This is the end of iphone's era.
They were proud be over-confident for what they claim as a unique design "rectangular bar with rounded edges" and they now got stuck on this design forever.

Good bye iphone!

Quality Materials? True, Apple have good build quality.
A6 CPU? Not sure if the best, but I'm sceptical it could beat the quad cores.
FaceTime over cellular network? do you mean videocall? It's not really a new feature. It's been used by Nokia in Symbian days a long time ago.
Better earphones? I think they copy the HTC+Beat Audio strategy.
Improved Camera. Ok lah.. but smartphone camera is just for fun, not for serious photography.
Go with Google offering.

I decided to always love Apple.

They limit my freedom - who needs micro SDs, blutooth file sharing, replacable batteries and such other nonsense...

Apple knows design, in fact Apple is the design. Whatever they produce must be the best there can ever be. If they produce something after the best ever, then errr....its the new best ever, the previous best ever does not count...

I also like how they give me old features as the new ones, hey - it's never been done by Apple before -so it is new!

If Apple says it's cool it must be cool, so I better believe it. I like to blindly belive in fables.

I was looking for my local Apple church, but could not find it yet. I must have been a bad boy looking at other phones, so the cool guys from Apple church do not give their location just to anyone. I think I have to buy all of their cool "i" stuff to be admnitted to the church.

Design always has to be the primary goal, even if we have to sacrifice function. If it looks cool then it must be cool.

Now lets put our hands together and pray to Apple almighty god, the savior and the leader of the sheep!

I am not for the apple brand but apple did its fans and customers a great injustice with this product called the iphone 5.
Apple users were expecting more, MUCH MORE because it was long overdue. I've spoken to some die hard apple users and they were disappointed. There are even those that say they are satisfied but you can tell by they gestures that deep down they're disappointed.

4.0 screen? This impPhone makes no sense.

Useless hype created for the 5 launch. Nokia Lumia recent launch was really better and worth waiting, but not this Apple launch..

All the hype for an upgraded 4s. Well they are the designers that patent retangular frame with round corners. I guess u really can't ask for more. Apple has reached thier limit.

Oh gosh!!! there is no debate anymore. This is a streached iPhone 4s and a new 8pin adapter..It that it apple?..Steve Jobs would be missed by apple alot. Who is gonna buy this crap of a phone. It still looks the same as iPhone 4S. Hey where are the apple fanboys? I guess they are disappointed themselves. They waited a long time to recieved nothing but same old iPhone. Dont worry iFans you can wait for iPhone 6 or run to The Robot Droid Android. Samsung,Sony,Htc etc Wins!
