It seems that Apple has misled us, Huawei and Oppo may have given us the evidence.

Perhaps we can only say that it's the thinnest and lightest iPhone that Apple has ever made.

How can you say that?

I just started a topic, if you don't like, you can stop reading. If some people feel it's worth discussing, it's enough. A topic can't satisfy everyone. Sorry for wasting your 30 seconds again.

In reply to: no

What I read is that the pre-orders are an absolute record: 2 million in 24 hours, compared with a lousy 1 million for the iPhone 4S. So it seems that - while you maybe right about many users maying be disappointed - many more are enthousiastic enough to spend another $199 (or more).

What are YOU disappointed in? What did YOU expect that wasn't delivered?
Be glad: this disappointment save you $199 (or more). I've seem worse disappointments.

ruined by leaks

Perhaps if there were no leaks about the iPhone 5 before the announcement, the new changes of iPhone 5 maybe can give us some surprise. What happened to Apple's secrecy policies?
