I recently upgraded to a smartphone; I know I’m a little bit behind. I always wanted a smartphone but I could never justify the price. However, with the new iPhone 5 I couldn’t resist the urge to get a smartphone. The iPhone 5 is a great piece of technology, and I will give you my thoughts on this new device.
What I like about the iPhone 5
I love how fast the new iPhone is; it takes very little time to switch between applications and run graphic intensive applications. I also own an iPod Touch (4th generation), and you can notice the difference in speed. The iPhone 5 is also a great device to watch Netflix, and YouTube. The videos load quickly and run smoothly. I often prefer to use my iPhone over my computer and tablet because it is so accessible. The iPhone 5 has an A6 processor with three GPU cores; it is a very fast device. Another great feature on the iPhone 5 is the 8-megapixel camera. It takes great videos, and pictures. The iPhone records video at 1080p, and it looks incredible.
What I don’t like about the iPhone 5
One of the biggest issues I have with the iPhone 5 is that the battery dies way too quickly. This device can barely hold a charge. I usually have to charge it a couple of times throughout the day. However, on a positive note the lightning cable provides a really fast charge. I also don’t like the size of the new iPhone; it is way too tall. I wish that it were the size of my iPod Touch. They need to stop making cell phones so massive and bulky. If they keep increasing the size of these smartphones they are going to be as big as a 7-inch tablet.
Overall I think that the iPhone 5 was a great purchase; it is very fast and easy to use. Hopefully the next iteration has a battery that lasts longer. I give the iPhone 5 an 8.5 out of 10. What do you think about the iPhone 5?
