    Doesn't matter... Apple will NOT release a new iPhone until the summer/fall time frame... Write it down. In ink. Go ahead, use a Sharpie.

    I'm saving your post so I can show it to you when Apple releases the 5S in March.

    While this could make sense to swap release time frames since the iPad is more likely to be a gift... I'm doubtful they'll bring the phone to March.

    I'm not saving this post because when nothing is released in the spring, it'd be more awesome to let it just vanish away into oblivion...there will not be a new iPhone in the Spring.

    As long as I own an i-Device I'll be here. Still waiting for Apple to entice me to an iPhone, but not impressed enough right now to make the switch from Android. My (now outdated but still usable) iPad 3 will get me through on the tablet side for now.

    Glass durability is not as good as the older models, Im sure "some" will disagree but I have noticed hairline scratches in the glass coating where on the i4 it never scratched.

    Besides that the i5 is a great phone.

    I think if there were no mockups, no leaks, no 'WSJ' confirms this or that, I think the 5 would have had a much better reception. Most of us can admit we did look up articles on the 5 before it came out. Think back to the first iPad. No one knew what to expect. That keynote blew me away. The following years, and I blame leaks, the thrill has lessened on each Apple Announcement. I do admit the new iMacs and the 13inch Retina Macbook Pro blew me away.

    Today, sh*t they're already predicting the iPhone 6 will have this and that. And its sad, when the product is released, a lot of us get disappointed about what we were 'expecting' and never got.

    Anyway, yeah. Impressed with the Five. Fast, clear, calls sound much better. Sure theres some bugs with the OS but it still is a darn bad *** phone.

    I still miss my StarTac. That was the baddest phone around. I also remember thinking how cool I was when I got my first car phone installed in my Honda Civic!

    Default Is anyone else just not thrilled or impressed with the Five?

    Well, I decided to toss my 5 on eBay. I just wasn't that thrilled with it. So I am on my backup 4 for now, but I am going back to android. Not that I think the iPhone and iOS are junk, because I don't. But for ME and MY NEEDS, android suits me better at this time.

    I will keep this 4 on my Verizon account and keep my unlimited data alive, but I plan to buy one of the new Google unlocked Nexus 4's and toss a Straight Talk sim in it and see if I like AT&T enough to give up my unlimited data.

    Of course this is all contingent on the buyer of my iPhone o eBay paying me. As of yet, the winner has not paid....

    I upgraded from a 4 and love it. Hated that I had to set it up as a new phone to fix battery drain but not too much of a problem.

I think a moderate update to the iPhone in March makes perfect sense, followed by a full blown restyled iPhone 6 in October. As like you, this is just my opinion.

    I see your point and yes technology is changing on a daily basis. This is just my opinion too...I believe that Apple wanted to replace the whole product line with the Lightning Connector because it's those little details that seperate Apple from the competitors. It would have been an unbalanced product line had the iPad not received the Lightning. And while doing this they tweaked the A6 chip and implemented it since the Lightning was being installed. Now that the whole iOS lineup has been updated I think Apple will revert back to their once a year productions. With the current reorganization of top management, I think this is a period where Apple can focus on internal issues.

    I have a 4S. I have used a 5 though and it's not any more impressive. The quality of the pictures that each phone takes is nearly identical. The speed seems almost equal to me. The .5 inch bigger screen isn't all the much useful. Not having a 30 pin would be a nightmare because of all my 30 pin accessories. I actually think the colors on the 5 are way over saturated. The design of the 4/4S is better in my opinion too. The aluminum of the 5 looks ugly. Plus there's nothing the 5 can do that the 4S can't.

    Yeah if I'd have upgraded from a 3GS or 4 I'd think the 5 was the bees knees. However it does little to impress me over my 4S.

    I love my iPhone 5. My only complaint is that I wish there were decent dock options for it. I loved having a dock sitting on my desk for my iPhone 4.

    I agree with the dock statements. Also, I have a pretty awesome griffin car charger, but that's pretty much useless now.

    That 30 pin to lightning adapter is a bit of a disappointment. You can't dock the iPhone 5 into any 30 pin accessory or device comfortably. Except just the 30 pin USB chord. Just my opinion. Hope a desktop dock is released soon.

    I did finally get my money. Took a few days. The phone actually shipped out to the new owner earlier today. New owner should have it no later than Monday.
