1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Some people just want the new thing. People who spend extra to upgrade to a new phone, instead of waiting for their contract to be up for renewal, fall under this category.

    It's got much better low light performance. That's the main improvement they made to it.

    I upgraded from a 4s and the LTE alone makes it worth it for me. Plus I only pain 80 USD to upgrade since I sold my 16 GB 4s to a friend. (I bought the 32 GB version this time)

    I will also get the 5s when it comes out and I will sell this phone for for at least what I paid for it.

    Oh and I use the camera a lot, that's a plus.

    iPio, do you use tapatalk?

    Swipe left to right on the home screen.

    It's the search function.

    I would post a link but I'm on my phone.

    I heard them say that. I find there is no difference in low light conditions. I think it is smoke and mirrors. They say it, so people see it.

    The iPhone 5 camera processing is way faster. You can take multiple pictures per second compared to one every other second or so.

    I can't speak of it first hand, but enough review sites have said otherwise to satisfy me.

    Fail. I have an EVO for work and it is complete shit. Poor battery life, freezes often and then I have to remove the case and battery cover to rest the stupid thing, the proximity sensor sucks balls, I took it to local Sprint store that does on site repairs and get the response "Yea we get these in here all the time." I could go on and on about that piece of shit. Hilarious story though. Thanks for sharing.

    He said the iPhone 4 which had 5 mp camera. The 4s and 5 both have 8 mp. SO the 5 has more mp and performs better in low light.

    Is there really a universal term for this or did you make this up? WTF is the world coming to?

    Jokes on us iPhone 5'ers. Turns out the October 23 event is to announce a new iPhone. Apparently it will look like the 5 but will have the features of a 2 year old Samsung which is obviously a giant leap forward for Apple. JM who waited, turns out to be a genius and will now leave this thread to start a new one for all of his fellow iPhone 5s owners. He will come back occasionally to mock our now obsolete phones. JM wins this round.
