Apple announced the iPhone 5 last week and it was no surprise that it came with a slightly larger 4-inch screen. That might be good for one-handed operation…

I'm not really sure how to react to this. It's both absurd and cool all at once. I wonder how much the magnifier distorts the image?

I distinctly remember a scene from WALL-E that was exactly like this.

Can't say I blame them for making this product. If something's made for an iphone, good chance it'll sell.

This can be put under "7 things that could have made the iPhone 5 an even better phone" Guess what, we think we've just found not one, not two, but SEVEN things that could have made the iphone 5 an even better smartphone, - Improved, more stylish design Don't get us wrong - we love the iphone5's design, and we're sure it is still the same since the first iPhone, but a lot of folks are complaining that the appearance is almost unchanged from the Iphone 3, Iphone 3Gs, iPhone 4 or even the iPhone 4s. - Expandable storage For most users, having internal memory is more than enough, however, it's always appreciated when you can actually expand this storage space with at least 16 or 32GB more! You like storing all your media on your handset? Well, if the iPhone 5 had a microSD card slot, you wouldn't have anything to worry about. Still, we're sure that if you use your internal storage wisely, you shouldn't have any problems with it either. - Customized UI There, we said it! We're actually starting to believe that the same UI looks found on each and every iPhone devices may become boring for users, and thus have a negative effect on the bottom lines for Apple. - More megapixels Sure, iPhone have similar sensor with iPhone 4s just a little compact, but its 8MP sensor doesn't allow you to use "lossless zoom" like on the Nokia 808 PureView with its gigantic 41MP sensor. - Better screen ratio most of the current iPhone users will loved the new taller screen but the weird ratio will give you bad movie experience And don't foget the Bottle-opener as well which is a brilliant idea, and one that will surely be appreciated by every (male) user. What's the one thing that you cannot live without? Of course, it's the bottle-opener! You hear that, Apple.
