All you need to know about the iPhone 5

All you need to know about the iPhone 5
Boy, what an announcement this was! Apple introduced its iPhone 5 to the eyes of media and millions of excited users, and just like that, the device has become the world's most-discussed gadget.

The iPhone 5 is hot for a reason! It has a brand new design, a bigger and better display, faster processor, better camera, LTE, etc., etc. Surely, this will be the main topic of conversation for all tech-savvy people for the days, week, and maybe even months to come. Well, one thing you don't want to be during those conversations is to be uninformed! Instead, why don't you show you friends that you know much more than them? But be warned, young Padawan, - it won't be easy! It's going to take a lot of reading, but once you're done, we guarantee that you'll feel like a real iJedi! What? We can't really promise you that you'll be able to make a great impression on chicks with that kind of stuff, but look it on the bright side, at least you'll be in the know about the latest developments in the tech industry, and that, our friend, is worth more than the chicks and the ego... (no, we don't really believe that).

After that brief (and somewhat weird) introduction, we'd like to present to you our amazing, magical, phenomenal and revolutionary...

"It has a brand new design.." Get serius.. I believe that some people are seriously ready to accept anything, that an apple says. It is called blindfolded approval. Scary.

Samsung seems to have beaten Apple in features. iPhone os better looking but just the screen staying on as long as eyes are on screen gives Sammy the upperhand. Note 2 for me. And the Stylus is just a whole new world of delight. Nope Samsung for me.

Phonearena is in the money making business, and unfortunately tech geeks only make up a small percentage of the world. The iphone will still sell regardless of the specs bc it was the first revolutionary phone and average consumer will always flock to it until the next revolutionary phone comes out that will change the way we use mobile devices.

Ignorant ifans, despite low publicity given to galaxy s3, it is the highest selling mobile phone yet, over 100million in 100days

Where do you get your sales numbers from. Samsung has not reported there earning report that would cover the S3 sales numbers since it was released. ICBS

Apple Hater's. ? When was the last time a android phone was released, and it moved the stock market. Not just Apple stock, but other stocks that may get a boost from being involved with Apple. NEVER. That is why this is getting so much coverage. Face it, The iphone is still the People's Champ.

I was not wowed this time, Sorry, I am sure like always it is a great product, with the same price point as the other models, but, we all knew it was going to be faster, and bigger, even though, it isn't that much bigger screen size. The edge to edge in the new RAZR's I like. Its been fun Apple, but my next family upgrade is going elsewhere. The design I am sorry but its long in the tooth. If this was the first or second iPhone to look like this, I would be excited, but in all honesty its starting to look like the Blackberries, every time they released a new Bold or a curve, they all looked the same pretty much, this is what it reminds me of Apple will still sell a ton of them, but not to me this time.

omg still it sucks. guyss have u noticed one thing? they just have increased the size because of other competetors out there it hardly makes difference in the screen size. THEY HAVE NOT MADE IT WIDER. its clear that wih that screen size , wider phones look great and useful. it looks like a choclate bar. there is no doubt that the desighn is good looking but hey apple is MAKING FOOL of ppl here. Usually companies, work according to the demand of people and consider those demands srsly. but here its opposite. apple is actually and literally making PEOPLE- follow COMPANY'S own demands. and apple iphone was a BIG HYPE. just to sell their damn products and prove that they r on top they developed this crap stuff. and ppl r following. wow all idiots i would say. look at android---- they r producing what people r demanding- for eg- big screen, better user interfaces, more ppi and thing phones etc. so its u guys who have to decide whether to go for the hype or not.

There is a reason why Apple did not make the phone wider or double wide for you. Apple made the screen longer because it did not effect the apps. A wider screen and they would have had to changed all of the apps.

its effected the apps anyway, there will be 2 black bars when you used the old apps so they could have made it wider but its a lazy design last time i seen black parts on a screen when running an app was on my 6630 with s60 ........outdated much
