Re: Official iPhone 5 Thread

If my friend wants this but isn't a degen that will be up at 2AM to order it, am I capable of ordering it and paying and having it sent to their address for them? I can't remember the process this entails with regards to phone #/billing etc? I believe everything would be fine as nothing really happens until they open it up and plug it in etc?

Re: Official iPhone 5 Thread

This phone release brings me a windfall of good fortune as it were. My sister wants to get one and leave her android behind, so she is gifting me her less than 1-year old HTC Vivid. My wife, while she LOVES her Galaxy Note, finds it difficult to deal with her inability to stuff it into one of her pockets. At first she was going to keep both and switch sims as desired, until I revealed to her that the sims are incompatible. She thinks she will get the iPhone 5 thusly because she feels pretty strongly about putting her phone in her pocket. As such I will also be gifted a Samsung Galaxy Note.

I am pretty stoked about the iPhone 5 being released.

Re: Official iPhone 5 Thread

Not regretting getting a GS3 a little while ago at all now, thought this phone might make me sad about it but I was pretty underwhelmed reading about it considering everyone's expectations.

How? It was more inline with the rumors than any previous Iphone. The only credible rumor that didn't come true was the location of the head phone jack. The biggest thing missing that the S3 has is NFC. I'm not regretting getting an S3 either but this release was the definition of exactly meeting expectations.

Re: Official iPhone 5 Thread

How much extra does it cost to get one without the TechnoBuffalo ad on the homescreen?

Eh, I think this is a bigger step up. Bigger screen and 4G are relatively big steps, IMO far bigger than Siri.

Obviously this is pure speculation, but I would think this would be less fragile now because the back is mostly metal as opposed to all glass.

Yeah, pretty much this, except the headphone jack rumor I heard was that it would be on the bottom, and that is where it ended up. Which rumor are you talking about?

Re: Official iPhone 5 Thread

Did it end up on the bottom? I didn't see a picture just the TWIT live coverage of the keynote, they said the jack on the touch was on the bottom but not the phone, that's what I was going off of.

Am I the only that's disappointed by the new look? It looks completely out of proportion. Going to try out the Galaxy Note and Nexus later today.

You might be taking the Zoolander analogy too literally.

I am by no means blown away, but I don't know what else people wanted here.

Like kerowo said, this is the definition of meets expectations. Their biggest problem this time around vs 3G to 4g is that people has such high expectations going into it and things are less secret now then they were in the past.
