    You had a defective unit. My battery life on my GS3 crushes the battery life I had on my 4s. I've owned every iPhone since the first version and I just recently switched to the GS3 and I can honestly say that the iPhone doesn't hold a candle to what the GS3 can do. The one and only thing the iPhone does better is take better low light photos. That's it. I'm really hoping Apple does something big with this next phone or else they will be left in the dust.

    It takes about 2 days to get used to it. Unless you have small hands. Then I can understand.
    I have both. What exactly do you think the GS3 can do that the iPhone can't? Specifically?

    The back will be unibody with glass on the top and bottom. The phone will be taller and thinner. It's going to be amazing and consistent with Apple's "little by little" evolution of products.

    And if anyone STILL doubts this isn't the real deal, you can already see that iOS 6.0 perfectly displays a 1136 x 640 resolution which adds one more row of icons to the screen. Any other resolution it just scales to fit. For reference, the 4/4S has a 960x640 resolution.

    Apple doesn't need to change anything. What the have works for the majority of their consumer base and their yearly record numbers in sales proves that. Apple doesn't cater to some of the changes you see Android pursuing such as huge screens and highly moddable OS's because they're not competing against Android and that's never what they've done. iOS 6.0 isn't going to drastically change ever and hoping it does is just pointing out you have no idea how Apple does things.
    If you really believe for one second that Apple isn't competing, then you sir clearly have NO idea about how Apple REALLY does things.

    Did everyone see that apple is going to skip 4g lte tech and go to 5g lte? I saw it in a picture the other day.

    What a dorky-looking phone! And that's coming from an owner of 3 previous-gen iPhones. :-/

    Show me a single change they've done to the phone that has been a direct response to ANYTHING Android has done before. When i said conpeting I meant that their design arent governed by the need to beat Android or anyone else. The iPhone both from a hardware and software standpoint, has changed very little from where it started as far as usability. Apple didn't get into the phone market to compete with others. They get into it to define it and everyone else has (understandably) been playing catch up since.

    The bigger screen is a huge change for apple and one I'm still surprised they're doing now. That said, with this third iOS resolution Apple is opening it up the door for developers to design apps to be truly universal and resolution independent, which will certainly come in handy if the rumors of a smaller iPad have any truth to them.

    I really hope this is not the next iPhone. Apple needs something different than a longer iPhone 4/4S. Guess we will know soon enough.

    I guess in the 8th generation iPhone apple will make it wider. I really like Apple's product but the SGIII is looking a lot better.
    True that!
    I NEED A JOB! Can anyone help???

    All that's the same is the white color on the front and the shape. Otherwise everything is different. Your all still gonna buy it either way.

    I just played with the Samsung Galaxy S3 today in the Verizon store (I never go in there) - this next iPhone better be spectacular with competition like that.

    A little taller. Thinner. I think it's gonna be nice. I just wanna know if it will carry a gig of ram or a quicker processor. With the more real estate that they use with it being taller they can equip more hardware

    For those who haven't figured this out yet. The leaks come from Apple competitors who don't want you interested in the next iPhone.
    Is this not obvious?

    OK, so they've reduced the amount of vertical scrolling required - but to behave and feel like a bigger screen, it has to do what Samsung did with the Galaxy Note and at least retain or ideally, widen the aspect ratio.
    If you've ever used a long, narrow screen and a Galaxy Note, you'll know exactly what I'm referring to.

    In terms of the web-browsing experience, they'd have been better widening the aspect ratio - not narrowing it.
    Verdict = Fail
