iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S - First Look

Tyler Durden's picture

If this is what 0.3-0.6% of US GDP (according to JPMorgan) looks like, then the US is truly in desperate need of not only QE3, but 4, 4S and 5. Also, since it is not on the front, we can only assume the "Samsung Inside!" sticker is on the back.

Looks like Apple might need to give that billion back to Samsung ....

At least let the sweat shops make something new for once so they don't get so bored.

Another Apple trinket that was created for one purpose, to take money from all the iStupids.

well we wouldn't want to be taking GOOnbubbles strategic direction of pissing red ink all over the floor

Another tool for 'american' engine of productivity.

Looks like that 'Americans' are going to produce much more than they consume...

 The "!fone" on the right looks like the "Chicago Teachers Union" version.

So you pay a load of money for some icons to clutter up your screen?

Edit, err one extra icon

Zero Govt's picture

the iPhone5 Vid is now up on Apples frontpage where you can catch up on all the stuff you're behind on ...which is alot

Like the longer display? and... The kool aid?

hedgehog9999's picture

Can it autofill an address list when you type an address for a search?

My SAMSUNG does that and I can read the screen a little better and it is not so damn sensitive to trigger mistakes!!!

I got a wife. I got kids. I don't need some fucking phone talking and telling me what to do too. The last thing I want when I get out of the house is an electronic leash

You are commanding it, not the other way around. lol it just gives you info when you ask for it. It's like your personal slave.

pragmatic hobo's picture

but you can see more icons now.

Racer's picture

Has it only got one screen available? Not that I really care anyway...

Zero Govt's picture

ZH, the new iPhone5 Vid is up on Apples front page as of now... you can suspend/scrap the poor photos of the 2 iPhones suspended in honey

This is ingenious! Nothing is more terrifying to an Apple user than someone having a longer iPhone!

Zero Govt's picture

nothing is terrifying to an Apple iPhone user... they've got the best money can buy, it works smoothly, efficiently and faultlessly and makes the other devices look like also-rans

as do their iPads, laptops and iMacs

oh and doesn't the i5 look f'n cool too 

edifice's picture

Hey buddy... Size doesn't matter... ;)

JuliaS's picture

I'm hearing iPhone 5 will have a tighter hole too... ahem... I mean socket.

edifice's picture

And you can stuff it both ways.

I watched the apple rollout today and it made me feel soooo much better about my NOK stock. Windows 8 phone blows the apple out of the water technically (seriously) , now if we can just overcome the apple histeria.

css1971's picture

Apple just blew it.

Nokia are 2 years ahead with their Lumias. The list of technical superiorities is embarassingly long (wireless charging and pureview cameras just to start), the design is far better, the user interface is better, faster to use than the competition. I don't particularly like MSFT, as a long time Linux user but on the Lumias the OS works very well.

Even the latest Samsungs don't stack up.


(oh yeah also long NOK)

if in 200 years there should still be people on the planet, and they find out what their ancestors cared (and cared not) about, omg, what an embarrassing thought.

Ya forgot to mention that the new Iphone now sends data directly to the FBI, increasing their productivity. (Sarc)

When does the Obama phone version come out?

Rest assured that the Lemmings will be trampling over one another to get their hands on one. Gotta love the USA's rabid consumption for anything hyped!

You might want to think about changing your pic, just in case you get your posts confused with FUU.

The email on the 5

"You got f'ked"

Do you know what this means!!! .... it will change  E V E R Y T H I N G !!!




EDIT: ... looks like a Samsung copy to me ... jus sayin

Perhaps the most amusing part of the Apple ethos are the rather generic promotional videos. All have similar keywords and phrases:

"It's revolutionary... blah blah... It's the best thing we've ever done... blah blah... This manufacturing process is unique in the industry... blah blah... It's thinner and lighter..."

are we there yet's picture

On the iphone5 will Siri talk dirty to nauty masters? I bet Bernankie would pay for that feature.

this is it! go long!!!

UGrev's picture

in 3 years it will be iWhat? iWho?  Apple will fade back into "nothing-burger" status. 

TWSceptic's picture

I like how Apple always thinks about the people using it, unlike the other brands who just want to show off with 'better specs'. For example: they kept the width the same so you can type with one hand just like on older models. It looks great as always. But I'm happy with my 3GS even though I could buy the new one. I rather buy more silver and gold instead.

same shit, different name

That's the reason why we have a situation of 1% vs 99%.. Mindless serf keep on getting poorer and more brainwashed by getting themselves scuked into these matrix via all these 3C devices! When I was young, I read science fiction story that said the end of human civilization will happen when the robot rise. Now I begin to think the human civilization will end when they get sucked into gigantic matrix and become part of machines, the robot won't even need to fire a single laser gun.

iPhones do everything great except be a phone.

"An iPhone 5 back-plate run through in front of me almost every 3 seconds. I have to pickup the back-plate and marked 4 position points using the oil-based paint pen and put it back on the running belt swiftly within 3 seconds with no errors. After such repeat action for several hours, I have terrible neckache and muscle pain on my arm. A new worker who sat opposite of me gone exhausted and laid down for a short while. The supervisor has noticed him and punished him by asking him to stand at one corner for 10 minutes like the old school days. We worked non-stop from midnight to the next morning 6 am but were still asked to keep on working as the production line is based on running belt and no one is allowed to stop. I'm so starving and fully exhausted."

"When I walked into the production floor after passing through the metal detector door, I heard loud sounds of machinery engines and a very dense of plastic smell. Our supervisor warned us: 'Once you sit down, you only do what you are told.' The supervisor finally present us the back of the iPhone 5 and shows it to all of us and said: 'This is the new unleashed iPhone 5 back plate, you should be honored having the chance to produce it.'
