iPhone 5 is the same old iPhone with larger body and screen. No new innovation like Galaxy S3 with Smart Stay is awesome.

Som if it's got a larger body and screen then it's not the same phone dude. Plus all we've seen so far r mockups, we'll all b eating our words if it comes and looks nothing like these mockups. Who knows that 5 we see on the invite mite mean screen size. I doubt it though

Such comments are so ignorant in my opinion. How can you say no innovation? Do you amazingly have an unreleased device in your hands because then I would retract my comment immediately?! It's just so stupid to make such comment and completely judge a device before it is even launched.

Agree, those who are excited about iPhone or iPad, are probably excited for nothing as it will only have some few minor changes and features. The rest will remain same.

Been taking to supplies for cases accessories recently,while they aren't allowed show us the new design the general word is to pretty much expect the iphone 4s again with just with the stretch up screen.
There's been enough leaks recently to add weight to that

U don't think apple might come outta the blue with something totally different? It seems like they got something up their sleeve by not reacting n the least bit to these leaks. Remember in 2010 they went nuts when gizmodo got the iPhone 4 prototype? That was Steve jobs then though.

"More customers disappointed over minor advancements added to the iPhone 4s squared" should be the title.

That's because there's nothing exciting about an iPad mini. I really can't imagine much of a market for the mini but we'll see.

New design, headphone jack on the other side of the device. New smaller battery. New nano Sim. Mini connector.

Don't worry, they will make it sound 100x better than me in their advert and the sales will brake record again. Only because people are dumb.

most people are Android fans just cause they use the S3 to compare means nothing id bash apple only cause they deserve it. you honestly think apple has done anything new? besides suing over meaningless patents for shapes.

I never said it, I never seen apple advertise anything about innovative.

Open your eyes man, Samsung is know for mimicking other companys.

As far as the patents go, that's business. You have to know the rules before you get into the game

"I swear these s3 fans spend a lot of time on this website bashing iPhones" only one person admited to owning the s3 and he commented back. i dont know how you got "samsung didnt copy" from what i said. they did somewhat..

for the patent issue ill leave it be we all know that it was pointless

Don't worry. I am "bashing" iPhone while enjoying my "maxi pad looking" phone.
It makes it that much sweeter.

Of course more are excited for the iPhone than the mini iPad when the mini iPad doesn't even exist.
