iPhone 5 Features and Specs

Millions of users worldwide enjoy the sixth-generation phone and want to buy iPhone 5 by Apple. This handset is the thinnest, fastest and lightest among all previous iOS smartphone models. Let’s take a look at this iPhone 5 full review to learn more about its design, features, specs and other options.

The sixth-gen model is the most anticipated iOS smartphone release after the iPhone 4 launch, as the 4S unit had only minimum changes while the iPhone 5 was redesigned and renewed with new options. Now wonder this gadget has had 2 million preorders in the first 24 hours. This record states that you truly have to consider to buy iPhone 5 after our full review, especially if you haven’t got this handset yet.

iPhone 5 Design

The first thing that differentiates the sixth-generation handset from the previous iOS smartphones is iPhone 5 design. This 7.6mm-deep gadget weighs 112g and this is 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4S and 14-16 percent less than HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3 devices. Apple has made it possible to reduce its smartphone’s thickness thanks to a nano SIM size and the shell’s material [anodised aluminium].

Even though the latest Apple handset is 7.6mm thin and it is comfortable to hold in one hand, it’s still not the world’s thinnest device. ZTE Athena, Oppo Finder and Huawei Ascend P1 S are thinner, as they are 7mm-deep.

The device size is 123.8mm [height] by 58.6mm [width]. Its rear is covered with glass at the top and bottom, and such a decision creates an uninterrupted phone signal. We will not describe the position and design of all the buttons as you can simply take a look at the iPhone 5 and see everything yourself.

iPhone 5 Features

Our iPhone 5 full review surely covers the device’s features. The big 4-inch display is probably of the most significant features as from now on it has become even more comfortable to look through photos, web pages and movies. Still a lot of applications cannot flip your screen 180-degrees so you might have to just get used to this fact.

The smartphone comes with iOS 6, new Apple firmware that introduces a lot of new features to iPhone 5 users. For example, you might enjoy Panorama mode, Siri, Passbook app, Shared Photo Streams, better iCloud integration, improved Safari browser and other things. Some users might even like Apple Maps app though it has been widely criticized with more and more people wishing to see Google Maps back. Since this is iPhone 5 full review, we will not devote our article to iOS 6 features and continue talking about the device itself.

iPhone 5 Specs

Apple launched its iPhone 5 with an A6 processor [dual-core 1.05GHz] which makes the sixth-gen smartphone “twice as fast” as iPhone 4S, according to the Cupertino company, though the 4S model has an 800MHz processor. Besides, the chip reduces the device’s size by 22 percent and offers 1GB of RAM. The sixth-gen smartphone is offered with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB just like previous iOS devices.

LTE is probably the most awaited spec, still the device is offered in two models: GSM and CDMA – and these are the only options for voice calling because LTE cannot handle voice and data simultaneously [only GSM can].

The gadget comes with expanded Wi-Fi options, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, better sound quality, the smaller Lightning connector [no more Dock connector], longer battery life and other things that make users respect this iOS device.

Other Facts

If you wish to use your older iPhone accessories with the sixth-gen model, you will need a $30 adapter because your Lightning connector [it is not too fast as it is based on USB 2.0] is incompatible with over 350 million billion accessories created for earlier iPhone models and iPods. Car drivers might be sad to hear that this adapter will not support iPod Out feature.

The iSight and FaceTime cameras are similar to the iPhone 4S, yet the iPhone 5 camera purple issue faced by a lot of users from all over the world bothers them a lot. Still new pictures do get a better color reproduction, resolution and overall quality when taken from the right position.

So which features do you love about the iPhone 5? Feel free to add your impressions to our iPhone 5 full review as there are always new things to discuss about this gadget.
