    Damn straight. Don't know what people are thinking. This is TWICE the phone the 4S - and more.. The Panoramic photo feature alone is staggering.

I think then, you'll appreciate what it is quite a bit more.
    Well said. +100!!!

    Exactly! Don't get the negativity here at all...

    LOL!!!.. Nobody's touching Apple's MarketShare on SmartPhones.. Let's compare Apples to Apples. You can't compare Android to iPhone - since Android is an OPERATING SYSTEM not a device. iPhone is a device. And Samsung's S series is nowhere touchin' iPhone - for good reason: it's a toy in comparison.

    The AT&T version will only support bands 4 and 17, which means AT&T's LTE won't work outside of the US. Global compatibility used to be the only advantage AT&T had. Oh dear. Poor old AT&T...
    Ooooo. This is a game changer for me.. I haven't wanted to go Verizon - but maybe I will need to. Unless these 3rd party unlock services will be able to unlock the iP5s in quick order.

    Also - who would want to use LTE in another country and pay all those international charges anyway.. The only way to make it cost effective is to buy the iP5 'factory unlocked' and then get a prepaid SIM overseas.. But if I understand what you're saying -- having a CDMA phone, factory unlocked, would be the best of all potentials for travelling overseas.. Agreed?

    Warranty Void? What an old - silly argument. Restore the phone and even an Apple Genius can never tell it was ever jailbroken. Please......

    Not sure why you're depressed. You can get the updgrade discount pricing if you're anywhere after 11 months into your contract. They always allow discount pricing for people at least HALF into their contract. Every year it's worked this way since iPhone 2G.

    sorry, let me elaborate on what i said lol
    iOS -close source, solely open only to apple (since they created it) and no one else. so less phones made
    android os - open source - open to anyone, more companies involved in customizing and using them as there OS on there phones. So more phones being sold/made.

    But when comparing market share (which shows popularity) - you can only compare 'device to device'. You can't compare 'Android' to 'iPhone' as one is an operating system and the other is a device. Apple still sells more iPhones today than all other Android-running 'devices' combined. That wasn't the case a year ago. But it is now. And there is no 'company' called ANDROID. They don't have 'sales numbers'. LOL!!

    Exactly. Me too. My whole world is organized with iCloud and iTunes Match. I could never go to another platform now without major hassle. And I had a Galaxy -- it was a 'toy' in comparison to iPhone. Felt/Looked very cheap. OS very unstable. Not even in same category as an iPhone.

    But I also concur with your concerns about Jobs' successor. Tim seems like a nice guy. He even has the Steve 'walk' down when on that stage.. But time will tell if he's an 'idea man'. I think Apple's got maybe 'one more year' - the 5S -- before people are going to wonder - so, Tim, what NEW can bring to the table? Like how iPad CREATED a whole new device called a "Tablet". There's something NEW out there - in the way we will 'do life' and communication. And Tim Cook won't be seen as a good captain - until he 'innovates' something new. I don't care if it's someone on his staff -- Apple, under HIS leadership, will need to 'do it again'... Pull a "Jobs"... This iPhone 5 is NOT that. And the '5' was already started under Steve anyway from what I've read.

    I believe the next item or innovation will need to be step toward the iPad world and the laptop MacBookPro combining -maybe even eliminating the laptop. I don't know if any of you experience this.. but I have a 'stand up' case (folio) + bluetooth keyboard for my iPad 3 in Landscape mode and I spend so much time on that 'typing' and then 'touching the screen' - that when I'm on my MacBookPro I find myself touching the screen to move to the next object I need or for scrolling...

    That's the next 'innovation' for Apple. They need to decide how to COMBINE the tablet and the laptop - eliminating one or the other - and not be apologetic about it.. That's a feat of Jobs proportions. Or at least bring touch screen to the MacBookPro.

    A phone is a phone.. I don't see much real INNOVATION redesign coming any time soon. What else could they add?

    I know why the whiners are so prominent on here, their SIII's either stopped working, bored with them, or their blow up dolls have a hole in them so they have nothing better to do. Face it, the iPhone is a much better phone than any other out there. Go patch up your girlfriends and re- inflate them.

    And of course Apple will falsely boast about how record-breaking their pre-order and launch day sales were and how they sold out everywhere....meanwhile 4 of my co-workers will walk into an Apple store mid-afternoon on launch day....hours after opening and walk out with one 10 minutes later. Just like the 4S last year.

So should i take my car stretch it and then claim its a new car. FAIL!!!!!!!! They should have appiled the ipad 2 design curves to the next iphone not this crap. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE IPHONE 5 THIS look at those beautiful ipad 2 curves being appiled w=508&h=362&h=362

    To read all this comment about the ip5 appearance, really? How do you want it to look like? SG3, if do then just get that phone. Personally I love how to ip4 was and now the ip5 have the same design, loving more with the internal specs. I understand having the phone for awhile and it gets old and boring, but if the phone form was great why change it? I mean really I know a lot of ppl love how the ip4 look. Personally the look of the iPod touch 4th gen is ok, but I can't use that, if apple was to make the ip5 a tear drop form, I be disappointed, I held it and feels like I'm about to drop it. I have to hold it by the edges. Well Idk about the ppl tht dislike the ip5 but I personally think it's sexy. I just want to know wht do the ppl want from a phone, tht are disappointed with the ip5?

    Two pixels? Not quite:

    1,136 x 640 = 727,040 pixels.
    1,138 x 640 = 728,320 pixels.

    728,320 - 727,040 = 1,280 pixels.


    As you can see from the above proof, the difference is actually 1,280 pixels, not two.

    The discount pricing halfway through is not as much as being closer to the end of the contract. THAT is the time I'm able to purchase an iPhone, when I renew my contract. Especially with this semester, my work hours got cut more than half bc of school. That is why I'm a bit sad. I usually get new iPhones a couple months after release, this time I'm essentially having to wait about 5-6 months.

    If it weren't for iTunes and the App Store being so good they would sell far fewer phones. That's where they are better than everyone else. The phones themselves are becoming stale but once you have hundreds or thousands invested in media it's hard to stray.

    You need to learn android yourself before Helping your boss. Nothing is complicated in android.

I am so happy how well my devices work with each other, therefore I have no objections to buying the iPhone 5. To all of you "jumping ship" to the SGIII, have you not thought for one second about how your devices will communicate with each other?

    There are a few apps that allow you to still use all of the Apple things you love. My calendar and contacts still work seem less with isync for cloud and calendar. Still use iTunes with Airsync and it even syncs my music playlist as soon as my phone is on my WiFi network with out me doing anything. Pretty cool. One of my concerns was exactly what you mention. Did a few google searches and found my answers. There are quite a few apps that bridge the gap, some free and some a few bucks. For me it was just time for a change. In a few years maybe IOS will seem new to me again after Android for a few years.

    And nothing is perfect. I was one of the more then 1 million icloud users with out my email for the last two days. Just got it back late this afternoon, and I am still getting e-mails from early yesterday morning rolling in. Makes you realize how much we can become dependent on a company. Almost two complete business days with out e-mail is pretty sad. I was shocked it took a company this big almost 35 hours to get my e-mail back. Just happy it's back.

    you do realize that just kinda looks like an ipod touch right? Also if you were to look at that phone straight on guess what? it would look just like all the other iphone.. same rounded corner and home button.. i mean its easy.. if you dont like it dont buy it..

    Also do you follow cars at all? look at the mustang now and the mustang 3 years ago.. they are pretty much the same body with subtle changes. Does that make it a bad design? haha

    taking your phone to get fixed jailbroken voids your waranty.. but you can restore easily if something breaks.. Also isnt there "an app for that"? I use my iphone and ipad for work and am able to sign documents (mostly pdf's) and sign them then send them via email..

    Right. Another question for the guys in the know.

    Will we be able to trim the Micro Sim Cards down to Micro sim ? The same way we did with the Sim Card to Mini Sim.

    I take it that it is using a Micro Sim ? I used to use Nosey to cut Sim cards do you think they will be a tool for this ?

    Thanks
