Cupertino blown away by demand for Apple iPhone 5

0. phoneArena 15 Sep 2012, 01:49 posted on

The first day of pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 5 found strong demand for the device across all carriers and models; after the fairly tepid response to the Apple iPhone 4S, pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 5 led Apple spokesman to say that Apple has been "blown away" by the demand for the phone...

You guys are so naive.
Every new iPhone release will beyond doubt blow the previous one away..it's how things go when you create a user base and popularity status of this magnitude.
It's the same thing, just to a bit lesser magnitude, that started to roll with the Galaxy series.
But things will even out next year, imo.
Now the Galaxy S has a large user base that will only increase with the word of mouth and, given that it's cheaper and way more capable than iPhone, the demand for the next one should probably double compared to the S3 - which will put it right next to iPhone.

Apple's problem is that once the world finally embraces android through the popularity of the Galaxy series, it just can't prevent iPhone from becoming a Mac of the handheld market.

Well said but I wouldn't limit it just to the S3. I believe there are going to be some incredible Nexus devices getting ready to be released. In the past Nexus haven't sold well but this time Google will advertise them like the Nexus 7. Explosion of consumer choice on the horizon.

At least no news of idiot people camping outside stores weeks and months ahead. I swear they must be paid to do that bulls**t. I don't mind the phone, its the people that annoys me. I know, its none of my business, but sometimes you just can't ignore that crap. Can't wait to see pic, more or less advertisement, of first guy jumping up for joy after purchase iPhone. Guarantee, same style pic everytime.

Let him. He is probably driving the economy with his peers. Good for them. Let's just hope they don't put everything on credit.

That could be the stupidest thing you could ever do...Not only did you just waste your time lining up, you've also already given Apple the money, they couldn't careless what you do with it.

Best thing to do is just ignore it's existence.

I find this thing so ugly to be honest. It's like too long + narrow.
The Meizu MX loks 100x better and I use that phone as an example because it's what I thought the iP5 would look had it been designed by people who gave a f*ck.

only crazy people will get iphone 5! its not that i hate apple, its just that i expected iphone 5 to beat SIII. i dont get why someone would wanna buy such a lame device when SIII is much better and htc is going to release its monster device on 19th september that broke all the benchmark records. A four inch screen with no increase in width is so lame. moreover some apps are still to be updated to fit on 4.0". Now thats just LAME!!!

Think I will stick to buying a phone that has NFC, compatible bluetooth, expandable storage and an HD screen.

The below clip proves that people who are using Apple phones really dont know the difference between iphone5 & iphone4s. Just watch below clip you will understand what I mean,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdIWKytq_q4&feature=player_embedded

After seeing this clip I came to this conclusion that arguing with apple fanboys is waste of time & energy.

I believe a lot of people will be disappointed when they received their iphone 5 in their hands and may end up in emergency wards in hospital when their phones proved not to be like Apple has advertised ,especially since Iphones sales are final .

Who cares about the specs?! Apple releases a phone with half the specs that runs twice as smooth as any Android phone! I had a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon for 6 months. I put a JB ROM and custom kernel and it still wasn't as smooth as my iPhone 4S. Some, not all, of you Android fans are compensating for something...
