    Not sure what I was expecting, but I'm not as blown away with it as I hoped to be. Have to wait for some full reviews showing/explaining all the new stuff in detail before I make any final judgments.

    I think it'll be a hard sell for 4s owners to trade up, but being a 3s owner... seems like a nice upgrade to me.

    Agreed. I'm going to stick with my 4S, but I'll get the 5 for my wife. She needs the upgrade.

    ^THIS. As someone who recently got 4S I have no desire to trade up (although I can't do that for 2 years, but still). Having a bigger screen is not an incentive to change your phone. Heck in a couple of years Galaxy phones may be more attractive to me than a 5G/S or whatever Apple wants to call their 2014 phone.

    I'm still not sure why it's the iPhone 5. It's the 6th iPhone!

    I can't upgrade till 2013, so I should be back with Apple through the 5S. Hopefully they release it in June, doubt it, but I hope they do.

    Looks good, but my 4 works just as well. I'm digging the durability factor, though. The aluminum back is reeeal nice.

    cause if the just went from 4s to 6, it'd confuse a lot of people. Going from iPhone to iPhone 3G was less confusing as it added 3G.

    give android a try.. i was loyal to apple until the 4 dropped.. thats when i realized that they are doing jack shit and charging you the same price for the same vanilla..

    iphones are crutches for people who want a smart phone but have no idea how to actually take advantage of what they can do.... sorry its the hard truth..... (would rather say its a smart phone for dumb people lol) =]

    let the flamewar begin!!!
