Would You Know An iPhone 5 If You Saw One? These Folks Didn’t
If you’ve been keeping up with the iPhone 5 news, have been reading all the rumors for the past several months, and caught yesterday’s announcement, you’ve probably got a pretty strong sense of just what the handset is; really, we wouldn’t expect anything less from our readers. Not everyone’s so savvy when it comes to smartphones, though, as Jimmy Kimmel made painfully clear on his show last night.
In the video below, Kimmel’s crew hits the streets to get some opinions on the new iPhone. What the people they speak to don’t realize, though, is that they’re holding the old iPhone 4S.
Reactions to the same-old iPhone range from noting how light it now seems to how it feels slightly heavier than existing iPhones. Some people think the screen seems larger, and most everyone mentions how much faster it feels than previous models. Some just seem completely oblivious to the state of the current iPhone, impressed by the inclusion of both front and rear cameras. Even admitted iPhone 4S owners don’t seem to notice that they’re handling the very same phone.
Sure, that new screen (or lack thereof) would be an obvious giveaway if any of us found ourselves in the same situation, but that aside, do you think you might fall for the same trick, if only for a moment?
