Is the new iPhone 5 worth buying?

After the much anticipated iPhone 5 worldwide release, there have been many speculations and rumors that question whether the new iPhone 5 is worth buying. It cannot be denied that people are expecting a lot more features from the world’s most popular smartphone, and some were a bit disappointed by the lack of  ”bang” so to speak regarding the latest iPhone 5 unveiling. But still the question remains, is the new iPhone 5 worth buying?


Is The New iPhone 5 Worth Buying?


As consumers, it is our goal to make sure that we make the most out of the money we spend. Apple has built an empire by creating a fan base of returning customers who are overwhelmingly satisfied by their products. Although the latest iPhone 5 unveiling lacked the usual glitz and glamour of past iPhone releases, much is still argued whether the new iPhone 5 is worth buying or not. To give you an idea about what you will be getting from Apple’s latest smartphone, here are three reasons why you should scrap away the “is the new iphone 5 worth buying?” dilemma:

iPhone 5 Is Thinner And Lighter

For years, many hardcore Apple fans have been asking for the iPhone to become thinner and lighter. It is one of the most popular demands among iPhone users and the iPhone 5 made it a point to answer this request. The new iPhone 5 measures 2.31 inches (58.6mm) which is considerably thinner compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 4s. Furthermore, the new iPhone weighs only around 3.95 ounces (112 grams). Now you won’t have to carry a bulky smart phone around! Is the new iPhone worth buying because of this alone? I will say definitely yes.

iPhone 5 Has Improved Camera Capabilities 

Shooting high quality pictures in low light conditions is a problem that you will eventually experience when you are taking photographs with your smartphone. Granted that smartphones aren’t really meant for professional photography, it is still remarkable that Apple has managed to take its camera performance a bit further up compared to its competitors.

The new iPHone 5 camera features an 8-Megapixel iSight camera with Panoramic capabilities. It also features a 1080p HD Video capability which can shoot 30frames per second with audio. With improved video stabilization and ability to implement face-and-geo tagging, the iPhone 5 is worth buying if only for these features alone.



iPhone 5 Has A Larger Display Screen

Now this is something that many Apple fans have been asking for so long. Having a larger display screen is a must-have for the next iPhone and Apple managed to pull it off pretty good with its 1136-by-640 pixel resolution which caps out at 326 pixels-per-inch. The iPhone 5 also introduces a retina display to maximize the display of colors and improve contrast even in low-light or high-light conditions. The larger screen also provides a larger casement for the battery, which means that the iPhone 5 has a longer battery life compared to its predecessors.

These are just 3 of the initial features introduced by the iPhone 5. There are still so many features available for these brand new smartphone from Apple that we’ll discuss in our next posts. After all has been said and done, is the new iPhone 5 worth buying? I would  definitely say yes. Not only is the iPhone 5 the latest line in Apple’s most successful smartphone franchise. More importantly, it gives you a preview of the path that Apple is looking to take in the future of its smartphone production.
