Srsly, this is the first headline from the announcement. 5 rows of icons. lol

Also it's 20% lighter than its predecessor, 2 times as fast, and has a taller (but not wider) screen at 4".



meh

I am curious as to why they went with a taller, but not wider screen... makes little sense to me. The 4" screen isn't an issue... my Rezound is 4.3" and the Nexus is like 4.5" which, imo is about as big as I think is reasonable for a phone...

Apple will sell a ton of the iPhone 5's I have no doubt, but there are phones on the market now that are better.

Galaxy S 3 blows it out of the water IMO.

now? the iphone has been towards the bottom of the tech-battles since its release. it was 2009 before it even had the capabilities to record video. for comparison's sake, saddam hussein's 2006 execution was recorded with a cell phone.

I'm about to get a new smart phone as my touchscreen is a POS. What is the best bang for my buck?
