Be honest, really honest, were you expecting something 'more' from Apple today in relation to the iPhone 5 release, i.e. specs, looks etc.?

I'm not sure why exactly, but I was seriously looking for something 'more'. I do wonder if all the 'rumour' images, specs and the likes over the past few weeks have left me a little (in the voice of Gru's Mum) "Eh". Maybe I was simply expecting Apple to present something TOTOALLY different to all those rumour mills out there to say, "Ha, you know nothing, we tricked you..."

Anyway, share your thoughts...

The only thing I'm disappointed in is the screen was only made longer & not wider. Spec wise I'm not disappointed & I'm liking the black design as far as the black bezel & buttons.

I want a bigger screen, better speakers, better
Looking design. It's barely better than the 4s and the 4s is barely better than the 4. I have a messed up 4 and I might switch brands

I expected something like the transformation from the 3GS to the 4. That was awesome. This is so so. It's a nice phone but the competition is going to be ahead by the time the next iPhone comes out (many believe it is already).

I didn't want that. I wanted a super upgrade. This isn't it

There is a bigger screen, and better speakers! It's a lot better then the 4S.

Twice the cpu, twice the graphics, bigger screen, thinner form factor, better cameras, better battery, smoother GUI than any other phone, plenty of bells and whistles with the hardware as well as with iOS 6, and the whiners come out. Just like every year. LOL....

ya i'm not sure the "whiner" title was warranted. i too wanted a much greater redesign than what i was given and if you followed along with the gizmodo live feed they were feeling the same way. i was always in the camp that wanted a bigger phone. and yes, this phone is technically bigger but if you've seen the shots of the 4s in the 5 shell, you'll see that there really is not that much of a difference. i do like that they have upgraded the innerds but anyway.

i also don't think the "gramps" title was warranted aswell haha

The biggest disappointment for me is in the storage space. Apple always wants to make things thin and forgets about making their storage bigger. Thin looks good, but most people that play games on the iPhone want a bigger harddrive. Even the smallest games end up taking up over 100MB's once you start using it. Most racing games, or any game with good graphics will end up being around 1GB. Most teens are buying smart phones and most of them have their iPhones full of games. Unfortunately, with the small storage space we are not able to have as many games as we'd like.

Games is one thing, then there's music and HD videos. We need more storage space.

I'm not sure you're aware of the internal upgrades this beast has. You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. With the new hardware, apps are going to be amazing. The A6 SoC is the fastest at this time.

I was a little bit disappointed too. I just wasn't impressed this time around. I would have wanted something bigger for the iPhone 5. They should have released this one as the 4s imo. Oh well.
