Rrhoads420, 13 Sep 2012Hmm if that is really what you are waiting for but some of us on the inside know that the A6 i... moreWading through that unparagraphed block of text was a nightmare. In my experience Android (capital A because it's a name, basic grammar mate) works out more reliable than Apple since the products appear to be tougher and have longer warranties. Also Samsung staff don't kill themselves, and the GS3 has been doing what the iPhone does for months now.
Yeah the iPhone has a powerful processor and is simple to use, however its anti-competitive practice with micro sims and closing iTunes off for other devices puts me off. Microsoft used to get done all the time for being anti-competitive. All I can say is Apple's lawyers must really be feared because nobody seems to point out how anti-competitive Apple are. Stop spending money on glass buildings and start innovating.
fake release...its a fraud by iphone to the public...not any eyes blowing change...its only a 4s upgrraded by 4" screen....
Round corners with boxy design whats new 4" inch screen and stupid ios 6 with flashy animations and prisoned apps no NFC who will buy this
Hmmmmmph. Can't help greeting this with a big shrug and a 'meh'. No headline-grabbing killer feature here, and it more or less brings it level with the top Android phones.
Lacking the x-factor - the 4 had the amazing design, the 4s had Siri (for what that was worth) and this? Well this has...........um........well.........it's a bit thinner (but NOT the thinnest smartphone in the world, it's a bit lighter (others are even lighter) and it's a bit bigger (but not as big as others), so whilst I am sure it's an excellent phone, it won't tempt me to upgrade.
newspaper headlines: Apple releases more powerful and more beautiful iPhone 5!
Yep! more powerful indeed! more powerful than the iPhone 4s... but not as powerful as the Galaxy S3...
And the design? can't apple think of any other?
Round Corners With boxy design stupid flashy animations ios 6 sucks no NFC totally sucks with only 4.0 inch display.
this should have been iphone4S, nothing new as such.. agreed.. but ihaters.. still its best compared to galaxy s3 (mobile for color blind people) & other android phones (poor performace over the usuage time).
Sonythetop, 13 Sep 2012If you think Iphone5 not much better just go away :D........Why are you here? for what? or You... more@Sonythetop: Yes my current phone (Note) can't be like this rotten fruit 5, it is much much better than it.
nice iNnovation... they took that extremely durable glass out to reduce weight and thickness XD
the width of their 4, 4s & 5 was said to be the best for peolpe i.E. most comfortable to handle, hence the 'gain iN height only'.
well I seriously can't wait to see their excuse for making iT wider next time.
maybe they won't, maybe iT'll always grow iN legnth only?
iMagine iPhone 5s- same body as 5, 12mp upgrade, iMproved gpu & cpu version of A6 chip, iOs 7 and most iMportantly an over-hyped software. expected release date: xx/09/13.
now iMagine iPhone 6 with a 6 iNch long screen and the width remaining the same... come on, photoshop this so apple can use this for the design of their next big release iN two years time!
please note i'Ve already bought this patent and i'M gonna sue all iNdividuals (iN america only) who steel these iDeas from this comment, for the use thier own commennts.
all these comments about "plastics" making me sick. do you look at the back side of your phone or the screen, plastic my as*. what the f*** does that really meant to you anyway. you must be holding your phone backwards, with the screen facing down yeah? LOL
What a fail. It is definitely too narrow. Previous iPhones at least served as a mobilizing competition, now every Android flagship (SGS III, HTC One X, Sony Xperia T, Motorola RAZR MAXX HD) owns it in terms of both capabilities and design.
apple fail, 13 Sep 2012a flagship product. no sd card. tiny 4 inch tft screen. apple is so 2008.Wtf dude no sd slot? Why the lumia 920 doesnt have an sd slot.
Apart from the bigger screen (which was way overdue), there is nothing much that has changed. There is still no radio, still no memory card, still no proper multitasking, etc. There are other companies out there that have much more to offer. Samsung has the Galaxy III and the Note II, HTC has the One X and One S, Nokia has the Lumia 920 and Pureview 808, Heck! Even Motorola even has the RAZR HD and MAXX HD.
I'm actually disappointed with this latest announcement from Apple.
