I'll buy the iPhone 5 probably but Apple could have done more. Plus considering they spent so much time previewing things they showed at WWDC and recapping what they covered showed how little they had to bring out this time around.
Yeah, they could only manage
thinner & lighter
more battery
faster smaller far more powerful CPU/GPU
larger screen
better screen using less layers
better camera
their own mapping solution
worldwide LTE and faster wifi
and the list goes on

what a bunch of lazy cnuts Apple are...

Nice update for a nice phone, nothing exciting though.

Looks boring - sales of the S3 probably just got a bump.

NFC, card slot, more storage, 3D, haptic feedback, augmented reality, lots.

I think most of the disappointment including my own is because the rumors were true this time and almost all of them. It's like going to see the Usual Suspects for the first time knowing who Keyser Soze is. It's still a good movie to watch, but it's not as mind blowing.

So now I'm thinking about the fact that my wife & I still have unlimited data originally offered by AT&T... will I get to keep that when I renew my contract for the subsidized price?

Ditto. I like the new black\slate. I also have a first release 4, so this will be a major upgrade for me. I'm GLAD they didn't make it any bigger too. I need a phone that fits my hand, and fits in my pocket, without feeling like I have an iPad stuck to the side of my head, LOL.

Will I pre-order? Probably not. I'll pick one up at my local Apple store sometime after the excitement dies down.

Underwhelming

I think Apple is taking it easy because of their position. They still would see lot of iphone 5's. But personally i am dissappointed with iphone 5. I have an iphone 4 and waiting to upgrade. But now i might be upgrading so Galaxy s3.

so can you pre-order the iPhone through the apple store if you're upgrading? or do you have to go to your carrier's store?

Everybody said wait until the iPhone5 is announced before getting a phone and I did. Now I'm not gonna lie, the GS3 is the overall better phone.

Apple needs to step their game up quick!

The back of the white one looks AWESOME.

The A6 is what sold me. No desire to use Android or Windows.

They really should stop with these hyped up keynotes.

Each iphone upgrade will be a little better here and a little better there.. we get it. Just put on display.. we'll buy it.

But enough with the theatrics.

Apple blew it with the default wallpaper for iOS 6. It's not that bad on the white iPhone 5 but looks lame on the black one.
