In the battle between Samsung and Apple the iPhone 5 has beaten Samsung’s flagship phone in sales during the last months of 2012.
The iPhone 5 became the best selling smartphone in the world with the Samsung Galaxy S3 being pushed into third placed behind the iPhone 4S, according to the latest research from Strategy Analytics.
Part I: Can’t Decide On The IPhone 5?
For Smartphone owners, the cellular phone is an integral part of daily life — putting people, places, websites, and games at our fingertips. The decision to change up the appearance, feel, or functionality of our technological best buddy is a big step — not only financially but also personally.
Having been out for four months, it’s now safe to assume that users of Apple’s iPhone 5 have had time to get used to the device and experience the ways in which it differs from previous models. Some people love it and others emphatically do not. Whether or not it will make for a worthwhile purchase depends on your personal preferences and requisites.
In terms of external design and appearance, here are the new model’s key features:
- It’s lighter, weighing in at just 3.9 ounces, while the previous model is 4.8 ounces. It is slimmer, at 7.6 millimeters thick instead of 9.3 millimeters.
- It has an anodized aluminum exterior, as opposed to stainless steel. This makes it softer, smoother, and lighter, but also more prone to cosmetic damages.
- It’s taller, with a half-inch of added height to the screen. This allows for an extra row of icons, but of course fitting the device into your pocket might not fly anymore.
Still can’t decide whether the new external design is awkwardly tall or smooth and sleek? Perhaps understanding the internal design changes will help to determine if this phone is worth the extra money to you:
- The expanded screen fits 18% more pixels, making for better image resolution.
- It has an A6 processor chip, whereas previous models have A4 and A5 chips. The A6 chip makes for longer battery life and all-around quicker functionality.
- It comes with 16, 32, or 64GB of storage. For reference, the iPhone 4S has 16GB, and the iPhone 4 has 8GB.
- The new 8-megapixel camera is designed to decrease noise and increase color vibrancy.
- The iPhone 5’s iOS 6 software has over 200 app and feature updates – Apple Maps clearly not being one of its strong suits.
While you can’t buy just one Ugg boot, and mixing Absolut with Grey Goose is not recommended, iPhone 4 users who are intrigued by the new model but still hesitant to splurge are in luck. By releasing downloadable iOS 6 software, Apple has given customers the ability to get a piece of the iPhone 5 in the body of an older model – free of financial commitment.
