    Today at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco Apple announced the newcomer to the iPhone family. The iPhone 5 has a 4-inch 1,136 x 640 pixel, 4G LTE connectivity, A6 chip, weights 112 grams - 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than iPhone 4S. The larger display allows for widescreen display. Apps designed for the previous operating system will not be stretched, but will have black borders. One of the biggest updates is to the camera and iSight. The camera now has an 8 megapixel sensor, 3,264 x 2,448 pixel resolution with backside illumination, hybrid IR filter, five-element lens, f2.4 aperture, is 25 percent smaller and can take panoramic photos. The video camera captures 1080p HD quality. Front-facing camera features 720p support, backside illuminated sensor, and FaceTime works over 3G with iOS 6. Motorola, Samsung & Apple has show their new phones, HTC also has an announcement this month. Looks like everyone will be fighting to win this holiday season and best phone of the year. Do you like the new iPhone 5? I s what you was expecting?

    IMO:
    Not much improvements from the iPhone 4S. Samsung & HTC were planning to sue Apple if the iPhone 5 come with LTE(Which Apple did).

    Samsung and HTC shouldn't sue. LTE is trying to become a new standard so I say don't sue other companies using it.

    Other features:
    New Display - My Galaxy Nexus has a higher res screen
    New Camera - My Nexus has panorama mode.
    iOS6 "The most advanced mobile OS ever". Umm... I'd say Android is much more versatile and extendable than iOS.

    In Conclusion: It's a very, very, very nice device. It looks amazing, its insanely thin but I won't be buying one. This might be because I only bought my current phone a few months ago though.

    Lol not really, out of curiosity isn't the Galaxy Note and S3 significantly better than the brand new iphone anyway, yeah to me it seems the only one fighting to win is Apple since everyone already made something better than it before it was even released.

    Seems that battery life is better now. Hope it last 2 days on my normal usage without recharging

    Edit: New headphones: EarPods

    Honestly, what's the point of a near-720p screen that's that small? And why so much RAM? I bet they could cut a ton of unnecessary crap out of these phones and make them more affordable but still have the exact same features. If consoles came out at this frequency and with such small insignificant upgrades people would be pissed.

    So the same updates for ipad 3 have come to iphone 5. Previously when apple jumped to the next iphone it was something to look forward to. Now it is like becoming more powerful but not special.

    Samsung, just take the lead... just take it, you know.

    And the only real difference between the iphone 4 and 5 will be that the iphone 5 will cost full price again.
    yaaay Apple innovation.

    I had the Galaxy S3 a few weeks ago although it was good I do prefer the selection on apps on iOS.

    OMG APPLE WTF

    This is the prove that they NEED Steve Jobs, they are out of 'ideas'. Look I love that Apple fans enjoy their time but this is just a huge fail.

    I might get the new ipod touch tho, wanna play Chaos Rings

    To be honest I was more impressed by their new headphones than their new iPhone. Also, those new iPods look neat (except the new Nano, I dislike it).
