I am disappointed in the hardware the aluminium unibody was the logical next move and I like that however just making the device longer just doesn't satisfy a 4 year wait speakers look nice but why would you move the earphone socket to the bottom, illogical I seriously wouldn't see the need to upgrade from a 4s there just isn't that much of a difference for such a long wait its unfair to the customers
What on earth is this?
Been with apple for a few years, but it ends now.
A big let down AGAIN, have they no ideas left, iPhone 4 was ahead of its time then 4s was a let down then this is well enough comments to show what most people think.
Apple you should walk with your head down and be ashamed of yourself.
i heard and read about all specification ofiphone5 model, fm radio and memory card slot not available, i think it should be............
Parker., 13 Sep 2012The S3's actually made of Polycarbonate which is the best material for a phone because of flex... moreSo it's bad that if the iPhone falls on the aluminium part, gets the shock absorbed by the whole body and gets a dent is worse than if you drop the S3 on polycarbonate (aka PLASTIC) and breaks in two?
I have had many phones,nokias,Sony ericcsons,iPhones and samsungs,I have used windows and Symbian and android and iOS operating systems,I have to admit I was looking forward to iPhone 5 pulling all the tricks out the bag and the big drum roll went off like a damp squib !! I really don't understand why people are quoting apples share prices as wait until this time next year then we will see the truth,the only reason apple does so well at selling phones is because people have spent so much on iTunes and are tied in,also an overclocked A6 processor in a aluminium case??? That's one hell of a hand warmer come portable toaster :-) sorry I am diss appointed with the i5 and shall be looking at Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or something with much better specs than the i5 which they could have released last year rather than the 4s,poor old Steve jobs what a way to ruin a mans legacy :-(
Mike, 13 Sep 2012The iPhone is a device made for people that want a quality product. Galaxy S3 might be better ... moreThe S3's actually made of Polycarbonate which is the best material for a phone because of flexibility and lightweight, where Aluminium just dents and sends the impact force from any drop straight through to the rest of the phone, so you should just never assume a more expensive material actually makes a better phone.
what is special in this cell.. i don't think so iphne 5 deserve so much interest that is given by all type of media.. so much price for nothing. what the hell is this.. this is totally madness... gs3, lg, htc, xepria all this much much better then this stupid

The iPhone is a device made for people that want a quality product. Galaxy S3 might be better in some aspects, but it's made of plastic. Hold an iPhone, you'll see the quality of the product as you touch it, touch an S3 and you will feel like breaking it if you sqeeze it too tight. Also, the camera on the iPhone beats everything I've ever put my hands on. From the moment 3GS came out and Sony Erricson didn't came with a better product with a better camera (imho they were the only competition apple had when it came to cameras). iPhone lover or not, I respect a good quality product. Yes, you are limited, you may not find youtube videos as you would on an S3 because they want you to buy it from iTunes, they don't allow you to exchange information via bluetooth and they want you to buy all their products on applestore (if you're not jailbroken like me). But I would still choose it over an S3. The only thing I missed with the previous iPhones is that they were lacking behind with the display size. And be honest, you can't say that apple couldn't have made a bigger display 3 years ago. The only reason for keeping the size of the display smaller is because Steve Jobs considered that a mobile phone should have some dimension limits, and I think that if he would still be alive now, he would have modified the 4S to have a bigger display without making the phone bigger. I had a Galaxy Nexus for 1 week. I could not wear tight jeans, and generally I could take it out of my pocket if I wasn't standing up. I don't want to mention if I had a Galaxy Note how would that be. Retina display is an extaordinary feature that Apple fist came up with. The quality and volume of the iPhone is only compared with an iPod or another Apple product, and I heard a lot of phones and devices. iOS is a very friendly os. The map was better than most smartphones even before, I am very curious how this one will be. You can hate as much as you want. I consider this product being something I will enjoy and not feel sorry if I buy.
My 2 cents
I heard of a new apple iphone releasing in march as a limited edition for the memory of steve jobs.. due to some of the new patents apple can aquire in early 2013 but i think the specs will be slightly less ( camera no 4g) but they should include something special and groundbreaking--- this has come from a close friend working with a company who deals with mobile infrared devices. new iphone is good though but 4s users shouldnt upgrade
The iphone 5 is the only product by apple that I am ashamed of...all other products of apple are superior in their respective fields...the new iphone is no big innovation like its predecessors...This apple fan is miserably disatisfied :C
