The Apple iPhone 5 brings the long anticipated larger screen and more capable internals that we already know are ready to trade blows with the most powerful chipsets out there. There's also the new slender, slimmer body that no photos really do justice to. If all of Apple's claims are true then the iPhone 5 is a real engineering masterpiece - double the performance in a more compact package without sacrificing anything in terms of battery life. 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 the 2G network are GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - GSM A1428 and CDMA 800 / 1900 / 2100 - CDMA A1429 and in the 3G network are HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 - GSM A1428 and 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 and 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 phone has a LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16M colours. Capacitive touch screens work by recognizing the electrical properties of the human body instead of pressure and generally we cannot 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. The screen resolution of the phone is 640 x 1136 pixels. The touchscreen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, oleophobic coating.
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. Memory:
