Whatever the experts & reviews say, I feel that a physical hands-on is the best to decide on whether I should purchase the iP5 or not.

I'm already deciding to switch to.. Ehem.. An Android phone but I'll still get the new iPod touch. Much more worth it at $SGD 398 for 32GB. And it's pretty similar to the new iPhone 5, just that it has slightly lower specs.

looking for tech specs on the A5 and A6 chip and the batteries
Please
Most tech blogs are saying the A6 Soc will have the dual core ARM Cortex A15 CPU which is considered a beast. If true, Apple will be the first to include this in a mass produced mobile device. They also say the GPU is a Rogue chip which is unbelievable.:eek:

Right here
I'm right here. I was wrong. Again. I didn't think last year's model would be called the iPhone 4S and I didn't think this one would be called the iPhone 5. My iPhone name prediction skills really suck. You, on the other hand, are quite good at this! You got them both right and my hat goes off to you. (y) You should have bet me that $100! I always make good on my bets. :p
I know! I should have bet you. Dang! I'm just having a little fun......nothing serious people. I did get her to post tho :)

Sounds like the Exynos 5250. Thought Apple was dumping Samsung as the SoC supplier. Guess not.

They are similar and rumor has it Samsung will have the Exynos 5 in a device in 2013.

I didn't know the iPhone didn't have panoramic shots. Really? No app for it until the iP5?

My one hope is the thing is completely problem free bluetooth wise.

I really wish we would have gotten an LED indicator. :-(
No thanks. And technically you can make your flash indicate when you have a message. Annoying if you ask me. I like to sleep

Tried it, the flash is obnoxious. The LED on my work BB never hinders my sleep and it can always be disabled. Pretty simple...

I was totally with you until you said BB. First rule of eic is no BB.

LED notification is so 2003. The message is important enough that you need to know its there but not important enough to pick up your phone and check? Come on.
