Be honest, really honest, were you expecting something 'more' from Apple today in relation to the iPhone 5 release, i.e. specs, looks etc.?
I'm not sure why exactly, but I was seriously looking for something 'more'. I do wonder if all the 'rumour' images, specs and the likes over the past few weeks have left me a little (in the voice of Gru's Mum) "Eh". Maybe I was simply expecting Apple to present something TOTOALLY different to all those rumour mills out there to say, "Ha, you know nothing, we tricked you..."
Anyway, share your thoughts...

I wasn't expecting anything that wasn't there...new form factor, new internals, new features, new iOS, new performance...it's an entirely new phone, with the same draw that made me love all the other iPhones."Speed has never killed anyone; suddenly becoming stationary...that's what gets you." - Jeremy Clarkson

Yeah I'm with ya mate. Bit slimmer, bit quicker, bit bigger screen, bit better front camera, bit lighter.
All good evolution features and enough to justify it as a new phone rather than just internal upgrades
But where was the OMG! Moment? You know the retina display moment. Heck even the Siri moment!
I guess you can't revolutionise every time but then again they have got a 2yr dev cycle going on the totally new phones side (I'm not counting s versions that's internal upgrades). Surely enough time for at least one totally killer new thing....

The "meh" attitude that I'm reading abou is, IMHO, partly the lack of flair and the fact that with all the leaks, there wasn't anything new compared to what we had heard was coming. But that doesn't mean that there isn't anything new compared with what we previously had.Curmudgeon and Former Member/Participant
