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?...

Because they aren't trying anymore. Done. Why did you feel the need to bring it up in a mocking fashion of my comment?

LOL at all you android haters. Pretty sure this is way nicer and more durable than the rest of android crap.
go take your hate somewhere else, you clearly just want attention.

I can drop/have dropped all of my Android phones and they survived. I dropped my wife's iPhone and it exploded. Not attention whores, we just like to speak the truth, Gregory.

You seriously can't say you were impressed. What did Apple bring new to the table? Nada!
People will buy it just because of Apple's brand. Nothing else.

The One X is way more durable than this... Same for the GS3, Sony Xperia T, and the Razr HD. Also, all of the phones I just mentioned are better than the iPhone 5.

But where is the term called 'WOW' ... 'SURPRISE'....'AMAZING'....'GREAT'.... 'NOW THATS AN INNOVATION!!' ? any of these suits you ?!!?!

Disappointing.....

SIII and Note II is much better...

well that's your opinion.. is stupid to think that everyone buys a phone on specs alone.. heck I don't buy a car on how many horsepower or how many airbags it has, I rely on a brand (Honda).. and no problems what so ever.. to call me stupid for a product that I am happy buying and that meets my expectation well then is my money and I guess I am a happy stupid shopper.

so you spend days telling people on other articles that the new iphone will be amazing and blow everything out the water, that apple are great then when it turns out the iphone 5 is a stretched 4s you changed to well its a reliable brand im happy with.

basically apple cud stamp there logo on a nokia 3310 say its new and you'd buy it and justify it by putting a positive spin on a mediocre release.

well that's when I was playing the fandroids game.. but now I got bored of hearing the same excuses on why people hate Apple.. reminds me a lot about a rapper from the early 90's Vanilla Ice people still hate him for no valid reason.. the haters here bored me and don't play that game anymore..

about blowing out of the water.. the phone needs to be release first.. dont we

comparin vanilla ice to apple .........your running out of valid comparisions

look how your comments have changed from blind apple hyping to crap comparisons

even when the phones released its gonna have exactly whats beed said so it wont change anything , there are better phones out already.

''the haters here bored me'' anyone who says anythin negative to your precious apple you class as a apple hater.

come on wheres your trying to put a positive spin on this new phone you been doing it all week so know you must see what a let down it is , you cant defend this move by apple its just lazy design and mediocre product

so because you cant justify this mediocre phone you rant that im beating a dead horse

basically you got no way to make this look positive so you want the comments to stop

and beliefs? strong word for a phone , is this the cult of apple lol

anyways i'll leave you alone, i mean you got the fact that the next iphone isnt new in anyway to deal with. thats worse then anything i can say

Why are you satisfied with this? It's obvious that this is just an incremental improvment over the 4S. Is that what you're good with, yearly upgrades that hardly make a difference? All of your arguments about Android are out of date, they were true about 2 years ago, but not anymore. It's just as smooth as iOS, has more functionality, has better battery life (most of the time), better and more durable designs, etc. What is your reason for staying? Not trying to bash or anything, I'm just honestly curious.

thanks for your comment but my expectations from Apple are different for Android and have all the right to call out Android if feel like it just like I will do it with Apple when feel like it
