    32 hours away.

    When I saw the iPhone 5 I feel in love with it. I recently became a big fan of the apple raw aluminimum design and being able to get that with a phone was really cool, expecially with the ceramic white glass. I also haven't found a Nav app I like so I'm looking forward to Apple's turn by turn navigation. I also struggled with the low light capabilities of the camera and it's nice to see a 4x improvement over the last version. Finally I ran a lot of technical apps that took processing power and they were slow so seeing a doubling in performance is welcome.


    Is anyone else really looking forward to the phone? If so what features do you want the most?

    I'm quite excited indeed. I'm looking forward to the speed and the screen(size).

    Just curious, what CPU intensive apps did you use? I like pushing my hardware. Thanks.

    Well the hardware first and foremost. It really is in a class of its own. Followed by the camera (i'm a photographer coming from the 4, so this is a jump for me) and siri. I've never seen siri used in real life so i'm pretty excited for that. Oh yeah, the whole better service, LTE stuff is a nice touch too.

    Financial tracking apps.

    I almost forgot about the screen size and LTE.

    I guess nobody else is excited besides us 3.

    23 hours left.

    Is it 10:30AM yet?:D

    My iPhone is scheduled to be delivered by 10:30AM on Friday.

    I will NEVER sell my old iPhone before a new iPhone is in my hands ever again! This flip phone sucks!!!!:(

    I'm really looking forward to the speed bump from my iPhone 4. And the camera. And turn-by-turn... Can't wait!

    But I do recognise it is but a phone, and I'm just expecting improved performance, not miracles.

    I can't wait. Unfortunately I won't get it until I get home tomorrow night. And even then I've gotta call/visit AT&T to do an upgrade swap. I'd like to leave earlier, but I'm giving blood in the afternoon at work.

    I'm very excited! It will be my first iPhone ever. The two things I'm looking forward to most are using Siri, and the camera. I have a feeling that at least initially, I'll be spending more time talking to Siri than I do talking to most "real" people. :eek: And the camera will be a massive upgrade from what I have now on my HTC Incredible 2 (which by all rights does have a pretty decent camera). The hardware is of course an obvious plus as well.

    I just hope I'm able to get one at the store tomorrow!

    Heh. That's why I waited. I can bill the new phone to my VZW account in a week or two if not sooner. Sell my 4s and put the cash towards the next vzw bill before it is even due.

    But most importantly, I won't have to roll with my antiquated BB Curve in the interim. :)

    Same here. I've been incredibly excited for i5 but somehow IOS6 dampened that a bit.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm still looking forward to it but I was pretty disappointed by the buggy IOS. :(

    Beyond excited! I've been struggling with my HTC Evo for almost 2.5 years...Thought about the 4S last year and waited...it's been a painful year.

    I'm super excited. I can't wait to get home from classes and get my hands on that beauty. This'll be a great upgrade from my aging iPhone 4.

    I honestly just can't wait to have a operable home button.
