iPhone 5 was so highly anticipated that Apple has been unable to meet the demand for this product. Some of the delivery dates have been pushed to the first week of October to ensure that it will not fall short of supplies. Some people, however, continue to remain skeptical about it, and they say that the iPhone 5 is nothing but a remodeled iPhone 4S. In some ways that is true but is it not unfair to expect too much from a smartphone? This article will take you through the expectations and the results on the iPhone 5.
Over Expecting Customers
It is true that Apple has established a reputation of doing things that no company had ever attempted before and this reputation had bred a lot of over expectation among its customers. There were people who were very honestly looking forward to the in-built projectors, lit up keyboards, a 15 megapixel camera, computer like processing speeds, etc. But is it not diverting from the whole idea of a smartphone? You cannot and should not add those features on just a phone. But Apple has indeed added a host of new features but is that enough? Let us find out.
New Features On The iPhone 5
4G LTE is probably the biggest selling point of the iPhone 5. Faster internet is something that no one will decline and that is exactly what iPhone 5 with 4G LTE can offer you. However, 4G LTE is not available on all networks and in all areas of the country. There are still places where 4G LTE is not feasible and for people who reside in those areas, 4G LTE becomes redundant.
Then, there is the bigger processor and longer battery life. When Apple released the iOS 6, it was tried on the iPhone 4S and it seemed to iron out most of the speed issues the phone had. There was no need for a new phone to just ensure that you can switch apps faster and get the camera opened faster. However, most people seem to like that and prefer the iPhone 5’s speed to the 4S’s.
Is It Worth Paying For An Upgrade?
When you look to upgrade form a 3GS or a 4S to the iPhone 5, you tend to look at things financially. You will have to sell your old phone for a good price and then invest more to buy a new iPhone. Some might feel that there are better phones out there which are worth lesser than the iPhone 5. Take the example of the Galaxy SIII. As the ads point out, the features are almost the same and the screen is in fact bigger than the iPhone 5’s.
iPhone 5 Still Has Its Loyal Fan Base and Will Continue To Grow
Irrespective of everything, you cannot fail to admire the sophistication and the elegance that the iPhone has over its competitors. That is something which comes naturally to Apple and no other manufacturer can match it. The iPhone 5 will continue to attract more consumers and will be as successful as its predecessors if not more.
