Anyone who keeps up with this sort of stuff at all could spot this fake from across a room. But most people don't, so they can't.

You're not a lightning connector!

I hear what you're saying and I think most people could agree, my iPhone 5 cellular telephone / pocket computer does more than what I need day-to-day, so why get the next iteration? I think keeping up with the ever expanding OS itself would be a valid reason to upgrade to new hardware, but the latest version of iOS runs pretty great on the 4S, as well.

I have to take issue with the upgrades "not being cheap", though. My usage stats show that my iPhone is typically in my hand doing something for about 7 hours a day, and that's 365 days a year. That's over 200 hours a month!

For a device that you actively make use of nearly 50% of your waking hours, and that sits reliably on standby the rest of the time, how is the net cost to upgrade not "cheap," or at least an amazing value? Who among us wouldn't "rent" the latest iPhone for only $8/month, the same as Netflix? Because that's about what I have paid out of pocket to own every new version of the iPhone since the 3GS in 2009.

As if the current battery isn't cra p y enough.. That would be the worst battery ever in a smartphone. I was hoping to see 2000-2200 sized battery in there. Instead of enlarging battery for longer usage time they shorten it, WTF??

Yeah. The iRuler will be fixed at 4 inches.

Yep. They've also taken away the lightning connector. Yay for even MORE new accessories to buy!

Why not? It would provide iOS with a lot of storage for a low cost and make it easier to transfer files to the device.

What negative aspect is there of a SD card slot?

I don't think you understand... If you had an SD card slot, it would take up room that would probably have been used for more features or a larger SSD. SD card slots waste quite a bit of room. Highly inefficient.

Ah yes, would be a waste of space for an SSD in the iphone. Very astute.

No, I understand. The question was "why would you want an SD slot on your phone," and the obvious answer to that is "more storage space."

It had nothing to do with the phone being thicker due to the reader or the mechanism or whatever.

I rather have external storage than onboard storage. 64GB for ~30.00, you can't beat that price.

SD card slot would only be useful if iOS had a file management system.

Talk about rich kids

This isn't a fake iPhone5 !

But who knows, perhaps someone's getting ready to fake the expected low-cost iPhone and sell it in the third world before people can spot the difference.

Not necessarily. Data types such as music, videos and photos could automatically be imported into their respective apps for playback, and "send to SD" could show up as an option under the share menu...

But a more comprehensive method would be required in order to actually fully utilize expandable storage, something Apple's probably not willing to implement.
