About Apple iPhone 5
There's a reason customers line up around the block when a new iPhone is released. Apple users know to expect good things from new products, and the iPhone 5 is no exception. It is lighter, faster, and has a larger screen than its predecessors have.
The iPhone 5 is synonymous with style. Apple designed it with sleek, two-toned, pigmented glass. The phone is 4.87 inches tall to make room for the bigger 4-inch screen. It is only 112 grams, lighter than other iPhone models along with most of the competition. Even the Retina Display is brighter and crisper. It's expanded to 1136 by 340 pixels with the same great 326 ppi resolution. Of course, none of that matters if you cannot keep a call; the advanced antenna makes lost calls practically obsolete. The same popular iOS operating system makes it easy to add and delete apps whenever you want. Keep in touch with friends with Apple's FaceTime app, which is better than ever in HD.
When you purchase an iPhone 5 from a cell phone service provider to receive a considerable discount, you have to sign a two-year contract. Factory unlocked iPhone 5s are not associated with any carrier and do not need a contract. Although unlocked phones are priced higher, the user has a few advantages, as unlocked phones can be used with almost any carrier with no contract. International travelers can purchase temporary SIM cards to avoid high surcharges. Be sure to protect your iPhone 5 with a case or cover. Cases for the iPhone 5 come in a variety of styles, including snap-on, ultra-thin brushed aluminum, rugged rubber matte and hard case cover shells.
And the 8 is nearly twice as good as the 5…
Remember the media frenzy and consumer hubbub surrounding the iPhone 5? That’s nothing compared to the 8. The iPhone 8 and the new iPhone X are major upgrades in every way from the iPhone 5. From the OLED screen, giving the 8 a longer battery life, to the faster processor and two performance cores, the iPhone 8 is a smartphone designed for the multi-tasking, fun-having user of today.
While the 5’s camera was by no means anything to complain about back in the day, the 8 features a 12MP camera as well as a wide-angle and telephoto lens. The iPhone 8 also includes an A11 chip, as well as a crystal-clear display that offers 326 ppi on the 8 and 401 ppi on the 8 Plus. The all-glass 8 is sturdy, durable, and dust and water resistant.
The last new iPhone available is the X, which features solid screen from top to bottom, making it an iPhone with no Home button in sight. This sleek smartphone is packed with features, including the vivid and bright Super Retina screen with a high contrast ratio and 2436 by 1125 pixel resolution, creating vibrant colors and detailed images. The phone can complete a quick charge up to 50 percent in half an hour.
Should you make the switch? With specs and accessories this good, like Augmented Reality and a wireless charging option, the iPhone 8 and the X are competitive phones to upgrade to. Look out for the 8 and 8 Plus and enjoy the latest breakthroughs in smartphone technology, or order the X and bask in a spectrum of bright colors twinkling out from a 5.8-inch screen.
