Wow... what a great innovation!!! they just the size of the screen and make it longer but the same width. except the screen and the IOS, its a copy of iphone 4s. well, congratulations apple for a great innovation. anyway, people still love your products even if its outdated and cannot compete with other brands. i think the Iphone 5 was designed by apple lawyers...

For me the iPad is the best tablet but the iphone is just too small on the screen size. Plus I dont feel like a need an iphone with my ipad because I can do pretty much everything and more on my ipad with a bigger and better screen.

I have iPad and not going to buy any other phone than iPhone, why would i, but im in good position cause i know iOS is best for me so i dont even want to change.
So i dont see any reason to buy android, also i see many reason to avoid fragmented android. Without iPhone i would choose wp7, it feels much more fresh, android for me is always cheap looking iOS copy.
Just choose what fits for you, every OS has their pros and cons. You saying android is superior doesnt make any sense, theres many reasons to not to buy android, like many see many reasons to not to buy iOS.

-no sd card slots. - Why do u need a card slot when u ca... more -no sd card slots, its not about how much you have built in its about portability, big bummer.
-no chance to remove battery, again if you run out of juice you can't use a spare battery, big bummer.
-small diaplay: Have you ever worn a one size fits all costume you'll know what it mean.
-no blutooth: bluetooth is there but its for namesake, not usable.
-all better apps in ios are paid: I don't really care abt apps so no comments, I only use weather, mail and browser.
-no flash support: I hate flash.
-no service: well very poor reception and very poor mic, big bummer,evrybody with whome I talk complains.
-use of itunes is necessary: bummer, I hate itunes, I haven't been able to copy to photos in 2 yrs, big bummer to user friendlyness. iPhone has more powerful hardware than a desktop sold 12 years ago but you need iTunes so that you can transfer data, are you kidding me?
-low resale value: well I don't really agree with this.
-poor performance than android: again one size fits all doesn't work with everybody.
I have been using iPhone but I can say that I'm only able to get 50% out of what the device is capable of, because of Apple's design. iTunes is not for user friendlyness it is their so that Apple can manage how they sell their stuff to you and control your phone.
At the end of the day, when it comes down to it. Android is open-source and fully tweak-able. Apple iOS is a self-contained propriety system which only works with Apple software.
Android is perfectly stable and just as secure, so what advantage does the iPhone have? Unless you want to be a douche and talk to Siri.
I'm not anti-Apple just not very impressed by Apple. For some younger people, I can see how they may be attracted. If you are not of that generation or otherwise unimpressed, then spending most of your hard-earned cash on what you think is a gimmick is not going to be top priority.
With that in mind, getting a virtual woody about the case in my mind is from the sublime to the ridiculous.
OMG apple innovation!!!!!!!!!!! Holly crapple u knocked it outta the park this time!!!! I mean come on crapple its a 4 year old design! ! Where is all this cool technology that you suposatlively have pattend???? Oh wait it has standard micro usb, bet 50they sue and came they thought of it first.
It just came: "Flurry Analytics today released a new report highlighting developer interest in iOS and Android as measured by downloads of Flurry's tools for integrating analytics into apps. With a new high of over 18,000 SDK downloads by developers during the first quarter of 2012, Flurry found that iOS continues to hold a substantial lead over Android with 69% of those downloads being for iOS."
"At the end of the day, developers run businesses, and businesses seek out markets where revenue opportunities are highest and the cost of building and distributing is lowest. In short, Android delivers less gain and more pain than iOS, which we believe is the key reason 7 out of every 10 apps built in the new economy are for iOS instead of Android."
Flurry also offers data on fragmentation within the Android ecosystem, illustrating how both multitude of devices and operating system versions leads to developers having to design their apps to be compatible with an increasingly complex variety of user setups.
So apple doesnt need to worry anything, if devs like iOS its going to sell a lot, its actually that simple.

-no sd card slots. - Why do u need a card slot when u can have 16/32/64 GB in the phone itself.
-no chance to remove battery. - Again are u going to cook food using ur phone's battery after removing it?
-small diaplay. - It's just right. Fits in pocket and hands comfortably unlike some other phones.
-no blutooth. - Get ur own data. iPhones do have Bluetooth by the way.
-all better apps in ios are paid. - Ever been to the App Store?
-no flash support. - Again, who needs flash when almost all content on the web now can be played on an iPhone?
-no service. - What do u mean no service? Where do you live, on Mars?
-use of itunes is necessary. - It helps in organising everything.
-low resale value. - Forget this one. Don't need to tell u that even today I can sell my 3GS for a good price.
-poor performance than android... - Again, do u understand what u r typing or r u typing stuff just for the sake of it????
I am an Apple user. Not a fan of any Company but Apple devices are easy and better to use than most others.
here come the BEST iphone yet, again, and again. and people will buy it again and again, throwing the extra money away. god bless apple for making our lives so much better. i don't know how my life would be without ipod and iphone, oh wait i don't have neither one and life has been great so far.
low resale value....
second hand price(Even After one months)-20-22,000/-!!!!!!!!!11
If this is a bit wider not only the length is changed. This is the best iPhone ever made by Apple. Nowadays, all phone devices are getting bigger, why not iPhone too. I think, holding a long size phone is ugly and the headset dock is placed at the bottom of the phone then more uglier than any other phone devices. Come on Apple have some big change on your device! A perfect change!!! Length is not enough to attract people. Many will stick with iPhone 4S.
oh what a load of crap this is.
anything by rotten apple stinks.
who wants to get mugged by these villains...
God , 07 Jun 2012The single and only reason I have NOT bought it .I'm not sure Apple will take business advice from someone who uses the word "Derz" to be honest, but every time Apple release a phone it's usually based on an old model. Each new iPhone is obsolete within 3-6 months because the Android manufacturers are in frenzied, constant competition with one another, while Apple sits on its backside making money from fanboys.
