No doubt Apple will claim they invented the curved glass phone screen and claim this changes everything again again. Fanboys will rejoice and cry in wonder of the brilliance of apple

ive got the 3GS iphone & i like the shape of it , i had a look at the iphone4 & did'nt like it, it felt uncomfortable, so i like the look of the new iphone, i like a phone that's easy to hold, & it's easy to pay for apps with apple itunes cards & safer.

Who makes Apple glass? I thought the iCompany had a secret alliance with the Gorilla glass manufacturer.

that's all Apple so called 'new design', looks more like Apple has very bad taste, another over price crappy phone.

Few things that should be in iPhone 5 or any other phone.
1/ 5 MP camera is enough but improve the low light photography.
2/ Full HD video rec
3/ Noise Cancellation works excelent in iPhone 4 similar to Google Nexus. Improve more on this may be add a second noise cancellation mic and more complex algo.
4/ Increase the screen size to 3.7/4.0 without increasing overall size. maybe remove the home button totally.
5/ donot try to decrease the thickness of phone, 9.3 is good enough slim, but add bigger battery double the use time.
6/ Use super amoled plus. With new factory in place by samsung availability should be better.
