I'm truly disappointed. I'm a true Apple fan. I have had iPhone 4 and upgraded to the 4S, saw no visible changes. now I'm looking at the iPhone 5 and i thinking i must have been a dummy for waiting this long.

being a true Apple fan & having both the iPhone 4/4S why would you expect a major difference? keeping the shell relativity the same but tweaking what's under the hood has always been Apple's practice.

Its not about design if you buy a phone for the look you stupid its about features, battery life, screen resolution. the things that will actually make the phone usable. a phone could look like s**t but be the best phone mankind has ever seen

Not really that impressive. It looks like Apple is lagging also no NFC? Dumb move. I do like the solid back moving away from the glass but I didn't see anything about a stronger screen. Are we still going to smashed up iPhones? It is a positive step and it will sell out because it is an Apple product but nothing in there is impressive.

Just overall not impressed. I'ts the I-phone 4 and 4s with LTE (Late to party) a 1inch bigger screen (late to party), and the A6 ( pretty good). I think I have been spoiled by android, I just don't see a huge redeeming value for people to jump from there 4s to the 5 (Maybe 4). Gotta admit I am somewhat bias though because I never liked the closed ecosystem for the I phone. I think samsung will nail them on the LTE patents though.

I just realized. If people thought sprints network is bad now....Oh Boy! is it going to be boggled down when the I-5 launches on there network. It will be interesting to see.

If compared to the upcomming Xperia V then is a big MEH.

i am deeply inlove with the new iPhone!!! but hate that it really looks like the leaks!!! even though its nice, but it dont give me "Jaw-dropping" experience like the S3 (not even a fan of samsung and android)

but really glad that they agree for a taller iPhone.. but still wishing a bit taller and wider like 4.2"

haters gonna hate but i really like it! very compact build!! now im getting a lumia and an iPhone..

but i wonder why iPhone dont have the joyful color like the iPod touch and nano? maybe it will make it s ovious that they "get inspiration" from nokia lumia?

i think lumia 920/820 and other WP will be pissed coz iPhone's now ready to ship and will "conquer" the mobile world again..

i feel bad for nokia and microsoft!! i wish that these lumia will be ship on september!

i dont see anything that surpass androids.
or anything that could be hard appealing.

iPhone 4s atleast had something called SIRI that made competition,
wat this iCopy 5 phone could do?
