Aaron reviews the iPhone 5, the newest flagship smartphone from Apple. Featuring an Apple A6 dual-core CPU clocked at 1 GHz, the iPhone 5 sports a 4-inch Retina Display (326 ppi), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 1,440 mAh battery, 4G LTE, and iOS 6. It's available now at Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint in 16, 32, and 64 GB flavors. For iPhone fans, it's a nice upgrade - and overall, it's a high-end phone that's worth recommending to many prospective buyers. But keeping the big picture in mind, iPhone no longer commands the wide lead it once had in the smartphone market. There are a ton of great high-end Android and Windows Phone devices that offer equally compelling value propositions, such as the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X.
Is iPhone 5 worth your hard-earned money, or should you look at other industry heavyweights? Part 2 of 2.
