    Yewww!

    Just came back from the apple store in Robina (Gold Coast) with my new iPhone 5s 32gb Space Grey and it feels amazing!!! Arrived at 6.00 am and wait for about 2.5 hours until I get my dirty hands on it! :D

    It's super fast!!!!!

    The ring from the home button is grey..

    Touch iD is ridiculous fast!

    Photos and videos are unbelievable and really cool!

    Definitely don't wait one more year for the iPhone 6..

    and good luck chasing your new iPhone!!!!

    I'm wanting the gold and am not buying today so I may be in for a longer wait than I was anticipating. Hardly used my iPhone 4 today and it's on 31% battery - sign to upgrade maybe.

    I've been messing around with the Silver today. Camera is much better than the 5. You can easily see the difference in side by side comparisons. The 5S photos are so much brighter and more crisp.

    How noticeable is the grey ring around the home button?

    I have the slate 5 now and want something different actually, haha, which is why I'm hoping the gray is pretty light. I meant color light not weight light :)

    My dream config is the black phone with the white/silver phone's aluminum parts.

    Nah, Australians are getting their phones currently.

    Nice, just ordered mine from local Telstra business centre, space grey 64gb. Just got to go pick it up now. Tried one in a Telstra shop when swapping sims and they feel much faster/smoother.

    Aussies have been getting theirs for the last 2 hours:rolleyes:
    Pays to live down under:)

    I really liked the slate. Is the grey dark enough?

    Congratulations!

    Can you please confirm that it makes phone calls? I'm assuming that it can, but the official tech specs only list FaceTime under "Audio Calling"; I'm 99% sure that that's an oversight but just worth checking before I buy one :)

    The ring is completely black. Can barely see it. It's definitely not gray like the sides/back (speaking of which is very light colour, looks pretty much like silver under adequate light, definitely making it look like an iPhone 4, which I prefer over slate). Picked mine up a couple of hours ago.

    Looks pretty dark in that picture, almost like slate. No nicks on the chamfered edges?

    It's 11.46 AM in Australia as I am typing this... is it really that surprising that they have the iPhone 5S already?

    I don't doubt you TC but would be great if you could show us your pics :cool: Makes us all even happier and excited.

    Nice. Whenever you get a chance I would like to see more angles from the front, including a close up of the home button if possible.
