Nope because I have a 4S which is the same
I tend to like the build quality of the 4/4S when compared to the 5 but it wouldn't stop me from buying an iPhone 5 if I had to.

Yes. I do think the 4/4S has a more premium feel.

No, read again the objection of the the abhinav7333, "freaking makes it look like a brick".

The weight of the iPhone4S has nothing to do with how it looks.

And as far as the thickness:
The iP5 is seven one hundredths of an inch thinner.
If that turns the iP4S into a brick, I will grant your premise.

If one was nitpicking, like you are, then sure. It could be argued that the 4S doesn't necessarily "look" like a break compared to the 5.

In my opinion, the 5 does make the iPhone 4/4S look, as well as feel, like a brick, because the 5 is 18% thinner and has 12% less overall volume.

All depends on what you consider a 'premium' feel.

I do miss the "feel" of the 4. I liked the glass design and the steel antenna band. I still think it's the prettiest iPhone I also liked the heft it had and the size was great for me. The iPhone 5 feels a little "cheap" to me when I take it out of the case I use. The aluminum just feels kind of "sloppy" compared to the glass. I'm not bashing the 5 by any means, but I do find the feel of the 4/4S better.

If I was your friend I would have grabbed your iPhone 5 and smashed it on the floor, then proceeded to kick you in the nuts...

Brand new iPhone 4?

They only sell the cheaper 8GB model now, and it feels different than the original IMO.

Welcome to the Apple fanboy lol. They are the same people that said the 3.5" screen was the perfect size lmao.

I personally think the i5 feels so much more better and looks much more futuristic. The i5 is all around a superior design in my mind
