Apple iPhone 5 is definitely lighter, thinner and faster than its predecessors. You will love its 4g capability, bigger screen and that better front-facing camera. This was perhaps the most anticipated Apple handset ever since the launch of iPhone 4. There were already temptations in the market for users, keeping them away from the pull of iOS with the superior Windows Phone interface or the Sony Xperia T. But statistics don’t lie and there were two million pre-orders with Apple within 24 hours.
Go through a brief Apple iPhone 5 review here:
There are hardly any visible changes in iPhone 5 that differentiate it from its two predecessors. The first thing that you will not about is its weight as this is the lightest iPhone ever. The shell is made out of anodised aluminum and those glass strips adorning the top and bottom of the phone lend it a premium feel. But the 7.6mm-deep iPhone isn’t the thinnest in the market. But buyers love the lightweight design and wonder how Apple managed to pack all those goodies in the small design. The 4 inch screen is Apple’s overdue nod to the trend for bigger displays. It boasts of a resolution of 1136×640 and 326ppi, displaying bright and rich colors. The headphone socket is placed to the bottom of the device. However, the jutting jack might interfere with your hand when holding it up. There is a boost for the stereo speakers.
An improved A6 processor now powers the visuals. App developers are taking advantage of the upgraded processor and screen.
The new Lightening connector is smaller and reversible. Movies are wider and web pages are longer and the photo viewing area is bigger as well. Apps load quicker and videos run a lot smoother. The impressive rear iSight camera can take great pictures and there is marked improvement in the video stabilization. The auto-focus and face detection feature lets you capture stills. The front camera has been upgraded to 720p video and the new Panorama mode produces great results. Apple Maps display more road names as compared to the names of places. Flyover, map rotation and 3D mapping features are all great. Wireless spec improvements make the experience a lot better with a consistent signal. 4G LTE network in iPhone 5 offer e times faster speeds than those on 3G. However, there is not much change in the battery life. The new EarPods are a welcome improvement and offer a much better audio experience.
There’s no denying that iPhone 5 is the best selling unit from apple till date. But a lot has changed in a year and technology is moving ahead with lightening pace. It is very good but not exactly the very best.
