I think the big issue of IP5 is in the DESIGN.
Apple KEPT 58.6 mm wide (stretched screen!) while other smartphones had > 60 mm width for about 4 inches screen.
I think it is not a suitable size for playing multimedia, left a big blank screen in scale zoom mode for instance.
Apple is simply going at its pace, just like MacBook and iMac, very minor external changes, where the changes are more internal and more for affecting performance and user experience. The iPhone 4S was such a smooth and fluid phone, imagine what double the speed will do.
Fact is, most of the bashing here has been without even SEEING the new iPhone in the flesh. Reports from ALL the hands-on reviews indicate very impressive build.
Also the iPhone new touch sensor and screen in one layer apparently makes the pixels look like they are on the glass as opposed to below it.
This is going to be a truly epic smartphone, the King of Smartphones.

Innovation? Apple?, 18 Sep 2012Of you course you don't know, because then you was a baby about 1-2 years old.
What innovat... moreOh in that case, why don't you also go 'ask' for patents at Patents R Us? Lol
Why don't you research how patents are applied for. Hahahaha this new troll is funny. Keep commenting though, and cut paste your comments too, the hits help push iPhone to the top of the daily hits hahaha
I liked the specs. People speaks about small screen. But I think its dimensions and weight are perfect for daily use and fit the normal pocket size. III and 920 are biggies and heavier for the hand and pocket. And of course these are for money people. They have their ways for using large phones. I just want to see these things alive.
iPhone 5 set to be the most popular consumer electronics launch ever:

Its so much prettier but apple has problem with its varities of iphone.. Android let users to choose what kind of android phone they like somehow iphone only release twice a year which is annoying... Im a iphone user and yeah, i can tell apple is a profit seeking company.. Even simple apps we have to pay while its free in android... Apple should make our life easier and economical...

AnonD-72081, 18 Sep 2012the a6 processor have a dual- core 1.02ghz 1gb of ram but outperforms the samsung galaxy siii... moreOf course 1601 bigger than 1723.
Samsung Galaxy S III
Samsung Exynos 4412 1400 MHz (4 cores) 1723
Asus Nexus 7
NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30L 1300 MHz (4 cores) 1610
Meanwhile, Geekbench is not reliable benchmark.
Samsung is a perfect example of a company that I must say, has gone from grass to grace! :-) And I'm very, very glad about that.
They now have a huge, full box of softwares and patent features to their credit: The Stylus for S Pen, Pop-Up-Play, Smart Stay, Smart Alert, S Beam, Direct Call, Best Photo, Tilt to Zoom, Palm Touch to Mute/Pause, Palm Swipe Capture, Turn Over to Mute, Shake to Update, to mention but a few; whereas Apple has barely Siri!
I grabbed my own box of the Galaxy S III on 5th September and I can swear to the fact that I haven't regretted buying it for one split second! :-P
Let's forget about the plastic body of course - it's rather disgraceful to Apple(I'm afraid) that a piece of cheap PLASTIC could offer more fun and features to its users than a so-called extraordinary piece of aluminum or glass or whatever.
