In terms of details, the iPhone 5 (it did get a number, unlike the new iPad) is all aluminum and glass, thinner at 7.6 mm, and lighter at 112 grams. The four-inch screen makes the phone taller, not wider, and almost brings it into a widescreen aspect ratio.Its new “Lightning” connector is smaller than in the past. Onboard cameras remain more or less the same as the 4s, though a new Panorama mode produces pictures of up to 28 megapixels from the 8-MP sensor.
Of course, it’s an LTE phone, with a single radio for talk and data. This was no surprise, and in fact Samsung was reported to have already filed suit over LTE use before the iPhone 5 had even launched.
