No surprises really with the new iPhone 5, bigger screen, new connector etc... Personally I won't be buying it, my old trusty 'smart' phone fits my needs. I'd rather put the cash towards something else, like a nexus 7 tablet.

The iphone 5 doesnt have anything that makes it obviously different/superior to the iphone 4. So if i had a iphone 4, i wouldnt feel any need to get it. however, i don't have an iphone but for the same reason, i still don't feel the need to get it.

I'm mostly interested in the iOS 6 update, which I don't need the new device for. I'll likely be waiting until they add more meaningful changes to the product to upgrade.

I feel like new Apple products do relatively well because the keep the prices almost identical to their previous models, but give hardware boosts. I think it somehow makes previous owners feel like their fully-functional devices are somehow outdated and they need to upgrade.. At least that's how I felt when I bought my MBP, and then a they released the newer models with i5 processors. Then I realized that for what I do, I happy enough with what I have!

Also, I will not be buying the new iPhone5. Android, baby!

Don't see the point. Too expensive for very few significant upgrades.

I have the 4s so I will just wait for my next upgrade to see what is out. The bigger screen seems nice though.

Nope. Got the Moto Droid RAZR and I love it. Wouldn't get an iPhone for nothing.

I have the 3gs at the moment, so i will probably upgrade, but for anyone who has a 4S there is no point, unless you want a bigger screen.

My friends were disappointed because, everyone waited the grand i5 and when it launched it looked just like the photos that floated around on the net for months.

No, I will not buy it.
My experience with an iPhone 3G was more than enough, I hated it.

I currently have a HTC One X and love it.
