    Well, if i were an Iphone fan, I'd be pretty pissed right now. Other than a nice camera, what did they add to this thing? 4g lte? Wow, we at android have had that ford a while. That's old news apple. How does it feel to be playing catch up?

    I am not advocating Apple nor am I fan. I would never own an iPhone. In their defense though they most likely won't be "data droppers" and would be stellar in connectivity. Only time will tell

    I was not particularly impressed. My girl who's been begging for an iPhone lost a lot of excitement when I showed her the announcement. Lol.

    I normally try and keep a pretty balanced perspective on this stuff, but it was definitely underwhelming.

    However, the single chip/antenna for LTE was somewhat interesting.

    I'm happy for isheep that they now get to have lousy battery life like us lte owners have had for quite some time now.

    I'm not gonna lie it looks pretty good to me and i might pick it up(yes i know its blasphemy there's nothing wrong with my gnex just curioud about the iphone really), but its basically last year's android at a higher price. And i am disappointed that it didnt include NFC. I kinda wanted the iphone to have nfc so it could spark interest.

    Here is a good question. If apple cant keep the s3 and note 2 out of the states could they lose the apple users that were on the fence. Apple will keep their die hards but seeing how much effort they put in the patent suits as opposed to innovation i think apple is finally looking up at android not knowing what to do. Also looks like they missing the leadership of Steve Jobs.

    I wasn't expecting anything really "revolutionary" because at this point in the hardware, Apple is playing catchup. Today they caught up, though some would nitpick the screen is small, but they did indeed catch up. The new chip they got is impressive, but nothing really special that makes the new iPhone stick out.

    As underwhelming as the new iPhone is, I'm sure there are going to be a bunch of tech sites praising it as how revolutionary it is, remind me to stay away from Engadget for the next couple of days:p

    At this point why bother unless apple continues their suit then u counter. The iphone 5 to me already looks like its doa even the tech world is noticing (referring to those who side with Apple) that Apple has fallen behind. I would not spark any sentiment headlines. Just keep pushing your product.

    And I agree with PC, Apple really hasn't been the same ever since the passing of Jobs. He was their leading innovator, he was the walking brainstorm, he was their "golden hen". It seems after all the litigating, their ideas and innovations have become stagnant.

    So yes I do agree that Apple is now looking up to Android and has no idea how to counter it. They really have become less creative and instead have become more about "stopping the competition". If you can't beat'em, sue'em. Apple knows they're losing their grip on the "casual crowd"
