Apple have once again launched a new generation of their iphone. We have watched the apple iphone grow from the first generation to the 5th. The first iphone was originally launched in 2007 and of course the fifth was released in late September 2012. With a 5 year gap apple has had the ability to advance improve and enhance specs and features. Many people claim that the iphone 5 just isnât up to par, but I beg to differ. Although it may not look like much has happened in way of appearance, this phone is certainly one to have a look at. Iâm going to let you in on some of the specs this phone contains!
The iphone 5 appears to look like the exact replica of the 4S, if you thought this then you would be very wrong. The new handset looks impeccable it is thinner and lighter than the iphone 4S. An iphone 5 is 18% thinner than its precedent. The screen width is also 4 inches wide unlike the iphone 4S which is only 2.3 inches. You can also buy one of these phones in either black and slate or white and silver. The thinner appearance makes this device look a lot sleeker and stylish.
There are a number of features which this phone has that the iphone 4S does not. Here are some of the improved functions which you may not already be aware of.
â Retina display- Now you have the ability to see everything more clearly with this sharp 4 inch retina display. Colours get a boost too as the saturation is 44% greater than before.
â Wider display- Having a wider display means you can see and do more. You have the ability to write out longer messages and you can play around with all the cool apps.
â Super speed wireless- As iphone 5 supports all networks around the globe you can pick up a wifi signal from pretty much anywhere you are. Whether you are down the pub with your friends or sat on a nice sunny beach somewhere (lucky you!) you will for sure be in range of a wifi signal.
â Improved speed- The iphone comes with a built in A6 chip. Basically this means that the speed of the phone is twice as fast as before. When you launch a webpage the content on the page should load instantly. This is the same for apps, you will no longer have to wait for any app to load. The A6 chip also allows your phone to last throughout the day. You can easily use your mobile for up to 8 hours without it running out. This is especially good if you are always on the go and have no time to reach a plug socket!
â Enhanced audio- The all new ear pods allow you to experience an entirely new thing with your music. These earphones unlike any others have 3 microphones designed to give you an all round music party! Trying to play your music but background sound ruining it for you? Well, these beauties have the ability to block out any background noise making putting on your headphones and chilling out, that extra bit enjoyable.
â Better camera- An iphone 5 comes with an isight camera. This all new camera offers a variety of great features. With one smooth motion you have the ability to shoot a whole 240 degrees of image. This means you donât have to ask people to squeeze together if you are trying to take a photo of a larger group. The 1080p HD video also allows you to capture those amazing memories in quality.
â Apps- Although you can download pretty much the same kind of apps as before, you now have the ability to enjoy them a whole lot more. With the retina display and the HD quality you can play a range of great games. The efficiency of the phone means you can play on games for hours without the battery running flat. Apps are now a lot more enjoyable!
