It's finally here. The most awaited iPhone 5 has finally been announced with some great new features as well as a really great improvement in design. Unfortunately there was no new big software feature announced like Siri in the iPhone 4S but it seems like Apple have decided to concentrate on design this time. Below are the new features of the iPhone 5 reviewed and discussed as well as a couple of more pictures for this new product.
In terms of specifications the iPhone 5 is:
- 18 % thinner
- 20% lighter
- 12&% less volume
Then for the screen we get:
- 4 inches
- 326 ppi
- 1136 by 640 resolution
The network speed of the iPhone has dramatically improved. With 4G LTE and up to 150 mbps of download speed on wi-fi, the iPhone 5 has undergone great change.
An A6 chip is now available in the iPhone 5. This as usual leads to double the speed and double the graphics speed. We also get better battery life.
- 8 hours LTE browsing time
- 8 hours talk time
- 10 hours video playback time
The headsets in iPhone are now changing. After 3 years of work Apple have finally introduced new headsets. They have a cool futuristic design that fits into any ear. Apple said that they had the problem of designing an ear phone that can fit any ear, it is like making one sized shoe for everyone. So this is what they introduced...
For audio I will include mic as well. The iPhone 5 has 3 microphones. There are two at the front and back but near the bottom which is the audio that will be used, but the third mic will be at the top. And this mic will mute what it hears so that only your voice is being transmitted. So in other words the top mic cancels sounds that are input to improve audio quality.
Finally Apple brings in panorama into iPhone 5. As you know there was a previous hidden version of panorama hidden in iOS 5. But this one has really improved. Have a look at the photo below. The feature is built-in into the camera app and works similar to most popular panoramic cameras.
We also get full screen video camera with the iPhone 5 as well as the ability to take pictures during the video. The front facing camera is now a 720P HD. So enjoy better facetime! There is also 40% faster photo capture than the iPhone 4S.
So I don't think I should ask if you will buy the iPhone 5 or not, I would rather ask will you get black or white!? I'm probably going for black.
