As title suggests, is anyone experiencing that in regards to Iphone 5?
If so, please tell your reason.

You have 14-30 days to return the phone. There is zero remorse at this point at day 6 of
iPhone 5 for 100% of people who purchased the iPhone 5 cause they can still return it with little or no restocking fees depending where they purchased it.

Nope, really like it. Also, like stated above, you have a return window so it should be all good for everyone with an iPhone 5.

The phone is amazing, you shouldn't feel that way.

I havent upgraded from my 4s yet but my brother and mother already have. Black and White, White looks awesome this year and the screen reminds me of the vividness of my 3G with the retina of the 4/4s.

Its an awesome package but not much has changed apart from screen and speed over the 4s. LTE a non starter as the UK networks dont have it yet.

Coming from an iPhone 4 owner. And knowing that this entire message is being typed by my voice. I have absolutely no remorse and I very much appreciate it. Win win win win.

I am a little disappointed, I was packing up my 4S to sell on eBay and using it felt more comfortable than using the taller iPhone 5!! - I actually think it is too tall.

No buyers remorse...just thinking I should've gotten it in white. I saw one for the first time today. The edges look like they're diamond cut or something. Awesome.

It's literally a few mms longer...

That said, I love the feeling of my 5. It feels solid yet light. My 4 feels bulky and heavy in comparison. Also the aluminum back does not show fingerprints as much as glass. It's also less slippery.

Nope, just got mine and sold my 4S for $200 more than I bought my 64GB 5 for, that covers more than the cost of my additional line to get full subsidy next year.

I don't have buyer's remorse. I just miss having a jailbroken phone like I did with my iPhone 4.

If u have a 4S it's not an essential upgrade besides a little faster and taller screen. Camera is same quality. Ios6 fully supports the 4S.

If u are upgrading from the 27 month old iPhone 4 than its worth the upgrade.

I agree. It does feel awkward at times compared to my iPhone 4. I wish it had a little more width to it.

I would argue that if you have the verizon 4s the 5 is still a huge upgrade because you get LTE. At least on att you have hspa+ to tide you over while on verizon your stuck with the much slower evdo. Of course, that all depends on how much you depend on the cell network vs wifi for data.

I do regret paying £700 for a 64GB model when a mate offered me a sealed galaxy S3 with 32GB sd card for £350.

That being said, the pentile screen is ugly as hell, so I wouldnt have been happy with it anyway. As well as the fact that the app store is garbage and full of malware and spyware.

Once I get an acceptable iPhone 5, I'm sure that remorse will fade quickly.

That being said, this thing cost the same as a base model MacBook Air.....

I'll venture to say that there may be some remorse for a few buyers when this month's credit card bill comes in, but it won't be WRT the iPhone 5 itself. ;)
