iPhone 5 - Like Finally

#1  Picture from

Official iPhone 5 Trailer released by Apple

2 words:  Not impressed.  For someone who has been anticipated to get their hands on an iPhone or rather, the NEW iPhone (which obviously does not involve iPhone 4S), all we get is a longer version of an iPhone.  It's like Dark Knight went wrong.  Instead of seeing a whole new design of Batman after such a long time, all you get is a Batman with incomprehensible vocal cord (wait that actually happened).  What I am saying is, I am disappointed with the look of iPhone 5.  I would rather a wider screen instead of a longer one.  It feels like Tim Cook fed viagra to the iPhone instead of enlarging it.  I don't know, maybe some of you do like it longer.

Anyhoo, bout the specs- overall it's quite impressive considering its something so small and so light which you can carry everywhere.  iPhone 5 is 18% thinner than iPhone 4S which also makes it the current thinnest phone in the world (before someone else comes and make another thinner phone).  The Retina display expanded from 3.5" to 4" and that means 5 rows of icon for you users instead of the old four rows.

iPhone 5 also sport a better anti-glare screen but that does not give you an excuse to text or play games while walking and toppling into the next fountain in a mall (it really happened you know).  Another thing bout iPhone 5 which is a huge improvement in my opinion is the back of the phone.  Apple has decided to fix this flaw by replacing the glass back (which many of you has broke this part of your iPhone before) to being a metal back.  Thank goodness it's not the same type of metal as iPod 2nd Generation cause you can trace a criminals' fingerprint using that.

The new A6 chip used in the New iPad is sported in iPhone 5 as well, which means your phone works 2 times faster that the current A5.  Web pages and music loads faster naturally.

Oh for all of you camera lovers, get ready for the big thing.  When Apple released its first iPhone, we were all horrified by the camera resolution cause its plain dreadful.  Today, one of the best portable 'dslr comparable' device is your iPhone 4 or 4S and what do you know, Apple actually put in an effort to further enhance their iPhone's camera experience.  Even though the primary camera is still 8 MP, it features a f2.4 aperture and also a 28 MP panoramic picture to make your photos turn out amazing.  Below are some sample pictures released by Apple.

For a phone that weighs 112 gram, imba speed in surfing the net/play games/call etc etc and it provides such pictures with its camera - what else can you ask for?  (perhaps a bigger screen)

Anyways, the phone features better audio, smaller dock connection, iOS 6, more carriers but one thing that did not change is the battery life.  I mean it did, Apple sort of gave it a 'longer' battery life than iPhone 4S but now that it has a bigger screen and faster processor, it means giving you the same poor battery life spotted in iPhone 4S.

For those of you who can't wait to get your hands on it, congratulations if you are living in this 9 countries namely:  United States, Canada, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong - You can get it by 21st September 2012.  The rest of the world can just wait for its presence to arrive.

Now the question is:  16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB?  And Black or White?
