    Every single rumor was true. No big surprises. Just wideband audio and an A6 processor which doesn't seem to be quad-core. No NFC.

    The big features are...panorama mode. Great.

    I'm fine with the design and look of the phone. It's the features I feel are lacking a little...

    1. The specs of the A6 or any A-class SoC are never revealed. Its after teardown that we know for sure.

    2. Keynote isn't over yet.

    There is still an opportunity for a "Just one more thing" announcement.

    Since I don't have LTE it doesn't do much for me. Biggest thing I'd be excited about is the connector(Thunderbolt!!) and screen. But that's not enough to get me to upgrade in the middle of my contract. I'll just wait for the 5S. If I had LTE in my area though I would be buying it.

    I still hate the two tone back.

    DEF not disappointed. All the leaks were correct. The iPhone 5 feels complete now.

    I agree, I mean panoramic? I have had a panoramic app for about 2 years. WP8 is looking better than ever IMO

    It is a sexy looking phone though

    no what i mean to say was to generalize. No company can ever satisfy its customers or potential customers its always 50-50 people either hate it or they love it.

    The new iPhone was worth it for me. I mean what more can you ask from a phone? Improved screen, improved radio (LTE now available ), superb battery life, thinnest phone, Aluminum back (except at the top and bottom), a new A6 chip that offers twice the performance of the A5 chip, better AR, oh and did I mention native iOS 6 support.

    1) If it were quad-core, they would have said quad-core. Apple will never pass up that marketing.

    2) There's not going to be a one-more-thing for iPhone. The shipping dates and pricing have been shown. It's over, Johnny.

    The problem with making a poll right after a keynote is lots of people are disappointed due to unrealistic expectations (regardless of what iPhone it is) but they feel different after they sleep on it. A poll taken a few months from now would yield a much different result.

    Well it is LTE, which drains other phones quicker.

    I've had the iPhone 4 since it came out over two years ago, so this is an amazing upgrade for me. And my area just got LTE coverage...so yeah.

    Apple has.. with the iPhone 4.. took on the majority by storm. Relative to other keynotes, this one appears more low tune.. for the iPhone at least. Im sure the non-iPhone part is going to be the exciting part.

    I'm am excited about the A6, thinner glass (better touch) and the increased color saturation.

    watched the original iphone video earlier today with jobs saying how their phone is 5 years ahead of anything out at the time. iphone 5 is probably 2-3 years behind android at this point...
