I haven’t come across yet with a good impression on the iPhone 5 since its announcement last week by Apple. Most write ups say there’s nothing “new” in the new iPhone hence most of its “upgrades” were already present months ago in other smartphone brands.
When i checked the specs of the iPhone 5, i came out with this post– “iPhone 5 is Thinner, Lighter, Taller, and Faster–But Nothing is New!” with this striking summary:
"NOT A SHOCKER ANYMORE HOWEVER, being “thinner, lighter, taller, and faster” is nothing new to all of us."
What others say?

"But we expected more than ‘comparable’ from the much awaited iPhone 5 – we expected a smartphone that blew minds with its awesomeness! And that this new iPhone does not do."
“Why I’m not impressed with the iPhone 5” by: yugatech.com
"Apple is known for its brave innovation that lead to the existence of amazing products. These products are one of the reasons why there’s a sudden rush in the advancement of mobile technology that we are experiencing today. But with the iPhone 5, do you think Apple is still being innovative or just playing catch-up?"

For anyone following the iPhone 5 rumours over the past year, the iPhone 5 will not bring any major surprises, with many of the new features expected – including the new dimensions and the improved A6 chip.

"Those worried about the talk of “disappointment” surrounding the iPhone 5,I suggest you simply go to an Apple Store starting on Friday and try it for yourself. My guess is you’ll immediately recognize just how ridiculous all that bluster actually is. This is the smartphone nearly perfected."
