iphone presentations used to be exciting, and always had the WOW factor...back when steve jobs was still alive...but most of the apple fans here (aside from blind duds like, mr steele) are afraid to admit that apple failed us fans...htey failed in the design and made it ugly by stretching the screen...did NOT do any REAL innovation...aside from copy panorama and LTE from HTC and Samsung, etc...and they did not live up to the promise that iphone 5 will be the best smartphone of 2012...my iphone 4s is a much more beautiful device because its screen is balanced...but I am not afraid to admit that apple under Tim Cooks leadership is going downhill with the iphone 5
Well I grounded my iphone 4 (gave to wife ) and ipad 2 (gave to daughter) and bought tab 7.7. which served both purpose. I was waiting for the iPhone 5 so that I could go back to more stabler OS with significant hardware upgrade. but this release of iphone 5 was like another incremental similar to 4S only thing good here is the slight bigger screen still smaller then the enter level of 4.3 which has become a norm. The processor is powerful but I think iPhone 4S processor was more then good for this iOS. Atleast they should have changed the shape and not look like hammered 4S to make it longer. Very boring design. The Nokia 920 release looks more exciting then this. Now I will hold for few months to decide between Window or iOS. Need to move away from Andriod as it is fragmented took ages to get ICS and no chance of getting Jelly bin.
attn:ricky steele...............check this out and compare it with the apple a6....http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=cpu&id=a5250&c=samsung_exynos_5_dual_5250

Can iphone 5 do REAL MULTI TASKING, such as...play a saved video file, play an HD or 3D game, and or browse the video at the same time? ah! um! ehh! umm..haha I'll answer it for you! I went to the Apple Convention in CA and got a hands-on experience on the the iphone 5...and I CAN TELL EVERYONE HERE! IPHONE 5 CANNOT DO REAL MULTI-TASKING! Its not much different from my iphone 4s...so YOU MEAN to say that what you claim to be the #1 smartphone in the world CANNOT DO MULTI-TASKING? hahahahahaha! all the world is now laughing at iphone 5!

seriously apple are all about there money, its funny how everyone wants a iphone just because of the brand name - (keeping up with the jonas) my advice would be go android all the way because there are better phones on the market that will do better things but keep your bills nice and controlled if your on pay monthly! Android all the way stop getting ripped of people!! jhhhheeeezee!!

Parker., 15 Sep 2012I know it's truly astonishing how narrow minded he is and how he's convinced Apple are perfect... morenope. once upon a time, iphone 4 was fresh, i was imagining, i wish apple start doing automotive industry. you got what i mean, i used iphone. it was perfect. they have the technology, but this is not a good policy enough.. wish you got.
bappy, 15 Sep 2012iphone5 is the fastest phone in the world now....its apps are awesome...and it works faster th... moreand you just came back from future to make such statement that IP5 is going to be the fatest?

Just give it a few more days and you'll realise it's completely impossible to have an intelligent discussion with him. And he once called me a terrorist because I disagreed with him and said I should be reported to the FBI.
[deleted post]remember nokia, and imagine the apple mobile's future...
and, my comments limited with your brains imagine, now im sure ;) be polite.
A massive let down, there is a few phones already better and more powerful than this.Yet apple still want to charge ridiculous amounts.
In early benchmarks performed by tech sites such as AnandTech and PCMag, the S4 Pro, despite being clocked at the same 1.5GHz, smokes every competitor — except the iPad 3′s A5X. In graphics benchmarks, the new Adreno 320 GPU is twice as fast as its predecessor, the Adreno 225 (found in the S4 Plus). The Adreno 320 still loses out to the A5X’s quad-core PowerVR SGX 543MP4 in most benchmarks, but it beats Tegra 3 and Exynos 4 (Mali 400) comfortably.
The dual-core S4 was already giving the quad-core Tegra 3 and Samsung Exynos 4 chips a run for their money — and now, with four cores and the Adreno 320 GPU, Nvidia and Samsung have been left in the dust. For the most part, this is entirely down to the fact that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 uses the Cortex-A15-esque Krait core, which is miles ahead of the Cortex-A9 core used by every other ARM smartphone SoC on the market.
So, when Apple A5X-processor matches the quad-core Snapdragon S4, now the A6 with ARM cortex A15 architecture will leave everything else in the dust.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2012It islol u guys crack me up..
Gsma article titled 'Apple says iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world, turns out it isn’t'...
Processor: why would you care the number of cores, architecture, etc if it just works with no lag? I hope you don't buy a phone just to run benchmarks.
RAM: The way IOS implements multitasking by suspending apps, not as much ram is required. Android offers multitasking with the apps actually running, so more RAM. So why it all depends on the OS. (ie, why Microsoft Windows requires much higher spec than Linux? They're just different)
Size: If you just want it big, why do you think Galaxy note is too big? I do like being able to do things single-handedly. If size is everything, don't use a phone, use a galaxy tab.
Screen: I hope you're not buying a phone just to stare at the screen for pixels. They're all good.
Design: Everybody knows it's really subjective here . No phone is really ugly, just to you, perhaps.
Apps: This one Apple does win. Even the same apps are better designed for iOS than Android.
Openess: this one Android wins. Why jail the phone? If I want to save files to my device, just let me do so. I love Android this way.
Again, the point is, don't defend your phone with your life before trying the others. Every phone has goods and bads. I don't believe iPhone or SG3 is the best on the planet. If you think otherwise, you're jailed by yourself and need to be jail broken.
So, be open and be nice.
