JohnZimmerman, 30 Sep 2012Apple is staying competetive with rivals when it comes to smartphone hardware, particularly wh... moreSome good points. However comparing Apple to Android phones these days is problematic since Apple have decided to go thinner and lighter when everyone else has decided to go bigger and heavier to accommodate all the tech that iPhone users don't get. If you compare an S3 to an i5, the S3 is like a top-flight Corvette and the i5 is like an NSX Type-R. The Corvette would blitz it in a straight line, the NSX would kill it in manoeuvrability. Unfortunately the NSX, for all its brilliance, never took the same evolutionary path as other cars in its class, so like the iPhone it just doesn't offer the same things others do.
....1,440 mAh non-replaceable Lithium Polymer battery ?
( gn II has got 3,100 mAh users replaceable Lithium Ion battery)
what a great dump to all ip5 admirers.
i bought one on monday and sold it by wednesday! Its terrible feels cheap and games have black boarders because they dont fit the stupid skinny screen, so a bought a one x witch is better in every way!
iSJ5, 01 Oct 2012smaller screen can also help to save more battery life!Of course battery will be less consume.
....but you will find some difficulty in faster text typing on iphone 5, while other enjoying freedom of fingers movement on gn II.
iSJ5, 01 Oct 2012smaller screen can also help to save more battery life!....but u need small pointed fingers for frequent text typing on very small screen like iphone 5.
Ip5 killed sgs3and one x . it is fastest phone ever .A6 chip with sgx gpu is even better than s4 pro chips that will feature in upcoming android phones.
apple imaps icon is really extraordinary and very revolutionary ,i have never seen something like that before.
why they always posting what are the disadvatages of this device? while the truth is no device is perfect! try also look what are the advantage of this device than post it! btw if you are looking on perfect gadgets well wait in future maybe. but for now - in you dreams!
Have been an iPhone user for years but total disappointment with iPhone 5 especially iOS 6.
crApple iOS shite
Main disadvantages of iPhon 5.
Aluminum body looks cool but is easy to scratch
Proprietary connector, incompatible with previous-gen accessories (needs adapter)
The new display is not proportionally bigger, but only taller
Unadapted apps run letterboxed due to the unusual resolution
nano-SIM support only
Apple Maps app not up to scratch
No USB Mass Storage mode
No FM radio
No stereo speakers
No microSD card slot
No NFC connectivity (though that may be nitpicking)
Stuck with iTunes for loading content
Mono audio recording in videos
The Next Web: iPhone review
Conclusion for the article:
The iPhone 5 is the most capable and carefully designed smartphone ever. There is no other on the market that combines the best screen in the world with a completely custom processor and a wafer thin chassis to produce an LTE-fast device with industry standard or better battery life.
The only way that the iPhone 5 could be unimpressive is if you’re the kind of person that thinks that the more aftermarket fiberglass fins that a car has, the faster it will go.
This device is a tour de-force performance of a company firing on all cylinders. The internal components work together in concert to deliver one of the most pleasant and powerful experiences of any ever produced. If you’re reading these sentences and rolling your eyes, then you probably have an allergy to hyperbole, and I understand because I do too. But this isn’t hyperbole, it isn’t exaggeration.
After calling it's maps as the most beautiful and powerful EVER, Apple now adds new section for alternative mapping software in the App Store. How pathetic!
