All good if you live in Australia as launch day was an iFlop. All retailers (including my own have over 80 unsold handsets from Friday.

Just saying it is just a phone and who cares if you get it one or two days later. The world won't end if you don't have the minute it comes out.
why que for such a ordinary overpriced phone which is going to be obsolete within a few months.
Holy CRAP guys. Most of you obiviously do not understand the power that Iphone 5s has recently aquired. I just read about it on wikipedia. Believe me, you DO NOT want to see Iphone 5s on antutu. It could crush all of the samsung, lg and everything else. The gpu is out of the league. We are talking about the 6 class POWER VR GPU! Not to mention 64 bit CPU which is only, ONLY 1,3 Ghz but crushes everything around it ...

Why are there Android phones with 2.8" screens?
The iPhone screen makes it just right for using with one hand and due to the OS's better power management Apple don't need to hide a big battery behind a giant screen.
I remember when the iPhone first came out, all the whiners were saying the screen was too large, how times have changed since Samsung started their photocopiers.
I got a 64bit phone, you don't, too bad.

The 5s, with it's dual core CPU, is better than any quad core phone out today. Take a look at AnandTech's review of the 5s.
AnonD-173717, 20 Sep 2013Specs? You are blinded by specs.. http://bgr.com/2013/09/19/iphone-5s-benchmarks-performance-tests/You do realize those were all browser benchmarks and the article you pointed to has an incredible amount of fanboysm attached to it right? Apple has a better optimized benchmark agree. This doesn't make it a faster/better phone...The screen is way too damn small. Apple has bad strategy. They won't convert android users with high end devices like this. When you go 4.5 inches or more you really can't go back to a tiny 4inch screen. While you can go no problem from a i5 to a high end android. This means people will generally switch only one-way: iphone->Android. This is why apple is losing share
Low supply??? Oh come on apple 4 god sake change ur cheap strategy at least once!!!

the verse thing about this phone is " it is the same priviuos model of iphone , i dont know the tech is go far behind this. then y apple sucks. he think he is the king of mobile and nokia does same mistake, google always try to new.
People have been brainwashed for far too long with the Apple hype. No USB slot, no SD card slot, no chance of replacing the battery and they queue up for days on end.
Sad, deluded creatures!
Seems cheap, but not in europe.
In europe we always get that devices, with a overpcice.
In spain, the cost of iphone 5 right now, its 600 €, and with contract will be the same. Actually the companys on Spain, always sell the phone by the full price with 24 month contract so, i dont mind about cheap.

no company oblige to sell cheaply because nobody oblige to buy their product
try and make an iphone yourself and sell it cheaper than Apple,just make sure don't come out with 6 years old electronic project and say its an iphone
