the n8 and the iphone 4 cost the same at $197
galaxy sII skyrocket costs $244 and th galaxy note 10.1 costs $283

Anonymous, 14 Sep 2012nice phone but it is so expensive and not suitable for many countries because of nano simcard.... moreExpensive?.. Rubbish. All other toppmodels from Samsung and HTC is equally as expensive as Apple now.

Do not compare plastic knockoffs that are not up to it please.

By that logic there's no reason Humans shouldn't still be living in caves.
tanvir, 14 Sep 2012less features than galaxy s3. it is waste of 100 dollars. go for s3. it is bestIllegal plastic knockoff

Anonymous, 14 Sep 2012Apple's new A6 chip is a dual core ARM Cortex A15 CPU with quad core GPU. http://appleinsid... moreThe a15 uses virtually exactly the same architecture as the qualcomm s4.. they have been out for months now!!
Width of 58.6 mm is below my expectation, while other smartphones > 60 mm at about 4 inch screen!
I think it is not a suitable size for playing multimedia (e.g. left a lot blank space in scale zoom mode)..
Go and buy one instead of talking nonsense about iPhone 5 , what do you expect from apple to do miracle for you blind , when apple announced the new phone as iPhone 5 means better than last version . If something innovative from apple ,they call it new iPhone ,
At end I love my iPhone I do every thing with my phone , I hated iPhone because of price so bought HTC , nokia , just can say waste , I started from iPad , now I am on ipad3 and 4s, retina MBP , I am just like every one , ordinary person , and now if I can afford I definitely grab ip5

Does anyone knows when the contract free iphone 5 will be available in the US?
We cannot deny that there are handsets on the market with much greater spec than the I phone 5. However we must realise that apple is a giant as a manufacturer and their large prices are generally a result of buying into the brand rather than the product. Much like a weekly shop in Tescos would be considerably cheaper than Marks & Sparks. Granted there doesnt seem to be much difference in spec between the 5 and 4S, other than a handful of perks, however "if its not broken why fix it?".
