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...

And with the same old iOS look... meh its so 2010 now..

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.
73. gallitoking (Posts: 4630; Member since: 17 May 2011)
new rumors same excuses from haters...you want the iphone to change why? you are not consumers...?.. ohh well lets run a check list of excuses again.. same look, size, etc...

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.
15. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
i am doing research on whether i will go with android, apple, or windows phone, so i am honestly curious to know
what can android do that ios with apps can't?
33. EarnYourLeather (Posts: 85; Member since: 14 Feb 2012)
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.
37. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
but what about everything that is happening with flash on android now?
will there be away around that?
41. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4579; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
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!
43. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
wait, i don't understand why my flash comment got thumbsdown'd
it doesn't matter, haha
i am just curious
it was a statement of fact
see this is why we need to get rid of the trolls
eveyrone just asumes everyone else is being confrontational
38. goos2134 (Posts: 19; Member since: 11 Dec 2011)
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.
40. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
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
51. tedkord (Posts: 3781; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Not every. I often send links to videos to my coworker, and he can't watch them on his iPhone4.
42. sithman (banned) (Posts: 299; Member since: 21 Apr 2012)
Other than widgets there's really nothing it can't do that android does. Some of the things u mentioned requires rooting.

53. Schuler2828 (Posts: 56; Member since: 04 Jul 2012)
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!!
66. pete8812 (Posts: 3; Member since: 04 Jul 2012)
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.
78. amish1512 (Posts: 28; Member since: 07 Jun 2012)
Thats true iphone doesnt support flash but there is the reason for that. Flash uses a processor a lot more and it can drain ur battery quicker. This is why android user use a spare battery

Totally agree with you "PhoneArenaUser" People are so dumb these days you want a phone that's perfect for you, so why do you get an iPhone that a 3 year old can operate?
60. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4579; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
People get what they want, but those videos shows that Android is really more advanced operating system than iOS. :)

iPhone user of 4 years decided to stay with Android after testing a phone for a month. Sums up a lot of the strengths of Android.
61. Baseballer (Posts: 126; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
Actually thats wrong. I got an iphone to make using a phone in school, easier. Thats the one benefit of the iphone. I used to have the moto backflip and the htc inspire 4g before. Kinda miss android now. Especially seeing the htc one x and sgs 3. But my point is not everyone goes for the iphone to look flashy or up to date.

Guys, please stop bashing apple article atleast for the time being, well until the iOS die hard fans starts trolling again.. Let's keep it civil. thanks.
6. andro. (Posts: 1926; Member since: 16 Sep 2011)
How long will it be before ifans wake up and see that incremental changes that apple introduce each year,yes the iphone 5 may have a bigger screen also the device will be slimmer but besides that it'll basically be an iphone 4 or iphone 4$ with ios 6 which is coincidentally also available on the former phones and is an update that barely brings any new features and those it actually does bring are generally old features in the general mobile world of things.
Looking at it in another context would you buy the exact same car each year if said car manufacturer only changed something like the head lamps styling or engine capacity or something similar just a small bit with each years model?
8. Mohtastic (Posts: 19; Member since: 24 May 2011)
Same car one year later, but with an extra arm rest
13. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
i don't think apple has said anything about the processor, the ram, or the gpu
so how do you know that it is going to be a 4s with a bigger screen?
what if the new dock port happens to be thunderbolt?
what android has even usb 3?
i'm not trying to flame here
i don't give a damn about apple, i'm still on the fence whether to get the iphone 5 or the gs3
but this is getting ridiculous
all the android people need to get over their small penis syndrom
16. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4579; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
So according to you he can't talk because we still don't know full iPhone 5 technical specifications, but you have right to insult other and talk about Android users penis and some kind of sindromes?
20. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
he wasn't just talking
along with the theme of this entire page where people are bashing the crap out of apple without any concrete details and he is saying that this phone is going to basically be a reskinned iphone 4s
i'm just pointing out we know nothing and everyone needs to chill out
the comparison to small penis syndrome is a pop culture reference often used to refer to people overcompensating in some way
you may have heard of it
64. andro. (Posts: 1926; Member since: 16 Sep 2011)
Its could be the first time ever that an iphone penis isn't stuck at 3.5 inch

i'm not an adroid person or an apple person
i'm a whatever seems like the best option to me person
i'm just tired of the ridiculous amount of android people trolling apple on this website
it is getting ridiculous
no other tech website i visit is anywhere near this bad
14. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4579; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
iPhone fans don't care about technical specifications, they just care about the brand name.
22. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
that doens't mean there won't be decent specs
and that is partially because apple doesn't care either
i know you will bash that phrase
but apple works to create an expereince
albeit one they can sell at a profit
but they aren't interested in including 2 gigs of ram just for bragging rights
they are only going to include what they need to to create the expreince they are going for at a price that will support their business model
and it is working ridiculously well
26. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4579; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
"that doens't mean there won't be decent specs"
With this part I agree, but that doesn't change my opinion and what I just have said about most iPhone fans in comment #14.
34. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
i don't disagree with you either
i just don't see the relation of your post to this article
or the significance of pointing that out
it is common knowledge
i bet most apple users would acknowledge that fact
but i don't think it describes the gadget interested ones that visit this site for the most part
but people like my cousin, who are the majority of apple's users
i bet if you asked her she would definitley say that is one of the reasons she likers her iphone
36. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4579; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)

57. Schuler2828 (Posts: 56; Member since: 04 Jul 2012)
So your saying that Apple is gonna price it the same as the highest end phone, with good enough specs for a good "expierience". Wow..
7. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 5472; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
Looks like Apple doesn't know what innovating is. still looks the same too me even if its a 4" while other phones have 5.8" or 4.3" screen
12. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
how is following the phablet trend innovating?
even if they had a screen somewhere around 5" your comment would be calling them out for just following
personally i kind of have smaller hands
i would rather die than have a massive device
i'm not even sure that 4" isn't too big
23. Immolate (Posts: 239; Member since: 17 Jun 2011)
You'd rather die? Seriously?
You should probably find another pass time. One without any sharp objects.
24. remtothemax (Posts: 201; Member since: 02 May 2012)
go big or go home or something like that, i suppose
49. appleDOESNT.com (Posts: 374; Member since: 19 Nov 2011)
this report states a 30% bigger screen. OG iP is 3.5" x 30% = 1.05" + 3.5" = 4.55" iPone 5... I know it aint so but isn't that what 30% larger than 3.5" is?
iPhone 5 has to cater to all people, young, girls etc, they can't make a big phone as it will turn off huge segments of their userbase and anything over 4" starts to get real big for small hands. That's what makes the 1Phone sooo limited, you can't please everyone with the 1Phone. Just not possible
iPredict 4" screen, it's the right size for a one size fits all situation
