MdN, 14 Sep 2012But it's still a stretched 4S! Just not cool any more, looks like an experiment gone wrong. Th... morei kinda get the frustration caused by Apple keeping the familiar design, but then again, the design still looks good. they could've risked it by re-designing the device completely, but it could've also ended up being a failure (see SGS3).
but come on... it's 2X faster than 4S, and has larger and better screen. it's also thinner and lighter, even with the premium materials. i think it's a good update.
even with the old-ish design, it's the best looking phone out there.
Iphone 5 is the worst phone in the iphone series...I Think I'll skip this one and stick to my iphone 4s...since ios6 will be coming soon...apple has failed its fans for the first time...iphone 5 is boring zzzzzzzzz
this is my next handheld network computer,but its lenght has extended and breadth remain unchanged from 4s.
Is it right to called iphone 5 a Cucumber phone instead of Apple ha ha ha ha .....
why is it so long?????!! 3.5 was small and cute for us ladies, the iphone is a girls phone! why do they have to make it ugly! no nfc support and no wireless charging? whats the point of an A15 chip??? 30$ for an adapter for the charger??! the iphone 4S can do everything already. I was excited for this phone to come out, it turns out just to be a piece of bandwagon hyped junk. Anyway the fanboys will mindlessly buy it dont worry apple you will make your billions :) go isue!
proof that apple fans don't know anything about the product.
Dragon948, 13 Sep 2012No it's never Lumia 920 time and never will be. Theres no place for Nokia and the 920 is no co... moreI dont agree with your simply assessment of the Nokia 920. In fact if WP8 is as good as expected, it will cut into Android market share first and Apple second. Frankly I feel WP8 has the capability to be a game changer in the market place and can provide a genuine netbook replacement experience, that even a Note II cannot provide, let alone iPhone 5. Just wait guys and you will see the market turn by year end.
No matter what you say,I will be getting this phone now,this is yet the most interesting gadget in the market today,bye folks,I will order mine now.
Yeahh...i think i must buy an android phone...no special with this iphone 5.
argument abt processor is't worth. . . Becos dual core is enough if they R using it proper. . Abt design its just another apple4 . . .in ma view THEY HAVE TO RE-THINK ABOUT THIER DESIGNERS

Apple 4s is the last iphone for me (owned every model from the original to the 4s except the 4). They should have gone with micro USB instead of another custom connector, or at the very least used the existing connector so everyone's existing iphone/ipod/ipad add-on gear can still be used or micro USB gear could be used.
Also, tired of the BS with itunes when I try to sync music, contacts, video with multiple computers and multiple iphones (work computer, home Mac, work notebook) - how ignorant is Apple to think that one person would only have 1 iphone and not want the same contacts/music/videos synced on each? There's a better way Apple and your proprietary iCloud IS NOT IT (I have no problem syncing between multiple computers or phones when using my Samsung or HTC). Look to some of your competitor's solutions.
Speaking of Samsung...they'll be filing suit against Apple for LTE licensing infringement in the near future unless an agreement is reached out of court. Samsung wins this time around (Read up on the LTE patents Samsung holds before you make a stupid comment).
after the death of steave jobs, apple is just a toy making company. we expect more than this from iphone5 but it seems like a toy for kids. s3 and lumia920 is much better than iphone5. i suggest everyone to go for s3 or lumia920.
MdN, 14 Sep 2012But it's still a stretched 4S! Just not cool any more, looks like an experiment gone wrong. Th... moreLol which part of stretched iPhone 4S is bad? That's the weird thing. iPhone users love the size due to one handed operation, I would not buy the iPhone if they made the screen as big as SGS3. They have stretched it, but kept it usable with one hand.
And a stretched iPhone 4S? C'mon. It's now unibody aluminium instead of glass, it is lighter too. This means it's also a lot stronger. Similar? Certainly. But it is also better.
Apple still first company to use A15 in a chip others failed..
With the launch of iPhone 5 Apple has become the first mobile company to launch the ARM’s Cortex A15 CPU into the market. A very skilled person when it comes to semiconductors, Anand lal Shimpi of AnandTech, also gave his comments on the powerful CPU. He said,” Based on the performance gains, Apple’s history of SoC naming and some other stuff we’ve heard recently, it looks like Apple has integrated two ARM Cortex A15 cores on Samsung’s 32nm LP HK+MG process.” He further said that it is a very large jump for Apple while beating Samsung and Texas Instruments (TI) at the same time.
Apart from TI and Samsung, Nvidia and Broadcom was also in league to release A15s but have failed. All the four companies mentioned above had made a statement to release A15s in Exynos 5250 for Samsung, Tegra 4 (code-named Wayne) for Nvidia, a system-on-chip by Broadcom, TI’s OMAP5 application processor but Apple did it first. ARM’s two Cortex-A15 cores along with two mail GPU cores are expected to be present in Samsung’s Exynos 5.

Just not cool any more, looks like an experiment gone wrong. They could have increased the display and got rid of all the wasted space on top and bottom, but they didn't. Also that little dot above the loudspeaker (front camera?)is just a plain eye sore.
This Apple Iphone 5 only has a Dual Core processor. Branding cant live alone in the market if it is not combined with Perfomance and Speed. Apple wake up its possible you will loose the market if you doesnt use the proper technology.
There are actually some incredible facts regarding the iPhone 5 which hasn't sunk in to certain people yet who keep calling it a stretched iPhone 4S.
The phone is made out of metal yet it is lighter than the SGS3.
The phone is actually thinner than the SGS3 (I don't think people realize this yet)
The black version is beautiful with anodized aluminum and darkened side panels. It is actually the matte black phone that I've been wishing for, it just oozes dark knight. Reminds me of another beautiful phone, the black Lumia 800.
There are brilliant phones coming to the market now, but Samsung fans need to understand that the SGS3 is now boring and dinosaur because it is seriously being hammered by Lumia 920 with innovation, and Xperia TX for power, even before going head to head with iPhone 5 lol.
