The design wont set industry level standards like previous ones did.
Guess who is coming to dinner. Its not "Design", its "Patents"

A smaller and an improved speaker

Three microphones, one on the front, one on the back, and another on the bottom

LTE support with 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi combined onto a single
"ultra fast" chip

Apple mistakenly offered the legendary Lighting dock for free on its
UK site and pulled back the deal when it erupted

iPhone 5 won't be able to do calls and data at same time on Sprint and
Verizon (but AT&T is an exception). Those carriers dont do voice over
its 4G LTE. When a call is placed on a 4G LTE of those two, it recedes
to CDMA which cannot handle both data and voice like AT&T does with
its 3G (keep reading)

Game console quality

Game Center, a new Time Shifted
Multiplayer mod which enables players to race with
a friend asynchronously

No street view

Connector is 80 percent
smaller than that of the iPhone

Adapter doesn't work with
speaker docks? Wrong!, here is the Apples official statement
"The Lightning to 30 Pin
adapter supports analog
audio output, USB audio, as
well as syncing and
charging. Lightning to VGA
and Lightning to HDMI cables will be available in
the coming months"

Video and iPod Out not
supported by the adapteri (just iPod
Out, not Audio Out)

700,000 apps

The micro USB is a 5-pin connector, the lightening is 8-pin

The old Map chap used Google's massive keyword search. But apple's new
venture uses Yelp's database. They say it isnt that good

No public transit directions in map

Maps has 100 million business listings (80 million business listings
for Google Maps)

Business listings in Maps are out-sourced from Acxiom Factual and Localeze

Business reviews are sourced from Yelp

New Dock, faster data connection to computers

The ease of
connectivity between different iOS
products, ceases

Cannot use your 4S's Micro-SIM card

With iPhone 4, Apple's first retina display, they
laminated the display to the
glass surface. In i5
Touch sensors are
integrated into the screen (
earlier the display and touch sensors were
two separate things)

Thus a thinner screen.

New displays will be cheaper to replace than previous ones

Apple acquired C3
3D, Placebase and Poly9

light, only 3.95 ounces. Even an ounce lighter than the iPhone 4S (4.9 ounces)

The camera launches itself fast

One-finger typing

The earphone connector is on the

You can flyover (the world) with a two-finger swipe down

No burst mode shooting or a Best Shot mode

The Rumor was that i5 will have a unibody construction similar to the
Macbook Pros and Macbook Airs. Now you got your answer

Be an Android faniac. Androids are released almost weekly. Be an
iphone maniac, you can sigh and wait for 4 to 5 months (in betwixt)
till the new eyephone is released

i5 breed was supposed to be the post-PC era?

Where Android sucks? Lot of lags, frequent reboot and most times
requires resets

Battery is not user replasable

If you want more memory, just buy the most expensive version. Buying a
low memory version and hooking up a memory card must be the most
wisest and logical way I guess. Prove me wrong


Android lets you set "defaults" for apps you want to use instead of
stocks like browser

System-wide Facebook integration

If you have an iphone 4S, you can get (through update) every feature
iphone going to have such as Dedicated signatures for all email
accounts, face time over cellular, flyover, offline reading list,
panorama, passbook, turn by turn navigation, shared photo stream and
VIP inbox etc. So whats the rush?

10-face detection on the rear and single face detection on the front camera

Thinnest smartphone in the world (Who said that? Apple said that mom)

Just hoist the phone aloft and pan across the panoramic view. You get
a seamless panoramic image, suitable for framing

"More development went into the plug than did the phone," one user
comment caught my eyes

4G LTE networks does not do voice and it only does data. Then how
Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S III, a 4G LTE phone, managed to do calls
and data simultaneously ? Samsung has an extra antenna. It fetched
data from the 4G LTE network at the same time when it used another
antenna to do voice

You cant swap SIM cards between i4S and i5. The iPhone 5 uses a
nano-SIM, and the older iPhones utilize a micro- SIM (large)

(Heart) Breaking News! Pricing for unlocked iPhone 5s touch sky, $700/$800/$ 900

Another brilliant comment I found online, "Apple patents the
connector, and then licenses the right to make chargers, docks, etc.
This way, Apple even gets a cut of the sale of third party
accessories. They're cornering a whole extra revenue stream at the
expense of the waste and cost to consumers from needing duplicate
cables and chargers and so on"

Siri still doesnt cater configuration requests, such as "Turn
Bluetooth on," or "Turn ringer off" etc, but does book a restaurant
through OpenTable etc. She doesnt tweak core settings yet

Pictures taken simultaneously while video recording aren't 8
megarpixel shots. They are screen captures of the video itself (aspect
ratio is different and the image quality is weak)

Flyovers only available for large cities, and again not for all of them

Apps do load quicker

It gets warm, when using 4G LTE for flyover in the Maps, calls and Facetime etc

Considering JavaScript performance and 3D graffics rendering, its
twice as fast as the iPhone 4S

Its "Facetime", and its posh presentator AT&T; your required to have a
specific plan to enable FaceTime over cellular

A smartphone is not always about its specs. Its the power of its eco
system and the finest components that will never fail you. Iphone's
platform was the first of its kind which nearly hammered platforms
with (Cr)apps and still stand out of the rest as the best

The 9-pin can be plugged in either way. Its reversible

Every part of the software is rewritten or retouched

The A6 processor is custom-designed to be smaller and more power efficient

Sturdy iCloud integration for music playback via iTunes Match

No option to open web pages in multiple different browsers

Wile iOS 6 is available for any of 3GS, 4, 4S, Siri and Panorama will
ride only on iPhone 5 and 4S

Autobrightness adjustments performance or Ambient Sensor enhanced. It
will find the right brightness balance effectively than an i4

A good update to the iphone 4 and marginal for the 4S

Web and iCloud-connected apps loads up faster

Restaurants and local stores; Yelp ratings and reviews are briskly
shown (not available on Google's Maps app for iphone)

Google's built-in Maps search is more posh than the new Yelp one

The third microphone takes care of audio improvement, enhancing voice
quality, speakerphone quality and adding improved noise cancellation

Wideband Audio; none of the U.S. carriers of the iPhone 5 will support it

Slow motions are smooth than before

A layer is removed from the screen but no harm yet. Its still as crisp
and fast-responding as before

With new mail app you cannot sync your GMail contacts (use Exchange to sync)

Some movies still have letterboxing (shot in the superwide CinemaScope
aspect ratio; 21:9)

Video zoom ins with a tap on the screen

Strict iCloud restrictions

Web pages load quickly

Shared Photo Streams; you can share photos with friends or make your
sisters photos public and take revenge

You remember Symbian second edition phones which vomited all apps
located inside folders when the memory card was removed and
reinserted? (though there was a Python app to cure that) A similar
issue exists in the iOS6 which can be observed when sync through
itunes to replicate your i4

Ergonomics are not that great

The cable looks fragile

Connector is not sturdy

In the Maps app, traffic stats may go missing

Cannot set a limit on data usage (like in Android). LTE can be a pitfall

Safari sometimes loads the cached page instead of refreshing it

No Viruses or Malwares

No fakes that pull user data unbeknown to user

Heavily depends on iTunes

Custom Vibration alerts

It isnt a global LTE phone. LTE roaming is still not possible

44 percent extra color saturation

A boyfriend took his girlfriend to a football game. On the way back
home, the boy asked how was the game from the girl.

"All I heard was quarter back! Quarter back", she replied, "Hello, its
only 25 cents!"

All folks talk fanatically about how app developers will take the
advantage of the added space. Hello! its just 0.5 inches!

There are some camera apps that provide Panorama modes but Apple's
move is the most fine tuned of all

Geekbench score of 1,628, SunSpider scoring an average of 924ms
(guardian.com), its the king of benchmarks

A Passbook API for custom apps to fork into

Maps does show traffic

Wifi doesnt keep pace with LTE. Switching to it instead of Wifi will
be your first concern (when you discover it) even at an expensive
rate. Excessive usage, expensive rates!. A data cap or a bottle neck?

Regarding the battery, still Droid Razr Maxx is the king

Bookmarks arent visual thumbnails like Android offers. In Safari its
just a flat list

iPhone 5 as an hot spot, it gives as strong results as an iPad. Now
tethering charges and data usage fees

Photos added to the Photo Stream appear within 30 seconds

Photo Stream isn't as perfect as Google+ Events and furthermore bit dry

The very top and bottom of the rear is still glass

When compared to other platforms, iOS 6 lacks aesthetics

Lens are guarded with a sapphire crystal glass

The colors are now more saturated but not too oversaturated like most
AMOLEDs. The most interesting fact is, its not so accurate either

A nice readability under sun light

Superb viewing angles

There's distortion with voices when use the speakerphone (keep reading)

A slightly weaker signal strength on Sprint when compared to other
Sprint devices

No continuous focus, only touch focus

Support for the videos playback out of the box is limited to videos
encoded in MPEG-4

Earpods headphones, feels loose in the ear

Videos recorded in low light conditions easily gather noise

A capture rate of 24 frames per second though its 29 on paper

The black surface may gather up fingerprints and skin oil easily that
are difficult to clean

Click options in the camera view and select Panorama, iPhone will
guide you through the rest and will even warn you if you move too fast

The notifications panel lets user post messages to Facebook or Twitter
and thats it. Nothing new other than that in the notification area

Three microphones and beamforming, the reciever hears a hell out from
the calling party

World thought Iphone 5 will shake the world or tear it down into two
pieces, send a cold shockwave through spines of every man, cure
cancer, boil pancakes without real pans, bring back Steve Jobs into
life, pay the national debt of Greece, float itself on air without
human intervene and finally bring world peace and put an end to all
civil wars. Worse, I know few who had plans to set a nuke on fire with
it and throw off there inherited worn out grandpa lighters away. As it
turns out, all rendered futile

The "passes" of Passbook are location-sensitive and shown directly on
your lock screen

New dock doesnt support iPod Out. Sell your BMW that came with that
expensive dock

Its "Lightning" but really based on USB 2.0

Wifi a/b/g/n compatible and dual-band. You can drop jammed 2.4GHz to
get more from 5GHz

The Siri-driven restaurant reservation system is only available in the
US, Canada and Mexico

No live tiles and widgets. Boring. Now with most smart phones the case
is most functions are happening in the lock screen. But with iphone
you have to dig deep into apps and folders to have a look into live

NFC would have made the Passbook much better

The tactile king is still Nokia's Lumia 800

A friction to the edges and the metal back. Its less likely to slip

One layer laid off from the screen. It can be confusing at first

The "Panorama" cannot go beyond 28MBs a scene

One layer is off and its just like your touching a very sexy Pixelized
version of Kate winslet itself with your dumb ass thumbs, only a layer
of pixels deep. A screen intervene is null (no, not that saucy still
from the ship that sunk leaving her ashore)

Its Hanuman! No its Ravan! No its Rama! No actually its iphone's
Panorama! Samsung Panoramas forces user to stay focussed! Just
kidding. Samsung Panoramas force user to stay in one place and move
the camera around. With iphone you can even move yourself. After all
its made in states where the freedome is the most talked about thing.
With that levels of shooting freedom, they have built the true
"Democratic Shot".

Siri wont serve cricket

In the offline mode of Safari, links remain as links unlike Androids
dead links in lethargic PDF like offline docs

Web pages are served swiftly

You cannot flyover most residential areas and less significant or less
storied arenas

No traffic warnings

Maps lack the infografic layers of Google Maps that can be applied for
individual uses

Map's loading is swift unlike Google's. Zooming is smooth and image
processing is brisk

Siri can now easily pick up your words even when the atmosphere is
crowded or noisy

Siri still dates Google as its still not outdated in the area of
search. Siri does Google things if the queries are too stupid and
cannot be interpreted herself. Love or hate?

The new handset is not for "Lets try it again" attitude. If you
disliked the way iphone behaved in the past, you wont like it this
time either

The greenish hue issue of the display of 4S is fixed

Panoramas wont be always perfect. Be prepared to have few freaked out ones

Eight Reminders on one screen (it was five on the iPhone 4S)

In the Mail app, you can preview 6 mails with one line text of each

The extra length spaces for more text above the virtual keys

The extra screen height; pop ups will be bearable

Apple took 5 years to give that extra 0.5 inches of screen

Fits in the pants

The extra pixels cover a bit more of faces on phone calls

An easier grip

The screen is tall but not wide

UI still hasn't changed. Looks like a first gen Ipod touch

For most, iphone was way ahead of the competition when it was first
launched. Now its just catching up

What matters most beside its design gimmic is how well it will perform when it
comes to cellular and GPS signal strength with all that aluminium trunkage

IOS 6 on i4S? On an 800MHz and a
512MB RAM set? It will be bit sluggish

Docs will be furnished with more space beside the virtual keyboard

Landscape-oriented video playback (larger size and less letterboxing)

Samsung's S Beam transfers data between NFC devices

Improved call-management tools

App and iTunes Stores redesigned

Video out isn't supported by that new adapter (a Lightning-to-VGA or
Lightning-to-HDMI cable will be required)

"An entire city is in the ocean, a farm has been labeled as an
airport, highways end in the middle of
nowhere and a hospital now covers the entire center of British city
Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's home" Yahoo reports on Maps app

Apps that uses Google Maps/data, will be redirected to Apple's new map venture

Free turn-by-turn navigation

Name your home with a pseudo (any name other than "Home") as a
security measure. Otherwise it will be easier for thieves to track you
down to your dining room or somewhere more inconvenient

Siri isnt AI-the-perfect, you dont have to bother about the context of
what you command

Siri's dictation isn't perfect (Now I've got two shes that everytime
get the opposite of what I command. Wow! They say Steve Jobs is a
visionary. For whats sake? They say he had a passion for electronics
and used to screw things since he was a child)

Details such as road names seems greater

Data transmission speeds are reportedly at or above comparable Android
LTE devices

Switching between 3G and 4G connectivity, the iPhone 5 does an
excellent job at finding and keeping signals

The Maps app does public transportation directions, but in a different
way. When you click on that bus-shaped icon, it directs you to do a
search for "Routing Apps" in the App Store and you'll be redirected to
a list of apps that offer you public transit information (though non
exists at the time)

Maps will list some important POIs, mostly gas stations and
convenience shops etc

You can send texts or emails, or make phone calls with her without
unlocking the phone

She does weather forecasts and stock prices too

Reportedly, AT&T is still honoring grandfathered unlimited plans for
those who bought the original iPhone. Better stick with AT&T

If it is wires that matters most to you such as Lightning, go wireless

"If iphone doesnt do what I want, there is still one option, "Early
Termination," when I convinced my wife, she demanded two tickets for
the new flick (from Sylvester with Arnold)

New Lightning is nearly 20 percent
faster than previous solutions. But whether its purely a cable miracle
or internal hardware marvel is unknown

Video capturing seems to gather more noise than before

Public transports dismissed but you can get directions for driving or
walking (if you were just confused over all this public transportation
missing link)

3D flyover, just a two-finger swipe away

Apple executives say the smaller "Lightning" connector allowed it to
make the iPhone 5 and new iPod Touch thinner. Now I get it!

AT&T has said you'll be able to keep using your existing plan if you
upgrade to the iPhone 5

Will Strauss, an analyst at Forward Concepts, which studies chips,
says the iPhone 5's all glass and aluminum body precludes it from
using NFC

Even if your contract is up on AT&T and you have an unlimited plan,
you can still get an iPhone 5 and keep the unlimited plan

Google slashed the price of its Maps API by 88 per cent

The Panorama stitches a 360-degree wide image together. Next time you
can send a 360-degree image of your new invention to the
kickstarter.com easily

Just utter "give me directions to'" to Siri, she will transform
herself into a GPS

When you purchase the iPhone 5 through AT&T or Apple, it includes a
SIM, and you activate it with your number through iTunes. You won't
have to swap cards or go to a store either

The Apple's Facebook app API is
public, so non-Apple apps can share to Facebook too

Verizon has a larger 4G LTE coverage than AT&T and Sprint

New customers of Verizon can choose only a shared data plan (costs
more eventually. If your after Verizon, share a plan with the family
members or room mates or you can use multiple devices)

AT&T offers customers to choose a shared data plan or an individual
"tiered" plan. Better if you're on a budget

Your Facebook friends' App Store recommendations will be visible. No
need to waste time on forums asking for best apps

Older apps run letterboxed (tiny black bars on the top and bottom)

Non optimized Apps still work perfectly fine even letterboxed
,especially in portrait mode

New 16:9 aspect ratio reduces or removes letterboxing across the
screen in landscape mode

YouTube videos looks great

LTE comes with expensive rates and data caps

The landscape 16:9 aspect ratio closes to the dimensions of a standard
HDTV screen and most game console screens. Game developers will be

The bottom is freshly filled with new shiny stuff, the headphone jack,
the larger, redesigned speakers, a new type of perforated grille and a
tiny Lightning connector port

Airplay Mirroring

$649 for the 16GB with no contract

Maps replaces the lock screen image when the phone's lying idle and
when required (for turn by turn nav etc)

Snaps are lightning-fast, faster than an i4

You can capture multiple shots with quick tapping. Though its not a
multiburst, a triple-tap can shoot three photos. Something that wasnt
available in i4

Forget about LTE, international roaming is possible between 2G and 3G

Low-light pictures, grainier and lower resolution than images taken in

Slide two fingers up or down on either end of the screen, you can flyover 3Dly

Rotate the maps with two fingers

Go straight to the north by tapping a compass

The virtual keyboard in landscape mode provides more space to t[humb+t]ype

The anodized aluminum is the same as that on its MacBook laptop counterpart

Lightning port-speaker dock incompatibility

Its interesting to see that an updated HDMI adapter will be coming
soon, along with a VGA one for projectors and other displays

Analog and USB audio will flow scot free. But its a speaker dock, an
adapter and your iphone on top of them. How it will look like?

Works with USB 2.0, won't work with USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt or even Micro-USB

In landscape mode, text gets bigger and thus better because page width
stretches out. More words fit on a single line

If you go astray up or down, Panorama will tell you to keep in line

Ultimate goal of Passbook is about taking consumer activity paperless

Three variants to comply with the various 4G LTE networks around. One
for AT&T, another for Sprint and Verizon and a third to handle the LTE
networks in Europe and Asia

When you reach callers via speaker phone, they recieve a clearer call than i4

It's odd. Pages of e-books could feel more stretched

In portrait mode, document text may not seem larger

iPhone 5 doesn't look entirely different with the screen turned off

iCloud Tabs, just like Android's live synchronisation to the Chrome
Browser, which will be available with iOS 6's and Mountain Lion's
Safari. A simple synchronised list of opened tabs between the devices

Will icloud Tabs be available for users of Safari on other non-Apple
devices? Still no words

When you activate a new iPhone with your existing iCloud account, you
can still have your old gold, including photos, apps, settings and
passwords for email, calendars, Wi-Fi,and alarm times etc

Android or Windows will download your apps but you have to fill in the
settings and recreate your alarms and app settings

Turning off notifications with iOS 5 notification center was tricky.
Do Not Disturb seems to fix that. It allows to easily schedule time

From the browser to the photo gallery, there is a share button. Its an
universal list which grows, depending on what software and services
you have installed (from Facebook to your SMS messenger to Bluetooth
transfers and even Pinterest if you install it)

On carriers without LTE, the iPhone 5 will run on dual-band 3.5G HDPA+.

"I was in NYC at a Wall Street dinner and everyone put their BB's on
the table; not a single Iphone. I asked the bankers why and they said,
they are in the business of business and not the toy business" one
reader of a leading web portal commented
