Seems like the claimed thinnest phone of the world couldn’t really blow the mind away of majority of people. Here’s why, right after the jump.

3 Reasons Why People Didn’t Like Apple iPhone 5

# Too hyped to have a same design:

Majority of people who didn’t like the Apple iPhone 5 , didn’t like it because of its same bar shaped design, with just an increment of length added to it. Well, that’s right! The Apple iPhone 5 is the most hyped smartphone of 2012, and a lot of expectations could be seen when it comes to the design of the device. With the prototypes showing extremely advanced technology, Apple still chose it’s good old bar-shaped design for its iPhone 5. The two-toned backplate didn’t really impress them much.

# No out-of-the-box feature/functionality:

Remember the time when Apple iPhone 4S was unveiled in October ‘2011. Well, it didn’t really had much difference in terms of design and looks when compared with Apple iPhone 4S, however it had some of the best features like the good old Siri, to ask from a smartphone. Unfortunately, Apple’s iPhone 5 specifically does not have a single out-of-the-box functionality or feature to die for. Everything different comes with the iOS 6 which will be also available for the iOS 6, so why to go for iPhone 5 when you get it on iPhone 4S? Your take!

# Different Accessories

About 20% of the people who didn’t like the iPhone 5 preferred to use the old accessories. Earpods however have been seen as an item of interest by people.
