Am i the only one disappointed with the iPhone 5?

I have the 4S and there is no noticeable differences between the 2, hardware wise.

Of course the screen is slightly bigger and thinner but they still feel exactly the same to me....

BTW, is there a restocking fee for Apple iPhone?

So far so good for me.

The build quality is quite amazing
The speed of the processor is a big improvement
Reduction in weight is crazy
Noticeably thinner
Liking that the border is now black, versus silver before
Wish the screen was a bit bigger, mostly wider. Feel they could have easily widened it by .25" or so with no real impact in ergonomics

They have been saying it for a while now. It's not a huge upgrade from the 4S. If you have a 4 or lower, it's a better deal. If I had a 4S, I'd just wait for the 5S.

+1. I was thinking the same thing.

I actually prefer the slightly heavier weight of the 4S compared to the lighter 5. It feels much better in my hands for some reason. I am guessing it has to do with the thickness.

Just went and played with it at the apple store. First impressions… looks almost no different unless you put a 4 next to it. It's is thinner and I kinda like that.

Picked it up an I was disappointed. It's very light and has a very cheap feel to it like a plastic android phone. The build quality is on point as always with apple but… it just felt cheap.


Noticed a slight improvement on the colors of the photos taken with the 5 vs my 4s. The colors looks more true and closer to real life. The panorama was nothing special. I have apps that can do it too.

The apple maps was total garbage. I hated it so much. The 3d feature is completely pointless. It sucked at everything when compared to google maps. Until google makes a separate app for the maps I see this being a deal breaker for a lot of people.



Overall I see no real reason to upgrade if you own a 4S. For owners with the 4 or less I would say go for it. The only reason why I would upgrade is to make a profit or if my phone stopped working. My wife has a 4 so I will eventually upgrade hers.

This.

Smartphone arguments are almost as bad (and pointless) as Obama-v-Romney arguments.

Yes it should work. Currently T-Mobile is running an unlimited and unlock promo to target iphone owners.Pretty much saying there hsdpa+ network is compatible with new iPhone 5.

i am impressed with apples customer service...

i stood in line for about 3hours to get the iphone 5 and another hour while they activated it. turns out i had the first DOA (dead on arrival) iphone 5 in toronto. i was at the rogers store and they could not give me another iphone 5 because they were out of stock so the rep told me to go to apple and see if they could exchange my broke iphone for a new one.. drove to apple and saw about 850 ppl waiting in line lol... walked in spoke to a genius bar guy and he was super helpful, saw that my LCD display was fked up and gave me a new iphone 5 right away, they also helped set up my phone (icloud itunes blahblah for free)


coming from a torch2 im rly happy i got the iphone 5.

The AT&T LTE is lightening fast. That alone was worth the upgrade.

This is the exact opposite of what most other people are saying about it. I have yet to play with one in person though, and I hope that's not the case.

Both me and my hardcore iPhone fan friend of mine said the same thing when we picked it up. We went together to check it out. He's going to get it regardless but I will be waiting one more year to upgrade, unless something was to happen to my phone.
