Even I, who am an avid Android user, was part of the collective moan of disappointment when Apple announced not the iPhone 5, but the iPhone 3GS' bigger brother: the iPhone 4S.

Mat Honan probably explains it best in this article on Gizmodo as to why he is far from impressed:

I was hoping for something bold and interesting looking. The iPhone 4 was just that when it shipped. So too were the original iPhone and the iPhone 3G. If I'm going to buy a new phone, of course I want it to look new. Because of course we care about having novel designs. If we didn't we'd all be lugging around some 10-inch thick brick with a 12 day battery life.
