    I’m @glrhn, and I want that iPhone 5 because I want to give it to my wife for her birthday, even though her birthday is a few weeks ahead. That retina screen on iPhone 5 interests me. And, I have a son, a very cute and handsome son (you can check my recent images on twitter) to test how good that retina screen is.

  • Lendra Bayu

    Hey I’m @pemirsa and my ex girlfriend was a dentist. So i need this apple product to keeps her away.

    Get it? No? I just made a joke about “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” hehehe.

    But, not good huh?

    How bout this:

    My boss bought this iPhone 5 in Sydney but don’t understand half of the features and has been using it as a feature phone: making calls, textings, and listen to Rihanna’s songs. Do you understand my feeling?
    So please please please give me this gorgeous phone to prevent a murder act in my office

    Hi i’m @robert_at and i want the apple iphone5 so i can throw away my android htc evo 4g lte :))

  • Lex dePraxis

    I’m @lexdepraxis, and iPhone 5 definitely wants me because such hitech out-of-this-world badassery gadget can only be handled and appreciated properly by a real mind-fuck genious bad ass such as myself.. it’s that simple, really.

    God bless you.

  • Joshua Kevin

    Hi I’m @jshkvn and I want iPhone 5 so I can read Tech in Asia everyday and anywhere through the best screen ever.

    (I know I won’t win it because I used to work for you guys :p)

  • Rully Stevan

    This is @ruu_stevan calling for emergency. HELP! My mom is killing me, she said “get married by the end of this year, or I’ll pick one for you..” Oh, did I mention my mom had a lousy taste? Give me the iPhone, I’ll introduce this sexy beast as my wife! I mean seriously..

    Ssshhh.. don’t tell my mom!

  • Handoko Tjung

    Hi I’m @handokotjung , and I want that iPhone 5 as an early christmas present, I’ve never got one from santa in the past 26 year. I think I’ve always been in the naughty list.

    I’ll get my own christmas present!


    That being said, that retina display is pretty slick. Gimme gimme gimme.

  • Nadia

    I need an iPhone 5 to fulfil my New Year resolution: to be the total hipster-est hipster of all hipsters. and what’s a hipster without iPhone 5.


  • Farry Aprianto

    I’m @farry & always in pursuit of happiness. I will find happiness if I win, because iPhone 5 represents happiness as a product. #iPhone5TIA

  • Mikael

    I’m @MikaelHS and I want iPhone 5 because I’m a complete douchebag to my girlfriend. She just got a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 from one of the biggest Lazada’s online shop competitor and has been so smug about it in my face.

    Just in the spirit of douchery, I’m set to prove that she’s wrong.

    I offer to forge an alliance between us. I, iPhone 5 and Lazada, together we would out-smug her and her measly, fragile, plastic Android easily. In fact, we would out-smug any other combination.

    This is an offer you cannot refuse.

  • Andi Annas

    I’m @AndiAnnaz and I’ve been a hardcore fan of Android all these time. I need an iPhone5 to prove myself that Apple did make a revolutionary innovation product since iPod! Prove me wrong, please!

  • Katarina Novi Candra

    I’m @katavican @mikaelhs’s girlfriend..Few months ago, i bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 from Lazada and it feels damn good to have this kind of smartphone. Dear Lazada.. please give me one more phone, this iPhone. Or at least give it to my boyfriend @mikaelhs because he deserve it. =D

  • Erwin Tanudjojo

  • Lex dePraxis

    I’m @lexdepraxis, the procreator of @mikaelhs and @katavican’s relationship. Yes, I agree to every single thing they said. In a perfect world where all people get what they want, I do solemnly and wholeheartedly believe they should get the iPhone 5..

    Sadly, this world is not perfect.
