Personally speaking, i dont see any improvement other than the screen in the new iphone. Simply speaking the new Nokia Lumia 920 trumps it in every section. So who plans on getting this overpriced yesteryear tech? Oh and there's no NFC either :)

apple iphone 5 is very much a transitional phone i think. this model comes with a very unique processor which has a lot of apple's own tech. and it is faster than any other mobile processor in the market today. call me crazy, but this is a pretty solid indication that apple wants to own the tech powering the processors on all their products. one day intel could find itself losing the mac market with apple developing their own processors that could run their future desktop operating systems.

If Apple iPhone 5 would cost same as the US price that is 199$ which is a merely Rs.10k then every common man in india would be owning an iPhone 5 as their primary phone for daily use but only minus point is that Apple has priced the base iPhone model for a whooping Rs.48,000 INR which is comparabily 4 times the cost of it in the US, ye Apple sirf nainsafi indian logo ke saath hi kyon karta hain, after all india has the second largest mobile phone subscriber in the world after china, if Apple price their iPhone 5 at Rs.10k than they would make a humongous profit for themselves.

In other words apple wants world dominion? lol

But you have to agree the phone itself has no significant improvement, processor might be good and all but what the point in cutting the new technologies? to top it off, you can even send files using bluetooth, i wonder why its th

You know those people are bound by contract right?

Already repenting buying iPhone 4 man!
Good luck with that!

seriously? are you going to ignore the point that these are subsidized pricing? and you are required to pay 40-60 dollars on a mobile plan per month for two years?

apple charge USD 650 for unlocked iPhone 5 16GB in the US market. that is Rs. 35300. so a premium of 10K here in india is not that big of a deal.

i am sure if contracts were enforceable here in india, we would have similar pricing. but it just would not work because people would get phones in fake identities which are still pretty easy to accomplish.
