The iPhone 5 is official - do you like it?

0. phoneArena 12 Sep 2012, 14:05 posted on

Isn't it amazing how the rumor mill managed to get most of the iPhone 5 features right? From the A6 processor and 4-inch Retina display, to the redesigned dock connector and slimmer profile, everything was leaked weeks prior to the announcement. But at the same time, despite the fact that the iPhone 5 announcement lacked any big surprises whatsoever, Apple's latest smartphone remains a handset with amazing specifications and premium design. And in all honesty, we kind of like it already despite not having the opportunity to try it out first hand, or at least not yet. But what about you?...

didn't the iphone 4s "disappoints" when it launched last year? what happened and how come did it outsold all phone manufacturers for 10 months? are you sure all you apple haters don't want to buy the iphone 5 or just a hater in front of their keyboards? if this phone outsold the s3, given the 3 months headstart, then mission failed for all you haters.

That is not what the poll is about - comparing sales.
We were not impressed and thats it.

People ain't buying iPhones because they are impressed. They are buying iPhones because it is an iPhone! When was the last time you were impressed with what Apple released? 2007?

The time's long gone since Apple's announcements made us excited. Maybe we felt a little during iPhone 4, which brought a refreshing new design but that's it. Haven't had that kinda excitement since then.

The SGS3 is a really goods phone. Now you have the best of both worlds a SGS3 and a Note put into one. Last i recall HTS is making a phone with a 5 inch screen. That should be called the HTC One XL!!!

The iPhone 5 is by far the most dull, uninteresting Apple release EVER. Idk how they will market this over the 4S.

I want to see all of you come back and comment on the phone arena article that apple has outsold every phone and has record sales. Mark my words.

if that happens we seriously need to start bringing education levels up because there must be alot of stupid people out there

apple has failed to bring anything new or revolutionary to the table, just made it bigger

Of course we will come back. And say that it's surprising and outrageous. There and better phones out there and still this one sells most?
Then something's terribly wrong with people.

I am sooooooooo disappointed in Apple with these new introduced product portfolio's today! I didn't see anything new brought to the table whatsoever!! Here was a perfect opportunity for Apple to bring NFC technology to the table what happened??? Come on Apple please don't kill Steve Jobs' legacy with craptacular rehash idea's!! Go with forward thinking please!! Watch Apple come out in March 2013 with Iphone 5S smh!!

Yes, the iPhone 5 is okay, but a few more extras could have been thrown in.

Nothing amazing to make me switch from Android... Looks like it's down to the LG Optimus G, the next Nexus, and the Razr MAXX HD. Good try Apple, but not good enough.

You know, I was all about Samsung and possibly HTC with Google suing Apple to prevent this Iphone-5 from being release, but after hearing and reading about this phone;
I think it would be a waste of money and resouce on getting this junk ban...hahahah
