How many iPhone 5's do you see out in the wild now?

Compared to the 4/4S? Since about a month after launch I've started seeing more 5's pop-up, it was rare to see one in my area but it's becoming more common now.

And before anyone posts that this thread contributes nothing, so the hell what lol.

I see more iPhone 4/4S by far than anything else.
Rarely saw an iPhone 5 up until about late November. I guess that's when supply finally caught up to demand and most stores now have them in stock.
I'm starting to see galaxy S3s on a consistent basis now too. First time that's happened with an Android device.

I probably see as many GSIII as iPhone 4/4S

iPhone 5 third most popular

To be honest though it's hard to tell since most people use cases and without a ruler it's hard to tell the difference between the 4/4S and 5


A course you can try to spot a lightning port, new grill, or placement jack


I work at 59 and Park so maybe I see more iPhone 5 compared to others since the 5 Avenue store is right by me

I never saw one up until the day I decided to buy one. I asked a guy in work who has a black one and his girlfriend has a white one. I looked at them both and thought the black was slightly nicer in its own way and went ahead and bought one after seeing there was no obvious wear after a few weeks of ownership. Now I've seen quite a few out and about and a friend just got his with his bonus pay over Christmas. I'm very happy with it!

Couple kids in school. Saw a white one yesterday.

99% is iPhone 4/4S.

Most people don't upgrade ever year.

I saw some in school too. They're probably early verizon iPhone 4 adopters or had an iPhone 4 since june/july/august/september/october/november 2010 if they have an iPhone 5. I just can't see the average teen figuring out the upgrade a line and swap them trick.

I've seen less than 5, college student so that's probably why lots of my friends got the 4s a few months before the 5 so they are stuck with those for now

From a distance (and also due to cases) it's difficult to tell who has an iPhone 4/4S or a 5. But I would probably say that the 4/4S is way more common. Then I would also say GS3 is second most common. iPhone 5 comes third in terms of popularity. But maybe that'll change now that Christmas has passed and also stores have it in stock.

In my place, I'm shocked to see a lot of S3 and Note 2. Almost everybody is using them and most girls I saw is using a Note 2. The Iphone 5 is rarely seen and 4/4S is holding on but just barely

I see a couple of iPhone 5 in public, i would say its a little harder to see. way more iphone 4/4s though. A LOT of Galaxy s3,s2, and Note 2. It seems the galaxy s3 is everywhere its become the most popular. Even at work most of my coworkers including me own Galaxy s3's and I hear more coworkers are planning on buying an s3 soon.

They're cheaper? Aren't they?


On topic.
I was going off to upgrade and I already had in mind, I was getting an iphone because I was paying for it. I got a 4s because they didnt have any 4. I'm glad I got the 4s for multiple reasons, but for 100 dollars more i could of got a 5 and I didn't. :/

I'd buy the iphone retail for 600 I think, but that's an obsured price.

My friend got one the beginning of December. That has been the only one I've actually seen/used with my own eyes since it came out. I usually see 4/4s, and tons of Droid Razr's.

I got my i5 the first day it was available (via preorder).

Most of the iPhones i see are 4 or 4S. I see may be one or two (at most) a day.

I was in Korea last month and everyone was drooling over my iPhone 5 as it is not yet available there.

After having had i5 for over three months now, I can tell the difference very quickly. 4/4S look more square than i5.

I have only Zagg shield on both front and back, so it is basically "naked". Looks great. But I have to be a bit careful with it.
