I'll wait for the 5s, specially since I still have 7 more months of contract left, plenty of time to decide on a new carrier.

Maps not working
The Maps application works fine. Some users are just not happy with it because they prefer Google Maps. Bugs are few and far in between. Other countries outside of the U.S. have been the most unfortunate.
Purple lens flare on camera
According to a report by AppleInsider, the Samsung Galaxy SIII is included in phones that have his issue or an issue similar to the purple haze.
Siri not working on day one
Yellowish tint on display
When a phone is produced fresh, you get fresh glue. Glue hardens and it doesn't provide a yellow hue anymore.
Incompatible with "ALL" of your accessories
And what about those Bluetooth accessories? The iPhone 5 still has Bluetooth. Not to mention a $30 adapter will make it work with most old accessories, but once accessories are updated for the new connector the iPhone 5 will work with them and older iPhones won't. I don't see cassette tapes working with CD players either, but no one complains about that. New technology replaces the old; out with the old, in with the new – when has this ever been frowned upon?
Just a note: Samsung Galaxy SIII wouldn't work with any of my accessories either .

For any basketball fan it can be likened to the Lakers and any other NBA team (I know I know, Lakers fan here but any basketball fan will agree). You either love the Lakers or you genuinely hate them. Most other NBA teams you like them if they are your team but others don't really have feelings towards them either way. If something happens to the Lakers it's national news, something happens to another team it doesn't quite have the same news appeal.
Everything is always blown way out of proportion with Apple, good things, bad things, doesn't matter. People want to know about Apple products, they need to know, whether or not they love it or hate it. Apple matters, people like jOnGarrett just prove this point. A total android fan but feels the need to continually come on an Apple site and bash them.

About the aluminum back on the iPhone 5 ? Apple make great products but, I can't believe, with all the great materials out there. Who in their right mind would choose aluminum for the case. After a month or so of use, it will look terrible from scratches.
