  • Hilarious Video: People Tricked Into Thinking iPhone 4S is the iPhone 5


    Being that the iPhone 5 was officially announced yesterday afternoon, many have found it to be an opportune time to use the situation to their advantage.

    This morning, a hilarious video by Jimmy Kimmel (ABC) made it to YouTube where an experiment was performed asking random people on the street to take a look at Apple's new iPhone 5. Little did they know, the device was actually the iPhone 4S. Even more funny were the responses from the people asked to look at it. They not only legitimately believed it was the iPhone 5, but they made uneducated comments inferring that the iPhone 4S was actually better than... you guessed it... the iPhone 4S.

    The comments ranged from saying: the screen was bigger, the device was thinner, the device weighs less, and the device was faster. They are all embarrassingly false due to the fact that their minds were tricked into believing the iPhone 4S in the shot was actually the iPhone 5. Some even pulled out their own iPhones to compare the two side-by-side and were still tricked.

    Kimmel pokes fun at the poor souls that were tricked, stating that the iPhone 5 was announced, but has not even been released yet. This fact, along with some common sense, should invoke the conclusion that there is no iPhone 5 to be seen at this point in time, but unfortunately it didn't.

    So what was it that caused the victims to claim the iPhone 5 was faster and lighter? Several variables could have tricked them. For example, one iPhone may have been running on a cellular network that was faster than the other and gave the illusion that it was actually quicker. Maybe the fact that some of the victims were using cases on their iPhones gave the illusion that the case-less iPhone 5 was lighter.

    Was the experiment cruel or just downright funny? You decide.

    As ModMyi posted in March, Apple fans also had a hard time distinguishing between the iPad 2 and the new iPad (see more here).

      First of all, please take some English classes to learn at least basic punctuation and grammar... Or if you are still in school, keep studying so you can graduate to the 4th grade. Ask you teacher what a "comma" is, a "period", and eventually spelling. KNOWING (not nowing) how to read and write will really help you out in life! Just trying to help!

      EVERY company claims their product is the best. You think a company is going to release a new phone and say "our phone is okay, not that great though"? No. It is up to the public to decide which phone they think is the best. It is clear that the people have spoken...from all around the world, and have crowned the iPhone as "the best phone".

      You (and others like you) may disagree, but this is the simple truth. The iPhone is the king of all phones, and it will continue to be with the iPhone 5. Apple didn't crown it the "best phone on the market"...the bazillion iPhone owners did.*

      *Not a accurate number of iPhone owners.
