Internets go crazy for (probably fake) pics of the iPhone 5S

0. phoneArena 05 Dec 2012, 11:16 posted on

The Apple iPhone 5 has only been out for a few months now, but that isn't stopping the Internets from going crazy over (probably fake) pics of the iPhone 5S. The pictures were supposedly taken of a device straight off the factory line, and they may well have been, but that doesn't make us any more likely to believe the images are of the iPhone 5S...

Exactly! iPhone 5 already has some of the best hardware, great camera, audio, display, design, etc. What would really make a difference is iOS7, they better get rid of the stale, boring, and static interface. A drastic change has to be made...

What price??? Iphones are cheaper compared with SOME android devices that run ridiculously HIgh on prices and not even have the Hardware iPhone 5 has... APPLE keeps its price all the time, Android devices always have dif. prices. If Apple put a projector in iphone 6 lets say and other cool hardware like 3D and iR sensor to work as a universal remote would still have the same prices. So what the heck are you complaining about...

Would be nice if Apple could introduce a completely revamped OS. But it won't happen.

"Internets go crazy for (probably fake) pics of the iPhone 5S"

O no I got exactly what you were saying... And what I was saying, was that since all iOS devices are basically the same, the iPhone 5 mini already exists as the iPhone 4S.

Guess that went right over YOUR head smh

theres a differance between hating and attacking anyone who says anything that isnt hate for apple ( i refer you to my comments which are reasonable yet look at the hate) and been fair with your comments.

face it android users on here love to moan and slate others, play the biased card every article that isnt focused on android or isnt praising android.

you should re-read, look on this article and look at all the android fans moaning and slating apple. if they hate that much why look on the apple articles

and i dont hate android, you just dont like people saying the truth. to you android fans are perfect and always right.

besides i have an android tab, why would i buy one if i hate them .....get your facts right before saying bs

You seem to be a bigger troll honestly. Should join PA team. Did you do a coun t of how many times you use the pharse "ANDROID FANS" in any of your posts. Grow up man instead of drooling. What you have and you don;t have is non verifiable. So just don;t yap you have android tab just to present yourself as a "balanced" person. The number of times ytou write "ANDROID FANS" is also "GENERALISING MILLIONS" and wonder why @MH lets you troll so much.

Go ahead write a lengthy cr@p again in response to this :)

So your "opinion" is a "fact" and others are just "opinions". What a joke really and find it surprising MH seconding your opinion (oops fact in your opinion ...lol). Surprising you didn't post a long enuff sermon that you are habitual of doing whenever it comes to tryin g to make some sense. What's your mental age?

yeah your not very good at trying to twist my words, especially when you have to add words to make it work. ive seen some onf your posts always commenting from a point of self superiority.

''What's your mental age?''

wow so how low does that make you, please you android lot love to team up its pretty sad enjoy your flase sense of belonging

i mean to be fair to the guy
out of millions
a large portion of them are going to share the same point of views and most of the ones that don't share the same point of view derrive their feelings from the same source the android experience
so anyone that prefers android over ios and hates ios... well
android fan

"face it android users on here love to moan and slate others"

Now what's that? Your opinion which is "generalising" and not a "fact" because I am also a Android user who would never ever go to WINDOWS or Apple. But I am not what you are trying to paint every android user as.

Wonder why you are allowed so much leeway here by PA. Are you by any chance alias of one of staff here? Let's see if MH sends me a warning for writin g this. Before me you should be warned honestly. You try to show you are a neutral techie but you are not. So grow up.

these posters who say that they are neutral are full of B.S. My wife has an ipad and iphone 4S (VZW) - she complains about the 4S messing up - especially on texting. I def know what I am talking about when it comes to older windows phones, tablets and Android and Apple, because they are everywhere in my house (unfortunately, we also have an AT&T wi-fi only 3GS and an ipod touch - but the kids love them and that is what counts for me). If you love tech...I mean reallllllly love tech, you just are not going t o love iproducts as much as something that can modded.

We all can stay neutral as long as we buy what we truly desire and move on without comparing it to a product used by someone else.

apple 5S with 4.5" screen... that will make apple iPhone comparable to huge android and now WP devices!

really hoping (but with zero chance of bein greal) that iOS 7 will have a major revamp!! if apple wants to wow people and want to make itself relevant in the years to come!

live widgets and a real homescreen would be nice...well atleast it has 3 homescreen + dock! and swipe up along with the dock will show the apps!

that would be cool to see an iphone closer to 5 inches - I wonder if their users would still complain about size then?

100. MC1123 (Posts: 1243; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)


actually for me, 3.5" to 4.5" is normal... bigger than that is huge while smaller than that is tiny! i cant even text properly on my 4.3" phone...but still a good size...coz you can actually hold it and it will wont look rediculous is you're making a call!

i dont think a lot of people complains about the current size of the iPhone!

but it would be nice that the next iPhone (5S or 6 whatever) and the next iOS version to have a major revamp...

yes, i believe steve jobs or people from apple that iOS isnt broken, and they say you dont need to fix what is isnt broken...

but its really getting boring! while on android, yes it is very malicous (due to apps) but have some new or great improvements everytime there's a new version!

so all i want for apple is to make some major revamp on iOS

It'd be nice to see the iPhone become more like android software-wise, and android to become more like iPhone hardware-wise. It would be perfect nirvana! Imagine something like the Galaxy Note 2 or the Galaxy S3 with the iPhone's design! That's not likely to happen though, at least not while Apple is putting every company in court for "copying." I was an apple fanboy... until i decided to give android a try!
