Again apple introduced the brand new old iphone 4S with just increase in length..No NFC.. Same 8 megapixel. This is what they call innovation?.... what a shame....They are very innovative in suing other companies... Never going to by apple again...Bye Bye Apple !!!.

My boss owns an iPhone 4S and a Mac Air. I own a Nokia E63, Nokia N8, Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus and a Windows 7 OS Acer laptop. Whenever my boss doesn't know what to do next on what she's doing with her iGadgets,she would call and ask for my help. Without even reading manuals, i still get by and do the expected outcome. And she said,"The iPhone 5 is coming out soon. I'll trade my 4S for that.". Based on my experience, probably most buyers of the iPhone 5 will be old people. Coz they can have a brand new, shiny, classy, "IN" phone and can still use it for texting and calling without the fear of making themselves look stupid using it. This psychologically boosts their ego, making them feel that they are still a part of the ever-growing tech community.

If Samsung can improve the design of Galaxy S3 by using high quality material such as titanium or magnesium for casing, it will beat iPhone 5.

Even though the screen of iphone 5 is 4inch but it looks more elegant & higher class than Galaxy S3.

i dont own an iphone but i think that apple has a lot of better entertaining apps like games than android. and that is probably the reason why some people are attracted to iphone. some of my friends own an android phone and some own iphone. those who own android fone often borrow iphone just to play games. may be google should focus on how to improve android apps.

btw i own an android phone....

> In reply to Alex Cazan @ 2012-09-13 10:47 from MCrR - click to readI am not backing any company really just going to outright say that Apple is a clear lesser of the two evils, as I have worked for said evil corporations and neither care about the customer truly, and like all other companies in the world maintain that feeling. Its no secret that they are all greedy a-holes, and they simply compete in the biggest pissing contest. I am just tired of people who have not even tried the phone comparing the specs like its a damn item in an MMO like there is a layout that having all that overpowered crap, somehow equals better performance. I get heated on the subject because I purchase EVERY new iPhone, and android phone thats worthy (nexus, S3, S2, Bionic & a pile of phones later who knows) and extensively use these products in an attempt to figure out where that power is going. Ok compare an iPhone 4S camera to Anything but the Nokia Lumia 920, and well all those megapixels get wasted, its sad when my friend STOPS taking pictures in Vegas after seeing my 4s' compared to his S3, clear difference! If everything was soo dependent on out right specs then American muscle cars would still be the best, and finer engineered cars from Germany, Japan, and Korea are apart toy shit, yea how did that work out. . . Its such a simplistic way to view a product to simply demeanor its use based on, well a belief tgat the numbers matter! Im not saying anything bad, just can't understand people's arguments against something they have never used, complaining about something they don't know about, with a strict intention to sully a name just cause! People need to grow up and not be so closed minded, as I said I buy all of these products and yes I understand there is certain uses, but at the same time through my many different phones I swap between there is nothing my iPhone 4S can't do that my S3 does besides NFC. It may do it in a different way but still no big barrier, and what makes these number freaks think that an overall refinement to a 4s simply means that its an overall ample and just upgrade.

I love my galaxy note because of it's screen. I have ipod touch (3.5" screen) and it feels tiny. Like a toy made of aluminum.

4" screen was good 2 years ago. Now is the time of 4.5" plus cellphone.

I don't have long fingers but i want my phone to have a large screen.

When iphone4 was launched, it was like a storm. The design was marvelous. The screen was brought to retina level. It was just awesome.

But this iphone5?? Isn't it just a iphone4s with taller body? No wow factor. I think they should go with 4.5" HD display. Totally brand new design. Refreshed UI.

But despite many negative feedback, i'm sure apple can sell million of iphone5. It's their marketing strategy that takes the credit. Not the technology behind the phone.
