Apple should have really concentrated on its new product rather than patents . I thought at least they would do it simultaneously . But they have completely lost it .

I am among the ones who agrees Samsung copied something from Apple . But that is long back and now they are miles ahead of Apple . But Apple is still crying about it and stopped developing .

Samsung should sue Apple for LTE, 4" screens, and panorama photos.

1. This is what what we have never designed before.
2. This phone would change the way humanity use a cell phone
3. It has got more than 200 new features which you will never find on this device.

If this is the device what you had been designing from last 2 years. cApple you should have consecrated on consumer's demands. If you think you can win the race of smartphone using this crap then I have got just 2 words for you -------> f**k Off

Revolution for Apple has died along with Steve, well at least for now...sorry Steve. The only improvements we'll see is the price! Yes... revolutionary price!

By copying the iPhone with the s1, they basically didn't have to dip their toe in the water to check if it's cold. Apple did that for them. They have fed from apples fame. Thieves.

You have to give credit to Apple for not changing a thing you know, lol, with respect to the renders and alleged images... Unlike Samsung's very own GS III whose rendered images were better than the actual product...and i mean the looks only. Teeny weeny sarcasm implied...:D

Exactly the same for the most part. Kinda surprised by that actually, the leaks were astronomical compared to the previous models. Steve has definitely left the building.

Well I hope you enjoy your same old same old. I think the iPhone 5 looks very very vanilla. Nothing new here.

Hey Gallitoking;
Since you are a die hard Apple fanboy, i got a question for you.
Are you at all dissapointed that its the same thing except extended to fit a bigger screen or do you think it is the next big thing for all iPhone users and fanboys.
Just a question bro.

Don't blame you. This seems to be a handset worth upgrading to if you have cash invested in the apple ecosystem.

Kudos to apple. A thin, light, non glass, LTE handset; fixes most of what blows about the 4s. Both colors at once and clear release dates too.

Kinda funny that all the pics have the demenstrator using both hands though. Pretty silly to keep trying to convince us it is a one handed device while using both hands. Shrug.

Still...looks like a winner.
