I prefer Apple's music player app over anything I've found on Android over the 2 years I had the Evo 4G. Nothing else ever felt right. Not to say the Apple music player is perfect. I just feel it's better than anything I've used on Android, which is one of he big reasons I got an iPhone last year.

What exactly are you guys expecting that are disappointed in this update? Are you really expecting the gigantic leap that occurred with the initial iPhone and later Android phones relative to the existing, archaic Blackberry and Palm devices?

In case you haven't noticed, new phones are released every month that are not drastic departures from the models they replaced.

I cannot say this update will make me order the iPhone 5 since my contract is up for renewal, but I am really trying to figure out what you guys were expecting. I'd love the S3 but I am concerned about its Exchange functionality/reliability, so I will likely just stay with the iPhone 4.

When the iPhone 4 was leaked, I was disgusted. But when it was released, I was amazed.

When the iPhone 5 was leaked, I was disgusted. But when it was released, I was even more disgusted.

Come on Apple, where's the true innovation? Just adding a few more pixels to the display and supporting LTE doesn't make it a killer phone.

yeah I like the music player better and the iphone integrates better with stereos( I can use the buttons on the one in my car to change songs, with the s3 I have to use the phone which is a little annoying) but I think android has more features and google search in jellybean looks just as good as siri.
I also like having a memory card slot which the iphone should have implemented by now

This is a very solid update for anybody who has iPhone 4 or older. Battery life improved. CPU and graphics 2x as fast. Camera improved. Thinner, lighter, bigger screen. Why are you people hatin'?

I for one, will be upgrading from my 3Gs which I've had since launch day in the UK. Just have to wait and see what coverage EE will provide and what pay as you go tariffs they will offer. May not be a worthy upgrade for a 4s owner but for me, it'll be awesome!

Thank God all these rumors can be put to rest. The iPhone 5 is here and all these rumors can stop. There were so many rumors it was getting crazy.

Umm...Any rumors on the iPhone 5S yet?

And here come the haters that appeared when iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G were introduced.

Tim, good job on the secrecy thing. I had no idea the black version would have an anodized back.

Seriously, though, I like the phone. I may upgrade.

I agree. I'm looking forward to ordering one. The screen all by itself seems pretty remarkable with all it's features. Combine that with the A6's processing power and iOS6...it's gonna be awesome :-)

Literally the only thing I would have liked better than this would have been an iPhone 5 in an iPhone 2G's body. But that's just me.. lol

I'm disappointed that Apple really is calling it, the 6th gen iPhone, "iPhone 5." I'll probably get one anyway though :-/

The black looks so nice now, I wish the white had white instead of raw aluminum. I don't know which color I want now, which is going to probably end up being a big problem and i'll feel like i made the wrong decision either way.

man.
