And then y now day laptop with battery nid higher ram if maker already know more ram will cause more power consumption?
Apple = LV? As far as I am concerned, you will not impress anyone with any iPhone..... Nobody cares about phones.... I have SGS3 and nice collection of PANERAI watches......... And if I wanted to impress anyone I guess I would have way better chance to do so ;-)
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2012at least they get update not like Endroid end up with middle finger in their asses iPhone ... moreyou are a victim of marketing and your own ignorance. If you need to compare prices stick to the unlocked off contract device. iProducts are par or less expensive only in the mind of their customers

It looks like apple made small become new big.
I have waited this moment and now it looks more real than ever before.
This device is going to sell so much, it feels like everyone loves it. People who comes from lumia, symbian and sgs3 and note and devices like that saying new iPhone 5 is great.
Epic Fail for the fifth time Apple

iPhone 4 contract free / iPhone 4S 99$ ... U Cant afford this??
Hmmm worse quality sound than the 4S that's a deal-breaker for me. Bottom line if u have the 4S and music is important don't upgrade.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2012I know it's off topic, but if you think the N9 is a phone for girls and the like, please visit... moreTrue. I still think iP5 is the best looking phone by far. Im glad the screen is 4 inches, any bigger than that would be nonsense. For me anyways!
SOLIDSNAKE, 30 Sep 2012Apple = Louis Vuitton
People get Apple products solely for the brand name. PERIOD!
I'm n... moreApple = Louis Vuitton???... LOL
Millions of people carry iphones with them but certainly not in Louis Vuittons bags. Apple is a mass consuming brand, which Louis Vuitton is not. Go and compare prices... Also, there are no hysterical queues of people pushing and insulting each other in front of LV shops, this would ruin the exclusivity of the brand.
Owning a phone or a computer in the year 2012 is nothing special, unless you had a difficult childhood, then maybe... Hope not though :)
the taller improvement is a joke! It looks way stretched just like LG Chocolate BL40. Widescreen but doesn't look appealing. They should made it a bit wider.

I'm not a fanboy but I love spending money on nicer brands. Heck I have a Blackberry Porsche Design as my secondary phone at the moment. When people try out my phone and compare it with the BB 9900, they all say it's no different. BUT they fail to see its the BRAND.
When I walk into a business meeting all over the globe and slap my 4s and my BB Porsche Design on the conference table, I know I already have attention from all the VIPs. Believe it or not Branding works subconsciously.
However, I hate to say this I'm disappointed a little bit in the quality of the iPhone 5. With all the scratches and scuffs already surfacing around, one would wonder how it will look one year from now. Nonetheless, I'm going to get one because once again it's all about the BRAND.
Ha ha. No street view.

I did not like the iphone from the word go, you look at iphone upgrades, compare price tags vs whats new and you realize what a stingy company apple is and I am sorry if you disagree but the price increase vs the the upgrade dont match plus if you need to get your phone on contract....YOU CANT AFFORD IT for those who say oh i got this, i got that plus if your $600+ phone feel outdated next year, is it worth it?
what gets me is not that I am an anti iphone, its the fact we know they have the money and power but use their customer loyalty to put whatever up there and say its an upgrade. more like iphone 4s.1 think the biggest jump iphone made was 3 to 4 thanks to siri. I actually liked the old curvy profile.
My iPhone 4's (Not 4S) home button is not giving up on me! It's still working fine! It is not as great as the 3GS's that I just sold but it's still good.
Krister, 30 Sep 2012"Apple dosent need that much of RAM" - because iOS is vintage and oudated. No widget... morehaving too much features slow down the system. Since the day of mac, apple offer smooth UI without useless programs. Oops I need to restart my sgs 3now it just hang after opening email LOL
AnonD-68204, 30 Sep 2012I still dont see an iPhone5, I do see an iPhone4S LTE. It is very sad when Apple gives a name ... moreYou just don't get it!
Adding extra RAM has the effect that it will increase power consumption. For every processing system(including phones) there is a optimum size for cache/RAM. Adding too much, does not increase the speed of the system, (in might decrease it even) and increases the power consumption.
A cache works by storing in a cache line main memory data corresponding to multiple sequential addresses(power of two). To access data in the cache you compare the address from the CPU(or other unit) to all the cache tags(a tag corresponds to a cache line and it includes the common MSB for the addresses of data allocated to a cache line).
If a cache is too small, you get a lot of cache misses(that's when the requested data is not in the cache). So you used power to check the addreses in all tags and in top of that you need write back a cache line to the main memory(if the cache is full) and bring the data corresponding to a cache line including the data with the requested address. Cache misses are very "expensive" for processing device, if you have too many of them, the system with such a cache is in fact slower than a system without a cache.
Now, if the cache(RAM) is too big, you'll have to continually power on the cache storing data to refresh it and when you compare the address you use more power to compare it with all the cache tags. You can find more data in the cache but you'll need more power accordingly to keep the data in the cache RAM through refreshing(Flash memory, used as main memory, does not need power to keep data).You can keep for example the number of tags, but double the cache line size. The problem with a long cache line is that you need to extract the requested data from it so you need more processing for that(shifting data) so you again use power and delay the system. If the new Android devices use 2 GB of RAM it means that the producers consider this size as optimal for their system. But for sure it will need at least twice the power compared to 1 GB of RAM. The optimum size of the cache is calculated so that you have the best compromise between power used and miss rates in the cache. If a system has high miss rates, it appears as slow running and this is not the case with the iPhone. So the cache/Ram size is enough.
