Iphone 5 Review - Check it Out
An event held in the Cupertino talking about the iPhone 5 is surely a direction towards attracting the people with the new features of the latest iPhone 5 devices. This smartphone can be termed as an up gradation of its predecessor smartphone, the iPhone 4 as the latest version includes more or less the same but improved features of the previous model.
Talking about those features which is inclusive in the iPhone 5 and were not a part of the iPhone 4, the topmost most position has been grabbed by processor of the iPhone 5. It will hold an A5 dual core chip processor which has been previously used by the Apple Company in iPad 2. The iPhone 4 had an A4 single core chip which resulted in a quite fast and efficient browsing within the smartphone. This when combined with a great operating system will result the same as it would do with the A5 chip installed in the latest version. But, this technicality cannot be seen by an eye of an ordinary smartphone user.
Moreover, the iPhone 5 is built having a large touch screen display along with an 8 megapixel camera placed on the back portion and the same is capable of shooting a picture of a full 1080p high density video. A problem associated with this size is that users might find it difficult to share these HD video on YouTube as it will take longer time to get itself uploaded. Adding into the problem, a crappy and grainy picture is another problem associated with smartphones in comparison to the full DSLR 8 megapixel camera. So, in conclusion, the iPhone or any other smartphone is not considered as the best option when the question is of taking high quality photographs.
Something more about iPhone 5
When the factor is related to the real quality of the iPhone 5, the operating system under which it operates is what is the support of the hardware and speaks out for you. The iPhone 5 will include an upgrade of iOS 5 and an addition of iCloud technology for storage and backup purposes. The latest iMessage app is another feature included in the iPhone 5 which is actually the application of Apple’s Blackberry Messenger. Assistant is the next feature in the line and provides the opportunity to the user to talk to the device in complete sentences and hey! The result came out to be great. For example, you simply pronounce a song of your choice and the iPhone 5 will play it for you automatically.
All in all, the iPhone 5 is as great as its predecessor and has become more like a status symbol rather than its actual purpose. The iPhone 5 announcement was expected to be made on the 4th of October soon after which the release was expected. According to some sources October 13th could possibly be the launching day for the iPhone 5. The announcement and the launching date of the smartphone hold a 9 day gap within it which is acceptable and in accordance to the past Apple’s release timings.

This also means that in comparison to iPhone 4, the processor will be much more potent and light weighted, unlike iPhone 4.
Another important facet that is worth mentioning is the improved life of the battery which will vary between seven to fourteen hours for AG and 3G respectively. Carriers are also expected to be added where Verizon is on the hit list. Among other aspects there will be newer features and videos of high quality and resolution plus the 8 mega pixel camera which will be a treat for all the photographers out there.

Waiting for the mighty iPhone 5 in 2012!
Pertaining to the popularity of the Apple’s gadgets and the ‘i’ series in particular, no wonder there is a lot of speculation about the iPhone arrival. Apple, till present, has neither affirmed nor denied any of these wide spread predictions. Hence, nothing is definite about the upcoming features of the new iPhone 5 for its launch will establish the facts itself.
As the 5th generation of the iPhone is on the verge of being released, and with all the speculations spreading on the Internet about the iPhone 5, people are anticipating and desperately waiting for the launch of the smartphone. Many fans and current Apple iPhone consumers are wondering what groundbreaking features Apple will add to the new iPhone 5.
This articles summarizes the various features and specifications that are expected to sport the device.
iPhone 5 Features
Although Apple does not reveal the exact specifications and features until the device is officially unveiled, we could dictate some of the main features that are expected. However, rumor of the new iPhone 5 features, in terms of both hardware and software upgrades, will definitely entice any smartphone buyer.
The upcoming phone is expected to sport the Apple’s latest and greatest A5 processor chip, iCloud service, higher-resolution camera, and a 4-inch screen size. Here are some of the most anticipated iPhone 5 features:
Apple announced iOS 5.0 and its features during the WWDC 2011 keynote address on June 6, 2011. The user interface is based on the concept of direct manipulation, using multi-touch gestures. It is expected to come with more than 200 new features that will include improved Notification System, News Stand and iMessage.
iMessage is an application that is developed to compete with Blackberry Messenger. The app will allow iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad users to communicate (much like a chat service) with each other. The iMessage feature has been integrated into the SMS/MMS application used originally on the iPhone models.
The iPhone5 is expected to have the iCloud service.
Apple’s iPhone 5 is expected to feature the new iCloud service for wireless remote access of music from all computers and mobile devices.
The iPhone5 will automatically sync with the iCloud which will allow users to store photos, apps, calendars and documents without having them to store in the phone’s memory. Apple is also looking to tie up with top music label companies to license songs for the iCloud service.
However, rumours state that Apple might release a low-cost “iCloud iPhone” alongside the iPhone 5. It could be named the “iPhone Mini”
“The iPhone Mini (or iPhone Nano, or whatever) could have significantly less storage than a typical iPhone. Most likely 8 gigabytes of storage – the same as the lowest end iPhones right now. Apple won’t prevent users from storing their own content, because that would be crazy. But since it has a small amount of memory, Apple will likely push the ability to stream media via MobileMe as well.”
A5 Processor to power the iPhone5Apple A5 Processor to power iPhone 5
iPhone 5 will house the A5 as the main processor, which technically is the same chip that currently powers the iPad 2. The A5 contains a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with NEON SIMD accelerator and a dual core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, which means that the iPhone5 can do twice the work at once. The processor speed will be somewhere between 1.2 to 1.5 GHz, with probably a 1GB RAM.
The processor upgrade is done not just to increase the processing speed of the phone, but also to compete with the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S II.
The A5 chip might effectively increase the power use, however, it is said that the chip has “got a dynamic power management”, which can lower the [speed] depending on the workload, and thus efficiently make use of the power.
iPhone 5 to Sport a Better Camera
The iPhone 4 sports a 5 megapixel camera, so I’m expecting that the iPhone 5 will have a rear-facing 8MP dual-LED flash camera. However, this isn’t really “awesome”, since most of the high-end Android smartphones come with an 8MP camera. Along with that, the iPhone 5 is expected to have a front-facing camera for video chatting.
iPhone FeaturesAccording to sources, Apple has filed several patent applications relating to 3D picture capturing to the US Patent and Trademark Office later in March. This indicates that the iPhone 5 might feature a 3D camera. The filing indicates that the device will be capable of capturing, processing and rendering 3D images with dual-camera hardware.
Another interesting feature is that the iPhone 5 will be capable of taking pictures in Panorama. It will work similarly to the ’360 Panorama’ application in the App Store. It will let you take pictures in a sequence as you move the camera from one side to another, which in the end will effortlessly stitch the images together to create a panorama.
Additionally, if Apple really wants to keep up with the competition to Android, then it might consider improving upon the video resolution to a full 1080p HD recording. Currently iPhone 4 has a 720p video capture at 30 frames per second.

Display and Resolution
There hasn’t been a better screen resolution since the release of the iPhone 4. Currently the iPhone 4 has a 3.5 inches screen size, and sources indicate that Apple might stay locked with the current size. But a few other sources say that Apple is planning to increase the screen size to 4-inch with higher screen resolution. I feel that Apple could compromise at 3.7-inch or 3.75-inch.

However, the iPhone 5 could be slightly wider and thinner. The dimensions are calculated to be: 4.33″ x 2.36″ and .27″ thickness at the top and .21″ at the bottom, whereas the dimensions of iPhone 4 are: 4.5″ x 2.31″ x .37″
Other iPhone5 Features
Here are some of the other features that we can expect from the iPhone 5:
· Face Recognition Security
· 4G/LTE support – According the AT&T documents leaked by LulzSec, the Apple iPhone 5 will offer 4G and will be LTE (Long Term Evolution) network compatible. LTE is a project of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), and is the latest standard in the mobile network technology.
· A new, sleeker body design
· OLED screen
· Scratch proof and shatter proof screen
· Wireless sync with iTunes
· Extended battery life
· Flash support
· SIM-Less Phone – According to International Business Times, it is rumoured that the iPhone 5 will feature a new SIM-less design with 2 to 3 internal antennas for CDMA and GSM compatibility, which will make it a “worldphone”.
· Physical Keyboard
· Increased Ram (from 512MB to 1GB)
· New Multi-tasking Look
· HD Audio
· Built In GPS
The above mentioned features are some of the improvements that we can expect from Apple. However, we cannot assure you that they can be true, but most of the upgrades are more likely to be utilized.
Apple definitely wants to fight back against Android smartphone makers like HTC and Samsung, and perhaps it is why the new iPhone 5 will host some of the outstanding features.
iPhone 5 Launch Date
Apple follows a tradition to launch new devices in their summer Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), but that didn’t happen this year.
However, BGR reported that an AT&T Vice President has confirmed to several employees that the iPhone 5 that boasts a stronger chip for processing data and a more advanced camera is scheduled to be launched in early October. Additionally, the VP communicated the following to a group of managers: “Expect things to get really, really busy in the next 35-50 days, so prepare your teams accordingly.”
We can expect the announcement of the iPhone 5 in a late September event along with a release date set for early October.
The iPhone 4 has proven to be one of the most successful smartphones of all time with selling over 1.7 million devices in just three days of availability, and we are expecting that the iPhone 5 will certainly replicate this success, and one thing is for sure – the sales of iPhone 5 will definitely boom and we can expect a huge number of people lined up at Apple stores when the device is available for sale.
iPhone 5 Price
At this stage no official price has been unveiled but we expect the iPhone 5 to be the same price than the iPhone 4 when it was released. We will update this section as soon as we have more information on that topic.
