Here's the world's first iPhone 5 owner

0. phoneArena posted on 21 Sep 2012, 02:18

Queuing for the newest iPhone has become more of a marketing stunt than anything else, given that the first in line in most places are people who are there for promotional consideration, rather than die-hard Apple fans, and it is indeed the case with the first iPhone 5, received by Aussie Todd Foot...

This is just amazing to me. There are phones out there that are more powerful and have better advanced features, but yet we are still being fed these useless stories about who was the first to own this outdated phone. Yes, it looks nice, but it's still an old piece of crap compared to the rest of the phones. Apple has now resorted to copying everyone else to keep up (pull down notifications) and has even ditched great software with their own HORRIBLE software to "prove" they can do it on their own (google maps), but yet they continue to be put on a pedestal by the media. It's amazing how blind the media and people are to the reality.

everyone here hates iphone, but still compares their best of phones (Note 2s, EPIC 4 and S3s) with it, hence iphone is gaining more popularity. now just imagine. this device which u refer to as icrap which implies garbage, u r spending time to compare it with ur fabdroids, so who is the looser here, iphone or an android fab phone ????? i m not a hater or a lover of ios or android, but just saying.

It would be hilarious if he broke it in front of all the lemmings and recorded the whole thing on an android or windows phone.

It would be cool to say you were the first regular Joe to get the iPhone 5, but there is no way I'm camping in front of a store for days/weeks on end, just to get a phone. I can't say there is anything worth having, that would make me do that. The closest I got to waiting in line was when the Evo 4G came out. I stood in line for about 30 min, and got the last one in the store.

THIS IS FCKING STUPID. First guy with the iPhone 5. Why is this big news? Some people are just plain stupid to wait in line and don't realize it's the same phone since iP4 with same home screen and same boring icons. jeezes

All this cheering for a stretched out 4s, if a Iphone 3Gs Iphone 4 & Iphone 4s can all upgrade to the IOS 6, what makes the Iphone 5 so special? nothing just the measley changes of a different charger connector, stretched out screen, not much else. So why are people so excited about this phone? I gurantee either someone will damage their phone, lose it within a couple of weeks or someone will steal it. Just a waist of money.
