If the phone can do all of the tasks that it was advertised to do then who cares how many cores it has? Tech should NEVER get in the way. It's all about the software, not the hardware... laggy quad core Android phones proved that!

I predict 15 million this month, when people really gets hands on with this beauty device they are going to be Wowed, when they hold the device.

I predict this is going to be best selling smartphone ever.

People who say this doesnt have any innovations, sgs and lumia 920 are better etc. Apple still have one which truly make them unique. They are only brand who still makes smaller smartphone, yeah i know theres some other small phones too but they doesnt have all the flagship features, so you dont feel good buying them when you know you dont get everything what flagship have. Apple offer flagship features in very small packet, thats the one big thing.

I dont understand why other brands doesnt make two different sIze phones with same specs. Im sure smaller sgs3 would be huge hit.

Don't know how they came up with that figure. The iPhone5 has no wow factor or feature that blows every thing else away. Apple has played the catch up game but hasn't done it well. Where's NFC, where's wireless charging, where is the "must have" factor? No doubt that it will sell, but 10 million in this month alone. NOPE!

It true..Appel will sell like hotpies around the world..because a lot of people are blinded by Appel brand and they think because it Appel mean its da best..here in India a lot of people do not know tech and specs on mobile so all they know is Apple..I order Samsung Note 2 and Moto Razr HD but alot of people tell me to buy Iphone 5..because it is Appel..they are ignoramus..

I was actually looking forward to this phone, it is the sort of size I've been considering (also been looking at the Sony Xperia P).However, I've as much as I admire some the inovative leaps they took with the iPhone 1-4 I deplore the cynical control of their products and the $1bn debarcle with Samsung has left me cold. It's like knowingly buying blood diamonds!!

I don't think so because there were a lot of people have waited for new iPhone 5 with some innovative features but the iPhone 5 totally lost this ground! Honestly A million of user would like to go with S3 or Lumia920.

Not really surprising lots of iphone users seen to purchase within a month of a new phone releasing.
