People... please stop bagging other phones.
Apple has good and bad points as does nokia, samsung etc.
What I like about apple is getting products on the market in 1 week.
I also like the fact the iphone 5 has DC HSDPA and 1800mhz LTE (for Australia). WHATS THE GO SAMSUNG!
I used iphones for 2 years and dont like the strict app controls, iTunes or the tiny (still) screen.
I currently have a Note and will upgrade to the Note 2 but understand there are many who prefer iphones or other.
They gave up a lot just to make this thinner and lighter. Is it necessary? Nobody ever said the older iphones were thick and heavy.
AnonD-70002, 13 Sep 2012same here..would laugh on the face of people who will use iphone 5 ;)Its funny how many haters are here.. I work for a phone company and 1/50 people ask for android ..everybody wants Iphone 5..guess thats why they're the richest company in the world... HaHaHa .. apples laughing all the way 2 the bank and they would probably be laughing at all u haters 2.

Notafanboy, 13 Sep 2012very "old" technology on a new body frame
come﻿ on apple, Samsung and ot... moreYou've clearly overlooked the software, specifically iOS 6 which puts the iPhone in a league of its own.
Too many people are focussed on specs. People claiming the Lumia 920 is the better option clearly do not value things like Apps as the Windows Store is practically vacant. iOS is where everything happens. Developers put most of their resources into the platform as that's where the userbase is and it's where the money is.
Plus the iPhone 5 looks a premium piece of tech. Nearly all Android phones look and feel cheap.

come﻿ on apple, Samsung and other companies are simply putting you guys on shame
I see no innovation or "new" technology on your iPhone 5
People should stop talking nonsense here pls. Enough of all these iphone 5 criticism cos none of you have ever manufactured a single phone component in your lives. I don't use iphone, an xperia/sony fan but I can't paint a phone black whereas i know nothing much about it. What were u people expecting anyway? A flying iphone 5 that converts to a robot? Respect your selves. LONG LIVE PLAY, LONG LIVE SONY.
Apple is great for integration. Its experience is still superior to most, however, with WP8 one cant help feel it will chew into the Android market big time and to a lesser extent the iPhone market. Apple risks coming across as a follower, not a leader. It needs to add more to its software in particular. Forget about the synthetic benchmarks. They are a waste of time in any case and look at the experience.
AnonD-8044, 13 Sep 2012And as consistently smooth all the time consistently.Thats because multitasking is almost non existant on iphone. Easy to stay smooth when you only one run task at a time.
The black one looks so much like the Xperia T att version. Sony should sue apple.

I'm sure that you cannot distinguish iphone from any other high end android phones or WP if you do blind test.
So Iphone 5 is not the best on the market like we expected.
1 Sony Xperia v IP57 certified - dust and water resistant
2 Sony Xperia ION
3 Samsung Galaxy S3
4 Htx One X
5 Apple Iphone 5
