Just another snorefest that has iFans in a uproar to replace all their other S ame devices with newer S ame devices. uggh, the money that is waited could feed small countries rather than have apple bilk their customers with same S hit Different year

He's just telling it like it is. Apple will tell you otherwise....and you will believe them. You'll buy your incremental upgrade because it will have one extra feature that Apple won't allow you to run on your old iPhone even though it is powerful enough to do so, and you'll never know any better.

royalpayne, you are too funny. Not only do you raw raw apple, you raw raw all the posts that raw raw apple. You arrogant, ridiculous, iFollowers are something else :/ How many S hits does apple have to produce before you guys realize you have spent your life savings on basically a iPhone 1 that has a higher number and a S on it. Apple makes the least amount of changes yearly to save and make them the most amount of money and you guys line up like S heep but worse you praise them on websites such as this one like they are gods :/ :/

I dont know why people like you cant see the success of apple. Google never did anything great yet rather than copying stuffs. I own a nexus 4 and its a shi* i think apple iphone is way better what i had before i regret

Explain why Apple has blatantly copied Apple for the last 2 years. You obviously got a defective Nexus 4 or have never actually used one. There hasn't been an exciting Apple event since 2009.

Its now a marketing gimmick that phones are leaked before the unveiling, its good for business stock prices rise. Theres no need to build anticipation now, iFans would buy a brick with an Apple Logo. The main thing is how to get your share prices up and steal your money while you drool at the same design since iphone 4. An Iphone costs less than 100$ to make, yet it costs as much as 800$ to buy, pretty hefty premium that needs a bumper cover as soon as you open it from the box. Lets just wait and see shall we

Let's Go iFRAGMENTATION!!! if you have an iPhone 3G or 3GS you won't be getting the lovely rAiNbow known as iOZ7.

If you still use a 3GS, you need a new phone. Holy crap that thing's almost as old as the entire Android OS.

Not bad at all..... The optimizations made by apple are matched by none,,,, The camera is excellent, the battery is now beefed up and superiorly optimized for much superior timings, Fingerprint scanner is always welcome and handy... But the best of all.... The A7 chip is just revolutionary! 64-bit, twice as fast, Classy graphics and brilliant architecture... M7 chip is also INNOVATIVE... I couldnt have expected any better. Gold 5s for me! Cominf from an HTC One X user...
