Cell Phone Reviews


During the past few months the blogosphere has been assaulted by rumors and leaks regarding the iPhone 5, not only because there are many Apple enthusiasts out there but also because it was said that once the next-gen iPhone hits the market it will put the Samsung Galaxy S3 to shame. We don't know if that will actually be the case since the Galaxy S3 managed to surpass Apple's sales figures in the US roughly a couple of weeks ago, but regardless, every tech enthusiasts is eager to learn more about the iPhone 5.

Fortunately the digging for clues and leaks is now over because the company has finally unveiled their upcoming flagship handset.

As expected the new iPhone 5 comes with a larger screen, but not large enough to drive previous iPhone owners away. The upcoming handset will sport a 4 inch widescreen display boasting a resolution of 640 x 1136 and Apple claims that the new panel delivers a 44% improvement in color saturation when compared with the iPhone 4S.

Once again, as previously speculated by many, Apple has finally made its first steps into the LTE market and the iPhone 5 will be the company's first LTE-enabled smartphone.

The new model has been built from aluminum and glass; it's the thinnest and lightest iPhone to date and packs an A6 CPU that is supposedly twice as fast as the previously used A5 processor. It also packs an 8MP camera on the back featuring five-element lens with sapphire crystal and according to Apple, photo taking should be 40% faster than on the previous model.

Software updates have also been made and current iOS6 apps are currently updated in order to match the widescreen form-factor. Siri received its own share of enhancements, Safari will now offer fullscreen mode and Maps now offers 3D imagery.

In terms of storage the iPhone 5 will not be available in the 8 GB flavor but instead it will come with 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. Prices will vary from $199 to $299 and $399 respectively, depending on the variant. You'll be able to pre-order the handset starting with Friday, September 14th and the expected shipping date is September 21st.

Overall, the iPhone 5 is a step-up from the 4S and it's definitely faster than its predecessor, but it's nothing more than we've already expected.

    hii DustenRust! Hey I am really excited for iPhone 5. Its look is thin, light in weight and faster in terms of performance. One can also opt for the beautiful covers and cases for iPhone, to prevent scratches & cracks.

    I heard that it has the specs almost the same with iPhone 4S so I guess it's not worth buying?
