Aaron unboxes the Apple iPhone 5 and gives some first impressions.  After years of hearing about it, the device is finally here, and with it comes an Apple A6 dual-core CPU (clocked at 1 GHz), a 4-inch Retina Display (with 326 ppi), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, 4G LTE connectivity, and iOS 6 with Passbook.  It's available today on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless in the United States.  Does it put Apple back on top in the smartphone wars?

Nathaniel McCord Going to get the iPhone but its going straight to my collection of cell phones not planning to ever use the damn thing.
Cristian Salinas Murillo Apple sucks! ...iphone 5 losers jajaja...
Tiger Panomthonichakul ios sick ...6, sorry,
Aries Bautista A futuristic remote....
Garry Magat I went to bestbuy mobile , held the iPhone on my hand , and its feel awkward, because its to long for its width.
Garry Magat Stable OS? Freeze up on unboxing, cause? Apple used two 516mb chips -1 gb RAM
Chris Stec U should box it back up and throw it in a fire pit peace out!
Shannon Mellard great video! thanks
David Kaylor DO NOT CARE
Tyran Bamn Gray Seems like apple hates its consumers... Give them just enough to hold an argument that they will eventually lose.. there's the GS3 the Note and the Note 2! the i5 has no place in that genre of super phones. Its just an elongated iPhone 4, no real thought went into this phone and it shows. I guess its all about the brand right?
Zach Cline Angel the S3 is 4.8 inches, Not 4.7. Fail
Mark Belkowski galaxy s 3 all the way folks.
Arturo Atherly BLAH BLAH BLAH.....
Angel Hernandez "New" iphone: half inch bigger screen.. same ol' " retina" display.. 4g lte.. MY S3: 4.7 inch screen,720p HD resolution, 4g lte. S3> Iphone. Theres no argument there folks..
Mark Belkowski first unboxing im not interested in.
Jeremy Bleich Please Vince, spare yourself the time of typing. I don't argue with retards.
Jeremy Bleich Yeah I know about that Anthony, they were leaked from an FBI agents laptop computer.
Anthony Bailey Jeremy: you don't have to worry about NFC and identity theft. Apple does a good enough job of that on their own. Did you nor hear about the recent Apple headline-making scandal involving Apple IDs which affected over a million Apple users??
Anthony Bailey Could you even tell you were unboxing a "new" iPhone or did it look like another 4S at first glance?
Vince Garcia please i will steal your identity through facebook if i wanted to..bum
Jeremy Bleich And I'd prefer iOS not to use NFC, ever. Have fun getting your identity stolen.
Jeremy Bleich People lined up for miles to buy the same thing they already have in their pocket today. I love my 4s but people are pathetic.
Jeff Cross Cut the tape, reboot the phone, roll tape!

Rohit Pol Not that much difference between 4s n 5...

Archduke Gonzalo Uriona wow. what will you ever do with a 1second faster loading time and a 0.5 in bigger screen, prolly things the iphone 4s could have never done (sarcasm) -.-
