Apple iPhone 5 is definitely one of the best looking phones in the Pakistan market. This phone brought in the era of aluminum backs that blended so seamlessly with the front glass panel that the transition was almost unnoticeable. The body of this phone with its etched back side and shiny beveled edges is not only great to look at but is also a lot easier to grip. The phone does not have its predecessor’s tendency to slide off surfaces.
iPhone 5 ha a 4 inch LED backlit IPS LCD backlit display that provides several viewing angles and is exceptionally bright and clear. A Corning Gorilla Glass on the said display ensures maximum protection. The phone has a dual-core 1.3GHz Swift CPU which combined with the superior Apple A6 chipset provides rapid response without any time lags no matter how many apps are open.
iPhone 5 comes in 3 variants of 16/32/64 GB internal memory. The price increase per variant is a little steep but it is well worth going for a higher memory handset if you plan to store music and videos on your phone as there is no microSD slot to help increase the memory on a later date. The phone has a 8MP rear and a 1.2 MP front camera which are capable of clicking satisfactory pictures even in low light. Face detection, auto focus, HD video and image recording are some of the features that the cameras have on offer.
iPhone 5 is an elegant phone meant for the elite. Go ahead and splurge on it if you want to let the world know that you have arrived. The price tag is well worth the indulgence.
