Depends what you're looking for. I'm not impressed with the specs on the screen and lack of features found on other platforms, but I'm psyched about the camera and battery life (high ranking priorities for me).

My 4s battery life was nothing special but the camera does have me intrigued. Would like to see review takes on the camera. Also, they need to go into detail if the actually cared about sq this time and placed a decent audio dac in there.

New connector. It's that small one we've seen leaked. Called Lightning. It's reversible.

Don't think panorama mode exists in iOS officially. Even unlocked I don't think it stitches and removes artifacts the same as in iOS 6/iPhone 5.

Maybe you use more than me in a day, but my old iPhone 4 could go several days without charge and medium usage. That's what I've been looking for since and have yet to find it.

so far I like the form factor and size. Do think it should of been 4.2 at least though. The new connector is a total scam to make money. Show the new connector which looks flimsy followed by adapter right after lol. If it wasn't a glorified app drawer again and 4.2 I would consider daily driver. Might pick one up to mess around with and a few ofc to sell to the isheep lol.

Sidenote: where's raz to say gods gift to man came again lol.

I'm surprised they introduced the new connector without mentioning anything about what it offers. They pointed out that it was smaller and reversible which I suppose is pretty awesome. But Apple typically talks about the experience and what it "does" not what it is. This time they just said "hey it's smaller which is good for phones and reversible" without talking about anything new it brings to the experience.

At least if they did, I missed it.

Something I really would like seeing in Maps (and is consistent with the Apple ethos imo) is freaking BICYCLE navigation. No dice with iOS 6/iPhone 5.

Honestly after seeing WP8 I'm thinking they win right now. At least the icons on WP8 are dynamic, even if arranged in a "grid" pattern.

I've been happy with my iphone 4, it's just been getting slow and dated. There's really nothing too crazy I want in a new phone, just for it to be faster, better on the battery life, and the large screen is a plus.

The improved front and rear cameras are nice and I do like the design. I am satisfied.

NFC would have been a nice feature but it's still a ways out.

4G LTE is a huge bonus. After using my ipad3 side by side with the iphone the 4G just blows it the living **** out of the water. It's like 56k vs a 10meg broadband.

"iOS 6 is the most advanced OS for any phone. And it powers the iPhone 5."

I would be so ashamed to say that crap lord. Features that were built into android phones last year are new to ios.

Well, I love Windows Phone, I think it's the only truly innovative thing to hit the market in recent years. This, to me, is yet another iPhone, nothing special. For instance, I'd never give voice commands to my phone, so Siri is pretty much of no interest to me. Everything else is more or less already present in other operating systems?

Wtf did they just justify the new connector by saying they needed space to fit the lte chip. Anyone else thinking the new connector looks flimsy?

it should get the app support that wp7 was missing also like native code support. i think alot of app development was held back because WP7 was limited in the code compatibility department.

Lol, well, I use my phone for talking, messaging, sometimes surfing (rarely, once you have a tablet, you forget about your cellphone's browser), sometimes taking pictures and GPS (rarely). The screen on a mobile phone is far too small for any serious usage, and the battery can't take it, anyway. Tablets are the way to go, as for cellphones, I want a good screen, a good camera and a good battery. Lumia 920 has all that, and it looks a lot better than iPhone 5. The OS is also much more modern and better looking IMHO.
