The problem is "is it the best phone that 200$+50$*24m can buy?" and second to that there are questions like "is it the best experience?"; "is it the best OS?"; "is it the most confortable to use?" etc.

Just wait until november when we have all 3 major OS in flagships from most producers and then you can simply go in a store, try them all and decide for yourself :)

When the Apple users do what they are told, hard to
match that to start with.
Only Apple could create some fans that have involuntary bowel movements over the sheer excitement of a 5th row of icons during the press conference.

Respect Apple.

Elop said NO to lag and forced Closes, he was right.
years later and now ver 4.1, they're still working on it.

iPhone 5 is made of high quality aircraft graded aluminimum alloy and high quality glass.

Unlike SGS3 or L920, they are made of cheap plastic.

iPhone 5 is so nice to hold with your hand.

It is so beautiful crafted and make you more confident when communicating with people.

iPhone 5 is the best phone ever made by Apple.

If that 2 million figure isnt an imaginary figure (to promote business of iphone 5 beforehand) i wonder if those pre-orders are actually end users, since we all know that iPhone is a popular brand to me it seems like atleast half of those orders will be for self profit (i.e, buy it first hand and sell it to another with added profit). Just saying.

To all those people saying it has no innovation.. are they the same people saying the ability to use gloves with a phone is innovative? Oh yeah, cause I always wear gloves.

Try designing your own chip, and getting it to compete with a quad core phone, in a 7mm package.. yeah, too easy huh
