Five Things You Should Know About The iPhone 5 Before You Buy It (Or Don’t!)

Apple Introduces iPhone 5

The latest model of Apple’s iPhone hits stores next week.  If you’re thinking about buying one, here’s five things you should know first:

  1. The screen is bigger.  The iPhone 5 boasts 4 inches of screen compared to 3.5 on the 4S.
  2. It feels less like carrying a brick around in your pocket.  The new model is 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the 4S.
  3. It has 4G compatibility.  One of the biggest laughing points about the iPhone is rectified, now you can get those super fast speeds that have already BEEN available on prepay phones.
  4. It still costs the same.  Even after adding 4G access, a better camera, a quicker processor and a stronger battery, the price point remains the same: $199 for the 16 Gigabyte, $399 to quadruple up to 64 gigs.
  5. Your current iPhone charger won’t work with it.  The iPhone 5 has a new, smaller input.  so none of those white cords you have hangin around is going to work.  not unless you spend $29 on an adaptor that is.  A $29 adapter?!  I’m SO good on that!

The iPhone 5 hits stores on Friday, September 21st, but you can preorder it starting on the 14th.  I’ve yet to buy an iPhone, and I don’t think that’s going to change for this model.  At least, not until they make one with a slide out keyboard!  How about you?  Are you buying an iPhone 5?
