iPhone 5 haters bewilder me
There are numerous threads all regarding this very topic so I'll just reply here and call it a day. Seriously people, what did you expect? Why is it that everyone expects Apple to revolutionize the cell phone each and every year? It's just not happening. In fact I beg anyone who believes this to tell me one other hardware manufacturer who has revolutionized the cell phone besides Apple in 2007? Samsung? Motorola? HTC? None is the correct answer.
This phone looks a bit like the 4S but is better in every way. What else do you want? Most of you cried about wanting a bigger screen and LTE. They gave it to you. Not only that but they slimmed it down quite a bit and made it lighter. Yet it's still the most solid hardware of any mobile device out there. Now stop crying about it and get ready to pre order as we all know you will be regardless of all the complaining.
*And regardless of your stance I still respect it, sort of.

I've used blackberry Nokia in the past and ive been using iPhone 4 from a long time now and the quality of the product is simply brilliant. I don't know what more people expect from apple. I just saw a handson video of iPhone 5 and the built quality and speed of the phone is brilliant. I would definitely go for iPhone 5.

I'm in the same boat with you Jeremy. People all I've my threads saying how they are "disappointed". Really?? They want this revolutionary product. The 5 is a very nice leap and a significant improvement over the 4S. I just say, "If you don't like it, don't buy it!"
To me it's just a stem or byproduct of an entitleistic mentality. Spoiled brats is what they are.

I am one that isn't too excited about the 5 and will not be preordering. I will wait and play with one first then decide where to go from my iPhone 4. I think some of the "hate" some people have stems from the fact that Apple didn't really do anything this time that separated them from the field hardware/software wise. I would argue its because Samsung/HTC/Nokia is currently making the leap Apple did from the 2G to 3G or 3GS to 4. Apple was so far ahead that updates will now be smaller and less significant than other companies (Samsung) who were so far behind they have a ways to grow. Eventually everyone will level off as Apple has now and Apple will have to come up with something huge to separate again. Just my thoughts, no hate just not necessarily thrilled.

Apple brings to the table the changes people really wanted, retained what people loved about the iPhone, and gave us a phone that is cosmetically beautiful (in my opinion)...and people still complain that its drab, boring and "nothing new". What do you want? A giraffe shaped phone with solar panels and a RED developed IMAX camera?

I'm not disappointed in the phone. If I had the $ I'd buy it but I'm not super impressed with it. I'm not hating but I'm just going to stick with my 4S unless I come across the 5 cheaper then full retail. I'd like to have 4G but it's not worth 750 bucks

they are a unique breed, that's for sure. they rattle off their diarrhea of the keyboard and if you disagree with them then you are an instant fanboy. if i go to a Toyota forum saying how crappy Toyota's are and Honda's are better, i know what to expect. why is that so difficult to figure out??
i'll never know why they think their words matter
