iPhone5 Reviews

The iPhone 5 was officially released in a spit, and it still delivered 5 million units for three days. Most of the Apple Stores in the United States are now out of stock, and website bookings have to wait three to four weeks. (Of course, compared with a certain coarse grain of 300,000 units in 4 minutes, it is still weak.) I believe that after watching the digital channel’s hands-on demo, I will definitely want to know more about this new sixth-generation iPhone.
From the overall appearance, i has been redesigned, but still continues the style of the iPhone 4/4S. This is a bit of a criticism, because the iPhone 5 and the design leaked a few months ago are basically the same, and many users who are looking forward to the new design after two generations of the same appearance of the iPhone are slightly disappointed.
The body of the iPhone 5 is made of metal aluminum and glass, and the front is almost the extended version of the 4S. In terms of width, the iPhone 5 is exactly the same as the 4S, except that the “height” has grown by nearly 1 cm. The thickness of the fuselage has also dropped from 9.3 mm to 7.6 mm in the previous generation (although Apple claims to be the thinnest in the world, but it is not the case, OPPO and VIVO do not do it), and the weight is reduced by nearly 30 grams. After first getting started, you can clearly feel the difference in weight between iPhone 5 and 4S. In terms of personal feeling, this lighter, thinner and longer body design is indeed better than 4S in terms of grip.
The author speculates that the appearance of the iPhone in the future may not change much. In fact, this is in line with Apple’s philosophy. When the design of the hardware is already perfect and difficult to break through (the design of the iPhone 4 is already the ultimate), it is better to shift its focus to software and services with its deliberate and deliberate change. That’s why the design of the MacBook Pro and iMac series computers has been in use for more than five years.
Although the appearance does not bring us freshness, only when the iPhone 5 is in the hand can you really feel how different it is from the previous generation. The iPhone 5 is 20% lighter than the iPhone 4S, only 112 grams, and its thickness is 18% thinner than the iPhone 4S, only 7.6 millimeters, so that there is no sense of presence in the hands.
But in fact, the iPhone 5 feels quite good, it uses the Unibody body, the body is full of metal touch. The back is made up of two materials, the top and bottom are the same glass as the iPhone 4S, and the middle is the same material as the MacBook Pro and iPad. This combination creates a choice of “black with carbon black” and “white with silver”, which is more suitable for the Mac. The iPhone 5 also abandoned the bezel of the metal-to-rubber antenna of the iPhone 4S and replaced it with a metal case with a corner.
Although the aluminum alloy material brings a good texture and feel, even the anodization can not cover the fragility of the aluminum itself. In normal use, if you are not careful, you will leave some minor scars. This is more obvious in the black version, and there is a rumor that the black “paint off” on the market. Therefore, it is recommended that careless students still give the iPhone 5 a mobile phone case that can protect the frame. Compared to this, the metal on the back is quite special. After testing, even if scratches are left on the metal behind it, it can be magically restored automatically by simple finger rubbing.

The biggest change in the iPhone 5 was the abandonment of the 5-year-old 3.5-inch screen, which stretched the screen to 4 inches with the same width. The iPhone 5 uses a new 1136×640 resolution to maintain 326 ppi of the retina display. The most intuitive feeling of these changes is that the screen is much longer, and the main interface is changed from the original 4 lines of icons to the dot to 5 lines. It is easy to be overlooked that the folder can now add more lines. Place 16 programs. The 4-inch screen may be Apple’s response to consumer demand, or it may be a compromise. It’s hard to say whether the new screen size is good or bad.
The advantages are obvious. The 4-inch screen brings a larger display space, which is even more apparent when the virtual keyboard appears. The constant width makes the iPhone 5 still easy to operate with one hand. After holding the iPhone 5 with your left hand, you can reach most of the screen with your thumb. In addition, the 16:9 screen is closer to the resolution ratio of widescreen movies, so that watching movies is no longer as obvious as the previous generation iPhone.
The downside is that it is also an impossible problem. Abandoning the 3:2 screen is actually destroying the ecosystem that has continued from the first generation iPhone to the iPad. Developers have to consider two screen ratios. Otherwise, as you can see now, the iPhone 5 will have two thick black edges when running an app that is not optimized for optimization. It feels like running an iPhone app on an iPad. For applications of content classes and tool classes, modifications may be easier, as long as the interface is not redesigned, developers can use relative layouts to solve screen problems by giving up absolute layout. But for game programs that are already on the shelves, this modification is a huge project. Fortunately, Apple has stopped selling the iPhone 3GS and can focus on high resolution.
As the screen lengthens, when the photo is taken and viewed, although the screen looks and fills up, this is the result of automatic zooming, and the left and right sides are not displayed. When the photo is completely displayed by the gesture of the two-pointed internal contraction, it is found that the upper and lower sides also have obvious black edges. At the same time, the new 4-inch screen also compensates for the lack of coolness of the iPhone 4S, the saturation is higher, and the display effect is very bright.

The iPhone 5 is powered by the new Apple A6 chip, dual-core 1G memory. The official claims that performance is twice that of the previous generation (previous generation should refer to the A5 on the iPhone 4S, not the A5X chip on the third-generation iPad.), but from the running point data, this is still a conservative statement. The iPhone 5 is more than twice as powerful as the iPhone 4S, and it is an Android phone that directly surpasses all quad-core 2G memory on the market. Running points can measure only the hardware performance, but not the actual experience. The iPhone’s hardware has always been better than the Android platform mobile phone that is famous for its hard-working hardware. So the result of this time is also very surprising to the authors who have not always valued the running points.
From the actual experience, on the native iOS 6, the iPhone 5 runs very smoothly, and even if you use a function like flyover that requires a lot of computation and takes up a lot of memory, you won’t feel stuck.
The battery has become a serious injury that restricts the development of mobile phones. Due to the slimmer body, the iPhone 5’s battery capacity is only 10 mAh more than the iPhone 4S’s 1439 mAh. The official said that the standby time is 225 hours, although it is worse than the iPhone 4S, but still far less than the iPhone 4. In terms of actual use, a heavy user like the author can drain the battery for a long time, compared to the iPhone 4S. But considering that the screen gets bigger and the usage time doesn’t get shorter, the author is already satisfied, and I can’t talk about disappointment.
If you are a strong mobile phone, you can’t call it. Although the iPhone 5 is tempting, the Nano-sim card used by it has become the biggest obstacle to us. Especially for mainland users, before the licensed version is available, the carrier has not yet launched the Nano-sim card. Want to use the iPhone 5, then cutting the card is imperative. After all, we spent thousands of dollars not buying a Touch.
The first thing you can tell is that whether you are a regular Sim card or a Micro-sim card used in the iPhone 4 and 4S, you can safely cut the size of the Nano-sim card, and you can put it into the iPhone 5 without polishing the thickness. use. In addition, if you are a Micro-sim card user, you must use the restore card cover to restore the size of a normal Sim card before you cut it into a Nano card, and then put it into the card cutter. (Of course, this is only for the type used by the author. Card cutter).

As the screen of the iPhone 5 becomes longer, the compatibility of the software has become a new topic. At present, most of the software runs on the iPhone 5, and only presents a piece at the top and bottom of the screen based on the original resolution. The black side is not very beautiful. Perhaps the two extra areas will soon be matched by many APP advertisers. At present, only a small number of software can perfectly adapt to the resolution of the iPhone 5, but with the appeal of Apple, various software vendors must have started the relevant APP update plan, I believe we can see more on the iPhone 5 soon. Full screen software.
iOS6 has been officially launched on the 20th. In addition to the newly added panoramic camera mode mentioned above, the most direct contact with the iPhone 5 is that the iOS6 version of Safari has started to support full-screen browsing mode, with the iPhone 5’s 4.0-inch 16:9 The screen, the Internet experience is better. The Chinese version of Siri is equally exciting, and the Chinese recognition ability is not bad, but the Siri language is not smooth enough, I hope to be improved in the future. In addition, iOS6 also added a voice entry function. After the experience, the recognition rate is still quite good, and the text input efficiency will be greatly improved.
Of course, there is a good side, but there is also a helpless side for us, especially for mainland users. Apple’s proud 3D map does not support mainland China (supported by Hong Kong), we still live in the 2D world. Similarly, Apple’s e-wallet application Passbook currently only has support for applications such as QQ movie tickets and Ctrip, and the function is very imperfect, we can only sigh.

There is a problem with the iPhone 5. But the biggest problem is not innovation, but it has abandoned the 2:3 screen ratio that has survived the past five years, hurting the original ecosystem. The new resolution requires developers to redesign the software and consider the two screen ratios, at least for the next two years.
The outside world is generally disappointed with the iPhone 5. Some people say that Jobs is gone, and Apple has declined. Don’t worry too much about these comments. This kind of thing happens every year. When the first iPhone was released, there was no software support, no 3G, too expensive. Both iPhone 3GS and 4S were accused of no new ideas; iPhone 4 is also a yellow screen and a “signal gate.” Two and a half years ago, when the iPad was just released, wasn’t it said by many people that it was just a big-screen iPod touch? Apple is always Apple, and it has been proven to us once. Even if the worst plan is made, there is no continuous innovation. Within two years, the smartphone is still the era of the iPhone.
From Apple, the long-term accumulation of platform advantages, whether it is the number and quality of software in the App Store, the huge resources owned by iTunes, and the user experience brought by the combination of software and hardware, these are other vendors. Can’t surpass in the short term. From the user’s point of view, everyone has been spoiled by Apple’s design and service. iCloud integrates the service and in fact “kidnapped” users. Because, when your contacts, calendar, and other information are already on Apple’s servers, you’ll naturally consider the next iPhone instead of other phones. And after you and the people around you are used to iMessage, will you not be willing to pay $20 a month for operators to purchase SMS packages?

This is only the worst plan.
So why are we disappointed with the iPhone 5? There may be three reasons: 1. The expectation is too high and the desire is dissatisfied; 2. There is no surprise in the early disclosure; 3, the lack of innovation is worried about the future.
