the problem is Apple is so full of themselves they think they can sell 4 generations of iphones with a 3.5 inch screen.... while everyone else is going to 4.7 (which is 80% bigger area btw)..

then all of a sudden, they say "holy crap, the other guys screens are 80% bigger, lets rush something out"..

now they got a all glass phone, that needs a 70 gram cover / bumper so you dont break it the first time you drop it, where the screen doesnt work right and its still 25% smaller than WP8 or Android.....

apple only gives you what they think is good for you.... good luck.

Oh no, this is iPhone's new feature. iPhone 5 edges is so sharp that users may cut their own fingers if they swipe like that and Apple deliberately built this excellent preventive feature into iPhone 5.

"Dear user, you swipe it wrong"

exactly what I was thinking. Are we really comparing this to the antennagate problem?

For ppl that play games...this would be irritating. Now dont tell me yall think ppl dont play games on iPhones? There were some articles that called it the best mobile gaming device, better than PSP's and whatnot.

More people are going to be swiping diagonally then dropping their tablets on concrete and PA did a whole article about the iPad mini vs. Nexus 7 drop test comparison.

Grab your phone.. and pull down the drop menu lol what motion do you make? (a perfect from the top middle to bottom middle?) Id imagine its more comfy to do at an angle.

It will join the annals of Apple along with antennagate, etc... in that the diehards will insist it isn't a real issue, that it's a conspiracy to make Apple look bad. It's already starting on other tech sites.

I think Apple release a beta product (iPhone 5) to test, discover the problems they have and then release a more stable version (iPhone 5S) later. This phone has had even more problems than the 4 had. And as usual Apple's gonna deny but later fix them in its successor, calling it revolutionary features. Great way to extract money as dumb & clueless iFans will buy both regardless.

That's Apple's innovative way of what can be called "Extortion" :D

What about the iconic iOS game Infinity Blade? Must be frustrating having that powerful 3-core GPU inside a frozen iPhone 5. Let's hope this issue is only a software glitch.

Thank you, I couldnt think of the other game this would cause issues for. I dont know alot about iPhone games, but there are some this would definitely cause issues for.

I don't run into this. And I play infinity blade quite a bit. It's definitely overblown. If EVERYONE had it we would've heard about this weeks ago.

This is so overblown, lol. When you're playing infinity blade, you don't swipe your hand across the screen like that.

I just hope that the same effort that people are making to point out all the errors/glitches on iPhone are doing the same for other devices. Probably not....

And this is what you get from spending 2.4 billion on 'R&D'.

I know I'm going to get alot of hate for this from the narrow minded people but I can honestly say I haven't run into any of the iPhone 5 issues. I cannot recreate this glitch here no matter how hard I try. My camera does have the purple tint but no more than my iPhone 4 or Samsung focus did. I've had really good luck with this phone.

That looks like the touch screen driver/server issue that several of the 1st demo CM7 for the HP touchpad had issues with... (where the touchscreen driver would crash...)

My guess is that's a driver issue... could be wrong... but that's my guess... (not cool it wasn't caught in testing... guess they were too busy suing other companies rather than testing their own new stuff...)

They were busy testing patience of other "Innvoative Companies" and Scott Forstall was so pissed that he had sold his shares ion many itself so he didn't care a damn as to what was happening with iOS666
