Haha even PA is getting confused with the similar iphones lol

The iphone 5s could design wise be one step closer to the iphone 10 dream design reality:

Not sure but I think the 4S mite b the faster selling of the two. Maybe jus the top selling, not sure...both r great phones though.

There are no hard figures, but the best estimates peg the 4s at 30+ million over three months.

its just a small mistake, it was supposed to be "iphone 5's"
he didn't say 5S's......a capital "S" will be used to indicate the next iphone if its not the iphone 6

actually, there are a few mistakes in many articles, which is understandable, i told that just to avoid confusion, you are free to laugh as much as you want to.......
but the biggest mistakes were found in the articles related to the new lumia phones, even the specs were wrong.....

Actually, no. Grammatically, iPhone 5s is correct. iPhone5's would indicate possession.

ex: Johns: more than one John
John's: indicates that something belongs to John

exactly, i know that, but if u read the entire article, its written that
Apple sold about 4 million 4S's(actually, it should be 4Ses)
so it would be 5's
its wrong but it will avoid confusion......

Perhaps the reason why apple didnt call the iphone 5 by its realistical title of the iphone 4ss. The grammar errors and confusion would have siri scratching her virtual head

You can actually use an apostrophe to show the plural of a single number, so both 5s and 5's work.

Apple has yet will do it again: sales will reach peak high, people will be lining up, shares have rised to 700, & will rise, there will be 1 word all over the world, the iP5. This changes everything, & will conquest, while others will forfeit. We all over the World, the fans, users, Royallys, thanks Apple once yet again! And thanks PhoneArena to.

This is just stunning! Apple have killed all the survivors. With all the free cash they have got(and counting), my proposalt to them is to buy all the mobile sector, including LG, Samsung, Moto and Nokia and be over with them all! :)

Shino, they are sure trying, because they know their phone does not compete with the samsung galaxy s3 and what moto is going to be coming out now that google owns them. The end of the iphone era is well underway ;)
The same old people buy the same old tired design and specs that doesn't compete with the s3's specs. The iphone 5 just got 4G, way old news, 4G has been out for well over a year now. Dual core? ha that's been out now for quite some time. You can continue to buy that old technology Shino but I'll keep looking in awe at my beautiful 720P 4.8 inch super amoled hd screen. You can have ur woopie 4 inch non hd screen haha :p

When that happens i wont get anything apple!!!! Ill go back to usuing a homephone. Apple can not dominate the the wireless industry!! the reason why apple is so great is because they swagger jacking stuff from the other OS and putting patents on stuff that don't belong to them!! i bet you didn't know that event ho apple has its on software the UI they have was Samsung's to begin with why you think they in such an uproar over Samsung that's they competition. FOR ALL THE IPHONE FANS THAT HAVE BEEN WITH APPLE SINCE THE LAUNCH OF THE FIRST IPHONE YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE AOS. THAT 5 HAVS FEATURES THAT THE ANDROID HAD OVER A YEAR AGO SO APPLE NEEDS TO CATCH UP!!!

If your talking about sales then that's an obvious. They have $40 prepaid androids now. Android has powerful devices but take away the low end devices and ios would probably surpass Android. Im curious to see how the iPhone 4 will sell now that its free.

There's not much to talk about when it comes to the iphone5 except how much its selling.

It's because it's old news, same phone with the exception of an upgraded processor and 4g and screen which all has been done over the past year with other phones. There's nothing new and exciting about the new iphone. The galaxy s3 blows it away!!!!! Wait until you see what LG is coming out with, with the Optimus G..wait until next year when the lg, motorola and samsungs of the world have technology that apple tries to catch up with 2 years behind at least.
