#5 is alive

Well, my iPhone 5 finally arrived! I am ecstatic at the moment. I broke my 4S by driving over it some months ago. I’ve been using my iPhone 4 since, and it has been hell. It seems as though the phone started acting up just because I was replacing it. All of a sudden the home button would not respond consistently. It would lag and freeze up. But that’s all behind me now and I will give you my impressions of this phone.
Out-of-the-box the first thing that I Noticed was the length. It is a taller phone, but that height makes it look as if it’s thinner. I can imagine that if you did not have an older iPhone to compare it to, you would think that this phone was skinnier than the predecessors. Secondly, it’s very light. So light in fact that it almost feels as if it’s hollow. Having taken my 4S apart to fix the screen, I am totally aware of all of the components of the phone. It is amazing that they were able to accomplish what they have with this phone in such limited space. It is very attractive to look at. I’m not saying that because I’m some kind of fanboy, I’m just being honest. The next thing that I noticed is that the front screen is almost flush with the case. This makes a huge difference. If you were to drop one of the other phones they would be susceptible to damage because it is exposed. I am very glad to see that change. Performance wise there is no comparison. This phone blows away my older phone.
I’ve not taken any pictures as yet but that will be my next test and I will post some pictures side-by-side of things taken with the older phone and this phone to give you an idea of the quality of the camera. I’m ecstatic that I am able to dictate my blogs once again!
