iphone 5 vs iphone 4s vs iphone 4 vs amazon kindle fire vs amazon kindle Paperwhite

From year to year, iPhone is the most anticipated smartphone. And, although this time the security constrained Apple leaks to the effectiveness of the sieve, the plot is not extinguished, and the fans got a long-awaited holiday. iPhone 5 can be called fully new device, not a cosmetic upgrade of the previous model - is what everyone was waiting for. Joy marred only one small thing - the marriage of production, which has not happened with any other iPhone.

Those headphones that came bundled with the previous model iPhone, have been, frankly, mediocre quality, and therefore often immediately went to the box, or directly in the trash. EarPods - another thing to seek to replace them more seriously, in general, and does not want to. Sound good, even juicy bass. In addition, they better adhere to the walls of the ear canal, so your music is annoying others will not.
  • Appearance
Total redesign has not happened, but apparently the iPhone 5 is different from its predecessor - and this is important. Due to the grown-screen changed body length (from 115 to 123 mm), and on the back of the glass took place aluminum plate (glass have only narrow bands at the top and bottom). In short, around a glance understand: before them the proud owner of an iPhone 5, but there are not any iPhone 4S or, God forgive me, iPhone 4. And just a pleasure to hold in the hands of something new.iPhone 5iPhone 5 and iPhone 4
  • Rear of the iPhone 5
I remember in my time gaming consoles PSP versions were divided into «fat» and «slim». Perhaps, and iPhone will now be «long» and «short»?All controls were in place. On the left side are separated by the volume controls and silent mode switch on the top - power button.The left side of iPhone 5The top end of iPhone 5The right side of iPhone 5Changed the bottom end. It moved the headphone jack, and I must say that so many people were surprised. "When Steve Jobs was not like this" - outraged masses. But it is precisely because it is located on the iPods iPod touch!
  • The lower end iPhone 5
I think, in fact, here he was, and was intended to be in the first model of iPhone - just do not have enough space for the wide 30-pin input, speaker and microphone. Now this problem is resolved: to replace the old interface port came Lightning - 8-pin narrow and thin connector. From a user perspective, it is more convenient: the wire can be inserted into it by either party, and the plug itself slightly smaller. Yet this benefit can not outweigh the problems that cause the lack of backward compatibility. All the old laces go in the trash, followed by the audio system and the docks for iPhone. Of course, the cars because of such trifles change hardly anyone would be, but still unpleasant. Part of the problem may resolve adapter "30-pin-Lightning», but the Apple Store it costs $ 30, but in Russia no reputable dealer will not lower the price tag lower than 2000 rubles.
  • Lightning Cable for iPhone 5.
The fact that the iPhone 5 was the thinnest smartphone in the world (even the thickness was reduced to 7.6 mm) - not very much, after all the struggle is already under way at the level of a few hundredths of a millimeter. Another thing - the mass. iPhone has always weighed more than all of its competitors, but in the atmosphere of the cult Apple is transformed into the concept of the "noble gravity." Say, you hold the smartphone in your hand and you know - solid, real thing, not that these Chinese toys. And it is this feature otherwise seen outside "party." Alas, the show came to an end: iPhone 5 "lost" from 140 to 112 grams, it is now "like everyone else". And no, it does not create a sense of props. But get him on the forehead (admit it, you also dropped over the phone when you read almost lying) is less traumatic.
  • Screen
Display size of the new iPhone has increased by one-half inch, and increase only affects the height (or length, if you will) of the screen. On the density of points is not affected, it remained at 326 ppi, and the resolution reached 640x1136 pixels.Since this change the company is kept secret until the last moment, the developers of third-party programs just was not possible to prepare for the changes. While they have not updated their creations, their applications will not use the whole screen, but only the area 640x960 - with black stripes on the sides. On the white machine it looks bad on black - bearable.Older applications are displayed on the screen of the iPhone 5 with black sidebarsThe screen of the new model has changed structurally, Apple used the technology «in-cell»: touchscreen "implanted" directly into the matrix of the display, and as a result of a smartphone can be made thinner.

Apple did not give universal madness and nuclear race - in the processor A6, which runs the iPhone 5, only two cores. That did not prevent him from becoming twice as productive predecessor. The chip operates at 1.2 GHz and is designed for finer 32-nanometer process technology. Graphics cores in the A6 - three, not two as in the A5 (iPhone 4S), and not four as in A5X (new iPad). By the way, the processor manufacturer was Samsung - can plead and cooperate simultaneously. Added performance and increased memory, the iPhone 5 on board 1 GB of RAM.Apple A6 processor insideApple A6 processor outside

Benchmarks confirm the truthfulness of the words Apple: growth rate - nearly double.

Apple quickly minimizes the size SIM-cards. Without giving a rest after a painful transition to micro-SIM, just two years ago, the world grinds to begin the transition to micro-SIM - and here again the new format, nano-SIM. And this time do not be able to work with scissors - the new SIM cards are thinner, and therefore have to get sandpaper. Well, or the use of force - cropped micro sim with due persistence, still piling into the slot iPhone 5. But this is the right word, violence.
