Reasons Not To Buy An iPhone 5
As everyone knows, Apple introduced the iPhone 5 . The device does not have anything too innovative and Techshouters now will give you some reasons why you should not buy the iPhone 5 .
New Conector, New Accessories
Chances are that if you are considering buy a iPhone 5, And you have an iPhone. And if you have an iPad, I have very bad news for you.
All accessories that Apple had been using both devices have been modified. The company Apple has introduced a new dock connector that is not compatible with anything. The previous 30-pin connector used on iPods, iPads and iPhones has now been modified by a much smaller 8-pin.
What does this mean? You’ll need to buy all new accessories from chargers to car adapters. Ouch!
Say you want to use your old accessories. Each base adapter you want, just so you can use them, it will cost $ 29. While there is a lot of money, nobody likes having to pay just to use the old accessories.
Lte Is Far From Universal
Of course we all want to have 4G or LTE connectivity. Unfortunately, despite the publicity of the operators, LTE is not everywhere. This means you get 4G or LTE will not be as easy in Europe and the United States, which is not a feature that really makes a big difference.
Also, if you can have a connection or super fast 4G LTE, you must be careful with your data consumption, as this type of connections the settled much faster.
The Bigger Screen Will Make Many Applications Look Bad
Developers now have five sizes of screen to encode. We display the original iPhone, iPhone Retina display, iPad display original iPad Retina screen, and now has added the new 4-inch screeniPhone 5.
Of course, over time the applications are updated to the new panel, but it will take some time. This means that you may have a new iPhone with which you can hold everything you want, but the applications that run on it will not be too good.
Like all products of Apple, the iPhone 5 is an expensive device. Worst of all is that the device will not only expensive, but also plans to adqurirlo will be. For example, in the United States will be available on AT & T, Sprint and Verizon, and the service cheaper monthly will be around at least $ 80.
That is, not only have to pay a fortune to get the iPhone 5 , but then with the plans.
It should be mentioned that if the iPhone 5 is put on sale with prepaid plans would have solved part of the problem, although it is unclear whether it will provide operators with such plans.
Competition: Best Options
Given the preliminary numbers ( 2 million pre-orders in 24 hours ), we can say that the latest smartphone from Apple will surely sell tens of millions of units and is emerging as a great device, but the competition he has will play against . Its main contentientes find the HTC One X, Nokia Lumia 920 and, of course, the Samsung Galaxy S3 .
The iPhone 5 has a big change from its previous versions as it has a 4-inch screen in front of the historic 3.6-inch, but if you really want a big screen, then you better look elsewhere. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 , for example, has a huge screen of 5.5 and most of the best Android smartphones have panels of at least 4.5 inches. Even the latest Windows phones, like the Lumia 920, have screens of at least 4.5 inches.
Furthermore, most of these devices are superior to iPhone 5 in their performance.
