I hate ios6, but I have to give credit to the design and premium feel. I want a phone using those materials running android jellybean.

The guy in picture looks like such a douche. What kind of complex do you have to have to spend a week in line, spend a fortune on a phone, and then hold it up and celebrate like you are spiking the ball at the superbowl?

best and biggest troll in history ever: when iphone 6 or whatever it will be called launches next year, we, android users (windows phone users are welcome to join us too :P) will stand in this line, like, all of us together in the line, and when we enter the apple store, just ask where is the *enter your favorite android device's name* :D.

I personally wouldn't stand in line for an iPhone, or any product, but I can understand why people do. It might not be about being the first to get the device... it could just be about the adventure (loosely used) and excitement. Let’s face it, some people are just fans and want to be a part of the excitement....

The same thing happens when a popular move comes out (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings) Also, people line up for huge sales... especially during the holidays (Black Friday).

I'd say that the fans have some fun. Don’t be so judgmental!

About time some one understands. Good post bro, these r people who want, and have the rite and money to purchase what they want. Nothing more nothing less. The android users want android let the apple users have what they want, and just leave it b. I'm standing in line as I write this having a ball. Socializing with people, drinking coffee on my iPad just chillin. When a new android device launches do u see apple fans dogging it n mass? No! Sometimes these comments r so dumb u jus gotta laugh. Anyway Dave good post man. Looking forward to my ip5.

Thanks for the reply bro!

Keep us posted on the iPhone. I'd love to hear an unbiased opinion on it.

Anyway, I'm glad someone is intelligent enough to understand freedom of choice. Standing in line to be one of the first to get the iPhone does not make you a fanboy.

Its all about having fun and enjoying the experience. Like I said... I wouldn't stand in line for any new product. But I can definitely respect people who would because I can see the REAL reasons behind the action.

My review will give all the good and all the bad, and I'll start with maps since its taking the most heat.

Maps isn't as bad as reported bro I'm sure it'll work great for you... I was pleased with it...

Must be nice waiting in line sharing your thoughts with the phonearena community...

I actually am eligible for upgrade now but I need to sell my 4S first... Any suggestions???

@Good2Great,

I think the best bet to sell your iPhone 4s is Ebay. I believe there is a buy it now section that is currently paying top $ for the device and it sells immediately.... Good Luck Dude!

I see this is the reasonable phone user section... I'm gonna hang out with you guys :-)

Peace in the midst of war!

I wouldn't stand in line either... But if hundreds of people show up to buy a phone guess what?

IT FORMS A "LINE" lol

Why does it matter to y'all that their standing outside? It's their life and they might like the thrill. I ordered mine online and just received it but I see nothing wrong with waiting for a product.

I just don't understand why these people don't pre-order. It'll take some weeks for developers to update their apps for the fragmentation anyway..

Y do they have to preorder? If they want to stand in line, and get the phone on launch day what's the problem? That's what I'm doing rite now.
