Regardless of the specs the 5s will still have a line up and people will still purchase because its the next big apple device out. The 5c is going to cater to a different audience mid range market which andriod dominates now, in the end of the war there will only be 3 left standing Apple, Samgsung, LG and a possible fourth which is Googles only nexus phone from either Sammy or LG or there recently purchased Moto. Its how its going to be. To the person who said there going to turn into Nokia is sniffing glue Nokia is phone oriented while apple is music, tablet, laptops, desktops, tv's, routers, hardrives etc it is the same as LG it does not matter regardless on if a product tanks the other departments pick up the slack for the year and still generate revenue, there will always be an iphone release everyyear as the same for Samsung and LG because they can.

Iphone is price so high, people who is spec concern will feel it is outspec they want their money worth their spent. That is the idea.

Surley no one is going to sign up to a 2 year contract for this, it's the same fone in last 3 years, everyone I know is bored to death now with ifone, it's the same it's got to be a prank if this is the new ifone it's the only shock this fone will give me as the specs are really not great I'm laughing my head off posting this as some people will sign up to a 2 year contract for it

apple's latest processor in iPhone 5 was based on the cortex a15 architecture and hence despite being only a dual core, it surpassed galaxy s3 in processing power which was a quad core cortex a9. You can see the geekbench scores to verify that. Also Apple provides the phone with a great gpu which makes the games run smoothly. and the ios is properly optimised for these 'low spec' phones which makes the phone run lag free.

Don't think me and an apple fan. I own a galaxy s4 and I am more than happy with it. You can check it by opening the user opinion page of galaxy s4 on gsmarena.com. I have a lot of comments there.

consider another example. galaxy s4 i9500 has just 1.6 ghz quad core processor that handles heavy processes and a 1.2 ghz quad to handle small processes. but the 1.6 ghz quad are of almost 3 to 4 times more powerful than the 1.2 ghz quad. why???? due to the powerful cortex a15 in it.

also in cpu benchmarks, these 1.6 ghz quad are almost equal to that of snapdragon 800 with 2.2 ghz quad core krait 400. I said only cpu. gpu is a different story though.

But the pt is some people feels outspec with that dual core while they are paying so much for that phone. As for smaller screen anything lesser than 5 is not going to be a useful comfortable phone. No stylus ppl will switch to note 3.

regardless of what other people will say about IPhone, it will still sell millions at least for this next iteration, (can't say for what is after IPhone 5S though and I'm just basing it on its selling level right now), and that is coming from an android fan like me.

Wow it looks same as ifone 5 lol rip I fone really won't miss you. Can't see people waiting for this I think people will have given up and already upgraded to something else. 0 2 and vodafone launch 4g 29th august and no ifone that's out now will work on there 4 g networks so obsolete, at least that many people fell for the apple hype at least 4 g won't be crowded as ifone 3 4 and 5 won't work on them lol they are trying so hard to rush ifone 5 s out but no one is that bother anymore can't believe apple are launching a fone that's not changed in three years, everyone I know are going to android and in Russia fone carrier s have ditched the ifone they had enough of apple saying you must do this do that and must buy this many units from us lol as if, on TV the other night it showed ifones been made and they cost 54 pounds to make but sell for 500 pounds plus if you need a new screen which you will if you own an ifone apple charge 140 pounds for a new screen but whole fone costs them 4o little to make, ifones are on the decline in Europe only place they are gaining is in the usa lol and they are told over there ifone is 4 g Yeh right they forgot to tell thm 4 g in America only as when you go to Europe it will only be 3 g and that's when it holds on to a signal as every one knows ifones are sloppy at holding onto a signal, so just saying wake up and don't believe the hype Steve jobs is very missed,

And what I the point for bigger processor and ram for if the current can do the job well and surpass some of the android flagship with quad core..do you ever own an iphone to make such a comment or you just simply don't understand why they fit bigger hardware on android
