To most people its not about the specs that they want to upgrade. Its APPLE Iphone 5. All the hipsters want it, and its the newest apple product and every cool kid has to have it.

I wanted an iphone so bad back then, but once i got my android i wouldn't even consider the restrictive iphone anymore.

Looks the same to me, with an uglier back. I'm really hoping the iPhone would look different from the current and previous ones.

I laugh at Fandroids. They are very attention deprived people

The new "leaks" of the iPhone "5" look good. I don't really like the lower holes where the mic is at though. Too big IMO.

I'm hoping those holes at the bottom are fake. Where are they on the existing iPhones?

It's basically the iPhone 4/S, but it's stretched to accommodate a 4'' screen. Same width, same depth, and they changed the backplate from glass to metal, rearranged the headphone jack from the top to the bottom, and changed the size of their charging port.

I bet iOS 6 is going to be revolutionary, right?

It's basically the Galaxy S II, but it's stretched to accommodate a 4.8" screen. (In regards to the S III)

What do you expect them to do? It's a slab with glass on one end and something else on the other like all of the other smart phones that have come out in the last 4 years
