    I was anticipating this phone since iMore published the assumed dates at the end of July. Don't get me wrong, it's great, coming from a 4 I love all the features that you miss with iOS 6 and what not.. But I miss the size of my 4, and the weight. And I'm a bit discouraged that all the apps aren't even optimized for the 5 yet, I pretty much have the 3.5 inch panel on my 5. I don't know, it's just bugging me cause I paid full retail, when I could've bought a 4S on CL and saved like 500 bucks. So maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking it'll get better? Anyone else thinking about their old device in the shadow?

    A lot of my apps have been updated in the past few days. All optimized for iPhone 5. At least 4-5 apps a day.. Soon they all will work with the bigger screen.

    Sounds like you should have waited until devs updated your apps. That's sounds like your major concern. But this was something that was known at announcement. Could have saved some disappointment and couple bucks. But in my opinion apps not optimized doesn't make me miss my 4s especially knowing the apps will be updated soon. Just my thoughts but good luck.

    you're crazy man if you want I'll do a straight up trade with you It will of course get better I think for the last week I've checked and there wasn't one day that there weren't at least 2 apps that were updated. I mean Facebook updated and they are slower than molasses. I definitely don't agree on the weight thing I just came from playing with one in an Apple store and the weight is Crazy!!! How could you miss that? I carry mine in my pocket every day and I feel the weight.

    My only concern so far is is how the thinness might affect taking photos--I'm thinking about rolling without a case but this phone is SO thin that it's actually a little tough to shoot with one hand. Otherwise, I'm loving it, and I was a doubter until I held one.

    I love the look, the speed, the camera, the weight, the length, the screen, all of it! I gave my 4S to my son who passed his 4 down to his younger sister. We are all happy! I think that te first iPhone should have been exactly like this! It's what I've been waiting for!

    It's barely been one day since release, apps will be updated over the next several weeks. The size is fantastic, and it's lighter. You want your phone to be heavier?

    I don't miss the 4/4S even a little bit compared to this phone.

    Learn the value of patience...

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! Wasn't putting down the device at all, I like it a lot. I guess I just got so accustomed to the feel of the 4. But you all are right! I'm glad I've got my iP5 and need to enjoy the deeper features of it! I appreciate the wake up call!

    I understand what the OP is saying. Call me crazy but (so far) I miss the weight of my 4S (I know it's only been a day). I'm not basing the 5 at all, I really like it, but i really got use to the size and weight of the 4S. I know the same will happen w the 5 but I understand the OP's opinion. This is why I'm keeping my 4S as well.

    IMHO - the weight (or maybe thickness) made it easier/faster to type on. I think this may be because I felt the device more, without feeling like I needed to use my index fingers to hold the device.

    I miss my Google Maps! The rest is ok but I completely get what you are saying and kind of agree with you. It will be better in a few weeks.

    It's a change which will take some getting use to.

    Don't get me wrong, the device is awesome and the size and weight is unbelievable.

    Also, the bump in performance is great.

    I guess this shows that even the 4S was/is still a solid device!

    Coming from a 4s I'm loving the 5 all the way! I don't even sweat the apps that have not updated to match screen size. Give it time!

    I wish ncsettings was stock so it's easier to turn on and off cellular data. LTE man handles my battery.

    Miss my jailbreak. But at the same time it's really only loving my iP5 more : it will be AMAZING when jailbroken!

    Apple was all over the fifth row of apps when they launched it. I for one ALWAYS enjoyed it on my 3GS/4/4S. But imagine six rows... and five columns... with a five icons dock. 35 Apps a page.

    Also, getting my shortcuts back... Miss you SB settings. And Folder Enhancer - but at least we can pack sixteen apps now... Zephyr... Gridlock... and then all the tweaks and customizing.

    I'm doing GREAT though!

    Just hold tight. All of the apps will updated soon enough. You have what will probably be the the iPhone screen size for quite some time.
