Youre the idiot for supporting a company that wants to ban any company that will drop Apple's stock

I'm sorry, but we're talking about Apple here, the kings of profit margins. They will price this version at the current 4S pricing, drop the 4S to the current 4 pricing, and the 4 to free, dropping the 3GS entirely. Their record over the years gives them absolutely positively no incentive to change that trend.

actually I love Android. I don't think iOS is the way for me to go but you know, I really had to try new stuff. Either a JB Nexus, WP8 or the new iPhone just for a change of habit.

Wait....so, the production samples pictured lately showing that this is NOT a complete redesign, more like a design evolution to incorporate certain features...those are completely smoke and mirrors, right?

I don't care for Apple or it's products but I feel disappointed for the consumers who prefer iPhones that the new iPhone will only have a 4inch screen because it's still l too small. Come on Apple all that profit revenue and you can't afford to give your customers a phone that can compete against the best androids out there. And yes a 4inch screen is small my first android was a 3.5inch screen phone running 1.5 cupcake and then I got screen envy and I worked hard to finally afford a 4inch Motorola Atrix and now a 4.3inch HTC One S but then my friend showed me his Sgs2 with a screen of 4.5 and I'm thinking of upping that with a n Sgs 3. Oh will this ever stop.

It's not a race to see which manufacturer can make the biggest screen size and I think that's what a lot of you don't understand. The iPhone's screen size has gotten a little too small for me, but the SGIII's large screen and body size is one of the reasons why I returned it.

And you don't really have that many choices with Android either (as you guys like to think). If you want a flagship device, you're kinda forced to buy a huge phone. 3.5inches is really not great, but it's doable if the next iPhone is any good. I think 4 inches would be perfect for those that need a slightly bigger screen and a small phone. If you don't want that, buy a Note or SGIII

I feel as though there really isn't that much "hype" around the iPhone5 if you follow phone technology. The hype comes from the people that buy phones without really knowing what they are getting. From what I have seen rumored, the iPhone5 isn't bringing a whole lot to the table. For technology sake, I hope the most anticipated phone of the year comes with it a lot harder than what the rumored specs and everything are. I have not been blown away by a new smartphone since the SGSII

Sounds like a possible release date however going on rumors isn't promising.

Wow someone says jailbreak an iphone to get a feature you want then Android fanboy says "Some people also like their manufacturer's warranty." but most android users on here say root your phone to get rid of lag or to get custom rom's hmm thought I'd point that out

The iPhone 5 will decide whether I ditch Apple and go back to HTC or stick with Apple for another 2 years. A major deciding factor is going to be the screen, if its just longer than the current iPhones then no way I'm getting one.

That's not the iPhone 5. The bezel is too thin and the phone is longer not wider.

Did you ever consider that the supplier is being given a date to have a certain amount of the phone assembled by? If manufacturer is to have, for example, 10M units finished by Sept 21, it will probably take another month for them to be shipped to the States, clear customs and be distributed to retailers.

Why do people even post on apple threads if they don't even like apple if ur a droid fan then post on droid threads everytime I read these it just turns into a bash session!!! I've had 3 droid phones and 4 iPhones and liked both iPhone is just more simple and in the end its just a phone they both do a hell of a lot more than what is expected iPhone in the end is a winner and the new iPhone looks sexy and I can't wait to get it!!

I have used so many different mobile platforms over the years and I have to agree... these threads have become nothing but Android users bashing on Apple and iOS users... It's frankly very childish and has gotten really old.

or at least a mobile optimized site, LOL.

Apps are overrated personally, most website based apps boil down to just being the same as, or even sometimes slightly worse than, a mobile site.
