And and and.... its got lte, better camera, better battery backup. And you say apple hasn't given you ANY reason to upgrade. Stop accusing apple and get real. Buy an iphone 4s in the first place and then you'll know what the upgrades are.

That's the problem that they compare the iphone 5 to the iphone 4s not the competition which already moved on long time ago! they keep saying we got all we asked for, really? even though all the competition had all that long long time ago but when the iPhone get it in YEARS it's all good? i hate biased reviews and i hope GSMARENA which by far my favorite site will had a decent review with real COMPARISON with the competition

Apple is exactly one year late, still Apple fans dare to say that they made it better... why don't you do a little research before saying such a thing? But no... Apple fans do not need to do it... they take for granted that Apple invents everything...

Besides its easier to make the illusion that you make things better when you wait for everyone else to invent it and then copy or steel it and say you innovated it or invented it.

Phone displays a grid to follow along, and notifies you if you move too quickly. As soon as you finish, the photo is ready.
