So the iPhone 5 is finally out which Apple claims is the best thing to happen to the iPhone since the iPhone. Here's a look at some quick key features that are new: 4G LTE:As speculated, the iPhone 5 will come with 4G LTE for high speed Internet. The iPhone 5 also hasdual-band 3.5G HDPA+ which means those who don't have a carrier with 4G can still access high-speed Internet. Just that it won't be 4G. Design and Body: So as predicted, the iPhone 5 has a new glass and aluminum two-tone body. Also the device is only 7.6mm unlike the iPhone 4s, which was 9.3 mm and had a bulky look. The iPhone 5 also has a bigger screen, 4 inches unlike the previous 3.5 inch version. With the iPhone 5, we're seeing a bigger screen and a thinner body. Also, the iPhone 5 is compatible with the Nano-SIM. Apple has ditched the regular SIM card for this one. Screen resolution: Apple has upped the screen resolution to 1136x640 pixel which comes to around 326 ppi. The iPhone 4S had 960x640 pixel resolution on a 3.5 inch screen. A bigger screen means the iPhone is now in the leagues of Samsung Galaxy S III although that one has 4.8 inch screen. Faster Processor: As predicted, the quad-core A6 chip is here. According to Engadget, Tim Cook claimed, the chip to be 22 percent smaller than the A5 and hence more energy-efficient, while at the same time -- he says -- doubling all-round CPU and graphics capabilities. By way of practical benefits, the Apple CEO promises the Pages app will load up 2.1x faster than before, while Keynote attachments will hit the screen 1.7x faster. The clock speed for the chip has not been revealed. Also everyone is still wondering whether Samsung still made these. Let's hope the A6 can compete with Galaxy S III and HTC One X and other quad-core devices.
