Absolutely disappointing.... with this, Apple loosing it all to Google and Nokia and Windows phones....
I must say, I'm really disappointed :(
I expected a quad core processor and NFC sharing but to have neither...it's a big let down on Apple's part. Apple has not done anything out of the box and instead delivered this clunker of soon-to-be-obsolete piece of technology. We all know that Apple is not the first in the race when it comes to hardware, but even so, there is a thing such as keeping up with times. In a time when not one, but multiple smartphones are offering quad cores, dual core seems a thing of yesterday. By opting for a dual core, Apple has set itself behind the clock by a year. Sure, the new phone is decent and will manage to sell among the Apple fanbase (most probably people with iPhone 3G or 3GS), but being the trend setter, iPhone 5 leaves a lot to be desired. As one of the biggest business empires, it wouldn't hurt to invest a little more in hardware, right? And not having NFC...that's a megaLOL...I mean, even Nokia, which is trying to catch up with times has NFC sharing on it's current flagship (just for the record, I was really impressed by Lumia 920. I didn't think Nokia had it left in them.) but for the latest iPhone to not have one...I'm speechless.
Of course, those die hard fans out there will say crap such as, "it's the software which matters, not the hardware." To them I say BITCH PLEASE. To have software and not hardware is like having the mental capability to do something, but get restricted due to physical limitations. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the casual Apple fans will switch over to Android (I am one of them). The only people who will this poor excuse for a next generation iPhone will be the hardcore fans and the technically challenged (i.e. those who don't know much about technological gadgets). In other words, iPhone 5 will sell only due to Apple's brand name. There is nothing extraordinary about this iPhone, apart from the fact that it is the latest iPhone.
One word to describe iPhone 5 : Predictable
The iPhone 5 is based off of technology that was present in Android and Windows Phone 7 devices released a year and a half ago. If you want a smart phone that is cross compatible with all platforms pickup an Android Device. If you want a great starter smart phone get a Windows Phone 7 device.
A6 is twice of A5 performance
no need to tell u that its quad processor
phone can't be touched by viruses looool is still the best even Apple didn't develop much
but not as expected
poor hadware iphone 5 have no hd scereen any only 4 inch i think lumia 920 wins
Whats happening? Is that INNOVATION? Better off dead for apple!
Time to use Lumia 920.
Pretty big let down. Apple is once again playing catchup to Android. They are feeling right at home in this position it seems. Sad because Apple could of hit a home run with this one but dropped the ball instead.
I have iphone 4 and if I am going to change it I will go to Nokia Lumia 920 for sure .
Code Name:Firstly Iphone 4, Furtherly 4S, Finally should be 4S+,instead . . . .Oh Apple!
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012There is no point bumping up clock speed while single core can run ios smoothly. screen size l... moreOh man! I dunno how many people on earth think the same like you do. 3.5 inch screen is enough, 8mp camera is enough, or probably design is good enough,......hahahaha that means no innovation at all! u are a very loyal fanboy! Apple should give you a new I-phone4ss, oh sorry I-Phone5.hahahaha
It's still dual core and not quad core, no java and radio, no card slot... not competitive with quad core smartphones...
Noone will buy iphone 5. Its just a small update over ip4s. Processor and screen resolution is increased. Ip4s is a good buy rather than wasting money on iphone 5. But i will be getting lumia 920.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012greatest fone ive ever used....u should all buy one right now! ;-)You're obviously a liar...greatest phone you ever used? when its not even out in the market yet until 092112? LIAR!
Take a look at all of the comments...majority are from apple fans who now hate apple for releasing such a disappointing iphone 5...it did not even have half of the rumored features that would have made it cool...no fingerprint unlock...no NFC...no 12 MP cam...still no radio...no real multi-tasking abilities...no quad-core processor...
it's basically just an iphone 4GS hahahahaha stupid piece of garbage! any brand's flagship can now dump on apple's face because apple is so far behind in technology! :P
i don't understand why apple talk about 2x faster, 2x faster in what?
that crappy os can process just one app :D
it's useless tu extend the cores or increase the performance, they should think about a new os
i am a samsung fan, but i really felt sad tonight for apple fans, what's this?
720p front facing camera? :)))))
that's the new feature?
never bite the hands feeding u punk
of course it'll sell millions, cuz there are million idiots out there,thats for sure
what happend to innovation?
same boring design
same shity camera sensor?
living like cavemen is different too
haha i knew it !! they not gonna come with something new on the market, its just simple and old technology but in a new shape...but its ok cuz thers lots of people out there that dont know that much about that, and smart people take advantage of that, and sell old dated products for lots of money :| good job apple!
as for me neahhhh...not impresed , im geting a nokia pureview
