The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It's absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe.



Network:

Operating frequency bands of any mobile phone is the key part of its specification. The supported frequency bands only determine whether a certain handset is compatible with a certain network carrier. The operating frequency brands of this phone in 2G network are GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - GSM A1428, CDMA 800 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 - CDMA A1429, in the 3G network are HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 - GSM A1428, CDMA2000 1xEV-DO - CDMA A1429 and in the 4G network are LTE 700 MHz Class 17 / 1700 / 2100 - GSM A1428 or LTE 850 / 1800 / 2100 - GSM A1429, LTE 700 / 850 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 - CDMA A1429.

Body and Display:

The dimensions of the phone are 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm. It weighs about 112 grams. The type of the touch screen is LED-backlit IPS TFT, capacitive touchscreen, with 16M colours. Capacitive touch screens work by recognizing the electrical properties of the human body instead of pressure and generally we can’t use stylus in capacitive touch screens and so handwriting recognition is not allowed in capacitive touch screens. But capacitive touch screens are more sensitive than resistive touch screens.

The screen size is 4.0 inches with approximately 326 ppi pixel density. Pixel density refers to the concentration of pixels on a particular display, measured in pixels per inch (ppi). Pixel density is calculated by dividing the diagonal pixel resolution of a display by its diagonal size. The screen resolution of the phone is 640 x 1136 pixels.

It has multitouch feature also. Multitouch refers to the ability of a touch sensing surface to recognize the presence of two or more points of contact with the touch sensing surface. The constant tracking of the multiple points allows the mobile phone interface to recognize gestures, which enable advanced functionality such as pinch-to-zoom.

The touchscreen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, Oleophobic coating. Gorilla Glass, manufactured by Corning, is an alkali-aluminosilicate sheet glass engineered specifically to be thin, light and damage-resistant. Its primary application is as a cover glass for the exterior of portable electronic devices with screens, such as mobile phones, portable media players, and laptop computer displays. Gorilla Glass's most useful qualities are its strength, allowing very thin glass to be made without excessive fragility, and scratch resistance.

Memory:

The phone does not have a microSD card slot. This is a major drawback of this phone. Yet the internal memory of the phone is good. It comes with variants of 16GB/32GB/64GB internal memory. The phone also comes with 1GB Random Access Memory. The features of the phonebook include Unlimited entries, Caller groups, Multiple numbers per contact, Search by both first and last name, Picture ID, Ring ID etc.

Sensors, Radio, GPS and Java:

The phone has sensors like Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass etc. GPS is also available with A-GPS support and GLONASS. Global Positioning System is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather, anywhere on or near the Earth, where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. There is no Java feature. It does not have FM Radio.

Retina Display:

Apple Iphone 5 has a larger Retina display. At 326 pixels per inch, it has a pixel density so high your eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. And as stunning as the Retina display is on the iPhone 4S, this one gives you 18 percent more pixels for an impressive 1136-by-640 resolution. Colors get a boost, too, with color saturation that’s 44 percent greater than before. So with iPhone 5, the games you play, the words you read, the images you see, and the apps you love look and feel incredibly vivid and lifelike. For big-time entertainment, iPhone 5 lets you watch widescreen HD video in all its glory — without letterboxing.

Siri:

Siri is the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done, just by asking. With iOS 6, Siri understands more questions, knows more answers, and gives you a lot more to talk about. Ask Siri about sports scores and stats, where to eat, what movies to see — even ask Siri to make Facebook posts or tweet for you. And Siri is fluent in more languages, so it does more things in more countries.
