Ugh! I guess if we want to be genuinely surprised during future keynotes we'll have to stay off the rumor blogs. Nothing about today's unveiling taught me anything I didn't know already. I'm not complaining about the product itself, but I would have liked to been wowed even if just a little bit as with previous presentations.

That new black model looks amazing.

Holy eff, $30 for the adapter? I know it's apple, but I would have hoped for something along the lines of $19.99 or $15.99 for a small piece of plastic. $40 for an extension cable.

http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD...30-pin-adapter

And the lightning to USB is only $20. Anyone care to explain?

maybe not hardware wise but software wise VERY lazy, what's the point of all those specs improvements when the software isnt anything special to support it. and btw this is exactly the argument everyone used to have against all those "android spec hungry nerds"

a extra row of icons, seriously? no weather or short notifications display on top. NOTHIN at all, which lets the iPhone 5 stand out more on the software aspect.

So, Apple's talk of the A6 is vague, but Brian Klug from anandtech thinks it's a dual core A15 chip.

For apple to advertise 2x CPU power they'd either have to go quad core A9 or seriously boost the core speed on a dual core A9. The latter wouldn't be good for battery life even on a 32nm process and the former seems unlikely given the fact that apple likely would have mentioned it, and it would be hard for the A6 to be 22% smaller than the A5 and have 2X CPU and 2X GPU power, even on 32nm.

For the GPU, it's less clear. It could be a 543MP4 like the 5X, or there's a slim chance it could be ImgTec's new powerVR 6 "rogue" cores.

And Apple continues to trample the competition.

It's a wonderful update filled with the type of tech needed for its application.

I'll be grabbing mine as I absolutely loathe this Razr Maxx I have now. Not because the phone is horrible but because Android OS is the most irritating, clunky OS I've ever used - aside from BB's.

It does NOT even come close to iOS and anyone who says different is A. a troll looking for attention or B. a nerd who MUST "root" their phones so they can get that "uber", "epic" wallpaper they MUST have on their phone.

While these kids spend their time fiddling around with settings and directories I'll be running my life and taking care of real business via iOS.

Question

This is sad... It is probably a great phone - but I was hoping for so much more.

Remember how long it took Android devices to catch up to the iPhone 4 display? It wasn't until after the 4S that they matched it. Now every single android phone competitor (not the cheap/free ones) has a 720p display - or better. Are we stuck with this resolution/pixel density now? Apple's idiotic idea that you can only double (or quadruple) the pixel dimensions have really put them in a tough spot.

I will most likely upgrade to iPhone 5 (from my iPhone 4) before X-mas, but I was really hoping for something better. Apple innovation was really at its peak with the iPhone 4. Everything since has just been spec-bumps. Small refinements.

And can iOS 6 *PLEASE* be the last iteration of the current "rows of icons" UI? It was tiring to see before, and a whole new row of them just looks... not better.

I guess you litigate or you innovate. And Sadly Apple is heading down the former path.

Yeah, thought this was odd, there's usually something new to download and "available today." I mean, I can wait and all, just agreeing with the observation.

well this is ******. Upgrade is Oct 7 to get the $199 price but then my ****in plan goes up from 67 per month to 90 per month. Only way to keep my plan the way it is would be to pay 649 for this damn phone. Longer term it is way cheaper but idk, maybe just stick with my iphone 4. Vz and att both suck

Don't get me wrong, it's a good phone but your list is a list of spec bumps.

- All smartphones have LTE nowadays
- Screen size was bound to be bumped up
- Maps are not a hardware feature. It was already previewed at WWDC
- Camera remains to be seen whether it'll be better. They said it was 2 f stops better but then showed pics taken in crisp light conditions which showed nothing. I want to try it out before I comment.
- Spec bump CPU/GPU and battery

I think everyone who used to say Apple wouldn't release a 4" phone (and those who said they would) made the unexpressed assumption that they were talking about a 4:3 aspect ratio. iPhone very much does not have such a 4" 4:3 monstrosity.

Knock yourself out. In 3 months you'll be selling it to a friend and trading up for the iPhone 5. But I love experiments... so keep me posted.
