iPhone 5 is Super light. Doesn't have the weight the 4s had.

    I liked the weight of the 4s, because it was just heavy enough to say "hey im sturdy!" but just light enough to say "hey i make your hand feel good!"

    The iphone 5 is so light, i feel like it might break if I put it in my pocket and sit down.. Now I know that won't happen given its alum unibody. But... just saying

    Everything else is fantastic. But I miss that "weight"

    I tend to think every new piece of gear is "off" because I get used to what I have and then after a few days I don't notice anymore.

    It's surprising how much lighter it feels considering it's just a 20% reduction. The increased size probably is a factor, too: you expect it to be heavier, not lighter. I always kind of like the heft of the 4 but I'm sure I'll quickly get used to it.

    Less weight means less force when dropped and less shattered iPhones
