The whole world is talking about the all new iphone 5. Apple sold more than 2 million iPhone 5 s in just 24 hours. What’s so great about the iPhone 5? Lets take a deeper dive into the feature of the iPhone 5.
The Design Of The iPhone 5
The design of iPhone 5 looks very similar to the iPhone 4s. But when we take a closer look, it is very much different from the iPhone 4s.
The iPhone 5 is incredibly thin and a lot lighter that the iPhone 4s. Apple has made no significant changes to the width of the phone but has increased the height. The aluminium back of the iPhone 5, makes it feel a lot better in the hands.
The thirty pin port has been replaced by a port that Apple calls the Lightning dock connector.Lightning dock connector is a very small port at the bottom of the iPhone and looks very similar to a micro USB port. There is also an adapter, that can convert the lightning dock connector to a 30 pin port. Apple has changed the position of the headphone jack to the bottom of the phone. This is a very good change. It is more convenient to have the headphone jack at the bottom.
The iPhone 5 has a 4″ retina display screen. The screen has a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels.
Its pixel density is the same as iPhone 4s (326 pixels per inch). This is probably the best display in the market. The color saturation in 44% more than the iPhone 4s offering its users a lifelike experience.
Storage And The New A6 Processor
Apple’s new processor, the A6 makes iPhone 5 twice as fast as the iPhone 4s which has an A5 processor. The A6 processor has a processing speed of 1.05 GHz. A6 is a dual core processor. iPhone 5 has 1 GB ram. As for most apple mobile products, the iPhone 5 comes in 16, 32 & 64 GB models. Like iPhone 4s the memory cannot be expanded in iPhone 5. You can always use i Cloud for more storage.
i Sight Camera
The iPhone 5 has a fantastic 8 megapixel back camera. The glass that used to be there on the outside for the protection of camera in iPhone 4s, has been replaced with a disc of crystal sapphire in the iPhone 5. Apple chose crystal sapphire for this because, it is more durable. The camera has an aperture of f/2.4.
Apple has made huge improvements to the front camera. The VGA FaceTime camera has been replaced with 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera that can record 720p high definition video.
LTE browsing is very power consuming but apple claims that iPhone can offer up to 8 hours of LTE browsing time. Apple has made the battery life of the iPhone 5 much better compared to iPhone 4s. iPhone 5 offers 8 hours of talk time and 10 hours of video playback time.
There is an unusually shaped pair of headphones that comes with the iPhone 5. Apple has named them ear pods. It is has got a weird shape. Most people are happy with the ear pods but many of them are not happy with the way it is designed. Some even say that it does not stay in their ears.
Though it has the ability to reproduce sound with great quality, the shape of the ear plugs are not very convincing.
I am sure your are not going to believe this. The iPhone 5 starts from $199 only (for 16 GB). As i told you before, iPhone 5 comes in three models, the 16 GB, 32 GB and the 64 GB. The 32 GB costs $299 and the 64 GB costs $399. This is the cheapest and the best iPhone. The low price is probably one of the reasons why Apple was able to sell 2 million iPhones in just 24 hours.
