Ah, to review the iPhone 5; what a blessing, and what a curse. It`s actually funny to think that there was a time not that long ago that the iPhone wasn`t even a thing, let alone an iconic part of pop culture. A time when an Apple-made phone was just a fantasy; a blogger`s fever-dream; a secret glimmer in the eye of Steve Jobs and his team of engineers and designers.
But the iPhone has become very real. In fact, it`s grown up, moved out, and taken over the world. Well, half the world anyhow. These days the iPhone isn`t just components on a breadboard in a lab in Cupertino, it`s the device by which all others are measured. And that makes for some interesting measuring indeed.
The new iteration of Apple`s phone is everything it should be: faster, smarter, thinner, and lighter. It boasts LTE data speeds, improved cameras, a larger screen with a higher resolution, and a design which while not groundbreaking is unquestionably beautiful. But it`s also very much the iPhone you`ve seen before. Apple`s iOS 6 software is not a leap forward, but a small jump, and the phone design is an evolution of the iPhone 4S, not a revolutionary new spin.
So does the new iPhone 5 retain its title as MVP in smartphones, or is it just another contender in a big, big game? Read on for my full review and find out.
