After watching the first clip I now know why Apple has such eager fanboys that would do anything for their favorite corporation.
If you enter the istore you feel like a superstar!
Of course your reaction would be something like this:
A: "We just got the newest iPhone, which has these revolutionary features..."
You: "Just shut up and take my money!"
:D
The curel reality is that you paid for an overpriced product that is inferior to other similar products.
Granted it has some bright points and is super smooth, but that doesn't justify its somewhat high price.
My personal note is iPhone 5 is 5-10% worse than SGS3.
Now you be the judge which is better for the buck based on prices for your local area (prices may vary that's why I didn't include them).

Been looking forward to the ios6 maps but when I heard the term 'icloud', I didn't expect some cities to look like an actual cloud!
Was looking at Nottingham (UK) and couldn't see much of the city itself unfortunately; however Im sure that it is in there somewhere.

Nokia and google kicks apples maps in map apps iphone and ipad owners who installed ios6 this week found out just how much behind apple is and apple user have discovered missing streets,misslabeled streets,mislabeled points of interest and missing towns the level of detail available in apple maps simply doesn't come close to matchin nokia maps/drive and google maps.

I5 is even less of an upgrade from I4S inn comparison. Again good phone, but are you seriously going to notice the difference...especially after you upgrade your I4S to IOS6?
