iPhone 5 shipping times normalizing - just "two weeks" now

0. phoneArena 20 Nov 2012, 07:55 posted on

Either Apple's suppliers are getting better, or demand for the iPhone 5 is slowly dropping, but the fact is that users who order Apple's latest and greatest invention from its online store now, will have to wait "just" two weeks before it arrives at their door mat...

At the store level, I assure you it has. There are far more people buying the 4 at .99 and the 4S at 99.99. We probably sell 20 4's and 4S's to one 5. The 5 has not wowed anyone but people like you who's blind devotion causes them to talk negative about any opinion or desire that is not the same as yours.

And, you calling someone else biased is comical at best, Mxy. You are easily one of the most biased people that posts on phone arena.

How is it dropping, the i5 has been out for two months and you still need to wait? Meanwhile I can walk into any store and get a S3 and Note II. Hell the day the S3 came out I could buy one in a AT&T store without issue. Meanwhile i5 was not available without Pre-Order.

As for supply if anyone wants to get it sooner jump on Apple.com at10PM and go through the purchase and select a local store. Here in Minnesota they have been available the next day for pick up.

Most people are going for the cheap and getting the 4 and 4S. The 5 hasn't wowed anyone I've talked to or sold phones to.

true apple dropped the ball on the iphone 5, but can i ask honestly why all the android fans are cheering for the nexus 4 when it didnt wow or bring anything new to the table

the main reason it is popular is price, but take that out the equation and its nothing special

I prefer Android(shocker there I'm sure lol) but I don't see anything special about the Nexus 4 since I need LTE connectivity as I am a Verizon agent. For people with access to someone's HSPA+ network, it's a great phone. Otherwise, it's meh.

see thats a reasonable answer, was expecting the over the top android fanboys to attack lol

all im seeing though from all manufactures is them dropping the little things like micro sd slots which for high end phones i always thought was a must. nowadays 16gb isnt enough for must. and those who buy the high end phones usually will be the ones who fill them with music films etc

yes im generalising, but i think ive got what i mean across lol

Well I am going to pick up the HTC Droid DNA and utilize Google Drive. For $2.50/mo, I get 30gb of storage, which is enough for me. The only pain in the rear is moving all those files to Google Drive lol. As an agent I still have unlimited data so streaming cloud storage isn't a big deal for me. I understand though for those without it how big a deal that can be without wifi close to them.

I went from Android to Apple today, and I see why everyone prefers Android. I don't know why I switched. The customization, the usability, the features, and the freedom that you get with an Android is just unmatched. I am trying to unload this iPhone 4S.
