I think a new iPhone was released .
The iPhone 5 is now available but the speed , screen and changes make it a worthwhile upgrade if your phone is 2 years old.I always have a 2 year rule with phones as you will notice the difference over the 2 year time frame when you upgrade and as most telco's contracts are 2 years.
The Good Points
Its quick , the processor in
this phone allows you to go from one task to another with minimal lag time and
in testing that I have read it is more than twice as fast as the iPhone 4S and while using the phone it appears to match these tests.
The screen is a step up from
the last iPhone and the phone is now taller so you can fit another row of icons
on the screen and looks remarkably better than the screens on the iPhone 4 and 4S
The camera has been improved
and produces great results for a phone.There is also now a panoramic function and the camera
on the front has been noticeably improved.
Its thinner and noticeably lighter, while it is longer and is 20% lighter than the iPhone 4s
The 4g in the device on
the Telstra network works exceptionally well and I recorded 23MBps down and 10 mbps up
I like the new lightning connector as the old
connector was nearly 10 years old now and it works no matter
which way you plug it in.” Nothing lasts forever “ and you can buy an adaptor.
The issues that have
arisen currently are all software or human issues
The Map issue
Its not as good
as Google maps was “currently”
The WIFI Issue
There are reports of iPhones having
trouble connecting to Wi-Fi networks or staying on Wi-Fi networks and indeed I experienced this with my iPhone4.
If you’re still
having Wi-Fi problems, you can try the following:
Toggle your Wi-Fi
off and on – Settings app > Wi-Fi OR
Set your device’s
HTTP Proxy to Auto – Settings app > Wi-Fi > Blue icon next to the network
you’re connecting to > Scroll to the bottom
One of these methods
should cure your Wi-Fi troubles.
The Facebook Issue -
Your iPhone has
imported your Facebook friends @facebook.com email addresses not their correct
That’s actually your
fault as most people have not adjusted their Facebook contact settings to their
proper email address not their @facebook address which is in your “ about “
section of your Facebook profile.
The Scratch Issue -
People are reporting
the new iPhone 5 shows scratches - answer be more careful
The Biggest Issue Of
People can't put it
