Alleged iPhone 5 front panel sized up with the iPhone 4S on video
0. phoneArena posted on 01 Jun 2012, 01:53
Besides the alleged changes in resolution and screen aspect ratio that this front panel will bring, it seems that the front-facing camera might be placed in the middle, like on the iPad, if this ends up being the real deal, and not just chucked prototype parts...

If it's designed for sheep then...baaahhhhh
I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the new iPhone. I'm really hoping they bring over the saturation from the new iPad. I downloaded the movie "Hugo" in 1080p and my God, I've never seen a more gorgeous picture.
Still, I'm less concerned with the phone and more interested in the change in iOS. Hardware is great, but I want a bit more from the software side of things.

Agreed. Pretty hardware is nothing without great software. Also looking farward to the new iOS.

i like that its going to have the 4in screen but i kind of want to see it maybe 3mm wider. i have huge hands and sometimes an iphone just feels a bit too small. im sure the new design will be great. im crossing my fingers for a smaller charging port and an hdmi out. i highly doubt ill get it but if apple wants to keep people interested theyll need to add more additions and features. id also like to see a high mp camera, maybe 12?

Higher mega pixels doesn't mean a better camera I hope you know.

Brick? Not more than the other 4 Inch plus phones that are out there now.

woah, i don't think i like this longer aspect ratio. not increasing the width of the display is really going to take from the advantage of having a larger display, it pretty much mean the keyboard in portrait orientation is going to be roughly the same size as before.

I agree it just looks weird.. I'm gonna say it's fake apple is not that dumb

it looks quite ugly and out of shape,if this is indeed what the iphone 5 looks like then it'll add further proof to the notion that apple has lost its way since the 3gs days

Apple now jumps into the bandwagon of widescreen displays due to pressure from android phones

Lets be honest you won't like the iphone no matter what it looks like.

it's just a face plate, the only thing this reveals is that the next iPhone won't stray too far from Apple's design philosophy but that doesn't mean it'll be similar enough to elicit a remark like that.
9. scnix posted on 01 Jun 2012, 02:56 5 1
Why didn't they increase the width a little wider as well? It now looks unusually long. :/
13. FoneAddict posted on 01 Jun 2012, 03:31 3 1
I agree, it looks too thin and elongated. Spec wise this looks more iPhone 4.5S rather than iPhone 5. Disappointed
11. guruprasad posted on 01 Jun 2012, 03:17 3 1
its not only about increasing the screen size but also the price...increase 100$ than the current 4s with same old specs of the 4s.....apple is just fooling their fans and making profit....

hahahahaha Rofl What a beautiful design. Inspired by Brick :D

50 bucks says Apple will copy Samsung's smart stay feature..
16. RORYREVOLUTION posted on 01 Jun 2012, 04:54 1 0
That was the thing i loved about HTC phones like the EVO and Thunderbolt. Both had large 4.3 displays but they were wider and better to type and view websites on. Look at the Droid X compared to the Thunderbolt. Same screen size but Thunderbolt was psychically shorter and wider. I miss those days!
17. Sangeet posted on 01 Jun 2012, 05:33 1 0
yeah, it is true that when you compare the display to that of the current iPhone then it will feel a little weird but the main reason for that weirdness is not that the new iphone will have a very long display it is just because the current iPhone has a very shorter display when compared to the new panel, but i am sure that when you keep it with other phones that have even larger displays then i am sure that the new screen panel would look normal,
and by the way Samsung Galaxy S, HTC One X, Sony Xperia S, Lg Nitro HD and other phones also have a 16:9 aspect ratio with an even larger screen but that does not feel awkward so guys chill as it is not gonna affect it at all

Possibly a fake. Apple rumored to have redesigned the home button So one leak is contradicting the other. it's going to be a long summer with these "leaks".

Funny...the music seemed larger than the screen size. Not that i liked it!! :P

Hope this isn't the new iPhone front glass. That would be very disappointing and just confirm that my next upgrade will be the SIII. I think Apple is smarter/better than that though so we will see. I'm going to say it is fake

Quite a few trolls here as usual and PA doing nothing about it
34. taco50 (banned) posted on 01 Jun 2012, 10:44 1 2
its sad for them really that they have nothing better to do. I just get annoyed when I get a warning and they let people troll all day.
Im not your bro
35. VZWuser76 posted on 01 Jun 2012, 11:06 2 1
So if someone has any negative opinion on Apple, they're trolling? Just because people don't bleed Apple doesn't mean they don't get to have an opinion on it. You and Galito always say you can state yout opinions but no one else can? That's pretty f*****g hypocritical. And expecting PA to get rid of them? This is what they want. Flamebait is there for the purpose of page views. Everyone's opinions count, not just one side of them.

So did you miss all the troll comments I posted for you? Who's the hypocrite when you pretend like there's no anti Apple troll posts on every article? You have no problem with trolling unless it's anti android.
PA gives warnings to some users and completely ignores the constant trolling of others.

So... any person who expresses his disgust and hatred about Apple and\or it's products is considered a troll?
Go on - Sniggly should join this conversation soon and win in this intellectual debate as always, anyway. :D
46. taco50 (banned) posted on 01 Jun 2012, 14:04 1 1
if you have disgust and hatred for a tech company then you have some deep seated issues
48. ilia1986 posted on 01 Jun 2012, 17:36 0 1
Nope.. In fact I think that anyone who is aware of what Apple is, what it does, what it's products can do, and what it's products could do if Apple didn't choose to limit them, should have a little bit of hatred and disgust for it.
49. taco50 (banned) posted on 01 Jun 2012, 20:38 1 0
You're ignorant to the fact why they limit stuff. For example multitasking is limited to preserve battery life. It's a trade off. Not everyone will like it so they have other choices.
50. ilia1986 posted on 01 Jun 2012, 21:54 0 1
The reason matters not. If you were to buy a car - and find out that you can only turn the radio from 2PM to 6 PM - would you really care about reasoning? Wouldn't you be freaking mad at the company which made the car?
42. VZWuser76 posted on 01 Jun 2012, 12:35 5 1
I'm not saying there isn't anti apple posts. But you seem to think that it's ok when you do it. That's the definition of a hypocrite. When you have gotten infractions, I seem to recall you getting personal and ridiculing them. Attacking a company or an OS is one thing, ridiculing people is another. Asking for someone to be banned for their opinion is wrong, unless they go after someone because of their race, religion, sexual preferrence or political beliefs. And some of the comments you posted from others are wrong in that they're inciting arguments that bring nothing to the table for a discussion on the issues. But does that mean you have to do the same. All that ends up happening is it spirals out of control into name calling.
What do you guys think a casual phone user who comes on here to read up on news thinks when they see this stuff? To me it reminds me of what I see when I watch my nieces & nephews. If you want to be taken seriously, make a serious post, otherwise anything you maybe trying to convey gets lost. The way things are now, you have to wade through post after post of crap to find anything worth taking away. And I know this kinda stuff isn't only on here. You even see this on a strictly android or apple site. But it's getting really old. It's almost like being in grade school and watching the hecklers spout off while someone's trying to give a report.
The worst is anyone, and I mean ANYONE, who cannot see anything good in the other's comments or OS of choice and bashes them simply because they like something different. I can see the benefits for some people to go with Apple, but it's not for me. Just the same as an Apple user may see the benefits of android, but it's not for them. Should either of us begrudge someone using what works for them, no. But apparently we'd be in the minority on here.
As far as your last remark, you do the same, but are still here. You may have been warned at times, but you have to admit, you're no better than the people you rail against. I would feel less sorry for you if you'd just take the high road or try politely to change someone's mind. But with comments like android is copied or it's a mess, do you really think that those comments will do anything but make the people your arguing with do anything but attack right back? Try being more civil with them. Some may be civil back, some may not. If they're not, ignore them. They will look more foolish trying to attack someone who is nothing but curteous and receptive to others opinions or ideas. Try it.

Agreed it is sad and i'm sure they get warnings as well but don't act for a second that you have never trolled on PA yourself since all the hatred directed at you is the direct cause of it.

Wow, another nominal upgrade to a boring phone and OS. Maybe APPLE will allow its users to download ringtones and notification tones....maybe not.
