This phone is iconic! Bigger than specs and innovation... Apple has done it again... Clearly not the best phone on the market but DAMN they know how to get people to buy it! #props

I remember the same madness during World War II; an evil dictator blindly followed and supported in fear of repriSal.

Apple hater's remind me of those crazy Muslims reacting to a movie. It's just a phone.

The 4th video is Covent Garden in London, England, not Italy. It just has an Italian talking..... That doesn't detract from the fact that all the people in all of the videos need to find better things to do with their time

I waited in line for the IP4 and it was pretty fun. However i ordered the 4s online and let it ship to me because I didnt want the hassle. I skipped the 5 all together and decided to wait and see what else was coming. Im on Verizon and was hoping for a really good wp8 phone and of course I am very intrigued with the Note 2. However if I was going to get the IP5 I don't see what the big deal is if these people want to stand in line. It is 100% their choice. Anyone who judges them for it is wrong.

makes no sense to me why you're treated like a celebrity about a phone that other companies already have when it comes tonew features (larger screen, LTE-connectivity, faster processor). They can keep all of that hoopla while i look forward to the Note II

I don't understand why people get so mad when people try to point out how much better android is than ios. It's not that we are trying to bully everyone into getting an android phone, its because so many people are so brainwashed into thinking that the iphone is the only phone. When I show my GS3 to friends, even though they are bombarded with GS3 commercials, they are still unaware of how many more things you can do with high end android phones. As a CS major, my ios friends are amazed at the fact that you don't need to jump through so many hoops just to create and export apps. The only thing iOS has going for it is the fact that absolutely anyone can figure it out and that I have to admit, it is still currently smoother than the latest android phones but it is lacking in the features department

I don't care who you are, ANYONE who waits in line for a damn phone, Apple, Android, WP or whatever. You are a sad, pathetic excuse for a human being, please get a life. I weep and fear for what society is becoming.

WHo are the bigger douches. The people cheering for the people who bought a phone or that douche who raises his arms in victory for buying a phone? Not sure.

The news coverage and consumer videos on you tube about lines for a droid or galaxy are awesome. It's amazing how much coverage there is, Oh wait it's apple. Since nobody in the media or news stations care to show up at a store when a Samsung releases. APPLE WINS AGAIN.
