    I hope as I did last year that the new iPhone 5 will have a small indicator light that notifies you when a text or email is received. Like a BlackBerry.

    FINALLY!!!! Someone that agrees with me and wants one also! For months now there has been a running joke on these threads about me wanting a notification light!

    If they stick a front flash on it for the camera then I'm sure the notification light will be possible, that's IF

    I'm starting to think that the leaked iPhone 5 pictures are more likely to be leaked pictures of the latest Goophone (Although they claim to be the iPhone 5). I've been reading more and more about this and it certainly looks more plausible to me. Especially referring back to the alleged iPhone 5 booting up, you will notice the logos have been masked off, will the only reason I can think off is because it isnt an Apple handset but in actual fact a similar model to the below.

    This is just one of many articles talking about the Goophone.

    Chinese iPhone 5 copy may block patent on real thing - 07 Sep 2012 - Computing News

    So, I am still hopeful that we could all be surprised on Wednesday.

    Makes sense to me! It must be such an easy thing to do and surely there must be many who've suggested at Apple? Surely BlackBerry haven't got it patented?

    I think a lot of people actually agree with you but don't want to admit that this is something that should have been included when the first iPhone was made, or at least after 1 or 2 generations.
    As a little more of an aside some of the tech sites are suggesting Apple could release an iWatch.

    Personally I don't want a notification light. I think it would just look cheap and tacky.

    A cheap Chinese android phone who's maker patented the design "before Apple had chance"

    And apparently are threatening to sue. Even though their pone is based on leaked apple parts. They patented first.

    Though I doubt it will come to any of that (legal action)

    I think notification lights are great, they should have been added as standard a long time ago.

    I'm still in the 'unlikely to buy' camp at the moment. I got the 4S at launch and love it, but mum is due an upgrade now and I may use that to get the 5 so she can have the 4S. I'm not interested in the 5 if it has a larger screen though. My 4S fits perfectly in my trouser or jeans pockets and with a larger screen this would not be possible.

    There is an option in the OS to use the camera flash as a notification light

    Paired with wireless earphones sure but cannot see the practicality of being tiered to arm movements
    More capacity the better but any capacity increase will not be more than 128gb imo for cost reasons

    Here is an "Official" iPhone 5 video I stumbled onto twitter, www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MjrNKIVrQs&feature=youtu.be

    It doesn't have the YouTube app so the person who spent all this time faking it, remembered to use the latest iOS 6 beta, not a previous with the YouTube application.

    I honestly, totally, utterly wish they did add 32,64 and 128gb storage

    With all the Apps that are coming out with increased sizes, Apple please listen to people and add bigger storage

    Well with a notification light you'd need it. I'd go for nuclear power in that case actually.

    I would REALLY love it if they don't include a notification light. You response would be immense! ;-)
