The 6th-generation iPhone has gotten some mixed responses. Some really like it, and some think it’s okay. Others don’t even notice the difference! The Jimmy Kimmel US TV chat show went on the street’s to see what the reaction of the average passerby was.
What they did was that they showed a passerby an iPhone 4S claiming that it was the new iPhone 5. This was done more for humor rather than something serious. However, there were a number of people who thought what they were seeing was the new iPhone 5.
Some of the people who were questioned seemed to be not that into technology and gadgets. Surprisingly, one of the people who came in the spotlight was an iPhone 4S user and he himself said that the device he was shown seemed lighter to him. Seems like he came under the placebo effect!
It was fun to see iPhone fans react like that. However, this does raise a question that do people react to the hype and upgrade just because it’s something new, or do they really look at what more they are getting from the upgrade?
Most of the core functionality of the iPhone 5 is the same as the iPhone 4S. However, it has a lot more to discover. Would you buy the new iPhone 5? Feel free to comment!
