"You're quick to label....."
My goodness, that is what the original poster did, twice! "want to be disappointed" and "find fail". And it was not limited in scope. It applied to any who might raise a concern about a proposed iPhone5 and how it might appear. The OP dismisses any criticism with a preemptive Ad Hominum attack.

I'm not sure what people were expecting in the iPhone5 to make it significantly different than previous models. I could have all but guaranteed the following:
1. It won't have a physical keyboard. If you were waiting for one like a Blackberry, don't hold your breath.
2. It will have one home button and a sleep button. Were there really people expecting more buttons?
3. It will be a slate form factor. It certainly wasn't gonna be a flip phone.
Once you have those basics down, the rest is size dimensions, size of the screen, thickness of the phone. Location of the headphone jack is really a minor detail which probably won't affect many buyer's decisions. The new dock connector, again, a minor detail and not really a deal killer.

Well you are persistent. But you are in the wrong thread. Read carefully the title of this thread. Focus on the words "IPhone 5 Rumored Photos". This was pointed out to you before. Your comments, however well-intentioned, are not suited to this thread. It isn't about being right or wrong, it is about being on target.
Nice hot dog. Thanks for sharing.

Based on your line of thought, the iPhone 5 could have a trackball and wheel and you would be pleased and spill the same non-sense for those of us who were disappointed.
Sean, do you still not realize that this thread is discussing the leaked photos only and not anything else? We've all seen the photos and if we do not like then, this is the tread to comment on. If that upsets you, then stop commenting.
It's already been mentioned that the S3 will have JB Q3 so that is what I am waiting for if I do take that route. And if the iPhone 6 (2013) is a better improvement, then I'll consider going back but I'm not going to get the iPhone because it is "cool" and has an Apple logo on it like many will do (and you know who you are).

I understand this thread is discussing leaked photos...its not a real difficult concept to grasp. Understand that I'm simply pointing out how silly such passionate distaste is from many of you over these leaked photos...because of the fact that there's nothing factual about them. It's like going on rotten tomatoes 2 weeks before a movie is released and reading some obscure review saying a film is going to suck...deciding, based on that, that it will suck...and then flailing around like an ***** reporting that the movie sucks. Again, i understand this is the thread to react to the subject at hand (leaked photos), but don't be surprised when people who've watched this happen year after year sit back, laugh at you and tell you to chill out and wait for the official releases...it's actually humorous some of you are still on about it to be honest, you guys are like doppelgängers of members from years past.

Sean I don't believe you are laughing. Your response indicates much frustration and anger. You are putting a round response into a square hole. I think most understand you have no opinion about leaked photos except that they are leaked and are not valid for discussion.

lol...i assure you there's no frustration, and certainly no anger...boredom maybe, a desire to retort for the sake of doing so most likely, but other than that, its just pretty silly honestly.
I never cared to offer an opinion on the photos because they are hot dogs. And now this conversation is quite boring (in a rounded square hole).
As for how it looks in your hand - I'm sure that wasn't hard to mock up. Put ANY of the OLD iPhones in your hand and stretch the height.
(thanks to the poster though for sharing)
Help me recall... last year when we all hoped to get the teardrop iPhone 5, there were a lot of 3rd-party case leaks. Were there part leaks to go along with it?
I really hope the parts we see floating around are some knockoff parts from generations past and not the real deal.
I'm just ready for it to be announced. I do not get any ATT cell service where I live and I can't use a MicroCell since the upload on the DSL is too slow. I have to switch to Verizon and am ready for the phone to be announced so that I can make a decision and get a cell phone that works.

Maybe Apple is taking taking the approach with iPhone that Microsoft took with the Xbox. Let it live for 10 years and then do a big overhaul. No doubt the "big overhaul" will be nice but I doubt it is this release.
