I am pleased to welcome Olawale Daniel with this fascinating “unbiased” review on the new iPhone5. I am sure all my readers will find the information shared here useful. Thanks for the wonderful article. Here goes…
So finally Apple has launched iPhone 5, creating a bit of happiness and a bit of disappointment among the iPhone fans. The rumours have been hitting the Internet for past few months about its features, price and many other things such as the 4G LTE etc. Apple has put a stop mark to all those rumours by releasing the much acclaimed smartphone.
But does it ends there? Few days before the launch, Apple has made a bad move by filing a lawsuit against Samsung for tampering with its Patent which they claimed to be part of Apple iPhone 5’s major features. Do they won? Yes they did won the case but it later turned out to be one of the worst decision ever made by the Cupertino-based company ever since its inception.
They won but the impact of the lawsuit affected the product’s sales and so many other things – the Apple map saw a huge failure and the generous Siri is at it once again!
We shouldn’t focus much on these Apple’s mistakes (as I recently published an article about the company’s blunder, you can check the link above), but rather explains what comes with the new phone and what users that are yet to buy should be expecting to get from the phone.

It’s the first time when Apple has changed its track by coming up with 4 inch screen in iPhone 5. 4G LTE technology in iPhone 5 is shining from its huge features list. You might be scrolling the web pages to find out its features, price etc. Well, no need to go anywhere as I’m up with the complete list of features of iPhone 5. So let’s have a look at it.
Thinner and Taller
The internal hardware features come at second spot, the first thing that any person notices in smartphone, is its look. iPhone 5 has been able to catch the attraction of people by coming up with thinner and taller body. iPhone 5 is about 18 percent slim as compared to iPhone 4S.

Apple has worked hard to attract the music lovers. iPhone 5 has three microphones: one at the back, one at the top and the last one at the bottom. The three work together to bring maximum quality in sound. Apple claims that iPhone 5 has the capability to reduce the noise of surroundings to provide you clear sound quality, while having talk with your loving beings.
