iPhone 5 Review - Want An iPhone 5?! Then You NEED To Read This!!

Not An iPhone 5 - Just a picture to make the hub look pretty

The NEW iPhone 5 Is Released THIS YEAR

Are you as excited about the release of the new iPhone 5 as I am? Probably not, because I'm the one writing this hub and you're the one reading it (hopefully). I hate to admit it but somehow I've managed to become one of those Apple fangirls that you see walk into the Apple store and spend 30 minutes asking the employees all sorts of uber geek questions.

For one reason or another I've taken it upon myself to find out as much as possible about the new iPhone 5 so that I could spread this knowledge. What do I get out of it? The benefit of knowing I'm helping rid the world of lesser non-Apple phones (*cough HTC Evo cough*).

As if the iPhone 4 wasn't groundbreaking enough, the iPhone 5 is going to revolutionize the world of cell phones. Here's why:

One of the biggest benefits of owning a new iPhone 5 is that it'll come with dual core processors that will make it load at super fast speeds. Not only that, but it will be incorporating even more powerful graphics chip cards, which will provide you with better video and still images. As if the 20 gigawatt gazillion megapixel already in the iPhone 4 wasn't enough...

Right now it looks like the new iPhone 5 will be running on a 4G network (instead of the usual 3G). That means that some of the most likely network carriers to get a plan under are Sprint, T-Mobile, and maybe AT&T and Verizon. But we've all heard a lot of complaints about AT&T's network in the past, so I'm not sure how many people would opt to go with them for the new iPhone.

In fact, one of the reasons behind the increase in Jailbreaks of the iPhone 4 was that AT&T's network had way too many problems with it. Rather than deal with AT&T a lot of people ended up jailbreaking their phones instead, a fair deal considering you can get free ringtones, themes, and apps when you jailbreak your phone.

Also, anyone who says Android based cell phones are going to be able to compete with the new iPhone 5 are completely delirious. They won't even come close to the capabilities offered by the new iPhone when it comes out.

If you're thinking about buying the iPhone 4, you'll be better off waiting for the iPhone 5 instead, as it should be coming out really soon this year. Here are some of the expected features:

  • The new iPhone 5 is expected to have Face Recognition Security so that you don't have to worry about other people stealing your phone and trying to use it... That is, unless they steal your face too. (Anyone seen Face Off?)
  • Video Chat on a 4G network instead of a slow 3G one
  • Much nicer overall body design of the phone. It's going to be even thinner and have a shiny black piece.
  • Shatter Resistant and Scratch Resistant Screen
  • The lowest model will come with 32G of space and 64G of memory. I'll be able to store my whole computer on the lowest model of the iPhone 5. Yippeee for me.
  • Longer Battery Life - Up to 14 Hours of Talk Time On The 3G and 7 Hours on the 4G. With 14 hours of talking to my girlfriends, I'm only going to have 10 hours to sleep =(
  • HD Audio - The quality of sound is going to be extra crisp.
  • Built In GPS - You'll never get lost or have to download one of those stupid GPS apps.

How much will the new iPhone 5 cost? I can't speculate on that, but I'm going to assume it'll run you over $500. It's definitely going to be worth it though, and I can't wait for it to come out.

I'll definitely be buying the iPhone 5 when it comes out, the iPhone 4 I have now is amazing and it's so much faster than the iPhone 3.

I'm sure that this new one will be amazing, I'm hoping it can finally support FLAC audio files.

Wow. You are the reason people hate Apple. I use Apple products almost exclusively, but your statement about Android is one of the most ill contrived assumptions I've ever heard. Get off your high horse and accept the fact that there are other phones that can compete with the iPhone (The EVO included).

Dee 5 years ago

Well, im sure the initial Iphone 5 will be better than iphone 4 BUT, with all new designs there will be problems. I got the I4G and its nice with its issues...so, ill pass on the 5G and wait for the 5GS to come out. You know it will have the tweaks more resolved by then.

Apple - Morden day crack dealer. ,,Keeps on coming out with new product, that you just can't wait to try..

Create a need, then get you hooked...

I wonder what would happen if i had a phone fast..

would i really miss it that much..

enjoy, have fun, and .....

Mostly crap.  5 years ago

Well like 90% of this is pure shit. The only things that are reputable here are that the iPhone 5 will have "a new form factor" (or something like that) so it'll look cool. And NFC which you didn't mention. As one of the chris is gay-ers said android does alot of this (nexus s I believe has NFC). iPhones do have an advantage over android just because it's apple. Guarantee when apple adopts NFC it'll explode and you'll be able to pay for almost anything with just your phone.

honest question

Ive only had android phones, but i am considering purchasing the iphone 5 when it comes out. The only problem i have is with flash.

ive read that without flash, one would not be able to access many websites.

how does iphone solve this problem

Yippeeee! Can't wait for IPhone5! Thanks for the info & taking time to help inform.

Loved that u r as excited as me;)!


What. 5 years ago

Megapixels are used to measure camera image resolution. Gigawatts are a measure of energy conversion. The fact that the iPhone 5 will have a dual core processor means that it will be keeping up with competition, not exceeding it (apple needs to buy its chips from somewhere and that somewhere is the same place Android-based phone manufacturers are buying from). Same deal with the dedicated graphics processing chip. The only thing that's truly remarkable about the iPhone in my opinion is the quality of materials used to manufacture the device.

Letmeout 5 years ago

Don't know about you guys but here in the UK we are tied into 24 month contracts with iPhones. Therefore those of us with iPhone 4s will have to wait another year or, if their provider allows it, pay a hefty fee to upgrade early. How much would you expect the iPhone 5 to retail at sim free? If it's more than the iPhone 4 I'm gonna be a bit annoyed especially if it is so much better. I love my iPhone but couldn't apple at least allow people with the previous model to send it back and pay a smaller price? I mean I got mine in september and if the iPhone 5 comes out in June mine will still be under warrantee. Anyone agree?

The One 5 years ago

If the Iphone 5 will not be LTE, as Apple has gone on record saying that. So, I wonder what the author of this article means by "4G"? VZW already has a LTE network, and ATT is gonna start theirs later this year. If Apple wanted to have one LTE model for both ATT and VZW, it would come next year(2012). This year's model is said to be a complete redesign, and dual core processor. Question really is, how often can you actually upgrade to the latest model of the Iphone without being forced to pay full retail?


Sjf707 5 years ago

Where did all these specs come from? Would be great if they are true, but who knows. Guess ill have to wait and see.


Nextgen 5 years ago

Not all UK iPhone 4 customers are tied into 24 month contracts, there are 18 and 24 month contract so it's up to the customer what they choose. If u choose a 24 month one then that's your own bloody fault numbnuts. And you can ask the apple people as many questions as you like cos no matter what they tell you it's bullshit. No-one knows yet what the iPhone 5 is gonna look like or have integrated into it except the people apple Pay millions to have it designed and I think it's very doubtful that anyone in any forum personally knows these designers. Remember this time last year all the shit people said was gonna be in the iPhone 4 and look what happened it was a totally different phone to wat was being reported by people who know fuk all.

Kwazzy 5 years ago from Jacksonville, FL

There is ZERO evidence of what the iPhone 5 will look like nor the features it will host. Creating a hub suggesting otherwise is lying to the public. The iPhone 4 mis-release was a huge embarrassment to Apple, and they wont be making the same mistake again. "The lowest model will come with 32G of space and 64G of memory" that does not even make sense. space is memory. And "HD Audio"? The human ear cannot even hear above 320kbps, so again, no sense made. Show your "sources" when posting some BS like this.


ammo 5 years ago

Why do all of these comparisions tend to be an all out Apple Vs HTC (or something else)? Most of the comments are from Apple lovers who are just plain excited. I have also read comments for the Iphone4, where people comment how cool it is without even owning it.

Just get real. This 'review' is biased towards Apple. It doesn't really shed any useful information, but is in fact just an article by an Apple lover looking to put down the competition.

I Own HTC, and think they have done a wonderful job. Although, it needs improvement. Apple products are very good too... and I may even switch. Im not an Apple lover, nor an HTC lover. I just go with whoever offers the best technology and bang for the buck.

As a developer, Googles Android is offering stiff competition, and it will only improve. Apples applications are very good, however there are lots of issues for Developers on what they can and cant do.

And dont forget, its only with the Iphone4 that they have even allowed multitasking (AFAIK). Lets not forget the Battery issues, and the antenna issues also. Oh and not to mention the Flash issues either.

If you are going to review something, just review it - dont drool.

Personally, I consider all options, then go for the best one. It doesn't matter if it has an apple logo, or Dell, or Samsung or HTC. Im not bothered, as long as it can do what I want it to reasonably well, and offer more technology to last me a few years. Perhaps more of you people should too.

U moron, the htc evo is way better than the dumb iphone. Bigger screen, better cameras, hdmi output, kickstand, does not lose signal when holding the phone a certain way, becomes a hotspot and is 4G. The iphone was great 4 years ago its time for a change and the evo sure did that.

Twills77, t-mobile doesn't have 4G they have 3.5G its not only the speed that counts but the technology behind it as well. Hspa+ is not 4G if it were then why would t-mobile try to bid in on clear.

The official release date for the iPhone5 is September 6, 2011. It will be priced at $199.99 for the 32G version. You will receive a 50% discount if you are gay and/or liberal and if you are a lesbian with armpit and leg hair, the phone is free. Also each phone comes Obama stickers and hemp jewelry.


Dogmadude 5 years ago

Jailbreaking[1] is a process that allows devices running Apple's iOS operating system (such as the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and recently Apple TV) to gain full access (root access) to all features of the said operating system, thereby removing limitations imposed by Apple. Once jailbroken,[1] iOS users are able to download additional applications, extensions and themes that are unavailable through the official App Store, via installers such as Cydia, one of a number of current means for older iPhones. A jailbroken iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch running iOS can still use the App Store and iTunes and other normal functions, such as making telephone calls.


Eric 5 years ago

Take a look at the iPhone 5 specs compared to it's competitors specs. Not only are they similar, but the processors, video, battery, networks, etc will all be out by march for less than half the price on the Android platform versus waiting until summer for the apple platform. Apple: Behind the curve my friends!


Jon 5 years ago

LOL, you sound so desperate to shove your opinion down everyones throat it's sad. I'm sorry you have tunnel vision but the iphone is not the king anymore. You compare the iphone 5 to CURRENT available android phones to make it look groundbreaking, yet android phones are coming out with all the things you mentioned, before the iphone 5 will even be released. Dual core processors, HD video/audio, blah blah blah, android already can output HD via HDMI but you seem to leave that out. Android has the step up because you now have dozens of companies competing to make the best android phone, which results in quicker updates to phones and always the latest technology. The iphone will never have that. The Iphone is still a great phone and it will be interesting to see the updates coming to it, BUT it is not any better than upcoming android phones so try to be a little less naïve, it just makes you sound stupid.


dale 5 years ago

Guys,my advice to you,just wait for the Iphone 15 to come out...it has more advance features...i'm sure of that...these are some features of Iphone 15,it can transform into:

1.car- while the car is running and someone is calling you,the car will automatically transform to phone.

2.flat iron

3.jet ski- same as number one..

4.baseball bat

5.faucet- when you are thirsty

6.thread mill

these are just some of the features..but there are lots more,more than you can imagine..so stay tuned..

Bob 5 years ago

I have never had an iphone but i have thought about getting the iphone 5. I think it should stay the same price as the iphone 4. $500 is too much for any phone with 2 year contract. Did apple fix the problems with the iphone 4? If they did maybe I will just get that phone when the 5 comes out. First coming out they always have so many problems.


k8monster 5 years ago

Here's the information I have for those who are interested in facts. I work in a company that uses a lot of smart phones, and I'm typically the one ordering them, setting them up, and teaching end users how to navigate the phone. Android is more versatile than the iPhone (any generation) thanks to the ability to write your own apps if you can't find what you are looking for in the store. HOWEVER, if you load a third party (not downloaded from the Android Market/not approved by Google) you have voided your phone's warranty. That means if you load an app you created and it bricks your phone, you are in the same boat as iPhone users who decided to find out if iPhones have a lighter density than water, or let their dog use it as a chew toy. You still have to purchase a new phone at full price (typically $500+) if you are outside upgrade cycle.

In my experience, the Android OS phones that seem to have the most issues are HTC and LG. Some of the models are better than others obviously, but that is part of the reason HTC tends to be a scapegoat.

iPhones are attractive because they are trandy and "just work"... except when they don't. I've had nearly every problem that can be fixed by a factory reset and many hardware defects not caused by rough handling.

Technologically speaking, iPhone is behind. They still do not have expandable memory which most smart phones have(Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Android). For instance, Droid X has 8GB on-board memory and takes up to a 32GB micro-SD. It comes with a 2GB micro SD installed, but if you decide you need more, you only have to buy a new micro SD card instead of a new phone. Many Windows Mobile phones and Blackberry's are similar even if they don't have the same max capacity (8GB on BB for instance).

The iPhone 5, will without a doubt, be a great phone, but a lot of the new functions and features you mentioned the iPhone 5 will be getting will already be not-so-new by the time it is released around summertime.

Please, look up the Motorola Atrix, which is coming out either this month or in March. It has a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB built-in storage (expandable with microSD card), 4G, 720p video recording (will be upgraded to 1080p through software update), video chat on 4G, Flash 10 support, 1930 mAh battery life (good for 8-hours talk-time), 540 x 960 pixels 4.0 inches display (1/4 HD), Gorilla Glass screen, built-in GPS guidance, FM radio, HDMI output to watch HD on TV, DLNA (share multi-media files over network). In addition, you can turn it into a netbook using a docking station. Available on AT&T soon.

Also, check out the LG Optimus 2X with similar specs. It will be releasing in the first half of 2011.

Why is anybody taking what this woman has to say as truth? She, like millions of other bloggers out there, is guessing what will be included on iPhone5. She sits back and bashes other products because she's an Apple fan. I get that. I like Apple as well but when the time comes to upgrade this summer I'll choose a product that works on Verizon's LTE network. I don't think iPhone5 will be that phone. Maybe iPhone6 in 2012?

If you ask me what did change my life completely, besides my wife and my two kids, I would say, the iPhone! Just to understand how valuable it is to me, I would say that, when I die, I want to bury with it. Going against what some people say, I want it on AT&T. It works wonderfully for me. Iphone, the most useful thing that I ever bought.

@K8Monster Ok as you seem to be one of the few with real knowledge of the smartphone Market, would you make an estimate for me, I work for a cel provider - but not directly with hardware, I have been trying to find the release date of the Galaxy S2 not Feb 13 but the date they are available for purchase. The people I know have been very tight lipped about all the smartphones coming out. I was going to do an upgrade yesterday and my friend who is in that sector said "wait" I know the LG release is next month and Iphone5 this summer what is your opinion on the time for the S2??

I love my iPhone. But I hate apple. They really are the worst company with the worst god complex. They don't trust their customers with a single ounce of freedom. Come on, how stupid do they have to be to not allow us to put custom text sounds in our iPhones?! And it took until IOS 4 to get wallpapers without jailbreaking. Oh, and the comment about the cost, off the shelf it'll probably a lot more than $500. More like $750. But since carriers will be selling them with contracts, it's almost a guarantee that they will continue the trend of $199 with a new contract for the lowest models. But even though I hate apple and their decisions, I do love their technology.


Jabingo 5 years ago

You said that the android phones won't even be able to compete? Android already has the capabilities of this fictional iPhone 5-not that I am an android fanboy, as I actually am writing this on an iPhone 4. It's just that android already has dual core processors. Ever heard of the Tegra 2? I just had to write this based on how poorly researched this article was.

While I don't prefer one to the other, the current android phones have already surpassed the iPhone 4 specs and within the month they will have already passed up the specs you speak of with the iPhone 5... and we still wont see that guy for another 6 months.. so like others have said here, while we get why you love the iPhone, don't trash talk the android with misinformation.

I cant wait for the Iphone 5, it sounds like a great phone. Do you happen to know about when it will be released? I currently have a Droid X. It is a very good phone but I have wanted the Iphone since they first come out but did not want to take a chance on the AT&T network. I have high hopes for the Iphone on the Verizon Network.

Firstly well done on a good review on a product you don't have. All my friends have a iPhone 4 but I thing I'll put up with my slow iPhone 3G till the new one is out. I expect it will be like upgrading from a comadore 64 to the latest quad core ?

The shatterproof scratch proof screen is already on the Galaxy s phones it's made by corning they call it a gorilla screen. Second the chip for the iphone 4 comes from Samsung same chip as the Galaxy galaxy S an I phone 5 rumored to be using the chip in the Galaxy S 2 by Samsung. Yes, I see how iphone 5 is better than android.

It's going to have this and that and this and that, but will it work? and if it works will the battery last longer than 6 hours? if it doesn't will I be able to replace the battery without hiring an engineer? if the batter lasts longer than 6 hours, will I be able to hear the speaker if sombody calls when there's a cricket making noise in the background? If I hear the phone ringing will I be able to finish a sentence without the phone dropping the call? I could go on, but you fanboys and girls probably don't get anything I wrote anyway.

The ATT network is currently upgrading its old 3G network to compete with the more "up-to-date" wireless providers such as Verizon and T-mobile and Sprint. However, the new "4G" network being built by ATT is more close to a literal 6G network, with double layer coverage in areas with reception. This being said, ATT is of course going to obtain the iphone 5, and it is most likely going to be the only one with capable speeds to comply with the abilities of the up and coming Iphone 5.

Louster 5 years ago

Wack!!! Iphone number whatever over rated!!.. they said the same thing about the iphone 4....Whatever!! you guys have fun until HTC drops another one on Apple's head. You see, we don't gotta jailbreak our phones to make them work..they just work!!!!!

The new iPhone 5 is expected to have Face Recognition Security so that you don't have to worry about other people stealing your phone and trying to use it... That is, unless they steal your face too. (Anyone seen Face Off?)

Really!!!!! Whatever!! Not that it matters when your phone is stolen, but you'll tell your friends that "haha, that can't use cause it has Face Recognition" plus Droid already does that, ever heard of Lookout mobile security?..Yeah!! Hot!!!!

Video Chat on a 4G network instead of a slow 3G one

Much nicer overall body design of the phone. It's going to be even thinner and have a shiny black piece.

Shatter Resistant and Scratch Resistant Screen

4g instead of 3g huh??? You mean like how the HTC Evo does it now!! Wow!!!!!

The lowest model will come with 32G of space and 64G of memory. I'll be able to store my whole computer on the lowest model of the iPhone 5. Yippeee for me.

Longer Battery Life - Up to 14 Hours of Talk Time On The 3G and 7 Hours on the 4G. With 14 hours of talking to my girlfriends, I'm only going to have 10 hours to sleep =(

HD Audio - The quality of sound is going to be extra crisp.

HD audio huh? ehhh, Whatever!! Apple will probably say it's their "revolutionary idea, but it's not, it's actually intel's. And the whole memory thing, bet ya I can swap out my 32gigs of memory faster that your iphone can, and don't even have sync my phone in any kind of way, wanna bet????

Built In GPS - You'll never get lost or have to download one of those stupid GPS apps.

Oh, this is my personal favorite!!! GPS is soo old news, I mean really, My HTC PPC 6700 with Sprint Navigation had this in 2005. I like how she says "You'll never get lost or have to download one of those stupid GPS apps"

I know she isn't talking about the Droids, cause we come loaded with Gps native and market apps.

Can't compete with Google maps and Nav even while it's in it's beta stage. isn't at&t the one that charges the extra for Nav???? That's funny!!!

well, Glad to see some one from Apple came up from under that rock and took a look at what the REST of the cell phone world is doing!!

Don't worry, we'll take naps while you guys catch up!!!!

kingjones 5 years ago

I have had every iPhone from 1 to 4 and I'm writing this post on evo 4g. Best phone I've ever had. Tether wireless connection, bigger screen, no Apple restrictions, and my phone has never froze or had any problems. It does whatever the iPhone 5 supposedly will be able to do except maybe 1080p resolution but its awfully crisp and the screen size makes up for it for sure. Who cares if its stolen and u can't use it cuz of face recognition? Ur phone is still gone. Call ur carrier and get it cut off. Same result. IPhone is more user friendly I must say, but when u learn to use Android its embarrassing Apple OS. It's abilities are endless. Jus wondering, what is 32g of "space"? 64 gigs of memory makes since. Computers don't have 32 gigs of ram. So what is this "space" doesn't make since just fyi. This article is too high on Googles iPhone 5 result list with biased info if u ask me.

Android 5 years ago

How can someone possibly say that Android phones released in 2011 won't compete with the Apple iPhone 5? The Droid Bionic as well as the Atrix are being released this year. Dual core processors, better resolutions, etc. Bias articles should never be published. Give fair reviews of both sides. This is a review, not a sales pitch (at least it shouldn't be). I too am looking to buy an iPhone 5, but also the Droid Bionic. The Android OS is just as good if not better than the Apple's iOS. It's not as intuitive because it offers so much more. It's basically like comparing the interface of a PS3 and a Nintendo Wii. I love the enthusiasm, but seriously, just review the iPhone and stop comparing apples to oranges. The iPhone is great for me due to the fact I have a iTunes library roughly over 60GB and it sorts much better than the music player on my Motorola Droid. Both have their ups and downs. Hardcore nerds (programmers/tech. enthusiasts) the Android line-up may be right for you, and casual smart phone users, the iPhone may be adequate for your needs. Either way, this is a great year for smart phones. Thank you Verizon for finally changing the phone "...that changed everything".


Cheese Monkey 5 years ago

Your review was helpful and interesting right up until the point where you said Android phones won't even come close. Then you turned in to a biased fangirl with no sign of balance or common sense. There will shortly be way more powerful Android phones (Motorola Atrix for one) than the iPhone 4, and will certainly be more powerful phones than the iPhone 5 around shortly after, if not before, the iPhone 5.

@Cheese Monkey, sure their might be, but let's be honest the iPhone 5 is going to be the best. Phones aren't all about features, they're also about ease of use... and whether or not people like to admit it the iPhone is revolutionary, while the android phones aren't!

They haven't even released when or what it is going to have so all the people saying yay these new features are going to be cool is wasting time reading this shit. They Are probably going to have like 1 or 2 features! So just wait till AT&T or verizon posts stuff about it till now stop wasting your time on non realistic blogs because there are a million of blogs who have way more different features then this shit!

Frankly the speculated new options are gimmicks for kids. More interesting would be a feature somehow automatically eliminating solicitors or phone calls initiated by people with nothing interesting to say. Another built-in feature which would have real value is pre sensing via complex data base and satellite surveillance idiots who do not speak your language and are attempting to contact you for God knows what reason. Better yet, its got to have an alcohol content measuring sensor, true flir sensor, satellite radio, inmarsat communication module, COFDM microwave Tx/Rx system, an ear and ass thermometer, heart beat sensor and body sugar level probe. For all you geeks having nothing better to do but drool over a stupid disposable appliance.

So, lets face the facts, this girl who wrote this does not know anything about the iPhone5. In fact, no one knows. I would not have any expectations yet and it is impossible to tell the price for it. There is no proof that there would even be an iPhone5, probably will, but we don't know. So don't be asking about the price or anything; trust me, no one knows!

Could this article be any more biased? I have an android phone and like it, but I have also owned the iphone 3 and 4 and like android better. Now I'm not saying I haven't had my problems with android and that iphones multifunction capabilities seem better. But both have their flaws. Don't sit there and tell me the iphone 5 will almost be "perfect". Bull****. All phones have their flaws, don't glorify just one brand, at least give me some damn useful info by comparing it to other phones, not just that one will "blow the others out". Thanks for nothing.

This is the most poorly-thought-out review by a person who has no idea what she's talking about.

You say haters are gonna hate. No, you don't get it. We don't hate you. We pity you. You're a moron. We might be angry you exist, but we wouldn't waste time hating you.

1. The Android was a million times more 'revolutionary' than the iPhone for one simple and ultimate reason.

Open Source Development on an internationally available mobile platform. You can program anything you want for it and it will run it. This creates a win-win situation for everyone. Apple didn't do anything revolutionary except make a kick-ass design and they continue to do it every year, but it's the only reason why iPhones are great. The design. The software and the development community is god-awful. Every true geek knows this.

About half of the things in this article are completely wrong and/or don't make sense. This woman has too much time on her hands and STILL didn't take any of that time to research anything she was saying.

Haters gonna hate is a way of saying, "I've done nothing wrong but people dislike me anyways, disregard them."

But you have done something wrong. You've done a lot wrong.

You're wrong. Just all wrong. And the worst part is...

you'll probably never know.

I like any good quality phone. The only thing that I am concerned here is the dictatorship of an AT&T. I was Agent for an AT&T for a while, left them because I did not like the way they run their business. Their phone packages are so little and extremely pricy it seems like they are in the business of gold and silver. T Mobile is the only carrier which has the best and the most affordable packages almost available for everyone. Their customer is terrific and its 5 stars. When it comes to carrying the latest Phones, T Mobile is limited to it and don’t have much verity for selection. It would be great if T Mobile decide to introduce the new I Phone 5 at same time when an AT&T does.

Jack 5 years ago

Ok, so could google's bitches please stop bullying the woman? She merely stated what she thinks the next iPhone will be, and to be honest I completely agree with her (with the addition of wireless payment). The reason why iPhone is so much better than Qndroid is down to branding; Apple have worked so hard over the last few years in developing this revolutionary product, whilst Android has merely slingshot off Apples success, it doesn't matter how good an Android is, it doesn't have the functionality and ease of use of an iPhone! An analogy is with cars; wouldn't you prefer to pay a bit more for a mercedes than a ford of similar spec? The extra is purely for the service and reliability that you get with Apple, for instance last week I fucked up my iPhone software, I called apple and they sent me out a brand new iPhone the next day; picking up my old one free of charge, other brands simply don't have that prestige! Apple has been selling smooth functional phones for years, whilst the best LG seems to have come up with is the KP500 Cookie, which still gives me nightmares! I would also like to wish Steve Jobs well and to have a speedy recovery!

You say 4G only really(?), they might as well put the gun to there head now and pull the trigger. You do realize not everyone lives in or around the 32 major NFL cities, thus is where the 4G seems to be limited to. There are other US citizens out there(much more then the cities nation wide) that love to get the new technology even though we have to deal with the oh so slow 3G..(whatever) Its fast enough for the majority of us.I think the i5 will be available on 3G as well as 4G. Just like the i4 is able to use the 3G and the (crappy) Edge. I will be switching to Verizon to get my i5 in June/July and will be very happy to be using the 3G network. Where I live now AT&T doesn't offer 3G, and 4G on Verizon is not expected in this area until late 2013.


CorpAu 5 years ago

Just goes into the Fraud File, as the heading reads iphone 5 review, indicating that you have an iphone 5 in your presence and are 'reviewing' it.

Nothing more than an opinion which you ARE allowed to have.

Your statement "The lowest model will come with 32G of space and 64G of memory" shows you are technologically inept (have you proof of this as your statement indicates?)


Juliaheartiphone4 5 years ago

..$500 you gotta be kidding me I mean common every time a new iPhone comes out the lowest price is $200 and the highest is $300 and it's always been that way and I don't think they'll change it I also don't think I would pay half a grand for an iPhone5 I would rather buy the iPhone4 for half the money and it's still just as good but I mean at the most it may be $100 more then usual for a new iPhone because they are making it more like a computer but I mean they won't go to $500 because no one would buy it. But if they are making the screen scratch and shatter repelled I would defiantly buy it because that's what broke my last two iPhones! But over all I can't wait to see it when it comes out regardless of the price

wow. this has to be the least informative piece by the least informed person i've ever read. if you're going to write about technology, it might be a good idea to at least grasp the proper use of terminology. of course, even with proper vernacular, actual facts would still be worth more than idle speculation.


Poor article. 5 years ago

A well written article respectfully addresses both sides of the competition. Ridding the world of the lesser non-apple phones? Are you serious? There's nothing wrong with Android. Both iOS and Android offer features that fit peoples' needs differently. Personally, I like android better than iOS. I like using widgets and I think the notifications are much more efficient. But I respect the iPhone, too. I think it's great for people who want a simple smartphone. Bottom line: both operating systems are excellent.


Crass64 5 years ago

Yes, I have all the iPhones so I'll be getting this one.

Never again will I fall prey to the bandwagon. This is the first time I've owned an iPhone and I'm hating it everyday. It limits everything I can do with a mobile phone. Being the noncoformist that I am, the iPhone has made me an unwilling servant. I was hoping I could get the Evo but since it wasn't available in my region, I've decided to settle for the iPhone, which is a grave mistake.


Dan 5 years ago

Haha, this is a crock. Comparing the new iPhone to the current Evo? The EVO crushes the current iphone, both stock and especially if you have the ability and knowledge to root and install custom roms. You mentioned Facetime on 3G? Well sir the EVO did that stock over 4g. The current iphone only support WiFi facetime.

Where is your write up and research on upcoming HTC models? I don't see it. So let's compare a phone that isn't out yet, to one that has been out for over a year? Then say, this is why it's going to change the world? Has HTC stopped making phones or something? Perhaps they are coming out with something new?

Dual core processors are already incorporated into the android scene. Tegra 2 chipsets are already rolling out.

Ladies and gents here is the truth. Apple will fail at this game. They will have their fanboys as always, but they will lose their dominate share of the cellular market. Here is why: Android is open source.

This means that you will have devs from HTC, Sony, Motorolla, Samsung, etc, all working on the Android OS to make it better. Whereas, apple will just have their own. So in essence, Android = lots of developers including third party, and iphone just their own. It's like the movie 300, the Spartans (Apple) put up a fight, but the Persians (Android) just had too many people in their army...

And most of the features that she wants on the iPhone 5 are already implemented by other phones like the GALAXY S 2. And s/he talks as if the iPhone 5 will be the first pone to get all those features. Stupid DUMB-ASS! There are phones with better hardware than iPhone 4. Go check out Galaxy S and Samsung Wave s8500. The iPhones lack so many things and still everyone just keeps boasting about it. Thats what happens when you haven't tried other phones.

Im going to buy a iphone 4 today. I had it and absolutly loved it. The 2 camera's were my favorite. Unfortunantly i went out one night and put it down to close out my tab and someone grabbed it and being so packed i didn't see who. I been using my old 3G since and i hate it. Most ppl look at me crazy complaining about an iphone but there is no comparison and it sucks to have to down grade. Anyway, If you are impatient like me you'll go ahead and buy an iphone 4 and then sell it and get ur money back when the iphone 5 comes out. At&t will buy it, but your better off selling it on Ebay to get ur full amount back. I just found out about the iphone 5 today and i cant wait!!

I'm an iPhone user on AT&T and I can tell you that I've never had a single service problem. Don't be fooled by the commercials. Verizon has more 3G coverage but AT&T's is faster. AT&T also has phone service in as many places as verizon. Where my Verizon friends have poor signal mine is good and vice versa.

But the silliest part of this "hub" was this quote "anyone who says Android based cell phones are going to be able to compete with the new iPhone 5 are completely delirious. They won't even come close to the capabilities offered by the new iPhone when it comes out". Really? Let's keep the facts straight. There are things Androids do that the iPhone 4 cannot. The iPhone 5 will be playing catch-up in some areas. Built in navigation is prety standard with many lesser phones already. Face time (not "video chat")over 4G is already possible with other phones and with the iPhone 4 it must be over wifi. "Much nicer overall body design"?? Huh? Have you seen it? No! Shatter resistant and scratch proof screen... Already available. Memory? Androids use a microSD card so choose your storage.

All this said, I wouldn't buy an android phone. I am waiting for the iPhone 5. I'm just saying, don't write silly articles that ignore the facts for the sake of being a fan. I'm a huge fan but I recognize the androids for what they are. Great pieces of tech... Just not nearly as intuitive as the iPhone (IMO).

LOL! You one of those that sits in front of a PC and then ask, does this have GMAIL? LOL, I know your kind all too well. You are so loyal to the Apple brand that you are blinded by everything else around you. I am an Apple user myself, I use their computer systems for work and I do own an iphone. To sum up your write up, you pretty much worship the iphone and all else just sucks. *sigh* You are one of those that give me pure entertainment and at the same time can drive me insane. "Can this computer go on the internet? Ohh, well my Mac doesn't do that!" WTF!?!?!?


AT&T user for 10years 5 years ago

Just went to AT&T store today and talked about the iPhone 5,..I have a 3G and it sucks cause of the ISO 4 software. I Also looked at androids and windows phones. I work with people who swear by there droids,...which is fine,...but it's funny that they have to get off the phone to text or use the internet based apps or Internet. Love AT&T for being the only network to do that. And knowing that Verizon peps excited for the iPhone just won't be able to experience talk and text at the same time. So what if the iPhone 5 has a couple more bells and whistles that the 4 or 3. Praise the network for talk and text it's a beautiful thing to talk to your wife while texting your girlfriend......lol

So the iPhone 5 with it's Dual-Core GPU is going to be able to do stuff that Android phones can't? Hmmm, have you seen the Galaxy S2? It has a Quad-Core GPU, last time I checked, 4 is better then 2.

There is no guarantee that verizon will be included in the service prividers for the iphone 5, if it is even going to exist. I have my hopes that a 5th generation will come out but it is hard to say whether or not it will happen. On the note of the service providers though, Apple has maintained very exclusive rights with AT&T. Just because the iphone 4 came out for verizon doesn't mean that the 5th one will. and as for the Sprint network being able to get an iphone, Im sorry to say but i dont think that it will happen. AT&T and Verizon are just outcompeting them and it doesn't look like there is any hope. Keep your fingers crossed that Steve Jobs has some neat tricks up his sleeve.

This hub on so many levels i dont know where to begin.

1. It's not a review if you never seen the actual product and your just purely "Speculating".

2. This is biased as all hell. Why not tell people your writing an Iphone 5 bible and Steve Jobs is your god while your at it.

3. 4G is an absolute gimmick because nobody has the TRUE 4G technology other then SPRINT. Everyone else's 4g is just a server conversion with partial 4G qualities.

4. Are you kidding me did you just promote Jailbreaking. What are you like 13. Jailbreaking is not something everyone does and your ignorance is going to make amateurs do stupid things like frag their phones in attempting to do so.

5. Reading this article made everyone at least 2% dumber.

Who is the very intelligent lady writing this article? Nobody can piss guys off like a tech savvy women ay? I love how the droid people get all defensive when they're about to be out done (again) by apple. I have the 3Gs 16 gig version of the iPhone. I passed on the iPhone 4 and I'm glad I did, because if iPhone 5 is all of what our brainy lil author says it is I'll be there with bells on. Although I won't leave ATT to get it, to be perfectly honest I've never had a problem my service. If I couldn't talk and google at the same time the earth would probably spin off into a different galaxy. Btw even metro pms err sorry pcs customers can talk and text but nobody can talk and go online except ATT. I know I know all you people that have other carriers are like it's not important to me, I never have the urge to talk and google. Yea right. Well thanks for the great article and I'll have to check you out more often ? ( oh sorry you droid people can't read that)

FYI.. For those who keep saying the iPhone 5 isn't coming out until 3 or so more years, well where have you losers been??? Haven't you noticed that it doesn't take that long for Apple to come out with a new generation?! Duh!

It's out this June 2011!!!

If you dont care for the iPhone then get out of this page!

If you love the iPhone then awesome! Get you a new iPhone 5!!!

Thanks for the backup all you Apple fans. What I don't get is why these HTC and Samsung Galaxy fanboys are even finding this article. I think they have iphone 5 envy seeing as how they're searching for it in Google.

If you don't like the iPhone, go ahead stick with the phone you have or get the new Samsung Galaxy. I'll get the iPhone Universe and destroy your galaxy in the meantime. It's too bad those companies don't have the technological OR marketing prowess that Apple has.

Check the votes, we win, you lose.


oresho 5 years ago

jailbreaking has nothing to do with carriers, there's a difference between UNLOCKING and jailbreaking.

in any case, whether this phone is on a verizon, sprint, t-mobile, or AT&T cellular service, it will definitely be cracked (jailbroken) unless apple gets smart and removes restrictions on what apps you can place on the phone (requiring use of app store and what not)

I look forward to the iphone 5 and a more enhanced boxwave or [insert epic new company here] qwerty slide out keyboard that'll integrate a connection between board and phone opposed to charging both separetly... (i.e. like how the battery case is) plug into the plug to charge the unit ;)


Tink(GB) 5 years ago

Come On Apple I dare you...!

Personally I can't wait for the June/July 11 Apple event. Whatever it's spec (and only a few people on the planet know what might be actually coming) I am hoping Apple do it again and raise the bar and hopefully turn the market on its head. How??

Let's see, where are we now...? We have half a dozen mobile phone manufacturers competing to match and surpass Apple. But they will never be able to compete, as in reality, Apple are NOT phone manufacturers. They are a Computer Software giants. They are Software & Operating System specialists first and foremost.

On the other hand, Nokia, make great phones (simple but excellent quality handsets with excellent call quality). This is because they are a Telecoms giant.

But they have been struggling.. Why? because phone technology is basically stagnant. It has been for years. When Nokia tried to move away from this to compete with the rest of the market, they started slowly to get into smartphones using symbian etc and they eventually became unstuck in a technology they never specialised in, hence to compete and survive 10 years later, they teamed up with Microsoft, the other computer software giant on this planet.

You don't agree? Look at it this way? What does the iphone excel in? It is certainly NOT call quality...it's the platform and the OS. Those computer software elements that are so user-friendly. Smartphones were ahead of the iphone when it first got launched, but what little it did do, it did it so well. The winning formula for Apple was bringing this to us in a sleek, modern package way ahead of the traditional handset. It's only this last few years that he rest of the fraternity have caught up with touch screens etc. The key was the integration with a design that was to die for. (A Britsh design too btw).

HTC are likewise very wise and smart. As a hardware platform maker they experimented with OS, but it still didn't quite happen, so rather than suffer like Nokia they have made deals with Microsoft for example to embede their OS, mixing the best of their own OS with Mr Balmers. This again was bound to be successful, especially with HTC's innovative and well built designs. Results speak for themselves.

Samsung, Sharp, Sony and the other Far East Tech companies are floating in between Apple & HTC.

They produce Hardware, excellent screens and electronics. Their own phones are cheaper looking, less user friendly and try to compete, but they won't be able to for ever. Without Android they would be dead already. Samsung and Sharp are really VDU & display speacialists.

Sony particularly always tries to push the envelope with new file formats and standards and unlike BlueRay, don't really succeed (for example the DuoFlash Memstick against the Sandisk MicroSD) most of the time. They needed to make alliances like HTC did and they found it a bit easier to keep market share by diverifying, Audio, Gaming etc, otherwise they will be even more marginalised in this market the future.

Therefore how will Apple turn the market on it's head?

What I now actually want is a multimedia, always connected, wifi pocket device that also makes phone calls - not the other way around anymore...so perhaps Apple (in the absence of Mr SJ) will turn the corner and completely sideswipe the competition by changing tack? I hope so.

I want the device that will pay for my coffee, newspaper, and turnstile fee for the Underground (Metro) at a swipe, and then while travelling I will be able to get my email, play a few games, read a book or listen to music or watch a video. Of course we can do all this on our phones now to a point, but therein lies the issue.

The phonecall istelf cannot develop anymore. The other applications and the handset AROUND the phonecall is. So why bother with the smartphone pretense anymore?

With the advent of BT headsets you don't need the wires. The wired headsets limit the width. Without the form factor can move forwards further into flexible devices & displays properly.

Having a data tariff is essential, having a call tariff is nowadays secondary.

Suggestions to replace the iPhone monica? How about: the iCan?

Come on Apple, I dare you to give me what I really want by dropping the Telecom operator and making a "sim-less" multimedia, interactive device that can still make calls with! Roll on Face Chat!


oresho 5 years ago

j pass you're an idiot, sure it's not 4g... yet, however the capability is out there, it's not impossible to accomplish within the next 4-5 months, that aside who said they wouldn't be using SPRINT.

aside from that, you're retarded if you don't promote jailbreaking... jailbreaking isn't hacking, it's giving the users the ability to use their rightfully owned processing units to do much more then what's given by default

unless you're one of the fools who uses "jailbreaking" to download STOLEN/RIPPED apps off of official/pay-for mediums... in which case you're the 13 year old idiot.

I still have the 3G, I really want the 4, but it'll totally suck to get the 4 now and 4 months later the 4S or 5 comes out. I like all the gizmo's and NFC possibilities, but they do need put energy into the "phone call" quality, and bring that up to the level of the device itself. I know that's primarily the carriers issue, but I'm sure Apple has enough pull with ATT and Verizon to demand better, and get it.

The i-phone is a beautiful thing. The touch screen works better than any other phone I have used to date and the quality of the construction is far better than any of my HTC phones and I will most likely buy one on release day. There is a but, and it is a big BUT, the I phone is very expensive when compared with faster higher spec android phones. The tariffs more expensive (do oranges et el have to use special apple friendly waves to carry its precious signals, I think not) , and you need to pay for most of the full apps unlike android apps. Its simple folks, the apple is a desirable fashion statement, it is a beautiful device but it is not the best phone (technically) . If you want a fashion accessory and peer approval you will probably buy one, it will compliment your jimmy choo’s , Armani suit and £100 hair do, but please don’t try to argue its somehow faster or technically superior because all the techy geeks (like me) will lol.

This article is bullsh*t and all these iPhone-lovers are quite dumb if you all think that Android phones are nowhere near the technology of the so-called "revolutionary" iPhone, give me a break. There is the Motorola Atrix that is coming out with a dual-core processor. The Samsung Galaxy S2 has been in the making for the past several months now and that also is coming with a dual-core processor. I will never buy an iPhone because it will always lack what Android has nailed down. F*ck iPhone, Android is the way of the future. Step aside Apple, Android is taking it from here. Thanks for coming out and take a seat.

Will it have "Free" Google Naviation?

Will it have 4.3" large screen?

Will it be both HDMI and DLNA enabled?

Will it have a free phone back service like Google?

If the answer to these questions is "NO", then I dont see the difference between IPhone 5 and its predecessors.

I've skipped the iPhone 4 so far as it sounded like it had too many faults. I don't want to get into that trap of having to renew my phone just because the manufacturer tells me to either.

Well, when iPhone first came out was an unknown phone. I bought it because was the cooooolest phone. Even when was slow as hell, i was pimping anywhere. People kept on asking and complementing my iPhone. But when they came out with new version and

Another one and another one, I realized that it was better waiting for them to fix or improvet it. Now I've got iPhone 4 and compared to iPhone 1. It's a wow!!!!!!! I mean 1 didn't even have a camera (while cheapest phones did). I think that if ip5 is not very different from ip4. I'll just wait for apple to improve the iPhone and AT&T to improve themselves.

Cletis 5 years ago

There is ZERO evidence of what the iPhone 5 will look like nor the features it will host. Creating a hub suggesting otherwise is lying to the public. The iPhone 4 mis-release was a huge embarrassment to Apple, and they wont be making the same mistake again. "The lowest model will come with 32G of space and 64G of memory" that does not even make sense. space is memory. And "HD Audio"? The human ear cannot even hear above 320kbps, so again, no sense made. Show your "sources" when posting some BS like this..............................

>>> For Kwazzy, your not making any sense. The human ear can not hear kbps (kilobytes per second). It senses frequency vibrations in cycles per second which is called Hertz. I guess you meant to say 320,000 Hz or 320 kHz. 32 Gb of space for the lowest model and 64 Gb of memory for the higher model makes sense to me. Bottom line is there are many great phones out there and there are only two reasons I would buy the IPhone 5 and these are the build quality of the phone itself compared to others and the ability to be able to locate the phone if it is lost by using MobileMe Find my Iphone. If any other phones can do this, let me know.

I doubt that the iPhone 5 will be anywhere around $500 dollars though, as it would stand alongside the price of the current iPhones and iPads at $200-250. WIll also wait for the actual Keynote address from Apple regarding specs on an iPhone 5, iPad II, or any Apple product. Leaks and hearsay, need release confirmation first... as it has shown in the past to change when released.

There's no cause to slam competitor products. Android has it's merits. Not for you? Fine...enjoy your device of choice, but leave the snide, unfounded, ill-informed quips out of your apple centric pep rallies.

Oh, and by the way...most of these magical, amazing features you suggest the iPhone 5 will possess...already exist in android devices.


Guest 5 years ago

That was one of the worst hub's I've ever read. Your features listed exist in a lot of Nokia phones, and are really old. The iPhone 5 sounds like it will be as outdated as the iPhone 4 was when it was released. Apple needs to step up their game.

Guest 5 years ago

A most naively written article. The author thinks that she knows it all, but all that can be heard is a blind devotee yapping about the iPhone without even knowing what it packs. In fact iOS tech specs will never be revealed to its users, so Ms. Ciaocatherine can forget about enlightening anybody.

See what this wisegal has written -

"One of the biggest benefits of owning a new iPhone 5 is that it'll come with dual core processors that will make it load at super fast speeds" .. what speed? what processor family? unless it is anything less than a dual core cortex-A15, there is nothing extraordinary here. Also, optimal fabrication of A15s is possible with 28nm process only, and its atleast 1 year away from mass utilization. Dual core A9s, already here - Tegra2, Snapdragon MSM8260, Samsung Exynos, TI OMAP 4.. all present in Android phones.

"it will be incorporating even more powerful graphics chip cards" which one? Nvidia Geforce ULP is already kicking butt of the PowerVR GPU used in the iPhone. Samsung Galaxy S2 uses quad-core GPU. Apple guys are not going to license superior technology coz they believe in pocketing all the profits themselves. So suck on that.

"20 gigawatt gazillion megapixel already in the iPhone 4 wasn't enough" -- using superlatives in that meaningless way serves as a perfect indictment of the education system. Does the author even know that Steve Jobs himself has touted that the existing iPhone4 display packs the maximum concentration of pixels the human retina can assimilate? Pointless to spend more money in display R&D then.

"anyone who says Android based cell phones are going to be able to compete with the new iPhone 5 are completely delirious" -- the author herself appears delirious since the primary punch out of any smartphone comes from the Google services. Android has far superior integration to those as compared to any iPhone generation. And of course the Achilles heel that not even Mr. Jobs want to acknowledge- "Adobe Flash". HTML5 is here to stay but Flash wont be phased out in a year or two. Sorry iPhone fans, even though the iPhone is a fantastic piece of hardware, not all technologies being used on the web are dictated by Apple. Android 2.3 Gingerbread has native support for Flash 10.1

"The new iPhone 5 is expected to have Face Recognition Security so that you don't have to worry about other people stealing your phone and trying to use it" - Samsung Galaxy S2 running Gingerbread (Android 2.3) has it already. And that stealing faces part is laughable. What if someone takes your photograph and unlocks the phone with it? The better answer is definitely the fingerprint sensor offered on Motorola Atrix 4G (Android 2.2 Froyo)

"Much nicer overall body design of the phone. It's going to be even thinner and have a shiny black piece." The so called better design of iPhone4 led to AntennaGate. Apple were forced to resort to the cheap alternative of providing "free" iPhone cases to mitigate the issue. First thing, a lot of users want the phone to be straight out of the box. Considering modern scratch resistant screens (Gorilla glass if you will, present on a variety of devices, including the iPhone4, Galaxy S and S2, Atrix 4G, LG Optimus ......) this is not a problem and people should not be bothered with putting non-standard cases on their phones. Shiny black backside? What's so great about that??

"Shatter Resistant and Scratch Resistant Screen" --already there, unless Apple decided to finally use the term "gorilla glass" to acknowledge Corning's technology.

"The lowest model will come with 32G of space and 64G of memory. I'll be able to store my whole computer on the lowest model of the iPhone 5. Yippeee for me." -- unless you are (still) running a computer model bought before the year 2004, I am afraid that your dreams are growing to be shattered. BTW, iPod classic already comes with 160GB storage? Have you been carrying 2 copies of your computer on that all these years?

"HD Audio - The quality of sound is going to be extra crisp." -- if the signal reception allows, that is. All smartphones have the same level of audio quality anyways, so there you go.. another piece of non-techno junk.

"Built In GPS - You'll never get lost or have to download one of those stupid GPS apps." -- Apple didn't purchase any GPS navigation software company, did they? If the author is talking about a GPS receiver, it was present even in Windows Mobile phones older than 2007. The software is already there, free of cost. Its called Google Maps.

You can be blissfully ignorant and keep waiting for your favourite version of your favourite phone. In the meantime, I will do some serious evaluations to decide which one of the Motorola Atrix or the Samsung Galaxy S2 will join my gadget list, in less than a month from now.

I recently ditched sprint for iPhone 4 w AT&T and I have no probs. the sprint guy said all companies are getting iphone before years end.. so far verizon did so it maybe true. with 4g network I'm not empressed. I had it with sprint. it would only work in certain areas ( hardly any) and I didn't notice an increase in speed. iPhone 4 rules !

This article was written from a apple fan boy! I could see you must of gotten paid from apple because as most people don't know that IPhone 4 1ghz processor was created from samsung so where do you think the IPhone 5 chip would come from this time? Qualcomm, samsung, Nividia, Texas instrument who knows? Apple gets their hardware from different companies, apple is working on a 7.8 billion manufacture deal with samsung hmmm I wonder why?

Apple needs to change it's whole strategy, the company is under alot of pressure from android so this article is funny to me. I been through 3 generation of iPhones don't get me wrong they are ok but not the best! I have a iPhone 4 and a evo they both even out on my opinion and the new dual core on the iPhone 5 well android will have it too

I certainly hope the iphone 5 has more than what you described above. I mean the things you described above are nice, but are already available with one or the other manufacturer including dual core processors. If all it is going to have is the above mentioned list, then there is absolutely no point in waiting for the iphone 5. It will be just better to go get something else today which offers all of these features and will be much lighter on my budget.

Att's gonna trap most existing customers if they upgrade their current iphones. Most people like myself have been lucky to have the (old unlimited data plans) instead of the new Data Pro Plans limited to 2Gb's. Now if you have the old plan your gonna have to upgrade to the NEW 4G internet plans!. So overall they're gonna raise the prices and on top of that also limit your usage. Think about it. If your using 3-4 GB's a month like me. If you have 4G that's gonna double since your gonna be able to do more on att's data. I think att's Gonna Turn a little too green.

Reasons Droid CAN compete with the iPhone 5 5 years ago

2. Android already has dual-core

4. Androids are a LOT cheaper

5. All the reasons someone jailbreaks an iDevice already are available on Android

6. Android has a variety of phones to select from

And finally, 7. Not everyone is a god damned Apple fag with their noses up Apple's asses waiting for the next thing to be released by their inconsiderate, closed monopoly.

Thisisstupid 5 years ago

I own a iPhone 4 myself. And I love it, so do not even begin to call me an android fanboy, they both have their up sides. But as I won't mention the name, I run a tech blog myself, just for the sake of not starting a turf war, every single bit of what this girl is saying is speculation and I can almost 99% promise u that, the price for example $500? iPhone is either $199,299 on contract(16,32gb) and $599,$699 straight up so $500 is a stupid price and not accurate, as well there are already android phones dropping with dual core processors and as of yet iPhone has no reason to have one(even tho I believe it will myself) because it's software is about 2 years more mature than android, android already has 4g, and *cough* the EVO isn't even close to the best android phone available. As it currently stands morphine is releasing a phone this month that will have dual core nvidia tegra 2 processor, with each core running at 1ghz, same as the supposed new in iPhone 5, so to say it will be so much better is a longshot at beat. With all that said, I own both a android and a iPhone 4 and love iPhone for it's ease of use and overall fluidity, but I love android bc it has recently matures into a legitimate OS and can match anything the iPhone can, as well there are android phones on the market that can record 1080p video at 60fps, I could go on for days but I'll stop here. iPhone 5 will be a great phone but to say the best ever is dumb, at the rate smartphones are dropping these days there is a new champ almost daily, so it's a great phone, one of the best, but different strokes for different folks. I choose two strokes, android,and iOS


youranidiot 5 years ago

Like to see you teather your iphone without jailbreaking. android phones can do that out of the box, plus ever try and develop an iphone app? retarded apple thinks its a good idea to use their own brand of objective c, since everything over there has to be proprietary. Google atleast had the common sense to use java for android apps. but anyways you should probably consider reading a book, or go to school or something, because as it stands now your just embarrassing yourself.

Sorry honey but your delusional, I know several people that have metro, sure it's cheap but it's horrible.

The iPhone 5 on Verizon will also be able to surf the web while talking on the phone because of the 4g network, just like the HTC Thunderbolt will.


shepherd 5 years ago

I was just researching the latest phones (on a Samsung Captivate which I bought six months ago) and I happened to find this enlightening article. Sounds like some pretty lofty expectations, or a bunch of crap that doesn't matter and/or can't be proven. The cracks about the android phones is particularly interesting considering the current android phones don' have any trouble competing with the iphones in the categories of speed, ease of use, and capability. It's just another case of sheep following the herd. Also, my phone didn't cost $500, nor did it cost $200. It was $79.00. Now you can get one for $49.00 at Walmart. Did I mention it has a 1 ghz processor, built in navigation, and the storage is expandable to 48 gb. I didn't buy an iphone just because all my buddies were. I did some research and made the decision to but the Captivate after trying out it and the iphone. The iphone may be a good phone, but that's no reason to run down the android phones. Especially from the perspective of some teenage (only assuming) girl that hasn't owned one of the latest android phones. So just to recap, you can just follow the herd like sheep to a slaughterhouse and buy whatever Apple is selling or do a little research and make an educated decision.

"The new iPhone 5 is expected to have Face Recognition Security so that you don't have to worry about other people stealing your phone and trying to use it... That is, unless they steal your face too."

Does this mean I am the only one who can use the phone? What if I wanted to lend the phone to my wife or borther or whoever? Will it have to recognize all the faces? This is just one flaw that I can see with this...

Will the iphone 5 allow me to make calls like my HTC does?


Matt 5 years ago

Actually from what I heard, iPhone 5 will not have 4G. I have also found most who work at the Apple store, aren't very knowledgeable. Those who fix the products are but those who sell the products aren't.

The reason iOS is a better OS than Android is due to Google's open app policy and allowing any company to make an Android phone.

Allowing any company to make an Android phone means the updates are at the digression of the company on a per phone basis instead of Google having full say. This means most Android phones only get 1-2 updates for the lifetime of the phone with a lot of Android phones dying with the same OS that came with their phone.

Having an open app policy is bad because anyone is allowed to make an app even a trojan app if they feel like it because no one has to approve of the app first. So you have trojan apps, as well as buggy apps that are from developers who have no intent on polishing the app and destroying the bugs. Most companies who release both an Android and iOS version, the iOS version is almost always better.

It's kind of ironic. People got pissed off with iPhone being so closed sourced and Apple's iron grip on the market. But because they have to approve all the apps, developers are forced to make good apps or they won't make it into the app store.

Also being the only company making the iPhone, it means the iPhone will get 2 years worth of updates for the lifetime of the phone.

Android was a great alternative when iPhone was an AT&T exclusive but anyone buying it now over iPhone are just cheap people who want a poor man's version of an iPhone without the premium costs. (You can get a cheap service like T-Mobile with Android, you can't with iPhone).

From what I was told, AT&T does not have network to handle 4G. Their current network is good for 3G. Does anyone know more about this?

For all the dumbass anti iPhone users, why are you looking this up If you don't like the apple iPhone or don't think it's coming out soon? Apple messed up on iPhone 4. So they are releasing iPhone 5. And I'm guess there will be the white option. They are saving to release the white iPhone 4 to take place of the iPhone 3GS now. And another guess is that the 32g will be 199 w/ 2yearcontract and 64 for 299 w/2yearcontact like how it is for the iPhone 4 now. Sounds pretty realistic. So all you non iPhone users.

I have an iPod 4th Gen I am using to help me wait for the new iPhone. The one big drawback of Apple devices (I think) is the control of sound. A volume control + and - should be added in, as continually going into video or audio section to turn sound up and down is such a drag. Two buttons on the front for up and down volume would be great.

Iphone 4 is pure rubbish google ten reasons the iphone 4 is rubbish.An absolute steaming pile of horse manure!.Do not waste your hard earned cash on this junk.Go for android phone at least you can decide which apps you want to install like third party apps also you can stop them from accessing the internet running up your internet bills! unlike apples iphone you have complete freedom.You do not OWN your phone apple does.

I think it's gunna be a really cool phone and all, but that's just a little too much for me. On top of that, I like to have a different phone than everyone else... I just got an iPod 4 and thats as good as it's getting for me !! But I have to admit my friend Lexi has an iPhoe and I love it so...

Firstly, newer comments should be at the top! Secondly forget about the iphone5. All you have heard is peoples wet dreams about a magical phone that cannot possibly exist yet, especially for that price let alone the battery life expectancy. Come on people, wake up! If you want a very nice super fast user friendly phone then get the HTC hd7. It already has most of what you boast!

2. samsung has super AMOLED SCREEN 4.3 inches

3. samsung's galaxy 2 version also will be slimmer then the iphone 5.

4. then you have motorolla atrix, i can go on,

5 android smart phones have taken over the iphone.

24 % in sales to be exact.

What I don't get is if the Android fanboys think their phones are so great then why are they reading articles and posting comments about iPhones??? No life????? The openess of the OS truly is a stupid argument....IT's A FUCKING PHONE!!!!! If you have nothing better to do then give every alert a different sound then you need to get a life!!! HDMI on a phone is like putting tits on a bull....fucking useless. Oh and I love the talk about iPhone being behind the times....remember the new iPhone comes out once a year, a new android comes out every week or so. At least with an iPhone my phone us current for a year. With android a month after you buy it your phone is outdated!!!!!

Remember you know you're on top when everyone is trying to knock you down.

I love my iPhone 4 and the ONLY thing I'm a bit unhappy about is the non-expandable storage.

I have 28 days of music in iTunes and it's all on my Iphone but I want more... more.... more.. STORAGE. I don't want to transfer vids and pix off the fone (other than for back-up) I want them all at my finger-tips. I want more storage..more..more..more.

My IP4 works just fine, the camera works, the folders works, I don't care about vid conferencing.. I just want more storage and... better battery life... more..more ...more... :-)

I would like to disagree with some of ur speculation apple is acctually trying to minimize the size of the iPhone therefore it will cost less and it will only have small amounts of memory because onboard memory will no longer be necessary and it will cost under 500dllrs.

I bought the 1st gen iPhone, then felt betrayed by the Lowered price and the weak 100 credit they offered the people who bought it when it went on sale. Those who bought the phone later got a 200 dollar credit. So I skipped the iPhone 3 & 3GS. Bought the iPhone 4. Will probably skip the iPhone 5 cuz they will come out with something better. Just like the iPad, thought about buying one, now they will be coming out with the iPad 2. Glad I did not buy the first iPad.

(4g isnt really 4g yet...)


Phone tech 5 years ago

I'm sry but you know nothing about iphone.

iPhones suck. They dont stand a chance vs any android Idc what they put in the iPhone 5.

And second break resistant and scratch resistant screen? Um what did they make it out of? Diamonds? Ha your so gullible.

Okay third 64G isn't going to hold all your computers memory.

Fourth duel cores have been in phones for a while so nothing new.

And finally AT&Ts network is perfectly fine and is the best and I can prove that all day.

And verizons little chart of AT&Ts service is a lie. Because if it was true then y did anyone get the iPhone. Point proven.

The resion people jailbreak the iPhone is because they suck and they want to make the as close to an android as possible. Not because of the AT&T network.


Joe 5 years ago

This is why I hate blogs most of the info here is simply speculation and incorrect not to mention biased. The iPhone 5 will not be 500 on contract, no it hasn't been confirmed that iPhone 5 will be 4G on verizon, and the iPhone 5 will not have any capabilities that a similarly priced android phone would not also have. Do have any knowledge of cell phones or are you just an apple fan?


The Sandman 5 years ago

I'm an iPhone user and a cell phone sales consultant (I work with almost every carrier). I have to say, I was all about the iPhone 5 rumors, until I got my hands on the Motorola Atrix 4G today..

Check that phone out, talk about suh-weet. Also, a huge cause of jail broken iPhones isn't just on AT&Ts head, but also Apple. They are a more regulated and restricted brand of app market than when it comes to say Android or even the newly emerged Windows Zune market. iPhone rocks, but one often gets tired with the stingy and pricey Apple way of doing things. I mean, c'mon.. Angry Birds IS free on Android.

I can't deny my love for the iPhone though, it was my introduction to the smart phone world and I'm not quite sure I can fully separate from it, but man, that Atrix is slick :P

Iphone 4 was nice although Apple products seem to be more of a fad now a days. 3 phones coming to Verizon this year that'll stomp Iphone are (1) HTC Thunderbolt, (2) LG Revolution, (3) Droid Bionic. These are all scheduled to be released this year although Motorola's Bionic is the only dual core out of the three. 2011 is the year for Android!


The Sandman 5 years ago

Vz that's no joke. The Atrix is releasing in a week or two and it's Dual Core. I've experienced the speed, it's amazing. I wasn't big on Android until recently, they are definitely sweeping in for the kill shot ha.

Or maybe Windows will be the sleeping giant in the cell phone world?

IPhones rule, droids drool. FUCK OFF ANDROID LOVERS. No one cares what you have to say. Just cuz you can't afford a awesome phone from apple doesn't mean you need to judge everything bad about the iphones. Droids phones are dumb, apple iPhone is easy to use, jailbreak and better quality.


Alvaro  5 years ago

Sadly I won't be buying an iPhone 5 as I went to Verizon as soon as they got the iPhone. I had to do it I had to get the unlimited data plan that they had who's to say they stop this plan shortly before the iPhone 5 would be released. I just couldn't take that chance & besides I always upgrade every third generation (I had the original, skipped the 3G, skipped the 3GS & got the iPhone 4) so at this rate I'll skip iPhones 5 & 6 & get 7 hopefully by that point I'll be able to tell my iPhone 7 to get the groceries, walk the dog, do my laundry & fight with my girlfriend for me lol.


Yousa 5 years ago

Not to be too picky because not everyone is as technically inclined, but it always makes me chuckle when you see these supposed "geek" writers gets some simple things incorrect like pluralizing "Dual Core ProcessorS", whoa, iPhone5 is not only going to multi-cores but multi-processors too?! And the use of the phrase "Graphics Chip Cards", and thinking that the graphics processor onboard will help with still images? I say just continue with your regurgitated predictions and leave the real tech talk to those who actually know what they mean!

With the iPhone 5 release imminent, there is one slight issue for us UK users, no 4G network! I believe it is being auctioned off to the telecom networks in 2012/3.

I got the 3G S when O2 launched it, the phone is great, the network, rubbish, well, its okay if you live near a town or city. In rural Wales, forget it! -And I was sold the Phone on that network because O2 said I would have coverage where I lived... -doh!

It will be a nice bit of kit. Don't forget the RF Chip which will allow the phone to act as a payment card! (New Debit/Credit cards have such technologies).

Now, where's the concept of a receipt that can be transmitted via WiFi or bluetooth? - That would make things a lot cleaner/quicker.

Google has failed me at yet another pointless reading. OMG dual core and 4g?!?!

see tegra 2 and one of many 4g phones out. Nothing ground breaking here. This phone is being released so it doesn't get left behind in the 3g era. Which is a good decision imo, but its not much more then that.

Dont get me wrong, iphone's are good phones. They aren't godly tho.


Paul 5 years ago

quote "anyone who says Android based cell phones are going to be able to compete with the new iPhone 5 are completely delirious. They won't even come close to the capabilities offered by the new iPhone when it comes out."

Apple Fanboi/Fangrrl per chance?

Each manufacturer is trying to leapfrog over each other (e.g. iPad vs Xoom etc). Also please consider that iPhone is a hardware platform; iOS is the software that runs it. Android is also the OS, not the hardware, so for example Moto could come along with an equiv chipset and put Android on it (with some updates to the OS required I'm sure) and we're back to where we are today.

I think it's really exciting to see all these players trying to get the market lead, but i would also hope for subjective writing, not biased comments which make me think you're one of those that subscribe to the Church of Apple - and affects my perception of your credibility, know what i mean?


JP 5 years ago

People always give too much attention on cell phone hardware specs. Most of people think that larger RAM size, more megapixel camera, higher bandwidth, etc will give more power therefore thinking that the device is superior than other devices. In my opinion, OS which runs on a device is just as important (if not more) as the device itself. iOS is by far most intuitive OS to use and it is very scalable OS. What Apple has done to iphone and iOS is truly amazing. I am very technical person and more and more I use iOS and Snow Leopard on a Mac, I come to appreciate UI design and integration that come with them. Those are something that Android and other smart phones will have tough time to catch up to.

Nick 5 years ago

Alright guys, this is author is clearly an idiot.

I'll be the first to admit that I have an Ipod, and that I think Apple is a great company with very cool products. That being said, I will be purchasing a Droid Bionic this summer when my contract with verizon is available for an upgrade. Why? its just personal preference, based on research i've done about the droid bionic and through rumor sites like this.

So thats all well and good, but then I read this article, and i cant help but think, "WOW, I didnt know that holding an ipone to your ear for too long could make you stupid."

Seriously, This whole "Android wont come close" crap is ridiculous.

1. any facial scanning software on the iphone is guaranteed garbage, We're just not there yet with the technology guys sorry.

2. 4g video chat, yep, the droid bionic will have that when it gets released

3. A shiny black piece? what are you four?

4. There is no such thing as a shatter and scratch resistant screen, it just doesnt exist, you sound idiotic

5. Having built in memory is fine, the droid bionic will have the ability to put in micro sd cards for far greater memory possibilities.

6. Longer battery life? 14 hours is not a long time, its sad that you think that's good. Also, you don't have girlfriends, you might have one apple fan girl like yourself who is lesbian.

7.HD audio- Intel's idea, and n oone will notice

8. GPS? my LG dare from 2008 can do that easily, and I know for a fact that blackberries and other smartphones could long before that.

I'm not saying the Iphone is gonna be bad, i'm sure it'll be nice and sleek, but really, if you want to make an informed decision wait for real details then decide, this article is clearly garbage.

I think the only delirious one here is you. How could you say that the iPhone 5 is going to be the superior phone? As if it was going to be the one phone to rule them all. I know that it won't even stand a chance with the Thunderbolt. The iPhone 5 is moste likely going to be another crapy phone running on 3G. Don't tell all these people it's going to perform all these miraculous features, when it's not. That's why I'm done with iPhones and plan to move on to big boy phones.

One more thing how do you want to say something so smug like that about the Evo. Yeah it has crappy "Sprint" service, but compared to the iPhone 4. Actually no you can't compare the two because the iPhone 4 is a joke. Another thing is that the Android based phones are always more mature and serious then these cartoony iOS supported iPhones.

P.S. I'm using AT&T, and the service works great I don't know what your talking

about. I just can't wait for the HTC THUNDERBOLT, to set me free from this god awful iPhone.


Ugh 5 years ago

I knew to be skeptical when reading this, because the FACT is only select Apple employees know what you're only guessing. Which brings me to the question: Where are you getting this information from, exactly? I see no references to any sources whatsoever. No "according to's" or "citing from's." The rest of the zombies reading this who are drooling at the article... well, there are coarse words for them - the same folks who would pool their money together to buy the Golden Gate Bridge from a homeless freak from SF.

EVO Owner 5 years ago

Wow, IPhone owners are a different breed I guess. This page is a joke first of all, second the Iphone 5 would already be behind the curve with the specs that are mentioned when it is released. All other manufacturers that build "Android" phones will have the dual processors and indestructible cases. On top of that, 4g phones have been out for quite some time now.

You need to read up on the history of Apple, they always set themselves up for failure. Just look at the desktops, Windows corners the market because of Apple's control over "their" products.


Schmeegz 5 years ago

I know for a fact that the iPhone 5 will be out this summer for verizon. And yes it will be 4G. Also you can surf and talk at the same time on it. Most likely data plans will increase in price. The thunderbolt will offer skype however that is actually an older software than FaceTime which the iPhone uses.


kt 5 years ago

I use iphone 4 and i am not very satisfied with the features. I have been using iphone since fisrt gen. Honestly I use iphone only because i like the safari which is like computer like browser not like mobile. iphone doesn't have many features other simple phone has. I will point out one, something like file transfer. Suppose you want to transfer your contacts to your gps unit you cannot. There has been several apps come out by 3rd party which works with trouble. I used one of those first gen sony ericsson before iphone came out and file transfer worked flawlessly. I think many ppl use Iphone because of it's design and finishing but not featuures. Marketing plays a role too. Not to offend the iphone lovers, but i would say there are lots of phones out there that not too many ppl know.


michael 5 years ago

when will the iphone be out


Yeah 5 years ago

First of all there is nothing new on the iPhone 5 that android phones don't already have. The iPhone is a phone for followers. It has almost zero personalization and customization compared to android phones. Disspite what people say about the speed of the iPhones, android phones have always been faster and will always be faster. If one of this iPhone lovers would just do alittle research on other phones they would find all this out. Can't believe somebody thinks that apple is ahead of android in anything. Ever heard of widgets apple? Live wallpaper? Swype? I could go on. Apple hasn't been ahead of the curve since pinch to zoom on the first iPhone. Just been the same thing repeated since. Didnt even do video till the 3GS. The iPhone 5 will be no different. So please iphoners. Get your heads out of you a$$e$.

bluetooth pictures t any other phone

delete a single call from the call log without deleting the whole log

transfer a video to the computer

+ many many more

but apple will continue to ignore and this little minor details and continue to add crap that isn't needed.

don't get me wrong I love the phone but apple do all the advanced features well and ignore all the simple details that everyone takes for granted on other pjones

Im waiting for the iphone 7, its going to have an i7 processor, 8 jiggawatts of memory, and a 50 tetrabyte harddrive.

If this is accurate you could potentially buy it in the future and travel back in time to give it to yourself now...ergo you would then be the first person with the Iphone 7, years before its actual launch!


Flockofsheep 5 years ago

Wow this guy who wrote this article must be an Apple insider! Oh wait if anyone paid any attention to the article besides just picking out key words such "iPhone5" then you missed how he obtained this information that he asked someone who works at an apple store! All of is claims at this point are just rumors, and as Steve Jobs knows rumors start tumors which is leading him to his grave. People who work at Apple stores have no inside information because Apple likes to keep its products in development as secretive as possible. You as how I know this? Because I have a friend who started up a tech company that develops apps for Apple and noticed a new device being tested at Apple that didn't have device name, just an ID number and were the first outsiders to break the news that the iPad was developed and being tested for release.

So with that said you sheep should just get an Android phone where you can actually watch flash videos, have more options to personalize your phone, and to get an actual life besides waiting to see what version of the next iPhone are coming out iPad, which by the way are the same devices that really haven't changed much and all look the same!!!!!!!!!!!!

iPhone sucks. I have used it, Androids, Blackberry and Palms for years and the Android is the way to go. I have the Evo right now and love it. iPhone 4 can't even come close. The iPhone 4 may be more powerful but there is already a duel core phone the Motorola Atrix which is out now and can do everything your saying the new iPhone 5 can do already. Apple is way to proprietary and they give you no options to customize your phone. Go Android!

John 5 years ago

If all stated above is true, it is likely I will buy an iPhone 5. However, that ultimately depends on what is available on the Android platform when I'm ready to make my purchase in January of 2012. I'm an Apple fan; I have 3 iPods, 2 Apple TVs, and a MacBook. However, my phone is a HTC Incredible, and your statement about Android phones is completely unfounded. More specifically, the Motorola Bionic will have the ability to do all you mentioned above, with the exception of facial recognition (dual-core processor and 4G included). Hence, I am not delirious; you are overly-dramatic, misinformed, or both.

When is the iPhone 5 coming out


LJC 5 years ago

Have used cell phones for over 25 years and I like iphones. Why I switched to an HTC Desire Z Android after 4 years with an iphone: I could not read 80% of my needed websites that are supported by Adobe Flash, or 50% of pictures sent by e-mail. Also, when travelling internationally, could not use any Apple gift cards purchased and could not return them either. I.E. if your phone is registered in the US and you travel to UK or Canada. The proprietary licensing by Apple, per area, is about as annoying as not being able to read websites or pictures because Apple and Adobe can not seem to strike a deal. Sad state of affairs. Love my HTC - no issues and tons of apps too. Wake up Apple.


ColtX 5 years ago

If what you say is true, the iPhone 5 will not be coming to any carrier other than Verizon. If you research the American mobile networks, T-mobile, sprint and AT&T are no where near 4G speeds, regardless of advertising. Even Verizon is not technically 4G by FCC standards. Also, the iPhones have been coming with GPS preinstalled, but only set to work with preloaded Google Maps unless the end user jailbreaks the device for third party apps. Additionally, there is no way the iPhone 5 will have 64 GB of memory. the iPhone 4 has 512mb, the 3G had 256mb, and the original iPhone had a mere 128mb. Following that trend, having 64 GB is a long shot. even 4GB is a stretch for any mobile handset manufacturer, including apple.

Don't get me wrong, i love a rumor as much as anyone, but please sight your sources or at least authenticate your details. Otherwise these seem like fabrications.

Finding an exploit (flaw in code) which runs at the root level in order to execute unsigned code or dump you into a root shell is how it's acquired. You clearly don't know what a firewall is, or that network problems are completely unrelated to jailbreaking. You need to go to school, you made a fool out of yourself.

CHECK IT OUT!!!

Apple always releases a new iPhone every late spring/early summer. I love Apple's OS. Very simple and intuitive. I actually like the 3gs feel better then the 4. Hoping for newer hardware and a bigger screen of 4".

just to point out some of the points that are being made in this article mainly in the expected feature section video chat on 4g wait thats right that something android has already had for oh wait almost a year now and saying that video chat is on 4g not 3g iphone 4 only runs on wifi for video chat at android runs on 4g or wifi 3g isnt even in the equation anywhere when it comes to video chat not to mention the thunderbolt is video chat with skype so you can talk to anyone anywhere in the world while on 4g or wifi not only apple customers like the iphone and a dual core processor android has already shown phones with that and that doesnt mean anything the thunderbolt has the highest ratings in multiple speed test of any phone to come out in the us including those with dual core that have not come out yet the fact is that iphone has fallen behind the curve and cant keep up anymore the iphone 4 which was really the first model since the original to have a significant difference from the prior model has already out of date and people who still want them just because the have the name iphone on them and think that the steve jobs is the second coming

"The lowest model will come with 32G of space and 64G of memory" - seriously? I agree with the first quoted spec, but 64GB of memory would make it a freaking Cray or something! :-p

REALLY PEOPLE THE IPHONE 5? What is so big about iphones anyway?m My girl has the 4 and she can't stand it. The things people do with a cell phone is just gettin to far outta hand this day and age. NO WOUNDER YOU YOUNG KIDS ARE AS DUMB AS YOU ARE...you spend to much time on your cell phones.

I hate all the crappy comments about iPhone's from 'android' users OMG google designed it a search engine??? not a multi million dollar computer company, the only reason people buy android phones and put iPhones down is that they cant afford one!!! haha losers.

I will get an iPhone. It has to be with T-Mobile, however. I'm not gonna go to AT&T (God forbid!) or Verizon just to get an iPhone. As soon as T-Mobile starts crying the iPhone, I am totally getting one.

The iPhone 5 all hype. The original iPhone was ground breaking, ill give u that. But, Android phones have all these capabilities and the ability to grow exponentially. I just got the evo shift from Sprint and it blows iPhones out of the water. came stock with 800mhz processor which was easily overclocked to 1.8ghz. Stable. There is no way I would ever buy an iPhone. Modding is easier. Importing is easier. The only thing from Apple I like is the ipod. And honestly I can do everything the ipod does on my Android phone. Even syncs with itunes wirelessly over my home network. Push a button and done. This isn't about hating. It's about facts. And the fact is the iPhone will be playing catch-up to Android unless they change their OS and allow easy customizing. I've jailbroken many iphones and rooted many Android phones and it takes less than half the time to root an Android phone as it takes to jailbreak an iPhone. Just facts folks. Don't get all butt-hurt cause your fad is fading. Apple is good for music production and the ipod. That's it.

I think that iPhone 5 is gonna be one of the most amazing gadgets of 2011 and 2012. With new innovations in technology and the things expected to come in the new iphone, it will surely change the way people look at phones and use it.

That's not a review.... Just some love letter of an Apple freak.... I don't like iPhones fir many reasons.... Non one has the right to control what apps and software I install on my machine... I want to increase the memory all i want, not be limited to 16 or 32... My Nokia N8 has a cam of 12 Mp, built-in memory of 32 Gb and a miniSD card of 32 Gb and and I visit sites that run flash no matter what the Apple ppl think... I am Android all the way. What would be fun us hacking the iPhone 5 and run Android on it :)

That was a completely partial review. Clearly you've allowed Apple's brainwashing to overcome you. simple girl.

If you honestly think Apple has ever offered anything "groundbreaking" since the iPod, I already know your too dumb to write a legitabite reviw of an iPhone5. I'm not a fan of any one company but [like ammo] I go for whomever offers the best bang for buck. Apple has been behind in almost every way since even the first iPhone came out. They release hardware that is overspecd and behind the times everytime. 5mp camera on the iphone4 is hardly anything to brag about OP. ONLY thing I would tip the hat to with apple is the screens. Whoever is developing their screens is top notch. Everything else is old news. Everytime apple has come out with a new product, my current phone at the time which is usually a year old by then has smashed it in every technical aspect except the screen. iphone5 will be no different i suspect.

The iPhone hasn't revolutionized anything since the 3G, The dual core processors will be on HTC and Motorola very soon. And ios will be the same icon only based UI controlled by people who will tell you what you can do with the phone. I don't hate the iphone, but really? By the time the iphone 5 comes out, the technology will already be implemented months before by the same phone maker you are bashing (HTC). And talking about iphone technology doesn't make you a uber geek, they are so simple my grandmother can use them. Love your iphone just don't bash other technology without some good facts. The HTC Evo is old and still burns iphones, and you don'y have to use a bumper to make a call :/


NYDiesel 5 years ago

@Jardine, Do you know anything about computers and technology? Android is compiled from Linux, Google is a multi-million dollar software company, not just a search engine. They just programed it. BTW, Apple designed all their Operating Systems on Unix. They even had to borrow names from cisco systems (ios, iphone). I think windows owns them in computing market share.


Mr.T 5 years ago

this was very disappointing. i came hoping to learn more about the iphone 5 not have some girl drool over it. in stead of just saying something is superior, how about offering actual tech specs that compare to those of android phones. I thought about getting an iphone but you just made me realize that iphones are for girls who are tech illiterate, and that's fine. but the whole reason so many people dont like the iphone is it's lack of freedom and options. yes, sometimes simple is better but in terms of a someone who's looking for a phone to personalize and truly make their own, the iphone is not where it's at. There are plenty of other phones that are just as powerful, easy to use and more efficient with power using the android OS. There are a lot of very bad ones as well, it doesnt hurt to do a little bit of research. Everything is pretty much on the internet these days. You cant go wrong with a phone from samsung, and why do i bring up samsung? Because its samsung that makes the chips for your beloved iphone, but hey what do i know. i'm just another anonymous user, scouring for information.

Unfortunately, Telling people to wait for the 5 is kind of silly considering Verizon is not yet contracted for any future iPhones. There chances of getting the iPhone 5 are all riding on the sales of the iPhone 4. I had to flip out on Verizon because miraculously when I was going to upgrade to an iPhone my upgrade got pushed back. I flipped out my whole way to the president of customer service, and he said that Verizon won't get the iPhone 5 until next January. So, Don't hold out because chances are you're going to have to wait a year+ for Verizon to update their network and contract the phone.

I would just like to say thank you to the person that wrote this blog. It was witty and well thought out, anyone who is a loyal Apple customer and iPhone lover should appreciate this. I don't think it was intended for people to take this blog as 100% fact (although some idiots will), it's purely speculation based on how Apple has progressed each and every phone. It's a given they will be working with a 4g network given their release of selling rights to Verizon, and it's a given they will update everything to be bigger and badder, because that's what they do every single time they release a new item. That's kind of the point in a new release, isn't it? Improving a previous model. People need to stop being so serious, listen to what this lady has to say and then shut your mouth if you're just going to criticize her blog. If you don't like it, post your own blog with the 'facts'.

Sprint plans and 4G along with the Iphone is a POWERHOUSE that would set them apart from everyone. I hope it goes to Sprint. I am getting it wherever it goes, but I hope it's Sprint


Eric 5 years ago

haha biggest fanboy ever. It's too bad android has already came out with dual-core processor phones. But hey, apple fanboy's are lost in their own little world. :)


Duke 5 years ago

$500? Even with contract or without? Because the 4g(without contract) was $600 something and with contract, $270 something. $500 for a phone? Hmmm, not sure if it's worth it for a college guy myself. He he. Plus I wonder if we're able to jail break this one too. Ha ha.
