even gsma are disappointed and i quote
"On the negative side, the iPhone 5 screen is only 4 inches big, and not only this, but only height was added, which, for instance, would bring no real benefit in most games and would help web browsing only in landscape mode. The camera is mostly the same as on the 4S, and LTE connectivity in Europe is still as scarce as water in the Sahara to be really worth it. Finally, the new sleeker connectivity jack renders all previous docking accessories obsolete and yet, provides no intercompatibility with the all-reigning microUSB. Not to mention the new nano SIM card, which would be a major pain in the butt, if you’ve got an unlocked iPhone and you’d like to swap SIMs frequently.

Honestly, I’m already tired of hearing Apple’s stale remarks how the new iPhone or the new iPod was Apple’s best thing so far. What I wanted to see today on stage was pure innovation, something that would again open new doors and make other manufacturers lose their breath in trying to catch up.

Instead, what I got was a predictable phone with unexciting specs; a phone that I would hardly call cutting edge, top-of-the-line, and all those labels that usually go hand in hand with Apple’s latest. After all, the iPhone has always been the most expensive SIM-free smartphone on the market. "

I don't no why some people are so crazy about iphone. They always downclock processors, no quad core, always fighting over patent. And what kill me most is that their products are expensive. Samsung s2 is equal to iphone 5.

> In reply to Ashu_anonymous @ 2012-09-13 11:58 from 2wID - click to readI personally like the design of the iPhone 5 but for the rest it's "déjà vu".

I always say it and will repeat it again the iPhone camera are good, even if Samsung and Sony are also good but this is were the iPhone impress me.
The iPhone 5 Retina display use to impress me no anymore. I didn't have a chance to buy a iPhone just because it was too expensive and still expensive.

The less expensive iPhone cost $199 on contract as a high end phone like the GS3, HTC ONE X, Razr HD but 2 more options are left for the iPhone the one of $299 and $399.

While I can get myself a Razr M a mid range phone with capacity of high end phone including the iPhone 5 for just $99 on contract.

The Razr M get reviews and get compared to the GS3 and the iPhone 5 while it's just a mid range phone. Meaning the Razr M have what iPhone 5 have or even better.

While the Razr HD and Razr HD Maxx got better screen than iPhone 5 which are HD screen with Colorboost Super Amoled and give a ppi of 326ppi vs 306ppi for iPhone 5, the Razr M have qHD screen Superior Amoled and 256ppi edge to edge screen like the Razr HD and the Razr HD Maxx. The result is that the Razr M are more bright and colorful than some high end phones like the GS3 which or compared to the iPhone 5 but both more expensive.

Here how the Razr M stand against the iPhone 4 with Motorola edge to edge in action with 40 per cent more screen space and purportedly 40 per cent more battery life than Apple's iPhone 4S, it feels much sturdier than Samsung's Galaxy S III.

Razr M vs iPhone 4S

The build quality of the Razr M beat any high end phone in the market including the iPhone 5.

Kevlar material on the Razr M, HD, Maxx make them one of the wrongest and protected phone in the market with water repelling the Razr M beat the iPhone 5 and other high end phones.

Finally the Razr M with more juice than the GS3 with Motorola Smart Action give the 2000 mAh on the Razr M a long battery life to go through a full day.

Just for $99 the Razr M give the what most of the high end in the market give.

I concur the HTC One X is a great phone, much nicer and much better than the S3 which it's cheap parts and no name manufacturers while HTC has beats audio, nvidia and other well known companies hardware in their phones. Still tough the iPhone is more reliable, stable, smoother, apps work better and that's an undeniable fact and they don't need a quad core cpu. Android has to many platforms unlike Apple who has 1 and that's the problem with their Android OS.

mostly the same. The usual performance upgrade. RAM is double of the 4S, there is 4G and a faster chip. Design is generally the same as the 4s, except the two tone finish in the back and .5" bigger screen.

It could never do the iphone 4 magic (the design from 3gs to 4). Anyways hoping to get hands on one. Still perfectly fine with my 4S though.

After checking the specifications of iPhone 5, I found Samsung Galaxy S3 still scores better on it in comparison to features and price provided by Apple !!

My hope about iPhone 5 was -
1. Quad Core
2. More Camera MP
3. Memory Slot
4. More Pixel
5. Bigger Screen
6. USB On-the-go support
7. NFC

All I want to know is the SAR radiation rating. When all is said and done, that's what's important. When will the manufacturers own up to this problem?! If they don't, lawsuits are just around the corner. The radiation in my phones is causing me severe pain. My hand feels like a tight rubberband is around my wrist and my hand is exploding with pressure and burning. It's also shattering the bone in my elbow.
