    Wait wait wait...let me get this straight....they improve battery life on the new iPhone?

    How when the iPhone 4 standby time is 300 hours yet iPhone 4s is 200 hours.
    How when the iPhone 4 WiFi Web time is 10 hours yet iPhone 4s is 9 hours.

    Am I missing something?

    Mind you at least they have brought the Camera up to HTC standards and finally introduced a microdock that allows MicroUSB charging!

    But no other company makes a big song and dance about how this phone is the best thing since the last sliced bread they released. I have only now just started seeing occasional adverts for the SGS2, I haven't been bombarded by BBC tech news reports about the SGS2, or adverts constantly proclaiming "if you dont have a samsung, you dont have a samsung"

    apple whip their customers into a frenzy with drip fed rumours and then nobody is allowed to feel cheated that all they've done is pretty much give the phone a spit polish?

    if you bought a new car and six months later the car company said we have amazing news, you will want to buy this car soooo much, and then you find out all they've done is add one sticker on the steering wheel, you'd feel let down.
    it just seems nobody is allowed to feel let down by apple. if they bring out a new phone its groundbreaking, if they rehash an old phone its building on fantastic tech, if they attempt to block every other phone and tablet in the world its a good thing.

    I'll stick to my HTC Desire HD (well, I have to really, I've got another 18 months on the contract...). But even if I didn't have to, I'd stick with Android.

    I just don't like the OS on iPhones. The whole 'single button' thing annoys me, as does iTunes.

    My contact has just run out. I would have been tempted by the IPhone 5 but I think i'm just going to keep my phone and go on a sim only deal. Not worth upgrading.

    Someone mentioned about the chips being more powerful...yes they are, but in return they consume less power according to Apple, so the maths doesnt add up to a longer battery life. They allegedly consume 5% less battery with the new chip than the old chip does due to the efficiency of it, so how does that tie in with the extended battery life? Yes it has more standby time, quite considerably, but standby = not touching the phone, or letting anybody phone or text you...will that ever happen? no.

    So Apple once again have rehashed one of their phones, whilst yes the tech beneath it may be good, it is still behind many other brands (HTC, Samsung, Nokia) for the technologies used (camera's, dual core chips etc).

    All they are doing (and doing well I must say) is hyping up the phone with slightly outdated technology, but making it look good in the process!

    now more importantly, how many will rush out to buy a phone that is identical to the phone released 15 months ago (because slightly better camera and battery aren't exactly new features).
    Itís a little more than that. Itís the fastest phone on the market by a long shot with up to x7 more graphical power putting it miles ahead of all other phones out now. It really is a large speed increase.

    From a gaming prospective itís an Xbox360 in your pocket. No need for a PSP or DS.

    Key Word... "Upto" none of the current software used on an iphone will ever get the max output that they are bragging about so nobody can give it a full on test!
