The iPhone 5 is the most beautiful iPhone that Apple has released to date (seriously - check our iPhone 5 review!) Since our review features both the white & silver model and the black & slate model, we've been getting questions about which is "better." The thing is, it's all a matter of opinion, although the black model is a bit more susceptible to scratches and scuffs. Since some people don't have an Apple Store nearby where they can check out the two color options for themselves, we've put together an iPhone 5 White vs. Black photo gallery. Check it out, as we have a bunch of comparison shots for your perousal. Let us know what you decide!
Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 to the world on September 12th, and just 9 days later, the smartphone launched. Pre-sales hit over 2 million in the first 24 hours alone, showing that there was massive demand for the newly redesigned iPhone. According to Apple, it's the best iPhone it's ever made, but does it live up to the hype? More importantly, os it worth your hard-earned cash? We've had a few days to use the iPhone 5 (as well as its built-in operating system, iOS 6,) and we’re ready to break it all down in our iPhone 5 review.
Earlier today we gave you a look at our iPhone 5 black & slate unboxing gallery, as well as our iPhone 5 white & silver unboxing gallery. Since then, we've received a few questions about how the new iPhone 5 compares to the iPhone 4S from a hardware design perspective, so we figured we would put together a third gallery for you. In our iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4S vs. iPhone Original gallery, we give you a look at the new hardware as compared to the last model, and we also throw the orignal iPhone into the mix for added measure. Head on over and take a look, and be ready for our exhaustive iPhone 5 review to drop later this evening!
The white and silver iPhone 5 is more akin to the iPhone 4S than the black and slate model, mostly due to the color of the antenna frame. Still, there are plenty of differences that make the iPhone 5 that much more striking than the 4S that came before it. Our review of the iPhone 5 is just about ready for publication, but in the meantime, we've gather a bunch of images of the chamfered white iPhone 5 body for your perusal in our iPhone 5 White & Silver unboxing gallery. Be sure to also check out our iPhone 5 Black & Slate unboxing gallery while you wait for our iPhone 5 review to drop later this evening.
The iPhone 5 is all the rage right now, and we'll have our thorough review up in just a few hours. In the meantime, we've put up an image gallery showing off the black & slate model. This is the one that's features a black anodized bezel and rear metal backing to match the dark glass. It's quite beautiful, but prone to scraches and scuff. Head on over to our iPhone 5 Black & Slate unboxing gallery for all the goodness, and keep it locked here for our full review later today.
The 5 in the iPhone 5 must mean 5 million devices, because that is exactly what Apple has announced that it sold during the opening weekend launch of Cupertino's latest and greatest tech device. Current sales shattered previous records of former generation iPhones. Additionally, Apple announced that 100 million iOS devices have upgraded to iOS 6 in the five days that it's been available. That's 25% of all iOS devices sold, in five days.
“Demand for iPhone 5 has been incredible and we are working hard to get an iPhone 5 into the hands of every customer who wants one as quickly as possible,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “While we have sold out of our initial supply, stores continue to receive iPhone 5 shipments regularly and customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date. We appreciate everyone’s patience and are working hard to build enough iPhone 5s for everyone.”
Some analysts are saying that the estimates could be much higher since some iOS devices are still in transit and have not been activated, thus, are not accounted for in the total amount.
