The iPhone 5 is the latest phone from Apple, and many people have very high opinions of this stunning smartphone. While it’s certainly not the cheapest mobile phone you can buy today, it has a lot of features and is very well respected by both people who own it and people who don’t. Whether or not the iPhone 5 is a great phone is purely down to personal opinion, but here are some of the features which many people seem to think are good about it.
1. Thin Design
Smartphone lovers thought the iPhone 4S was thin until the iPhone 5 came along. It’s now 18% thinner than its predecessor, yet boasts much better features. The slim design makes the iPhone 5 fit easier into your hand, your pockets and your bag. The disadvantage, is that cases used for the iPhone 4 and 4S don’t fit the iPhone 5, so if you’re upgrading from the 4/4S to the 5, you’ll have to upgrade your cases and covers too. The only exception to this is some universal covers like bike holders and accessories like that.
2. Tall Design
As well as being thin, the tall design of the iPhone 5 claims to make things much clearer and brighter on the screen. The width is the same as the iPhone 4S, but the length is nearly nine millimetres taller. Because of this, it fits more apps on the home screen and allows users to view more messages, more events and more of everything on the phone.
3. Better Battery Life
The battery life is something that has been greatly criticised in the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. The battery life was said to be considerably poor, especially considering that the iPhone isn’t the cheapest mobile phone on the market. The iPhone 5 now boasts up to eight hours of talk time and browsing the web before having to charge your phone again, which could make a big difference to somebody who has previously used the iPhone 4 or 4S.
4. New Cables
To the distress of some Apple fans, and many mobile accessory companies, the iPhone 5 comes with an all new lightning cable. This annoyed many existing iPhone owners looking to upgrade because their accessories were rendered useless without an adaptor, and an adapter wasn’t always an option.
