Thinner. Lighter. Faster. Simpler. The moment the iPhone 5 was unveiled we knew that it was checking off all the right boxes, folding in all the improvements and refinements people have been demanding over the past year -- yet plenty of folks still went to their respective social networks to type out their bitter disappointment. Is it so good it was worth waiting for?
Apple’s iPhone 5 is practically the same phone as before! It’s just a little thinner and a little faster, no big deal! Right? Well, maybe. But in true Apple fashion, the real story is the way these refinements play into the bigger picture of the iPhone itself, and how the best smartphone in the world just got even better.
First off, the moment you pick up the iPhone 5, the one thing you’ll notice off the bat is just how light this thing in. It’s around 18% lighter than the iPhone 4S, but since the size of the phone has increased, it’s spread across a larger surface and the difference ends up feeling much more significant than just 18%.
The look of the iPhone 5 has changed in a few ways, even though it’s still familiar. Obviously there’s a new screen size and aspect ratio here — 4-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio versus 3.5-inch and 4:3 on the iPhone 4S — and the iPhone 5 is taller than each iPhone before it. Apple has reduced the amount of space between the ear speaker and the display on the top, and between the home button and display on the bottom, thus making the phone just tall enough to accommodate a taller screen, and not stretching it out more than it needed to.
