Fans pack Apple stores for iPhone 5

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

For die-hard Apple fans, few things were as important Friday as getting their hands on the iPhone 5.

"They're great products," said Tony Pomales, who was buying one for his wife.

For many, waiting in line for Apple's latest gadget has become tradition...but why? There are plenty of other top-tier electronics out there.

Justin Saturley, operations manager for the iHospital, which services all things Apple, describes a passion for the product.

"When you get your hands on one of those devices, you realize how much attention to detail they put in there," he said.

Some have described users' devotion to Apple as "cult-like," while others simply believe their products are superior.

"It is just clean and crisp. It makes it so easy to find what you're looking for. It's simple," Peter Jones said.

The new iPhone has received high marks so far, though some critics have complained about the new plug and the new maps feature. But at the end of the day, it is Apple's latest and greatest, and to some of the company's loyal fans that's what really matters.

"It is kind of like having a Harley, you can buy a Honda that looks like a Harley, or buy a Harley and have the real thing," Brad Davis described.
