Alleged iPhone 5S images leak, smartphone looks familiar

0. phoneArena 11 Feb 2013, 07:16 posted on

Yup, that's what the iPhone 5S will look like, if the latest leak delivered by the rumor mill is to be trusted. Looks quite familiar, doesn't it? In fact, the smartphone in the photos below appears to be more or less identical to the iPhone 5...

Does this shock anybody? Once again complete lack of innovation from apple. But yet the sheep will still flock to it...

And where is the innovation in Android?Or in the latest Android flagships?iPhone 5 is faster than any Android handset on the market.In the latest 2-3 years I didn't see any innovative iOS or Android handset.
The only device that impressed me in last time was the Surface Pro.
Phonearena is full of trolls(iphone/android fanboys).

Smart stay. Smart rotation. Multi window. S-beam.

Those are just off the top of my head, and from one flagship.

Those are all examples of manufacturer overlays...not Android as a whole.

No it isn't and android isn't stolen from apple. Both have design queues from other, but neither is stolen. Get real.

I rarely hit the +1 or -1, but you get a +1 for the most common sense thing I've seen posted on PA in a while.

r u lost?? do some research before you write something...iOS came first into the market in 2007 and then android came in 2008...android was never planned to compete with iOS (coz google don't know) instead they (google) designed it to compete with BB OS...when suddenly apple launched iphone in '07 the game changed all of a sudden...google quickly revamped their OS for touch screens and in '08 android lauched G1...that is in brief...for more info read how & why eric shifted from apple board and became google CEO and google fortunes turned with android....etc...
So, don't just comment what ever u want, do some research (of course in google) and then write...

Its a knockoff. I'm glad to see you support knockoffs.

I wish they would innovate. It would be better for the industry. I honestly think a "5s" with the same design will make people wake up. Especially with the Galaxy SIV having visual improvements. I can see the Samsung commercials now if the iPhone of the summer ends up being this.

Apple doesn't learn from its mistakes. Their die hard fans are getting tired of the same old thing year after year. I expect a rise in WP8, BB10, and Android market share this year.

That doesn't make any sense since Apple continuously goes up in market share and user base.

This is what Apple does every year, it's not meant to be a surprise. And "the sheep" flock to it because it works and doesn't lag like Android over time.

You actually think there isn't lag in iOS?

Nexus 4, GNote II, Xperia Z, Droid DNA, One X+ exhibit no lag. Where have you been?

Even my GS2 with the "Crapdragon" S3 doesn't lag, and it's nearly 2 years old.

My gnote 2 exhibits lag from time to time. So does my ip5. What never seems to lag is my fianc├ęs 8x. Always butter smooth.

Really? I've worked with the Note II for a bit, and it seemed instantaneous with every action I made. My buddy owns one, and he says it has never lagged on him once. Same thing with the iPhone 5, another friend said it's always responsive and smooth, but he wishes the animations were faster.

WP has always been super smooth, even on my old Radar with a single core processor never lagged on me once.

Then there's a problem with ur Note II. I have mine since October 10th and until now have yet to find lag. There might be stuttering once in a blue moon, but that's it. I have 40+ apps, 5 homescreens filled with widgets and icons, 2 1080p movies, 300+ songs and 100+ pictures.

Nope it's just a electronic device and will hiccup now and then. Even yours stutters every blue moon rite?
