Some “not-so-good” Impressions on the iPhone 5


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.

MG Siegler of TechCrunch has this to say on the disappointments over iPhone 5:
"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."
