iPhone 5: review of specifications

0. phoneArena 12 Sep 2012, 17:18 posted on

So, it's finally here, the new iPhone! Sorry, we meant the iPhone 5! You've ready all our news about the handset (probably a rather time-consuming thing to do), you already know that Apple has not only improved the design of its handset, but also the hardware found under the hood...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Thinness isn't everything, ergonomics should be priority!

The only advice I can accept :) thanks...
I confess that it's not worth to upgrade :)

There's really such a thing as too thin, I've said the same about the Droid Razr. Also, I'd gladly have a phone that's thicker by 1 - 3 mm if that meant getting a bigger battery to power all that goodness.

@ Wendy, Really? The Droid Razor (released in 2011) is 7.1 mm. & there have been several Androids since, (Not 2 mention upcoming releases) that are thinner than the Razor. A mind is a terrible thing 2 waste (on Apples BS ;-)

c'mon Wendy I'm sure you're also disappointed with the iphone 5, you're just making some excuse. You also put your self in shame, yeah iphone 5 is slim but still some android phones slimmer than iphone 5.

just for a laugh try to visit this site... http://www.quickmeme.com/meme/3qvpxm/

I think Wendy is either ridiculing and trying to toy with us with sarcasm or he/she is very bipolar. Nice try though.

And the mis informed specs hype begins...lol.

My RAZR would like a word with you. Ms Wendy.... while we're at it:

Panorama camera feature....came with the Droid X1....in 2010. And was available on camera apps since 2010. Maybe earlier.

Bigger screen.....yea....wont even go there.

LTE....see above...

3 mics....Droid X1....2010.

Did Tim Cook actually say...:“This is unlike anything we or anyone else in our industry has made before,“ I hope he didnt.....cuz that will get ate alive by the better informed ppl in the smartphone world.

Anyone else agree that having glass on top by the camera is fugly? I think they really needed to make the screen a little wider (portrait) and have the home button be capacitive. This was a pretty bad upgrade if you ask me. Not leaving my Android with a minimal upgrade like that. Did they not have the money to make a decent looking phone? Even after suing the piss out of everyone? Pfffff.

As big of a fuss Apple made over other phones having hardware buttons...they better never use capacitive or onscreen

I mean 326 ppi is great but I'm speaking more about the same ol designed front.

Now that's a sexy phone. I love the two tone black and that the side looks better too. The headphone jack at the bottom is a great addition, now it's like my Zune hd

they changed absolutley nothing!! they made it thinner?? whoopee! 4 inches?? F THAT, wheres the innovation?? so it's fast and maybe faster than the S3 or One X, who gives a F UCK the difference won't be by much anyways. sorry Apple you got nothing on Android or Jellybean
