Thank GAWD I didn't bother buying iPhone 5. After all the hands-on posted here on GSMArena.com, it was really a good move. I saved up quite a large sum, no I can obviously buy an iPhone 5S (or maybe wait for 6) -- have it unlocked, and at 64GB -- a few extra for an iPad and a Sony XPERIA Z.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

Sorry Tim Cook, you just suck like your friggin iPhone 5. I'm better off with other future versions of iPhone. :P

Side-loading of apps and games, better camera, more connectivity options (HDMI, Composite, FM Transmitter) without the need for adaptors. Also has the best maps.

If you want more proof of comparisons i can dig much deeper into this realm, suggesting the fact that the iphone`s placement of there camera and flash appear to be in the same spot as the Lg prada...hmm

Hey Apple where are the carefully planted rumors... the supposedly "leaked" photos... Apple fans waiting for the Apple marketing routine to begin. :-)

Quite a show last year with the 5! Even the flaky chassis and Apple map errors were quite entertaining.

Fast forward 3 years later, most of my colleagues that had one are now branching out to see what else is out there, Apple is it owns worst enemy, because it`s iphone is what it is an iphone, the company is far to scare to release more then it`s original design changes, with a few tweaks here and there. Unlike Samsung,LG,Sony,Motorola,etc that release several different kind of phones per year, ones with different shapes and sizes, ones with full physical keyboards, some rugged designed to take a beating, some with insane 30 plus pixel camera`s. What you see now is company whose stock is starting to dwindle..and that is because there market is saturated, this is simple economics supply and demand is clearly showing here. The projected sales for there current 5s haven`t been met, It`s hard to say any differently of what we would do, where not in there shoes and were not Tim Cook, but believe me apple stock holders that are offered to the public through direct investing are feeling the squeeze. I have seen driods, and there new course is to penetrate into the 5inch relm, I personally feel that this is to much, 4.8 was suffice for me, but the demand for phones such as the Note 1 and 2 show that what the consumer wants right now. Surely Apple will follow suit, the only issue with this is the app store which house millions of apps is not even close to be current with the screen resoultion, most apps are still shapped to the 4 and 4s, and a couple of coders just don`t care to switch it. What does this say about a great app store.. I have ranted enough, if any apple geniuses are reading this.. Send a tweet over to Tim and tell him to fix what he has first before moving on.

Omg... Omg they're going to have fingerprint sensor... Well that's new..... NOT HENCE FAILED... SHITE! 13mp Sony sensor jeez so what... I rather buy the pure view phones if we're just bragging about camera use here or real Sony phone (because it's obvious it's the camera that carries the asset for ur phone model). Just keep working apple. still behind for those enthusiast users.......I wonder if they're going to name it

The new iPhone is also rumored to feature a fingerprint scanner, which is based on the Authentec technology acquired by Apple last summer.

Did Apple acquired the so called finger print technology from Motorola? As Motorola used such technology on its Atrix 1 smartphone which was released almost 2 years ago.
