Apple iPhone 5

4 October 2012
  • Summary: The iPhone 5 surpasses its predecessors in virtually every aspect, and it is without a doubt the best offering from Apple so far. Despite the oversight with regards to the maps, it isn't quite the off-putting flaw that makes the iPhone 5 any less of a beast (especially since it can be rectified). While it isn’t exactly ahead of its Android competitors in raw performance, the fact of the matter is that Apple has packaged it in such a way that it works with aplomb.
  • Pros: + A speedier and smoother experience, + Improved battery life
  • Cons: - Horrible built-in mapping solution, - Lack of innovative features on the OS

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: With the iPhone 5, Apple has done everything it needs to on paper: it’s bigger, lighter, and faster. But not by much: it still feels like the iPhone 4 and 4S, and while the 4G connection is a welcome addition, it does little to help with the poor battery life and call quality. Add to that the problems with iOS 6 - uninspiring images from the camera and a terrible mapps app, and you're left with a package that while decent, doesn't really push the smartphone envelope out...
  • Pros: The big news with the iPhone 5 is the new display: for the first time, Apple's jumped from the traditional 3.5-inch panel. It's a welcome move: the longer 4-inch 1136x640 display is as sharp as the original Retina Display, with great viewing angles and print-like detail. Web pages and photos now look like stickers on top of the phone. It’s a little odd getting used to the new, wider screen ratio, but we soon settled right in - and the extra screen real estate is very ...
  • Cons: It’s hard to find faults with the iPhone 5 hardware: it’s refined, and packed with bleeding edge tech. Some people might grumble at the new Lightning port, but Apple had to draw a line in the sand at some point to keep making the iPhone thinner: Apple's AirPlay wireless streaming set up should more than make up for any docks you own now rendered redundant. But it's also hard to be too stunned by it: despite the lack of glass, it still looks eerily similar to the iPhon...

iPhone 5: Her er dommen

11 October 2012
  • Excerpt: At kalde iPhone 5 for teknologisk tilbagestående er det rene vås. Apple har forbedret eller forfinet de mest vitale elementer i telefonen − og har samtidig gjort designet endnu mere strømlinet. Der er blevet snittet et par millimeter af tykkelsen og den er blevet en hel del lettere − helt nøjagtigt 20 procent lettere end iPhone 4G − og det er virkelig mærkbart.
