Apple iPhone 5 is a high-level phone released back in 2012, provisioned with a Dual-Core processing unit running at 1300 MHz, a 4 inches multi touch screen, and two cameras, an 8 MP back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this device's features when we get into specific details.

Talking about its construction quality, this cellphone is mainly built with Aluminium, which gives a top level finish and better resistance. The iPhone 5 has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.3". Apple sells this cellphone in black and white. Apparently Apple decided not to care much about the weight in this 3.95 oz phone.

Apple packed this cellphone with a gorgeous 4-inches display, and a 1136 x 640 resolution, which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 500 candela/m2 and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This cellphone is powered by a fast Dual-Core CPU speeding at 1.3 gigahertz, included in the Apple A6 chip and 1016 MB RAM. The iPhone 5 comes with a 16 GB quite large internal storage and though it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it should be enough to store hundreds of applications, although it may not be suitable if you are fan of the largest games available nowadays.

This phone has WiFi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE fast connection type and also HSPA+ connectivity, which is a lower speed 4G type or fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can connect using both CDMA and GSM.

The iPhone 5 features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front camera. It can also capture Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera includes many cool characteristics like flash, digital image stabilization, auto-focus, HDR mode, face detection shooting, time lapse video and geo tagging.

This cellphone also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The iPhone 5 has a medium 1440 mAh Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery, which is not really enough for a cellphone like this. Apple says this device has a 8 hs talk time and a 225 hours stand by time. A key issue to take into account is that the iPhone 5's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins losing capacity, leaving no choice but to buy a new cellphone or hopefully take it to someone who can disassemble the phone and switch its battery.

The iPhone 5 costs only 180 dollars, which is a great offer comparing with similar phones. No matter whether you want it to play lots of games, need this cellphone for work, you love taking pictures or will use it as a social cellphone, you will probably be very satisfied with it. Apple sells this phone with Documentation, USB Power Adapter, Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic and Lightning to USB Cable.
