This is going to be huge hit, so thin and so light. Theres still millions of people who want smaller phone and apple really made that.
So well done apple good move, no doubt this is going to be best selling smartphone ever.
To be honest, untill now it doesn't look that bad.
As mentioned, apple hasn't announced all features for the iPhone. I hope they come with something new (Like in iOS5, even though the push-notifications system is stolen from android)!
And about the hardware: finally LTE support (Better late than never right?). The specs and performance about the CPU and GPU arent even released so how can we say something?
Yes, the SGS3 has a very impressive hardware and features, but you can't compare it to something that isn't released yet.
I'm not a apple fanboy(actually I prefer android over iOS), I'm just trying to be realistic.
Kyonkan, 12 Sep 2012Could you elaborate on "everyway"?The main point in my reply was "to me".
Just like you and the other 1000 people who love android will be on here tomorrow to tell me "their" opinion, the reality is people have different opinions. that means no one has to be wrong. Or right.
For example, I love the screen size not being too big? Am I wrong? No. Are you wrong to like a ginormous screen? No. I like the style of the iPhone OS is this bad? No, its very good. And that's it really. You think Android is awesome? That's great. I tried SGS2 and ONE X and didnt like it as much as what the iPhone does.
I can still see the point of Android though. Its the more complicated OS, with more customization, and everything can be had for free. I get it. Its good thing. I just like iOS better.
And the Android people just dont get all this.
Anyway, like what you like, I have my humble opinion, and you can have yours.
The iPhone 5 looks awesome, and to me, nothing will feel as nice to hold in your hand as this.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2012the only reason this will outsell the SG3 and some other phones is that there are a bunch of n... morei was actually contemplating the ip5 switching back to ios secretly hoping to ip5 would be awesome.. umm not no more.. so glad i didnt hold out for the ip5
its actually a little shocking how average the ip5 has turned out to be
there , iPhone 5 announced .. wow Apple am impressed you got there 4inch screen and a faster iPhone 4S ... yaay -_- S3 and ONE X still on top
the only reason this will outsell the SG3 and some other phones is that there are a bunch of non-tech savvy people who will buy anything Apple puts out. This phone could have been the worst phone of all time and people still would buy it.
When you look at the facts, this phone should not be above any of its competitors.
As expected,nothing new.Just copied some stuff from android(LTE,panorama mode,faster pic capturing,take pics while recording etc),added 0.5'' to the display,upgraded chip and improved camera.Still no sd slot,bluetooth or NFC.And now apple is gonna get sued primarily for using LTE.
"but the sensor is 25% smaller this time"
That's a degradation, not an improvement, smaller pixels are NEVER better.
Weight and size, especially thickness is good, as well as the the sapphire lens, but the price will probably be hefty.
All the same, just a bigger screean.. WOW.
Innovation! Quick lets get a patent on it!
Iphone, which was already loosing market share, will now have no good reasons to increase it, as price over features is always a thing to matter,no matter in which part of the world u live. As high end phones,already launched in the market,have all latest features already there,and iphone5 has not shown any out of the world thing, hence giants like samsung htc and strugglers will keep on eating market share. Time to learn lessons which nokia, at one point of time, also missed.
Ihype and Ilag Android .... A little improvement over the 4s however not good enough to beat the S3 not the galaxy note 2
Denzo, 12 Sep 2012So to elaborate, for those that actually want an iphone not just here this early to talk about... moreToo weird that, as you clearly just stated, all those are catching up features of the "all new" iPhone 5, but yet you said iPhone 4S was the one better than the SGS3. You didn't really elaborate on anything my friend.
