Apple iPhone 5
Advantages: Hardware, 4G Capability, Retina Display, Call Quality
Disadvantages: Battery Life, easily scratched screen, Lack of Flash
It has been almost a year since I bought the Iphone 5 handset. What can I say about this phone, Apple have taken the Iphone to another level. What I like about this phone is the improvement in call quality, due to the improved mics, there is like only a second of delay before the person could hear me. I haven't experienced any call drops whatsoever.
The hardware is also absolutely outstanding, everything has been given the finest amount of detail, like how it feels holding it in your hands. The aluminium back is makes the phone look expensive. The mobile also feels incredibly light holding it, also the Iphone 5 is powered by the Apple A6 processor. As a result you will quickly notice the power in how incredibly fast the mobile comes on. Also loading up apps is very quick especially if you compare it to its predecessor.
I also liked the new screen it is half an inch bigger than the iphone 4S. It comes with a 4 inch Retina coupled with the 640X1136 resolution makes the screen look amazing. What I also noticed is that you know got full screen videos and no more black bars like in the Iphone 4S.
Also one of the big bonuses is that the Iphone 5 now support 4G. Which you can get on many plans from mobile providers.
Summary: All I can say is that Iphone 5 is a well deserved upgrade which you will be falling in love with.
