This iPhone 5 review tells you all about the iPhone 5: new features, performance and improvements over the iPhone 4S.
In this post, you read iPhone 5 review everything about the larger 4-inch screen, the faster A6 processor and the new Maps application. Of course you get into this iPhone 5 test an honest answer to the question: should you switch to the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S with iOS 6 still good enough?
Introduction: revolutionary or boring?
If you have the iPhone 5 for the first time in your hands is not the bigger screen that is most striking. The light weight and extremely thin iphone 5 cases in the UK made the biggest impression on us, and delivered the wow-effect we had hoped. The iPhone 5 is 20 percent lighter and 18 percent thinner than the iPhone 4S and it shows clearly.
Wherever we were impressed is that technically a tremendous job for Apple must have been to all parts in such huge compact housing to accommodate. Once you get the iPhone 5 in your hands you would almost think they have the battery or another crucial part forgotten. Apple itself emphasizes that there is a completely redesigned product: “If the technology did not exist, we found it out. If a component is not small enough, we came again,” it says on the product pages.
Apple has an obsession with the increasing miniaturization of devices and can be overly enthusiastic when another millimeter of a particular component is shaved. In a promo video from Apple (from 4:55 minutes) shows how far this obsession goes to the production of a new device: a container with 725 identical parts grabs a robot exactly the part of the micrometer is best suited to the previously selected features.
However, the iPhone 5 is not warmly received by everyone. Users that the iPhone 5 is not in our hands had reacted disappointed that the unit in appearance very much like a stretched iPhone 4S looks. We expect revolutionary innovations from Apple, but at the same time we are afraid of radical changes because it deters users.
Apple’s conservative choice to continually refine and improve turns out well: with each new iPhone users complain that although not innovative enough, yet there are more pieces of every iPhone sold. Apple does not use an iPhone with retractable screen and a global payment system is useful, we did actually. But daydreaming can hear at Apple now have at once.
It is doubtful whether the average user prefer that Apple had seen a dramatically different design was chosen. In fact, it often only two things: it all works faster better and others can see that I have the latest iPhone? On both points, Apple has met expectations. The iPhone 5 is on all fronts better and faster than its predecessor and the aluminum back, you can immediately see that with an iPhone 5 to have. Who just judge based on pictures, makes himself short: go to the Apple Store in Amsterdam or any other store where the iPhone 5 is displayed along and try it yourself.
At the same time it is understandable that many people buy the iPhone 5 but a small step to find. With the first generation iPhone, Apple revolutionized, because no smartphone was so awful lot of convenience offered. Apple set the standard how a home screen should look like and how to download apps.
Apple made sure we went massively mobile Internet use. Other manufacturers followed with variations on choices that Apple had already made, making it increasingly difficult to surprise. Everything you can imagine, has ever attempted by Samsung, HTC and LG’s of this world. Apple tries to look at subtle improvements and maybe that’s a good thing.
Major new projects such as Apple Maps – many who rightly criticized – make clear that refine and improve incrementally perhaps a better strategy than the helm just trying to throw.
