Apple has been making most of their money this year by buying then leasing out old patents, and appstore profit sharing. They don't need to sell well.

ip+5 Years=ip5. That's it. Sell your Apple shares and reap the benefit. Please don't wait for it to hit the bottom. Downhill is in sight. SJ would now be weeping in his grave.

I am amaized AGAIN that iphone 5 YET AGAIN managed to offer nothing new, no new idea, no new innovation, even the screen is only slightly bigger, while demand grows for 4.3 and above scale
ipohne will never compete with the heavy weight out there, like of amaizing s3, sony erricson, even HTC is breaking the boundry of innovations

give it few months you all learn that iphone 5 is not shifting as fast as expected

what was the buzz around, everyone waiting for the iPhone to be released and here it is, iPhone 5 but whats new? Same everything, its like a brother of 4s and 4, whom has got roughly the same faces and body, but internally has a few different organs than 4 and 4s. I think Apple has no more creative ideas or new form of innovation.

Its the same stuff being released year after year and you all(especially brainwashed americans) keep eating it up. WAKE UP, its just minor upgrades, iOS hasn't changed much and its been around since? Since 2007 wth.

Tell me what this phone can do that the galaxy note 2, or any other phone that's been released in the last 4 months, cannot do or be modified to do?

Like i said, its just minor upgrades(higher pixel density, more sensitive lens etc). The design stays the same over a long period of time(even up to now), the iOS which has a smooth and premium build is pretty much the same with no new gestures or useful addons and not to mention lack of freedom, its a locked OS, period.

This isnt moving forward at all. Looks almost the same and I can only assume that it "feels" the same(im speaking software wise).
