Just got the new iPhone 5 released today. Bigger screen, better camera, very responsive, and super fast 4g speeds. Here's couple pix. The screen shot is a speedtest using Verizon 4G network.

Awesome!!! Looks very very different from iPhone 4;) 2 color back panel will tell everyone you have a new iPhone;) I think 1 color was kinda nicer, but time will tell;)

I definitely didn't get the phone for the looks. I had the iPhone 4 and it was getting sluggish. This one is noticeably much faster. The network speed is faster than my home network at 18mb/s. Makes browsing the internet so much smoother. Many new features that I haven't had a chance to mess with yet.

Should have gotten the Samsung S3 instead...much better phone..and this is coming from a guy who owns 3 iPads.

The iPhone 5 is definitely and improvement over the 4s though.

Waiting for Nokia 920. Bored of my iPhone... Same thing and lots of restrictions. Try to edit excel or word file for example;)

Anyone with an iPhone can upgrade over the cloud to os6, has over 200 updates plus the new 3d maps and navigation.

Takes about an hour with good wifi connection

Trade your old iPhone 4 in at Target and get $158 towards a new one. If your contract is up the upgrading and the $158 towards new phone means you get the new one for $42. I bought 4 by the preorder method but unfortunately Apple took care of their own stores instead of making good on all the preorders.

Ugh more iPhone haters lol not another war between droid fanboys. I do admit droids have more appeal but to me I can't keep up with which one is which and who's it made by?! And my other problem is that for my taste they almost seem too customizable and difficult to use. iPhone could be considered boring but it's simple and does everything for me. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, haven't touched a droid in over a year and i don't believe I even know anyone with a droid...

lol not a war against iPhone and android, but some people claim that apple is so awesome but they don't know ****, it's popular for whatever reason but the samsung SII was compared to the iPhone 5, now the samsung has the sIII which slams the iPhone major, and all you guys who want a badass phone trust me and wait and hold you upgrades till end of November for the SAMSUNG NOTE II (2), it's such an amazing phone. Trust !!1:thumbup:

To each his own. Kinda like BMW vs Mercedes. Either one is good and has their own short falls. Just a matter of preference.

Im using iphone right now lol and was always buying iphone. And i was the one saying its the best thing out there and android sux. Till my friend bought samsung note or whatever. Its too big for me but fack that phone rocks. Iphone is good but its half the phone if u compare to android. I was amazed honestly. I thought i would never admit it. Iphone is a great phone if u jailbroke it. But u have to do that everytime update comes out thats inconvenient. Apple just doesnt let you do stuff with it. And i agree maybe its hard to figure out which android is which and maybe iphone is easier to use its only cuz ur used to it so much. I just like the look of the iphone better and everybody has it. I wonder if i can send my location to someone with iphone 5 from my 4s as apple didnt use google maps in iphone 5

android :thumbup: iphone :thumbdwn:... last month my 4s broke and was irreparable, so i bought an HTC vivid to use untill my upgrade is available on october 1st. had all the plans in the world to get an iphone 5 but no longer do i care for the iphone. ive been an iphone fan boy since i bought my 1st regular old iphone years ago... but damn i cant get over how much better my vivid is than my 4s, the vivid isnt even the cream of the crop of droid phones... my brother just got his iphone 5 and my vivid screen is still much bigger! i cant stand how little the iphone is and how little the changed it from the 4s to the 5. the 5 is what the 4s should have been. i was unaware of the note II coming out and i believe that is what i will be waiting for. as of yesterday the expected release is sometime in october.

Is anyone using the iPhone 5 with a y-cable? I want to know if the 30-pin to 9-pin adapter works with the new iPhone 5. Thanks!

The new iPhone looks awesome - I just want to wait until any bugs get worked out!

I went thru every iPhone version except the S versions. Finally a few months ago I needed a new phone since I had broken my iPhone 4 screen front and back. Still works and all just cracked pretty bad. Anyways, I got an HTC One X & I haven't looked back at the iPhone. At first the One X felt huge due to the screen size but I love it! It's a bigger screen than iPhone yet not as huge as the Note, which I couldn't imagine carrying in my pocket or using one hand to text with it. To me, its simple to use great features, thin profile, awesome screen, everything. My only thing about it is the battery life, one full charge won't even last me a day but its all good!

IPhone 5 does look sick tho! As well as the Note 2 coming out! The way I see it is that when the iPhone first came out, it had no competition. Now, there is...and it's up to personal preference. :thumbup:

Absolutely enjoying my new iPhone. Everything loads in a blink of an eye. Not even using wi-fi cause the Internet is so fast on 4G. I have unlimited data package through Verizon. "Grandfathered" in.
