iPhone 5 still designed to fit your hand, confirms display specs
posted by Michael H. / Sep 12, 2012, 12:26 PM
The display is as expected a 4" display with a 1136 x 640 screen resolution, which means it has a PPI of 326, which definitely keeps the device in the upper echelon of PPI for a smartphone. The device as a whole is 20% lighter, which is in part due to the in-cell touch technology in the display that we have expected. The touch sensors are now built into the displays that Apple has purchased for the iPhone, making it thinner, and Apple claims this will also make for better viewing in sunlight. On top of that, the display is said to have 44% better color saturation
And, as for why Apple designed it to be longer, but about the same width as previous models? "It's because of your hand. It should fit there. That's how we designed the iPhone 5."
Makes sense except for the fact that everyone has different hands. We're unsure whose specific hand was used for this measurement.

So this is pretty much what everyone expected the iPhone 4S to be last year, so far...

Nice thing to have, but neither a surprise nor a revolution.

This year, Samsung and Nokia made bigger and far more interesting headlines and innovations with Sony slight behind. Apple has lost its edge this year.

That's said EVERY time they release a phone.. and yet people flock to purchase it like it's the miracle cure to bring world peace. Apple doesn't have to do more, not until their consumers demand it.

Not this year. The onslaught of Galaxy S3 and Note 2 and the introduction of WP8 in new Nokia Lumia phones will bite a huge chunk of Apple sales. Also, there is no real drive for 4 and 4s owners to jump to iPhone 5 since there barely any significant change from 4s-5 and iOS getting pretty old. When S3 came out, a significant number of S2 owners express a lot of interest. Same story with the new Lumia phones. Apple however, comments in other sites especially Engadget readers express disappointment right now as I type this.

Nothing surprising, mostly phones has same spec with iphone 5. Other phone manufacturers was able to improve, innovate, and enhanced more their phones. On the other hand only screen size apple manage to change, other specs same with other phone. If people still buy this phone, apple fool them lol

"And, as for why Apple designed it to be longer, but about the same width as previous models? "It's because of your hand. It should fit there. That's how we designed the iPhone 5." This made me laugh, poor sheep can't hold anything else beside an iPhone, how sad they will believe that.

I have a Galaxy S3, and I'm in no way shape or form an apple fanboy. But wow, you all need to calm down. This article isn't saying that this screen is revolutionary, it's just confirming specs that were "speculated."

as a technologist it is not good and well not so bad. In my opinion because well it is basically what people expected to be and what has been leaked, so at least they fit to those standards but i would love to see the display to be a little bigger, hover at the 4.3 mark which is the standard average for phones right now, and would love the display resolution to be at least 720hd. LTE no surprised there but lets also so what samsung take on that. um well since there is no ram specs nor the processor speed it is hard to tell but it sounds like what i have been reading is that the processor is most likely will be an overclocked dual core processor around the 1.8ghz range and ram most likely will 1GB of ram. Ios6 well lots of refinement to apps but nothing new kind of disappointed in that. The camera is a lot better 8MP isight camera. Facetime over cell networks was a given. all in all a good decent announcement just wished it would been more of a big must have impact than of a check of list. main point ok but disappointing.
