    I like the iPhone 5 commercials, but to me the iPhone 5 never looks like an iPhone 5 in the commercial. In person the phone looks long and narrow, but in the commercials it looks more like the 4/4s form factor...is it just me??

    Funny, I've felt the same way watching their commercials. The changes don't seem to translate in the ads.

    Probably because there isn't enough of a change to see the difference. When I'm at the mall I sometimes play "spot the iPhone 5" and I can't do it. The styling cues between the 4/4S and 5 are too similar.

    nah, if it's black bezeled, it's the slate and grey (or whatever they called it) version of iPhone 5. If it's whitish-silverish bezeled, its the white iPhone 5.
    The iPhone 4/S has a duller bezel compared to the iPhone 5. The iPhone 4 only has 1 antenna 'gap' at the bottom, while the 4S has two.

    But if someone puts a case over their iPhone 4/S, I really can't differentiate.

    I agree I can spot an iPhone 5 a mile away, yet when I watch the commercials I'm a little confused...

    Plus the commercials insult the consumer in the know, telling us about features the iPhone 5 has like its new, yet phones have had that tech for years......panoramic shot and noise cancellation as a few examples
