Apparently the iFOOLS at Cupertino haven't seen the Huawei Android Smartphone which is 6.68mm thick.
Huawei Ascend P1s - Huawei Device Co., Ltd..
Another FAILED iDevice. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is way better. Better screen, better battery, better features, Google Now (better than Siri), larger screen that's TRUE HD, google maps, better Youtube, home screens are HIGHLY customizable so that you can put WIDGETS. Anyone in iLAND know what Widgets are? LOL at iSHEEP.

Although I was pretty sure that all of the leaks were pretty much spot on and that they left me disappointed, I still tuned in to see if Apple would pull some big trick out of their hat. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Almost everything that they unveiled today has been seen and done before somewhere else. While I'm glad that they made the screen larger without going overboard size-wise and added LTE, nothing else really wowed me. Seeing as how I've grown bored with iOS, I was really hoping for something more.

"Haters gonna hate?" Apple releases a phone, people ***** that it's not good enough; or people claim that they're "so glad i gots an s3!!!!". It's rather sickening. Don't like the phone? Tough cookies. Like it? Cool, good for you. All this pointless vitriol is grating on my nerves.

Anyone who says its just a stretched screen needs to go watch the video again .. I'm pumped it looks clean .. Faster wifi .. Lte .. Screen .. Processor .. Camera .. Speakers etc pretty much improved everything .. Even the details of the casing in all black .. I don't see one thing that was not improved spec wise seems like a solid update ..
Makes me wonder thou when are they going to change the home button to a touch sensitive button vs the physical press and click lol

Still a lot of questions, though:
1.) What are the specs on the A6 chip? #cores, etc.
2.) What change in data plans will we all experience now that 4G LTE is native?
3.) What is this new 'Slate' finish on the black iPhone? Is that something that's going to scratch/wear off? Is it paint or some new process?
4.) I didn't notice or hear them talk about the headphone jack positioning. Did that indeed move to the bottom of the device?
5.) What is the advantage of the sapphire lens on the camera? I'm not a photo geek, but I don't think I've ever heard of one before.

It's nothing revolutionary I think it's more refinements and improvements if anything. Realistically I can't see Apple making huge ground breaking changes every single year but it seems like they settling in a making minor but welcome changes from time to time. Their products are consistent though which makes me come back to them year after year (though I have so much stuff on Itunes which kinda ties into that lol)

I remember having an iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3GS was a bit meh as it added speed and a camera that could also do video. So when my contract came up I waited to see what the iPhone 4 had to offer.
Boy did it deliver
Retina display - absolutely amazing!
Much better camera for stills
HD video recording
A front facing camera for pics and video conferencing
A much more premium glass and steel design upgrade over the plasticky 3GS.
These were all decent upgrade features - I'm slightly concerned that Apple is steadily losing its mojo a little bit with each new release.
The 4S brought Siri, better camera with face detection, bump to 1080p for the video recording and dual core. At the time I was a bit meh but when I came out of contract my 4 died so I was kinda forced to go for the 4s. So glad I did. I LOVE Siri can take or leave the Camera upgrades but dual core- what a difference so much faster smoother and sleeker. Not to mentioned better graphics etc in games compared to the 4 versions. My 4 dying was actually a blessing in disguise as the 4s is actually a lot better than it looks on paper against the original 4.
And now we get 5.........
Well it's certainly no 3GS to 4 style jump, it's not even a 4 to 4S really
Breaking it down we have a stretched 4 with LTE (useless to me I live in the UK 4G rollout has not began, the first network due to start is Everything everywhere but this is the smallest network operator in the UK and rollout has not began so basically to us here in blights LTE is a useless feature.
It seems like the step ups and really cool new innovative features are getting fewer and fewer with each new version?!
I must admit I was expecting more really. A full edge to edge screen. Built in projector, built in fingerprint or retina eye scanner. Something more tangible than an extra 0.5" vertical and the totally redundant to me LTE
Oh well theres always next time
