After the massive success of the iPhone 3 and 4, the iPhone 5 is a major step up in quality. Not that there was (or is) anything wrong with the earlier models of course. It’s just that the iPhone 5 is an eye opener after the gentle evolution path that Apple have taken previously.
Apple reach new heights with every device they make, and the iPhone 5 confirms that.
Apple have managed to squeeze all the goodness of the iPhone 5 into just 3.95oz. This is despite smartphones routinely weigh in at well over 5 ounces, which still isn’t what you’d call heavy. If you want a smartphone that doesn’t feel like you’re carrying a paperback around, this is it. 123.8mm x 58.6mm x 7.6mm doesn’t make it a particularly small device, though. In fact it’s actually slightly larger than it’s predecessor, but it’s still 20% lighter. Apple have, by anybody’s standards, pulled off a remarkable design feat.
The fabulous 4” Retina screen has a display far superior than the 1136 x 640 resolution might have you believe, and is as sharp as any in its class. It’s also bright and has great colours, and is a joy to use, especially for gaming and videos. Apple have all but made eye-strain a thing of the past, and have done so in style.
Corning Gorilla Glass covers the screen which will help protect from everyday knocks and scratches. The glass also has an oleophobic coating which repels fingerprints very effectively. You will still need to give it the odd polish, but not like you’ve been used to.
The display on any smartphone is what everyone sees first, and on which all demos are performed. If a manufacturer gets this wrong, it seriously affects sales and reputation. Thankfully, it’s not something Apple make a habit of, and it’s one less thing to worry about.
The 8MP rear camera is Apple’s best yet, with geo-tagging, face detection, HDR and Panorama. It also records video at a stunning 1080p Full HD resolution. The accurate autofocus and LED Flash mean great photos and videos in any situation. Awful pictures in dark rooms have been consigned to history at long last.
Apple have put their efforts into quality instead of quantity with the front camera. They have made it a very selfie friendly 1.2MP and have optimized it for use with FaceTime, Apple’s own video chat software. The front camera can also record 720p HD video and also has face detection built in.
Apple have never been a company chasing pixel counts, instead preferring to put their efforts into making cameras better instead of just “bigger. Just as the rear camera outperforms its own specification, the rear camera of the iPhone 5, in particular, is fantastic. It is a clear example of quality over quantity that will never leave you disappointed.
Unlocked for use on any GSM network, the iPhone 5 will work in over 160 countries. If you’re travelling outside the EU, then it may well be cheaper to buy a local sim card for your data needs. All our smartphones are unlocked so all you need to do is take your UK sim card out and pop in your new one.
4G compatibility means the fastest possible data transfer rates, wherever you might be but. But, just in case you’re in a 4G-free area, 3G fallback is there to carry you through. There’s dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with built in hotspot for sharing your connection with other devices. Bluetooth 4.0 means easy device connections, and A-GPS with GLONASS provides super-accurate positioning. Navigation or any app that uses location services will thank you for it.
Keeping all this pumping long like a train is a 1440 mAh battery which gives up to 8hrs talk time, 9 days of standby or 40hrs of music playback.
The iPhone 5 is the phone that makes the others in its class sit up and take notice. Apple are innovators, that’s no surprise. The satisfying knowledge that they manage to do it without ever leaving the user dissatisfied is incredible.
