iPhone Expert Comments:

Thinner. Lighter. Faster. Simpler. In nearly every respect, this is an upgrade over the 4S that came before. It's the lightest iPhone, even though it's longer and has a bigger screen.  Since all the extra room happens outside of your grip you hardly notice it, and this also shifts the phone's center of mass away from the center of your hand, which  helps augment the perception of lightness. An all-new aluminum construction extends around the back.The antennas still comprise the rim of the device, thinner now and the gap between them filled with a material whose color matches the body. The new Lightning port Apple introduced is roughly the size of a Micro USB jack and seems to be almost entirely about downsizing components. In the short term it's sure to annoy a handful of customers since it is, of course, incompatible with the roughly 350 million billion iPhone and iPod accessories currently on the market -- a problem mostly rectified by a $30 adapter.The iPhone5 uses iOS 6, which brings the retrieval of documents such as boarding passes, admission tickets, coupons and loyalty cards through its new Passbook app. An iOS device with Passbook can be scanned under a reader to process a mobile payment at participating locations. Apple’s Siri intelligent personal assistant was improved to include the ability to make restaurant reservations, launch apps, dictate Facebook or Twitter updates, retrieve movie reviews and detailed sports statistics. The iPhone 5 features an improved system on chip (SOC), called the Apple A6, which Apple says achieves twice the performance of the A5. The camera has improved low-light performance, and is 40% faster. The iPhone 5's operating memory (LPDDR2-1066 eDRAM) was doubled, from 512 MB to 1 GB. The phone takes a nano-SIM, smaller than the micro-SIM of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. iPhone owners making the switch to 4G LTE will start noticing that staying on LTE versus Wi-Fi might actually produce faster results which is up to twice as fast as average residential wireless router's connection.  It seems that with iPhone 5, Apple fulfills most of the promises that were stated on their website such as "better battery performance", "two times the graphics performance" and "two times faster." The bottom line is that the iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings.
