Pros and Cons of the iPhone 5

by admin on February 22, 2013

The iPhone 5, the latest Apple product, is regarded as ‘the thinnest, lightest, fastest iPhone ever’. Though Apple states quite a lot of stunning features of the phone on their website, there are naturally a few cons associated with it. All of those who are interested in purchasing an iPhone 5 would really want to find out if the features are worth the hefty price tag or not.

There is a really impressive way to solve this problem. You can get all the amazing features you like without having to pay the high price. The solution lies in buying a used Apple iPhone 5. Since the iPhone 5 has not been in the market very long, the used iPhone will probably as good as new.

The pros and cons of iPhone 5 can help you decide which option is better: purchasing a brand new iPhone 5 or buying a used Apple iPhone 5.

Pros

Screen

The iPhone 5 screen is 4 inches which is the biggest size when compared to all previous models in the iPhone line. This may be smaller than other competing manufacturers but the resolution and the display quality is incomparable to any other screen.

4G LTE

As of now, 4G networks are characterized by the fastest data speeds. LTE is the communication standard used for 4G. The iPhone supports 4G LTE communication which makes it really speedy.

Battery Life

The most notable con of previous iPhones is the weak battery life. iPhone 5’s battery life is much better than all previous models, and can last for hours even if Wi-Fi is on.

Processor

iPhone 5 features an A6 chip, which really improves the phone’s speed. If you are a gaming addict, you will like this new addition.

Cons

iOS 6

iPhone 5 uses iOS 6, which is marked by new features such as an improved Siri, 3D maps and turn – by -turn navigation. However, you can easily upgrade your iPhone 4S to the same operating system and that too for free. Even if you do not have an iPhone 4S, most of the features of the new OS are still found in other recent models of the iPhone and iPad. If you are fine with this, then you can skip purchasing a new model or buying a used Apple iPhone 5.

4G LTE

Though 4G was mentioned in the pros, it comes with a disadvantage as well. If you do not travel frequently, then you might not need the high speeds. You have to pay an extra price for this feature so there is no reason for buying a used Apple iPhone 5 or a new one when you will not utilize it to the fullest. Secondly, 4G is available in limited regions so you might be able to use it.

Design

iPhone 5 is the newest Apple product, but the design is not. It is very close in appearance to iPhone 4/4S, which set new design standards at their launch.
