Under the hood.
The phone sports an A6 processor which is smaller and faster than the 4S. That means a faster, richer experience (and a smarter Siri). And it comes with LTE support, which is the latest in acronyms that all spell out the same thing: “faster network speeds.”
The focus on visuals is at the forefront with this new iPhone. Smaller, yet more powerful, cameras on the front and back promise even clearer self-pics in the mirror.
It’s so small it’s big.
The phone body is now thinner and lighter, which should make some fanboys happy about the bulk. But, weirdly, it’s gotten bigger. A larger screen means another row of apps can be displayed, but the actually phone appears to be almost a half an inch longer. It’s going to stick out of my skinny jeans pockets.
Should I get it?
Apple will need to buy a money bin to store its profits from this new phone. Ultimately, some are a bit disappointed in the iPhone 5, although hey, buying one might just be an act of patriotism.
