This is a device agnostic comment.. not aimed in any way towards iPhone or Android supporters.

Anyone willing to sit out for what.. 9 days to get a phone is nothing more than an attention whore.

A device would have to spit out $100 bills for me to consider camping out for any period of time.

if you are the only one in line... it means you are first, but also ONLY one... so you can just go home until an actual LINE forms...

I wouldn't wait in line for this, but if I did it would be at most 2 days before the release... not 9

Why wait so long for any phone? Do people not like the idea of having it delivered to them?

10. Googler (Posts: 813; Member since: 10 Jun 2013)


Would there be as many people in line if the media ignored them? Doubt it.

44??? No way! He's at most 28!

Anyway, what an idiot, lol, he's going to have pneumonia by the time this thing is released, he's going to get home and collapse before he even gets time to hook up his shiny new iPhone5S to his Mac.

weird, psycho, ancient man. in my own part of d world we don't line just because we want to get stupid gadget. I did that last when I was in kindergarten. this man needs to be medicaly examine. or should be taken to zoo. more over what specs did iPhone 5s have. maybe we should compare it with galaxy s2( yeah I mean s2) cos by 2020 iPhone 8s will have d spec of 2013 android smartphone or maybe we might have iPhone 8s at all. lolz

I really don't think any product is worth doing this. Be able to say your were the first to get something doesn't make it any better then getting it a month later.
