International calls from your iPhone for less!

iPhone 5Apple’s precious. The enemy of Android smartphones. An exquisite device. The iPhone 5. A heavy name, don’t you think? The name of a smartphone that has been sold in over 5 million units in the first three days since its release and in over 55 million until now. If this isn’t impressing, I don’t know what is. But you don’t have to be impressed by its sale figures, but by what this baby has to offer. Because it comes bearing a lot of gifts stuffed in a body that turns everyone’s head while taking a walk through the smartphone park. Follow the next review and find out more about this hot looking fella’.
The iPhone 5 measures 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm and weighs only 112 grams, having the measurements of a supermodel, being light and slim enough to fit every hand and feel comfortable in it. Its appearance hasn’t been changed, so it’s very similar to its predecessor’s, the iPhone 5 being only a little bit taller, but slimmer than the iPhone 4. You’ll be delighted by the new back design, as it combines metal and glass, thus obtaining a perfect recipe for elegance and beauty. The sexy body is surrounded by a classy metallic frame which adds even more style to the iPhone 5. Overall, this baby is one of the best looking smartphones out there and you’ll agree with me once you see it live and hold it in your hands.
iPhone 5 back sideThe splendid body of the iPhone 5 is home for a 4 inches LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels, a pixel density of 326 ppi, Corning’s Gorilla Glass protection and an oleophobic coating. This amazing Retina display is a delight to look at, as it offers a wonderful image quality with vibrant, punchy colors, an exceptional contrast, very wide viewing angles and a perfect sunlight legibility.
In terms of software, the iPhone 5 comes loaded with the iOS 6 platform and is upgradeable to iOS 7. The new platforms enable you to have more and more control over your device’s settings and customizations, new live animations, offer new useful applications, an updated, smarter Siri, some new dictionaries, improved Maps and so on. The user interface is more intuitive and friendlier than ever and browsing through it will be a delightful experience.
The iPhone 5 is backed by an Apple A6 chipset, having a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, PowerVR SGX 543MP3 GPU, 1 GB of RAM and is available in three versions: with 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. Having these specs, the iPhone 5 is a real beast of a phone, as it’s ultra-fast and everything works like a charm on it.
The iPhone 5 is a great tool for taking pictures, being equipped with an 8 megapixels camera with autofocus that captures photos at a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels and has a LED flash for helping in low light conditions.
The camera application features support for geo-tagging, face and smile detection, touch focus and all the necessary goodies for having a nice experience when taking photos. The image quality is excellent, with accurate colors, good contrast and a high amount of resolved detail. The Macro and Panorama photos look great.
For video recording, you also have a great performer that shoots some beautiful 1080p videos at 30 fps.
At the connectivity department, the iPhone 5 features support for quad-band 2G and quad-band 3G with HSPA, LTE (where it’s available), dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n with Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP and microUSB 2.0.
Some more goodies found in the iPhone 5’s basket are an improved, super-fast Safari that does a great job when surfing the web, a GPS receiver with A-GPS support, a new Siri that can launch apps, knows more languages and is a great companion. You also have a nice, better integration for Facebook and Twitter, a Lost Mode for locking the precious if you’ve lost it (and send a message with your address and such), a document viewer and much more.
My final words about it? The iPhone 5 definitely left me impressed, even if I’m not a fan of Apple’s products. It’s a perfect tool for having with you at all times and, besides being a skilled performer, this sweetheart is also a beautiful piece of work. Beauty and brains, there you have it. Good job, Apple.
