    umm, yea.. it's just stretched. turn it on and it looks like the orginal iphone from 5 years ago.

    why does it look so weird.. it's tall phone on a diet.

    I heard Apple was delaying all US orders by another week to meet international demand first.

    My local AT&T shop has no line at all. Grr. I probably could just walk in and walk out.

    Instead I wait for UPS...

    Same here. Where I live FedEx is always here by noon, regardless of the day or shipping speed of the package. UPS on the other hand shows up anywhere between 8:00am and 6:00pm and usually closer to the end of the day. I will be shocked if my phone is delivered before 1:00pm.

    By the way, has anyone seen the clock in the clock app on iPad? That thing is amazing! ;)

    Bingo. This should be trending.

    Regarding the width, i feel that the next major iPhone revision; iPhone 6, will have a 720p (80 pixel increase) screen with the width increased just a bit.

    I've had mine for a few hours, dug up my old account to come and post that I do love the speed increase (coming from a 3GS) and it is delightfully thin and light, I have found it getting hot under LTE use, hotter than I would have expected but maybe my expectations were too high.

    I had the worst experience here in Australia, I had to drive someone else to a shop so he could buy a new iPhone :(

    So I got to wait around for 3 hours and all I got was over priced coffee!

    The reason I didn't get the new iPhone today. I have a PPC G5 Mac, been waiting since May for Apple to update the iMac to Ivy Bridge spec. Like always you need the latest iTunes to sync with the new iPhone and now that requires Snow Leopard and that only runs on Intel powered Mac's.

    Come on Apple, enough with the iPhone what about updating your desktop AIO?

    I LOVE how people call us 'fanboys' when 16.9% of the world is iOS, and Android has 68%. Mad because we love a solid, stable product that has updates?:eek:
