quoted from gsma "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."
surely anyone with half a brain will realize there are better phones out there, alot cheaper too
maz, 13 Sep 2012Lumia 920 maybe better than iphone 5 but WP don't have any apps.Hi brother.
When apple and android were in their immature days their stores also had limited apps. As of now Microsoft claims to have more than 1,00,000 apps and increasing very fast in WP Marketplace. This is because Windows Phones are increasing very rapidly (not comparing to android or iPhone).
Hmm if that is really what you are waiting for but some of us on the inside know that the A6 is the ARM A-15 which is the future for the next generation of android phones (note that I don't capitalize the a in android), and is the future of well working devices. You know a phone that makes calls w/o crashing the "dialer application" like my unlocked S3 does, so when you android freaks love to bash and iPhone users laugh with there working products you will see where the next stage of ripping off comes from. It is no secret that stealing pays off, with lawsuits awarding a mere fraction of revenue from stealing yet I still attempt to us the competitors products w/ a mere paperweight in the end. Seriously don't bash something unless you can afford or have the guts to try something new, buy an iPhone 5 and if you don't like it sell it on eBay and get an S3 and a note 2 because the quality of product speaks for itself. Many of us iPhone users who are not all about simplicity are just tired of the ignorant close minded views of android users ill informed, and reluctant to try the competition. I thought Apple users were bad, until android that is like the tech trash of the Internet. So when you stop caring about numbers and learn who quality is, then but only then should you attempt to allow your brain to think.
a flagship product. no sd card. tiny 4 inch tft screen. apple is so 2008.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012Nothing compared to Galasy S III and Note II. Just out of the game.Agreed. I was watching a trailer for the remastered version of Star Trek's original series and they said they wouldn't be making the Enterprise do barrel rolls, they'd just "make peoples' mouths water a little more" with the net result that nothing was really too different, you were just being served the same in higher definition. Mind you, Apple zombies who aren't used to new stuff and innovation will crow about this for the next two years, it's Android fans who will think the iPhone is crap as they are so used to bigger and better things happening all the time.
Good luck to iphone users for next 24 month with old technolgy even Galaxy s2 is much better than iphone 5. By the time your 24 months is over Samsung & other Androids will be atleast 5 years ahead of iphones. The Galaxy s3, Galaxy note 2, Htc one X, and other highend androids destroy this iphone 5 and Apple said this iphone will put Galaxy s3 to shame???
What has changed? Just the screen!
Who would buy this?
I think the better go is Nokia Lumia 920. It has a lot more features and an innovation than this phone. I don't care whether Nokia Lumia 920 is slightly heavier than this but it's the phone on which it's worth to spend the money. It's the innovation.
Apple is not the same as it was in the reign of Steve Jobs.
aged design. even for the icons apple cares about so much. lol.
i was at a store other day and absolutely nothing drew me to iphone stand. booooring.

Also cheap? Are you high? And 800x480 up to HD, screen size, memory, camera, chipset, audio, ram, and multiple software additions. Aren't nothing. Just saying.

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012I just don't understand people here saying there is nothing new!!!!
What do they expect from ... moreI think what people are saying is it has nothing new as a smartphone... everything it offers in terms of hardware and software features already exist (and have for some time) in other smartphones.
As an iphone it is "new" and contains hardware/sorfware that did not exist on Apples previous iphones...
It offers nothing new to the industry.
