Inferior resolution(not HD),small display,no Bluetooth file transfer,no true multitasking,no nfc,no fm radio.Still this device sold in millions because of just build quality(though aluminium case is easily scratcheble),.

AnonD-56991, 13 Oct 2012You not one of those that calls every phone not made by Apple a plastic copy are you? Because ... moreHe has been calling all non Apple phones plastic copies long time ago and must had written "plastic copies" here a million times.
But it's funny to think how a rectangle with rounded corners been granted patent for Apple. Those people at USPTO must had not seen a rectangle with rounded corners before. This geometric shape with rounded corners has been around since the dawn of civilization so how come they did not even realize this prior art existed long before.
I think iPhone 4s looks better than this iPhone 5 that looks like a brick. A rectangle with rounded corners and all sides chamfered. Looks totally boring.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2012No it is a plastic copyYou not one of those that calls every phone not made by Apple a plastic copy are you? Because people like that are very sad.
And if you are one of those people then by the same logic every 4 wheeled car must be a Metal copy of a Mercedes Benz, or every phone is just ripping off Alexander Graham Bell.
With millions of units shipped, and demand significantly outstripping supply, the initial launch of the iPhone 5 can probably be described as successful. Ad tracking firm has released some data comparing iPhone 5 mobile ad impressions to those from the Galaxy S III, a popular Android phone released by Samsung.
According to the firm, the three-week old iPhone 5 saw significantly more web traffic than the Galaxy S III, a phone that has been out for months.
lawlee, 13 Oct 2012"look at iphone5 battery capacity. Excuse me but 1440mAh is not enough. good luck" ... morePeople who take more than a second to think actually do care though because standby and talk time are fairly pathetic compared to other Smartphones and that really is a big deal, but it is a fact that Apple were so obsessed in making the phone as thin as possible they seriously compromised it for people who actually want to use a Smartphone the way they meant to be used.

just jail break the iphone5 u get android and ios. Worth the risk, cause your iphone5 has a 0.01 percent chance of needing some sort of warranty service.
[deleted post]These Chinese factories just make phones exactly the way and quality they told to do.
I mean it's like the saying "You don't get bad Dogs just bad owners"
So if any phone's made bad you blame Apple, Samsung, Motorola or whatever for not designing them properly.
