Alleged front panel of the iPhone 5 leaks again, 30% larger screen with in-cell touch layer to be used

0. phoneArena 04 Jul 2012, 08:00 posted on

It integrates the touch sensors directly into the LCD package, thinning it in the process, and allowing for a slimmer device. Given that those sources confirm once again what we've heard numerous times - that the iPhone 5 screen will be with 30% larger area than the 3.5-incher we have now, a thinner display part would still allow for a very compact device...

You must be stupid if you think that the One X and One S or the S2 or Razr Maxx can hold a flame to iPhone 4S.

The Camry and Civic are the best selling cars in America, does that mean they are the best cars out there? No. The iPhone is nothing but a great selling middle of the pack device. Android has Vipers and Corvettes while the iPhone is a Camry... Small screen, simplistic UI, minimal options. The iPhone is the smartphone for the computer illiterate. It's not the best phone out there, it's just the king of sales numbers...

The design of the iPhone is almost 2 years old now. Nothing has changed aesthetically since the iPhone 4 was released. With what has leaked about the iPhone 5, it is going to be another take on stale technology.

Ever since the 4s was announced, there has been a huge divide in the tech world, people who know what a smarphone can do, (android) and people who want to appear techy and up to date (iphone) a child can own an iphone, what does that say? ios 6 was underwelaming and so will iphone 5, but as we all know, apple will hype the hell out of their device, calling it revolutuinary again and again and again, we get it, but we know better, aka android, im just waiting for asus padfone to arrive in australia, and when october comes around and people are drooling over iphone 5 and have no idea why they need one, ill be watching from the sidelines with my real smartphone, android.

Virtually anything that requires flash support since iPhones don't have it- try watching a music video on the actual YouTube site. You can't do it with an iPhone, you have to download an app which will render the video in a different format for you.


More music support- apple only supports mp3, mp4, wav, aiff, and alac. With a DROID you can play all of those and more with the right setup.

Music is also easier to store and share- you don't have to use iTunes or worry about losing your data through syncing to transfer media files between computers. It's a simple drag and.drop.

Not to mention widgets- the home screens are infinitely more customisable and interesting than a grid of square tiles.

While there was no HTML5 Android was with Flash while iOS never had Flash. Now there is HTML5 and Android is losing Flash. iOS didn't had Flash when it was really in need while Android was with Flash!

I own neithier an android or iphone. but the falsh argument is played out. once jelly bean hits you wont have access to flash eithier. Not to mention that due to popularity of the iphone every falsh site makes an iphone compatibale version. so that limitation is not a big deal.

Ipods are iopds for a reason so the music thig is kinda weird to me ?

As a grid of square titles ? they do both icons and widgets jobs, are way more asthticly pleasing and cleaner. oh the biggest one they dont lag freeze crash or force close. theres a reason why people always wanna change android ,...... its ugly and clunky very poorly designed.

i don't think it is fair to say that it is ugly and clunky and poorly designed
i think widgets are a brilliant idea
you know, like being able to turn bluetooth, wifi, and airplane mode on and off without having to dig through menus
i've always wanted a weather widget on my ipod, it would be so handy
and the new ics and jb updates make the operating system look fairly slick, i think
i have been rather impressed
and ipods can't do all formats, i am pretty sure

Not every. I often send links to videos to my coworker, and he can't watch them on his iPhone4.

Other than widgets there's really nothing it can't do that android does. Some of the things u mentioned requires rooting.

You people are unbelievable, we pick Android because it can do 10 times what we can do with Apple. With an iPhone you can't do s**t to customize it. You Apple fan boys are retarded the only reason you like it is cause all of your friends have it. You think it's a luxury item, Your paying for the name!! For whoever said it force closes all the time well your wrong Google "Do iOS apps crash more than Android apps?" Then you'll see how stupid you look, Android is better!! Thumbs up if you agree, I swear it's like talking to children these days learn your damn facts, I did!!

You guys act like android can do all these great things over the iPhone but in realitly the only things it can do is pointless or not even necessary. I think the smarter people are the ones that realize having your home screen background move is a stupid idea.lol.

You can watch you tube videos from safari web browser or any other browser itself.

Also sync does not leeds to loss of data instead it backs it up everytime, yes it has a limitation that you can sync with only 1 PC.
