Apple is a walkn dead company....this so called iphone5 is just another version of iphone4s with lesser features. I cannot believe it didn't come with features like nfc,radio,no YouTube,crap battery, no Picasa integration, no predictive text input swipe, no java, no simultaneous hd video and image recording and am yet to confirm if it's quadcore....it's worse Dan crap. Total waste of money. I'll go for S3
This phone arrives 19 months late. It is even worse than the SG SII, the litlle brother of Samsung. Have a look to the specifications:
Unless and untill you don't own an iphone....you are so noob to criticize it....wtf is NFC? Why shud we bother abt that? Wireless charging? That's not wireless charging...just an illusion....dare not to compare any phone with iPhone....even iPhone 4 is better than sg2
Not bad at all. But the main disadvantage is battery life. It is really shame. You always have to bare in mind where did you put your charger last time. The only disadvantage for me, but it is very important. If the battery could last for at leats 4 days on average use, I would buy it in that case.
it's not even water proof!.. sorry Apple, its never going to work out.
The upgrades that were included are honestly expected out of any company releasing a new phone. Obviously apple designs nice stuff. However, with the iphone 5 there was no wow factor. Its the same old phone with an elongated screen. Yes i do understand that the processor was upgraded, but let's be realistic here, none of your apps needs that much computing power.
All in all good phone, not great.
disappointing launch....had high expectations .... samsung will surely capture the mkt now :(
Apple is going down. 3-4 years from now, let's see. They're sueing every other company, claming that they're the MOST INNOVATIVE company in the world. But in fact, they're nothing, but a dead walking premium company.
I don't get it. Why would Apple put a product launch a product and not give the most important info for customers: CPU power, RAM graphics, battery. Twice the cpu power, faster graphics, more battery life is just marketing trash. How can I preorder a phone that I know nothing about. I'll just take Apple's word for it? Like they said about the 4S battery... 200 hours standby? The 4S was a big dissapointment for me. The Iphone 5 has 225 hours. So that means 36-48 hours max. I believed the hype. Not anymore!!!
Based on this latest blunder called the iPhone 5 I can see a reversal of iPhones fortune. And to have the arrogance making millions of poor buyers who don't know better wait for what is considered today your average high end phone.
AnonD-9587, 13 Sep 2012Samsung still the best ANDROID manufacturer of smartphone! Biggest global marketshare overtook... moreyeah,that's because there are hundreds of android out there against only one from iPhone and very few windows phone.
the best iphone yet, ppl who say that SAMSUNG is better, just do one thing, go the apple website and see the innovations done and then comment...
Woooooooowwwwwww! A 4inch screen? Sooo 2010! Talk about Apple INNOVATION! hehehe...
AnonD-26452, 13 Sep 2012Guys cm'on how can you criticize a phone without even using it? I can guarantee 90% of people... moreJust the fact that they are using the same design and specs that are in line or lower with the specs available in other mobiles is a killer for me. The iPhone 4s I stopped using months ago as besides being small the specs were outdated. How can you say the iPhone is amazing when you have the lumia 920 and galaxy s3. but hey I guess everyone is entitled to his opinion.
