    So I got a case in the mail today ($3.95 shipped, they have tons of colors (edit:black has gone up $3)) and although I don't have the phone yet holding the case, I must say it doesn't feel any bigger! I'm quite excited, the bigger screen is more than welcome now.

    I'm not too surprised, since the width is the same and we tend to hold the phone by the sides.

    Lol. That video was hilarious. Really though, we all know it's the same width but you'd think something about it would feel bigger... it really doesn't! I'm stoked as this was something I feared I'd have to get used to. :apple:

    Same width and lighter means if anything it might feel "smaller"

    You got a CASE, not a phone. Nobody cares. People already have iPhone 5 cases.

    Could you post a picture of the case in your hand and next to your iPhone 4S?

    Yea. Seems pretty obvious to me. And, your case is empty.

    Its weird that the OP is worried that a bigger phone would be a less usable product. Yet he puts on a case which makes it a bigger phone.

    It just seems backwards to think that if it were any wider it wouldnt work when in reality the thinner design would've made the slightest width changes unnoticeable. Especially to case/bumper users.
