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
great ! we dont have 4g 800mhz on gsm !
it will break it's own records in Sales... No matter what other brands fan shitting about it
i MEAN it...because not in every aspect but some how it is improvement over previous one okay "full stop" and shut up call to all sam,moto,nokia fans...bye

I'm surprised they kept the edge-to-edge glass.
I call it easy-to-break glass.
How hard is it to smash the phone when the glass is almost protruding out of its casing? iPhone 4 / 4S was one of the most broken phones in terms of percentage of cracked screens thanks to the easily cracked glass, even from regular height drops.
Apple needs to reinstate the much more impact-resistant iPhone / 2G / 3G / 3GS design, it is irrational to build a phone that breaks with occasional drops, it's like blackmailing people into buying thicker phone covers and bumpers.
Which defeats the purpose of the thin phone.
