iPhone 5 is a Solid Update

The new iPhone has dropped and sold out within an hour of the midnight release on Fri the 14th. Shipping dates afre now out 3-4 weeks online. I purchased the 16gb AT&T Charcoal model. Coming from the iPhone 4, the slightly bigger screen allows for more icons on a single screen. Videos are displayed in a 16:9 format that feels more natural. The thinner size feels substantially lighter than the iPhone4/4s, being that this new version does not have back pain of glass. Instead the back side is aluminum which gives it more of Macbook look. Based on specs, benchmarks have declared the iphone 5 the fastest smartphone on the market...for now. With the gang of Android smartphones coming in the near months it will be interesting to see if the iphone 5 holds it spot at the top. This phone has a slick design along with the same environment Apple users are accustomed to. Below I'll point out the good and the bad based on my time with the phone for now. As far as recommendations, if you have a iPhone 4 or earlier, it is definitely worth the $199 upgrade, If you have a 4s and don't actually need a bigger screen, then I say hold out for the next version, being that you most likely don't have an upgrade to use. You can still upgrade to IOS6 now anyway. Quick note as well, the Verizon iPhone 5 has an unlocked sim card slot meaning if you buy this version you will also be able to use it on AT&T minus the LTE (4G). Something to keep in mind if you have the choice to do so.

The Good

-Slightly bigger screen than previous models

-Thinner & lighter body

-Faster A6 processor along with 1gb of RAM

-LTE 4G data connectivity

-Turn by turn directions via Apple maps app

The Bad

-Proprietary Lightning connecter, new $30 adapter will be needed to use older 30 pin usb cables.

-Verizon and Sprint versions cannot transmit data and voice at the same time. (No simultaneous voice and data)

-IOS6 Maps app is (for now) a downgrade from Google maps on previous versions. 

-No NFC (Near Field Communication) Android phones have had this feature for some time now.
