatest phone as you may think and may at times feel cheated with your 1 month old stall phone. So to end this, Samsung loses #1 spot after being the #1 smartphone for 1 month, while Apple reclaims it's throne for another full year. Enough said!
