Some more iPhone 5 features: A better rear camera sporting a sapphire lens cover and revamped image processing; a 1080p FaceTime camera; a smaller "lightning" dock connector; improved battery life and Wi-Fi performance; wideband audio playback; and 3 microphones to improve call quality (might be why ADNC was kicked out). Apple (AAPL +0.7%) is slightly higher. Suppliers are up moderately: OVTI +1.9%. CRUS +2.5%. BRCM +1.9%. SNDK +1.8%. (live blog) (more)

    Sounds like the build quality and tactile feel, as well as optics, are excellent, and functions are nice improvements and tweaks that go in line with the AAPL philosophy of "it just works better" and gets out of the way of what you want to do. Oh wait - it's still just a big black rectangle though! Sell sell sell!!.....

    Did anyone notice that you can "like" photos on the iphone 5, but it is not integrated with Facebook?

    The new iPhone looks great, but it seems that the iPhone's lead over other smartphones shrinks with every new model.

    I think the tactile experience is half the game. Once held and used, it feels and looks far superior. I don't think we can judge until it's test driven. Kind of like sitting in a Hyundai in a showroom, then sitting in a new BMW 5-series or an E-class Mercedes. You can just feel which one is the better model.
