This is truly an achievement in engineering, really makes the s3 look like a childs toy! and as for operating system flaws dont get me started on android, I dont think I know of any android user who has not had their gmail hacked as a rsult of the poor security and exploitability' of android os/app market!

Well done apple, may ye hold yer head high as the true market leader in smartphone marketplace!

May all the haters enjoy their negative comments and childish jabs as everyone is entitled to their own opinion./....but in my opinion apple reigns supreme!!

I fail to understand the vitriol towards iPhone 5. I live in Sydney. The Police were controlling crowds outside the Apple Store today in George St. Yet, a short walk to another mobile phone outlet & I could check one outthe phone for whatever. I Have an iPhone 4. Not perfect depending on my "personal" needs but what phone is ? If you don't like it, don't buy it.

the iphone's specs arent as good as other phones. Name me an app or game that requires more that 1gz? apple make phones PERFECT for their specs. Whats the point of having an amazing processor if the phone crashes every other day? exactly. SSSHHHHH

People camping in front of stores are not very bright, are they?
I wouldn't camp for a thing that can be bought in 1 or 2 weeks time in less then 10 minutes. Especially for a mediocre device. And don't tell me it is not mediocre; a best in it's class is not for everybody (iPhone is; almost everybody has one).
It is ridiculous what this camping people do.

What a shame. Only a phone will come in that store not Jesus to overreact seeing him.

The iPhone is outdated. Even though it was released after the Galaxy SIII is completely inferior and anyone who says otherwise is doing the same as the ostrich burying its head in the ground and refusing to look around.

Samsung is probably the first contender but android in general is also a good choice! Tech is not only apple! Grow up!

So sad for the one who camped at the store now he knows the iPhone is useless and all his waiting was worth noting
